DOMO-Ku Qee series come in Blind Box in 2 inch style, The 2.5" figures will be feature the likeness of Domo, the iconic viral superstar who was first introduced to the world in 1998 by Japanese Broadcaster, NHK and is represented worldwide (except Asia) by Big Tent Ent.
each individual figure contains a component of a special "Build-A-Domo" transparent figure. By assembling six of these components, a new variant figure is created by the consumer. Each counter display contains enough pieces for two of these; each master carton yields ten of this special item when all the pieces are assembled.
Chase figures are being produced in addition to the common figures in the Domo assortment; with a total of 15 different versions with various levels of scarcity.
Starting from a very unusual place as an advertising icon, Domo's unique look and personality has catapulted the character from 400 television spots in Japan into one of the Internet's biggest sensations, sparking worldwide recognition. As the poster child for personalized, user-generated content, Domo has been able to transition from popularity within Japan to a worldwide following, spawning countless fan-made images, websites and videos, along with a first-ever licensed product line including plush, toys, fashion and collectibles selling at major trend retailers nationwide. Most recently, Domo has taken America by storm, being featured prominently at major retailers all over the U.S. and even starring in his first worldwide manga.

TOY2R extends its thanks to all of the artists who contributed to this project and made it a success.
Toy2R demonstrated the art of designer toys and the D.I.Y movement for top government officals and premier business.We are very appreciated of our audiences and artists who gave us such a valuable opportunity to promote our concept of "Anyone Can Design".
TOY2R is proud to present the STICKER QEE project. Created to display the innovation and support of the art of designer toys, TOY2R put together this 36" QEE BEAR during the award ceremony at the 2008 Hong Kong Award for Industries, one of the most influential commercial organizations in Asia. TOY2R was honored to receive the recognition as the Grand Winner in the category of Innovation and Creativity.
This custom 36" QEE bear was created during the award ceremony, so TOY2R had to develop a way to quickly customize the figure in a short period of time. With the support of 66 artists worldwide - TOY2R secured art from contributing artists and created stickers to represent each one.
The final result is seen an fine example of the collaborative efforts on a D.I.Y. project to bring worldwide attention to the genre.
For those who missed our show, you also welcomed to visit our sticker qee's exhibition in Design Gallery.
