Bandai is being very lazy. They should bring back the classic tamagotchis, where you actually take care of your tamagotchi (1 and only 1 or maybe even 2; the baby) and not add up on all these unnecessary stuff. Make a re-make of them in color. Like Pokemon brought gold and silver back and made them in color with good graphics and etc and in color. Someone needs to take over Bandai and pitch the best ideas. they need to redo REDO all of the buisness planning for tamagotchi, and make it fun and cool again, they need to make that boom happen again and make it last. Because if they don't then TAMANA (Tamagotchi North America) is over.I can tell you now people who loved tamagotchi might return if their is enough PR and better simpler features. It HAS to have a full package meaning anything that is needed including toys, figures & all that nonsense needs to be included. Seriously Bandai dont get greedy, this isn't pokemon we aren't searching the world to get all these stuff. They are thinking like these figures are Pokemon cards. Well Pokemon cards are cheaper and these figures aren't. I'm getting a V4.5 soon and I hope i can revive my love for tamagotchi. The Japanese are smart they are going to make tamagotchi last for how ever long they want, but the americans...-sigh- they really need to make better strategies. They need to promote better, market better, and instead of making what they feel. How about making a tamagotchi what we feel and like SINCE WE ARE THE ONES BUYING, well unless they are buying their own products themselves. They should do marketing research, surveys and information, calls anything to know what we want and how to pitch an idea and apply it to their customers. Again advertising is the only way people will know if tamagotchi is alive, and the only reason i know about tamagos is because I went to their website. & now all i see is these stupid bags and crap taht come with the toy. They are loosing the concept of Tamagotchi, we take care of our little pets and play and buy and clean and etc, not music and other crap i dont even though about. If they dont fix stuff now they will stop making them give about 3 more months. TAMNA is over and TAMAGOTCHI WILL FINALLY STAY WITH THE JAPANESE AND ONLY BE WITH THE JAPANESE. & US north Americans and others will have to search amazon, ebay for the rest of our life to get it, though marketing cuts into 50% since not everyone CAN buy stuff online due to lack of credit card...THATS ALL I HAVE TO SAY.
