It’s been more than 20 years since Beyblade battling first spun into the world of toys. Now, the future of head-to-head competition is spinning into action!
The Beyblade Burst QuadDrive Interstellar Drop Battle Set from ADK Emotions and Hasbro is the first playset to introduce a customizable four-in-one top. This new Beyblade tech offers kids ages 8 and up the chance to configure their tops in four ways, creating more ways to customize, strategize, compete, and win.
The set comes with everything that Beyblade beginners or Beymasters need to let it rip, including the Interstellar Drop Beystadium, two right/left spin launchers, two extra Armor Tips, a removable disc, and two right-spin tops — Devastate Evo Belfyre B7 G01 QD06 TS22-Q A07 and Prominence Phoenix P7 G10 QD03 TB16-Q D05. Each number in the top’s sequence represents a piece that kids can modify to gain the battle advantage.
The instructions on putting together the Beyblade tops and the Beystadium can be a little confusing at first, especially with so many part names, so I recommend that a parent help out to get everything set up.
Kids can swap the tops from Core to Apex mode (and vice versa) by reversing the order in which the Beyblades are put together. To make battles even more intense, kids can customize their tops to Core+ and Apex+ mode. These modes give the tops improved stats in attack, stamina, defense, and more. The only thing kids have to do to change their top to one of these advanced modes is add one of the included Armor Tips to the bottom. These are entirely optional, but they do improve the performance of the Beyblade overall.
What makes this set so unique is the Interstellar Drop Beystadium. This stadium is constructed with multiple layers, creating two battle levels to compete in. Kids can battle their Beyblades on the top level, which can then drop through the Warp Hole in the center of the top piece and shift the battle to the next level. If kids prefer to stick to traditional stadium battling, a removable disc fits perfectly in the Warp Hole to block Beyblades from falling through it.
The first time I tried the second level, my top crashed into the side of the Beystadium once and then tumbled into the Warp Hole. After some trial and error, I discovered that I had the most success pulling the spin launcher right at the side of the stadium. This prevents the top from spinning directly into the wall or the Warp hole at the start of the battle.
For even more fun, kids can scan the code underneath the drive chips (colorful portion on top of the Beyblade) to compete in virtual battles in the Beyblade Burst app.
All in all, this Beyblade set adds a new level of competition through the Interstellar Drop Beystadium and gives kids the opportunity to customize their tops in new ways on their journey towards Beymastery!
