At the world premiere of the new original episode of My Hero Academia, UA Heroes Battle, Crunchyroll’s Tim Lyu announced a number of collaborations between My Hero Academia and other brands. The biggest fan reaction by far came with the announcement that My Hero Academia has partnered with Squishmallows on a supersoft set of My Hero Academia ultraplush.

Izuku Midoriya, Katsuki Bakugo, Ochaco Uraraka and Shoto Todoroki are all being given the super-cute Squishmallow treatment, with more to come. (The evil grin on Katsuki’s face is particularly adorable.)

8-10 inches long, the dolls will run $12.99 -$14.99. While no U.S. release date was announced, the four Academia squishes that have been announced so far can be found for sale already on eBay. And they look completely irresistible.
