they said this:
While Bandai as a whole manufactures Tamagotchi toys worldwide, there are product differences between Japan, the U.S. and other countries. The product lineups are therefore tailored to each market and its audience.
Bandai America is still currently shipping the Music Star in the styles and colors as shown on www.bandai.com or www.tamagotchi.com. We will continue to sell these for 2009 and into 2010 and may add more products to the Tamagotchi line by late next year. There is also the "bundle pack" that includes a current Tamagotchi Music Star toy and a 90 minute "Tamagotchi the Movie" DVD
So for those of you that are Tamagotchi fans, look forward to a new tamagotchi in late spring 2010!
