Just about time...

Image Thumbnail (custom)

Like 2016 and 2017, there is no planned DigiFes stream, so we will be posting news as we find it out. (Alongwith some news bits we found out just before DigiFes.)

After DigiFes it's likely that a news index post will be made later tonight or earlyish tomorrow.


Any items that need their own thread will get them, but this will have various bits as necessary, with the threads linked to.

Underneath that will be various photos and images.


02 kids and Digimon in Kizuna!
- The big pre-DigiFes news is DigiFes news we got early due to some images being left on a server.
GEM Taichi & Agumon 20th Anniversary Version Announced, Prototype on display- The first less expensive looking GEM in awhile, this time we get Taichi and Agumon based on a classic piece of key art.
DigiFes 2019 Welcome Sign by Kinoko Yamada- Palmon's actress made a very cute sign to welcome everyone to DigiFes!
DigiFes ReArise Present Campaign, Precious GEM Omegamon & Erismon Plush Prizes- This contest has an expensive figure as one prize, and an unbuyable plus as the other.

Precious GEM Beelzebumon & Behemoth Pre-Orders Open- The fanciest and most expensive GEM figure yet.
Digimon Adventure 20th Anniversary Exhibition Being Updated in August- On August 1st various new production materials will be added to the displays.
Digimon Adventure 20th Anniversary Official Tour Announced for November- A one day tour event with various activities will be opening it's ticket lottery soon.


Photos below.

Then a trio of event photos. Our own KoushiroIZZYIzumi has been waiting in line for quite awhile hoping to nab some of the products on sale.
Then we have Megahouse teasing something on display, which is the figure they just revealed.
Then is digimon_81's photo of part of the figure display, featuring Digivolving Spirits.

d0626y0713 brought a ton of Digimon gear, along with printouts to give out of the plan various fans devised to have the light pens light up at specific times/places/colors when Butter-Fly is being sung.

The 4 'mystery' can badges from the product list were indeed the characters from Zero-Two! Thanks to NifaAoki, tuki__sub, and mikuno_ymt for these shots.

I'm so happy to see Zero Two characters getting attention. Even if they get small screen time, this is surely better than what happened on Tri ^^

Are there any particular events or times I should check back to see any potential bigger news? Don't get me wrong, I'm enjoying everything that's come from this so far, but I figure there's probably some point where we can expect the more notable stuff, right?

Is there any way I can get my hands on a Tailmon DigiDigiCushion and the digivice and D-3 metal charms? First time trying to get my hands on merch from an event like this so any help and guidance would be great! Wish I could have been there in person.

Most of these products are 'not' event exclusive.

I believe every item you are looking for will get a normal release shortly.

If you specifically want it 'now', your best bet is finding someone who was there, or trolling around eBay, but expect heavy markups.

Thanks for your reply.

When you say 'normal release', where should I be looking? Where would these items usually be sold? (I'm in the UK if that makes any difference.)

Happy to wait, as I imagine the odds of tracking down someone who managed to obtain extras of what I want is probably rare, but I don't want to risk missing out. I've seen items on Aitai*Kuji that I wish I'd known about but are now sold out.

Thank you for your time; I'm a long-term fan but only recently started being in a position to actually buy merch so I've not got any experience really with buying from Japan other than one Aitai*Kuji order a few years back.

There is nowhere to look yet. Outside of the acrylic cards and a shirt, none have been solicited for sale yet (there may have been one other, but none of the items you wanted.)

Them showing up in the next few weeks (preorder wise) is likely. When that happens we will make news posts where they'll be easily importable.

If they want to celebrate Digimon's past and present, you'd expect them to celebrate something more in its upcoming future than just 02 kids cameos. Maybe Digimon Survive footage.
Otherwise this just rubs off as "Please be a supporting fan and buy overpriced merchandise, and a pamphlet with some staff tweets. 🤗", besides the ace music performances.

While you do have a good point there, I wonder if their hands are sort of tied. Survive is taking them longer than anticipated, so they might not have any more polished off footage of the game in action. As for the upcoming movie, again, not enough might be ready yet to give us. With all of this still being in the pipeline, there isn't much to present besides those trailers for either that we already received.

Official art of the other characters is all I want for now lol. we just have the main three, but it'd be nice to get Saki+Floramon at least, and then find out the partner digimon of the fifth guy from the first trailer.

The live performances would actually feel like more if you went. Sadly they didn't even stream it this year so we missed out on the best part . :(

You're right, it's unfortunate timing. If anything, really, it's good Survive's staff weren't pressured to show something just for an anniversary.

Less understandable is the Kizuna trailer. They really could of (and ought to of) held off releasing it until DigiFes as a big hype moment, instead deciding to do so right before. Way to go.
