I just got my Tama-Go from Amazon as well as a Kuchipachi figure. BEST Tamagotchi you can get! It uses AAA batteries which we always have and it's not too heavy. The games, the friendship, just everything is so amazing.

My town's Walmart always has TONS of Music Stars, but no tama-gos.

Actually, there are some members that have managed to get one for themselves, either during the short window of time when Amazon had it in stock and were taking orders for them, or the people who have ordered them from BEGUM9 on Amazon or eBay. There are also a few TamaTalkers who have reported purchasing them at stores in their area. Some stores have them already, others don't. The stores in my area will be receiving them from their distribution center on Wednesday. So, you're not the only one who managed to nab one already, and most of us don't have much longer to wait. ;)

I second that. I completely second that. I'm definitely going to visit my Toys 'R' Us and Wal-Mart this week!

Serrafina_Pekkala, I'm really trying to bite my tongue here so I don't say something rude. Look, I know about buying it online. In fact, I have one from online. I know I'm not the only one. They are still available at Amazon and ToysRUs. They are available from Bandai on Amazon as well. I just heard that an all-around release date for the US was around Fall. That's what Toys R Us told me, that's what Target told me, etc.

That's true, they will be everywhere in the U.S. in the Fall, but they'll be in all stores in August, as well.

On the Tama-Go blog, "Mametchi" states, "...And donít forget! Beginning in August, the TamaTown Tama-Go and Gotchi Character Figures will be available at Toys R Us and Walmart!"

I really don't like starting or being a part of arguments, even though this is hardly one. The important part is that we'll all have them soon, right?! :(

Yeah, that's what's important. All I said was that it comes out in Fall. That way, everyone knows it will be available in stores to them in Fall. I really hope this doesn't turn into an argument, I don't know what Serrafina_Pekkala has against me.
Serrafina_Pekkala, if I sounded braggy or rude at any time, I'm very sorry. Please be aware of your posts, though, because they may be more offensive than you think.

Amen to that, Brunotchi! My favourite character... in case you couldn't tell. :D

Also, as an aside, everybody, I sent the following message to BEGUM9 (the seller selling them in their Amazon Storefront) while their prices were still $46.98 for Memetchi and Mametchi, and $69.99 for Kuchipachi

"You may want to reconsider raising your prices so high. I'm a member of a Tamagotchi discussion board, and everyone is saying that they would have considered paying the $26.99 but now that you've raised them so high, everyone is outraged that the prices are so inflated. You now have your Tama-Go units priced the same or higher than Tamagotchi +Color or Tamagotchi ID, which are items that everyone on the forum covets but can't afford as they are Japanese only releases and they can only be purchased on eBay. If they have to choose between your Tama-Go with the black and white screen or the Tamagotchi +Color or Tamagotchi iD I'm willing to bet they'll choose the Color or iD. [url="http://shop.ebay.com/?_from=R40&_trksid=p3907.m570.l1313&_nkw=tamagotchi+color&_sacat=See-All-Categories""]http://shop.ebay.com/?_from=R40&_trksid=p3...ategories"[/url]

And logged in the next morning to see their new (and current!) prices, which are $34.95 each with $4.95 shipping. Hopefully I made enough of a difference that some of us can now afford one before they're available in our area. Just try to think logically about it though, if you don't have a lot of money. I'm preventing myself from ordering one of these because I'm not rich and I know that within a week or two I will for 100% certain be able to purchase one of them at a store near me, and that I have plenty of Tamagotchi to play with until then, so I don't feel the need to spend the extra $15 on the toy itself. In a week or two when I'm standing in front of that store display, that same amount will mean one Tama-Go (almost TWO for another $5) and TWO character figurines! So I'm doing my absolute best to remain patient. ;)

omg thanks but i really think that thye should count her as a charecter to

You will receive e-mail notification when an estimated ship date for this item has been updated." are now completely canceled. I received this e-mail from Amazon yesterday:

I got a similar email from target saying this "Thank you for shopping at Target.Com.

Any of our sources.

Serrafina_Pekkala, I'm really trying to bite my tongue here so I don't say something rude. Look, I know about buying it online. In fact, I have one from online. I know I'm not the only one. They are still available at Amazon and ToysRUs. They are available from Bandai on Amazon as well. I just heard that an all-around release date for the US was around Fall. That's what Toys R Us told me, that's what Target told me, etc.

Just to clear things up, they are not available from Bandai on Amazon, and Amazon is not selling them. It's a private seller that has a storefront on Amazon. I wanted to correct this because people shouldn't be going to order them on Amazon and not paying attention to the part where it says "Ships from and sold by BEGUM9" since he doesn't follow the same shipping, pricing, or return policy that Amazon does. And if you read through the topic, Amazon was offering them directly from Amazon for a short period of time but then I (and I am assuming anyone else that had an order in) got an e-mail from them, stating:

Hello from Amazon.com.

We're unable to fulfill your order for the items listed below because they aren't available from the supplier any longer. As a result, we cancelled them from your order and your credit card wasn't charged.

Tamagotchi Handheld game - Blue with Memetchi

Tamame reported a similar problem with Target, and Amazon was distributing them in association with Target.com/IPC. So, please note: Any purchases made from Amazon at this time are *not* from the Amazon corporation. They are from someone selling them privately from their gift store based in Los Angeles, California. He will not give you a refund if for whatever reason you open your Tama-Go and start it up to find that something is wrong with it, like Amazon would.

REALLY?! Then why did I get that e-mail from them on Saturday, July 24th?! If they had them in stock shouldn't they have fulfilled my order instead of canceling it? :( :( ;) :o

How should I know? I don't work there. I saw them in stock on Saturday. It was in my cart on Wednesday and then taken off. Then, it restocked on Friday and I bought it. And just saying, anyone can forge an Amazon email. Look-

Do you have a screen shot of it so that I can use it when I ask them why they didn't fulfill it when I tell them that my order should have been completed?

P.S. I didn't forge the e-mail: http://s982.photobuc...rent=e-mail.jpg
