Hello mfc! Hope you're all doing well and staying safe!
Have you ever had a figure you are SO in love with, decide right then and there you have to get it... and then find out it's an exclusive. Whether it's exclusive to a region, a limited quantity or just obscenely expensive, what's an exclusive or limited figure that you would love to have, but for whatever reason can't?

I don't have too many but these ones bug me the most:

1. ITEM #208350 one of my biggest grails, and one I doubt I'll ever get for anything even close to retail, TP Zelda is probably my favorite Zelda ever and her design is so beautiful, right now I'm hunting down her figma (which is also overpriced imo) but one day I would love to have her or her variant ITEM #377831 others from the same company I'd love to have are ITEM #532689 ITEM #260940
ITEM #12060 ITEM #84463 ITEM #12060 ITEM #2169 ITEM #55550

2. ITEM #2550 as much as I love his regular version as well, the bright pink is just so JoJo I absolutely adore it

3. ITEM #463456 this Ed was one of my longest grails that I finally got a couple months ago, not that his regular is bad or anything it just completely pales in comparison to his exclusive edition. Truly one of the most beautiful figures I own. However it made searching for him a lot harder and a lot more expensive

4. ITEM #211409 another grail of mine I was recently able to get! I bought her off a friend and she is hands down one of my favorites, her sculpt is stunning and she's one of the best snk figures out there, her regular edition is also really beautiful but the extra roof looks so cool and makes me feel like I'm watching a scene straight from the anime

5. ITEM #1076365 this exclusive annoys me because the price jump for metallic finish feels a bit ridiculous. I immediately fell in love with this kit when my co-worker showed it to me and I began running around like a headless chicken trying to get in a pre-order anywhere before she released. I used amazon, which I rarely do for figures, and surprise surprise they cancelled my pre-order -_- luckily I was able to get her for a good price from a friend but it's still annoying. I was very tempted to get the metallic version instead as it does look pretty cool in my opinion, but at the end of the day I'm happy with my regular version and she looks great

6. ITEM #694948 & ITEM #894467 these two haunt me as I don't feel I would be happy with them, if I ever got them, unless it was their exclusive edition. Particularly Mari's, I have a thing for winking figures and it's the icing on the cake for her figure, unfortunately both are a bit too expensive for me, regular or limited, but one day I would love to have them

7. ITEM #604194 this gal in particular I have quite a history with, I consider her 'the figure that got me into figures' at least, collecting them the way I do now, and particularly her bonus faceplate. I payed a pretty price for her BNIB with the bonus, she was way too much even though she is gorgeous and was the first grail I ever achieved so she is quite a sentimental figure, albeit with a bitch of a price tag

8. ITEM #397155 why was she an exclusive!!! One of the best sonico designs EVER imho, her aftermarket's not bad and I plan to pick her up some day but it's still annoying that she wasn't available at more stores


Haha sorry for all the writing, didn't realize I had as much to say about these figures until I started.
Let me know what exclusives keep you up at night! Do you still plan to get them some day? What makes you prefer them over their regular edition, if they have one? Feel free to include any merch or other related stuff. Thanks for reading! ^.^

All of the new Kingdom Hearts Nendoroids, that are exclusive to JP/US. Like it's not enough that we pay customs in the EU now we also gotta proxy them or pay the scalpers to even get them T_T
As someone who collects KH a lot it really was a pain to pay 9k per Nendo :/ but oh well...

The TWST nendos. I do not ever want to pay upfront for anything, so trying to get Vil (ITEM #1051741) preordered was a NIGHTMARE. Thankfully my friend managed to order him for me, and I only had to pay a downpayment, which is more than fine with me. I missed Malleus' (ITEM #1051746) preorder window tho so now I'm even more pressed trying to find him klsglkshgsg

Also the re-release of the nendoroids of Wei Wuxian and Lan Wangji, particularly their DX versions (ITEM #1253519 and ITEM #1253520). No, GSC, I am not going to pay nearly $200 (before shipping!!!) for 2 nendoroids... I'm still bitter about that one. And honestly, why couldn't they put up the re-release (not DX) on normal sites? At least let us have those! But I guess it's fine, since at this point I really would much prefer a scale of WWX's Yiling Laozu form anyway.

Also this Miku: ITEM #998271 she's beautiful and I would love to have her, but I'm not really willing to spend all that effort securing a China-exclusive scale. I want her, but not that badly. Although if she wasn't exclusive, she would have been an instant PO.

I happen to have number 2 on your list! I collect a lot of pink Jojo things and unfortunately those happen to be exclusive more often than not. I'm never able to get them brand new so I just hunker down on amiami preowned or Yahoo! Auctions and prepare to shell out slightly more cash. It does get pretty annoying after a while!

the metallic asuka has actually been on amiami preowned for a while www.amiami.com/... (at least i think this is the metallic one?)
but for me some annoying exclusives would be ITEM #1220599 and ITEM #1224196 the rock singer one is on multiple sites but overall for me its easiest to order it on tom except i dislike tom and the 39 Yan Ye is hard for me to order cause im so inexperienced with using proxies and stuff lol so i just decided to skip on both of them. awesome mikus comes out frequently though so i didnt suffer for long

Friggin exclusives are always a pain. Ugh. OTL The marked up prices always kills me, too. Sometimes I get lucky a local shop sells it, sometimes I don't and then the struggle begins lmao

That's why I don't get limited+exclusive item. They're so annoying to find unless you're lucky!
When I see a character I like has that type of item, I prefer to ignore it, and poof! I did it. What does it cost? Changing favourite character hahah.

Ah those Zelda figures... I'd love to own them all too but they're so exclusive that I've given up hope lol. All so beautiful but so hard to get.

The existence of ITEM #945744 and ITEM #945746 will haunt me forever, they're so gorgeous and I'd love to own them but they were limited to Japan, Hong Kong and Taiwan upon release so I couldn't get them.

Some awesome exclusives (as in limited edition) I have ordered are ITEM #756849 and ITEM #990676 which will be my most prized figures/statues once they arrive, though it will be a while before either of them do.

ITEM #180408 Can't find her anywhere and if you can she is way more than her listed retail price.
ITEM #296941 You could only get her through some random Japanese store when she came out and then she was still expensive. Now since she was an 'exclusive' figure, if you can find her she is way over priced.
ITEM #331578 And yet we have another 'if you can find her, she's way, way over priced' figure (see a theme here?).
ITEM #523396 & ITEM #523397 These are Chinese exclusive figures. I have yet to ever find them for a decent price. Actually they are on eBay for $1,199.13 right now. NOT INCLUDING SHIPPING! Someone in Texas is selling them (trying to rip some one off). There are so many other Chinese exclusive figures out there that I want but cannot have! I almost wish I didn't even know they existed!
ITEM #1086556 I'm adding this one because it's a garage kit. I do not possess the talent required to build a garage kit figure and this is just one of so very many garage kit only figures out there that I wish would get picked up by a figure company to be made into a completed pre-painted figure. I guess it could still happen but for now I am just left with the dream of it happening.

noctisity 兵貴神速。
ITEM #141766

I've never seen this for sale since only 1k exist, but honestly at this point, if by some miracle I do find it for sale, I may have to buy it on sight unless I'm dead broke. I really like Donyatsu and this figure in particular is such a great combination of my niche interests: food shaped like animals and gas masks.

This Exclusive ( ITEM #184025 ) Haunts me as well. The Lawson. ver figures of these girls are said to only have 500 made per character, and when I find her I'm always short on cash. I LOVE the blue and black vs the yellow green and white the original has, But maybe one day I'll be able to get her. I don't even want to think about the more popular girls and their Lawson variants.. Something tells me that those are rage-inducing to find LOL
