FIrst up... we have some new information on something we found out about awhile ago.

We have a much better look at the 2nd wave of 20th V-Pets!

Also, they've revealed what the new colors are: Alphamon, Zubamon, and Omegamon.


The colors in these renders appear slightly different in some cases than what we had seen in the original preliminary images in V-Jump (possibly due to the color balance being wrong in V-Jump or the designs being earlier in the design process.)



It appears there will also be an 'early bird' bonus when orders go up: Shikishi boards with an illustration by Kenji Watanabe.

The price will be 3,780 yen and more details are to come in June (which based on previous information is when pre-orders will also begin.)



Update- A few small updates and clarifications from the new issue of V-Jump.

We get a preview of the exclusive egg from each new color, but they don't clarify if there will be exclusive Digimon or not, just that the eggs will hatch into a 'special Digimon' (and they don't specify what exactly that means.)

The first 9,000 orders will be the ones to receive the shikishi boards for their specific design. They don't say the exact breakdown, but we expect it's 3,000 for each V-Pet.

Pre-orders are confirmed for June as was expected.

Thanks to garm for translations.




In addition, we've found out about two NEW items for the 20th anniversary that are sure to be very extremely popular with fans.

New releases for the 15th Anniversary Digimon Adventure Digivice!

We have a handful of details of these new Digivices for now...

These are new versions of the 15th Digivice, updated for the 20th anniversary of the franchise.

There is a WarGreymon Color, and a MetalGarurumon Color.


The WarGreymon Color is part of a set containing a 'mystery' item.
The digicode etchings will be colored gold.
The screen will have a crest of courage design.
SkullGreymon and BlackWarGreymon are being added.
No price is mentioned.


The MetalGarurumon Color will have silver digicode etchings.
The screen will have a crest of friendship design.
WereGarurumon (Black) and MetalGarurumon (Black) are being added.
The price will be 9,990 yen



More details will be released later in May for both.



Premium Bandai currently has teaser pages for the V-Pets and Digivices:
Digimon V-Pet 20th Anniversary Version (Second Wave)
Digimon Adventure Digivice 15th Anniversary Version- WarGreymon Color
Digimon Adventure Digivice 15th Anniversary Version- MetalGarurumon Color


More information on these soon...



Update- All 5 will be on display at Digimon Adventure: The Real World when it opens on May 3rd, along with the shikishi boards.

I gotta say, the colors of the second wave of V-Pets REALLY looks fantastic on the ones on display. Neither the V-Jump images nor the renders really do them justice.

Is the background on the 15th digivice gonna be black? Won't the pixels be hard to see? Excited either way as I really wanted one but obviously had missed out.

As a Digivice maniac, I have to say, I'm not really feeling these new releases. Yes. they look good, but still way too similar to the previous versions. After the 15th and the CSA, this doesn't make my brain go "I NEED TO GET THIS!"

Unless one of you guys decide they want to offer me one, of course.

I sometimes think that Bandai makes fun of us Digimon fans. I mean, do we really need again the Digivice Ver.15th, whose last version was just released two years ago, and on the top of that, with only two "new" Digimon for each version and a bit of a "new" decorative paraphernalia into it? C'mon, I would prefer a brand-new truly commemorative toy for the 20 Anniversary, or if it's the case, improvements for the Digital Monster Ver.20th which by the way, looks awesome, or more in line with the occasion, the D-Scanner Ver.15th, but nope...a recycled Digivice at skyrocketing prices is better option. Bravo!

So is it safe to assume that Alphamon will be raisable on the 20th anniversary v-pets? I wish they would tell us what they are doing with the color-exclusive Agumon and Gabumon though. If they are both available I might go for one!

Oh, come on. They have GOT to be taking the piss out of collectors. The 20th Anniversary Version ALREADY? We're barely done with the 15th! Can they be any more blatant in exploiting the Digimon fans? Seriously? ANOTHER LCD DIGIVICE RELEASE!? (-.-) Urgh... I can't even be bothered to buy them anymore because they're probably going to make another one in a couple of months in anime colors or something, celebrating the 20.1th Anniversary. Mark my words. (-.-)


Honestly, while I'm in absolutely no position to tell you guys what to do with your money, I highly suggest you not buy these. You're just enabling Bandai.

We're supporting our fandom...if these don't sell, they may not make more. The Digimon fandom is rather niche.

I agree..but on the good side, those who missed out on the Ver. 15th has a 2nd chance and its more than a Pleasant surprise for them! I hope they' ll remake the anime version too. If only the price was the same as the vpets at 3700 Yen...thatll be soo dope.

Not even a 20th version, it's going to be basically almost the same as the 15th, with a few new additions (I don't really expect quite a lot, unless this one also covers tri., which I highly doubt) and a slightly different cover...I want to support Digimon, but I agree with you. I honestly think that buying, for example, products like the DM ver.20th or Hacker's Memory instead, is healthier for the franchise long-term speaking.

Right behind you :)
I'm not going to lie. Being a collector, to see a slightly revamped/improved Digivice leaves a slightly sour taste in my mouth. The "special' third versions like the anime ver and the Paildramon coloured D-3 was justifiable in my books but this, not so much. I'm all for re-releasing the 15th Anniversary ones for those who missed out.

I do hope that the 3 new V-pets do not have Digimon exclusive to these three which would not be obtainable in the brown and grey one. Or worse, different colour exclusives.

Of the wave 2 v-pets I think the Alphamon version has the nicest colour scheme, at least from the renderings. Zubamon's looks much better in the photo but I'm not really feeling the Omegamon version. I already have an Original Red Brown on order so I don't care enough to get any of these :p

The not-really-new Adventure Digivices look nice, and the bonus dark evolutions are are neat bonus. I love the crest design in the background. But I already paid through the nose for the Anime Original colour version so, at least for now, I don't feel like I need another one.

Is it just me, or the Omegamon Ver. Looks like it can glow in the dark? I was expecting it will look Solid Silver like the one from the picture (which reminds me of Gundams).

C'mon, I would prefer a brand-new truly commemorative toy for the 20 Anniversary,
...like the Digital Monster Ver.20th?
What's funny was... in that interview with the 20th V-Pet they said they'd be bringing back some popular products for the 20th and everyone was super happy.


The 15th Anniversary Digivice was one of the most popular Digimon products among fans. People have been asking for it to come back since the moment they stopped taking orders.
