You do make a good point. I do wish Bandai America would concentrate on improving Tamagotchi rather than just release a bunch of retro merchandise. Merchandising should be used to help make people aware of the product not replace the product entirely. Why have Tamagotchi clothes and furniture when actual Tamagotchis are nowhere to be seen on store shelves? I'm still hoping that an actual Tamagotchi is in the cards though. If it is it probably won't be announced until Toyfair early next year.

-_- There better be a new tamagotchi! I really don't want tacky furniture invading my room. All that Bandai is into is making money. I think I'd better start stocking up on tamagotchis before the prices go
BOOM!

Could you just imagine having Tamagotchi furniture in your house?

Haha, I feel the need to feed it.
Maybe even walk it. Wipe the cushions.

That's some needy furniture.

Even releasing old versions is better. I would buy old versions if they were in stores, why can't they just do that?

I wonder why Bandai/SB has stopped releasing information about this line of products, considering they've participated in the Licensing Expo several months back?

Bandai seriously needs to do a customer survey to see what people ACTUALLY WANT.

Not some random bull about kids' makeup and furniture....

Obviously, there hasn't been any other information released about Tamagotchi LIFE.

Also, Tamatown is down.

Just what could Bandai be doing? At least they should've said something on their blog to keep us updated.

I actually really like the jacket, it's very retro (I'm almost 27). The other clothes look totally normal to me, too, and yes, appropriate for my age (maybe we live in different worlds? lol). But I wouldn't be able to tell it has anything to do with tamagotchi, actually, more with Atari and general early 90's pop culture.
Sounds like Bandai is scared of releasing actual toys. While I'm not in the US so Idk how things are there, guess they don't see demand for the virtual pets much. They closed Bandai Entertainment too which released dvds, manga, etc who knows what they're planning now. I was hoping those Aquapets would inspire them to release pet stuff outside of Japan.

I wish Bandai would create or bring back to life some of the older Tamagotchis but refreshed. How about a Devilgotchi and Angelgotchi Connection? They grow and you connect them to battle perchance? Good vs. Evil Posted ImagePosted Image

With the new Furby appearing on Christmas hot toy lists it wouldn't surprise me at all if Furby's success inspires Bandai to get off their butts and release a new and improved Tamagotchi. I mean these are the two hottest electronic pets ever made. It'd be great to have them both on store shelves again!

It's not a VPet. : o

Plus, I'm still not liking this, since that it is not going where the Japanese series is.

Well, earlier it was confirmed to just be a crappy iPhone app that's based on the P1 series, and also a clothing line aimed towards the "XD IM SUCH A NERD!!!" Crowd

Sorry.. I'm just bitter about this thing, :/

I don't like kids that walk around in school wearing stupid poorly-ironed on promotion art t-shirts. Seriously, do people even know what they are doing when they slap...say, Mario or Sonic on a shirt?

My friend has a very...colorful variety of Phineas and Ferb and Mario shirts. And I don't even think he knows when the Mario art on his shirt was made. 1992.
