Kaiyodo Articulates Domo With New Revoltech Action Figure

Not content to merely cosplay as DC Comics superheroes, NHK and sometime Target spokesfurson, and all-around manga star Domo is getting a full-on Revoltech action figure from Kaiyodo. Set to debut in April for around $30-40, the new Domo figure is highly articulated and comes packed with a TV, a remote control, a bowl of rice, chopsticks, four swappable hands and four sets of interchangable eyes. There’s “mad” eyes, “teary” eyes, closed eyelid eyes and sleepy eyes. That provides something like 128 combinations that can be mixed and matched and rotated to a collector’s content, which is good because Domo is an expressive fellow.

As pointed out by Kotaku, the figure does have a passing resemblance to… well, a turd. This unique design challenge could probably have been surmounted by flocking the figure the way Mattel’s famously made Moss Man shine matte-style, but provided you aren’t put out by this toy’s lumpy articulated body, funky plastic texture and overall sheen, it seems like an otherwise fine action figure. In fact, the more I look at it, the less turdly it seems. Your mileage may vary, though.
