Domo Aquaman

sg
From newest F.O.A.M.er Brandon Mayo come these pics of of a Domo-style Aquaman figure, which is (of course) part of a larger DC set.

I will admit upfront this is one of those items that completely baffles me; it must be a generational thing. Why would anyone want an Aquaman (or a Batman, or a Two-Face...) that looks like a fudgesicle with teeth? I mean, I've seen these little Domo guys around, and now that there's an Aquaman one I just kind of go "Eh, okay" and move on.

Nevertheless, welcome to F.O.A.M. Brandon!

Yeah, I don't get all these Domo or Ugly Doll things either. But if you're into that sort of thing, there's tons of stuff out there for you!

I just think the DC Domos are cute, that's all.

Regardless, thank you for the F.O.A.M. membership.

It is more like a creature wearing Aquaman's costume! :)

What is the Mystery of these Minis?

^They are blind-boxed, I believe. So you don't know who you're getting unless you open the box.

^Exactly. Aquaman is one of the more common figures.

I guess you can group me on the other side of the generation gap :P I tried to pull one of these but ended up with a (fantastic) silver age Robin and two new 52 Supermen. At 6 bucks a pop at my shop that was about as much as I'd spend on a full Aquaman figure, so I retired my efforts at that point.

Fun Fact: Domo is an incredibly popular character in Japan . . . who's made up . . . yup, you guessed it . . . POOP.

Funner Fact: Domo-Kun is a mascot for NHK and is not made of poop, rather he's a strange creature hatched from an egg. His only scatological reference is his tendency to flatulate when nervous.
I have never seen these DC versions, anywhere in Japan, but I wish I did!
