"Pierce and Dogboy are the Carney family mischief makers!Â Pierce is the quintessential bratty younger brother, and Dogboy is Pierce's pal, a loving pet, and...Â a fur covered wingman!Â Pierce relishes his gross-out gig as "The Human Pincushion" in the family sideshow act.Â (He's got more holes than a boardwalk put-put course).Â When Dogboy isn't doing double duty as the family's household hound, and Pierce's partner in crime, he wows the crowds at Barker's sideshow with his furry faceÂ and outrageous animal antics!"

The Domo Zombie Apocalypse has begun!Following the success of DarkHorseComics' 8" Domo series, is a second series of Domo flocked vinyl figures this time at 5.5". The 5.5" Domo flocked vinyl figure comes in five colors: Classic Brown (limited edition), Olive Green (shown - limited edition of 800), Ruby Red (limited edition of 800), Earl Grey (limited edition of 800), and Polar White (limited edition of 500). Domo who?: Domo (ã©ãƒ¼ã‚‚ãã‚“, DÅmo-kun) is the mascot of Japan's NHK television station, appearing in several 30 second stop-motion sketches shown as station identification during shows. Domo is described as "a strange creature that hatched from an egg." Domo's favorite food is Japanese-style meat and potato stew, and he has a strong dislike for apples, due to an unexplained mystery in his DNA. Domo can only communicate via producing a low-pitched noise which sounds somewhat like his own name, but other characters appear to understand him. Domo-kun is known to pass gas repeatedly when nervous or upset. Domo also likes music, particularly Guitar Wolf and MAX, two real-life bands.
Hit the Jump for the reviewPackaging: Quite a nice little package. There isn't much information on the packaging, It's straight forward with playful images of Domo on each side of the box.Â The viewing window is big enough to see the full Domo figure in all his fluffy and flocked glory Vinyl: A great piece of vinyl, with no flaws.Â The paint is spot on as it ought to be.Â The flocking is great all over and also serves to hide any seams on the figure.Â There isn't much detail in the character to begin with but this figure captures the essence of Domo.Â Domo's arms can be moved and posed in various ways, seems fitting to have the green Domo in a zombie-like pose.Â Â :D Downsides:(?) Technically not a downside, but it would have been nice if the legs could be posed aswell, who wouldn't want a lil Domo sitting on their desk?Â Although it doesn't detract anything from the figure, I feel it would've been alot nicer to have glossy beads for the eyes. Quality: 8/10 Durability: 9/10 Fun: 9/10 Overall: 8.6/10 Despite the lack of articulation in the legs, Domo is a good solid figure and the smaller size is better suited to the simplistic Domo-Kun character than the 8" version. Definitely worth picking up. With various colourways, its easy to pick a Domo that suits your tastes. Awesome character, nice packaging and a sweet colourway *thumbs up*
