The interview of Hasbro's Vice President for Marketing included a statement which is contrary to the actual performance of the top. Weird. Confused

just proves how much hasbro knows about beyblade

That may be true, but you'd think he'd at least know some physics...

"In many ways, the work of a critic is easy. We risk very little, yet enjoy a position over those who offer up their work and their selves to our judgment. We thrive on negative criticism, which is fun to write and to read. But the bitter truth we critics must face, is that in the grand scheme of things, the average piece of junk is probably more meaningful than our criticism designating it so. But there are times when a critic truly risks something, and that is in the discovery and defense of the new. The world is often unkind to new talent, new creations. The new needs friends. Last night, I experienced something new: an extraordinary meal from a singularly unexpected source. To say that both the meal and its maker have challenged my preconceptions about fine cooking is a gross understatement. They have rocked me to my core. In the past, I have made no secret of my disdain for Chef Gusteau's famous motto, "Anyone can cook." But I realize, only now do I truly understand what he meant. Not everyone can become a great artist; but a great artist can come from anywhere."

-Anton Ego/Peter O'Toole (1932-2013)

as a news report it was good, same with the publicity for the hobby, but as far as the information on it, Derryl DePriest, Hasbro's OWN VP of marketing muffed up the Attack and Stamina types.... I applaud Hasbro on being the North American "rep.s" -if you will- of the hobby, but all in all Hasbro makes some derpy moves here and there....

This is truly awesome. It's cool to see the WBO gain so much publicity! After all, we are one of the top 30 sites to appear, from when I last checked, along with the BeyChannel videos.

Sorry, but as someone who works in marketing at a toy company, he absolutely should know what he is talking about if he is going to talk about it. He doesn't need to be an "Advanced Blader" but this is one of the most basic ideas of the game.

I no longer manage nor work for the WBO. Do not PM or e-mail me questions about Beyblade! I will not respond!

WAMU is the local affiliate here in the Washington DC metro area, and broadcasts on 88.5 FM.

Correct. National Public Radio is far and away the most prestigious and respected broadcast news voice in the United States. Congratulations on the story!

Amazing news.

That being said, these types of articles are supposed to appeal to parents who actually listen to the radio, or to children who just want to play with a new toy. They really couldn't care less if the top jumped or not, so pointing out technical flaws in the writing doesn't matter all that much.

And what's all this stereotypical garbage about "For boys."

With regards to Garcia winning with a BBP, I believe 4D isn't out in the US yet so why is it they even allowed her to play with imported toys? Correct me if I'm wrong, but this seems like the mentality they would use in Hasbro tournaments.
