    I am too old to relate to this thread

    I only know of beyblades because my gf's young cousin was into this shit hardcore for a while so I would play with him

    To piss him off I would yell "LET IT ROPE!" when we started and he would be like "NO NO THAT'S NOT HOW YOU DO IT YOU'RE DOING IT WRONG!"

    Pogs were the big thing when I was in elementary school

    Pokemon was king shit on fuck mountain in junior high

    And general angst and apathy were the hot trends of high school

    Is this seriously a Beyblade nostalgia thread.

    Did a sperm make this thread.

    Pac Man's character is difficult to explain even to the Japanese -- he is an innocent character. He hasn't been educated to discern between good and evil. He acts more like a small child than a grown-up person. Think of him as a child learning in the course of his daily activities. If someone tells him guns are evil, he would be the type to rush out and eat guns. But he would most probably eat any gun, even the pistols of policemen who need them.

    Of of my girlfriends friends just posted a video on facebook yesterday of one of her sons in a local beyblade tournament.

    ...like yesterday.

    Man I'm old.

    I'm kinda surprised they actually have Beyblade tournaments. Ones for Magic and YGO I can easily picture but Beyblade? I bet it had a side-competition for those new Beywheelz too.

    i remember sitting in class trading pokemon on original monochrome gameboys with the huge thick link cables

    with a single nod + glance, we would disconnect at the crucial moment

    Magic and YGO = popular card games.

    Beywheelz = spin-off Beyblade toy.

    Are you telling me that...

    That must have taken fucking forever.

    Okay I have to share this story

    Two months ago I walked into a rite aid an found a box full of crazy bones

    As in, the original purple packed ones
    not the new gogos

    It was the Stuff series

    I bought three packs and they're on display with a pack of new gogos I bought

  • OwenashiOwenashi Registered User regular


    Shame the big bike-sphere doesn't come with that arena. I'd love to see some of these kids into Beyblades participating in a tournament where they have to play in that sphere while dirt-bikes zoom dangerously close all around them.

    somewhere, there is a gold crazy bone, in an unopened package.

    I feel that someday, it is my destiny to find it.

    I never played for keepsies cos my collection was too good

  • GatsbyGatsby Registered User regular
    There was a promotion here a long while ago where crisp packets had DBZ tazos, basically pogs, and I collected them like the dumb kid I was. One day I bought a packet at the video store with my mum, and to my horror there were no tazos in it. I made a fuss and sulked a little, because my collection was almost complete. My mum must've felt sorry for me because the next week she gave me what can only be described as a fat stack o' tazos. She told me she'd written to the company and complained that her son didn't get anything, and this was sent back in return.

    When I graduated from high school she admitted she just bought like a dozen packets of those chips.

    She then admitted as well I only got into my prep school because she brought in my Pokemon drawings which convinced the principal to give me an verbal test, not a written one.

    And that my hermit crab didn't shed its skin so it changed from brown to orange, she just bought another one when the first one died.

    That was a learning experience.

    man you telling me you never got your pog on?

  • CaptainBeyondCaptainBeyond Registered User regular
    Pokemon cards, I had more fights over those things then anything else in primary school.

    And that day some kid got the first fucking Charizard in the school yard, literally crowds around him, wanting to touch the glory.

    Beyblades was amusing until it became apparent the heaviest one won, then kids started using fishing weights hammered flat. One girl stotted mine off my head, I dont remember why, I was probably being a prick over something

    Hell yes, I still have my collection somewhere. Dunno if they're the originals, I do remember some sport themed ones and then the big ones (Super gogos?)

    I assume you gave him a proper disproportionate retribution when your dad wasn't looking.

    It was a dark day in lancastershire when Beasteh exacted his revenge.

    For the only appropriate revenge for a Charizard is . ..murder.

    Or just you know kick him in the balls for being a bitch.

    Playing pogs while getting a sugar high on Raven's Revenge was what elementary school was about.
