So I was cruising along on Ebay to keep tabs on this auction i was eyeing. When I found this on looking thing: 

http://www.ebay.com/...=item27d6a19cc8

 

Yes it has three buttons and the background looks legit but the logo... that's not a tamagotchi logo. And the backing looks legit.... Just thought the community should know that this thing is odd.

Well, look at the IR. if you could get another image of that, that would tell you if it was bootleg or not. It will be a darker IR cover, if its lighter, its boot.

No, it's real. the coloring is correct and differently colored from the fake.

The seller is also selling this one too , which is also real as evident by the egg on screen and the backing is identical to the pink one.

That doesn't look like a fake to me. I have the one posted above sold by the Amazon seller and it is nothing like the one OP posted from eBay. The one I have is cheaply made and it is very obvious - the one on eBay definitely looks more like a real Tamagotchi. The only thing that is strange is the backing but that may be because it is another country Tamagotchi - maybe Europe considering the ball chain. The picture on the top is similar to many other Tamagotchis as seen here:

Actually, this picture has been posted somewhere on TamaTalk:

(credit to Mothra, I think this is her picture) 

 

Anyway, these are all European Tamagotchi Plus models. The one in the upper left corner looks a lot similar to the one posted on eBay for the exception of the colors.

It IS fake. It looks exactly like the fake Tamagotchi in the review in this topic: http://www.tamatalk....e-of-fake-tama/

Why are people saying it looks "exactly" like that other fake? All the colors are wrong, the background paper is different, the IR port on the top looks nice and dark, and the info on the back looks different. I'm not saying it's legitimate but I don't think they're the same kind of fake as the one everyone keeps redirecting the naysayers to.

I have the fake in that topic and it is NOTHING like the one posted on eBay - it doesn't even look similar.

Sorta old but it ISN'T A FAKE.

 

The background is COMPLETELY different and the little design is a different color from the fake one on Amazon.

 

And the person who bought it gave POSITIVE feedback and said it worked perfectly.

I have 2 fakes that look just like this one, except the tama's background is like a real connection's one:

These little persons are actually baby dogs ^^ And they work great too, don't bother reading the Amazon reviews with people complaining. The instructions are in Japanese, but you just have to have played with other fakes before to easily figure all out, fakes all look alike you know.

 

You can have more infos on these tamas on my website: http://loveyourfaket...hi.blogspot.ca/

 

I bought them there for a dollar each plus shipping, 2 weeks ago: http://www.amazon.co...ils_o00_s00_i00
