This article is about the Takara Tomy version. For the Hasbro version, see Layer Base - Glyph.

Grand (グランド, Gurando) is a Layer Base released by Takara Tomy as part of the Burst System as well as the Gatinko Layer System. It debuted in Japan with the release of the B-133 DX Starter Ace Dragon Sting Charge Zan on March 16th, 2019.

Description

A Stamina Type Base that produces a strong centrifugal force by removing the inner lightning and two large blades that are almost circular.
— Official Description

Grand is a Stamina Type Layer Base that features two dragon heads that form the main points of contact with large wings, akin to a reversed Driger Slash. Like other Stamina Bases, Grand exposes less of a Gatinko Chip's teeth, slightly reducing the Chip's Burst resistance.

Despite the round shape, the size of the gaps between the wings and dragon heads creates sizable recoil, making Grand ill-suited for Stamina purposes. Furthermore, the wings themselves are hollow, reducing Outward-Weight-Distribution and subsequent Stamina potential. Finally, due to the nature of the Gatinko Layer System, much of the Grand Base's weight will not be concentrated at the edges of the Layer, but closer to the center due to the shape of Layer Weights, further reducing Stamina potential.

Overall

Despite the Base's round shape, the hollow wings, recoil inducing gaps and weight distribution leaves Grand outclassed by pervious Layers such as Archer Hercules and Hell Salamander.

As such, Grand is recommended for collection purposes only.
