I could have sworn that I saw Gaia Dragoon in stores alot...I wonder if there was a name consistancy issue? Or maybe I just have a memory consistancy issue...

@th!nk: That doesnt really sound like the reason. Alot of words begin with "Ga-" and Gaia is prounced nothing like that word. Hasbro released "Cetus" which sounds like "Fetus" so I dont think this applies to this situation, haha

And honestly, kids calling Gaia Dragoon that name have no impact on Hasbro. That is just a result of immaturity, and I dont think it would effect a parent's decision to buy the toy, and I myself never made fun of Gaia Dragoon's name

I do remember calling Strata Dragoon, "Gaia Dragoon" on numerous occasions back in the day as a kid. I am 100% hasbro called it Gaia Dragoon

I never liked Gaia Dragoon for the sole reason that a second Dragoon just existed somehow. Its induction into the plot was so poorly constructed

Hasbro always called it "Strata". It was part of the general complain the Off the Chain members did by calling Hasbro repeatedly.

@LeonTempest: The first part of your post is a repeat of your last post here.
The bulk of Gaia Dragoon's introduction/history was in the movie (Beyblade: The Movie: Fierce Battle), not in the anime itself. IDK if you've watched that, but yeah.

As for why you called it Gaia Dragoon, it was also fairly well known as by the time it was released, the internet was commonplace and there were a lot of fansites.

Not sure but it may have also been on the stickers of Strata Dragoon V, trying to find some pictures.

And with that, I take my leave - it's been an interesting ride, but one can only bang one's head against a wall so many times before they learn - and my head is mighty sore.

To recap, the anime CGI renders of "Strata Dragoon" had labels calling it Gaia Dragoon. Presumably, we think the Hasbro products of Strata Dragoon also have Gaia Dragoon stickers, but we are unsure

The beyblade movie was released in english actually but I think it was only the US that got it.

Looking for a red DEMS AR (with the stickers) and Bit Protector. Thanks!

Oh, yeah, sorry, a few posts were deleted and I forgot to edit the one useful thing in them into my last post afterwards.

Correct. I used to have the movie on DVR about a year ago, but I do not know what channel aired it, if it was shown dubbed in the US only, or if it was a reairing of the dubbed movie or it was dubbed years after Beyblade was canceled. My recording accidnetaly got deleted so I cant answer those questions

Considering that was more about the anime just now lets get back on topic

Please let the moderators moderate the threads. Also, it just comes off wrong when someone participating in an "off topic" side discussion elects to ask everyone else to get back "on topic".

I should have said that I got us off on this tanget, and it would be best to not continue it. I would never try to undermine a mod's job. I simply felt responsible, and I did not want to cause any more trouble for my oversights, as I did before

A while ago I asked about AR sliding issues. Would it be possible (while illegal) to apply nail polish to the bottom of the AR to prevent this sliding and increase friction? Obviously it is illegal, but I know some recreational MFB players do this with bad CH120s and I would like to know if the same logic would apply for this as well. Thanks in advance for you help

Well, just because of the fact that it might count as an illegal modification, it wouldn't be of any use, you know. Smile
To actually increase friction up there, I believe that a thick coat of nail polish would be required; which is certainly illegal. So yeah!

@th!nk- OK, reply whenever you have time. Smile

No, actually, you can clear coat parts if it doesn't affect the texture/behaviour, but it cannot be thick: that's all in the rules, and is pretty much the only legal way to tighten parts. I'd also suggest coating the whole thing anyways, as long as you stay within the rules.

Anyway, onto this, I must admit it slipped my mind (and I wrote this reply a couple of hours back without posting it).

Aaand, I suppose Zombies usually have short or mid-height bases. So all I meant there, was it was actually too tall to be called an orthodox Zombie bey... Smile
Also, I got the SG with the MG core, so the tip does go slightly inwards. But still, my point was what I mentioned above. Smile
Actually, there aren't any short-height zombies, they generally need to be mid-tall for good LAD, largely, I guess, so they don't spin themselves out (it's hard to describe the action, but a beys base touches the surface and it moves in the opposite direction to normal, removing all of its spin). Dranzer V's base is about the same height as most zombie bases, actually.

Quote:As for Sonic Tiger, it was (and is) probably the best Stamina-suited AR I owned (OK, I have Twin Horn too; but I need a good enough SAR to utilize it well) and that is just why I used it.
It is otherwise a not-so-good AR according to WBO standards of course, but I like it a bit... Smile
If you had it, then you probably wouldn't even consider using it over a Tiger Defenser or something. But well, as this is all I had, and is also one of my favorite ARs, I used it here.
It actually would have had a small amount of Upper Attack, if those slopes weren't so shallow, and if the contact point extended into a continuous slope(making the AR a two-sided one); instead of those gaps you see in between.
But still, I am quite curious to know about Sonic Tiger, especially because its not everyday that you read a discussion related to it somewhere around the Forum, or see it on the BeyWiki. Smile

Sonic Tiger is too Aggressive man. Master Dranzer's AR has better stamina but only in left spin Uncertain

It's not really popular because it's really average, too aggressive for non-attack, but not good enough for attack. Hopefully when I get one I'll share more info on it, Driger V is an irritating omission to my current collection. I do have one ordered, though.

And with that, I take my leave - it's been an interesting ride, but one can only bang one's head against a wall so many times before they learn - and my head is mighty sore.

Oh, I thought Zombies had to be low enough, so that they can quickly switch to LAD as soon as they sleep out.
Because if they were tall, then they would wobble to death...
This "belief" was largely influenced by MFB's WD tip; which is great on lower heights, but goes haywire on high tracks.

As for Sonic Tiger, it is aggressive, yes. Actually its a bit too recoil-y instead...
Actually, I got a lot of info about Zombies when I read past your BeyBlargh's Zombie article. Smile

So, I'll wait for the arrival of your Driger V, and would certainly wait for the "more info" you might share. Smile

Oh, no, that wobbling/precession is a benefit to them, and you must understand, the weight distribution of plastics is much less extreme than MFB, the plastic equivalent of 230 height is perhaps the Jumping SG's of Trygle/Cyber Dragoon fully extended (it's hard to find an equivalent though, given the massive weight differences). MFB's behave really differently to plastics overall.

Yeah, part of the same things, in some combos it will be aggressive, in others, it's recoily. Same coin, different sides.
Ahh, that was just defensive zombies (though they are still similar). I must get working on the proper zombies post, though I'm not sure whether something about spiral change base will come before or after.

The coolest thing about driger V I know of is that its tip does really well in Driger V2's base in place of the metal change tip. Completely illegal so you "didn't hear it from me" (though if stuff like that were legal it would be sweeeeet). Definitely something for my blog rather than here, haha Tongue_out

And with that, I take my leave - it's been an interesting ride, but one can only bang one's head against a wall so many times before they learn - and my head is mighty sore.

Clear Coat makes alot of sesne. It is technicaly a paint, which would fall under a legal modification, and it would show any visible change to my collection. Although there would be no garuntee that the paint would stya on the plastic right? Would a clear primer agent be better? (if such a thing exists) or should a clear coat do just fine?

This question of mine may sound weird, but I am sure that I am not the only one wondering: what the hell are those bit-birds? On the bit chip, instead of the actual bit-beast, it is a bird (a raven or some other kind of bird). It comes with the same colour as they beyblade. Thanks in advance!

He may mean the random bit beasts that are included with each beyblade in addition to a spare bitchip. From my experience, the most common one is the one he is describing. I dont know which specific bit beat it is, but I believe it is from the Dranzer family

You're thinking of ice dranzer, but the color thing he mentioned doesn't match that. It's my main guess though.

Definatly Ice Dranzer. I used to have more of those than I did beys...

The only other ones I ever remember getting from Hasbro beys were Metal Draciel, Metal Driger and Death Draciel (not a real bey, but used alot with the Wing and Roller series) Other, rarer spare bit beasts may have been avaliable, I am sure, but generally, all you would see is Ice Dranzer with Hasbro

With the 2 bit chips included, one would always have japanese writing on it on one side. The other would not. What did it say?
