Hello guyss!
So, I'm really looking forward on buying a tamagotchi id L. But since I dont know Japanese I need to buy the English version. I can only order it online but the thing is that there is alot of difference in price of the Japanese version and the English version. I found the Japapnese version ranging from 30 - 50 pounds.

While on the other hand the english version costs for about 110 - 130 pounds. Why is that?   :( Whi is the english version so expensive? If an of you have a tamagotchi id l please attach a picture too?  :D

THankyouu.

 Maybe because Tamagotchi iD L english is rarely to find in some country. Idk why in my country, when I asked my cousin about Tamagotchi iD L english price in my country, is cheap ; about 62,40 $US.

The English version is so expensive because they have stopped making them - and even though they were in English, they were never sold anywhere outside of Asia. A shop in London called Harrods is actually selling the English version right now for around 60 euros, so if you live near there or have a friend who will get one for you, then that might be an alternative option from paying up the wall for one. 

 

I actually have a Japanese iD L, and I don't speak Japanese either - there are a lot of guides on this site that can help you with the translations, and it follows the general format of previous Tamagotchi versions, so if you have played one before, it shouldn't be that hard to pick up. 

 

Here is a post by Binary I always go to if I have any questions:

Binary's translated all of the menu options; it's incredibly useful.

Just to be on the safe side, I'd look for a listing that shows a picture of the iD L itself, unless you don't mind getting a Japanese one by accident.

I am not sure about the listing but I know that the English 1 is so expensive because that it is so rare.

Really? I couldn't find it on Harrod's website at all, because I wanted to see if I could try to order one from there lol. They were talking about the iD l's being in the store in this thread:

In the picture that neonmoo posted, those definitely look like iD l's to me. 

 

As for the ebay thing, I would definitely make sure that it is an english one before you go for it. You can message the seller and see if they will respond in a timely manner?

It's pretty much self-explanatory. The seller is from Japan.

 

The English version of the iD L is released in Hong Kong.

well, just because it's not on the website doesn't mean that they're not selling them. I imagine it would be hard for stores to put everything they can possibly sell on their website. You could try calling them instead?

It would be better if you can personally visit the store and grab it yourself. No waiting for shipments! :D
