Here, from this website:http://toyarchive.com/Furby/FurbyForSale.html

From what I assume, she only really replies to offers if they are good and fair. And I am terrible at giving good and fair offers, as I was raised to try and get everything as cheap as I can.

So, can one of you guys tell me how much in whatever currency (I can convert it) would be fair for one of these prototype furbies?

This website is old and outdated, it seems to have never changed since the mid-2000s..

I don't think she will be replying to anything

Yeah, that website has been inactive for years. Looking back at the old threads on this forum, apparently the person selling them was a jerk.

You might be in luck one day if you frequent eBay. I have seen prototypes on there, very very rarely.

In fact I think whoever owned the old prototype website sold all their remaining Furbies on eBay as I remember seeing very similar pictures in listings around 2009 or so.

However I have seen unreleased Furbies on eBay from different sellers, including a Lion Furby.

I check ebay on the UK, AUS and US sites twice a day, sometimes more, and zenmarket twice a day too. So maybe I will find something rare!

Awww, 20 years? That is a shame.

You never know, others might show up on eBay or elsewhere before then.

I'm hoping an early prototype shows up one day, although I would love an unreleased fur colour prototype too.

I emailed her asking if she is still selling them a year ago, but she never replied.
Keep in mind that this site has been untouched since almost a decade ago. The last update was in 2010. She probably doesn't have them anymore.

It would be a dream come true to have a prototype Furby, but I suppose we must wait until she is selling them again.
Collecting Furbys till I have 'em all, and even after that I don't care if I get doubles.

Yeah, I messaged her as well. No reply, which sucks. I was aiming for the Parrot-style prototype Furby. He's super cute! :D

Oh no, that kitten Furby Baby is one of my dream furbies... I'm sad it's just a prototype, but it'd be cool to own one! I wish someone still sold those...

I am in love with the shaggy Furby prototypehttp://toyarchive.com/Furby/6thBabyShaggy1a.jpg probably because I'm obsessed with Pinatas. Such a shame that it has the battery compartment glued shut, and it is extremely rare.

By now, all those prototype Furbys must've been given away, I mean.. I don't know if that lady actually likes Furbys that much anyway, she likes more popular Hasbro items like Transformers. Also, that site hasn't been updated in a decade. I honestly think she should remove that page, it's quite misleading because she never replies to emails, making it impossible to get one of these prototypes unless you're a friend of Caleb Chung or something.

Like I said, she probably doesn't have 'em anymore, but if you really want to still wing it, I'd say they're probably worth over 100 dollars at least, I mean, we're talking about 90s prototypes here!

Still, it's not impossible to get a Furby prototype, I saw quite a few Furby collectors with prototypes on their websites, and on YouTube. I've even seen someone with a lion Furby on YouTube, and it worked! There's also a girl called Cute Furby (Lots of people have this username, so it may be hard to find) who has a working prototype Baby Brainy, which looks like a bee. She uploaded 2 videos of it working, and they got reuploaded and reuploaded over and over by other Furby YouTubers. These people probably bought it online for hundreds or thousands, it certainly won't be cheap..
