When put on limited sale, no new copies of this accessory will be produced, and the people who bought the accessory during its sale will be able to sell the accessory at a price chosen to their desire, given that the user has a form of Builders Club.
Limited unique accessories
Limited unique accessories are accessories that have a certain amount of copies, and when first published, are sold by the admins. All copies of a limited unique accessory have a special number to it, and when a user buys the accessory, they gets that specific copy of the accessory. For example, if an accessory is limited unique, and has only 100 copies, and you by the 50th, your accessory will be designated by a #50/100. Once the accessory is sold out, all owners of the accessory with Builders Club can sell the accessory at a price they desire.
Because these accessories have a designated number, many users try to collect limited unique hats with that specific number.

- Development on accessories began in 2007, and continue to this day.
- In 2007, ROBLOX tried to use/test hair but failed.
- Since accessories make ROBLOXians heavier, the rocket boots fly slower and players jump lower.
- Accessories can assist you in sword fighting, as they make you heavy and lunge.
- Administrators are currently the only users who can make accessories typically using the user ROBLOX. However, by 2017, ROBLOX will allow non-admins to make accessories. A common admin to make accessories and other kinds of items in the catalog is Tarabyte, who occasionally posts on the Forum.
- Most accessories only fit the default head, however some accessories fit other heads, like the Blockhead Baseball Cap.
- If players had only 1 accessory in theirs avatar then attempting to pick up another hat in-game, they cannot wear it unless they drop the hat that they are wearing, the using the = key. (this does not work anymore)
- Wearing more than 4 accessories is caused by spamming hat givers like they got a fedora, then a different fedora, a glass, then headphones.
- ROBLOX usually makes accessories on random days, or on a holiday, which is notified as "New" on the top right corner of the accessory's picture. The tag is removed after about three days. Some items classified as "New" by the tag are free.
- If a player drops all of their accessories, they may only pick one back up. This is most likely because of the code not being changed from being allowed to wear one accessory to three.
