Welcome to Librarium Online!
I just recently decided to buy Prince Yriel. Two weeks ago I went on GW's site to price check. There he was at $17 USD. However last week I again check (and planned on buying) and 'poof' he's gone, no longer listed!
I called GW and they indeed no longer have him listed or in stock. The person I spoke to was as surprised by this as I was.
So...Anyone here have any ideas why he was discontinued? It seems that many Eldar players use him (and he is quite awesome!). So low sales would seem unlikely. He appears to be a nice sculpt and I see no real need to re-do him.
Luckily for me my local store still has one in stock, so I'm covered.
Thats very strange indeed. He is still listed on the uk site so I have no idea what is happening. Possible clerical error of some sort?
I don't see him on UK, US, or Australia site. I called US GW and they no longer have him in their 'system' or otherwise available for sale.

He is listed on this page here. I have a Yriel model thankfully but if they are stopping him I feel sorry for anyone else who starts collecting Eldar as they would be missing out on an awesome character.
I also feel bad for players who don't have him. I've seen him on eBay for over $22 this past week.
Im totally confused why they would pull him from the site.
sadly, i dont have him i wish i did though but for some reason games workshop is taking quite a few blisters off not sure if any1 noticed muegan ra is gone and so is the captain alrahem for IG
Huh either games workshop dosnt like the other races having special charecters that can match the space marines or they are gearing up for new models.
you cannot shoot my harliquins because beneath their mask is an idea and ideas are bulletproof
indeed. the most likely reason is that eldar are in the works and they've run out of the current run of yriels. no point printing more of the old if the new is close. If this starts happening with other eldar models, we can get our hopes up a little.
What confounds me is that imho Yriel is a good looking mini and doesn't need to be redone.
I just don't know!
Single warlocks, farseers with swords, and Maugen Ra are MIA also.
