Luckily, the AAA I was mauling over is gone. It was a great price but I just didn't love it. I'd rather pay DA full price for a color I like more.

I'm ready for marbled March!!!

It's been 10 weeks, and my FB order still hasn't shipped... :angry: Bad Dragon may have it's own issues, but at least I get my toys fairly quickly.

Mine is just shy of 13 weeks old. And all I ordered was a mini Atlas Lion. :/

I ordered a mini Cryo. A week after I placed my order I asked them if they could do a specific marble pattern, but they told me no, becasue my toy was already poured. I thought "sweet, they should ship it soon..." Yeah, what a joke. I'm actually angry at them.

2/10 will not order from them ever again.

It is. I have to contact the seller though. I don't know if this is safe to use, there are cuts on the surface and literally pieces of tinsel or something caught inside. I'm pretty upset with how bad this is

All I ordered was a premade egg. It's been a month. Still says it's only been paid. Goin' by all y'alls time... I'm not holding my breath about seeing it before July.

that sucks! I had to go double check mine real quick in better light, it seems fine. I would definitely be raising hell if I were you. Post an update when you hear back from them.

I had to damn near get pushy before they sent my stuff, years back. It was all empty promises and excuses. They threw a pity party at me, once. I was like...are you effing serious? We have one person here who waited over a year for their order. I was willing to cut them some slack in the beginning because, you know, new company, but they really should have their shit together by now.

FB is pretty dang slow at shipping. I always just pick things up from them when they go to events - like FWA. Their products really are great, but they need to work on their speed. :surprised:

Yeah I'm pretty pissed to say the least. I don't even know if this is usable. I sent them a message but could only attach three pics. It's littered with cuts and something all inside of it. I'll post back if they respond. I would have dismissed the cuts for mold issues, but the fact that there is something inside of it, in multiple places, is what bothers me.

Im gonna hop on the will not buy from FB again train. Last year it took them over 10 weeks to make and sent a mega brood egg and 3 regular eggs. That and the product isn't very good the casting seams are all very noticeable on all the eggs, there was a dent and a big discoloration in the big egg and the base where the retrieval string on the big egg is pitted along with the string being cheep fabric.

Im not trying to slander FB but this was my experience with them. Not very good.

But the biggest reason i dont buy from them is size. all there stuff is too small for me. I like some of there designs but too small for me. Sorry size king problems :widesmile:

It sounds like FB is still being FB :eyeroll: I'm not sure why people keep buying from them and then being shocked when it takes months to even get an update. It seems to be exceptionally, extremely rare for a toy from them to get out the door quickly, and I honestly can't tell why. Even if they are totally swamped with orders, they STILL haven't come up with a system to ship out completed orders in a timely manner? Folks have gotta stop enabling them, 'cause unless they see an actual hit in their profits, there's no reason for them to change these shoddy business practices. It's grossly unprofessional.

That's very worrying :bugeyed: If I got a toy that had cuts on it, I'd give it a pass if it was from a small company, but stuff caught inside? That makes me think that the mold wasn't entirely cleared of debris when they poured it, or they removed it too soon and some tinsel got stuck (and cut it up while moving).

seriously?! I just want to give you a hug, it seems like you need on right about now, lol. How did the bag break? I used mine for a glass toy that needed to be in a bag, and it seems to still be intact. But that's F-ed up that you got a crap order. I feel bad for not having anything wrong with mine. Is that weird?
