Limited edition and production exclusives are extremely depressing events!!!
But I know I’ll regret it if I don’t at least try to get my hands on him (T-T) He is the only anime character I had a major crush on (for some reason I can’t explain) ever since I watched the first Darker than Black season. It was like a love-at-first-sight (一目惚れ) kind of thing. Probably the first time in my many years of anime watching lol~ It’s really strange ^^;;

With middle man fees and so on, you can expect to pay at least 24,000 Yen for him. It is –REALLY– depressing. The last time there was an exclusive Gundam 00 RAH figure of Setsuna F. Seirei which cost about the same but I’m ok with not having him since I wasn’t a big fan of him.
But this time, it’s Hei. I hope I can get him. His announcement totally killed all my budgeting plans. There’s no guarantee of securing a piece, so I can only keep my fingers crossed :(
Hei is voiced by Kiuchi Hidenobu 木内 秀信.
