Cerevo’s first officially licensed smart toy DOMINATOR from Gen Urobuchi’s hit thriller anime, Psycho-Pass, is hitting the global market, and pre-orders are set to begin on 20 March.
This replica “smart toy” will be making its international debut during the Silicon Valley Comic Con (18-20 March) and Middle East Film & Comic Con (7-9 April). There are actually two versions for these 1:1 scale replica Dominators. The Standard Edition costs USD$799, and the Special Edition, which costs USD$899.
The difference between the Standard and Special Editions is that the Special Edition features a grip made from natural rosewood with a polished finish.
According to Cerevo, pre-orders will be fulfilled on a first come, first served basis.
Prices exclude shipping and local taxes, Cerevo may be unable to ship DOMINATOR to some locations due to local laws. Visitors to Silicon Valley Comic Con will be able to pre-order DOMINATOR in person at Cerevo’s booth and limited numbers may be available for purchase pending approval from local authorities.
Middle East Film & Comic Con visitors may also be able to purchase directly at Cerevo’s booth depending on approval from local authorities. Pre-orders will also be taken via the official CEREVO website: https://dominator.cerevo.com/en/

Automatic Transformation Between Paralyzer and Eliminator Mode
Using geared motors provided by Nidec Corporation, DOMINATOR can automatically transform between Paralyzer and Eliminator modes according to a target’s Crime Coefficient score. DOMINATOR is the world’s first smart toy to commercialize an electrically‐powered deformation mechanism.
Crime Coefficient Analysis
When DOMINATOR is aimed at a target, it will automatically analyze and readout the target’s Crime Coefficient score. Connecting a smartphone will allow DOMINATOR to capture and stream an image from its built-in camera to the companion smartphone app and overlay Crime Coefficient data on the target image.
Official Voice-over by Noriko Hidaka
DOMINATOR features over 100 different voice samples from Noriko Hidaka who provides the Dominator voiceover for PSYCHO-PASS. DOMINATOR can automatically playback voiceovers depending on the situation, such as grasping the grip, detecting an authorized person and more. DOMINATOR has a built-in speaker for voiceover and sound effects and can also playback sound via a connected smartphone’s speakers.
Grip Touch Sensor and over 200 LEDs
DOMINATOR has a touch sensor built into the left and right-hand sides of the grip, enabling detection when held in either hand. Just like in PSYCHO-PASS you can register your DOMINATOR to activate when holding the grip or lock out unauthorised users. DOMINATOR’s body has a total of 217 full colors, high brightness LEDs, the LEDs have authentic lighting patterns to replicate Paralyzer, Eliminator or charging modes.
