DOMO-Kun Fans Rejoice! Big Tent Entertainment and Mezco Toyz have recently inked a licensing deal for a new line of collectibles based on the popular NHK TV Mascot Domo.
While it’s true that DOMO-Kun’s somewhat simplistic character design makes it easy to create a toy on your own (really, just a brown block with limbs, and the eyes and mouth can be paper cut outs pasted on the face), Mezco Toyz is a well-reknowned manufacturer and marketer of collectible action figures and dolls, which means we can expect only high quality and sturdy DOMO-Kun merchandise to come out of the whole deal.
The Domo-Kun line of collectibles from Mezco Toyz will include bobbleheads, clip-ons, action figures, and even wind up walkers. Some of the DOMO-kun collectibles were already demoed earlier this year at the New York International Toy Fair, but actual retail release is scheduled for later this year.
