A Limited Quantity Item (LQI) is a Premium Item available in limited quantities 'for that extra air of mystique' . They are stocked in the La Victoire and the amount released are visibly counted and sold in real time. They were first introduced during the Black Friday Sale of 2013 -- and according to the announcements these items are guaranteed no direct rereleases for six months after destock. However, there are exceptions with recolors and derivatives of destocked items. The recolors and derivatives are treated just like an original limited item and will follow the six months policy.
