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.
DHB stands for Direct Hit Battle. It’s a gimmick unique to the Battle B-Daman toys where the aim is to shoot marbles directly at your opponent’s B-Daman.
The first generation DHB Armor could only take one hit before disabling the B-Daman. Later on Advanced versions came that could take 3 hits. This being the last iteration, it takes 3 hits and is also one of the most compact versions.
Package contents. The unit is pre-assembled. You slide a notch on the bottom to reset the hit counter.
I forgot to take a picture of it mounted on a B-Daman. Due to the sight shield which goes between the body and arms, you have to re-attach the arms further away from the body, negating any power-boosting effects that the arms may provide and ensuring all DHB B-Daman have the same lowered power levels. I guess it’s due to child safety requirements because you are indirectly aiming and shooting marbles at your opponent when playing DHB.
The bit with the red triangle sticker blocks marbles from being launched when the unit is disabled.
This mounts on the rear of the B-Daman and increases the footprint of the toy making it more stable. You can adjust the stabilizer legs in one of three positions.
Here’s the stabilizer folded up.
And in the other two possible positions. At the ends are compartments where you can insert marbles to act as rollers. However no marbles are included with this set.
Here it is with stickers applied. I think the one I got was left in the sun or something – the stickers were completely unusable.
Here I’ve mounted it onto my B-Daman. With the Rapid Fire Trigger installed you have to attach the stabilizer in reverse, limiting the stabilizer legs to the fully deployed position only.
The complement to the Variable Stabilizer, this replaces the stock feet.
It also comes with two marbles, though they seem to be defective ones with chips and deep scratches on them.
While you could choose not to install marbles in the Variable Stabilizer, the point of this is to allow you to have rollers on the feet as well.
With marbles installed on the feet and stabilizers, you can roll the B-Daman around easily.
A pair of large handles to replace the stock grip.
That’s it. Nothing too special.
It makes it easier to hold the toy except the Variable Stabilizer kinda gets too close to the grip handles.
You can also remove one of the handles and replace it with a cover if you like the one-handed style of operation.
A barrel to increase shot accuracy. You can increase its length if you have multiple sets.
Each section is attached by twisting to lock them in position.
It’s a bit tricky to install the barrel with the DHB Unit as well. You have to attach the barrel first, then work the DHB Unit sight shield a bit as you install it last.
Like the System Barrel, it has the same central modular part allowing you to extend its length if you have multiple pieces.
You can use the modular bits to extend the barrel like so.
Same goes for the magazine. Each of the modular bits allows you to stock 2 more marbles.
