Thread: Behind the Scenes from Bandai's Digimon Twitter

  1. #1

    Behind the Scenes from Bandai's Digimon Twitter

    Since a few different people posted threads remote linking broken images with no explanation what they were, it seemed better to just make a thread, along with adding an explanation.

    Image Thumbnail (custom) Image Thumbnail (custom)

    It's December 1st in Japan and the Bandai Digimon account posted these images of an unfinished/abandoned idea for a Digimon on Twitter.

    The tweet that accompanied the images translated into English...
    December 1st is Digital Broadcasting Day. Come to think of it, when news came out that digital broadcasting was going to be introduced, we thought "when you think of digital, you think of Digimon!", so we were enthusiastic about creating a new Digimon. The idea ended up being scrapped, but... here's a portion of the scrapped ideas ♪

    For some context... December 1st, 2003 was when the digital television transition began in Japan.


    Thanks to garm for the translation.

    The second one looks like a prototype to Dracomon.

    I wouldn't mind seeing these become actual Digimon, particularly the first sketch.
    I'll work to see that justice will be fully served, meow~!

    I wonder if they might be the X-antibody Digimon for Tyrannomon and Tortamon. 2003 is the year of x-antibody.
    Try my quiz on Sporcle. My name is CuddyFox on it. Have fun with the quizzes. I worked hard on them. I made some of them easier. https://www.sporcle.com/playlists/CuddyFox/digimon-time

    I doubt it. The inspiration seems pretty clear.

    Good thing it was scrapped but seems it somewhat reminds me of the appmon designs and in appmon it's okay and doesn't look too goofy but this couldn't work in digimon.

    I don't see why not. We have a living turd Digimon already. As people have pointed out, the second one looks like Dracomon, and the first looks a lot to me like ElDoradimon.

    Well the talking turd digimon is a funny dumb digimon design, there's one digimon literally made out of guns which is dumb cool design.

    To me this is just dumb because in no way you look at it to me is this appealing and by them scrapping it they know it wasn't a good idea it's like making a digimon concept out of the most boring bland thing and the design doesn't look appealing it would be as cool as making stick figure digimon.
