Continuing my B-Daman barrage with Chris Greaver. I might be wrong but his previous ride might have been a Toys R Us exclusive in Japan. I already had this toy many years ago but I bought this as a set along with the previous two toys off Yahoo Auctions.
The rear illustration finally has a photo of the combiner mode.
As always, the box is jam-packed with runners.
Starting with the arms, which are considerably more complex than the previous toys.
The forearms have a retracting gimmick.
Upper Unit complete.
This toy’s B-Da Unit is very simple for what it does. It contains two chambers for you to load four ball bearings for a total of eight.
You fire all of them in one go using the white plungers at the back. The gray trigger-shaped part is for display.
The legs are similar to Chris Blued, with one concealing an elbow.
The right foot contains the combiner mode hand.
Lower Unit complete.
The B-Daman figure is the same as the others.
Assembling the helmet.
Transforming the B-Daman figure into the Armor Mode head is slightly different from the rest as you have to keep the feet positioned behind the helmet and not move it to form the helmet ears.
Armor Mode complete.
Rear view. Again, no fancy poses or anything because all these toys are only good for standing and shooting marbles.
Ride Mode resembles a tank.
I think this toy has one of the best Ride Mode transformations.
Combiner mode. Transformation is the mirror equivalent of Chris Blued.
Compared to the others, this toy has a much simpler gimmick that just works, though you only get two ball bearings so you’ll have to source out six more to completely fill up the B-Da Unit.
