Body Set: Deathshell Body

Head Part: Deathshell Head

This Head Part is quite bulbous while harboring two, thin spikes jutting upward at its sides. It has a semi-translucent violet color scheme.

Emblem Parts: Deathshell Emblem

Gatling=Deathshell has a singular Emblem Part consisting of a hexagon surrounded by six other hexagons, giving the effect of the patterns on a tortoise's shell. It can be taken apart and mounted on either Arm Part.

Stud Parts

These Stud Parts are cylindrical and of a solid black coloration. The prototype had pearlescent white Stud Parts.

Arm Parts: Deathshell Arm

Deathshell's Arm Parts mold into a bending format while using a spike on each shoulder; protruding outwards similar to the Head Part. They are of a semi-translucent violet coloration. The shoulder-spikes can be removed and placed on the feet of Spike=Phoenix's Leg Part.

Leg Part: Deathshell Leg

The feet of the Leg Part seem slightly long and linear. Semi-translucent violet is used for its colour scheme. They are hollow, as a means of weight reduction. There are also small peg inserts in the heel of the Leg Part that allow the Dash Stabilizer to be attached as a Version-Up Part.

Core Part: Gatling

Gatling Unit (click to show).

The Gatling Core features a two-handled crank known as the Gatling Unit, which can be turned backwards to fire a stream of B-Dama, and has a removable grip that can be put on either socket. It uses the same body shell as Sonic, and it is semi-translucent purple with black parts. Unlike the Sonic Core, it has no rollers on its Hold Parts, but its cylindrical tips do resemble rollers. The prototype of Gatling=Deathshell (see the Toyline section of the Gallery) had this Core Part in a metallic gray coloration, with the Trigger and Gatling Unit colored a pearlescent white instead of black. 

Breakage Issue

Because the Core Part is made of a semi-translucent plastic, it's potentially fragile. If you take the Head Part off directly, you may end up leaving behind a crack or two. If you wish to use this Core with other Head Parts, remove part of the Core and extract the current Head Part from there.
