Dark Horse is proud to continue bringing you exciting new designs for our little pal Domo with three new products.

Domo continues to enjoy the Qee treatment from our collaborators at Hong Kong’s Toy2R. They are in a “mystery box” blind assortment as before. These popular 2” Qee figures have continually sold out, appearing in stores and galleries worldwide.

Ready for a cup of coffee that bites back? Sink your teeth into this one before it does the same to you. We have worked directly with the folks at Japan’s NHK television to create this new sculpted ceramic mug. It’s the goods.

We all know that our pal Domo has many outfits. Domo is a bit of a chameleon, and enjoys many different sports and leisure activities. So will you, as you and your friends mix and match these clever magnets into a seemingly endless series of combinations.
