Can someone be kind enough to explain what a Tama-Go is please?

Recommended Posts

As many of you have seen already from some of my posts, I literally only know the original and friends versions. I have no clue what a Tama-Go is.

 

i don't understand the 4U, ID L, or P's

 

I am desperatly trying to get more for my collection and to understand all of these that I have missed. I a 28, and just got back into it.....I need some help guys and gals.

 

Please send me some messages or add me as a friend...anything, and try to help me. I don't even know what to get next.

A Tama-Go is the newest version BEFORE the Tamagotchi Friends. It's much larger than your average Tamagotchi. You can change the faceplate on the front, and buy separate figures to put on top and unlock more games and shops. It's a fun version and is quite easy to understand.

You might find it interesting to read binary's Tama-Go log - created when the tama was about to be launched and BanDai offered some of the TamaTalk staff an opportunity to test and review it.

Binary's log gives you are really good insight into how this tama differs from previous versions that you will be more familiar with from your older versions:

The figurines were a neat idea to attach to the Tama-Go to add extra games and features and could be collected as separate items.

Another nice feature was the ability to change the face plate so you could create your own shell designs. There are several topics on the forums by members who have shared their designs for everyone at TamaTalk to use.

 

A lot of ppl would probably suggest that the newer versions are better / in colour, etc. but I think if you are easing yourself into updating your knowledge and collecting you might find it interesting to get hold of one - so that you experience how the tama versions changed from the V1-V4.5, then V5 / V6 Music Star and onto things like the Tama-Go. (The Tama-Go is usually not as pricey as some of the more recent tama version launches either).

 

Here's a link to the Instruction Manual: http://www.tamatalk.com/IB/topic/169054-tama-go-tmgo-instruction-manual/ which I think is always a useful quick & basic guide to what a tama is about and any interesting features.

The 4U, iD L and P's are all colour tamas. In order of release they are: the iD L, the P's, and the 4U (which is quite new, actually).

 

I suggest doing what TamaMum said, though - ease yourself into tamas by perhaps collecting the classic black-and-white connections to appreciate the evolution, and then maybe get a colour tamagotchi later on. It's up to you at the end of the day!

 

To be honest if you're going for colour tamas, I would get an iDL first. Again, it's just another evolution of tamagotchis, so I think you'd appreciate the separate versions if you got them in order, especially with the iDL. But then I do have three ;)

 

So yeah. Happy tama collecting, and welcome back!

Thank you everyone! I will seriously have to start from original.

 

Can anyone list all of the tama versions in order? Or know where to find the list? I have missed out on almost all of them

^this is a list. There is a version missing from the Japanese list, which is the Tamagotchi iD L, but it is under the English releases. the iD L came out in both Jpanese and English, but the English version did not come to the rest of the world other than China, some parts of the UK, and a few other Asian countries if I remember correctly.

A lot of people use a lot of different sites. I mainly use eBay and sometimes Amazon. I've also heard of people buying through Yahoo Japan or buying through Japanese stores such as AmiAmi, Hobby Link Japan, and CD Japan. I've heard the good and bad from all sites. If you're wanting to get older versions eBay and Amazon would be your best bet. Yahoo Japan supposedly is good as well with Japanese versions, from what I've heard.
