So it's the HK iD L alright... nothing new :P

Thanks so much for this information... and welcome to TamaTalk! :D

(Still, the 60-pund price tag is hefty)


Thank you ^_^

Yeah I agree the price is quite high, I guess they are a lot cheaper on taobao but after shipping and if I get import taxed I was guessing it would work out the same cost anyway.
I reckon it's an exclusive thing not an attempt at relaunch or they would've surely chosen a nationwide shop.

Thanks Neeklette! :D what a shame but hey something is something right? I'd be happy to get even that in the US! Hopefully if they do sell it here it's in various areas considering this country is so big..

If I recall correctly, doesn't it say on the back of the English iD L that its not supposed to be sold in Europe??

Bandai Europe or UK or whoever probably redid the packaging slightly.

There is a sticker on the back of the packaging basically stating safety regulations like they do with most toys in the UK. It is just stuck on the outer packaging.

Yeah I think everyone would love a relaunch, I'm just happy I happened to be back in England visiting my family for a few weeks just when they had this little promotion!

Another half-baked, half-hearted effort brought to you by Bandai :P

It's about time the Uk got a new Tama, I thought that they'd simply been discontinued her, and it was very upsetting :( but it looks like we're finally bringing out tamagotchi's over here again which is fantastic! :)

It's not an iD - they're just selling the HK iD L.

Well I was in Harrods yesterday they still have quite a lot of the iD L's I dont think they are selling that well and the display was pretty boring it was being sold next to a iPod dock dog pet thing. They did have it in all the colours as well, the only diference with the box is a large sticker on the back covering up all the Japanese instructions and replacing them with English ones. I did only take one photo as there was a shop assistant hovering behind me :/
