Always excited to see new product from Mezco Toys and always excited to see some new Domo’s. They always rank as one of my favorites at their Toy Fair Booth each year. Also pretty great to see them expnad to different types of collectibles out side of the figures.Check out the press release we received regarding the new line up and products for later this year.
Received earlier today from Mezo Toys-
“For Immediate ReleaseMezco’ New Line Featuring Domo Bobbleheads and Action Figures Already Generating Early Buzz will Hit Retailers Later this Year New York, NY, May10 2012 – Branded entertainment company Big Tent Entertainment and Mezco Toyz, a leader in collectable action figures, doll manufacturing and marketing, announced a licensing agreement for a new line of collectibles featuring iconic character Domo. The new Domo line, which is expected to hit stores later this year, will include bobbleheads, clip-on figures, action figures, and wind-up walking toys.Mezco Toyz unveiled the assortment of new collectible Domo products to much fanfare at the New York International Toy Fair in February. The Domo collectibles also generated early buzz from some of the biggest pop culture websites including MTV.com and Electric Playground. The new Domo collectibles will be available at specialty stores later this year.
“The Domo fanbase is always hungry for new and exciting collectibles featuring our brown fuzzy friend,” said Rich Maryyanek, Chief Marketing Officer, Big Tent Entertainment. “This new line really captures the essence of the character and that was very evident in the looks of the faces of those at Toy Fair. We can’t wait for the public to have that same amazing reaction.”
“The unveiling of our Domo products at Toy Fair in February caused a tremendous reaction. Fans are clearly excited by what we have planned for Domo” said Mike Drake, Mezco’s Director Of Special Projects. “It is especially interesting to see how many people, even when they are unfamiliar with Domo, are drawn to the character and want to learn more. Domo just naturally makes new friends and fans wherever he goes!”
Domo’s unique look and personality as the mascot for Japanese public broadcaster NHK quickly catapulted the character into one of the Internet’s biggest sensations. As the reigning poster child for personalized, user-generated content, Domo has found a home as a pop culture icon within the online viral community with hundreds of thousands of fan-made images, websites and videos posted to websites such as YouTube, Facebook and Flickr, among others. Now more than a decade later, the lovable fuzzy brown character’s cult status continues to grow with product flying off retail shelves as well as a popular Facebook game called “Planet Domo” available at http://apps.facebook.com/planetdomo.

Pharaoh Hounds on the horizon!

Posted by OG On September - 5 - 2011

Ever since the huge and continued success of the Tutz line by END at Argonaut Resins, he’s been teasing something new. A few months back we some the first WIP pics of the Pharoah Hound and earlier today we got the first full on shot of a few finished pieces. There is no actual release date for these but we are hoping maybe just in time for NYCC. Either way check out a few pics of these awesome pieces.

One of the things that has drawn me to the Tutz and now the Pharaoh Hounds is how tight the sculpt is. It’s so clean and sharp that you can’t help love the design. Combine that with the clean details in the painted versions and all the variations in the colorways of the Tutz I know the hounds will not fail to please!
