Someone in Hong Kong slipped up and gave us some news early!

Premium Bandai Hong Kong put up a standby page for a new wave of 20th Anniversary Pendulums!


The only details we have at the moment are they are listed as Dukemon and Beelzebumon colors, and are themed after both Digimon colorwise, including a background for the LCD screen.

Both Dukemon and Beelzebumon appear in the original 20th Anniversary Pendulums, so it'll be interesting to see what changes are made to these.


Pre-orders look like they will go up in June.


We are likely to get info about these soon.


Thanks to DigiSoul and YeahRightSure for the heads up.


Update- From the new V-Jump...

No real info, minus the hinting at a change to the Digimon within, which most of us guessed would happen.



Update- Premium Bandai has put up a standby page for it.

Bandai also tweeted out some promotion for the new Pendulums. They ask us to wait until late June for additional details.



In addition...

When pulling up the standby page on a mobile device, it pulls up an additional asset showing a release/shipping date of December.



More details soon.

These look great. Depending on what Digimon are in it, I might pick one of these up. Leaning more towards the Dukemon version because it's red.

Just guessing here...



But based on what we saw with the 20th V-Pets, and the overview of the Pendulums that we have...

Dukemon will be Silver Blue, Beelzebumon will be Silver Black.


And last guess would be that something will be changed in each one, likely regarding the special eggs (it doesn't appear that Crimson Mode or Blast Mode are in the original 20th Pendulums for example... unless they've been hiding those for a surprise.)

Nice!
I wonder if they will include definitive content that make the previous 2 version less desirable like what they did to vpet 20th

Dude. If they introduce a new Beelzebumon-Gallantmon fusion... that'd be awesome.

If they have the same lineup, I'd pick beelzebumon ed. for sure! But probably it won't be like that and I will have to buy both. I hate my life.
It will be worth to sleep in the couch for a few days...

Ooh, nice. I'll probably go for one of these if it turns out you need a second V-Pet to unlock the Vobomon or Meicoomon eggs in the first ones (I hadn't thought of this when I made my pre-order).

I'm already getting Silver Black, so I should probably get the Dukemon one, buuuuuut I defintely like Beelzemon BM infinitely more than Dukemon CM...

Those ones look super nice!! I'm definitely picking Beelzebumon's, while both look super cool! Here hoping for BeelStarmon :3

Ohhh yeah, BeelStarrmon Blast Mode and Mediæval Dukemon Crimson Mode would be good ideas too. Or maybe steeds for them like Grani and Behemoth.

Yes! So glad I risked it and waited for these and didn't miss out on the first versions for no reason!

A couple different digimon aint worth such high premium prices. I probably would of just bought wave 2 v-pets too, had i known there would be WarGrey and MetalGaruru on them. Can't wait to figure out what to do. If it's silly again, i'll just sell my stuff and be done with bandai.

I mean, they're 36 bucks each. Bandai could have likely gotten away with 60 to 100 based on prior modern Digimon LCD releases. (The Anniversary V-Pet and Pendulums feels like Bandai purposely went lower on the price than you'd expect.)


I think people tend to get obsessed with getting 'everything.' The 20th Pendulums look like they are going to be great, and without knowing the details on content, I gotta say... these new ones look amazing.

If these are roughly the same, just with a few Digimon tweaked, there is no real reason anyone who bought the first wave has to get them. If the new Digimon are important to you, or you like the design, it'd make sense.



As an example, I own Masterpiece Optimus Prime (the original MP1 Convoy release.) They've re-released it a number of times with extras, improvements, etc. and even redone him from scratch (MP10) in a seemingly improved figure.

I've never felt the need to get another one past my original one. At some point I may, but I like the one I have.



Getting both of the new Pendulums, on top of intermediary fees... probably around 100 or so. We'll soon have an idea what these have, and everyone can figure out if they're worth that to them or not.

So, yes, in hindsight I should have seen this coming. But I didn’t and I preordered both of the upcoming Pendulums. And given that, while I like the monster raising aspect, I don’t find it entertaining enought to shell out another $100 for both (roughly speaking, counting international shipping costs) even if they do both look exceptional. Which makes these two a “skip” for me, unfortunately.

Yeah, that would make sense.

I've already got both the Wave 1 Pendulums preordered so, even though I do really like the colours on these, it's a "maybe" for me. If one of the special eggs has a Digimon I like I'll probably get that one. If there's no real incentive to getting either of these, then I might skip it.

On a somewhat related note, I'm half expecting Omegamon Merciful Mode to show up in one of these. But given that he's not that visually different from Omegamon or Alter-S, I wonder how they would actually do that in sprite form.

Saw this last night and I'm excited. I already ordered the wave 1 pens but I'll definitely get these too.

I do hope they've learned and the paint won't chip off.

People... like Beelstarmon? I kind of assumed she'd be the Digimon equivilant of Transformers' Kiss Players: something fans are embarassed by and try not to discuss.
