Good Smile Company has announced more Haachama and Fubuki Nendoroid figures, joining their growing lineup of Hololive merchandise.
The Haachama and Fubuki join fellow first-gen Vtuber Natsuiro Matsuri as part of Hololive Nendoroid lineup, though no release date has been given for them.
Goodsmile showed off the unpainted sculpt for the Fubuki Nendoroid, whereas the Haachama one was shown complete with its would-be completed paintjob, pending full approval.
Nendoroids are known to come with multiple accessories, though neither of these figures have been shown with theirs.
Meanwhile, the Natsuiro Matsuri Nendoroid is also available for preorder, with more photos of the figure including the alternate faceplates.
Hololive And Its Rising Popularity
It’s no coincidence that the three first-gen Vtubers would receive news about their Nendoroids today, as today also marks the From 1st anniversary concert for Hololive’s first generation.
Good Smile has made a big push for Hololive merchandise following the Winter WonFes, where they showed off multiple Hololive Figmas based off of the popular 3rd Generation, as well as a line of Pop Up Parade figures based off of the Gamers generation, which also includes Fubuki.
Hololive has gained considerable momentum in the past year, with their talents doing promotions for Xbox to help promote GamePass in Japan.
The company started as a virtual avatar application, allowing users to access what was basically portable performance capture and use it to move 2d avatars. It since boomed since the parent company, Cover Corporation combined the technology with Idol culture to create a whole host of streamers, spanning 5 mainline “Generations” as well as multiple offshoots including an English branch, 2 generations of Indonesian Vtubers as well as a male offshoot, Holostars.
Their next big step was Hololive Alternative, an ambitious multimedia project including a game, which the company is openly recruiting for talent to work on .
