I'm not sure about the Music Star, but I did see a commercial once about it. To me, it seems like they did a lot of work on the promotion of the Tama-Go. Check out Bandai's Blog. They toured parts of the US, teamed up with Tamatalk to put up a contest, put up their own contest and other stuff. I suppose that wasn't enough either.

Sync Beatz is a company that produces lifestyle products, so I guess we already know what to expect from them. <_<

Competition. In the end, it will help the tamagotchi brand as a whole or dig it down deeper.

My gut says something in the fall. A possible tama... For the anniversary and such. I wouldn't know anymore then you guys... But with new things comming out towards Christmas.... The possiblity of a new tama can come. (or for C-mas)

A very low chance, I guess? Maybe Bandai is doing this as a test. A test if its good enough to spend money to make another Tamagotchi Toy.

The odd thing is... I would expect to start seeing items anytime. I would have thought they would be out by now though. These shirts need a tamagotchi pocket.... Lol.

Maybe these will be the fall release.... But I am still crossing my fingers for a tama. Even a non-working keychain. (like McDs 97' toys) i really want a new one... These big gaps between releases I am sure aren't helping Bandai America....

I don't know about you guys, but I heard a little Tamagotchi beep in that video at about 1:40-1:45. :rolleyes:


I totally heard that too LOL I was going to point it out if no one else had heard it too XD

This is VERY strange. In my opinion its like Nintendo turning into a Supermarket. Tamagotchi IS NOT: Clothes, make-up, furnishing etc. Its...TAMAGOTCHI!!! Tamagotchi is: Virtual pets, Figurines more Tamagotchis, Anime. They only put A BIT of Tamagotchi into this Tamagotchi L.I.F.E line :P


Actually nintendo has put out a ton of stuff over the years like candy, plushes and toys, and shirts, bath soap, and stuff. We used to have a clip art from Nintendo on our Apple IIE....

I think what people have to remember is that this was a licensing expo - in other words, they are talking about selling the rights to use Tamagotchi characters and likeness to other companies........ Bandai owns the rights to Tamagotchi already, why would they need to license it out to make another toy?? Why would they mention it at this type of expo???

They still might come out with another Tamagotchi pet, but they might use this form of marketing to generate a buzz before taking that leap. They haven't said that they AREN'T coming out with a new Tamagotchi pet. They might want to keep as much on the DL as they can till it's about time for release to keep other competitors from knowing what they are doing.

This fake optimism really makes me sad.

BanDai America has nothing to do with this, they aren't making another toy probably. And if they are, it'll be based on the vintage series. Which quite frankly, I don't care about it.

Why can't it be based on what japan has been doing? :( I mean, the anime, arcade games.. But no, we won't be seeing any of that! Just more vintage crud! Cause you know, EVERYONE grew up with those and not the connection era or even the modern era! NOPE!

I think Bandai should've made more Tamagotchi videogames. I really enjoyed Tamagotchi connection corner shop (I like the dentist game xD) and it's sequel.

I'm a 21 year old female & I would not buy any of that stuff.
It could just be me but I think they're going about it the wrong way if that is their target age group.
I don't like graphic tees- I can't wear those to work & I wouldn't wear them out & about. Personally, I've just never liked graphic tees & I try to keep a more professional/tastefully stylish look most days. Why would I want tama make up? If I were a kid & wanted some play make up- yeah, sure. But I'll stick with well established brands whose whole "life" (no pun intended) is cosmetics. I also wouldn't buy tama furnishings for my house. That isn't the direction I'm trying to go with my home decor.
Maybe I just take myself a little too seriously or something, but I like Tamagotchi for the Tamagotchi. None of that stuff holds a place in my life.
Key chains & stuff would actually be pretty cool, I like key chains (I currently have a Hello Kitty key chain). Any little knickknacks that tastefully add a little fun & tell someone about your personality: I'm game. But as a professional adult in their target age group, I'm not interested in most of that stuff.
I'm pretty disappointed.
But that's just my 2 cents.

I completely agree.
Who would buy TAMAGOTCHI clothes? They normally go to the shops in the local shopping malls - I don't get who will buy Tamagotchi clothes. Plushes, keychains, Tamagotchis themselves are all whats in Tamagotchi. Before this project came in I didn't even think (even for a moment) that it was going to be about clothes. I'm sure it would of been fine if there were some Mametchi Clocks, Memetchi Pencil Toppers etc. Although I think clothes - well, its gone too far.

Without "that vintage crud" you wouldn't have the aspects of Tamagotchi you DO like. Keep that in mind. Without the success of the original there would be no connections, no anime, no new merchandise period.

Yes, and all of that stuff I do like from tamagotchi are stuck in Japan, which is where they innovate with each release. BanDai America's releases gone stale, and then they decided to go the cheap easy way and just market retro crap, cause you know, that's what IN right now!
