BRACE YOURSELVES! BEYDAYS IS COMING!

Beyblade Prime is back for BeyDays 2017 and this time we got prizes! Yeah you heard me right.
Come join us in Regent's Park for a day filled with battles, prizes, a raffle and much fun!
And do not worry, I'll ensure ~Mana~ doesn't attempt to start up Beyxercise this time round.

LONDON BEYDAYS 2017
PRIZES? NO WAY!
But wait, they're Hasbro tho... Tongue_out

The tournament itself will start at 12:00pm, so as a guide, aim to arrive for 11:30am. The Tube and public transport services are not very reliable, so plan your journey well in advance.

Here is a map of Regent's Park. Click on the tab labelled "Monuments, Fountains and Statues". Head to the area marked Bandstand. We suggest taking the London Underground or Bus to Baker Street.

Proudly sponsored by Hasbro! No seriously, Hasbro gave us prizes.

This tournament is being hosted by Manicben, with Syphon serving as co-host. If you have any queries about the event, feel free to PM us or post in the thread and we'll be happy to help!

Important Advice:
Despite being around friends and rivals, please remember we are in a public park. Bad behaviour and swearing will not be tolerated and will result in a ban from future events. Please keep your personal belongings with you or in a safe place while at the bandstand. If you see any personal items left around with no apparent owner, please hand it in to a judge, so we can return it to its rightful owner. Your cooperation is much appreciated.

Remember to turn up on time. If you arrive later than 12:10pm, your place will be forfeit and you will not be able to participate. If you know you'll be late, please let us know via PM or a post in-thread!

You could try a site called Hobby Link Japan. Their prices are cheaper than retail, but if the overall price of what you buy exceeds £15, then when it comes into the country, you're gonna have to pay import tax, because they don't let you send things as gifts or edit the invoice. It's kinda funny though because on the HMRC website, it says that if you've bought something for personal use, you have to have it sent to the country as gift. lol

I think they just want it for the tournament time itself which is practically impossible to get from another country.

Probably. But this would help for anyone who wants to join a future tournament and wants to get a bey for that tournament.
Hi everyone, got some bad news.
Due to unforeseen circumstances, ~Mana~ can no longer attend. Tis a sad day.

The worst part is that he has all our prizes!!! This means that 1st, 2nd, 3rd and giveaway winners will have to wait for their prizes.
We will figure out a way to get them to you, either in person at the next event or by mail.

Our apologies. And condolences to ~Mana~, was looking forward to crushing his hopes and dreams. xD
Excuse you, I wanted to crush all of your dreams instead. I suppose I kinda am by hoarding all the prizes to myself actually... ;)

But yeah, work were sneaky and scheduled me for a shift this Saturday while I was away. Tried to negotiate to get out of it, but there's no way around it unfortunately. A shame, because I was really looking forward to this.

Sorry guys! :(
As far as I'm aware you only have to pay import duty on items with a value of over 36 pounds.
Depends if it was marked as a gift. If not, £15 is the threshold.
(Jun. 01, 2017  8:26 PM)~Mana~ Wrote: Depends if it was marked as a gift. If not, £15 is the threshold.

Yeah, this is correct. If you can get it marked as gift, £39 is the threshold, which isn't the biggest improvement. I recently started using FromJapan, which is a Yahoo Japan auction site for forwarding the packages internationally, and they let you set the import declaration price. They don't let you mark it as a gift if you use a small packet which is strange. Just don't do what I did and buy through a website that buys off another website, which happened to buy off another website, so I paid postage for all of the separate packages and then consolidated them for 1000 yen and then got them shipped for like £50 and then got a surprise £50 import tax ;(
I'm only 17, so you can imagine how devastating that was to my bank account (I think it actually cleaned out my bank account, and I never even spend my money very often and if I do, it's on sweets or something). Put it this way, the £100 for postage and import tax was more than the beyblades were worth... This is what happens when you don't research these kinds of things kids. Now it makes sense why all those packages my brother has coming in from China are greatly devalued.
WOOOOOOH what happened there was like 12 players coming and now only 8?

dudes if it rains tomorrow i will not come but im hoping the english weather will be nice to us lol

I'm coming too and Balance Blader will definitely be attending too. Even if it does rain we'll be in the shelter of the bandstand anyway so don't let that put you off.

Were looking at decent weather tomorrow. I checked the forecast it's apparently like 21 degrees.

Quick question: I might swing by as an observer so I haven't clicked the join as I won't be an official participant since I don't possess any burst beys as of yet. Is it still alright for me to just swing by and see a few in action?
Spectators are always welcome, haha.

Would I still have to pay? Cos I'll prepare some money just in case if so.

My little brother is tagging along with me today, he doesn't have an account, but is it alright if he joins in with us today? I told him to bring £4.

He can play but he needs to have an account
Todays tournament was awesome! No I did not place. Yes I had to leave before the finals. But by god, I hope I proved the viability of Beast Behemoth!

Really had a lot of fun and everyone who turned up were really nice and friendly and despite being a spectator I found myself to be enticed in certain battles as if I was a participant myself. Was quite lucky that I got to try out some of the burst beys for the first time in person rather than from video observation and they are really cool and in the next tournament I will most likely be a participant. I gotta say it was one hell of a tourney cos no matter what we thought the outcome would be, midway a surprise always occurred and in certain battles the underdog managed to take the win. But overall enjoyable day and really exciting as  I mentioned it almost felt like I was battling in there myself while just observing. My aim is that minoboros oval quake will become a top tier bey one day.
Lol Minoboros!!! SOME DAY
Psssssht Minoborous Oval Quake? More like Spriggan Oval Quake :^)

Glad you had a good time!

Thanks to everyone who came! It was a blast seeing everyone again.
The D/D2 ban continued the meta that started in Beyblade North over here at Beyblade Prime, but with a London twist of course!
I'll cover more of this in my tournament report later this week.

The results:

1st - Manicben
2nd - Basedsamuraij
3rd - Ultra

Sadly ~Mana~ had the prizes so we couldn't give them out or run the raffle. But good news!

Chimera, via random selection, you have won the raffle prize! Congratulations! We will get in touch.

Results sheet will go up on Monday (got report to write and then I can generate the sheet supa quick) and Winning Combos shortly after.
Keep an eye on the London Interest thread for the next tournament. Please fill in the doodle poll there with your availability.

It's almost time to crack open a cold one with the boys. See ya then.

Woaaaaah there was a raffle if only I could go to join it. I would love to win some new beyblades (if that was what it was about, if it was for something else my apologies)
