With the hatching of an egg and the words “Domo, Konnichiwa” emanating
from a nearby television, a star was born. Domo – known in his native
Japan as Domo-kun – appeared in 1998 as the spokesmonster for NHK
(Nippon Hoso Kyokai), Japan’s public television station, starring in
several 30-second stop-motion animated shorts. In the following years,
he became first a Japanese and then an international icon, and now he’s
made his way to the United States for the first time in the form of a
series on Nicktoons, a multitude of Domo merchandise, and the
first-ever Domo series of mimobot Designer USB Flash Drives!
The Domo Series 1 line will include 3 different Domo versions. The regular Domo will be limited to a run of 3,000 pieces. The Rasta Domo (pictured above) will be slightly more limited with a run of 2,500 mimobots. And the Ninja Domo (pictured below) comes fitted with an interesting new helmet and is limited to 2,000 pieces.
