It's about time they release more boy figures, I mean Mametchi come on, they could have done more. I'm glad that they decided to continue the figure line, that's a big plus. Hopefully they do a plush line too. I'm just glad to see them back with another release as quick as they did.
Thanks Sam on Tamacraze for my Avatar!

I bought the blue flowery one! It is estimated to arrive in the last week of August.

Also, Kuchipatchi and Spacytchi (along with Pipospetchi and Akaspetchi) will be released as figures, as well as some previous figure characters with new poses and face expressions. Cool to see they're making more boy figures.

LOL yes, I did mean April. :P

I want to get a second one when I can find them for cheaper; probably the pink lace one.

The EBay seller (cooltoys4less) ships to Europe. You have to message him for the cost. When you 'Buy It Now' you have to request an invoice from the seller which he'll send you, then just pay by PayPal/card and your done.

Thank you for answering. But I was kind of hoping for a store. The one on Ebay is the only one there and he asks too much.
I don't mind if I have to wait, but I want to find a store who sell them or somebody who can tell me if they will be sold in Holland (they are still selling Wave 1 here!).

Hey guys, I have bad news. These Tamagotchis will never be sold in stores.

But the good news is that Bandai is working on a color-screen Tamagotchi that MIGHT be released next year, if things go well.

Too bad, if people had been more supportive of the first Tamagotchi Friends (as in more people purchasing it), the Dream Town Tamagotchi Friends may be out in stores and the color-screen Tamagotchi release would be more likely to happen.


Quotes from the official Tamagotchi Friends US FaceBook page:

"Hi everyone! Unfortunately the retail chains weren't interested in this item. Though you all want the product, there wasn't enough interest from enough people for the retail chains to take the product. But we did get interest from collectors which allows us to get the product into the market for our key fans, you! It's the only way we can get it into the market. We wish we did have more interest and were able to get the product into national retailers but it's not what happened."

"There are plans for more Tamagotchis in the US and we agree about a color device success. That's why we're working on one right now. But it won't be this year unfortunately. Planning for next year."

"Tamagotchi is one of our core brands. So we are continuing to focus on it - mostly in Japan. But we have not given up here in the States. We are presently working on a new version we plan to release next year. As much as I would love to commit to next year, I can't. We need to make sure the product is the right one for the market and if it's not ready next year, we won't release it as we want to do it right. And even when we do have the product then we need to get retailer support. Based on the product I'm seeing, I think there will be one next year. We all want that. So I understand your frustration, please believe we have NOT given up on Tamagotchi in the US!"

So no New Tamagotchi friends this year. Does that mean they won't release the figure line with Spcaeychi and Bros and Kuchipatchi!? Theses are the questions that haunt me.

Probably not. I'd imagine that these sorts of things would be available only through Bandai reps, kind of like the Tamagotchi King Throne Cradle. Perhaps they'll show up on eBay eventually?

I'm going to take the Bandai rep's word with a grain of salt though because remember this is the same rep that told us multiple times that they were currently in T.J.Maxx and Marshalls stores. They may have every intention of releasing a color Tamagotchi in the US next year but for all we know plans could have changed or could still change between now and then. At least for now, we have what's left of these Tamagotchi Friends. cooltoysforless seems to have a plentiful supply of them from Bandai, so it looks like they'll at least be around in all of the shells for the rest of the month.

Tamagotchi Friends US FaceBook page changed her answer again. :rolleyes:

"I'm excited to let all you US and Canadian fans know that the new Spring &#8234;#&#8206;TamagotchiFriends&#8236; device WILL be sold at a national retailer - but not your usual toy retailer. I'm checking when I can share which retailer it is as it's just shipping now (so won't be on shelf for another 3-4 weeks) but I wanted to let you all know as soon as I found out! I appreciate all the conversations showing me your enthusiasm for the product. Makes what I do worth it!! Hope to have more details soon!!!"

Hopefully she's right this time; after all, she did post this in a status update instead of in the comments.

I'm really excited. The seller on ebay accepted my offer for the zigzag pattern Tamagotchi Friends! Oddly, that was the only one they were taking offers on. Luckily it was one I wanted!

I'm thinking of starting a log when it gets here - it shouldn't be long since it's coming within Canada.

Hot Topic is the national retailer that the Dream Town device can be found at in both the US & Canada! Should hit shelves in 3-4 weeks!!
