...a P1 and an Angelgotch off of ebay!! I'm super excited. I haven't played with a vintage Tama since I was a child, back in the 90s. It will be so refreshing to play with the old Tamas again.

 

The P1 is new in the box and comes with the Tamagotchi Care Guide and Record Book, as well as a Tamagotchi movie. I am most excited about the Record Book; I had no idea that these even existed when I was a kid. Do you guys know if it is a rare find?

 

The Angelgotch is also new in the package and it is coming from Japan, so it won't get here for a while, estimated arrival is some time in June. I am really excited, as I have never played with an Angelgotch.

 

I am nervous about the screws on the back, though. I have heard so many things about them being hard to remove.  :(

I don't recall a guide book, but I know they are out there. It was likely due to my pokemon. I would guess its more rare to find now, so yes, likely a rare find.

What color is the shell?

The P1? It is purple with pink buttons and pink around the screen. Here is a link to the book for sale on Amazon: http://www.amazon.co...amagotchi guide

Ooh fun. I wouldn't mind that color combo either.

Oh I remember that.

Do be careful when removing the screws. Vintage tamagotchis are notorious for their soft screws which break off and get jammed inside the shell. As soon as you can, remove them and replace them with modern ones. You can use small screws from other electronics or even spares which come in glasses repair kits etc. Also, here's a guide on helping you out to remove the stuck screws: http://tama-zone.com...showtopic=22127 (guides, hope it's okay to link this) Good luck!

 

Ra,

@SailorRosette: I think I would have preferred a different color combo, but the important thing was getting a new-in-box P1/P2 for a decent price, and when I saw that, along with the book, for under $60, I decided the color didn't matter so much and that I needed to jump on that deal.  :lol:

 

TamaMum and Ra, thanks so much for the links and advice. I appreciate it and will definitely be sure to take advantage of it when my vintage Tamas finally arrive.  ^_^

Awesome job on getting it with the care guide!  I've been trying to find one off and on for a while, but everyone wants crazy buy-it-now prices on ebay and amazon.

 

Enjoy your vintage tama :D

The care guide is pretty rare, given that usually people just threw it away when they opened the new tama. I shared P1 before with my brother, though I eventually lost it. A year later I found out my brother had dissected it, for whatever reason, he has a sort of fetish for dissecting tamagotchis and other virtual pets, so I always make sure I don't leave my tamas in his room or I'll find their remains a few days later. I'm currently running an Angelgotchi right now, and I like it much more, the whole touch-screen thing is really cool. The screws aren't too hard for me, you just need to be really careful.

Hope you have fun with your new tamas :D

I believe i saw one on Ebay for about 5 dollars I think. Unless it wasn't the care book you are talking about.
