Both events offered the possibility to buy some exclusive "Breakthrough" goods. 21 exclusive objects were available, along with the group's light stick.[2]

The goods were also available for sale online at the Once Japan official shop, from August 28 to September 8. An additional item was added for the occasion.[3]
