Pic fucking related, my brother and I probably got every blade from the original series up until G Revolution because of watching this shit on Toonami.
How well funded was this anime?
>G Revolution was 10 years ago
Damn it OP now I feel old
Those pieces of bricks had stats man. STATS.
I had a 3 attack 10 defense 5 speed
tfw cutting your fingers while trying to snap those pieces of plastic from the frame when building a Beyblade
I was more into Yu-Gi-Oh, but my little brother was crazy into both YGO and Beyblade.
I'd say Pokémon too, but I only spent money on the games and not on the merchandise.
saint seiya ,the fucking golden saints
>tfw Beyblades got banned from my school because kids constantly spun them into each others faces
Those shitty plastic stadiums are still in my closet back at my childhood home, fuck
Stuff like card games gets the fun police, but Beyblades get the fun SWAT team.
My school got Beyblades and all kinds of TCGs banned too.
Some guys even tried to wreck a teacher's car with Beyblades.
mfw I couldn't afford one of those so just used a fuckhuge bucket as an arena. It wasn't amazing but it got the job done
Me too. I was running an underground Beyblade tournament once in my school.
Man, I miss the good old days.
oh shit I REMEMBER this
I was 16 when beyblades came out, but you youngsters can probably relate to this
My school banned pokemon cards, then Yu-Gi-Oh cards then just went screw it and banned all trading cards of any kind because people kept losing/stealing/scamming them all the time.
None. I have never kept hobbies that drain my disposable income. Which is why I never play MMO's or do RMT in any game.
Hasn't Beyblade recently made a comeback?
Or at least, somewhat?
Samefagging here, but didn't B-Daman also get some reboot?
I earned 400$ playing WOW
I never really had access to that kind of money as a kid, my mom was pretty strict about making sure I understood the value of money so I really didn't end up spending tons on anything. Most I ever spent on anime related crap as a kid was Yu-Gi-Oh and that was probably only about 60 bucks of cards and 2 PSP games over my entire childhood.
Oh shit my school took it to a whole other level
>Be about 8-9 in a Catholic school
>All the bullshit kid phases come and go, then comes Beyblade
>Everybody trying to be like Tyson or Kai because of the anime so they all have Dragoon or Dranzer
>I have motherfucking Draciel because Max was OG as fuck and DAT DEFENSE
>My school wasknown for taking these fads too seriously but Beyblade was the tipping point
>Kids straight up sharpening their blades to be weaponised on the playground
>Kids are getting cut up left right and centre every recess
>Eventually teachers catch wind of this
>They think the Bit Beasts are something like satanic demons that convince us to harm others
>Beyblade gets banned from the school
>School bullies actively hunting down kids outside the school for money and food with their sharpened Beyblades
>Kids carry their blades still so as to be able to protect themselves
>mfw Draciel got me out of some tough situations
Shit was hardcore
I am happy for you. Do you want a cookie?
>mfw when I ended up buying a bunch of Yugioh cards last week out of sheer impulse.
Every time I get a package in the mail I die inside, and they're still coming. At least I got some cool looking cards out of it...
Did you miss the "as a kid" part of the thread. Generally children don't have 'disposable income', they just have whatever money their parents give them.
Beyblade Shogun Shit is the new one, yes. The series took a 5 year hiatus and just surged back with a new generation of gullible kids
youre a cartoon protagonist, man
I remember me and my friends having Blades that made sparks when hitting things, but in retrospect maybe they were some unofficial chinese rip-offs or something cause I live in some third world shit hole and a real company won't make fire hazard toys.
Seriously? I can't believe that it ever went that far, that sounds like the plot of some parody cartoon or a South Park episode parody of this stuff. I mean seriously, it's like your school almost recreated the actual fucking anime.
I've never actually owned a pokemon card or held one in my hand.
I had two of these fuckers. Both got stolen.
Fucking Crazybones were brutal in my same school, buddy. It all went to shit when a kid lost his entire collection in a bet on the playground and told his parents
I did not miss it. I meant what I said. Most of the time I never got any money from my parents. Even when I excelled in education, all I got was lip service.
I once had an album of the entire original set of them (every single card from the first edition releases) when I was a kid. I don't know if I still have it or not...
I had 5 of those fucking things, I was basically using them to prop up table legs.
FACT: If you didn't have the EZ Launcher your parents did not love you
Kids in my school started Yu-Gi-Oh dueling for lunch money (as well as each other's cards) shit got pretty serious.
Pokemon. The anime made me buy the games, cards, toys, VHS and DVDs, everything.
Now I just play the games, but the effects of the anime still linger.
I did not have the EZ launcher
>tfw when my parents did not love me
My soul is dead
I fucking LOVED Beyblade, I'd probably enjoy playing it even now. There's something very satisfying about watching spinning tops pulverise the shit out of each other.
I'm almost tempted to go and buy some now.
i happened to come across the new Beyblade while flipping through tv channels. There was something like a bad cg sideways beyblade. I can't believe I use to like this shit.
I had all the cards and the fucking thing that straps on to your arm. I can't remember once actually playing the game.
If you had beyblades your parents did not love you.
>There's something very satisfying about watching spinning tops pulverise the shit out of each other.
Yeah because there was less than a 10% chance of them colliding
I'm still a Pokemon fan to this very day
99% of YGO sales summed up
We used to spin ours against brick walls to make them spark.
Same shit here. I collected ridiculous amounts of the cards and also had that arm thing. I never once actually played against a person.
Hey, man, shit was fun as a kid.
This saddens me
i spent maybe a thousand on yugioh cards, according to a magazine with card prices my main deck was worth 600$
i made a couple kids cry when i beat them and took a card of my pick as prize.
I always tried so hard to get my family to play with me.
I enjoyed the recent Pokemon game but it felt too short. And too easy. I really enjoyed the pandering with the brown loli though (unless that was only in my imagination). Also, it made me tempted to watch the recent season of Pokemon.
Those never got as popular here, Dracco Heads was where it was at.
All we did was toss them against a wall, and whoever landed his closest to it won.
>tfw have a brother 2 years younger than me who always got into every one of those shitty fads with me
I love the guy, we still play pokemon over wifi at times
Pokemon and YGO.
Fuck, I had a gigantic binder full of Pokemon cards, plushes, stamps, a CD case with metallic coins, books, bed sheets, all the games and figures. I even saw the first movie five times. I lived in Hawaii at the time so imported Pokemon shit was everywhere.
>my gundam models were destroyed in the move to the mainland
Do a Nuzlocke run if you find it easy. Z will have great post game
I remember when kids use to play Yugioh cards in the school yard. No one played official rules and use duelist kingdom rules (you know catapult turtle launching monsters into flotation ring bullshit). One time one kid picked up his entire deck because of a normal card description and declared himself the winner.
>I even saw the first movie five times
Look at this sad, unloved fucker
Notice how a loveless childhood turns people bitter, unhappy, and inhuman
I had to deal with the biggest bullshit when I played that game. I remember playing one of those cards that lets me take control of my opponent's monster and all he did was say "nuh-uh my blue eyes resists your card because of our friendship".
My Beyblade was bootleg and literally exploded when it hit the wall one time
I even quoted some of the lines of the movie while it was playing. Fuck, I was an autistic faggot.
>"nuh-uh my blue eyes resists your card because of our friendship".
Anon you better have smacked his shit
My bootleg bayblade wrecked everything, it was ridiculous.
>that one guy with a bootleg deck
>I really enjoyed the pandering with the brown loli though (unless that was only in my imagination).
That shit was pandering. You can even make her call you onii-chan or senpai.
I really liked the game.
>you now remember Tamagotchis
>you now remember Yoyos
Strangely, I remember watching and discussing Yu-Gi-Oh and Bayblade, but never ever saw anyone actually playing that anywhere IRL.
Maybe we were already too old for that, but also never saw the young ones with that either.
I had one of those as well. I weighted like 2 pounds and just rammed everyone's shit way off the board we were playing on.
>go to a ghetto elementary school
>bring all of the digimon cards to school
>some black kid steals my page with all my Digi eggs
>steals an kid's entire collection
>he's crying because his dad gave him all his money to buy them
>black kid gives him his exact same binder back but with shittier cards
>nope, nothing suspicious at all
>bring Yugioh cards
>some try hard kid steals my Gate Guardian and sells it for $30
Fuck, remembering this shit makes me mad.
Just enough funding to buy big macs for the staff.
Nobody knew how to play any of those card games really. Duel Masters, Yu-Gi-Oh, Pokemon, we just got the cards and did something with them I guess.
I missed the big Pokemon and Beyblade fads because I was a poorfag
I managed to get into Yugioh for a while though
My childhood dentist was all the way in Flushing, NY, and every time after a check up I'd stop by this store/stand place that sold hobby stuff and I'd buy the most obvious knock-off shit in existence. I think I might have some cards still from those trips.
Build Fighters, except I'm not a kid
Fuck this shit. It came and went like three or four times in my school. I used to scam younger kids for rare cards.
Tyson > Yami/Yugi >>>>>>>>>> shit > Ash
Sometimes I get sad for wasting so much money on these figures. Especialy since I ended up loosing most of them, or got them stolen. Why didnt I buy Legos instead?
I was a Kaifag, but thinking back he really was an edgy faggot.
Alright well I might've been the only chump at my school that actually liked these things but they were the shit.
How does it's and Beyblade's anime even hold up if you were to watch them now?
Shit, I think I have one of these.
>Medabots was infinitely superior than all merchandise trap anime
>We just don't have the technology for robot fights
Why does it hurt so much, /a/?
I liked the original beyblade anime a bit still, but that metal beyblade dub actually hurt my ears it was so bad.
If I was 13 and owned Pepper cat. I would do very 13 year old things.
My brother traded 600 of my yu-gi-oh cards for a bottle of chicken stock.
I had like 20 blue eyes white dragons and all the god cards. Took my 8 year old self years to collect them.
Because it's not the 22nd century yet.
>school mats dad worked on a iron factory
>made his kid a razor shard metal thing on the bayblade
>the bayblade completely destroyed the others and cut then to shreds
>one of my school mates gets cut by the bayblade and had to go to the doctor to and sew his wound.
then, bayblade got banned and everyone hated that kid.
That fucking happened at my school.
Before it got banned, it was awesome.
>People would bring bowls or use water fountains or little areas to have beyblade battles
>Everybody had their own customized one
>THEN ONE FAGGOT GETS HURT
>They don't ban fucking dodgeball, do they
That'd be a cool plot for a grimdark reboot of the series in the future.
Why do you think giving children sentient robots with firearms is a good idea?
All these Kai-fags and Tyson-fags. I had a Driger. Now that was a real beyblade.
So long as they know robot safety it will be ok.
shitttt I had one of those with the VT chassis. Pushing the battery compartment backwards hoping it would spun like in the anime
Man I feel old
Where my duel masters bros at?
The Yugioh anime wasn't really aired here, so I had to settle with DM. Shit was great nonetheless
I remember playing this a little bit. It was pretty much a complete MTG ripoff IIRC.
Chicken stock, are you shitting me?
I still have an arena in my closet and my Galleon.
i still have a shitload of pokemon cards in a box. to bad i lost my original deck to the washing machine.
i cried that day.
The cursed washing machine. I personally had a glass of water on my nightstand when I was a kid, and the glass sweat and got to my Yu-Gi-Oh cards I just bought that day with a card I had been trying to get for ages. Completely destroyed em.
holy shit I'm dying
It was made by the same company to be an easier version of MTG.
MASTER RACE REPORTING.
My parents must have spent ridiculous amounts of money on Dragon Ball, Pokemon, Digimon and Beyblade.
What's the english name for pic related? This shit was pretty intense in my school. One day someone stole a large amount of them from my backpack, saddest day of my life.
A few years later someone stole a digivice from me, but I found the fag (my digivice was a bit fucked up before he stole it so it was easier to spot) and took it from his hands. Then I ran for dear life towards the teachers' room. Got there with only a few seconds to spare and started knocking on the door. The guy never did anything about it afterwards though.
I remember some asshole kid scammed me out of a blue eyes for some shitty cards in Japanese because he told me they had special abilities that I couldn't read or some shit.
I miss being retarded.
>Too old for Beyblade for when it aired on TV
>Never understood the craze
>At 22 years of age, my half-brothers are now 5 & 6 years old
>Go to their house for Christmas with some games for them
>They're opening their gifts up and they both start screaming like monkeys on helium
>It's a fucking beyblade box, has an arena in it and some other shit
>They run to their room and pull out from their closet a fucking HUGE box of beyblade stuff
>They spread their plastic caltrops from hell all across their carpet and start putting them together
>Try to figure out how to assemble one to play with them, they just laugh at me like some kind of freakshow
>One of them asks me if I even know how to have fun after I ask them if they want to play Kirby's Air Ride
>For the next five hours the words "LET IT RIIIIIP" can be heard in every corner of the house
>Step mother is cursing her father under her breath for buying more fucking beyblades for them
And that's how I learned how horrifying beyblades are
It was in a test tube some kid stole from the science lab. I raged so hard a threw his scooter into the gutter at night at someone stile it.
They are called pogs. I also remember a gun for them.
I remember telling lies about super rare yugioh cards.
"There is one card called Effect-Maker! And you can choose your own effect to make your opponent do anything!
Like if you battle a girl you can make her kiss you and she has to kiss you or give you all of her cards!"
>tfw it probably would have worked but I was 11 and too scared to touch girls
>he told me they had special abilities that I couldn't read
I fucking lost it.
these were my childhood
had the whole gundam wing and G gundam sets
Back in the day me and my friend were poor so we had to buy chinese knockoffs of everything.
I remember filling up my chinese Beyblade with plastiline and beating everyone.
sweet jesus, more stories like these please
Tfw cheap ass bootleg beyblades were way stronger and bulkier than the official ones (although I ended buying like 4 officla ones anyway).
Also I only liked the first season because I didn't like seeing the beyblade with that slow as fuck 3D animation that the next seasons had and the plot was becoming 2dark and edgy (even as a kid I didn't like retardedly dark stuff, come on, conquering the world with tops)
The money sucker anime for me was pokémon, I've spent probably 2k+ money on that shit..
You were that fucking faggot. I hated being the only person who actually knew how to play Yugioh, no one else read the rulebook at all. It was just summon as many bullshit monsters you had from your 2 dollar packet of fake cards.
>Also I only liked the first season because I didn't like seeing the beyblade with that slow as fuck 3D animation that the next seasons
Not to mention the cartoony art shift, it was retardedl.
>plastic caltrops from hell
Pic related, true measure of whether your parents loved you
i remember cheating a stupid kid to traded me pic related with 2 sub-par cards. later on, my best friend beg me to give him his card back but, i also got cheated a few days earlier so all i said was "tough luck" and kept the card.
Oh I knew how to play, I also knew how to lie though.
However, this one fucking kid battled me, and I didn't know he was autistic. Looking back I feel terrible.
>Battle him, just met him. He owned one of the card arm things in picture related.
>I manage to use a Blue eyes white dragon
>he tries to take it from me because "That's kaiba's card! Give it back to him."
>He thinks the people are real
>I tell him I saw Yugi behind the slide at the skatepark outside
>He goes over and looks for him
Fuck, playing with autistic kids hurts the soul.
That shit had some badass monsters.
I know it came a bit later, but how many of you ever played with Bdaman? Direct Hit Battles were the shit.
pokemon and doremi
That game seemed dangerous.
>tfw friend's whole room floor was covered in it.
>not dranzer F
>he told me they had special abilities that I couldn't read or some shit.
Holy shit kids believe the dumbest crap
The primary school hipsters had those shitty cards
Have someone even played Yugioh and Pokémon card games correctly with other friends anyway?
I only did a few time with my mid-school friends with Yugioh but we got tired since we had more or less always the same deck.
I had one of those but I preferred using a normal blanket that I'd put on my lap while watching my cartoons sitting on a 1 person couch. It was like driving up and down mountains.
did you steal some of his cards?
Bootleg beyblades were a thousand times more dangerous.
I used to, but I was the only one that built decks with any sort of thought process behind the construction so it wasn't fun for either of us since I'd wipe the floor.
There was one day where everyone was sucking this kids dick because he had red eyes black dragon and begging for him to trade it etc. etc. especially this one kid who doesn't know how to give up.
So he says "Sure, I'll give it to you if you fuck the wall in front of the cafeteria"
Then the kid got suspended for taking his pants off and humping the wall, I don't think he ended up getting the card either.
STEP ASIDE, PEASANTS
>never like medabots
I remember I had a Lightning Khan. That shit was badass.
Can't believe nobody posted this yet.
Of course not, the material was weaker and they didn't even have metal pieces.
>tfw I have a borther who is 4 years younger than me
>tfw we both got into each and every one of these fads
Those were the days, man. We sometimes talk about the stuff we used to play when we were younger.
Sorry, I meant regular beyblades with those heavy as fuck bootleg weight discs.
>mfw making super (strong) beyblades out of layered paper (glued)
I beat the shit out of the other kids.
Guess you never owned one of the ones with the comically large metal bits that stuck out far further than the rest of the beyblade. Mine also sung "It's a small world" while spinning.
I'M NOT GOING DOWN
I was stupid as fuck and wasted so much money gathering 1st generation cards. Had big piles of tradeable cards on pockets and forget them there, Became cellulose pulp in the washing machine. My face when did it couple of times
Awwwww shiet nigga, I had both the black one and the red one almost everybody at my school had one. I remember getting into a fight because a dumbass kid erased my save with a Rayquaza and other legendaries.
That fucking shit.
Always hitting your fingers and the balls going everywhere.
I've made well over 600 dollars from yugioh tournaments
I was like, 12-13, and the people who would play were your typical tryhard D&D neckbeards from the hobby shops.
basically there was prize money at the end made from entrance fees, but also if you lost a match people had to give you a holographic of their choice, and I often could sell their shitty holocards to other people in the tournament same day between matches
I only won 2-3 that I entered but typically placed 2nd or 3rd.
I never made money with Beyblade, but do you remember those fucking like 2lb after market rings you could by which were like 3 inches across? just massive hunks of metal that would keep your momentum going and literally shred apart other peoples beyblades.
A lot of people used glass pie dishes (lol) instead of the plastic domes because they were more durable and more concealable due to their size
They were slightly smaller than CDs right? In terms of diameter. I think we "forbid" those in my school for being too strong.
>medabots air for the whole summer in the mornings
>really hooked up, watch every episode
>school begins the day of the last episode
Wasn't I buttfrustrated about that
i played gogos
>Mine also sung "It's a small world" while spinning.
That's the most Chinese thing I've ever heard of
I remember having a lot of pokemon cards but never actualy playing the game.
I played the gb games to hell and back though.
3 2 1 LET IT RIIIIIIP
>Me and my friends are all into basically every Japanimation on a mainstream kids network at the time
>Shaman King is one of them
>One day my friend comes over to us in recess with a random piece of scrap metal
>Says that an older kid told him that the spirit of a knight was inside it and sold it to him for $10
>He spends the entire day yelling at a piece of metal to try and make an Oversoul
We're still friends to this day and we never let this shit go
Pokémon and Beyblade without a doubt. I was the king of both at my school since I had a holographic Charizard and a sick blade that nobody would beat.
Before I got the Charizard though I was majorly pissed, basically I had left my pokémon cards up on my personal shelf in school only to discover that my holographic Blastoise went missing somehow, Before that I saw a kid in my class destroying a holographic Blastoise with a coin. He basically scraped everything on the card off. He did it right in front of me too, but he said it wasn't mine so there wasn't much I could do since I hadn't confirmed if it was mine or not yet since I hadn't checked my shelf. When I then checked my collection to see if it was still there, it wasn't, but by that time the kid already went home.
Fuck you, Anton. Seriously. Piece of shit. Should've kicked the shit out of you.
I thankfully only bought videogames. The GBA games allowed me and my friends to play YGO without expending thousands on that shit.
I used to use a couple of those rings at once while strapped to this really cheap dollar store beyblade which was taller than normal, the only downside was its plastic was almost like a soft rubber, and I had to glue the top down to prevent it from popping off on impact
I miss the good old days of battle city. We even had faggots who would trick, cheat and steal rare cards off people.
I loved megaman so much, I bought this.
And then I left it at home during Hurricane Katrina
THOUGHT YOU PICKED UP MY NAME
BUT YOU FORGOT ABOUT MY HOME GAME
THOUGHT YOU COULD TAKE ME DOWN, SUCKA
TAKE ME DOWN NOW HERE WE GO
>Tfw living in poland
>Tfw living in greater poland, of all places
>tfw kids never play any games here, only smoking, bullying, fighting and molesting girls
I hate this country, and I still I got lotta Yugioh cards I never got to use
Ah man I just remembered having all three starter evolution cards and I'd do this sick combo (which wasn't technically allowed but this Pokemon magazine I used to buy told me it was) in where I'd give Blastoise many energy cards at once in one turn, use Venusaur to transfer them to Charizard so he'd burn them and then do 100 damage each turn.
> I used to have a lot of Medabots figures
> i had to give them to charity thanks to school so i could get extra credits for being a lazy fuck
Also, a bit unrelated but someone knows if any group subbed the Japanese version of medabots? ( i heard there was sound efect censorship and some scenes omited) or at least where to get the series in something higer than 360p? my colombian google realy isn´t helping.
Reminds me of the digivices you had to shake constantly to get your digimon to do anything.
I can't breathe
Did anyone ever buy a pack of Shaman King cards? They were kind of neat.
I remember back when Pokemon was first becoming popular, I heard a rumour that in China big trucks would go through the streets and give Chinese kids free Pokemon stuff. I was pretty jealous of those Chinese kids.
this shit had to be saved
did they release metabots any higher than 360p?
the teaching in my grade 2 class confiscated an arcanine card and was going to give it back at recess
when I go to get it back it magically turned into a tangela
"this isnt my card"
luckily a girl spoke up about how this fat fuck named travis was sitting on it and swapped them off the teachers desk
that kid was instantly unpopular with everyone for being an honorless pigdog
you should have beat up anton
I used to put some paper to make it shoot stronger.
>tfw I broke a kid's pinky with one of the bdashot
>Says that an older kid told him that the spirit of a knight was inside it and sold it to him for $10
Sometimes I hate and love humanity at the same time
Why the fuck don't they make an app like skannerz but for Digimon?
IS THAT SO MUCH TO ASK?
I remember being so excited when I got this.
You had to shake these things too.
Was that the piece of shit one that was horribly inorganised? I remember being so mad at one of them
Holy moley that made my day
>that feel when built those and zoids
>then parents decide to donate them to good will
It hurts the most when they do it behind your back while you sit blissfully unaware at school. It is one of those things that make you unable to trust people.
Maybe? if not here, Japan must have an 720p DVD version of something, i would buy it.
Mah nigga, can't feel any mojo from other blades even the magnet Dragoon doesn't feel right. Draciel is best and his four balls of steel
my dick is diamonds
These, pokemon, and yugioh were my shit as a kid.
>Any kind of ball game was banned because some dumbfuck broke the teacher's coffee cup when playing football
>Pokémon/Yu-Gi-Oh/whatever cards banned because kids would sold them to one another
My guess is that they will ban running for the next generation since children might fall and hurt themselves. Fucking control freaks.
Oh man, I got the red one all the way to the left. Good times, I think I almost got Ujalu once. Too bad today people could cheat by making a page filled with bar codes
>Any kind of ball game was banned because some dumbfuck broke the teacher's coffee cup when playing football
How could they even do that? My school would have parents protesting day one, and they would have som serious problems with keeping control over the kids.
Don't worry, jokes on them, it's still worthless and unreadable by normal humans
I'm not sure, I lived in the middle of nowhere so I guess parents were happy enough to have a teacher (the school was closed soon after I moved out).
>stage 2 with coin flip and one time use power
check that again, son, you got took instead.
Yu-Gi-Oh cost me a crapton of money.
I still buy cards sometimes when I happen to see some appealing sets in a store.
>that beautiful day my Legendary Collection 1 arrived
Childhood dreams were fulfilled that day.
I hate what has become of them
I had a ton of those things. They where pretty cool.
Bdaman still airs here. Or actually it's airing again.
So is the original Yu-Gi-Oh!
Right here, nigga, edgemaster+. Nigga was too tight but fucking powerful that it keeps ricocheting to opponent faces or breaking the stage. I broke off the arms cause the tightness of it laucher
W-What has become of them, Anon?
fuck you, its fine
even if they were, its not like anyone back then actually knew how to play the game
rules were too confusing for target audience without help from other players
I had an EZ lawn chair but I preferred the small one
Kids kept getting ripcords in the eye at my school and daycare. I once tried to demonstrate how that was impossible to my mom and it happened to me. I think that was the first time I've ever toughed something out to save face.
My parents bought me some weird bootleg kit for my beyblades that came with weighted spark rings. THAT shit was crazy. The plastic was shit though.
I played ygo but we were all unaware of tributing monsters. When I rediscovered the game I was so confused.
One of my friends traded a retarded kid two years younger than him a couple years back a bunch of shitty Agents for a Maxx C when it was big.
man I had Metabee, Sumilidon, Cynadog, and Rokusho. I even had a stdium but I was the only kid who even watched Medabots. YTV hyped that show for months.
dont speak of that.
Now does anyone know pic related? I swear my elementary school was the only one in my end of the city that played with these. The fucking explosive Jax kept breaking but I managd to trade them to idiot kids for better ones.
Also beyblade started airing here again too.
>tfw they're just airing the same shit every 8 years
Hero factory. You hate it. I will hate bionicle on /toy/. Fuck nostalgia.
>not enjoying hero factory for what it is, ie a kids show
Overdose on your nostalgia over bionicle.
Does the song sound like that in English?
I only know the Dutch dub, that's the edgiest shit mate.
BEYBLADE BEYBLADE LET IT RIP LET IT RIP LET IT RIP
I got a set of these badass motherfuckers for Christmas. It was a kid's wet dream.
It was this fucking huge ass dinosaur thing and its jaws moved when you squeezed its neck or something because of the magic of rubberbands. Shit was so cool.
You had to start it huh.
Anybody remember the yoyo ball ?
It was banned because some kid got strangled with it.
Elevens just know how to rob kids and adults
>some kid got strangled with it
Holy shit I'm crying
Oh fuck here I go. The anime was Let's & Go.
About 4WD mini car, we (my brother and I) used to spend all of our allowance to buy, customize and all those shits.
there was another one which would lurch its head forward and just bash, had these like, slug things under the masks and were designed to roll around like droidekas
Had two of those, as well as some really really oldschool technic which I used to build this rediculously destructive creature all together
people didn't like playing with me much, I wasn't a retard.
I went around and hit people in the face with it.
Shit was cash
Yu-Gi-Oh was big at my elementary school.
>somehow got my hands on Relinquished (I completely forget how but I know I didn't find it in a pack)
>nobody knew how to actually play the game so we always did it by anime "rules"
Same thing with one of my friends and Toon World.
We all collected Pokemon cards too but nobody gave a shit about the game, we all just wanted to let everyone know that our card could kick everyone else's cards' asses. I made friends with a guy in like kindergarten through him telling me he had a secret mew card and then he made my life miserable for years
I have this one, it's fucking badass
>kid got strangled with it.
what kind of school did you go to?
but yeah, those were fun
but its hero factory, therefore bad right.
They were banned here because they had poisonous shit inside of them.
Get they more and more spikes?
>have a shit ton of yu-gi-oh cards (2 different dark magicians, a dark magician girl, blue eyes white dragon, pyramid of light (movie exclusive), blue eyes shining dragon (movie exclusive), I think a Relinquished, tons more)
>end up selling them for 60 bucks
fucking sucked, I could have gotten way more
>Elevens just know how to rob kids and adults
Truly they are the greatest conmen of our time
It's a huge motherfucking robot, how can it be bad?
They were all fucking faggots, the lot of them.
It's actually a good rap
did anyone actually play this?
the show was brilliant though.
Relinquished was the shit. I remember once I went to a card shop and was about to buy a Relinquished second edition card but then I said fuck it and just got a regular first edition pack. Inside the pack was Relinquished and I just started spazzing out right there in the shop.
>he never asked his parents for toys
Were your parents nazis?
>what ya' gonna do
>what ya' gonna do when I steal your pickachu!
The show was hilarious and had a big-titted girl I masturbated to frequently as a tween.
Wasnt that the show were the dub was a huge selfparody?
Yeah, i think one was something like:
>Cue giant overly dramatic CG animation of one of the monsters
>"Wow! Why doesn't that happen all the time?"
>"It depends on the budget the animators have for the episode."
>"Come on, Protag! We believe in you!"
>I don't think he ended up getting the card either.
I love this game.
Best fucking expansion names.
>>Try to figure out how to assemble one to play with them
>he never had toys that you had to assemble
Did you ever even get toys? Practically fucking every toy I owned had to be put together except for action figures.
>tfw I watched Yugioh Abridged
>I understand they're doing a parody of the show, but what the fuck, did that actually happen
>Watch the first season of yugioh
>HOLY SHIT THIS IS HILARIOUS
The show was so fucking ridiculous.
Now for something unrelated.
Show me your favourite Hero Factory.
The 1st, 4th, and 6th(?) gen bionicles are pretty cool.
I dont mind being nostalgia goggled for plastic that I wont ever buy again.
I'm unaware it had a show.
Is this some /toy/ thing? First time seeing hero factory mentioned ever.
I remember watching Yu-Gi-Oh on Kids WB and being too poor to afford Yu-Gi-Oh cards. So I'd take the Pokemon cards my big brother gave me and pretend they were Yu-Gi-Oh cards. Looking back I did a lot of shit like that as a kid.
must have been difficult when none of your cards can hit the 200 defense mark
Why are kids such dishonest thieves?
And yes, I should have beaten the shit out of him. I mean it's probably... I don't even know how many years ago it was, maybe 14-15, but I'd still kick the shit out of him for it.
Could you have beaten the shit out of him?
I was a small and skinny dude and the other guy was huge, even though he was a year younger. I just "stole" what was mine from his hands and ran away.
I'm this guy >>101402926
>Why are kids such dishonest thieves?
consumerism and the income gap
Oh shit I still have my Pokemon tazos. Those were good times.
I think we were pretty much the same size, not sure though. It was a pretty long time ago after all. I was the strongest in our class too... so I probably could have, but I was too much of a pussy I guess.
I always lost my favorite ones because I took them with me everywhere.
metalgreymon, where are thou
All tht remains ;_;
all I have left is Drillmon with one of hands missing
why didn't I take better care of them, I'm sorry mom
I got this when I was 5, and then I sold it to a friend in middle school for $2.
Nowadays this thing can go up to $200 in eBay
I used to be that kid. I bought those bootleg Chinese cards with 5000 hp and traded 1 bootleg for at least 5 legit cards.
Ash's adventures jewed my childhood
I still have some Pokemon cards and a bunch of ripoff Yugioh cards.
Me too, the plot went completely fucktarded after generation 3 or so
and in b4
uck you guys i liked the plot i played the shit out of that mata nui adventure game
Damn, I had one of those, it was so fucking cool but I could never figure out how to operate it.
When I was a kid I knowingly bought a fake Chinese Beyblade set. It had a huge, awesome, weight disk. I used it with a legit top and bottom, it wreaked shit.
Anyone else spent a fuck ton on those mini 4WDs with AA batteries and no remotes?
Holy fuck those were baller.
this show is the father of all the abridge shows that we have today.
zoids and all of the above where my childhood
the fucking metal ones were the shit
i still have hundreds of these things. lost some of my favourites for the same reasons but still most live on
This, would rekt the shit out of everyone.
Had a bunch of fake Yu Gi Oh cards that I used to cheat. I had a card that was full exodia in one card and I had like 15 of them in my deck. I told my friends it was a new Exodia card and they believed it.
I wish I had something like that in my childhood.
Instead I got mud sand and wood.
I have eighty-percent of the entire line.
I fucking loved zoids. I had blade liger, Elephander. liger zero with it's jager armor, and command wolf.
Damn Japan can't into computers else we could have gotten some neat mechwarrior/zoid multiplayer games back then.
I cried when they stopped making Zoids, cause I spent my childhood telling myself; "When I grow up, I'm going to have an awesome collection."
By the time I could buy my own they had been gone for 3 years.
Now even at cons the only ones I can find, if any are those lame overpriced Kotobukiya models.
Come back my childhood, you were awesome!
I also have at least a few thousand in pokemon merch/card/and games that I've collected over the years. Mostly due to my card collection, which numbers around 2,000 cards and still going, and all the games I've owned.
I had 5 gold cards, at least a dozen tins, various BK toys (I used to have a ton of em), even some Japanese stuff.
I couldn't even begin to guess how much all of my pokemon stuff cost because there's a bunch of stuff I don't have anymore.
>strive to be the Best Duelist there is
>gamble with friend to get Blue Eyes Shining Dragon
>I lost, So I give up 3 of my cards
>He gives me the Blue Eyes Shining anyway
>feel empowered, ask for a duel to any schoolmates
>"sorry man, we grew tired of it, we knew your Blue Eyes deck is filled with Hacks like White Night Dragon, White Horned Dragon, Gene-Warped Warwolf, Swords of Revealing Light and some bullshit trap cards"
>tfw my Quest for Blue Eyes Shining is useless
>mod attack ring just into plain circle
>beat the shit out of every designed attack rings
game sure is balanced
I once took four of the metal rings and glued them together. That thing was basically a fucking wall that could destroy any beyblade.
>all kids in school have one of those original beyblades
>my father bought me a fake one because poorfag
>felt pretty bad
>other kids make fun of me
>mfw and school mates faces after it turned out to be some highly dangerous chinese knock-off that literally ripped the original ones apart
I remember being into this pretty big. I even watched the anime, one episode they were having an epic battle and the MC was literally crying his eyes out over his blade.
Dad just comes in on that scene is like
>why the fuck is he crying over a spinning top?
ah, they could never put a dent to my bathroom.
Any Bandai product that had an anime drained me
I was already in High School when Beyblade got popular and you little shits were running with those things. I feel old.
Haha, grandpa. Old fart.
that fucking mewtwo. Holy shit son
>that fucking pic
I thought I was seeing a detached head covered in blood, fuck you.
This is all that remains now. HMS was the best.
My brother had one of those. It was so heavy that letting it rip from to high would break the tile floor.
>Some bastard did this to me, but with cards in english, bc i'm from latin america
WELL I CAN'T BE FOOLED ANYMORE
I swear to god those beyblades were made out of osmium or something. One kid came crying to my mother after this beyblade of mine destroy his original one.
>not playing superior b-daman
after all these years I still have myne.
me and my cousin bought chinese knockoffs that had some weird shit on the metal that made sparks those things where heavy as fuck they broke some other peoples beyblades and fucking hurt when you where hit by them
Anyone knows the name of some toys that were a crossover between bdaman and beyblade? Like they were normal robots, but you could take their legs out and use the spine cord on them so make them go hyper fast.
I almost blinded some kid with this. I had like 10 garuda eagles throughout my childhood because I kept throwing them like they did in the anime.
I still have that exact model in a box somewhere.
Cyber Dragoon is best Bit Beast.
If you disagree you are objectively a faggot.
The Crush Gear toys are always a disaster waiting to happen.
Shit man, I always wanted one of those.
I had pic related though. I still have it too and it's fun as shit.
Normal Dragoon for me and Draciel or whatever the green one with the turtle is called
Driger a shit
that reminds me the Digimon Tamagochi thing I had, how did it work?
AWWWWW SHIT I HAD ONE
i could never learn how to use it
I had some Chinese beyblade that was basically 3 small Beyblades in one cord, and when I LET 'EM RIP, it'd send all three flying. Like all Beyblade knockoff, they had a metal ring that destroyed everything.
I miss mine so hard.
motherfucking digimon transformables. BEST TOYS EVER. I believe I still have my gabumon-metalgarurumon.
Always wanted one of those too. Had one of these instead.
>years ago, as kids, we hold an open BeyBlade tournament with a couple friends during summer where other kids living nearby could participate using our tops
>while checking out one of the friends' Dranzer F it slips from my hand and lands bottom down on the ground which leads into one of its 3 bases breaking (something that happened to everyone that owned this) in a peculiar shape
>play it cool and pretend nothing happened, friend has no idea
>tournament goes on, ends, everybody has fun
>while verifying the tops we realize Dranzer F is missing
>we all flip our shit, but then we remember who used it and we decide to play detective
>somehow someone points out that the kid who used it lives in the next building
>we ask questions and describe him to get his apartment number
>knock on the door, he opens (with the top in his hand)
>I start questioning him and build up pressure, he cracks and one thing he says about how he got the top doesn't match the other, finally I grab the top and show its base, pointing out at the peculiar shape
>kid is flabbergasted and starts stuttering, my friend takes back her Dranzer and we go off
And that was the only instance in the history of mankind where Dranzer F's shitty base served a purpose.
BeyBlade was some great shit.
Why did I buy all of this shit and then never play with it? Just trade unto oblivion.
I actually had the digimon tamogachi thing too, but I never figured out how to work that one. With the pokeball, you had to move it around to "balance" the lights as they popped up or something.
and you could catch the pokemon only at the right time. I really want to go dig this out of my closet now and play it.
and now I need to rewatch the Digimon Movie...or Summer Wars
What happened to you, /a/?
I had Ray's original Drigger, Tyson's last Dragoon blade he got before V-Force. Kai's original Dranzer, a Master Draciel, and I got Ray's launcher with the red tiger face on it. Now for my story.
>Me and my friends used to play Beyblade all the time. They paid out for the dish, I had more beyblades. Couldn't beat my friend because they had the cool remote control ultra spinny beyblades.
>Train for days
>Bey-battle again and do Tyson's running and twist jump rip from like episode 1 (Tyson does it here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DSKdMfRTCMU) with my Drigger and my launcher "LET IT RIP".
>Feel as if my whole life led to this moment.
>Feel like a boss and my friend is like sucking my dick because of it.
>One kid we hung out with was a bit older than me and thought I was an idiot.
>Didn't care, best beyblader on my street.
Shit was cash.
I miss being young.
Oh fuck off. There's a difference between blogging about our lives and reminiscing over the old anime and associated toys we used to enjoy.
Also speaking of Pokemon cards, I had this thing and wasn't it pretty much a free win or just an incredibly annoying card unless they had stuff benched? I always treated it like it "dispelled" evolutions.
I went through a lot of the fads, all the card games and video games. My parents were pretty generous with buying video games and cards, but they put their foot down on Beyblades.
They probably made the right call, now that I look back on it, the game didn't really make any sense, at the very least Yugioh and Pokemon teach you some level of shitty skill on risk management and 3rd grade math or some shit, but Beyblade was pulling a cord and hoping things worked.
Looking at this thread, I might've avoided some brutal top-related injuries too.
>One time one kid picked up his entire deck because of a normal card description and declared himself the winner.
That shit is high level play right there
I'm fucking speechless.
Ray gave me a long hair fetish and funny feelings in my dick
I never knew other kids who where into toys, collecting or games so I was always getting into these without having someone to play this. Even when I got one of those huge metal rings from chinese bootlegs that I added to my original beyblade I never got to use it against other kids and just battled alone with my other beyblades. In the bright side, the beyblade with the huge metal ring was a beast.
i always wondered if those special ability beyblades actually worked. I don't think ball bearings or that metal thing inside the core ever did anything.
>the anime starts airing in my country, but the toys themselves aren't sold yet, however knockoffs are already there
>most of us boys in class are excited as fuck to play some real beyblade, but we have no idea when they'll get imported
>we resort to making tops out of nuts by inserting toothpicks into them and secretly fight with those during class
>rich friend goes to foreign country and buys a real Draciel
>everybody excite as fuck
>due to the excitement he loses control and lets it rip, yelling
>the top flies at 1000km/h, narrowly avoiding the heads and faces of 3-4 kids, and slams to the wall
>it's still intact
>a kid buys one of those infamous Chinese knockoffs
>another kid has a different type of knockoff
>they fight it out
>they break parts out of each other but one of them gets rekt big time
>the kid whose beyblade that one was feels smug as fuck, spins the blade with all his strength then touches it to stop it for some reason
>his fingers start bleeding
>get a brand new shiny Wyborg
>got a spring-shooter
>blading with some friends
>launch Wyborg at full speed with the variable base setting
>the other top moves around just a bit but Wyborg goes apeshit and slams into it
>it explodes into its entire internal components like a frag grenade
>mfw it wasn't damaged and it's fine after reassembly
>get magnet base pack for the thin yellow plastic stadiums, a magnetic Dragoon comes with it
>experiment with the magnets to find maximum crazy spin
>create a mix of that dragoon and Wolborg 2 and use spring launcher to throw it
>it bounces all around the stadium and rips big chunks of yellow plastic apart before flying off
How did anyone I know not die while playing BeyBlade is a mystery to me.
No one spent money on those shitty bandai's saint seiya toys? I had like half of the golden saints.
Pic related. Not to be mixed with the high end and new ones.
>beyblade being an old anime
How old are you fuckers?
>Like if you battle a girl you can make her kiss you and she has to kiss you or give you all of her cards!"
Oh jesus, im dieing
I once traded a somewhat rare card for a Pidgeotto. I've only seen like 2 of those cards in my entire life.
I don't think I ever got to see a Pidgeot.
22. Beyblade was my last fad.
>mfw Draciel got me out of some tough situations
Holy shit, you guys literally ripped over stuff like bullying and had to fight back with your own?
You lucky son of a bitch, you were a PROTAGONIST anon.
fuck saint seya. I never liked it because Death mask is the shittiest. Being cancer was suffering when everyone liked Saint Seiya. Looking back, it was actually kind of nice, because now I don´t have nostalgia glasses covering up the shit that is the entire series.
I had a bunch of these but for some reason no pidgeys
The Irish ladies and gentlemen
At least it's not Tauro, everyone gets cool powers and all he does is push people away and lose against anyone relevant.
Yugioh's the only one I've spent money on. Around $7000 at last count. I never grew out of it and only stop playing after banlists if there's no new deck that I care about. Speaking of, I should watch yesterday's episode.
I had one and I always assumed it was just some sort of Chinese knockoff toy, I had no idea this was actually an anime
Fucking tazos. FUCKING TAZOS. People were murdering each other over these.
holy fuck these i had so many of them and the action figure kind as well i think i still have them at my parents house
Oh yeah, carrying on from my story
>Thought Drigger was real and he helped me win my battle
>Some sort of "Believe in the heart of the cards bullshit"
>Said my friend didn't believe in his bitbeast enough.
I was chuuni as fuck, holy shit.
I also had a knockoff given to me for Christmas it was absolutely fucking massive. Played Jingle Bells and flashed as it span. Was too massive to use and too weighty. Nearly wrecked a friend's blade using it so it was banned when we played.
Nah, Taurus was a bro at least, Death Mask was weak and was a petty loser. Also, no one in Saint Seya has cool powers, it´s just "LASER BEAM CONSTELLATION VARIATION!!!"
Played kids and they'd pull 3 random cards from their deck and I took one as a prize when I won
took a kids blue-eyes and felt bad so gave it back
Instadeath isn't cool? Pity it was kinda counter productive against the final boss and pity he was a douche.
beyblades were some serious shit
Did you guys roleplay as characters with your friends?
I wanted to be Matt but my friend decided I was Izzy. My friend was the leader of our group I guess, and he also had a younger sister, so he was Taichi.
BECAUSE THE TOP IS HIS SOUL DAD!!
You could be pisces and be labelled a faggot.
Saint Seiya was the shit, first time seeing a punch pierce trough someone was insane for myself. They even gave out the Lucifer movie in VHS at the local drugstore when you bought some ammount of stuff.
I also had some Yoroiden Samurai Troopers armors similar to pic and Shurato's VHS
I'm talking about Digimon here, by the way.
A number of them didn't work. Or at least, not as intended. See, Dranzer F's changing bases do work and make the top spin differently, but it's so fragile that you'll obligatorily rek your top before using it to full potential. I mean I've seen a friend buy one and break one or maybe even 2 of the bases in the very day he bought them. Some bases worked fantastically, like Wolborg 2's blue spinning plastic base. Dranzer S' thin metal base was also pretty based if memory serves right.
The ball bearings did also work I think, but I never had a Draciel so I never could "lab test" it.
The small metal rings inside the spin gear or whatever it was worked according to which top you were using, IIRC; for some the shift in weight would be irrelevant, for others it would yield slightly different results.
>took a kids blue-eyes and felt bad so gave it back
Mate, I know many people who wouldn't have given that back. If anything I look up to you for that for being the bigger man when you were younger. Good job, /a/non.
>How old are you fuckers?
1995 I was born, 19 now. Beyblade came out 13 years ago, /a/non. It's a lot older than you think
you'll never know how it felt to be banned from beyblading with these despite them being lighter than beyblades, since I could crank it and release, they started with so much more spinning power and could 1v1 regardless of the size I chose and come out on top 4/5 times even against bootleg rings
Death Mask was a great villain, he was simply a psycho that saw nothing wrong with his acts.
It takes Shiryu an insane amount of effort to fight him and in the end he loses only because his own armor betrayed him.
Pisces was the worst by far, he was a reskinned Scorpio.
My friends did some ridiculous mix between Dragonball and Digimon that made no sense. Some older made fun of us once on the playground so we sort of just... beat him up. He weren't tough or anything but you get enough small children together and you can take down just about anything that isn't a Lovecraftian beast.
I still hang out with the guys to this day, but I'm the only one who still does roleplaying games. I actually attribute those kiddy games to me being on a playwriting scholarship now.
I had one of those too. Fuck It wasn't any good against my Drigger though.
We've had competitions like Robot Wars, Robo-ONE, and Battle Bots for years, but it's mostly just "flip/ring out the opponent to win".
>mfw I had that orange beyblade with a spring in the tip
>mfw I went to my city's Japantown, bought a Japanese Yugioh pack, and pulled a Japanese Catapult Turtle around the same time the infamous floating castle episode aired
>mfw I was among the first 5 people in my school to catch Mewtwo; the only one to do it in Blue
Fuck. I miss being a kid.
>all those toys
>the music casettes/CDs
seriously I'm probably at the oldest age where you shouldn't feel too awfully ashamed of owning one at some point
Well they are not beyblades and hence have no place in blading, son.
You'd think that a game involving spinning tops, jews would come out on top.
you're just mad because you couldnt launch your beyblades sideways and kick the other guy out of the arena before he lands
its not like they practice often, they're too cheap to gamble on their dradles
>mfw I was among the first 5 people in my school to catch Mewtwo; the only one to do it in Blue
But there was this one older kid who somehow had caught a Mew in Pokemon Green or someshit. I've seen it with my own eyes but only once. He became some sort of a legend, his story passed onto younger classes as we got older.
I blame digimon and medabots for my robot girl fetish.
I also remember having one of those beyblade knock offs that were mostly metal, I always tried to drop them on top of other kids beyblades.
My -religious- school banned Yugioh cards because they thought it was against religion because it had 'gods' in it, and like it was some sort of gambling.
God, the kids at the time had some pretty funny rumors which were but not limited to:
-The were possessed
-When you burned them, red smoke would start coming out and it'd spell "SATAN"
-Accidents happened were monsters actually came out of the cards
-Some of them actually swore they saw some of that stuff happen
The 'religious' and uptight kids started campaigns about it, the teachers were severely against it,
So it was dark ages all over again, those kids would make patrols looking for anyone who had cards, and anyone got caught would be handed over to the teacher.
I swear i saw in lunch-break a kid get busted then got dragged to a teacher while crying to their fullest like they were going to get crucified.
It was both horrible and hilarious to watch.
We have this.
Actually, dodge ball is banned in most places.
Too bad Japanese barcodes are the only good ones.
>Fuck. I miss being a kid.
i know that feel
DM > Yugioh
One of my friends stole my Bolshack Dragon. He was a cunt.
>like it was some sort of gambling.
To be fair, when trading card games started out, there was a gambling component.
Holy shit this is funny. I wonder how Pokemon would fare with these rules.
When I was 10 the pokémon hype started dying down, but I still liked it. Known as the Pokemon Master in our school. We had this thing last period on Friday called Golden Time which lasted anywhere between 15 minutes to an hour depending on whether we were good during the week. A kid brought in his Pokémon Red and asked if I could catch his Mewtwo without a Masterball. I take the challenge 15 minutes go by, finally catch it in an Ultra Ball. He's absolutely fucking tripping shit because he's finally caught Mewtwo. I never let slip that on my Pokémon Blue I was a retarded kid who just trained one Pokémon up and could never beat the Elite Four with my 78 Charizard and my other Pokémon caught in the safari zone that were never trained up. The only way I could have trained was to battle the Elite Four over and over again and lose because of no trainer re-battle system.. It was also that year that my Pokémon Ruby got stolen in class and I still believe it was this fat bitch who was poor as fuck. I should have said something to her. I had a level 100 Kyogre on there, damnit. Ah well, she ended up having a baby at 15 and dropping out of school. The stupid fucking moron.
Fuck you Natalie, you stupid bitch.
No one actually did gambling.
Being the huge Tokusatsu fan I am today, I want to beat the younger me so badly for being a spoiled little shit with these things. This one, the Time Force one, the Lost Galaxy one, and the Turbo one. All broken beyond repair within 2-3 months.
Sensationalist parents don't care.
Never played Pokemon, does it have such god tier flavor text?
>stopped making zoids
Faggot it's still in production. Also. Not your fucking personal blog.
>It was also that year that my Pokémon Ruby got stolen in class and I still believe it was this fat bitch who was poor as fuck. I should have said something to her.

Hah, this is pretty good.
Pokemon and yugioh
The fake can defeat the original anon.
I know your feel, dude.
I only had Fenrir and Shiryu. Fuck, i missed them so fucking bad.
Actually, damn, looking back at those times, my parents would buy me all that shit i wanted, and we weren't exactly 'rich'....
Let's & Go mini cars
Related merchandise to all of that shit too
Not for me, /a/non. I was so fucking hurt by it it was unreal. My friends joked that it fell into my teacher's mug of tea and he drank it. (He was "keeping it safe" for me. It was his fault it was stolen.) He didn't even give a shit either. I swarmed the Elite 4 using Sheer Cold and fucking Water Spout and all that other shit.
HAHAHAHA THAT'S FUCKING BRILLIANT MATE
CAN WE GET AN ANIME OF THIS? FUCK ME
I FUCKING LOVE AMERICA
It has pokedex entries which are kind of like the same thing
For example Haunter (Its tongue is made of gas. If licked, its victim starts shaking constantly until death eventually comes)
My Haunter didn't have this sort of grimdark decription
beyblades got banned from my school because me and a group of friends had ones with metal on them, and we used to hit them against the ground and got them to spark. shit was so funny, people thought we were going to light the school on fire.
This is actually one of the greatest OPs ever created.
I'm not even trolling.
I was enjoying this thread but now I'm feeling depressed.
I feel like I'll never be so interested in something as I was back then.
My teach ripped my alpha Black Lotus.
Maybe they thought it was a Blacker Lotus.
Holy shit, I forgot about that pink haired q.t. until I saw this again
Its the best OP for a spinning top anime ever
SHINNING DOWN ON YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
i know that feel fucking nostalgia man
Just remembered for something else to add about my Beyblade story. I used to fucking love the anime right? Had the total hots for Mariah. I was like 8 and I wanted to marry her. Babies first waifu? It's probably why I like Minami so much from Baka to Test. (Even if my now permanent waifu is Hinagiku from Hayate)
>the shitstorm when Kai joined the other team
i know now it's one of the most overused cliches but back then kids were shitting bricks
>tfw the hard metal system beyblades first came out
>tfw they literally broke apart the older ones you had
I HAD THESE ON MAPS
THEY WERE THE GREATEST
Unbelieveable shit taste for something with such a great, nostalgia-filled music.
Get some taste, son.
had some of them but never really cared for them other than play fighting with my brother.
> tfw the best beyblade i had i got from a kellogs box.
It was so OP for a knockoff, it broke so many beyblades
man the new cards look like shit
dude I stopped collecting 12 years ago, that's those old scan cards at the bottom.
the old new cards look like shit
Please tell me I'm not the only one who loves "when we were young and stupid" threads like this.
There's something heartwarming about seeing all of us bitter lonely shut-ins recall our childhoods as bright shotas before we all became /a/nons.
They are nice occasionally and as long as people don't end up like http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5pa6SGYWADU
This show was hilarious but i remeber it most ofr that god forsaken addicting Ps2 game i sunk hours into. JUST WHEN I WAS ABOUT TO BEAT IT,BOOM IT BREAKS
Fuck i loved that game and cried when it went away
>Please tell me I'm not the only one who loves "when we were young and stupid" threads like this.
I love them too, /a/non. It's a pity the rest of /a/ looks down on these kinds of threads. It's something only "night /a/" can get away with.
>There's something heartwarming about seeing all of us bitter lonely shut-ins recall our childhoods as bright shotas before we all became /a/nons.
This. Man I fucking hate my life. I wish I could go back to having the purity of a child. I would give anything to be about 7 again. Heck. I wouldn't mind going full chuuni, but alas, I am not retarded enough to go full chuuni.
Ever had this, /a/?
We only got the rectangular ones.
My brother got a cool clear red one.
I got a shitty lemon yellow one.
>stay up all night looking after your digimon as it's about to evolve
>turns into Numemon at 6 in the morning
This wasn't original Beyblade but it was still original characters. I just randomly clicked it myself. This show was mad hax.
I wanted to see how one of those were ever since I saw it at the Digimon World game. Was it like a tamagochi?
My mother would never buy me the red bionicle every time new series came out I always got the pussy blue and green one. In primary school we though that the serial number was power points so me and all my friends were convinced that the red one was superior
Like Tamagotchi cock fighting.
It's been fun reminiscing with you /a/, but it's 20 to 3 here and I have college in the morning.
Goodnight /a/. I wish all your dreams of becoming 7 year olds come true.
>but it's 20 to 3 here and I have college in the morning.
Exact same here, im off, night night!
I remember a kid made his own with fucking paper, it was hilarious.
>Was big into Yu-Gi-Oh
>Bought the Dawn of Destiny game for the Xbox
>it came with the Dark Sage and the Winged Dragon of Ra
>Kid from school i met comes along to check the game
>was even more into YGO than i was
>asks me to lend him my game
>Never saw it again
wanted that shit so bad, but my fucking cousin had to buy it to rubbit in my face, then, one day, as he was cleanning his room, he just throw it in the trash bin, some months later I got the one of season 2 (blue and white) and the son of a bitch asked me to borrow it, the smashed it with a hammer... I tried to buy one online, but they are too expensive this days
Fucking Zoids, man, I still have like 20 of the fuckers in a box somewhere. I used to love the shit out of the anime and the toys, although I never got Van's Liger, just the shitty normal republic one.
Every Zoids anime after Chaotic Century is shit.
Jew-Gi-Oh got me bad
Yes, had one like that in orange, but my first one (and my favourite) was this one.
10/10 would live your childhood
I got tons of blu-eyes because i rekt scrubs with my buster blader+dark magician combo in elemantary when the whole school is a duel ground in recess

Thank you for the info, now would you kindly fuck off.

I watched Di Gi Charat when I was 16 and I'm still collecting merchandise to this day.
>tfw i won the YTV Weird on Wheels tournament at the CNE
holy fuck i played that so much with my friend
we figured out how to do "power shots" which were so fast you couldn't avoid them
will never forget my helio breaker dhb bro
i had a fucklot of those too and they looked cool adorning my shelf for a few years so i guess money well spent.
Holy shit, I collected every single canistered set of those since the very first wave. I stopped around 2007 after the Barakki (the sets started to decline in quality around 2005-2006. 2008 was full on edgy Blok Bots shit).
Anyone else remember these bad boys?
I had that exact same carpet.
Meant to post this pic.
Why would their parents make their on kids sell their toys? And how did they destroy the bathtub in the first place?
Did anyone get heavy disks or spark disks for their beyblades? Those were the shit
fuck whats the name of this? must know
Those ball bearings were dangerous as fuck.
My Draciel broke while spinning and it was just shooting those balls until the weight difference made it lose balance.
I remember my dad beating the shit out of me because something broke after being hit with one of those balls.
I fucking loved Beyblade.
Unfortunately I had no friends so I just collected them and never actually battled anyone. It was probably all bullshit luck anyway.
Fuck those spark disks. I had a base made of pure fucking metal. That shit weighed around 200-300 grams.
I only used it once because it completely destroyed every beyblade it touched and I didn't like waiting for my friends to buy new ones.
I think I still have it around my room inside a box full of beyblades...
I was slightly into the whole 90's Pokemon craze. I played the shit out of the games but wasn't into the cards as much.
I remember this old odds & end shop was selling the rare cards for $50 dollars a pop.
Always looked but never bought anything.
I guess looking back I never went full obsessive with anything as a kid.
I was too busy playing the shit out of the golden age of RPG's on the PS1.
>tfw spent my childhood watching Sailor Moon, cardcaptor Sakura, and many other girly shows because sister would always hog the TV for herself
>mfw parents bought me sailor moon figures because they always see me watching it with my sister
>tfw always bullied at school for this
>everyone else would have the latest yugioh card or beyblades
yeah I had a number of those
used them to build related
Your parents didn't love you.
That's fucking sad, man.
You never told your parents you never liked that shit?
Well it's the thought that counts. I didn't have the balls to say anything though.
I started warming up to sailor moon anyway
What toy fads do kids like now, I did YGO, Pokemon, and Beanie Babies.
i still have some of these fuckers
The modern versions of the endless stuff like Lego and Furbys are still relevant, as well as Yu-Gi-Oh and Pokemon from our time. The only new franchise toys I've really been seeing crop up all over the place is Adventure Time, I saw a decent amount of merchandise from it walking downtown today.
Kids are more digital than ever though so it's probably Xboxs being moved instead of new toys.
I saw the movie with my dad, which convinced him Pokemon was evil so he threw away my cards and posters.
not entirely anime-related, but did anyone else's school ever go through a Kendama phase? these were really popular all throughout middle school where i went
wtf, did you also play stick and hoop
Shit man. You have no idea how badly I want a Kamen Rider belt. But that shit is expensive.
>Leave for work.
>Come back 10 hours later.

Having mass Beyblade battles and then there's that one asshole who just has a 10inc metal ring for his Beyblade and won't use the regular-sized one like a normal person.
Started when the Metru Nui sets came out. Lost me after all the wizard magic of Mata Nui is giant robot. I was sickened, yet curious when I found a ponified Toa Lhikan on /mlp/

Do you even 90's?
Fuck I'm trying to remember which one my first beyblade was. It was orange and the plastic top was really small barely going over the metal middle piece. I hope it wasn't a bootleg. I know one of the ones I got later was since its bit beast was a fucking digimon
I love the various songs from the dub from Beyblade to G Revolution
Aw shit, I was in one of those too, along with the power shooting.
It was hilarious playing that knockback triangle match with other people, you could take one shot for their five and still win.
Was my brother and I the only ones that actually custom built our Bayblades? We tested tons of different parts from different ones till we made the perfect Bayblades.
It's actually what kids do when it was the thing in the Flips. Kids buy lots of parts and custom theirs.
Same thing when those mini-4wheel drives were in.
This old molester priest and his abbey full of little boys.
Thank you for this incredible story, anon. You made my whole week.
holy shit im in tears. BRAVO ANON.

Aside from that I think I've been a wasteful piece of shit when I was kid.
-Class A Gundam
-Let's & Go
Ah the golden years of childhood splurge. I wonder what today's kiddies are wasting their money on?
>Opening my toybox

>See shiny red plastic

>buy AA batteries
>It won't run
>It has greenish thing in metal
Flip here, I remember saving money for a Spining Sun shaped Metal Wheel.
It got named Infinity since the inside gear broke, so when the bottom is about to stop spinning, the momentum of the top part spinning dragged the bottom to spin again, thus it spins counter clockwise>clockwise>counter clockwise>clockwise
It's heavy as fuck too, so you either get rekt or you lose since it doesn't stop spinning
I spent a fuckton on X-men cards in 96, Ultra Fleer series. I managed to get the whole set of Ultra Fleer '96, then I eventually moved on to Pokemon and MTG cards.
Are you retarded? You called your bitbeasts out and they did battle.
This fucking guy.
BeyBlade science was best science
Pretty much this. Back then, you could go anywhere in my town and you'd see kids flinging these yoyos everywhere, be it the knock off or original ones.
>beyblade is ultra-popular, everyone in the class played

The saddest thing is, I've almost never felt more satisfied than this. Shows how pathetic my life is.
Nah man just shows how amazing that moment was and what fun times you had.
That is no indication that your life it's pathetic. It's just a wonderful moment from your childhood. An emotional peak.
That's wonderful. I only wish my childhood was as fun as yours.
Thank me later
The only friend I had who played Pokémon too was 4 years older than me, so I always played with him, when I got Red, he got Blue, when I got Crystal, he got Silver, and when I got Saphire, he got Ruby. So, he somehow tricked me into giving him my lvl 100 Kyogre in exchange for his Groudon, nicknamed Jirachi (Don't ask me), it was a great Kyogre, but at the time I didn't know the difference between Special attack and attack, meanwhile he was already getting into EV training, so I just saw the attack stat and went for it. I never won a battle against him again until 4th generation. I still have that Jirachi in my emerald.
>you will never get to do "double loop de loop" on a hoverboard
At my hardcore christan school. I got suspended for 2 weeks for talking about pokemon and drawing a fucking charmander during arts and fucking crafts in 4th grade.
I cried I was so touched.
Fuck I loved that with my brother.
Holy fucking shit I just remembered this.

Boy me and my cousin did some extreme beyblade shit when we were kids.
Is that a fucking Gespenst?
Oh shit crazy bones
I used to steal them from my younger brother and trade them.
Here's one for the older folk.
>Small metal disks that had blocky rigged borders, made of brass or something similar.
>Had a device that opened like a police badge but thicker, you put the disks on the "spinning slot" and after you closed them inside you would flip them over and hit the button on the side to "unleash them".
>All kinds of sets from Power Rangers, to Beetleborgs, some anime sets too like Pokemon and Digimon.
>Had an "arena" you would battle them in. First out of the arena was a loser.
>These things spun at such intense speeds they would leave marks on linoleum.
Who knows what I am talking about?
are you sure it went down like that anon?
Are you sure you didn't just trip and send your bey flying in the opposite direction?
Maybe he released it too late because of his running start, thereby breaking the rules?
I took one of those rings from fake CHINESE beyblades where it's stuck on, put it on my own.
I cracked the other kid's beyblade in half
It was fun
Draciel was the best, I miss mine.
So what was your main beyblade?

Dranzer, whichever the original was.

>same fucking shit happened again
But to be serious, when those things hit each other, it was spectacular. I remember hearing all the gasps when my Driger dominated that motherfucker until some custom beyblade knocked my shit out.
>all these stories
And nothing remotely similar will ever happen with today's children and the digital era. Kind of depressing.
I can't find an image of it online (though I'm certain it was an official one), but it was like a little dragon or something (not Kid Dragoon nor Dragoon). It was a really simple beyblade.
Anyway, my main blade had a chinese knock-off base (metal beak so it wouldn't wear down when using it on the floor, which was our arena), I don't remember the top but it was either Dranzer or Metal Dranzer. Same thing for the bitbeast.
