The battle arena's concave design facilitates action. View larger.
The Metal Fusion Battle Set relies on rip cord-powered launchers that propel two metal-rimmed tops into a specialized battle arena. Two tops, Lightning L-Drago and Storm Pegasus, are included in the set, and many additional Beyblade tops are sold separately.
The trick to Metal Fusion is to build a five-piece top with all the qualities necessary to outlast your opponent. The set contains both a left- and right-spinning top, so you can strategize and create collisions that slow down a fast-spinning top or boost a slower one. Kids will have to use their brains to work out the combinations of spin direction, height, wheel shapes, and tip types that ensure victory.
Strategize and create collisions with these specialized tops. View larger.
The Beystadium battle arena features a concave design that naturally directs each top into the center area where contact is inevitable. The battle arena is made of plastic, and though it's designed for conflict, its lightweight material may show wear and tear with extended rough play.
Several Play Options
Combatants can choose from several launch techniques to gain advantage over one another. For example, using the Sharpshooter technique, one player launches a top directly at its rival as it enters the stadium. Or using the Shield technique, players make their tops spin faster by launching them in alignment with the arena wall.
Rules of Battle help to ensure fair play, and advanced players can follow Power Spirit Rules to invoke five-second Launch Delay and the weak-hand Reverse Launch rule. With multiple play options, Metal Fusion will keep your kids engaged for hours.
What's in the Box
Metal Fusion Beystadium, two Beyblade tops, two assembly tools, two launchers, two rip cords, rule book, tournament tablet, two online code collector cards, and instructions.
Top Customer Reviews
There's a plastic arena (a bit flimsy but not bad), and the idea is that two players select their Beyblades (metallic tops) based on the arena style and on which Beyblade their opponent has selected. They insert the rip cords into the releasers, then mount their tops and, on the count of three, let 'em rip. The last top standing wins - but there are a few other ways to score points, and if someone misses the arena they lose.
Who wins each game has a lot to do with the "personality" of the top - different tops are weighted and shaped differently, and that affects their spin speed, their spin style, their spin endurance and their power relative to other tops. That means that all other things being equal, a given top has advantages over some and disadvantages over others, and may work better than some in some arena types and worse in others. There's a degree of skill here in selecting which top to use in which arena and against which player; there's also skill in deciding on an angle and trajectory of release. I imagine that with some experience and a range of different tops a given player could get very good at winning.
Having said that, with this particular set, the "Pegasus Storm" top tends to win almost every time over the "Drago" whenever both are properly launched (see attached video for proof!). You can, however, take them apart and rearrange the components to create a new set of Beyblades. Still, to really gain the benefit of this set and get a feel for the overall possibilities of the game you'd want to pick up a few more of the Beyblades.
This is my first introduction to the game. My kids liked it and I can see where it could really catch on, like a modern version of competition marbles (or, I'm reminded of Stompers - a battery powered truck you could pit against other trucks in monster truck style battles - that were popular when I was a kid). It would be a lot of fun at parties with a bunch of kids who each had their own set and wanted to play a tournament. The set includes "playoff" style cards so you can determine who wins in a runoff. Fun stuff. I know I would have loved these when I was a kid.

Update 12/16/11: Turns out these things do have staying power. I've been reading about how they have successfully re-introduced these toys and they are selling well. My son did go through a second round of playing with them and he reports others in his school have them, as well. So, it may be a good bet for a present.
