Orb Egis (オーブイージス, Ōbu Ījisu) is an Energy Layer released by Takara Tomy as part of the Burst System as well as the Cho-Z Layer System. It debuted in Japan with the release of the BG-10 Random Layer Collection Vol. 10 in September 2018 and was later released in the B-128 Cho-Z Customize Set on November 17th, 2018.
Takara Tomy's Orb Egis is a right-spin Defense Type Energy Layer that features a trapezoid shaped design. The design of the Energy Layer depicts the legendary shield aegis from Greek mythology, featuring six serpentine heads of a Gorgon.
As part of the Cho-Z Layer System, Orb Egis features metal in its design; in this case, the inner circumference of the Energy Layer is lined with metal, along with two metal spheres on opposite sides of the Energy Layer. Its sloped contact points make it an excellent Destabiliser when used with Performance Tips such as Atomic'. Due to its high Defense potential, on release Orb Egis was a decent choice for Defense Combinations.
While a decent Defense Type Energy Layer at its release, Takara Tomy's Orb Egis has since been outclassed as it is too light to be competitive in the current metagame.As such, Takara Tomy's Orb Egis is recommended for collection purposes only.
