I don't know if I'd like Apollo or not, but these two are absolutely stunning. I really, really like the orange and black sparkly one. Both of them are small/5s, and the second one has a suction cup.

And then there is this. I really like this one as well.

Yet I'm not keeping my hopes up because the Christmas colors have all been 2 color marbles and similar to one another even with name changes over the years. I'd pay as much as Opal for a promotional 3 color Christmas marble that looked like that.

I've been so very tempted to order a toy in those colors. Except Pearly white, metallic red and green in those shades. Not a split marble. Much as I adore split marbles I think it's $20 more for a split marble? And a 3 color marble would already be quite spendy. Yet if the marbling wasn't tighter like this instead a real loose/blocky marble/it ran together marring the colors..it would just completely be ruined for me :doh:.


I just ordered a three color split marble yesterday, it was $40 :) So it's $10 more expensive than a normal two color split marble, but it's not absurdly expensive.

I'd like to see more metals for Christmas, like a Jingle Balls (Bell) Gold! :nomnom:

Thanks :widesmile: ! Oooh what colors did you get? Wow that's not too bad as I thought :nomnom:. So tempting. Merely worried how it would turn out. On say Echo or other sort of thicker toy a loosee/thicker marbling in the colors I have in mind for those midels might actually look ok. Yet I have a very specific preference for a 3 color Christmas marble.

Yes. Metal tones are so pretty.

I ordered a pink/gold/white marbled Medium Trent based off this Frankenpour Snowball that popped up recently! It'll have a gold base. I'm very excited! Elise warned me they have no clue how it'll turn out, but I like those three colors anyways so I'm hoping it'll be a pretty combination. The inspiration was rose quartz :)

Those are some gorgeous toys! Personally I would say to grab one of the Apollos. I have a medium 5 and I really love him! I don't really do well with knotted toys but he works very well for me. The design doesn't read like a knot and the way that they sculpted the head is also really nice. The taper of it makes it soooo much easer to use him! He's definitely not a thrusting toy in my opinion but he is really amazing! I really recommend him!

Yeah, it's XL size. I think I would probably bite into it if I bought it, it just looks so delicious.

Awww hehe I confess I've been checking adoptions every week since Sofia's release, looking for pretties. So I was quite ready to pounce on her! Hopefully something else nice will turn up for your bf! :3

I know right?! And rare for a penetrable. I bet they wouldn't even attempt it as a custom but if they did it would be super expensive. That's what I'm attracted to - the cheap lovelies that I couldn't even get as a custom :widesmile:

Oh nice! I just love bright colors like that. It's very psychedelic lol or kinda like old fashioned "plasma" animations:

I really should have held off, but a toy with the exact specs I was going to order next had been sitting in adoptions for a week now, and it's not like BD's Black Friday sales are usually worth writing home about. And this way I can be 100% sure the marble doesn't suck, which is something I'm really wary about with customs nowadays. Behold, a medium Tentacle in Ika's natural!

Congrats! I looked at that one and noped out due to firmness. Anything except firm shaft would've worked. I hope it works out for you..it's real pretty! Apparently custom marbles have always been blocky/loose unless someone orders enough colors that they sometimes can turn out as tighter marbles. Or if it was a ready made promotional toy that they happened to already have made in the specs someone ordered it as custom.

I've gotten many custom marbles and never had one that looked blocky, or loose. Not overly tight sure but all my custom marbles have turned out great. There's lots of variation with what people get, I think the adoptions are just nicer since you see what type of marble you're getting.

There's a comparable one in flops that I'm still considering. Echo has ruined me <3 I used to be all "I want a little of everything!" toy wise-- now I'm like OK MINI AND MEDIUM ECHO ARE A PRIORITY.
