Millennium Furby Version 1. (World Trade Center Furby)
In August 1999 this was released in USA only and only 30,000 were ever made. However, 5,000 of these were exclusive to the Windows On The World gift shop inside the north tower of the World Trade Center, because of which this Furby would then get the nickname "World Trade Center Furby".

Millennium Furby Version 2
In December 1999, the other Millennium Furby was produced. It is a reversal in color from the other one, and this one is easier to find due to having 220,000 created.
In September 1999, the Racing Furby was created and was released and exclusive to Kmart (Sears in Canada) Stores. Only 72,000 were ever made, and this one is rare to find, even rarer to find one in tested and otherwise said working condition.

In October 1999 a new Furby was created, and kind of late. Tropical Furby was released to celebrate summer, but it was delayed after its original set July 1999 release date. It was still released, but in fall. Only 36,000 were ever made, making this hard to find. It was available only in select Toys R Us stores.
In November 1999, the Santa Furby was released. It wore a Santa hat that said "Furby" and its paws were black, like boots. It was intended to be released December 1999, but was released in many stores early as an accident. 500,000 were made, making this the easiest to find of any special edition.
In November 1999, The Jester Furby was released. It was available only in Target Stores in USA (Zellers in Canada), and only 72,000 were produced. It was manufactured by the Furby factory JT. Famous for their poor training and poor worker ability, JT manufactured Furby colors such as Jester, Lamb and some Kid Cuisine furbys. Most of the Furbys manufactured by JT came with faults, parts missing, or they were just plain broken, straight out of the box. However, some JT Furbys are just fine. JT Furbys are known to be thinner than regular Furbys.
Originally intended to be released alongside the Santa Furby, it was released on its original release date, unlike the Santa Furby, which was released 1 month early due to shipping mistakes. 250,000 were made, so it's common to find and was exclusive to KB Toys (Toys R Us in Canada).
Valentine's Day Furby

Kid Cuisine Furby
Exclusive to winners of a Kid Cuisine contest and released in 1999. It is one of the hardest to find, only having 500 made.
The rarest of all Furbys and one of the hardest-to-find toys in the world. Only 5 were ever produced and had an insane $100,000 price tag! Only two were ever sold. It is very doubtful they were even real special edition Furbys, as the name was not Tiger/Hasbro official, and they are really only Series 1 Snowball Furbys with diamonds. They were available at FAO Shwarz.
Another hard to find one due to being unreleased. Only 10 are known to be in existence.
Another rare find, but still has variety. A number of 100,000 were produced, as evidenced by a fan's own Rockstar Furby, which is number 99,817 out of 100,000. It is unknown why Hasbro produced so many but cancelled them. It is also unknown where all the unsold ones ended up. They were possibly destroyed or stripped for parts. They also might have been auctioned off or given to people who worked for Hasbro.
