When it comes to Beyblades, one of the most common questions asked is where do you buy them? This is especially the case when it comes to the Japanese Takara Tomy Beyblades, since most of them are imported from Japan (and they are much harder to find than the other brands of Beys.) But don't worry, we are here to help!
In this article we not only cover where to find Beyblades of ANY brand, we will also show you where to buy Takara Tomy Beyblades (all of the best sources that we have found.) But first, you need to know what style of Beyblade to buy - because the all have their pros and their cons. Depending on the style that you like to play, you will want an "attack", "defense", "stamina", or "balance" style bey. And then there is also the "Beyblade Burst" models as well.
So What Style of Beyblade Should I Buy?
Our personal favorites are the classic "Metal Series" or "Metal Saga" Beyblades. These are arguable the most popular series ever made, and even to this day, they are still highly in demand. Before the "Metal Saga" beys, there were the "HMS" (hard metal system) Beyblades, but those have become pretty obsolete now, and not many people use them anymore.
The next most popular (and our second favorite) types of Beyblades are the "Burst Series" Beyblades. These are the current generation of Beyblades, and they are super popular. We don't care for them for one simple reason though: they literally fall apart (or "burst") when they get hit hard enough. And who wants to have to put their Bey back together all the time?
Anyways, there are a few different places that we recommend buying Beyblades online. But the first two websites that come to mind are Amazon.com and eBay.com (as you will by FAR find the best deals on those two sites.) Also, they tend to have a MASSIVE amount of Beyblades for sale on those two websites, and if you go with Amazon, then you generally get super fast shipping.
However, if you go with eBay for your Beyblade purchases, be sure to only buy from sellers that have good feedback (at least 99% positive or better.) Also, take "Item Location" into account too. The further away the "item location", the longer your order will take to arrive. Most people never take that into consideration, and then end up wondering why it is taking so long for their order to arrive.
Japanese Hades Kerbecs - One of Our Favorites Takara Tomy Beyblades
The above image is of the "Hades Kerbecs" Takara Tomy Beyblade, which is by far one of our favorite Beys. Hades Kerbecs is often found on eBay for very reasonable prices. This is a Stamina style Beyblade, and it is one of the longest spinning Beys that you can get. It has pretty good attack power, and it has a good amount of weight to it as well, which is rare for a stamina bey. That, and this thing looks extremely cool too. This is probably why Hades is one of the most popular Metal Series Beys on the market.
Japanese Flame Libra Takara Tomy Beyblade - Another One of Our All-Time Favorites
This is an image of the Japanese Flame Libra Takara Tomy Beyblade (also known as a "booster" because it does not come with a launcher.) This is another super popular Beyblade, and it performs quite well in the arena. You used to be able to find this one on Amazon, but now it is only found on eBay for the most part. Generally you will only find the non branded cheap Beyblades on Amazon, while you can still find Takara Tomy Beyblades for sale on eBay (they actually have a very large amount of them selling on there at any given time.) However, if you wish to find even more Beys, you can also just do a quick google search, and see what pops up. Only buy from trusted websites in the google shopping network though.
Most of the TT Beyblades are known as "starter sets" (which means that they come with a Takara Tomy Launcher.) Generally they come with the "light launcher 2" ripper, but in some cases (IE: with Gravity Perseus) they come with a string launcher / beylauncher. These string launchers are far more powerful and easier to use than a standard ripper, and we highly recommend that you buy one if you don't have one already. You can definitely find them on eBay, and if you don't mind a cheaper brand, then you can find them on Amazon as well.
