Hato Moa and Erick Scarecrow have teamed up to launch a Kickstarter project that will create plush toys of three of Hatoful Boyfriend’s romanceable pigeons. The campaign began on November 3, asking for $25,000 in backing to make the toys. As of 10:30am CT, over $22,000 had been raised by over 390 backers to create the Hatoful Boyfriend Official Plush Project stuffed animals.
The Hatoful Boyfriend Official Plush Project’s goal is to make 5” stuffed toys of Ryouta Kawara, a rock dove that’s Hiyoko’s childhood friend, Shuu Iwamine, the chukar partridge and school doctor who’s known for… certain proclivities, and Okosan, a pudding-loving fantail pigeon. Each toy will include a hang-tag and PVC character keychain of the character in their human form. (Note: Okosan doesn’t have a human form, so his PVC tag shows him in uniform.)
For a $16 investment, people can get Early Bird pricing on a single Shuu plush. For $25, someone can get one of each plush, one keychain for each, and a Steam code for the PC version of Hatoful Boyfriend. The $75 option will get you all of the $25 backer rewards, as well as a plush of either Souma Isa or Maid Ryouta. The highest pledge level, $1,000, gets you all of the plush toys and one of 10 12” Shuu stuffed animals.
The Hatoful Boyfriend Official Plush Project toys are expected to ship out in May 2016.
