I got my figures for $2.50 each, and my pink Tama-Go for $10 xD They were on special.

what store did you buy the figurine and tamago?

I bought the Tama-Go at Toy World and the figures at the Warehouse.

I own all three of the wave 2 TMGOS, and I really enjoy them. The features are really fun, and buying d
Seperate gotcha figures isn't that bad because the games are super fun and the shops are good too. I wouldn't wait for color tamagotchies because they are too expensive in my opinion.

I think the TMGO is one of my favorite versions and the size doesn't bother me (though that might be different for some people)
All and all I recommend the TMGO!!!!

When I got my Tama-Go for Christmas, I didn't like it because I wasn't really a GF collecter because they were none there. I bet I'm going to like it when my figures come. So, if you're a person who likes collecting stuff, I think you should go for it :)

I have my tamago since yesterday, my first impression went a little like this: MY GOD THAT IS ONE BIG TAMA.
The sound quality is bad, but that's just my opinion, i love the quality in my V6 it's so clear and fun.
I only have 1 figure, the one that came with it and that was the Memetchi.
It's only a toddler and like they said it's really not needy. That has annoyed me a few times, I was like, c'mon i wanna play!!! XD

I've ordered all the characters, but they still have to come in the mail. I think that when you have a few characters to click on your tamago, it makes it a lot more fun.
So far my favorite tama is still the V6. I love it.
Maybe my tamago will become more fun when i have more characters and when it grows up a little, i don't know.
If you want one, i would buy it, it's not even that expensive anymore when you check ebay. They are becoming cheaper and cheaper.

And I also think that they would become even more fun when tamatown is working again....IF IT WILL EVER WORK AGAIN....:(

Hi it's me again.
I wanted to let you know that all my characters have arrived, I have all 12 of them.
I'm going to be completely honest with you, if you play without any of the figurines, the tama-go can be quite boring!
Like in really boring.
If you play with them, it's so cool, i think it's one of the most coolest tamas ever :).

Hi Amarisje, did you order your figurines online?

I ordered them via ebay. I checked ebay yesterday evening to look for some cool tamas and I saw that you can buy them even cheaper now.
It's a set of 12, hope i helped you out :).
I got mine in just 2 weeks (from Canada to Belgium).

I am getting really bored with only 2 figurines that I have. I wanna get more figurines, but they no longer have them in stores. And I am really nervous about shopping online. I don't know how it was a success for you. I've heard stories that people get ripped off while shopping online. Do you know the reason why they don't sell any figurines anymore in stores, instead they sell online? Please I really want to know the answer.

Well I'm from Belgium, let's start with that and I'm 23 years old.
Bandai has stopped selling tamas around here for years and years now.
But they still sold some in the UK, but after a few years that stopped as well. They weren't very popular anymore.
The last one they brought out in the USA was the Tama-go, but that hasn't lived up to their expectations. So that's one of the reasons why you can't buy tamas there either.
I heard that you can sometimes find them in old toy stores and such if you search very, very good.
Girl, if you want some, i would recommend to buy them online via ebay and use paypal to pay for it.
If you don't get the item, paypal can always return you your money. Even ebay helps you to get your money back in some way.
Also check the feedback that the sellers are getting, if it's bad, don't buy with them.

Sorry if I'm going off topic with this. If you want any more information about this, maybe you should start a new topic and ask all your questions there :).

They are worth it. Amazon has them for a very cheap price. and the figures are like, 5 dollars, some are more and some are less. but that's definitely subject to change, because sometimes amazon runs out of them and you have to buy them from sellers, who can have outrageous prices for things like this. but it is definitely worth it! :D ^_^

I'm enjoying my Tama-go very much! It was only $6.00 on amazon, and I've seen the figures for as low as $0.99! They're DEFINITELY worth it at that price. I'd say if you were on the fence, now's the time to grab a couple, even if you want to keep them in the box for collection purposes. Who knows, some of them might be worth selling in a few years like the older ones are, now. (And since the batteries aren't inside, they're not likely to be ruined by sitting around for a decade.)

For those who want a cheap Tama-Go online, there is a website, Toynk.com, that has Tama-Go's for $5.99 plus $5.99 for US shipping ($10-ish to Canada, not sure about other locations). It's better than eBay prices and a good idea if Amazon is sold out.

I like the one with the Sebiretchi gotchi figure but it's not available where I live, I think. And my parents don't like buying stuff online. :( But I think it's worth it because it isn't that expensive unlike some other toys.

Wow! I kind of wish I knew about this when I bought my Tama-Go on Friday. I bought mine from StarWorldToy's Ebay http://www.ebay.com/...=item20c9ce3b93 for $12.99USD + $7.90USD to ship to Canada. I can imagine shipping is cheaper if you live in the US. Although the total came out to be $20.89USD I also am getting a second figure with a faceplate for FREE! On that website they do not even sell additional figures. I emailed StarWorldToy's also to get a more personal quote with where I live to see a better shipping estimation and they emailed me back momentarily after I sent my email. It was personal, and definitely a real person I was dealing with and they were really sweet to me!
