* ''Franchise/{{Transformers}}'':
** The holy grail for many a Western fan is the original G1 Megatron. Because he transforms into a realistic Walther P38 replica, Western toy gun laws have ensured the figure will never see an official rerelease. While he is more commonly reissued in Japan, imports tend to glue an orange plug into the barrel (if the country doesn't outright deem it illegal).
** Some G1 toys are especially difficult to find intact on eBay, such as Prowl, Mirage, Sunstreaker and Swoop, owing to the weight of the die-cast parts on the plastic they're attached to. Even worse, reissues of these particular toys are unlikely as the molds are either lost or destroyed.
** And then you have those toys unfortunate enough to have [[http://tfwiki.net/wiki/Gold_Plastic_Syndrome Gold Plastic Syndrome]]. Almost no reissues (let alone ones that fix the issue) have been made for any of them, and as such even the ones already out are one day going to collapse into fragments of shattered plastic.

** If you want to see a Wrestling/RingOfHonor that took place before 2010, well, be patient. Tapes do exist but between losing a distributor and switching DVD companies, you're not going to get them from ROH itself. If you're unlucky enough not to find a seller of any particular show you may be lucky enough to able to piece together enough of it through compilation [=DVDs=] dedicated to specific wrestlers, which ROH didn't stop selling with older footage, and their web videos such as "Throw Back Thursday", which is free so long as you have access to the world wide web. Their ringside members subscription service and year of [=DVDs=] are starting to make the process either, but are still don't have everything.
** Wrestling/{{SHIMMER}} found continued bulk orders of [=DVDs=] cost prohibitive compared to focusing on the release of new ones, leading to shows gradually reaching this status, unless a retail version hit shelves. The [=ClickWrestle=] website alleviated this once they gained access to SHIMMER's video library.

Keep Circulating The Tapes (a phrase attributed to ''Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000'') is an option of last resort. It's when a show you like is denied to you, except through methods of questionable legality shady file-sharing sites, tape trading/buying... it's either that, or the show's likely to be LostForever outside of fan recordings and film company archives. It's also the rule rather than the exception for video games and other non-simple media, to the point where the {{Abandonware}} concept and UsefulNotes/{{emulation}} were created to bring common sense into the situation (the UsefulNotes/VirtualConsole, UsefulNotes/PlaystationNetwork, [=GameTap=], UsefulNotes/{{Steam}}, [[Website/GOGDotCom GOG.com]], and to a smaller extent UsefulNotes/XboxLiveArcade are finally starting to remedy this situation with games, but it's still a long way to go).
