300 Yen Digivice & Crest Gashapon Toys

December 1st, 2015. Bandai of Japan has put out the formal launch announcement for its next line of gashapon toys, which will include a set of memorial goods in commemoration of Digimon Adventure. The Digivice collection will include nine different colors, based on the original Digivice's base colors and the eight variations used during the Chosen Children's super evolutions. There will also be a set of eleven tags with crests, comprising the original eight plus the crests of Destiny, Miracles, and Kindness. (These crests are derived from Digimon Adventure 02 and the two-part movie Hurricane Touchdown!! / Supreme Evolution!! The Golden Digimentals.) The Digivice and crest collection is currently available at select machines, and each capsule costs 300 yen. (Approximately $2.50 at the current exchange rate.)

Gashapon toys are a popular market for collectible toys in Japan, distributed randomly through blind capsule machines. While the individual capsules can range from 100 to 300 yen out of the machine, due to the difficulty of acquiring a complete set, select items in each collection can sell for much more on secondary markets. The previous set of Adventure gashapon toys was briefly previewed by actress Mimori Suzuko during the November 20th promotional livestream for Digimon Adventure tri.

12/06/15 Update: The new gashapon toys have been added to Bandai's online catalog.

    3. Since they're gashapon toys, the only way to get them from stores in Japan would be from the actual machines, or from collectors that resell them. These are the listings I've seen for them online: http://auctions.search.yahoo.co.jp/search?auccat=&tab_ex=commerce&ei=utf-8&aq=0&oq=%E7%B4%8B%E7%AB%A0&sc_i=&p=%E7%B4%8B%E7%AB%A0+%E3%83%87%E3%82%B8%E3%83%A2%E3%83%B3
