We first found out about it awhile ago, but it's time for a bunch of details for The Digital Monster 25th Anniversary Exhibition (Digimon Museum)


The event is described as:
Digital Monster, which was born as an LCD toy in 1997, has since spread to various products and content that transcend genres such as games, animations, cards, and has been supported by fans around the world.
In July 2022, which marks the 25th anniversary of its beginning, we will hold an exhibition event where you can enjoy the charm of the world of Digital Monster, while looking back on illustrations.
We look forward to seeing you at the Digimon Museum, an event where you can enjoy the world and charm of Digimon, whether you are a fan who has supposed it from the beginning to now, or fans who have come to be fond of it with the TV anime Digimon Ghost Game.

for Chapter 2: The World of Digital Monsters, what I find most interesting is the inclusion of HiAndromon in the Crack Team but also the exclusion of Apollomon Whispered from the Big Death Stars (a shame as I like Whispered and would like to see it exist beyond Xros Wars).
Armamon and Omega Armamon Burst Mode are also missing from the Legend Arms.

I find it interesting that Monzaemon in the Chapter 4: 25th Anniversary Memorial Corner art is holding my favorite Digital Monster color which is exclusive to the 20th release. Transparent blue with the orange gate is just awesome.

I really want one of the Dramatic Acrylic Dimension pop up pieces. They all look awesome! I do wish Mamemon got one but I can't really think of a cool particle effect for it other than generic punches and explosions anyways and I like all of the version 1 digimon a ton anyways

Death Generals and Big Death-Stars are two different groups. Apollomon Whispered is a Death General, not a Big Death-Star.

Of course Death Generals in Xros Wars is the in-universe version of Big Death-Stars but so far we don't have the confirmation of the two groups being the same. Or maybe because Apollomon was there, DarkKnightmon formed a new group with a new name for the Big Death-Stars + Apollomon. (This is a theory)

Huh, looks almost like they left a slot for Dominimon before redacting him.

A lot of the anniversary art is great. The Metal Greymon one is so good. The acrylic stands are very charming, as well.

I am interested in that digimon groups/organization relationship charts, and hoping we get to see a complete and higher-resolution version uploaded or photographed and posted soon. Also interested in the V-Jump's Digimon 2022 Guide Book. Hope someone scans it.

I'm assuming the new v-pet product to be unveiled here is the Digital Monsters 25th Anniversary Vital Bracelet.

The next week will be a good one for Digimon fans.

Interesting, in the Digimon Profile were it talks about the Crack Team, HiAndromon was never listed as a Digimon part of that group... It makes me think that when the Crack Team upgraded an Andromon into HiAndromon resulting it to become self-aware, it might've disbanded from the group as it realized what their intentions are.
