Top Industry / Top SangYo Plushies
There are two sets of plushies from the Top Industry (TI) line. Set 1 plushies were the first characters released and all have a large version. They also have a re-released small plush with embroidery instead of paint (for toes, scars, and some markings). Set 2 plushies were the second set of characters, all with embroidered small versions, and as far we've seen not all have a large version. Only small embroidered Gin, Riki, and Weed have a curly tail. The cost of these plushies ranges from $100 - $1000+ in auction depending on version and character.
Top SangYo (TS) also created a large and small Weed for promoting the anime. These have embroidered toes, normal tails, and a DVD tag that is attached to the back leg instead of on a string. These plushies were sold cheaper and were easier to obtain when released, so they are valued less than the Top Industry Chibis. You can find more details on the different Weed plushies here.
The Finnish plushies are large, fluffy plushies with short legs. They aren't raffle or limited edition plushies like the Japanese ones, and so are much more easily obtained. More characters will possibly be coming if the interest is high enough. The plushies cost around $40 each from PurePlastic.
At the moment, the only special plush is the "Promo" Weed plush. There is very limited info on how many of these plushies were given away, but it is a very very small number. In past auctions this plush has sold for $1500.
