Tadao I used to work at a movie theater and the only company that wouldn't allow us to give away the cardboard standees or posters was Disney. We had to distroy them and we were supposed to take pictures, but we never did.

Tox Hi, I just joined this site and I happened to come across this. I work at Target and I can answer all these questions assuming you guys haven't found the answers yet. Any of the signs with Domo on them cannot be given away or sold because they're licensed. Also the large hanging from the ceiling ones can't be donated or sold either so we're gonna have them sitting around as our mascot at our store for a long time. They were selling small dolls dressed in costumes but there was a very limited number of them. I was fortunate enough to get one. There was a pumpkin, dracula, the devil and frankenstein doll. I didn't quite understand what Domo was doing at Target either, but hey not my decision. So I hope that answered your questions and now I'm off to read more of this cool site.

JakeOfAllTrades YES! My local Anime shop has one Domo-kun, all by his lonesome. Hopefully I can give him a good home once I get paid...

porkboy You could probably alter the devil Domo but I don't know if there will be any brown material under his horns to prevent buying material to patch the top of his head.

Thanos If you're looking for a really nice Domo plush, head over to the toy section and check the clearance racks! I just scored a giant-size Domo for $3.98. Sweet!

Y-Hat I just came back with my very own Domo-Kun plush, and it's as good as I thought it'd be. Heads up though- if you want a regular plush, buy the Pumpkin Domo so you can cut the costume off of him with scissors. They don't sell regular Domos.

Lothalis The different Domo's are quite cool, but I now can't help wondering where I can get that Blood Orange Jones soda here in Canada! (It's listed as 3.99 for a six pack in one of the Photo's...I'm not that insane...)

Julio Domo-Kun rules.

whod99 I too saw this wondrous ad campaign at Target, and I'm not going to lie--it is awesome. I was literally speechless when I went grocery shopping this weekend, and I spent much more than I should have on awesome Domo-Kun Halloween stuff. Target has done the improbable, and may they prosper for it that we might see more of this type of shenanigans in the future.

Y-Hat I am taking the college shuttle to Target Friday (I have no car) and buying me a Domo-Kun.
Sep 17th, 2008 08:33 PM
MarioRPG Pumpkin-Domo is god damn adorable.

Oh, and RoG, I smell a contest giveaway please. We don't have Target in Canada.

Mockery Target is selling plush toy versions of Domo-Kun, including a mini pack of four Halloween Domo toys. What's odd is that you can't purchase any of the Domo stuff on their site... you have to go into the stores to get it. That's fine if you have a Target near you, but for people who don't, it sucks because they'll likely have to enter bidding wars on eBay just to get their Halloween Domo-Kun fix.

stonewar I was in Target friday...Where was the freaking novelty candy? They have Jones Soda and haunted houses made of cocoa krispies and 3 aisles of fun size candies. Where the heck is the wierd shit. Heck the dollar store down the road at least had spooky lables to repackage all your liquer for the occation.

MrWarranty 1) Buy Domo-kun at Target
2) Get kittens from Humane Society

Your Halloween display is now complete!

JakeOfAllTrades Heck, I didn't know much about him either until I saw this.

And I thought Osamu Tezuka plots had casts of crazy characters...
Sep 16th, 2008 08:08 AM
resident-adam Holy-Shit, TARGET knows of the DOMO-KUN? EPIC
Sep 16th, 2008 06:29 AM
greenimp awesome! but this probably wont go to australia, what with hallowen not being very big over here
Sep 16th, 2008 04:56 AM
JakeOfAllTrades My local Anime collectable shop up the road might be able to order in a Domo for me. Surprisingly there are no weeaboos in Australia, only geeks and nerds who are interested in Anime and non-Anime stuff as well, plus the occasional hipster who desperately needs an Astro Boy tee shirt to make his image and identity constructed until the next trend comes along.

Also, funny how Australians never have Halloween displays in shops unless it's a two dollar shop. Target in Australia is a lot more respectable than to use a Japanese mascot yet not sell anything related to him.

Copper Makes me wish I worked retail *there* to get the promo stuff when they take it down. (And, 9 times out of 10, they will *not* give it to customers that ask because either A. It really does have to be destroyed or B. Most of the employees have called dibs on the stuff already.) Closest thing I've got is a plain plush Domo at my store. I suppose I could dress it up, but premades are so much more fun.

Could be why, too, they took Domo off of Gaia. He used to be a forum "smiley" but was removed. I know some people (self included) who are grumbly about that.

Jquick I need a Domo pinata. Now.
Sep 15th, 2008 11:37 PM
HowardC This pretty much confirms it... target isn't a real store, it's just a long and twisted performance art piece put together by some rich dudes with nothing better to do.

Seriously... wtf is wrong with target? Their commericals don't make any sense, their store is so offensively painted that I get a migrain when I even peer inside one and now this? How could domo possibly attract anyone besides a VERY small portion of the US population? It's like they look at what walmart and kmart do marketing-wise, which btw makes them a butt-load of cash, and then say "well that's making them money, let's do the exact opposite."


Rant aside, domo is cool, he just doesn't belong in target.
Sep 15th, 2008 10:46 PM
KrytenSyxx Target is teasing us big time. So far the only real Domo Kun merchandie they have are the damn pinatas. We demand angry Domos in various Halloween outfits!
Sep 15th, 2008 07:08 PM
Metal Misfit No idea who this is.
Sep 15th, 2008 05:51 PM
Dimnos So... do they sell any plush Domos? Like the ghost-Domo or the fanken-Domo?
