Well in this particular case the guy choosing and "signing" these as APs is the same guy that goes over to China and posted pics inspecting them.

So it's entirely plausible he picked or knew the best of the bunch while he was there and had those designated as APs.

Just the necklace or Goro himself?

At least you won't have to deal with the PCS runaround.

The hair was busted off. I ended up smashing it to bits and getting store credit.

Is there any way of knowing how many AP’s were made? I love the fact that I have one, but I kind of feel the exclusivity is worn off without knowing. That being said I’ve never had an AP before.

My Goro is stunning and complete and bought from my LCS

I went to a general store. They wouldn't let me buy anything specifically.

No I don't think so, probably not that many but I wouldn't consider an AP special.

There was supposedly 10 or so APs made for each one made additional. But then there's extra APs, for some arts, usually the licensor wants some, etc. Then add on top full replacements made ahead of time and those are generally listed as AP. So once the replacement period is done they probably sold those as APs as well.
