Aaaaaarrrgh!!! NO!! Himespetchi requires 2 TF?? T_______T

 

I honestly am starting to doubt too about the connection: it would be too kind for Bandai's usual style! XD I'm a bit upset they completely ignore how much the Japanese TMGC products sell even in Western Countries and I also think that there might be a discrete amount of Japanese fans that collect tamagotchis, maybe even ordering from Internet the West-only ones.

 

Yeah Himespetchi and Yumemitshi are the only two characters you can only get through connecting, I couldn't care less about Yumemitshi but not having Himespetchi.... whyyyyy.... :'(

 

I don't think it would be fair if Bandai japan sould their tamagotchis well, outside japan, because everybody would buy japan's ones instead of US/UK ones lol

I don't know if the friends actually sells in japan, I undertand the Tama-Go got a japanese release and it didn't go too well so I'm not expecting much people to get the TF's

also I've seen the TF's in few japanese sites, and they were selling from quite expensive, it must be hard to get for them xD

 

AAAAAAAAAAAAAANYWAY, today I went to a toy shop, and gues what I fouuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuund

hadn't see them in real life yet so this was quite a suprize for me, even though I don't like this version neither the way they advertised it, I have to say they made a really good job when it comes to the packaging, this one looks better than the previous ones we got, the shape and everything are really original.

 

Although they seem to be fragile, that's probably why they covered them in a hard plastic box lol

 

I hope for a future version (with better characters and features, so I would want to buy it) they use a similar packaging.

Also the TFs are really smaller than I expected, everybody was complaining about the size but like, I fon't get what's so  wrong about it xD

 

there's something that killed me though, THAT PRICE, 28€ what's about 36$, I know Tamagotchis are still a lot cheaper than most toys, but the unfair price between places makes me mad, I refuse to buy something they sell this way, even if I don't want this version, I want us to have the american price >:I

I also got an eye in this little guy, I really like the dalmatian and leopard designs, the gem ones are too much like the iD L, and the american ones are way too ugly, this ones are simple and original, so I like them more. Also they don't look that girly at all :)

 

Also did you realize in the first pictures? They are not in the girls toys section, I'm glad spanish shops still don't see them as something for girls despite the add and comercials (because the fact that the comercial said amigas (Friends - only for girls) instead of amigos (Friends - for both girls and boys) made me really angry)

it made me a little bit happy to see them in the unisex toys ;)

 

In conclussion, I still don't like this version and I won't buy it, but I have to say good job to BanDai because the packaging and design overall is really good~~

To all of those bashing the Tamagotchi Friends greyscale screen... you do realise you can change the contrast by pressing the B and C button at the same time, right? o.o; That's what I did to lighten the screen from being so dark, and it improved my Tamagotchi Friends experience.

x.Bleachie, don't use that words like we were stupid please: everyone perfectly knows the contrast can be adjusted!

 

I don't know which TF version do you have, but I can ensure you the European one, even with the lightest and better contrast adjustment, is really really hard to see, unless you have the perfect light in the perfect angle. It is even really hard to play on evening, since artificial lights are not the best! And I have perfect sight with no problems at all: if I'm struggling to see what's on the screen, think to the other kids that might see not so well! Plus, every single TF has different screen with different issues.

 

So please, don't treat us like we are pretending and complaining out of the nowhere. TF is cute but it has problems, this is not hatred, these are facts.

Before, I didn't even realize these had personalities like the Ps do. Its a wonder why I kept getting Cofferitchi. Lol. I do wish they put something into the info like they did for the Ps. Silly me for not realizing it sooner. That is what we call an... Easter Egg? Hahaha.

I am enjoying it. I have even swapped my design lid around. They should totally get more lids out, they look sweet. It does give it a different feeling too. Then the whole solid having the iDL shell design on the back without going through the front. (BFF) They are in fact all built a little different. Even the tape was different and they all came from the same lot. *shrug*

I apologize if you mistook my words as if I was talking down to you all, but that was not my intention. I was just letting y'all know in case you didn't.  So please, don't lecture me either.

I like the Friends, but the shells seems cheaply made.
I first bought the purple one with the painted gems on it. Noticed that the paint started rubbing off where the shell is raised. The shell also had two unattractive gaps at the top where the faceplate was placed.
I later bought a pink one (iDL shell) looked a bit better. But still had the little gaps. Overall I enjoy the TF, I unlocked all the games, still working on the jewelry however haha

I personally find it nice. :D  Now that's said, let me explain why.

 

I ran across a topic started by Eternal Mametchi Fan, where she showed a clip of Toy Testerz or something testing out the Tamagotchi Friends.

 

I like the idea of the 'bump' feature! And the designs and packaging are neat, too. I think they borrowed a few details from the old Tama versions (presents, friends, etc.). Another thing I LOVE is the idea of sending messages to another Tama. I'm not sure how long it takes to type a message, seeing the Tama Friends has limited buttons.

 

My only personal complaint is that the size is so big. Big for me, because I am not fond of the v7.

 

I would enjoy owning a TF, but no one else around here knows what a Tama is (*sighs heavily*) and this TF version stresses it's connection feature, the messages, bump thing, and all that. I would definitely pick one up if a few people around here had the TF Tamas so I could communicate with them and have fun with my own TF Tama. -_-

 

So yeah. That's basically it.

28 dollars? For a Tamagotchi that isn't the best quality?! Well since I'm too tempted, I SUPPOSE I will buy it and try it out, just for the sake of doing it. :P
