I'm so so so so so excited as well! Screw color screens; IT'S A NEW TAMAGOTCHI AND THAT'S WHAT MATTERS

 

My post from Tama-Zone (bit harsh though)

They all look lovely!
If I see one more complaint about this Tamagotchi I'm seriously gonna lose it. All these despicable Tamagotchi "fans" don't know how to do anything except complain instead of being excited about the possibilities of this new toy. It's a new Tamagotchi and it's gonna have new characters, and create potential for even more future Tamagotchis.

People have opinions but complaining about every little detail is ridiculous. People should be more supportive of what they love instead of being so desperate to hate everything Bandai America does. Tamagotchi LIFE WAS a fiasco, but this is an actual Tamagotchi TOY.

Okay so, the black and white screen.
Do you hate all your vintages and connections for being in black and white? If you want color Tamagotchis, buy the Japanese ones. Or the English iD L, which was $70; want this new Tamagotchi to cost this much?

I personally prefer black and white screens but it's not for nostalgic reasons; color Tamagotchis' screens scratch easily, the batteries die in a few weeks on the lowest brightness setting, and the characters are relatively small on the screen.

I am truly excited for this new Tamagotchi and any other news in store for us soon; can't wait to see how Bandai will market the Tamagotchi Friends and of course, I am eager to find out about the new web site!

 

AGREED!
I am super happy it's gonna be a black and white screen one, cause the tamaGO's display was really nice in my opinion and I regreted that it was so boring I had to sell it x/ I want the white one, with pantera-like spots on it, I find it VERY pretty. *__* I am definietly getting one once they appear on ebay. ^__^

I'd say this has been a pleasant turn of events. I know most everyone was hoping for a color screen one, however considering the huge failure of the Tama-Go, it's nothing short of a miracle that we're getting a new Tamagotchi model in the first place. I for one am optimistic about Tamagotchi's future. Perhaps it isn't as dead as we thought in the Western world. :)

 

Ra,

150% agreed!  Double that percentage as long as Bandai America doesn't rely on Tamagotchi L.I.F.E. alone to get the job done and also releases Tamagotchi Friends here in the US and Canada.  On the other hand, I said it at Tama Zone and I'll say it here that I will more than gladly import this version direct from the UK if it has to be done.

Out of those designs, sign me up for the white and blue.  It looks close enough to a dalmatian and its spots if you ask me.  :)

Ugh! I want to know more about it! Still 9 more days until the website if I remember correctly, I'm assuming they will tell us more about it there. I'm having trouble choosing which design(s) I'd get. I want 2 but with that price it seems unlikely I'll be getting 2.

I find these hideous. the bottom 3 are just idl's but if some kid spray painted them and added a design. afwul. I'd be more excited for this tamagotchi if they werent taking a design from a tama we already have that 1. is in color and 2. is in english.  I dont mind that its black and white but come up with your own dang shell molds.  This is like a bad Chinese knock off of the idl.  Like the time we found the TMGC+C knock off that was black ad white but had the offical shell.  I wont be buying this unless the gameplay is significantly different from other versions.

Just some flaws I noticed in the stock photos. You would think they’d use tamas in better condition for stock photos, or at least use photoshop and make them look better

It makes me scared for the quality of these tamas :/

I saw those... I think maybe someone was photo shopping those iDL looking ones. I would bet they are to look more so like the printed ones. I hope they have a few more colors of the printed types.

Nobody says you have to buy one...

Oh, I just noticed that too. I do agree with Ciara, though, about the designs and the shell. Look really cheap, but maybe they look better in person? With the Connections they at least tried to differentiate the versions with different antennas. Sure, the shell was the same, but the designs were all different and never repeated.

The Tamagotchi Friends logo on the Tamagotchi...so very ugly. It's so out of place, don't you think?

For almost 40 USD for me, eh...maybe I should stick to my Connections if I want black-and-white and the ID L for color and the shell.

Incidentally, Yumemitchi looks adorable in monochrome. :3

I wasn't saying I didn't like the tamas, I really want one, I just hope it's not built as cheaply as it looks.

Nope nope Britty, just directing it to the people complaining without having much info on it.

These could just be prototypes. I am just pleased someone other than Japan/China is trying to make a tamagotchi again.

Still not America, though... :( I give props to the UK for trying. And who knows, maybe it'll sell so well that we'll get them in stores over here and I'd get to avoid insane shipping prices.

I found an advert in a toy magazine. They look extremely fat- almost as bad as the Tama-Go

Mametchi looks bizzare? Hope thats not his adult because its weird.

It looks like the P's characters in an iD L shell too. Weird.

Texting looks promising, although the bumping concerns me.

omg I'll be severely disappointed if it's bigger than the iD L. That mametchi sprite reminds me of knock-off tama sprites. I'm still optimistic for its new features though! My main concern is the size. In the article it even mentioned how you everyone used to keep thier Tamagotchis in their pockets and I saw that as a glimmer of hope for it maybe being even smaller than the iD L, but I guess not :/

They actually look like they're the same size as the iD L, to me? Definitely not as thick as the Tama-Go, that's for sure. But it's hard to tell from those stock photos and magazine article, anyway.

 

It's great to see that there's going to be "massive marketing support" for Tamagotchi Friends.

 

I'll be staying tuned for "www.tamagotchifriends.com", coming November 23 - Tamagotchi's (and Mametchi's) Birthday/Anniversary, fittingly. :)
