interesting eh, anyone have thoughts on it? (its perfectly ok to post in threads in scans, and its the preferred place for you to talk about the releases)

(ill do an even higher res version in a couple of weeks if the demand is there, with less compression and better quality if its wanted, and yes, i will go into more detail about this thing later on, i just feel it should get commented on without me explaining every little detail first and ruining the coolness of it, and also one with the original japanese text and whatnot when i do the higher res version)

Wow, some of the Flying Digimon definately look coller than Parrotmon. Bandai should really release the Ptersoaur and the Peacock one.

That's really cool. :D I've got the movie book, and it's got a little bit of lineart of these two. Nice to see a little more information on them.

I’m glad they didn’t keep those designs... they don’t look good to my taste, I like a lot more the final designs.

Woah, Taichi and Hikari used to be the same age? Anyways, nice scan, despite the unusual designs.

You can certainly see the inherent digimon-ness to them, although they actually look much edgier in those scans, despite the thick lines giving them a reassuring feel.

Thanks for the exclusive!

I'll explain it in detail later (gotta go do some work now).

But without any actual proof, I am of the opinion that they are a 'proto' taichi and a 'proto' sora. with soras design eventually becoming what we saw in 01, and them taking the old 'protosora' and using its design as a base of hikaris design. Since it appears the proto characters were aged up a few years to where taichi and sora were in 01, and when the age of taichis sister was decided as the age of the proto characters they simply went back to the original girl design and used that as the base of their girl design.

ill give the info in a day or two, at the moment im to stressed from working on the url/site changeover, the 2nd 'new year project' which is almost ready, and dealing with someone who stole this scan and translated it into a differnet language (apparently not understanding even that these ARENT taichi and hikari, just designs that eventually became them), added their own logo next to wtws, and then said it cant be used without wtws permission when he had NONE

forgot to explain it lol


well basically, it was a bonus in the book with the first printing of the 01 boxset (no idea about 2nd printing last year, or the new box from later this year)

it just showed it since it was a booklet all about 01
