What separates this Domo Qee blind boxed series and other similar mini-figure blind box series is that each Domo Qee box contains one component of a “Build-A-Domo” clear transparent figure. When the correct six components are accumulated, the buyer can put together the pieces to complete the bonus figure. There will not be a “Build-A-Domo” component in the 2009 San Diego Comic Con exclusive Domo Qee.
