@- M@tt,

You probably did a PRE-ORDER from Target.com. When they say so many days it doesn't directly mean that you will have it in that many days. It means that once they receive shipment of the Tama-Go in stores, they will send it and you will have recieved it in that many days. But keep in mind, even if you paid more for faster shipping, its only for shipping. Not the total wait time for your item.

:angry: But it'll be out soon, so your wait will soon be over. Try not to be bummed about not getting it so soon.

Thanks Serrafina_Pekkala, that will be great for the users who don't convert money well.

I tried telling him that many, many times... He ordered it on Target.com on the same day that a lot of us did, when it said "Item will ship in 2 to 4 weeks" and was telling everyone that "I payed more so their sending mine faster" or something along those lines, saying it would be to him in 3-5 days. I tried to explain that 3-5 days was the shipping method he selected, and it would take the 3-5 days just to ship it to him AFTER it arrives in the warehouse and AFTER they send it to him from the warehouse once they finally get it in, but it seems he's still insisting that it's only going to take the 3-5 days to get to him... I was trying to explain it so that his little heart wouldn't be broken. I know that if I was younger and didn't understand what was going on, and truly truly thought that it was going to be to me in 3-5 days, I would keep checking the mailbox every day and keep being really, really bummed every single day it would not be there. Seeing as Target said it would be 2-4 weeks I didn't want that to go on for a month... but, seems the pour soul is determined not to listen...

Well some of your post tend to sound different then you are probably intending to... But I guess it is M@tt's choice to listen or not. It will be his sadness to know we are correct about this. (Even if it'd be REALLY nice to have it that fast)

The only people who seem to have gotten them are the people whom ordered from Amazon on first release or supplemented with one from Bandai directly.

I'd just like to clear something up real quick.

The Tama-Go merchandise that's being sold on Amazon.com right now are NOT directly from Amazon NOR Target. They are being sold by the seller BEGUM9 (which is like a seller on e-bay).

It seems like the more people that buy them before the Tama-Go is officially released, the higher this seller keeps raising the prices. Today I went on and saw that the Figures for about $14 :o. Now they are all back at $8.99

The regular price for the Tama-Go is $19.99, the Gotchi Figure is $6.99 and the Carry Case is $14.99

In my opinion, the prices that the Tama-Go and Carry Case are listed for is RIDICULOUS! :blink: The buyer knows that many people are very anxious to get these new Tamagotchis and would really pay to get them. But these prices are over doing it! It's the height of ridiculousness. :angry:

I ordered 2 figures because I thought, hey that's reasonable :unsure: ; I don't mind paying the $2 extra <_< . But the other items are like double / triple the regular price. It's outrageous.

Thank you, Shawdy! I was alarmed at the amount of people that seemed to be worrying that those would be the real prices, and I tried to point it out in one of my responses that the prices they were looking at were in a private seller's storefront on Amazon and in no way reflect the actual retail price of the item or the price that Amazon was/will be selling them for, but you summed it up much more nicely than I did! :o

Eek! $78? You are in the UK as you say... Did you pay for speedy shipment or what? But atleast you know you'll get one.

LOL, The Tama-Go itself was $18 or something, the reason it was raised that high was because I live in Europe, it was to pay for delivery out of the USA, if I didn't live outside of the US it would be cheeper.

Okay guys.... We already had a huge issue about giving codes out already. I'm going to nip this in the butt to be frank.

DO NOT, I REPEAT DO NOT GIVE OUT CODES. (the TamaTown Tama-Go codes)

Why? Its unfair to Bandai. They haven't even been released in stores yet. It ruins the game for many users. Eventually people will be able to release them, but WAIT for a while boefore you release them. Please.

MANY PEOPLE will argee. Thank you.

Trying not to be rude or anything, but I don't want this topic to be closed down/ removed due to arguing, people starting to post codes or anything of the sort.

*Proof that it was an issue before.

Congrats!

Cool. That means they will be in more stores soon.

I wonder if my ToysRus has them yet.... Doubt it.

Congratulations! I searched literally all of the Meijer, Target, Wal-Mart and Toys 'R Us stores in Grand Rapids, Michigan today and no luck. I'm really afraid that by the time they get here they'll sell out quickly and I won't be able to go out and nab one in time...

In other news, someone is selling a Kuchipatchi Tama-Go with Memetchi Figurine on eBay.

*Slightly Off-Topic*

I visited my Target today and checked to see if they had any Tama-Go's, since they've always sold Tama merchandise there... Not a single Tamagotchi logo in sight! They're nowhere to be found in my Target any more! And the last one I got there was a Music Star! So then I went to Toys R Us... Same thing! It's sad, because that was where I got my first ever Tamagotchi... an Orange with Bursts V1... I asked an employee if they had Tamagotchi's and he said "I haven't seen them in a long time" in a way that seemed as if he was saying "Those are still around?" :angry:

Needless to say, I'm discouraged :angry: I don't want to succumb to buying it off of Amazon or something. THAT won't happen until Bandai gets in more shipments, instead of someone selling them for way more than anyone should have to pay.

Sorry to get off-topic. That's me!

I don't think you're off topic at all! This is the Tama Go general discussion page, after all! I need to check my local TRU again. Last week, they told me it was finally in their system, I'll call tomorrow and see if they're in stock yet. I'd love to get some figures!
