Domo-kun is originally a mascot for Japanese public broadcast company NHK. In the stop-motion anime he appears in, Domo-kun doesn't quite look like a turd. This upcoming figurine? Total turd.

Domo-kun is the latest character to come to live in Kaiyodo's Revoltech line of highly poseable figures.

Revoltech's Dookie-kun, sorry, Domo-kun figure goes on sale next April in Japan.
