If the Easter marbles were metallic or pearlescent in some way then I might have been interested. As it is, they're matte so I'm not interested and they also didn't drop any in any models/sizes/firmnesses that interest me to begin with.

I mean, FB has a long wait time too, but they don't do drops anywhere near as often, and usually only for event colors. If BD has so many customs to fill that it's taking months, why on earth are they using their molds on Frankenpours? :psyduck:

Leftover silicone is expensive, too expensive not to use in a frankenpour. My question is why they have leftover silicone in the first place. Also, adoptions are a great way to train new people, test out colors, and sell flops and other things. It's worth it for a business the size of BD to devote some people to adoptions because it's profitable. However, the amount of dropped toys is so few compared the the amount of custom orders they get, it really probably takes up very little of their time overall.


Agreed, there's something horribly wrong that some frankenpours seem to result in such an excess of silicone that, in some cases, almost fill an entire toy, with a bit of a second color. I understand needing a little extra, but there would ideally be so little that its what goes into teenies...

Guys. Frankenpours are great. Some people like getting discounts on toys...why are they such a problem?

Is shipping through FedEx no longer an option? I went to get an Alice from the Easter drop and only UPS is available. Anybody else suddenly not have FedEx anymore? I chose them as an option for my custom order just 4 days ago, so I'm wondering why I can't now. I live in the great white north.

Still an option for me, east coast US. :mystery:

Question; why is it called a sale when there's no discount and it's in-stocks? Wouldn't that be a drop or an event? :eyeroll:

Sale doesn't have to mean "discount". They are still selling stuff. So Easter sale = selling Easter stuff!

To be fair, it /is/ misleading though. This is a thing that has consistently bugged me about BD's 'sales' ...though they had been better about that until recently.

The Easter marble doesn't interest me personally, but it does look nice on Echo ...I think he looks nice in lighter colors. But I'm just not a huge fan of pastels.

Thank god I haven't been the only one thinking them labeling these things as "Sales" Are complete bullshit :unamused: :eyeroll:

If you are giving a discount, call it a sale! If you are just dropping colors, Call it a color promotion...

I wish there would be a real SALE soon as I would love to pick up a Mini Clayton! :doh:

I like the look of the Mars color, but I'm not sure what it'd look good on. I think Clayton would look great, but he's not really on my list at the moment. As for the others on my list, I've already decided on two of them; the other two are ones I'd prefer to be marbles or something like that.

Is it just me, or is the Mars coloration not showing up as a color choice at all? On any toys?

Same. I was browsing the website the moment it dropped the update, which was exciting, but I was just a little disappointed. The colors are cute, but kind of bland imo. And they did have models I like, but I've recently realized I'm more of a firm guy. And it seemed like most if not all of them were in medium.

Sucks.

I've just spend nearly 10 minutes laughing at myself in regards to a conversation I was having with a friend about breakfast... Talking about what I'd be wanting from McDonalds. I accidentally spell hot cakes as hot cocks. The worst part about it is that it wasn't spellcheck, I'm on my laptop. What is my life...

I guess we're used to lexicon that sale always means discount. "limited edition sale" It dosen't look like I can select an easter marble toy to order. and when it's done the price will go up to get one.

I think this is it. The sale portion is that you can get a coloration for free that would normally cost quite a bit more. Here, you get a 3-4 color marble for the base price. Personally, I don't like the use of the word 'sale' in this case for a couple of reasons. One, because we don't see the jacked up price that would come along with custom ordering the marble, there is no obvious discount applied. Two, because the adopts are full of wonderfully colors marbles labelled as rogue that are also at the standard price, it kind of seems normal to have toys likes those marked as official easter marbles present in the adopts for those prices.

I agree - I'd like to see these labelled color promotions. Cognitively, it is a better fit to what they really are.
idk. i just like the ghost. :mystery:

Haha XD I did something like that once at a Chili's :tinfoil: my dad was asking me what I was looking at on the menu and I said I thought I was in the mood for a Sizzling Vagita. Just thankful that one didn't slip in front of the waitress instead :stick:
