Welp, time to get our hopes up again!

Premium Bandai has put up a survey for overseas (not in Japan) customers.


The questions seem tailored to figure out if it's worth their effort to sell products directly from the Premium Bandai store to fans overseas, along with how we find out about Premium Bandai products (since they aren't tailored or aimed at those of us outside of Japan.)


Digimon is one of the brands that is selectable in the survey for brands people are aware.


The Premium Bandai store is one of the signature places where new Digimon products, many exclusive, are made available. Ordering from them is often expensive, not just because of the exclusivity of the items, but because you have to shop via an intermediary which costs extra for various reasons.


Premium Bandai USA opened half a year ago as an offshoot of their Hong Kong offices, but items there have been minimal overall, with nothing Digimon yet.


No guarantees anything will come of it, but best to let them know we are interested!

I filled it in, ticked quite a few franchises that i like including Digimon. I don't actually have a local store that sells those kinds of merchandise so i had to put not applicable.

Hopefully something may come from this.

I filled it in as well. While there's no guarantee anything will come of it-it doesn't hurt to try!

I replied to it. Hopefully it'll help them I guess.

Wouldn't Naruto fall under then Boruto name now? Unless you're talking about characters from Naruto or as they were in Naruto.

Hopefully it shows them that increasing the amount of items available will be in their best interest. Not that I necessarily mind buying through an intermediary, but whenever I go to the PB website it's like "WANNA CHECK OUT OUR ENGLISH STORE" and there's just nothing there.

Bandai makes quite a bit of Pokemon merchandise.

Over the years Digimon and Pokemon have been in many of the same figure lines in fact: D-Arts, Figuarts, GEM, and so forth.
