So this is an expo only figure? What a shame!

YUp. They should have made this a regular release.

I agree .... I would have probably had at least two of these myself if they were on general sale. There is a real shortage of British Police and modern Military releases - to see a good one like this go 'exclusive' is heartbreaking.

I never understand why they go to such effort creating these masterpieces, only to limit the profit potential by making them exclusive.

It is a clever marketing strategy to drive up the demand. If it was a regular release, maybe less people would be interested in buying it as it would be perceived as 'less desirable,' or the resale is not as high or something. By making it exclusive, and you can only buy it under certain conditions, it drives up the interest.
