Beyblade Legends is a Beyblade main toy line series created by Hasbro to succeed the Beyblade: Shogun Steel series. Officially announced at the American International Toy Fair 2014, it was described as featuring "all the characters from the history of the Beyblade series". It is a series of re-releases beginning from Beyblade: Metal Fusion, in addition to tops from Beyblade: Metal Masters and Hyperblades with new Beystadiums, 2-Packs and a new version of the Super Vortex Battle Set.
It was first released in the United States in July 2014.
From February 16-19, 2014, Hasbro appeared at the year's annual American International Toy Fair 2014 to promote their latest toys, including BeyWarriors BeyRaiderz. There, a representative officially revealed Beyblade Legends and described it as featuring "all the characters from the history of the Beyblade series" with a targeted release for fall 2014. A press release was later indirectly released as well.
On April 25, 2014, Nelvana exclusively confirmed with Beyblade Wiki that "Legends will start from Metal Fusion" and "Hasbro won't be reproducing tops from series 1-3". They also confirmed its Fall 2014 release date. They acknowledged the disappointment that Original Series Blades were not going to be included but expressed enthusiasm of seeing Beyblade: Metal Fusion and Beyblade: Metal Masters Beys "back in the mix".
On May 13, 2014, Nelvana also exclusively confirmed with Beyblade Wiki Beyblade Legends will see the return of Hyperblades.
On May 26, 2014, Nelvana once again exclusively confirmed with Beyblade Wiki that the line would not be releasing in fall 2014 anymore because it will instead "be hitting retail August 2014" and they revealed an "associated website is anticipated to launch end of July".
On June 2, 2014, Nelvana would again exclusively confirm with Beyblade Wiki "the Beyblade Legends line will be launching online and instores in July".
On June 5, 2014, Nelvana exclusively told Beyblade Wiki that "when legends comes out", they will "likely bring them" to the Beyblade Shop.
Sometime in July 2014, the first six Hyperblades in the line were released, consisting of Cosmic Pegasus F:D, L-Drago Destructor F:S, Omega Dragonis 85XF, Diablo Nemesis X:D, Death Quetzalcoatl 125RDF and Fang Leone 130W2D (the last two were previously not released by Hasbro). Unlike their Spark FX versions, each Hyperblade is not preassembled, there are no Collector Cards and they retain their Takara Tomy counterpart coloring with the exception of Omega Dragonis 85XF's Fusion Wheel having no paint, despite official images.
A press release indirectly released by Hasbro has detailed the line.
