They are for some reason advertising that its better than a egg.....

My mom said the translation for Tamago is Egg. After so many years I don't understand why they would revert to that type of commercial.

I have to agree you're talking about the country that has a cafe where you pay to hug someone......

Yes you are right other cents tamago means egg which is part of the origin of the name TAMAGOtchi the tchi being part of the katakana ( English words spoken in Japanese) for watch making tamagotchi meaning egg watch
I think what the commercials are trying to do is talk about an egg vs a p's saying that an egg tastes good but you can't play or do anything with it

It's in this commercial which was what I was talking about it

It's a contest for people in Japan. They can get entries if they take an older-version Tamagotchi toy to Tama Depa when they buy the Tamagotchi P's upon release. The winner gets their own character and their favourite items will become new download items as well. (According to the Japanese event site)

I'm getting one for only $40AUD. Not gonna say the site, because then everyone would buy them and leave none left for me. XD I'll get it as a Christmas present. :D My mama already said yes. ^_^

That sounds fishy since Hobby Link Japan would be selling them the retail pricing just like anyone else in Japan.

HLJ is 10% off.

The website that EMF is talking about, usually has tamagotchi pets for 21% off.

heh!

I'm definitely getting one soon, thinking about already sending my uncle a link from HLJ.
By the way, how much is the shipping fee to Poland there, or any non-UK european country? I don't see any information there.

If it's the Rakuten website, the preorders on that site look to be already sold out.

Look on bandai Japan's YouTube page. :)

Also, you'd probably need to type tamagotchi in Japanese if you wanted to find this video..

Edit: the link above doesn't work.. It redirects you to bandai America's page, hmm..

Thanks! Does anyone know how much shipping costs?
All the white ones and the love melody set (which is what I really wanted) are gone :angry:
