Tomopop Review: Funko's Mystery Mini N52 Batman Domo

May 28 // Scarecroodle
Figure Name: New 52 Batman Domo (Domo DC Mystery Minis)Figure Maker: FunkoRetail Price: US$6Available at: Entertainment Earth | Think Geek | Barnes & Noble Funko's Domo DC Mystery Minis is a line of 2.5-inch tall blind-boxed Domo figurines decorated to resemble famous DC Comics superheroes and villains. It's worth nothing that this is just ONE of Funko's DC-themed Domo lines, as there are also POP! figurines (as seen, along with the Mystery Minis, in my award-winning Mr. Domo Goes DC) and a plush series. As per my tradition with blind-boxed figures, I picked up one (and only one) pack and drew a New 52-styled Batman Domo. While nowhere near my top choice (Riddler), I nonetheless found myself happy with the figurine. Before I quickly discuss the figurine, let's take a look at the packaging. The front and two sides of the box feature illustrations depicting some of the possible selections popping out from different angles. While cute, it's certainly nothing special in terms of packaging art. You will, however, notice the dent in one side of the box which was apparently made by Batdomo's "ear". Given that the packaging was originally shrink-wrapped, something like this should have tipped me off to its contents. The back of the package features the rarity chart, which includes illustrations of the alternate selections. Most have a 2/24 rarity with "Detective" Batman (1/24), Two-Face (1/24), classic Superman (1/72), and Clark Kent (1/144) being the only exceptions. Batman and his ilk comprise the majority of this series, although Superman hogs some limelight as well with his 3 figurines including the 1-per-master case Clark Kent. The full selection is as follows: "Detective" Batman, classic Robin, New 52 (N52) Batman, movie (?) Batman, N52 Robin (Damian Wayne), Clark Kent, classic Superman, N52 Superman, Flash, Green Lantern, Shazam (formerly Captain Marvel), Aquaman, Two-Face, and Riddler. Photos can be seen here. Of course, the first question that probably jumps to mind is "Where's Domo Wonder Woman?" Perhaps we'll see "her" should Funko release a series 2. Domo New 52 Batman (here on referred to as "Batdomo") features a whopping zero points of articulation, which is to be expected from this sort of a figurine. The figurine features seams at the waist, arms, and cape, which I suspect was done to make the parts compatible with the other Minis. While I would naturally assume that most of the detail on this figurine was owed to paint, the utility belt almost seems to be a sticker from the way it overlaps with another portion. However, there doesn't appear to be another resembling a seam or upraised area on the belt. The paint looks decent enough, although the translucent utility belt (under which you can see the costume's normal detail) is a little odd. The other nuisance is that the paint seems to a glare-magnet at times. Batdomo's cuteness is apparent from all angles. The cape is adorably sculpted and complements the overall design. He would no doubt look great facing a Batdomo signal shining in the sky which, I imagine, would be the outline of a very toothy bat. For scale, we once again have NECA's Gremlins Mogwai series Stripe (because everybody should own one of NECA's Mogwai figures). Then again, perhaps a Batman figure would make more sense as a reference point: And here we have Batdomo next to Mattel's DC Universe Classics Public Enemies series Batman, which should better illustrate that 2.5-inches height is pretty small... but you probably already knew that. It's also a reasonable size for a blind-boxed item. While US$6 is a somewhat average (or better) price for a blind-boxed item of this size, I can't help but think that it's roughly half the price of the POP! versions despite being a good deal smaller. I suppose there's something to be said for the novelty of a blind-boxed item but the POP! line, with its visible choices, might be the better value depending on your wants. Of course, the Mystery Minis series has a handful of characters absent from the POP! series which does give it a unique selling point especially considering that these characters (like Riddler or Two-Face) may never appear in the larger format. If nothing else, it may certainly be worth buying one pack of the Domo DC Mystery Minis just to try your luck.
