Relive that 90s childhood nostalgia
Not exactly a bargain but hey they are back!
IMO they are only worth $5-10 not $34+P+H
Check ebay some are going for triple that price
Yep, some of the rarer versions have cleared $400.
And I think $30 is a fair price. These were originally a Japanese only release (20th anniversary) and they're selling for $100+
Which ones cleared $400?? I bought a version 3 and version 5 in 1998, I wonder how much they are worth??
@Homr: You can check yourself. Probably a lot. With the anniversary Japan went nuts over them, I remember seeing them for ~$50 at second hand shops, last year $200+.
@Homr: Check this one out:
@j4ck: wtf? Thats insane
who remmebers hacking this thing… where you put a piece of paper into the battery slot and keep pulling it in and out to glitch it so you end up getting a beast of a digimon.. wonder if that still works with this hahaha
Yeah, and either get poomon or that super awesome guy. Good times
Followed by my computing teacher "confiscating" it and then catching him playing on his own!
What an absolute nerd!
Okay I'll order 2.
Shitmon is my spirit animal. I got him no matter what I tried.
that would be mamemon
Mamemon is the little bomb guy.
'super awesome guy' was Teddymon, people used to come to me to have me shove things in their slots….. o.O
Yeah used to use the plastic tab all the time. I was too young to understand exactly what I was doing (seems like constantly resetting) but somehow you could end up with an ultimate digimon.
Now that I think about it, I don't even know if you could get them legitimately (if you could somehow raise your digimon to evolve into it). I just remember looking after it, it dying then rinse and repeat.
Used to do the same with Game & Watches, brought on a whole new level of gameplay.
I did that and I always ended up getting the "poo" digimon
I remember the glitch on Pokémon for Game Boy, if follow certain steps & you went back and forth in a particular spot, eventually the screen goes black and the game makes weird screeching noises, then a wild ‘MissingNo. (missing number)’ appears.
And it is a weird glitched out creature that looks like this (warning viewer discretion advised).
Kind of slightly terrifying for a kid, and now as an adult, as this is probably what will be ruling over human reproduction and education in the near future.
I feel like this would be way better as a free app than a $40 piece of plastic
A "Free" app with a $149 "truckload of digifood" transaction to keep your Digimon alive you mean?
I get your sentiments but no way would it play anything like the original once the licence holder sees that sweet micro-transaction money.
LOL WHAT i remember these being $10 as a kid.
I remember them being around $20.
While the ones where you shake were $40-50.
Seems about right once you adjust for inflation, plus this is probably more targeted towards 90's kids who have more disposable income as adults
this is probably more targeted towards 90's kids who have more disposable income as adults
this is probably more targeted towards 90's kids who have more disposable income as adults
HELLO IT'S A ME
I wouldn't pin it on inflation. It's definitely a collectable/retro/rerun/branding price hike. The electronics in these wouldn't have cost $10 to make back in the day, let alone now. They probably saw what they go on ebay for so did a rerun for a similar price.
We can buy electronics far more complex than this for cheaper. Mice, keyboards, steam link when on sale.
I'm glad I still have one of my old ones sitting in a box. I even customized the background and mixed and matched casing using friends units.
Yep, distinctly remember seeing the 19.95 tags on them in the toy store as a kid.
Price is reasonable for 2019.
Most were $39.99
I know cuz I was hooked in the 90s.
It's like someone just found stock of 500k of these in a warehouse and thought fk yeah lets make some cash. Absolutely pathetic.
I'll take two.
Considering how much they sell 2nd hand these days, that's a great deal
Just looked up prices of 2nd Hand, glad I still have mine.
Now i just realised i got punked hard, busy spamming ABC codes or shake pendulum version furiously during battle.
I guess the verdict has already cast-in after the initial pairing, as this thing has no wireless radio transmission.
I was just thinking the exact same thing.
EB Games had these on Pre-Order for $38 + Delivery, which appears to be out of stock now.
EDIT: Price still showing with Google Search
There you go, so it is a bargain of some sort. Thanks
Teddy Mon is the best. Ultimate Grey Mon is 2ns best.
no love for mamemon ?
MAMEMON FOR LIFE!!!
Me: I'm now an adult, I'm going to be good with my money and save to buy adult things
Also Me: Digiiigiiimon DigiVice! Digimon DigiVice! Take all my money.
username checks out, not even yourself
Everyone's probably gunna buy at least 2 right?
Who else are you gunna battle with now that you don't go to school
Ozb Digimon Battleground Meetup
Bought 3. 1 for me, my bro and sis. Keen to do the Augumon 100 meat cheat and school those suckers.
Not a Tamagotchi
Japan Version of this are being sold on Amazon AU via Third Party Sellers for $100+
What is this?
Something your dad use to play
And the superstition button presses during combat but we all know now that the winner is decided as soon as you unlink the 2 devices….
How dare you ruin my childhood like this
i wanked the pendulum shake so hard to win the battle back then
I used to battle and as soon as we connected we'd run away from each other to see if it still worked so far away haha as a kid I guess we thought it had some kind of signal still going to the two devices
Did you end up figuring how was the winner decided??
Usually who ever mashed the buttons harder
or 'always win' button sequences
The time when the Digimon is sleeping and it's the counted day for it to Digivolve and you keep turning the lights on and off to see which evolution you got O:
"Engage the exclusive dock ‘n rock feature"
Sold me at the dock n rock!
I want one. But $34 wtf? I remember the later ones, the Digimon 6/7 commanded that price. Time value of money I guess.
Damn just solid colours, not the see through ones
Gametraders' pre-order price is $30.
is that an instore price? as their site dont have much of an option to pre order
I'd recommend calling your local store (if you have one).
"hey they are back!" No they aren't
They are. Just peddling to nostalgia.
My old ones had the wires inside mess up and no longer were connected to anything,
Time to rebuy these bad boys
Yeah, nah, $34???
Thanks for letting us know.
no u r
for those interested JB are also selling tamagotchis!
Big w have them for $5 cheaper at $29
there isn't a 'standard' for tamagotchis ?
so can just grab generic ones from Ali
I grabbed one when Target had them in stock at the end of last year. Here's a fun vid I did unboxing/comparing the virtual pet to my real one it's safe to say I have little tolerance to its cries for attention anymore haha, but was a good hit of nostalgia!
I bought one last night. Can't wait.
Just an FYI, each colour device has a different ultimate available to it. Maybe worth looking into before buying :)
how do you find which ultimate is available to it?
Seeing this on FB yesterday actually made my day. This device holds a very special place in my formative years and I'm really stoked everyone else is just as keen. All I want is a Mamemon to shoot cherry bombs at ya'll!
I still have both of mine! Wonder if they're compatible with these new ones. Which versions are these? I remember there was v1, v2, v3 etc. Each had a different digimon to raise.
Have a read here: https://withthewill.net/threads/21651-Digimon-Ver-20th-Engli...
Some key points:
- The device is a modified Japanese Digital Monster Ver.20th (DM20)
- The first major change is that everything is in English
- Most major features of the DM20, including raising two digimon at once and selecting between multiple eggs are still included
- At least the original 5 eggs are included, we don't know which special eggs are on each device
Multiple eggs?? Two digimon at once?I never knew those were features! Game changer right there.
Anyone know where I can still pre-order these?
Second this please :(
Comment removed - wrong thread
Do you reckon these will sell out?
Pre order sold out.
Ah damn, I was so excited for this but I was out of the country and missed it. Anyone have anywhere left that can order it? I called both eb and jb and both said its completely pre-sold out. No gametraders over here in W.A either.
I reckon you will have plenty chance to grab one when they are released in early July.
The eb I called up said they had 20-30 calls in the last few days about them, think they might end up in high demand. Luckily ebgames New Zealand still has them in stock, so I pre-ordered there to a friend and if more come out I`ll cancel it and grab here
JB removed the webpage for the product. Previously it was showing stock back in sometime in July.
For anyone who missed out, Pre-Orders are available from Big W.
Just got an email from JB saying that my brown one is awaiting courier pickup. No mention of the other 3 colours that were ordered together.
Same deal here. Have others experienced the same?
I've received mine from Big W yesterday after preordering weeks ago. Unsure if I want to open it or sell it for profit. Kicking myself for not ordering more, then I could have sold the others and kept one for myself!
