I can't see a Crackers or Nocturne? I suppose it's for the best since it's probably super gorgeous that they wouldn't touch as a custom unless it's for a cam girl. I get that they want to show off their best. Yet it seems sort of bait and switch to send only their prettiest toys that are NOT typical custom marbles to cam girls to show off what they got as a custom. Even a customer that has spent hundreds, or probably even a thousand or more for some fot he bigger collections I've seen isn't going to get that type of marble or mayhaps not even that clean of a fade that the cam girls get.

I did get marble I mostly liked from a custom Crash..I just found I wasn't really in love with small Crash in any firmness. It had a couple of almost-stripes that I thought suited the model well. I'm not sure why I like my medium Crash better than both the small 3/soft and small 5/medium I bought..it has the same minimal texture until the knot..perhaps because the knot is longer thus more texture plus the shaft is thicker combined :mystery:. Yet I'm only able to ride the medium due to size..didn't find I liked riding the small at all. So peculiar.

I'm right there with you. That is a sucker punch to ever 200 + toy I have gotten. Simple fades gone muddy and sloppy marbles. It hurts and it's really shitty public relations. They are not transparent and now they are on the road to burning the fan base . Once you lose creditabilty as a company it's the hardest thing to ever get back. I hope the main stream customers are worth it . I'm just getting hurt and bitter.


On a side note I sent for a custom for EA and I got a yes. Feels nice to be treated like a decent customer again.

It's a shame the companies that do amazing marbles can't guarantee your marble will look like one of the nice ones, in BD's case won't do the tight or lacey marbles for customs, can take a super long time due to being understaffed, or don't take customs. I don't know a single soul who really prefers blocky or extremely loose marbles like what comes out of B-D customs and some E-E customs and some indie maker customs which is more understandable if they are newer to working with silicone.

It's this picture right here.

Also I went to find BD salt on tumblr to soothe my salty urges and apparently I don't follow the right people or can't find the tags they're using because I'm seeing barely any, someone direct me to some

I just wish Bad Dragon would update what they can and can't do; because it's really disheartening to see them giving this stuff away. :B I've always envied them for their quality but they have been slipping lately.

I don't blame you, I seriously feel the same way :eyeroll: people who actually pay for these things get put through so much shit and end up with flawed customs or can't even get their custom ideas made.

Thanks! Good lord that's an amazing pour. That's like E-E levels of customization :bugeyed:. I wish they would be willing to do this for us "average" customers who spend way more on their toys than cam girls who get free toys do for an extra fee. I'd glady pay a hunk extra for tighter, lacey, or whispy marbles, Aurora/Rainbow Ribbon, or striped base toys, etc.

In a way I see why they give free toys to cam girls. In theory it gets the word out there about the company. In practice I feel it falls flat. Here's why. Who is the main audience for cam girls? Straight men, specifically straight men who aren't trans*. The odds of them buying a toy to insert into themselves after watching a cam girl are very low. There's also that feeling of bait and switch. You see these special amazing pours they do for cam girls or once in a great while a very popular big name youtuber..which is probably going to give you more exposure honestly since all types watch youtubers that don't normally do sex toy reviews. Yet they never do these amazing pours for regular customs..you rarely get tight marbles as customs. Unless mayhaps it's 3 - 4 colors. Yet I've seen 3 color marbles with blocky or loose marbling.

I say why not give the cam girls regular custom marbles or single color metallic/pearl. Those can still look fancier than a standard single plain/matte color. While not being misleading about what they actually offer as customs to customers not getting free toys.

Idk, imo the glossy effect makes it look cheap, but that's just me :mystery:

Benefit of the (unlikely) doubt, this has something to do with the "big things to come". But I very highly doubt it, after all the streamlining they did already.

It's fine if they want to experiment and try new things, but it's different when we get told no to so much. And if they want to do pours like this once in a while, why not hold a giveaway or contest?

Amen, fuckin' preach it. It's so disheartening to see all these camgirls getting free, beautiful toys in colours that more than half the time we can't even get and you know it's all straight men getting their rocks off to it and won't really be interested in buying a toy. :misc4:

I remember I saw a youtube review a few years ago where the reviewer had been given a small Winston in a yellow to dark red fade for free to review. Because the fade was yellow and red, it mixed in the middle to be orange, like a fire gradient, which again showed of the capabilities of the silicone wonderfully. The reviewer was able to talk about her experiences ordering, plus how much extra it would cost to get a custom fade, but she was showing a toy that was representative of what an average customer could actually purchase. Because that was some of my first exposure to BD toys and I was coming from the world of mainstream (pink/purple/black, solid) toys, a fade like that was super impressive to me and made me very interested.

If she had shown a toy that was like that Crackers, and then said that it isn't possible to order it for yourself, then I would not have been nearly as impressed. I watch reviews because I want to see what I could potentially buy and whether it would be worth spending my money on such an item, not to see examples of amazing stuff I can't get. (Plus the asking price of something like that Crackers, knowing BD, would be incredibly high, which would make it mostly-inaccessible to ME, but it wouldn't be inaccessible to others if they had the cash for that.)

^This is me. I want customs of some of their non life cast models SO bad, but I'm really torn on supporting them as a company.

Also agreeing that it feels pretty bad that camgirls are getting crazy customs and we can't even pay for them... that Crackers is gorgeous and I'd absolutely be willing to save up for a custom like that. It shows that they can do small details. Not trying to be salty, but it really doesn't feel fair.

Excellent point.

I started doing toy reviews on Tumblr after getting asked about a few of mine that weren't from BD. I know Tumblr has it's drama and salt too..I just don't know where else to post text based reviews..plus I love following indie makers. I've decided for now against posting B-D reviews there. Because almost all my toys I've kept and not sold off have been ready mades and thus most of them aren't representative of what you would get as a custom. I'd hate to misrepresent to potential buyers even with a disclaimer

Example. Here's my custom made Turqoise Crash. I loved the front of the toy how the marble is almost stripe admittedly. Just didn't care much for small crash. Yet compared to my ready made legacy Breeder, ready made mini Roland in the same holiday color. You can clearly see a big difference in the types or marbling jobs on these toys.
