Woah. I can't wait to go to Target this year.

I actually dressed up as Domo-Kun two years ago, but everyone thought I was that Domino's Fudge'Ems guy (those advertisements where popular at the time).

I always liked Domo-kun but his merch is sadly unavailable in Australia depending on where you look. Poor me, deprived of Domo-kun...

I worked at Target over the summer. I know a lot of their back-to-school stuff featured Domo, but I didn't know they had this much of a hardon for the little guy.

They cant popularize Domo like this, it kills some of the mistique of there being people who dont know what he is.
Though I do wonder if that giant hanging domo is for sale..

ok your Target has way more halloween stuff than mine. i wanna come out and shop with you. Sunday maybe? alo i bought the marshmallow Frankenstein Domo candy... so nasty. i took one bite and it tasted like it was infused with plastic. Like a marshmallow candy and some plastic went through Seth Brundle's telepod together and became one. sooooo nasty.

I can't help but feel that this is very wrong for some reason.

Franken-Domo looks intoxicated beyond belief. It could be he's also drinking orange poison from a beaker though.

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!

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.

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.

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.
