Dark Horse has announced a special exclusive Domo variant to be offered at Chicago Comic and Entertainment Expo (C2E2) April 16–18, 2010.
The convention exclusive features Domo covered with a Hawaiian-style print, setting it apart from previously released figures in the series. Only 1,200 of this special variant have been manufactured, and they will be made available to both casual fans and collectors at the Dark Horse Comics booth in the exhibit hall on a first-come, first-served basis.
"We made a Domo Qee exclusive for Comic-Con International in San Diego last summer," Dark Horse’s vice president of product development, David Scroggy, recalled. "We were surprised to find it had sold out by the end of the first day of the show. We made even fewer of them this time around, and as this promises to be a very well-attended first-time event, we advise attendees to drop by early if they are interested in owning one."
The release of the C2E2 variant closely follows the on-sale date of the second "mystery box" series of Domo Qee toys, which are scheduled for release on March 31, 2010. This blind-box assortment features figures individually packed at random. The only way to know which is inside is to purchase it.
