Hello,

Used to be a huge Digimon fan as a child, my counter to all things Pokemon (mostly because I didn't have the channel broadcasting the show).

Recently I got back into the idea of buying Digivices. They were never available in my country and as a child I didn't have the means to buy online.

I managed to secure the Digivice Ver.Complete at about 70$ above the original price, not including shipping, for two reasons. One, I jumped late on the train. Two, location... P-bandai doesn't ship to my country, Israel.

Now my goal as a starting collector is to obtain a brand new D-Ark Digivice, preferably silver gold, but I'm not mad enough to buy those at Ebay's prices nor do I believe anyone sells a new one. Hence, my aim is to wait, however long, for Bandai to rerelease the D-Ark Digivices.

What I basically hope someone here could help me with is finding a site (maybe one that also doesn't overcharge?) that possibly ship to my region and update early when new Digivices are out, you know... before they're getting treated as PS5 or RTX 3080 and are out of stock.

Thank you either way,
Yotaman

Humulos had some good links.

The only way to avoid scalpers is to buy new which is impossible for most devices at this point.

Digimon resellers are the most toxic part of the community in my option. eBay is a really good spot to shop around. Every now and then you get a great deal. 2 years ago I was able to get D-Scanner Ver 2 (Black) and Ver 3 (Red) for under $90

this website has a really good supply but the prices are sometimes crazy, and never really good. But they are on par with eBay which I know you wanted to avoid. Just giving options though.

I'll see the site. By the way, what was the condition of the D-Scanners?

The Black Ver.2 was new in the original case. The red Ver.3 was almost like new. One chip on the paint on the gold circle around the screen.

I got extremely lucky. I was in no rush either. I’ve been wanting Japan D-Scanners for years under $100. Next is for me to get a Burst mode Digivice from Data Squad once the price is right. There will always be good deals but it takes a lot of waiting.

Japan Yahoo auctions are really good too. I got a legit gold d ark from there. Can’t remember price. It’s been years now

Make sure you aren’t buying knockoffs unless you want knockoffs (don’t see why)

Definitely won't buy knockoffs!

Right now I'll be sitting on the fence for either good deals on old Digivices, new releases of old Digivices or winning the lottery, since unless I do I won't be overpaying.

I'm quite curious where they intend to run with the reboot of Adventure, how many Digivices they'll reintroduce, though after checking reviews I won't be buying the Digimon Adventure : Digivice.

Good luck with finding a decent Burst mode Digivice. I know there is an English version, which sounds more appealing to me, but hope you get whichever you fancy or both.
