Phantom Orion B:D (BB-118) is a stamina type bey. It is known to spin longer than any of the other Beyblade tops ever produced. This is probably due to the fact that it has a real ball bearing in its bottom / tip. The "B:D" part of the model number actually stands for "bearing drive". This authentic Takara Phantom Orion Beyblade is a Japanese Beyblade (imported from Japan.) This is a 4D Beyblade - it uses the 4D system and has a "4D bottom" (the spin track and performance tip are one combined piece.)

Includes official Takara Tomy light launcher 2 ripper. Fully compatible with old style Beyblades, including all Metal Fury, Metal Masters, Metal Fight, Shogun Steel, And Metal Fusion Beyblades. NOT compatible with Beyblade Burst spinning top toys or launchers.
This is a Metal Fury Beyblade spinning top from the metal series line of metal beys. In the Metal Fury TV series, the real Phantom Orion owner is Chris. This original Beyblade toy comes with everything needed to start battling with your friends (metal wheel / metal frame, core, energy ring, 4D performance tip bottom, face bolt, and launcher.)

Great Quality Midfake
Posted by Luka on Dec 20th 2023
Amazing quality! Spun for 5:58!
Posted by Riley Brown on Jul 7th 2023
This is probably the best reproduced bey I’ve bought. There was only a tiny bit of excess plastic and surprisingly none of the stickers have fallen off. The B:D spins well enough, they do vary a lot even if they’re authentic. It has the most stamina out of any stock bet I’ve bought. The defense isn’t too crazy which is to be expected, it’s a well balanced bey. It’s quickly become one of my favorites. I’d highly recommend getting it.
One of the best beyblades ever, almost unbeatable

100% authentic and durable
Posted by Unknown on Dec 27th 2022
It is great exactly what is advertised
Posted by Michael on Dec 11th 2022
Ultimate stamina type, the phantom wheel helps a lot with stamina because the weight is at the outside of the wheel which creates centrifugal force, and combined with B:D/Bearing drive it spins even longer. Mine spun for about 5 minutes and 26 seconds when not battling.
Real beyblade, not a fake. I was really happy with my purchase. If you want the real Phantom Orion from the Metal Fury series then this is the one you buy!
Posted by Santiago Mondragon on Oct 10th 2022
Would buy again

Description [ ]
Like Hasbro's Extreme Top System IR Spin Control Beyblades, Phantom Orion uses an infrared controller/launcher to control the movement of the Beyblade. Unlike other Super Control Beyblades, Phantom Orion has a slight degree of customization, with the ability to switch between modes like its 4D System counterpart.

The Face of this Beyblade depicts the Orion constellation, a mighty hunter in Greek Mythology.
4D Clear Wheel: Orion
- Weight: 3.0 grams
Orion is a four-sided 4D Clear Wheel that has two sharper contours and two broad edges. The two sharper sides of the 4D Clear Wheel represent the top of Orion's forehead, and create a distinct face when used in conjunction with Phantom. It contains the iron powder that all 4D Clear Wheels have. However, this does not add significant weight.
Use in Attack Customization
The Orion 4D Clear Wheel works well with the Flash 4D Metal Wheel in combinations such as MF-H Flash Orion GB145RF : Orion's weight distribution is synergetic with Flash's, while Orion's shape exposes Flash's contact points perfectly, its broader sides complimenting Flash's oval shape in Attack Mode.
4D Metal Wheel: Phantom
- Weight: 44.50 grams
Phantom is composed of both a Metal Frame and a Core. By removing and flipping the Metal Frame, Phantom can alternate between two modes: Stamina Mode and Attack Mode.
- Weight: 42.0 grams
Phantom's Metal Frame makes up for most of Phantom's weight. It consists of two vastly different faces. The first one, facing up when Phantom is in Stamina Mode (henceforth known as the Stamina Face ), displays Orion's figure--eyes, nose and grin--twice, as well as two identical long surfaces--smooth, but uneven--representing Orion's sword and scabbard. On each is engraved two shallow holes where stickers can be applied to depict a total of four blue stars, which, combined with Orion's Face's three blue flames, form the Orion constellation. The second face, the Attack Face , on the other hand, is a rough, but even, patterned surface, only broken by a single octagonal shape overlapping and sticking out of the otherwise circular Metal Wheel's shape.
- Weight: 2.50 grams
Phantom's Core is a small piece of polycarbonate, roughly the size of a Clear Wheel. It features four small, upward protrusions that fit in the Metal Frame's four matching slot, locking the latter in place in either mode.
Phantom's modes, Stamina and Attack, are distinguished as followed:
- Stamina Mode
Stamina Mode is when the Metal Frame displays the Stamina Face , while the Attack Face faces the Stadium floor.
- Attack Mode
Stamina Mode is when the Metal Frame displays the Attack Face , while the Stamina Face faces the Stadium floor.
Generally, Phantom's Stamina Mode is preferred since this 4D Metal Wheel performs the best in top-tier Stamina combos and that its design is much smoother.
The Cancer, Orion and Hades Clear Wheels are considered to have the best synergy with Phantom, with Cancer being able to spin around 2 minutes longer than Aquario on it, another widely-used Stamina Clear Wheel.
Use in Stamina Customization
Phantom's Stamina Mode demonstrates the best endurance in combos such as Phantom Cancer W145WD or Phantom Cancer TH170/230D .
Use in Tornado Staller Customization
Phantom's Attack Mode has been shown to work well in the Tornado Staller combo MF-L Phantom Hades/Cancer 85MF , which circles the BeyStadium's Tornado Ridge until it gradually dives towards the center for a finishing strike. This combination is functional in large part due to Phantom's nearly unmatched characteristics: the combination of top-tier Stamina with enough Attack potential to deliver meaningful hits to weakened opponents.
Mold Variation: Hasbro Metal Fury Version
Like all of Hasbro's Metal Fury releases, Metal Fury Phantom's parts are fused into one piece, stuck in its default mode (Stamina Mode). What stands as the PC Core on the original version is made completely out of metal. However, the resulting increase in weight is offset by the hollowed underside of Metal Fury Phantom, which removes about ten grams from the wheel's total weight, a trait it shares with other Metal Fury Metal Wheels. This, combined with the reduced Flywheel Effect from the PC Core being made of metal, makes Phantom no better than Earth and Burn, which are completely outclassed, even in Hasbro BeyStadiums, by Basalt, Hell, and Hyperblade Phantom, amongst the good Stamina Metal Wheels distributed by Hasbro. The Metal Fury version of this 4D Metal Wheel is thoroughly useless. The original 4D version of Phantom has since then been made available to Hasbro Bladers through Hasbro's Hyperblade series.
4D Bottom: Bearing Drive (B:D)
B:D has a unique, tall shape, and a height comparable to the TH170 (170 height) Track without a Bottom associated to the latter. It is also of a translucent yellow color which allows a faint view of the internal workings of the Bearings. This metal ball bearing mechanism allows the Beyblade to spin for long periods of time with minimal amounts of friction. Indeed, B:D paired with its release parts Phantom Orion is one of the only combinations able to spin up to 7 minutes.
Bearing Drive features, inside its plastic casing, a metal shaft connected to the middle of the 4D Bottom, a metal casing that is connected to the tip of B:D, and metal spheres in between them. Sometimes, the bearing is able to stop the shaft from spinning, resulting in less friction between the stadium floor and itself. These factors increase Stamina, but there exists many mold variations even within the same distributing company and general inconsistencies that can make this rarely happen. B:D's solo spin time often ranges between 2-5 minutes.
This interesting 4D Bottom reminescent of HMS' Bearing Cores however has considerable issues. Firstly, since all it focuses on is stamina, it remains very easy to knock out of the stadium, with its tip being similar to other vulnerable Stamina Bottoms such as WD. Secondly, while its height isn't a huge mistake and still allows the customization it is part of to be balanced with a decent center of gravity, the fact that this height is fixed becomes a disadvantage against the more varied assortments of Attack combinations.
While B:D has many issues in a BeyStadium Attack Type , it has proven to work extremely well in Zero-G Stadiums, such as the combo Gargole/Revizer/Killerken Dragooon B:D. In fact, B:D does not appear to suffer the same vulnerability issues as in the traditional metagame, due to Zero-G's wild, swaying gimmick that give new angles of stadiums for B:D to embrace.

Phantom Orion B:D is an extremely versatile Beyblade that contains many useful parts: Phantom's Stamina is roughly equal to that of Duo, albeit performing better in different competitive situations; B:D is considered one of the best parts to use in Zero-G Stadiums, especially with beginners. Every Blader should own at least one of this Beyblade .

Looks amazing! It looks like it's made with love <3 do not dig into the improvements so that the moment of the long-awaited release turns out .. On my own behalf, I advise you to split up ideas about the release of statistics, the true form is good, but working on a project alone, the implementation of all those who came is infinitely long.

KYIV, Ukraine (AP) — Russia and Ukraine traded drone attacks early Wednesday, officials said, with Kyiv apparently targeting Moscow again and the Kremlin’s forces launching another bombardment of Ukrainian grain storage depots in what have recently become signature tactics in the almost 18-month war .
Later Wednesday, the Ukrainian intelligence agency claimed it had destroyed a key Russian S-400 surface-to-air missile defense system in occupied Crimea. If confirmed, it would be another embarrassing blow for Moscow, as Ukraine increasingly targets Russia’s assets far behind the front line in southern and eastern Ukraine.
The agency, known by its acronym GUR, claimed on its official Telegram channel that Russia has a “limited number” of the sophisticated systems and that the loss “is a painful blow.” Moscow officials made no immediate comment.
The long-range S-400 missiles are capable of striking enemy aircraft and are regarded as one of the best such systems available. They have a range of 400 kilometers (250 miles) and can simultaneously engage multiple targets.
Earlier, a three-hour nighttime Russian drone attack in Ukraine’s southern Odesa region overnight Tuesday caused a blaze at grain facilities, Odesa Regional Military Administration Head Oleh Kiper said.
The attack destroyed 13,000 metric tons (14,300 U.S. tons) of grain, bringing the month’s total grain losses to around 270,000 metric tons (300,000 U.S. tons), Ukrainian Infrastructure Minister Oleksandr Kubrakov said in a Facebook post.
Russia zeroed in on Odesa last month, crippling significant parts of the port city’s grain facilities, days after President Vladimir Putin broke off Russia’s participation in the Black Sea Grain Initiative . That wartime deal enabled Ukraine’s exports to reach many countries facing the threat of hunger.
Under a year of that deal, Ukraine shipped 32.9 million metric tons (36.2 million U.S. tons) of grain, most of it from the Odesa region.
Russian officials, meanwhile, claimed to have downed Ukrainian drones in Moscow and the surrounding region early Wednesday, the defense ministry and the mayor said. No casualties were reported in the drone attack, which has become almost a daily occurrence in the Russian capital.
Moscow Mayor Sergey Sobyanin said one drone smashed into a building under construction in Moscow City, a prestigious business complex hit by drones twice before. Several windows were broken in two buildings nearby and emergency services responded to the scene.
Russia’s Ministry of Defense said the drone had been electronically jammed.
It blamed the attack on Ukraine and said two other drones were shot down by air defense systems in the Mozhaisk and Khimki areas of the Moscow region. Kyiv officials, as usual, neither confirmed nor denied Ukraine was behind the drone attacks.
Moscow airports briefly closed but have now reopened, according to Russian state media.
Neither side’s claims could be independently verified.
Ukraine has since early this year sought to take the war into the heart of Russia . It has increasingly targeted Moscow’s military assets behind the front lines in eastern and southern Ukraine and at the same time has launched drones against Moscow .
Meanwhile, a Russian drone attack on the city of Romny in northeastern Ukraine struck a local school, killing the principal, his deputy, a secretary and the school librarian, according to Ukraine’s Ministry of Internal Affairs.
Also, three people were killed in the Belgorod region of Russia on the Ukrainian border after repeated shelling of a sanatorium, according to Gov. Vyacheslav Gladkov.
Gladkov said the sanatorium in the village of Lavy, about 40km (25 miles) from the border, was shelled, killing two refugees and a staff member.
The Belgorod region has witnessed sporadic fighting and shelling during the war, including a border incursion last May that prompted the Kremlin to introduce tighter security.
A handful of foreign dignitaries, including the prime minister of Finland and the presidents of Portugal and Lithuania, visited Ukraine on Wednesday.
Their presence coincided with the Day of the National Flag of Ukraine, which precedes Ukrainian Independence Day on Thursday.
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy, along with Ukrainian Armed Forces Commander in Chief Valerii Zaluzhnyi and other top officials, attended the unfurling in Kyiv of a giant Ukrainian flag with numerous signatures of soldiers, volunteers, doctors and rescuers.
This story has been corrected to show that that the prime minister of Finland, not the president, visited Ukraine on Wednesday.
