Bandit (バンディッド, Bandeiddo) is an Element Wheel released by Takara Tomy as part of the Synchrome System. It debuted in Japan with the release of the BBG-20 Booster Bandid Goreim DF145BS on August 11, 2012, and in western countries with the release of the SS-20 Bandit Golem DF145BS.

Description

Bandit (or Bandid) is a blocky Element Wheel, with a design resembling daggers. Bandit is meant to complement the Golem Warrior Wheel: like Golem, Bandit has block shapes with ridges in between them.

Like other Element Wheels, Bandit is outclassed by the use of two Warrior Wheels in a Synchrome Combination. However, in the WBO's MFB Limited Format, where the Synchrome gimmick is restricted, Bandit is a top tier Element Wheel choice for Attack Combinations when paired with Warrior Wheels such as Wyvern, Zirago, and Pegasus.

There is a minor mold variation with Bandit: the Hasbro release is both lighter and less durable than the Takara Tomy release, due to the material used. As such, the Takara Tomy releases are preferable for competitive use.

Overall

As with all Element Wheels, Bandit is outclassed in all aspects by the use of Warrior Wheels, which are used in Synchrome Combinations.

As such, Bandit is recommended for collection purposes only.

If one chooses to use a Synchrome System combination in the WBO's MFB Limited Format, Bandit is an excellent choice for Attack Combinations. However, as there are many Hybrid Wheel and 4D System alternatives in the format, Bandit is not a must-have.

As such, Bandit is not a must have but is instead a welcome addition to a blader's collection.
