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.
Continuing its San Diego Comic-Con exclusive rollout, Funko has revealed a slew of new Wacky Wobbler and Pop! Vinyl figures that fans of DC Comics and Masters of the Universe (and... Disco?) may be eager to see at its booth. Next week Funkophiles can get their hands on the Metallic Skeletor Wacky Wobbler, Metallic Batman '66 Wacky Wobbler, Metallic Domo Batman, Domo Man of Steel, Black Suit Man of Steel, Disco Skeletor and Bloody Rorschach.
Covered in a felty fur, the perpetually agape Domo may not come off as an edible kind of monster, but where there's a craving, there's a recipe. Despite broad fan fervor for the cute brick of love, everyone from bento boxers to cookie connoisseurs seem to want a piece of one of Japan's cutest stop-motion animated exports...
