Hm....... Is it just me... or does it seem like it's almost impossible to find a tamagotchi connection these days at local stores...??? Every toy store / retail giant (such as wal-mart) is completely out of stock, and the websites of the stores even say 'out of stock'... what's the deal here...?? anyone heard anything? i know wal-mart has clearanced out or is in the process of clearancing all the nohohon's and nano"" pets. i hope wal-mart gets more tama+ in...

I am glad someone else has noticed the absence here in Oz! It's good they are coming back too. I will eventually get another exciting coloured one. But I would prefer a keitai if I could ever get my hands on one. I am surprised there isn't someone in Oz getting a whole load of them in and auctioning them off on Ebay for loads. They make stacks in the US!

I wouldn't trust E-bay as much rather than going downtown to zellers/walmart/superstore and getting a tamagotchi, even though they have pulled a houdini off the shelves...
Maybe it's like one of those lock up things, like how disney stops making DVDs for a certain movie in a certain amount of time, so Bandai can have more money to get the Canadian/American(or just say english...) Keitai out... ever considered that...?

that is true, but they could be using a false picture. My sister was buying gifts on ebay for her boyfriend, she bought him a figurine of Tim Duncan, but when it came in the mail, it was a different guy with a broken arm..
