eBay is unfortunately the best option, why I say that is you're correct about the high prices and it seems to be the only place I can find these plushies. A new Mitzi for $175.99?! I think I'll pass! I heard Tangy even went for $250+, Vesta over $500. Just crazy! You can save searches on eBay and be the first to be notified when one of these rare plushies go up for sale possibly for a lower price. I'm still looking for a City Folk/Wild World Rosie myself!
I saw a video on eBay where someone bought a Tangy for around $50 from some Japanese auction websites, so some of those may be really good especially for extremely rare Gamecube plushies, however I'm not sure how or which countries they would be able to send them to or exactly which websites they are.
I really do wish they released more of these plushies out there, there's so many characters out there they could do a great job with creating too. I seriously would love a Purrl, Merry, and Ankha to be released as some of the plush characters! (I love the cat villagers as you can tell)
Wishing you the best of luck on finding all of the plushies you want!
Just living life to the fullest, don't forget to smile today!

Thanks! i have also seen charms of the wild world/city folk villagers (mostly a male human, and Aurora) but the shipping was ridiculous (seriously $20 just to ship to Canada!?) but to be fair its the only one i have found and a lot of the plushies seem to be available in November.
