From Saturday 14th to the 20th August, Mega will be on the road with the Battle to XS Summer Tour where Battle Brad will be appearing in leading top toy shops in major towns and cities.

14th August, The Entertainer Westfield; 15th August, Toys R Us Brent Cross; 16th August, Smyths Chadwell Heath; 17th August, The Entertainer Basingstoke (Festival Place); 18th August, Toys R Us Woking;
19th August, Daniel of Windsor and 20th August, The Entertainer Birmingham (Bullring).

The UK Tour gives Battle Strikers fans the chance to take on the Battle Striker expert who can also give kids insight into new battling techniques, new skills, new designs and even his own secret stunts in his Tips Showcase. Children will be able to pledge allegiance to one of three teams and battle against their friends as well as taking advantage of ‘on the day’ offers.

Mega has teamed up with Swapit.co.uk to offer kids the chance to pick up a Golden Ticket at each venue. 50 tickets per store will be given out on a first come first served basis, each worth 350 Swapits. Kids can then redeem their Swapits by typing in a special code on www.Swapit.co.uk.

Pete Fuller, marketing manager of Mega Brands, commented: "We are really excited about Battle Brad's trip to the UK in August as part of our Battle to XS Summer Tour, as it is great to give our fans the opportunity to meet our most dedicated Battle Striker Ambassador and the chance to play and win new Battle Strikers Metal XS products. Brad has been devoted to the world of spinning tops since the age of 13 and his story on how he made it, we believe, is inspirational."
