Hello I noticed there wasn't a beyblade general and so here one is! Any combos you like? Any combos you hate?Heading to any tournaments soon? Looking for beys but don't want them from ebay?beysandbricks.com and malloftoys.com are both pretty reputable!
>>10050693>Looking for beys but don't want them from ebay?beysandbricks.com and malloftoys.com are both pretty reputable!Its been common knowledge for a whie that Beysandbricks have been selling midfakes and labeling them as takara , going to order some of the seperate parts soon to see if their authentic and the launchers for mfb
>>10050693Are Beyblade competitions still a thing? I know they use to be but my knowledge isn’t very complete?
Where do I get started this?I always ignored the cartoon and this stuff. I thought it looked kind of gimmicky but watching some videos it seems there is a lot of customization and stuff to it.I kinda want to introduce it to some younger kids in my family too, they are at that age where they are watching kids robot and dinosaur series on youtube kidsYoutube kids is hot trash, I'd rather they check this stuff out.
I got drunk and bought the hello kitty beyblade.
>>10052341BaB have gotten slightly better about the Midfake MF era beys. They still feel like a scam site, the L/R launcher I bought from them broke after a week of mild use. I haven't used them for any Burst era beys, because I'm not the biggest fan of them, but I've heard they are legit with those.>>10052721There aren't as many as there used to be, but WBO still hosts tournaments. >>10053022I'd recommend just grabbing some cheap hasbro burst beys that come with a stadium. If they like those then go from there. The pro series is not compatible with the other hasbro releases so, pick one and stick with it.
why did they never give you a different bit beast sticker for the second bit chip?
>>10053093The forge disks and performance tips are compatible which was great to find out once I got harmony Pegasus
I've been on an MFB kick, lately, and I have been using that energy to try and continue my plan of recreating the Bladebreakers' beys in MFB form. Since Garudas and Byakko were never released, I had to cancel Driger, and swap Garudas with Phoenic. Draciel's pretty much complete, though.
I recently started getting back into Beyblades, can someone explain why there's such a HUGE difference in quality between Hasbro and TT beys? The Hasbro ones feel like cheap Chinese knockoffs in comparison, they're all hollowed out (to the point of being, like, half the weight of TT beys) and lacking any form of gimmicks/moving parts or completely ignoring the limit break systems. Why would anyone ever buy Hasbro beyblades over TT beys?
>>10057760It's literally Hasbro being scumbags.
>>10057760>why there's such a HUGE difference in quality between Hasbro and TT beysTo be able to sell them for significantly cheaper, Hasbro beys are half the price of TT beys>Why would anyone ever buy Hasbro beyblades over TT beys?The primary buyer of Hasbro beys are American parents, and they're very price sensitiveIt's a difference of philosophy between Americans and JapaneseAmerican parents would rather get 10 shitty, disposable toys for their kid instead of 1 good one
Did any of you catch the CEOtaku Beyblade tournament live? I tuned in for Guilty Gear but somehow totally missed this until a commentator offhandedly mentioned it.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OvzxF2UwnrU
both version of Driger V2
is the pro series is compatible with the TT
>>10062142Yes. The only difference is that the plastic is a bit softer than the Takara TOMY stuff. Don't know if they ever fixed that.
Why is walmart selling the Rapidity knockoff beys (at least online)Do they not check what people are selling through their site
>>10063189No, its like ebay or amazon and they have no reason to give a shit.Its a marketplace.
My newest bey with v gear
I wish the Gen 1 remakes were good. But stock Dragoon wasn't originally competitive either. What do you think Beyblade Gen 4 will look like? I think it starts fall 2023. I liked Burst.>>10063340Nice.
Is there a good way to differentiate tt and hasbro beys when you see them? Some sellers don't list origin.
S gear or d gear for nexus
Nexus s or over?
I'm still waiting for the burst gen to end. I'm ready for a new gimmick. Its been nearly 8 years already. This is easily the longest gen. I never liked the burst gimmick, and I never will. Also I think the art style of the burst bey blades is overly designed and ugly looking.
>>10065042It's time for all metal blades that require a faceshield and padded clothing to use
Just received Lucifer The End in the mail today. It's fun to play around with all its moving parts. I've heard people say it also doubles as a pretty capable attack type if you switch out the driver, but I feel it's better suited for pure defence?
>>10055881Was waiting for someone to ask, but better late than never.
when I was a kid I got 2 beywheels when they were new, but both of the launchers broke in the first week so I had to roll them with my handsI am thinking about getting another one, but I don't want to roll it with my hands againis it common for beywheels launchers to break? did they fix this issue in later launchers? was I just unlucky?I don't think it was user error because I always followed instructions perfectly and the launchers always felt like they couldn't support the weight of the beywheel
>>10069447Never had mine break. Then again, I barely used it.
Alright. After years of mild curiosity I have finally decided to take the plunge. I bought a big lot of used TT beyblades.
>>10061137I knew there are lots of fan run Beyblade tournaments but I'd never thought I'd see the day that I'd be watching a video of the Top 8 of a Beyblade tournament played at a fighting game event with FGC color commentary

What do you think of Vanish Valkyrie1 over wedge 10
>>10050693Burst is so much fun bros. Longinus is such a fucking beast.
My god, why are modern Beyblades ugly as sin? The overuse of transparent plastic is incredibly gaudy, and they all look like they have the texture of chewed up gum. I guess this garbage looks fucking amazing to little children, but I assume anyone with taste agrees that they look like crap. Call me a nostalgiafag I guess, because the only good looking modern Beyblades are the few that are remakes of the original generation.
>>10074981I agree to an extent. Xiphoid Xcalibur is absolutely an exception, however. This thing is fucking sexy.
>>10075016It looks like a garbled mess of transparent plastic, vaguely shaped like a bladed spinning top, just like every other modern beyblade. This shit is awful.
>>10075032Did you make that image, yourself?
>>10075118Nah, got it from AliExpress.
do metal fusion tournaments still happen?I'm addicted to the sound of metal clashing, metal fusion beys are mostly what I own, and the 3 burst beys I have burst way too easily and don't sound good enough for mepic related are my burst beyblades
>>10066058>It's time for all metal bladeshttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=30LeYM7JjkEHas anyone start a fire with those fake old metal sparking Beyblades.>>10076175>I'm addicted to the sound of metal clashingThe clanking is very asmr and they clash hard. Battling my old MFBS are fun. Stamina battles are a pain however.
>>10074981It's not an issue with transparent plastic or bright colors, it's an issue of visual noise. Highly detailed sculpts with lots of different colors become visually incomprehensible unless you really look closely. The ones that work are the ones that tend to highlight a few details and use relatively limited colors. Older beyblades had simpler designs and fewer colors and as such those designs and colors stood out instead of blending together. It's kind of like comparing any final fantasy character to the ones from team fortress 2. Those TF2 characters are instantly recognizable whereas a lot of the final fantasy ones are kind of just a mess.
I've been getting back into beyblade! Does Anyone have recommendations for which beys or boosters to pick up? I've been looking at xiphoid Excalibur, vanish fafnir, guilty longinus and vol 27.

My new beyblade
>>10081722Looks good, anon. Is that TT or Hasbro? I genuinely can't tell.
i havent kept up with beyblade since metal fusion. what happened? why is it all over designed garbage now?
>>10082181Careful, according to the zoomers, burst is the best beyblade has ever been, even though the gimmick has been dull after the first year and we're going on the 8th year of burst
>>10078369the 2d battles had so much more energy than any of the 3d animations
Hey kid, wanna see my secret stash?
>>10082123Hasbro with TT armor and disk
>>10082211>burst is the best beyblade has ever been>we're going on the 8th year of burstJust proved that it it. if Burst was a failure like you want it to be. It would've been canned by now. Every subsequent series has done better then plastic. It's weird how people think this series was a fad that never left the early 2000s. It grosses more then The Legend of Zelda.>>10082232record some battles for the thread.>>10082215>the 2d battles had so much more energy than any of the 3d animationsThere has been good 3d animations. I should make clips of them.
>>10082988Its only success is being extremely cheap to produce toys.The visual designs are objectively bad. The gimmick is objectively bad. But since most parts are made of only one or two peices, they're very cheap to mass produce. A large portion of the community is bored with this theme. But, because they're cheap and the target audience is little kids who don't care, they're just going to keep running with this theme until Takara moves on to something else. Luckily they announced the manga will end in 2023. So hopefully the gen will end a year afterthat.
metal fusion was the best thing happen to beyblade
>>10083007>Its only success is being extremely cheap to produce toys.it's a toy franchise and they will still cancel a line early (Zero G) when it doesn't sell.>large portion of the community is bored with this themeyeah it ran for 8 years. I want to see what's next for Beyblade.>but since most parts are made of only one or two pieces,like other gens they grew more complex over time and even had electronic elements.>Luckily they announced the manga will be endingthe anime and manga has already ended and there might be releases to fall 2023. And it's been rumored Hasbro will make another western "anime" for their QuadStrike system.>>10083009I do like MFB a lot.
>>10082244You're gonna need to give it a TT driver, too.
The final Belial Evolution Gear is finally out. Thoughts on the new Perfect Gear for Divine Belial?
>>10083277I want to keep it as close as it look in the anime.
high mode or low mode
>>10084489Low mode. High mode is just disk backwards compatibility. It raises your center of gravity, lowering stability, and creates a big gap. It's a detriment 99% of the time.
>>10084626High mode only work with Belial with his perfect gears
Whats a good, balanced stadium? I see a lot on the market and some are pretty absurdly priced for what they are. Trying to find something that doesn't favor one type over another while not breaking the bank.
>>10085517Just get one of these, its the og stadium, and is designed to not favor any one type, but a good player can use this stadium to their advantage by leaning their blade's build to an extreme, rather than a blend, super stamina, super defence, or super attack, are all strong on this stadium, but blades that try to balance two or more types won't be as strong.
do any sneak peaks or concept arts exist of what the next gen blades will look like or how they will function?
Try this one, its 2 foot across.https://www.amazon.com/Beyblade-Large-Stadium-Arena-Battling/dp/B07GB2KLKZ/ref=sr_1_13?keywords=beyblade+stadium&qid=1665365276&qu=eyJxc2MiOiI1Ljk4IiwicXNhIjoiNS41OCIsInFzcCI6IjQuOTQifQ%3D%3D&sprefix=beyblade+%2Caps%2C154&sr=8-13&ufe=app_do%3Aamzn1.fos.006c50ae-5d4c-4777-9bc0-4513d670b6bc
>>10085681Whats the name/code for it?
>>10086397bb-10 This design was around since the plastic gen, if you just search amazon or ebay for beyblade stadium, this is one of the top results, they're usually around 20$ Its been recolored a thousand times. If you get the clear version, you can paint the back of it any color you want using lexan paints for rc cars.
Vanish Valkyrie Over Wedge'-10I'll be getting my high extend+' soon
>>10088191I messed up the armor
https://youtu.be/i5tvodFMfSE?t=519They need to fully release the dub OST, not just the songs. MFB and Burst's soundtrack too.The beginning of this is stuck in my head, it needs a full version. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eHaMBp4Y00w
>>10089072The og soundtrack has no right to be such a banger. It really sets g1 apart from the others, it makes it give it the save vibe as like a skateboard anime would, with the punk rock and atmosphere. Sure they cut some of the story stuff for the dub version, but the soundtrack is easily better than anything that came out after. Its clear that the first season was a passion project, not just a toy commecial like the later seasons and generations after it.
>>10089073It really is a good soundtrack>the punk rock and atmosphereIf they ever make the movie, they should go for that vibe.>Sure they cut some of the story stuff for the dubThey created entire characters (Dizzy, AJ Topper, Brad Best etc.)It blew my mind that they were invented for the western dub.>not just a toy commercial like the later seasons and generations after it.G1 is pretty good but I think you're not giving. G2 and G3 enough credit. MFB has hype themes, I want these all fully released https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oDqyOhDKfXshttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3i_PdlWoVa8https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sYQDMhc9SZgI'm just hyper-fixated on season 1 right now. I flip between all Gens.Waiting for Gen4
>>10088191>>10088833Pretty sure you can't put a right-spin core on a left-spin blade.
>>10089096I've watched them all, and the later gens are good, but there's just something about the first season of g1 that I can just watch it over and over. The later gens, I just don't feel like watching then again.
>>10089097This is the one stance l will always use to defend plastic gen.You coukd reverse the spin of literally any beyblade you wanted, opening up literally double the possible combinations of your build a d game strategy, which is straight up missing in MF and Burst.
>>10089100>The later gens, I just don't feel like watching then again.Fair, I mostly just mostly watch clips of my favorite moments/battles. Watching an entire 51 episode season is a lot.>>10089107That is cool, its funny how every gen after makes a big deal of left rotation.Did anything other then Dragoon have a Left spin-gear? >>10089106A thing later Gens do better is naming-conventions for Beyblade parts/combinations. Storm Pegasis 105RF: (10.5mm, Rubber Flat).I remember most of the part names for MFB. It's a crapshoot for Gen 1 The left is Dragoon Storm:Storm Attacker (AR) 8 Heavy (WD), Neo Left Spin Gear(SG), Storm Grip Base( BB).
>>10089113>Did anything other then Dragoon have a Left spin-gear? There were actually a lot, but its hard to name which without just looking up a list somewhere. >its funny how every gen after makes a big deal of left rotation.This is because in competitive plastic gen, people were building something called a zombie build. They would use as many circular and free spinning parts to reduce their friction as much as possible, and would intentionally weak launch, so with contact, they would steal spin from their opponant and even reverse their spin on some occasions. Also many attack rings were much more devistating, even down right dangerous, if spun in one direction over another. And you can see how this influanced the later generations. You'll notice that none of MF and none of Burst have any prominant leading edges on their attack rings. They have some texture and have designs that imply agression, but its all very smoothed over, this is to make the contact as uneventful as possible, so the beyblades don't go flying out of the arena. Even moreso now since all modern burst arenas are now fully enclosed to catch any stray parts. If you look at plastic gen beyblades, they were out for blood. Attack types had radically jagged designs with tips intended to strike as hard as they could, to catch something on the opponant, and kick them out of the arena with force. Mut modern attack types all have this swooped design that doesn't hit as much as it tries to get under and scoop the opponant up and into the air, but with a minimized leading edge, as to not cause the violent imacts that send beyblades across the room.
>>10089125>This is because in competitive plastic genI mostly mean in the anime. I know about zombies/"spin steal". I don't think they animated left-spin Dragoon, circling the stadium clockwise vs counter clockwise circling, right-spin Beyblades.>>10089125>You'll notice that none of MF and none of Burst have any prominent leading edges on their attack rings. >>10089128I've definitely noticed. I think I posted about this last thread. Look at Blitz Unicorno, imagine if that spun counter-clockwise. It's already prone to breakage. It would be a death saw. >>10089125>designs with tips intended to strike as hard as they could>thinks of Gaia Dragoon and Dranzer MFThat's why Gen 1 Burst remakes suck. They just die instantly, from Burst or Stamina.>>10089125>swooped design that doesn't hit as much as it tries to get under and scoopUpper Attack is pretty cool. Maybe glancing blows/parries are better, knock the opponent back with less strain/energy loss.
>>10089469Isn't that illegal?
My Vanish Valkyrie got an upgrade >>10089581Yes
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QXENkCxh-D8The Engine-Gear was cool, no batteries required.If they announced G-Series Burst remakes, would they all release with electric drivers? They could use Reboot, if that's too expensive.And will they ever release Metal Fury remakes? Big Bang Pegasis needs, Final Reboot'.
>>10089172What age range are these for?
>>10094752Ages 8+. Hasbro was cheap that season and they hallowed out the metal and removed gimmicks/changed parts.
>>10094987And then they resold the original ones in gaudy colors for a premium price.
>>10095098>gaudy colors for a premium priceThe original colors are much better, I thought recolors were supposed to be enticing. At least this one has the Mode-Change gimmick and RSF. Blitz has a great design.
>>10095279It was apart of a side gimmick called "Spar FX", which basically amounted to "ugly neon colors". My guess is that Hasbro thought they could extort bladers by forcing them to buy the Hyperblades along with their PTS versions in order to have the original version; and even then, they fucked that up.
>>10095395That probably is the reason. Like how they release inferior Beyblade Burst products. Then they "listen to the fans", with the pro-series. "Authentic Japanese Tops " = Takara Tomy molds, with cheaper materials. They need to lose the brand license.
>>10095398In the case of the MFB Hyperblades, they didn't even release them all.>no Fang Leone>no Beat Lynx>no Duo Uranus>no Scythe Kronos>no Fusion Hades>no Death QuetzalcoatlHasbro would bring back the hyperblades for Legends, with their correct colors, but Fang Leone and Death Quetzalcoatl were the only missing ones to make into this series.
>>10095405That's weird I wonder why. Death Quetzalcoatl would've been nice, for more RDF's.
It's too late for me boys. On my tenth DB beyblade purchase and I'm already thinking about the next. Going to round things out with Vanish Fafnir, the upcoming Burst/Ultimate Spriggan and Valkyrie set, then maybe I'll consider Zest Achilles for A gear but honestly it doesn't look all that good to me compared to previous Achilles beys.
>>10095695That's a lot of damage to your wallet. Why did they have to give Ultimate Valkyrie, Accel and not ULTIMATE Reboot'.
You know what I think is funny? OG Spin Dragoon could probably beat a majority of burst blades pretty easily.
>>10096082>Spin Dragoon could probably beat a majority of burst blades pretty easily.It weighs only 21.9g
>>10095419No, Death Quetzalcoatl did make it into the Legends line. Lynx, Uranus, Kronos, and Hades didn't make it.
>>100963Oh okay, I didn't remember.Also. >>10096371 >>10096082Victory Valkyrie's disc Boost, weighs 20.0g and the wiki says its light. The whole Beyblade is about 35.1g.
>>10050693>Maybe I should check out this new beyblade general>People unironically call them beys nowGuess I'm old because I hate that. "Beyblade" doesn't take enough effort to say to warrant shortening to just "bey", and it sounds pretty dumb. Also I don't think I like the way the current beyblades look so I guess I won't be getting back into the hobby sadly. Have fun, and stop calling them "beys".
>>10096421>I don't think I like the way the current beyblades lookMaybe we'll see you next Gen 2023.>>10096421>Have fun, and stop calling them "beys".Bei.
I have not played with Beyblades since a decade ago. Went looking at the local scene and shit was REALLY complex.Everyone needed to have 4 or 5 beys with non repeating parts to enter the local tournaments.Anyone has reccomendations what I should grab off the shelves to get started?
>>10096419Weight isn't the only factor. I have a spin dragoon, and a fair few burst blades, and when I can launch into a good flower pattern, it fairly often wins via bursting the burst blades. Otherwise, it still tends to out spin them, since its so light, it can spin for several minutes on when you get a really good launch.
>>10096421>and stop calling them "beys".The anime calls them "beys".
>>10096622>it still tends to out spin them, since its so light,that's not how moment of inertia works, Lighter Beyblade have less mass. So it would conserve less angular momentum.
>>10096606the "official" rules are so far up their own ass its stupid, also, if you decide to have any kind of cash prize, or pay to play (like 1$ to enter the tournament kind of thing), so the winner can have a cash prize, WBO have decided that you need to give them some money too.Organize your own tournaments with your own rules.These are the rules I use when hosting events.1. Each player must bring at least 1 complete beyblade.2. Games are best of 3 rounds.3. Anything goes as long as all parts are official takara or hasbro.Thats it.
>>10096747I retract my statement. Bistool is even better. It stands undefeated in my collection.
Why didn't Bdaman, catch on like Beyblade.
>>10097518because literally anyone can catch onto the rules of beyblade jsut by watching someone play it, but bdaman was kinda complicated, and they advertized it to an audience a little too young for it. If it was aimed for a more teen group, I think it would have done better, but they were aiming for the same young age group as beyblade, but also, beyblade is just spinning tops, and literally everyone loves a good spinning top toy.
>>10097565>bdaman was kinda complicatedI remember it being various marble games, testing accuracy, power, control, and rapid. The history of Bdaman is weird with it starting as licensed Bomberman tie-in. I remember watching The Battle Bdaman anime where they attempted to make it more like Beyblade with "Direct Hit Battle".
>>10097794Wasn't it just a remake of crossfire?
>>10097919>Wasn't it just a remake of crossfire?No. Hasbro did use the Crossfire branding when they adapted "Cross Fight B-daman". The two series are unrelated, Bdaman is more like Beyblade. Customizable figures, with multiple parts and stats. Crossfire was just a board game, like "Battling Tops".
>>10097565The rules were complicated because the idea was that you could make up your own games with them.>>10097978I remember hearing that B-Daman started out as literally just marbles with figures.
>>10097978>The two series are unrelatedThough, "B-Daman Invasion" was basically Crossfire with only one puck.
>Beyblade Evolution for the 3DS has 3D models of the unreleased Byakko and Garudas wheels>nobody has thought to rip the models from the game and 3D print models of theme as actual parts
>>10098123>just marbles with figuresBomberman figures with marbles.>>10098124I remember, I played the Beyblade and Bdaman GBA games. The V Force game is just worst, Marble Madness.>>10098136I forgot there was a Zero G game, or that it had unreleased Beyblades. People made 3D prints of unreleased Gen1 Beyblades, like Tryhorn. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MxLb72mWzrUSomeone should tell, CrazyAries.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YYNS67d4PYg
>>10098163It'd be nice if somebody 3D printed Garudas and Byakko. Then I can finally a proper mfb Dranzer and Driger.
Looking to replace the fucked up stickers on my Dragoon F (not picrel), hypothetically speaking, would the stickers from the burst remake fit the plastic gen? Screengrabs from a YouTube video I found seem to suggest the answer is a resounding maybe. The eyes are probably a bit too small, and the blue blade stickers seem a bit shorter and longer than the original. If anyone here owns both, I'd love your input.Alternatively if anyone knows where I can buy repros of the original sticker sheet, that'd be great too. Best I've been able to fine is a someone on insta/reddit who offers to do it, but it doesn't seem like the quality is all that good.
>>10099372>if anyone knows where I can buy repros of the original sticker sheet, that'd be great too.https://www.ebay.co.uk/usr/tailor-blades
>>10099593Unless I'm blind, it doesn't look like they're selling the stickers I'm after, which is unfortunate, because they look pretty high quality. Thanks anyway pal.
>>10099372no, the burst remakes are the wrong dimensions
>>10099643Yeah that's basically what I figured. Apparently the bit-beast sticker is the same size, but I'm doubtful that anything else would have fit. Maybe I can find a company that'll custom cut the stickers for me or something.
>>10099617You might be able to ask them for a set.
I hate High mode
Got lucky today and scored a Driger V2 from a random booster pack 29. This thing is so nostalgic, goddamn.
>>10102876Its has one of the best/op stock combo
>>10104156>collectors item is also useful in a practical senseBreddy cool, TT knows what's good. Would the driver be worth switching out to make it even better? High Xtend, maybe?
>>10104208High Xtend+' is the best stamina driver
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kiRaQIOODukThis giant stadium is really cool, Beyblades can build lots of momentum so attacks are strong.But you have less contact and will quickly lose power/stamina to climb the slope and knock outI wonder how an RC Beyblade would perform in this stadium, you could "steer" it and spin longer.
>>10106538That looks like it'd be good fun. Where do you even get one though?

Has anybody gotten a hold of those new fan reproduction bb-10 stadiums? I heard they work just as well for Burst as they do for MFB and Plastics and the DB stadium and Pro Series both have some problems I'm not a fan of.
>>10054917One, Ice Dranzer needs to be louder, angrier, and have access to a time machine. Two, whenever Ice Dranzer's not on screen, all the other characters should be asking "Where's Ice Dranzer"?>>10098163The bootlegs of these were everywhere on my country when I was a kid. I think I saw pretty much every gen and iteration of it because new forms just kept popping out like mushrooms.I have no idea if anyone bought them, though. Someone should have because someone had to move the old ones out of the shelves to make space for the new ones but I never met someone that owned one.
>>10104223You weren't kidding. High Xtend+' takes Driver V2 from a stock spin time of roughly 1:26 all the way up to 1:55. That feels so dirty.
>>10108164I'm pretty sure the core is just called "Kitty".>>10109074About as good as Vanish Spriggan Onver High Xtend+'-0.
>>10114227Db core is hello kitty
>>10114637That's retarded. "Hello Kitty" doesn't sound good at all as a core name compared to just "Kitty". That's not even her real name.
>>10053091Did you regret it?
>>10112027i bought some battle b-daman as a kid, wish i still had them.>>10114792what's the hello kitty lore?
Thinking about swapping out the Yard' on my Chain Kerbeus, is Atomic' still useful as a defense driver, or is there something better?
>>10118659For one, her real name is "Kitty White".
>>10122067From what I've seen, Moment does well with it.https://youtu.be/wadxJFG_5Vk
So, do you guys like Hidden Spirits?
Box contents. Pristine condition given it's age.
Assembled bey. Modern beyblades could never compete with such elegant and appealing simplicity.
My adorable little man. A suprising amount of personality considering the body is mainly static.
'Shield mode', looks cool, but hard to maintain because the weight disk topples the figure.
'Flying mode', Look at him go!
'Scissors mode', very intimidating.

And here he is morphed into a ball. Thank you for listening to my Ted Talk.
>>10125107those are sick, thanks for sharing.
>>10068853Good shit. Wish we got official continuations of some plastic gen lines in MFB. Imagine a Dragoon 105RF in the Horoscope Series style.
>>10125086>>10125089Do you have pics of the blade base? From the bottom and the top without the AR and WD?
>>10129340sure here you go.Also, this site has a pretty good catalog of most plastic gen parts. https://www.plasticsdb.com/home
>>10050693like my wind knight with high eternal and red 6 armor.need to find tournaments in the NJ

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H1cjcvaw0lMTakara teased an announcement for March 21 2023 (321 Go Shoot). People are speculating it's Gen 4.What do you think they'll do, some think it'll be an amalgam of old Gens because everything is multiversal. Takara says Beyblade has gone evergreen in Europe, so they might want mass and/or generational appeal.>>10125528Like a mix between MFB and Plastic Gen.>>10129660The WBO really ruined their wiki switching to Wikia/Fandom, that site sucks>>10125086>>10131605We should've got a Transformers Beyblade.
>>10133628A bit of a way off but still exciting.
>>10104223That's debatable. Bearing' and Bearing Drift are better in pure stamina, but HXT+' has better LAD.
>>10063372>What do you think Beyblade Gen 4 will look like? I think it starts fall 2023. I liked BurstIf I had my waybeys would be a lot smaller again and a bit heaviercopy the same basic silhouette as the early plastic gen (triangle/cones over T shaped tops)keep the metal attack ring from MF since they tend to last longer Gimmick would reuse the engine gear system since yeah I know it was kind of shit in competitions but that was almost 20 years ago so spring and gear contraptions are a bit more complex and reliable now
>>10134821>beys would be a lot smaller again and a bit heavierThey generally are in the beginning>>10134821>(triangle/cones over T shaped tops)The T shape is what makes them spin longer, because Flywheel/Outward weight distribution.The problem is if you graph their stamina, it mostly extends the boring part at the end.>>10134821>use the engine gear system since yeah I know it was kind of shit in competitionsEngine gear was cool, I think the reason they were bad wasn't the mechanism, it was the engine gear/clutch base's height.So shorter Beyblades just pummeled them.
>>10135879I know the T shape is more efficient while spinning, but I think the old giant biases on the plastic gens not only looked cooler while spinning/battling but correct me if I'm wrong but the blade base/spin gear system had a surprising amount of customization options
>>10136333>the blade base/spin gear system had a surprising amount of customization optionsIt did, more then I thought. you can dissemble the spin gear/ change the core/bearings and shafts. Their model kit design made them feel like assembling a RC car.
>>10134658Isnt lad made it a bit better since it will be hard to kept in perfect balance when they kept clashes into each others?
>>10133628> The WBO really ruined their wiki switching to Wikia/Fandom, that site sucksHindsight is 20/20, the Fandom mobile experience in 2022 is terrible. I guess the main concern was the people going to Fandom was far greater than people going to the WBO hosted Wiki - so why not just have the "good info" on the site that people use anyway, and save on server costs too?But it seems like not everything has been properly moved yet, and site is dead. Occasionally there's some dumbass kid that writes their own opinions and it stays up for 10 years.>>10113661Solo spin time isn't really a good measure of Stamina or performance. In actual battle there are factors (mostly the opponent's Bey) that make a Driver good in a certain matchup.
>>10138612Playing some games with my friend. Plastic and HMS.
>>10137706>save on server costs tooits funny because you can still access the old wiki. it's just out of date now.I think fandom pays to get top search results, even if their site experience is inferior.And the ads, god. It was the reason I got adblock, I can't go back.>>10138613>>10138612how do you play. do you do draft battles or just do whatever..
>>10138769I have several Takara stadiums from the era (A-5, 93, 44, 26, and Ultimate). We play custom combos for each format. We have a youtube/social media page (Beyblade Challenge). We play Plastic, HMS and Burst. I’m looking forward towards the new Beyblades next year.
>>10138838>(Beyblade Challenge)I watched your channel the other day. That Magnacore video hit my recommended feed. Then I watched your HMS in the Ultimate Stadium video.
>>10146548Let It Rip (Go Shoot)
>>10096421Takara-Tomy made a soft announcement about a new generation, expect news 21st March next year.
>>10139465Thanks for watching. I hope you enjoyed the battles.
>>10096421Yeah don't call them Beys, call them Blades>"Wanna see my Blades?"
>>10154799"Bey" is a shorthand version of "beigoma", which is the name for Japanese battling tops.
Bearing' or bearing drift?
What happened to Beyblades in the UK, nobody has them in stock at retail. Not that I'd buy Burst Beys, they looks tacky as all hell and the gimmick is shit, but still. (maybe I answered my own question)
>>10158019Bearing Drift has better LAD, only use Bearing' to make up for poor burst résistance.>>10158019It's just Hasbro underperforming. Beyblade are popular in Europe but they're failing to meet demand.
Aight. So let me get this straight.Beyblades of the current iteration of the current generation (Dynamite Battle and Burst Ultimate) all weigh nearly 2.5 times more than the original iteration (OG Burst)?Doesn't that wreck the "Attack Defense Stamina" RPS mechanism? How healthy is the meta? I can't imagine there's much variety.
>>10160240There's different formats for older parts. Most OG layers/drivers(tips) were already long obsolete, weight or not. The RPS "mechanism" is fine. LAD/opposite spin, is what people really complain about. All the previous Gens has power creep, it's just that Burst ran longest. I think MFB's "Standard Format" is considered worst meta. It's dominated by "Synchrome" where you can double a Beyblade's weight and RDF(Best LAD/Defense Tip).
>>10160558If the RPS design is fine, how come all I saw were stamina and attack beys online? Idk, Maybe my desire for a balanced game is too unrealistic for something like Beyblade.Just ordered a ton from Japan - the yen is shit right now, so the tops are cheaper than the Hasbro stuff.Just wish I could buy the MFB and plastics stuff easier - I completely missed the MF generation. My little cousin's going to like playing this at least.
>>10160659>how come all I saw were stamina and attack beys onlineThe reason is defense parts make good stamina combos, because both are very similar. They tried to depict a stamina type as lighter. But a heavy round Beyblade with OWD (outward weight distribution), is both harder to knockout and spins longer.
>>10074981>>10075032Personally I'd say it's for the better since it ensures every Beyblade has an identity of it's own. Part of the reason I never collected any Metal Fight was how visually boring they all looked. Nothing but round shapes and smooth edges with muted color schemes because of all the metal, even when compared to Gen 1's sharp edges and bright colors.
>>10161235I don't think they're muted at all. The clear wheel adds enough color, and the Facebolt graffiti motifs look great. Static or in motion the way it fastens the Beyblade feels solid, physically and aesthetically. It feels industrial in it's simplicity. They tried to add more color on the metal wheel, but the paint chipped. Overall I like how MFB looked.
>>10161441I'm coming around to trying them after all these years. The Burst meta seems really stale and samey - so maybe trying out the MFB line could be fun.
>>10161441Yeah I still can't get over how dry Pegasus looks for an attack type; it's too damn circular which is a problem I have with a lot of they beys in Metal Fight. Somebody posted a Ray Unicorno with metal protrusions that at least gives it more of a visual identity, but that's only one layer out of sea of many. Easily my biggest complaint about Metal as a whole is the clear bias against left spins (being left handed myself). Outside of L Drago and maybe Perseus, there aren't that many around (I think Twisted Tempo can dual spin as well? can't remember). It's one of the bigger reasons Burst quickly became my favorite line. They introduced a number of left spins and dual spin beys after the first generation, and while not all of them are winners, at least Takara Tomy tried to give them gimmicks and abilities that amounted to more than it spins left and can therefore steal spin from a right.Plus the fact L Drago is "evil" and "one of a kind" just because it spun left didn't sit well with me then and it still doesn't now. At least Perseus can dual spin and it's probably the only Metal Fight bey I'd ever be interested in buying.
>>10161614>Lefties can't right spin.
>>10161614see plastic gen>>10089106>>10089107Basically all beyblades from the second wave on could swap spin.This made literally double the stratigic possibilities.
>>10161614>how dry Pegasus looks for an attack type; it's too damn circularThe Storm wheel is notoriously bad for Attack. If you want to see jagged and better attack wheels. Try Vulcan, Flash (an Oval) VariesAries (also Dual spin) Etc. Andin ZeroG using Ronin/Dragoon on top, allows any Beyblade to become left spin.They actually revealed in the lore that it wasn't evil because it spun left, but because it was corrupted by dark power from its use from malevolent men throughout history. When Pegasis defeated it, it wasn't evil anymore.
