I contacted Bandai South Asia via Facebook to see if they're still selling Tamagotchi iD Ls in Asia, because I was hoping they'd still be available on eBay closer to my birthday. This is what they said:

Bandai South Asia - Girls & Boys Toys Official Page
Me: Hi, are you still selling Tamagotchi iDL English ver.? Or have you stopped making them now?
Bandai South Asia - Girls & Boys Toys Official Page: Hi we are still selling Tamagotchi iDL (English version) in stores
Me: Great! Just curious, do you have any plans to sell them in Australia?
Bandai South Asia - Girls & Boys Toys Official Page: hi and sorry for the late reply! maybe in the near future
Me: That's okay, thankyou so much for replying though! Even a maybe is good enough for me!!
Bandai South Asia - Girls & Boys Toys Official Page: no problem! if there's any news, we will update here

The reason I posted this is because of the way they answered my question about whether the Tamagotchi iD L would ever make its way to Australia (especially after they were sold in the UK). They said maybe in the near future... if they had absolutely no plans for it, wouldn't they have said, "maybe sometime in the future" or something? The way they said the "near future" made me think that they have some sort of plan for the near future, otherwise they wouldn't have used that word.
I'm going to keep a lookout at all the usual stores that get Tamagotchis for the next few months, hopefully we get them because I'll buy two of them.

Another thing I want to mention is that we can't pry any information out of Funtastic anymore because I emailed them a few weeks ago, and they told me that they are no longer the distributors of Tamagotchi. The most recent Tamagotchi releases, the second wave of Tama-Go and the first (and only, in Australia), wave of figures were all distributed by someone else - I think it was TLS or something? I Googled them but didn't find any information on them or if they were going to continue distributing Tamagotchi in Australia.

**cries in joy**

I am literally CRYING right now! I already have an iD L but it's purple, and purple is an ugly colour. So i'd LOVE to get a blue or yellow one! And I could sell and trade some iD Ls on TamaTalk B)

HAPPINESS! I LIVE IN AUSTRALIA, WOOOOT!

i messaged bandai south asia - girls & boys toys official page on facebook asking if they were planning on selling tamagotchi iD L in Australia and their response was "Hi, thank you for your inquiry. we are currently considering :)"

this isn't a definite yes but let's keep our fingers crossed! i really hope this happens! c:

That looks very promising, doesn't it?

 

Very promising.

 

I hate to be a negative nancy, but we don't exactly know if it's coming to Australia and/or other countries or not. Yet again, I may be wrong. I'm just warning you to not hang your hopes up quite yet. ;)

 

After all, if this is not true, I don't want anyone getting upset over nothing. :(

I doubt it, they have stopped making ID L's, and they're making P's but I doubt an English P's because its so text heavy and hard to translate -_-

i just got a reply from bandai, the same facebook page and they said they can only say for now. i'm guessing that means it isn't definate that they will be releasing them, but it is highly possible
