- This article is about the Hasbro version. For the Takara Tomy version, see Energy Layer - Dragoon Storm (Takara Tomy).
Hasbro's Dragoon Storm is a Burst System adaptation of the Reverse Dragon Attack Ring and Dragoon Bit Chip from the Original Series' Spin Gear System. As such it features an overall square/diamond shape with four dragon heads that act as the main contact points and an image of the Bit Beast Dragoon in the center. The difference in shape between the Energy Layer and the original Attack Ring is that the dragon heads are much more compact making the Layer somewhat smaller overall. The "Bit Chip" is non-removable.
Compared to its Takara Tomy counterpart, Hasbro's Dragoon Storm is even more compact, slightly reducing recoil. The slopes of the Layer are also much weaker, reducing its Burst Resistance and making it more prone to Self-Bursts.
Hasbro's Dragoon Storm features two primary differences compared to Takara Tomy's Dragoon Storm; the Layer is even more compact, slightly reducing recoil and the slopes of the Layer are very weak compared to its counterpart's teeth. Due to these weak slopes, it incurs Self-Bursts more than its Takara Tomy counterpart, despite the reduced recoil.
As such, Hasbro's Dragoon Storm is recommended for collection purposes only.
