In my Meteor Dragon review I mentioned these toys were limited in terms of customizability. As far as I can tell, here are the parts you can equip on a Cartridge System B-Daman.
The Cartridge Rapid-fire Trigger (Rensya Trigger if you insist on following the Romaji product name) was the greatest draw when I noticed the existence of the Cartridge System line and I had to get it. I decided to separate this post due to the complexity of the gimmick involved.
More add-on parts, this time from the Advanced Tuning (AT) System series. Most of these sets come with at least one runner containing an AT System front bumper, and mounting parts you can stick to normal Choro Q cars using the included double-sided tape. However for some sets you have the option of using some of those parts to make for slightly different configurations.
I’ve been a sucker for B-Daman with unusual gimmicks, and tended to buy them when they became old stock and went on clearance. For some reason I missed out the Cartridge System generation even though I had quite a few from the previous Zero/Zero2 line and the Crash B-Daman line right after.
Now that I’m living in Japan, it’s slightly easier to find out-of-production old toys, but their prices vary a lot depending on their perceived rarity. Notably, the price of B-Daman toys drops to clearance levels but as they get older, their prices will slowly rise.
Original Effect has built a reputation for shoddy QC despite having some very unique character designs. This time, they’ve collaborated with a Japanese garage kit maker to mass produce his figures. They’re called MoMo and have modular parts.
Before reading on, I probably should warn that this post may be possibly NSFW due to the design of the figure and the poses I have put it in.
Continuing from my previous post, I left the hotel on the morning of 2nd May to take a train from Takasaki Station in Gunma Prefecture, to Nikko Station in Tochigi.
Here’s a pic of Tochigi Station I took before transferring to another train.
I haven’t used the “life” category on my blog much, as it probably suggests I don’t have much of one, ha ha. Anyway I decided to take a break from the usual reviews and write about a trip I took during this year’s Golden Week long vacation before I forget the details.
