Hello :ichigotchi:
I'm from Australia and after reading Binary's Tama-Go log, I emailed Funtastic, the Australian suppliers of the tama-go:

I wrote:

Hello,
I am enquiring about the approximate release date for the "Tamatown by Tamagotchi" (aka "Tama-go" http://www.bandai.co...l-petshardware) for stores in Australia?
I have been informed that Funtastic is to be the stockist of the toy and that I should contact you with any questions about a release date.
Thanks,
Arielle.


They replied:

Arielle

This will be available in December

Well mine is the updated release date for Australia I guess.
There must be a lot of delays getting it ready for the Australian Market, usually Australia has different design waves and even different features.
I emailed Funtastic again under a different email to see how much the date varies and I was told it would be early to late December by another sales staff.

Hope this helps!

And it's nice to meet you to Furbitchi, I am from Melbourne as well :)

I noticed when I bought my music star last week that the packaging is different in australia to america and such. The packaging will need to be designed and sent to bandai for approval then manafactured and, again, sent for approval.
Also the colours and designs should be different, can't wait to see :D

maybe but seeing as nz have the same packaging (except for the g for general) we should be getting it the same way and I think because of different countries to tell them apart they made different packaging for each country now that Europe wonít be having the tama-go they will just put them in the same packaging but maybe Iím wrong

furbitchi: sylvia park is in auckland.

I got my tamago yesterday from Toyworld New Zealand from one of their South Island stores. They are currently $32 but regular price will be $37. I don't know the prices of the figurines. I believe I also saw them in their new catalogue.

Now, if only the website for them would work....

Tamagos are in the Warehouse! They are $37 NZD, and they are available online! Since Christmas is coming up, it might be a good time to get a bargain on them!! Which one do you want? I am thinking about the Kuchipatchi or the Mametchi, because I've never been a big fan of Memetchi. :furawatchi:

Love and Gotchi, Kuchi

I called and checked with Australia Big W and they said there getting a huge shipment of tamagotchi's (of course the tamatown tama-go) in about 2 weeks, late October, to the first week of November. Also, there a branch off Woolworths, there not being released into Woolworths supermarket, only Woolworths Big W. (if any of this makes sense)
