TWO SCHOOLS OF BEYBLADES
METAL BEYBLADES & BURST BEYBLADES
Metal Beyblades were the original Beyblades where the Beyblades contain metal. The smaller size and increased weight causes more action and movement in the battles and is still hugely popular and the prefered Beyblades by many. These Beyblades run at cost generally 2-4x less than Burst Beyblades. The typical price is $4-$8 per Beyblade, $2-$10 per launcher.
Burst Beyblades are the new generation of Beyblades. These plastic toys that will 'burst' into the 3 original building components of the Beyblade if struck hard enough. The 'burst' factor makes the game exciting due to the unpredictable nature of it. Any Beyblade commercials you see on T.V. will likely be about Burst Beyblades. The typical price for Burst Beyblades is $15- $40 per Beyblade and $8-$20 per launcher.
*** Launchers are NOT interchangeable for each system. A launcher for a metal Beyblade will NOT work with a Burst Beyblade and vice versa.
*** Any stadium can be used for Metal or Burst Beyblades
*** Can I buy Metal to play against Burst?
- Generally the answer is no. Metal battles are fun because the metal clashing on metal causes an exciting dynamic and Burst battles are fun because the 'bursting' mechanic. Collection both to see the differences in battle intensity is something we highly recommended but we do not recommend pitting Metal vs. Burst.
