In-depth information for Hasbro’s Cognite C3 Energy Layer will be placed here once drafting has been completed for it. Please be patient.
Hasbro's Cognite C3 is mostly unchanged from Takara Tomy's Alter Chronos with the gimmick intact. However, Cognite C3’s Burst resistance is severely reduced, making the Layer ill-suited for Defense Combinations. With little recoil and only average Stamina, Cognite C3 is ill-suited for Attack, Defense and Stamina Combinations.
As such, Hasbro's Cognite C3 is recommended for collection purposes only.
