I am curious on how rare the 1997 Hong Kong New Years version really is?  And is there an approximate number on how many were made?  I have #14095.  I am guessing there was 15000-20000 made. 

 

Was it only sold in China and then people imported them over (like the English Colour Tamas)?  Did it require preorders?

I'm not really sure how it was released. I guess chinease people bought them online and then used them. Some sold them and put them up on eBay. That's how we get them now :)

I wouldn't say it's rare considering Tamagotchis such as Ocean (US) and Devil are known as the rare ones. You can buy them for a reasonable price on some sites too! In my opinion it's a slightly less common P1 :P

That's what I was thinking myself.  I came across mine for about $30 complete a few years ago and the seem to still be hovering around that price.  I guess the rarity of it is over-exaggerated.
