Gatling=Deathshell (Japanese: ガトリング=デスシエル, Gatoringu=Desushieru) is a Rapid-Fire Type B-Daman to be released as part of the Emblem Charge System's Gimmick Specialty Series. It released as a Special Starter on June 22, 2013 in Japan for 997円.
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.
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
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.
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.
B-Daman Fireblast (anime)
- This is the second B-Daman using "Gatling" as the first part of its name, following Gatling Hades from Battle B-Daman: Fire Spirits!.
- It was originally intended for release on May 25, 2013 alongside the Jet Core and Body Random Booster Vol. 3, but was postponed to June 22, 2013 for reasons unknown.
- This causes a confusing jump between the product codes because while Gatling=Deathshell retains CB-78, the Random Starter 2013 Vol. 2 (also set for June 22) is CB-81.
- Gatling=Deathshell was never released with a Version-Up Set like Drive=Garuburn, Kreis=Raydra, and Rising=Dracyan. Even though the Dash Stabilizer is considered as Gatling=Deathshell's Version-Up Part.
