There are a total of 8 shells to choose from, thats right, not 6, but 8! Bandai America has created 2 exclusive shell designs that we are so excited about! Flocked Light Pink and Flocked Light Blue are joining the 6 wave 2 designs for a total of 8 shells to choose from. These exclusive shells are pastel based colors and are SUPER CUTE! Both Flocked shells feature bright pink buttons to accent their gorgeous pastel shells.

These wave 2 designs should be available at your favorite retail stores soon, as always be sure to stay tuned as we deliver the latest news. Which wave 2 shell is your favorite?

Interesting, they actually are flocked. This is the first time a Tamagotchi has been released covered in something other than paint and smoothed plastic. I like the clear purple, clear green, and red and white shells (the last because it reminds me of my Hanerutchi Sotilde) - but the swirly design is my favourite.

Wow, that's really pretty. I wonder if the texture is as soft as it looks (the flocked ones)?? I want to try touching one in person...

According to Walmart's website, they're shipping on March 6th! Not too long of a wait.

I really like the clear green design, definitely gonna go for that one. The flocked ones look neat as well!

The flocked shells are really novel to see - what a pity that we didn't get those here in the UK!

The flocked shells are cool, but I'm a very tactile-sensitive person, and the texture of flocking sends shivers up my spine. XD

 

A lot of these designs are great, though. Where I have an old P2, I might wait to pick one up. Hopefully, the paint won't rub off like the Anniversary P1 minis.

Unfortunately, it seems that these are just P1-based Minis again, but in different shells. As far as I know, we haven't seen a P2 Mini yet - goodness knows, I'd buy one if they were offering one. :lol:

I've been bugging Gamestop here in the states about them because that's where I got my 20th Anniversary V1 mini, but they don't have any info about if/when they're getting any more. I heard Target got some, but I never saw them and I'm not even sure where they were putting them in the aisle, if it was in electronics, toys, girls' toys isle, whatever... Anyone else know?

I never expected to see them put flocking on a tamagotchi! They look really soft. I can't imagine they would stay so pure and pastel looking, though, considering how the minis are more like a keychain than a regular tama... the red and navy flocked ones sure look impressive, though, they're so bold!

I'm in the States, on the east coast specifically, and my fiancé happened to see a sizable display of them near the nerf stuff at Walmart? We haven't noticed them at any other stores.
