We found out about it a bit ago, and it's just a few days from the newest Digimon pop-up shop!
This is the 10th full Limited Base pop-up shop for Digimon (a few smaller ones, and other brands have been done also of course.)
The newest pop-up shop will be at the Limited Base Pop-Up Theater at:
the Shibuya Parco (on the 6th floor)
the Sendai Parco Main Building (on the 5th floor)
The theme and key art are based on Digimon Adventure:.
The shops will run Friday, July 10 thru Wednesday, September 2nd.
Included at the shop will be a small theater that will show the third memorial short. More details on that will be below the product info.
A few additional details:
Only a few items are being announced now. We expect there has been stocking/production issues related to coronavirus, which has thrown off the schedule at the Pop-Up Theater in general.
They plan to announce more products later. We wouldn't be surprised to see many returning items from 'Digimon Shop 2' (the Kizuna one), as at one point it was in 4 different Limited Base conditions, in the midst of shutdowns, etc., making it easier to get those items (they haven't confirmed they will do that, but it feels reasonably likely based on the random shutdowns and odd hours Limited Base has had due to coronavirus.) Update- This is in fact what they did, adding a stack of the Kizuna shop items a few hours later. They've been added below.
Also, Shibuya will have a second theme in the 'product corner'. We expect this is the same expanded corner the Angemon figure was on display in during a recent non Digimon LB Pop-Up Theater Shop. The theme is Miraculous Ladybug (to celebrate a new series airing in Japan I think?) It appears no Miraculous Ladybug short will be there, with purchases going towards seeing the Digimon short. (This is likely another side effect of coronavirus, as recent shops had schedules moved around.)
First up, the announced items which will be exclusive to Limited Base.
First up is a clear file that costs 400 yen.
Next up is can badges, featuring each character duo, their focus color, and their names in English. There are 8 of these, they are 400 yen each, and they are blindpacked.
Acrylic keychains of the key art. Each of 8 keychains features a character duo. Each is 900 yen.
The memorial magnets return for a third series. Each of these features a decently known scene or piece of art. Series 1 had just Adventure and 02, Series 2 added Tamers, and now Series 3 adds Frontier. There are 10 total, they are 700 yen each, and they are blindpacked.
These embroidery patches will be a neat way to add some Digimon theming to outfits or bags, etc. Series 1 only had Adventure patdhes, this time there are new Adventure patches, along with 02 and Tamers themed ones. There are 8 types that are blindpacked for 800 yen each.
These hairbands are themed after Patamon and Tailmon with some extra flair in a few places. Each is 2,200 yen.
The last exclusive item is LaQ character puzzle toys (LaQ is a Japanese brand of building blocks/pieces that snap together.) Agumon and Gabumon will come together in a set for 2,000 yen.
The last item isn't exclusive, but it is an early release of something new in a popular series we haven't seen for awhile...
A new series of Acrylic Cards! It isn't clear at the moment if this will be branded as series 6, or have no number branding.
Like previous releases, these can stay as cards or have pieces pop off and combine into an acrylic stand. This set skips the assortment method of previous sets and looks to be all Digimon Adventure: based. Each is 600 yen (and oddly it says they are open package instead of blindpacked, which may be a typo?)
The 25 cards this time are: Taichi, Yamato, Koushiro, Sora, Jou, Mimi, Takeru, Hikari, Agumon, Gabumon, AtlurKabuterimon, Pyocomon, Ikakkumon, Palmon, Tokomon, Angewomon, Omegamon, MetalGreymon, WereGarurumon, and the Digivice:
Update- They've also listed a number of items from the Kizuna shop. We've pasted in our prior descriptions of them.
The 2nd wave of small plushies and larger cushions. I believe this is just them clarifying they have them as the pre-sale period for a few other shops are over now.
This pouch is themed after the familiar visual of the traincar from Adventure. It costs 2,200 yen.
This clear plastic water bottle has a design with all the crests on it, along with a digital motif near the bottom. It costs 1,500 yen.
These 2 pouches feature the crests of Courage and Hope and are labled as 'drip proof'. Each is 3,200 yen.
Suitcase belts, to put around you luggage. This is available in 2 themes and costs 2,500 yen each.
These coasters are labeled as being water absorbent and are themed after the backsides of Patamon and Tailmon. Each is 1,000 yen.
It's a Patamon themed backpack! It costs 5,500 yen.
This lunch bag is themed after a brown sack lunch and features silhouettes and name printings of the Digimon from Digimon Adventure. It also helps keep the items inside cool. It costs 2,500 yen.
New otedama! The small bean bag characters return, this time designed after the chosen children as they appear in Kizuna, along with the 02 partners!! These are 650 yen each and come in 12 types.
Glittering (holographic?) can badges featuring the new art of the characters as they appear in Kizuna from the shop key art. These are 400 yen each. There are 12 of these and they are blindpacked.
A clear file featuring the Kizuna shop key art is 400 yen.
These (second set of) memorial magnets feature a number of notable scenes from Adventure, 02, and Tamers. They are 700 yen each, there are 20 of them, and they are blindpacked.
Update- More items have been announced, plus a card game promo pack. Details can be found here.
On top of that there is the Memorial Short screenings... this time they will be showing the third short, Medical Student, Jou Kido!
The short is about Jou, who is now a 5th year of medical student, and Gomamon decides to ask Agumon for help...
As for how to see it...
LB Pop-Up Theater will offer point cards. 1000 yen spent at the store gets you one point, and you can trade in 5 points to enter the small theater.
They note they expect it to be super crowded the first few days. Shop staff will make sure people are lined up properly, but they again expect it to be packed so you might not even be able to shop.
When there are free screenings the start time will be announced on the Pop-Up Theater Twitter.
We'll add more translated shop details as we can.
You'll want to contact an intermediary to get these items sent to you. WtW is not affiliated with any, but here are a selection of intermediaries that have worked well for various WtWers and their friends in the past:
Be aware many intermediaries do not carry items from specialty shops since they can't be ordered online. You will need to ask them and explain what you want very carefully (perhaps with a photo.) Some intermediaries will potentially still not be willing to get the item (or may only be willing to at great cost.) Realistically to get anything from the pop-up shop at a reasonable cost you'll have to find someone who is actually going and ask them to pick you up something.
Some of the intermediaries have a full store front and may have the item listed, so you may want to check that first.
