Hi everybody. I'm new to this forum. I have two Ancestor Tamas, both P1s.

 

This little fellow followed me back home from a flea market in Germany.

Funny, eh? It doesn't seem to be a european colorway. Text is in english, so maybe it's from an asian country like Hong Kong or Singapore? Are those supposed to eat bread or rice? On the back it says "Bandai 1997 - Made in China". I'm trying to raise the secret character currently, so that may tell..

 

Unfortunately it's mute. I managed to solder a speaker wire back to the circuit board, but unfortunately the wire attached to the center of the piezo was off, too and it turned out to be as good as impossible to solder to this thing (I should have looked up how to solder to piezos beforehand, but it's still quite a pain). Either I lack the skill to do this job properly or the piezo was faulty from the beginning. The wire had not broken off, the complete solder joint wasn't sticking to it...

 

My other P1 is an orange and yellow one with the numbers, from the second series of european P1s.

I've had it since 1997 and it was my second Tamagotchi. It replaced one of identical color that was stolen from me. I always babied it and it's still in great condition! - It's better than new, actually. After opening it up to clean up some oxidation on the circuit board that prevented the knobs from working I spent some time adjusting the screws that hold it together, trying to tune its speaker. Sound much cleaner now than it did 16 years ago.

I completed my vintage collection when I bought my Yasashii a few years ago. Some are the gems of my entire collection (clear blue Mothra, Yasashii, special Asia designs of P1s and P2s, and Devils.) I love the Tamagotchi ancestors, especially the Osutchi and Mesutchi :)

I have a P2 and used to have a Japanese Angelgotch, I plan to expand my vintages collection though, to be honest I think that my collection might focus mostly on Ancestors ;).
