Domo Flash Coming From Funko Toys!

Category: Collectibles — By @ 10:20 am

Salutations Speed Readers,

Funko has announced that they will be teaming up with DC Comics again to bring us some Vinyl Domo collectibles including two versions of The Flash.

Now for those that are unfamiliar with Domo, Domo started out as the mascot for the Japanese TV station, NHK and made his first appearances in stop-motion animated shorts. He quickly grew to worldwide fame and now you can find him in comics, games, toys and all kinds of other merchandise. You can learn more about him by visiting Domonation.com.

The first stands 3.75 inches tall and is similar to past Funko Pop Vinyl releases:

The second will be 2.5 inches tall, also made of vinyl and will be blind packed along with 13 other DC characters. Blind packing refers to the practice of packaging a product as to give no discernible evidence as to what may be in the box. The first picture of Domo x DC Blind Box Vinyl Flash is courtesy of Action Figure Insider:

As mentioned in the AFI article some Domo figurines will be rarer than others with Flash being packed at a normal ratio of 2/24. This handy diagram provided by Funko might help explain things better:

I, for one am pretty excited for these guys. I always found the Domo character to be pretty cool visually and I like the combination of DC heroes and Domo. Some look a little funky but I think the Flash Domos came out looking great, especially the 3.75 inch one. I’m hoping these guys will be easy enough to track down online.

Domo x DC Comics 3.75 inch Vinyl collection will go on sale February 14th, 2013 while the Domo x DC Blind Box set goes on sale February 28th, 2013.

Who else is a fan of Domo? Who just plans on picking them up for the DC Comics connection? Let us know in the comments below.

Thanks for reading,

    There was a big Domo promotion in the Target store during Halloween some years back. At the time I had no idea what the thing was. Like the big Flash (ear thingees pull it off.) The pictures of Batman look okay, but I just can’t see the others, especially the Superman ones and, really, any with brown. Those look like potato tots or something.

    Domo Flash makes me think of DCAU or Lego Flash on an eating rampage. I’ll buy it if I see it and at a decent price. :)

      Okay, I checked out the Funko site and….now I just *have* to get the 3.75″ Flash and blue Batman. Batman is holding up a batarang. Also a broken SuperFriends batmobile. In my mind eye Bats is chasing after Flash for breaking the Batmobile. I gotta get the pair for the comedy value alone.

        Belated Clarification: Sadly, I didn’t mean that Funko is providing a broken Batmobile with the 3.75″ Batman. (If only.)

    I think I’ll get one of the Flash Domos and maybe the Riddler. These guys are so cute.
