One user even stated that she woke up at 5:30am just to queue up for a holder and she does not even wake up so early for work.

There were already about 50 people in the queue at around 6:18am.

Resold for more than five times the price

It is also apparent that these limited edition holders experienced high demand, as some in the queues are scalpers.

As you can see from the number of holders listed on Carousell at much higher prices:

The Hello Kitty holders are sold for as high as S$50, which is more than six times the price of the original:
