HMS & Plastics Remembrance Day 2016 + BeyLotto + Face Contest + More!!


Angry Face
Hey, World Bladers!

We've got some great announcements for you now, so sit back and enjoy!

HMS & Plastics Remembrance Day is especially relevant this month, so let's all celebrate this July 23rd & 24th!!

It's not fantasy, this is for real: Bakuten Shoot Beyblade, the first generation of Beyblades released back in 1999, is making a (small) comeback!

Just to summarise, this month we can expect:
  • New Bakuten Shoot Beyblade manga chapter getting released in a side CoroCoro magazine, drawn by the original author Aoki Takao and featuring the four original main characters Takao (Tyson), Kai, Max and Rei (Ray).

  • This manga chapter will be scanlated by a team of your fellow WBO Members and posted ASAP after publication!

  • A gold Driger S Burst Ver. will be given away in a limited lottery in that CoroCoro issue.

  • A Bakuten Shoot Beyblade 1 Legendary Beyblade book will be released on July 15th 2016 in Japan.

  • Around fall, Dranzer S, Draciel S and Driger S are confirmed to be reproduced as Burst Beyblades.

But the excitement doesn't stop there, oh no! We're only getting started!!


Tournaments of the HMS or Plastic format!

No celebration would be complete without our members and their communities across the globe coming together to play Beyblade and pay homage the series that started it all. What's more, all participants of an HMS & Plastics Remembrance Day tournament will receive 1 extra Credit just for the occasion! That means you can get two Credits just for entering the tournament, which gets you at least one Face Booster or more in the Blader Rewards campaign!

Here's the current lineup of communities participating in HMS & Plastics Remembrance Day:


– July 23rd –

– July 24th –

If any more incentive was needed, a BeyLotto ought to suffice!

This time around, all 10 winners picked will receive their choice of the Plastic-themed Face Boosters we rarely get to see! That means that you've got even more chances of obtaining one, on top of those you can get for participating in an HMS-format or Plastic-format tournament all year long!

As usual, the top prizes are reserved for Passport Holders as thanks for their continued support!

Face Contest: Design a Plastic or HMS Beyblade in Burst!

With the classic main S-Series Beyblades getting re-designs for Burst, we're challenging you to step into Takara-Tomy's design team's shoes once again! This time, to reimagine and redesign old school Beyblades as members of the Burst System!

The winners will get their choice of:
  • Face Booster RED [Image: faceboosterred.png]
  • Face Booster BLUE [Image: faceboosterblue.png]
  • Face Booster GREEN [Image: faceboostergreen.png]
  • Face Booster ORANGE [Image: faceboosterorange.png]
  • Face Booster YELLOW [Image: FaceBoosterIconYellow.png]
  • Face Booster PURPLE [Image: FaceBoosterIconPurple.png]

That's right, winners. The top three entries will each receive a Face Booster!


But wait, what's this? Just in, the top winner will also be getting...


The S-Series Beyblade Burst of their choice!

Waaaaaahhh!!


Considering Takara-Tomy is already remaking the S-Series, we ask that you steer clear of redesigning those Blades and focus your attention to the rest of the incredibly diverse Bakuten Shoot Beyblade and HMS lines. You have until July 31st 2016, at 11:59:59 PM EST to submit your entry!

HMS Face Boosters!

Plastics and regular Face Boosters still not enough for you? Well, you can get HMS Face Boosters for contributing to the WBO in a very special way: by donating $10!

When you make a donation of at least $10, you can choose between Face Booster BLACK II, WHITE, or WHITE II! Donations can be made via Paypal online, or directly at tournaments simply by giving an extra amount to the host, who will then transfer the total amount to us.

New Avatars!

Where would the WBO be without its ever elongating list of avatars to choose from in its Default Gallery? In line with tradition, HMS & Plastics Remembrance Day brings with it a slurry of nostalgia blended with the present — like this year's new additions to the avatar gallery!

In case you missed it, Hasbro's splash page for their Beyblade Burst app is up, on which it says "Coming August 2016!" Does this mean Burst is just around the bend? Check out Kai-V's post in the Hasbro Beyblade Burst topic for more:

A lot of people will probably post on Twitter, so if you could just post the link(s) here, that would really help us keep track of everyone's entries with their appropriate username.

Okay can someone refresh my memory, How do I enter the bey lotto?

You have different ways:
- enter a tournament that is of the Plastic or HMS format that takes place either on July 23rd or on July 24th;
- share memories of Bakuten Shoot Beyblade and/or our social media posts with the hashtag #HMSPlasticsRemembrance.

These can accumulate and give you more than one entry in the BeyLotto, so more chances to win.
