V3 fake on ebay?

Recommended Posts

I'm not sure, this one doesn't look right to me because of the logo. That logo was only used on Music Stars (and only the later ones, that I'm aware of,) and that design on the tama is a US design iirc. Anyone know for sure?

Hm. I have that same shell with the same logo but it says "connection" under the logo as we'l and mine is real. I'm guessing maybe it's real, but the user scratched off/removed the "connection" part of the logo?

I don't think it was scratched off. The O in Tamagotchi looks different than the regular one, it's larger, and I found another one on ebay with the same weird logo:

it's real. they changed the logo during the second round. I had this one and 3 other's that just said "tamagotchi"

And yes it was legit as I got it from toys r us when they first released.

I have that blue Waves V3 with that logo and it's not fake ^_^ I can understand why it would seem like it though.

I never saw them in the US with those logos - maybe I just missed out on those designs. Did they change it in the middle of production? I've seen these same designs with the original logos too. Thanks for the info though, now I know and I won't be worried.

It's real. Not all say "Connection" under it.

My blue waves v3 looks like that also. I bought it on eBay, and it came from the Phillippines, if I remember correctly. It's not a fake.

Yeah. I think the Tamagotchi's legit. It would be an obvious fake if it were one such as 4 buttons, a weird name for the Tamagotchi or strange packaging different from the original in some way. Hope I helped.

      So I went to a white elephant gift exchange, and I actually ended up getting a fake Gigapet (A friend of mine brought it and suggested that I choose her package :p)! It's called a Digapet (they got real creative, I know) but it seems to be just a generic v-pet because the back of the package says it has 160 pets. I opened it up but I haven't tried it out yet because I've heard these things sometimes don't go to sleep, and I don't want to be up all night with it. I read the instructions and they're actually pretty well put together, the English is pretty good and they're pretty well formatted. Although apparently you have to give it laxatives, which is pretty strange, but amusing. XD Has anyone else heard, or owned this fake?

      Here’s another oddity, this time found on Mercari. Unfortunately, the listing there already sold, but nevertheless let’s take a looksy. Kids’ smart watches are all over online shops, but this one has a very unique feature packed in.
      (Unfortunately I can't link the listing so credit to Mercari seller "ocean")
      Behold the bootlegness in all its glory!!

      1)Take a look at the living room. It’s practically the same! Not only that, but the panda character is an edit of Kikitchi’s sprite. Admittedly, this doesn’t look half bad. It’s actually kind of cute!
      2)The lock screen is a stolen Bambi drawing! The watch face can be changed between a few different templates.
      3)It also features stolen icons from the official Tamas, well, except for the t-shirt thing. The upscale versions of them are also custom sprites.
      4)There are also some places to go, including a weird one in the bottom that might be a movie theater?
      5)Talking to a weird pink blob 6)Homescreen
      The watch also features a camera, photo gallery, and fitness stuff. There doesn’t appear to be buttons besides lock, volume, and reset, so this is most likely touch controlled. Later versions by A-Watch replace not-Kikitchi with a generic panda. BUT one listing on Amazon still offers this v-pet, and apparently pandas aren’t the only character! What to look for:
      -Blue or pink wristband that reads “A-Watch”
      -Flat surface around the screen with a black border around it and “OK” logo (later versions are a solid blue or pink)
      -Look for mentions of a pet game or cat icon on the main menu
      -No calling/texting/GPS tracking feature (common in other kids’ smart watches)

      Amazon listing:
      https://www.amazon.c...w_1541834232989

      This reminds me of the QPet, and it’s nice they actually made (somewhat) original sprites instead of totally aping Bandai’s work. If you already have one, please share your thoughts. Is this knockoff worthy of its $30 pricetag?

      So, something was off when I opened my 4U. There were a bunch of scratches on the screen, and the bottom looked like it was opened. (Box) It had original tape, but it had either been taken off or the stickiness weared off. However, the original batterys were there..
      I dont know yet, but if its not new, what should I do in this case? Should I ask for a (partial) refund off of false advertising?

      So Ive been looking for new Tamas on the internet and I found that a LOOOT of people buy tamagotchis that are FAKE and I also noticed that the fakes cost wayyyy to much. I thought I would point out the main features of fake Tamas for confused collectors so they dont buy fakes, and here they are:
      The amount of buttons- most that have over three are not real, although some reals have over three
      The name- usually if they are just called plainly virtual pet or something like that they will be knock-offs
      The brand on the back- some brands will put Bandai on the back, but still make sure
      Hope this helped some of you Tama fans! If you need any help with this, talk to KidRetro64, she knows her stuff. Thank you for reading,
