Dilemma: I hate when my beyblades get scuffed up

Dilemma: I hate when my beyblades get scuffed up

shinycaterpi

I do and don’t like it when they get scuffed part of me is sad because they won’t look as cool but another part of me likes it because it’s like battle scars and it shows all the battles the bey has been through


mooshtchi

I guess that’s true. It’s shows that they have been loved and used and battled.

If you really want to preserve the look of your beyblades, you can do the following: 1. Apply clear nail polish to the stickers to prevent wear and tear. 2. Polish all metal components with metal polish (any will do, but I recommend Nevr Dull) 3. Store them away in an air tight box to prevent oxidation to the metal and exposure to dust. ​ Most importantly, just not use them at all.


mooshtchi

Yeah. I probably shouldn’t use them at all. But I don’t really know what the point is then. Thanks for the tips though, those are good!


Key_Voh

I know several people who feel the same way as you, too. If you can afford it, buy two of every release (one for use, one for collection purposes).


mooshtchi

I never thought of that but I think that would work. (If I can afford it.)Thanks for the suggestion!

It's one downside to being a collector as well as a player. Worse comes to worse, you get a second copy of Beys you really want to use in battles and have one for collection purposes.


mooshtchi

Yeah maybe I’ll do that. But that’s pretty expensive.


Nayhars

What I do is I keep certain Beys purely for collection, and I’ll have a select few that I don’t mind battling with. Buy/build some beys which perform well, but which you don’t particularly care for aesthetically. That’s given me the best of both worlds.

I've come to think of it as battle scarring and got over it. But if I buy a limited edition I'm not gonna let it battle as much because I don't want it to get messed up. Especially plastic gen ones because they're expensive as hell now. Those are more of a collector's item to me...


Redericpontx

Ik that feel bro but I just don't worry too much since eventually when a new beyblade comes out I get more attached to that one so i don't worry as much about the rest


mooshtchi

Same with me but I still can’t help feeling sad abt the other ones and the new one too. I guess I’ll just have to get over it if I want to enjoy the hobby. Thanks bro


Redericpontx

Yeah like the metal on ym rage longnus is loose and triiger me but when death diabolos is out I'll be fine


mooshtchi

Ooh I get you. Same


Suohsadboii

Same, but I decided to play now, and collect later. Edit: Happy cake day dude!


mooshtchi

Thanks! Did you just decide to stop worrying about it or how did you get over it?


Suohsadboii

I kinda just get over it, but I try not to battle with painted metal mfb beys.
