I really hope that either
A) Bruce is temporarily being shelved while they rework the model and potentially bring in more sizes, or
B) There will be an actual public announcement (ie. not something we only discover via ticket) if/when any other models get pulled.

As it stands now, with my small amount of disposable income rendering me unable to quickly check off my wishlist, I'm worried that I won't be able to nab the models I still want in time. Yeah, I could just order a legacy-- but that 150% markup + the Canadian dollar + me wanting larger sizes is... really pricey.

As a fellow Canadian, I'd suggest seeing if anyone else who's also in Canada is selling secondhand (unless you're wanting something specifically colored), at least until the dollar gets better.

It only been down for a day so I am just gonna be patient and wait to see what happens before stirring up a fuss! I'm sure they will do an official announcement or put him back up! I'm sure they will make it available for purchase again if they do plan on retiring it! :stick:

Someone in this thread already got confirmation from CS that he was being retired. Given that, and the fact that they took other things away with no warning and no announcement, which was also confirmed by CS, I seriously doubt they'll put him back up. We're all still hoping for some kind of announcement, though.

I was on the fence about Bruce. I mean, I'm a bit bummed that I'll never be able to own him if I ever changed my mind, but as of now, I don't really want him so I'm not technically losing anything? I still feel bad for the people who lost the chance to purchase anything but a solid colour adopt.

However, this makes me nervous for the prospective future of other models, especially ones that aren't popular. Because the Canadian dollar is so bad + shipping costs + taxes when it enters the country, it's incredibly expensive for me to order toys on the flip of switch. I'm scared that even if they do make a retirement sale, that it will be really short and I won't be able to make the cash in time. I hope that in the future, they give us a month or so to plan out orders and arrange funds before they pull a toy.

Plus I have several customs planned so now I feel a bit pressured to buy ones I know are unpopular right away (the Snow Leopard, for example) just so I don't miss the opportunity.

On an off note, what models do you think might be getting the boot next? I'm thinking maybe the RD, Kippy, and most of the 'one size' models simply because there isn't enough people who are in that size range to buy them.
I mostly lurk and don't really post or look at messages because I'm forgetful or lazy. Sorry for any inconvenience.

The one size model system sucks. I wanted to get a Snow Leopard pretty much ever since I discovered BD, but I didn't get up to that size range until recently (and it would be one of the biggest toys I own, I think).
So I'm sure a lot of people would buy the labs models if they had them in more sizes. Same goes with MD and Kage. They have some pretty intimidating knots.

well, I guess they have to make more room for wrinkly fox dicks...

really tho... rather upsetting that a toy would just suddenly disappear like that with no warning.

I'm still new to Bad Dragon, but I was checking Bruce out a few days ago and I'm really sad to see it gone. =( There's something about having two shark dicks inside you that adds another tier to the fantasy level.

How would ordering it as a legacy work? If it's getting retired for real without any goodbye sales or such, it might just come down to that. If I end up really wanting it, I'll just have to deal with the price.

How would you order a legacy product then? I haven't found an answer to this question yet. ^-^ Do you just send in a ticket, or?

This seriously almost made me cry. I have been training to take that freaking model since I first saw it :crying:
So what, like 300 bucks if I want one now?
The worst part is they never even tell anyone. At least post something on the forums for the people who really care :doh:

Yes, you send in a ticket to order legacy models.

Yes, you send in a ticket to order legacy models.

Thank you! I'll be sure to consider that with my girlfriend after we receive our tentacles ^^

I feel that way a little bit, too! I've noticed that those models, and Bumble, seem to get the most attention from drops. The three you mentioned are about the only ones I saw dropped in the St. Patrick's Day colors. I guess those most be some of their most popular models?
I dunno, the more I think about it, the more it doesn't make any sense. We just don't have enough information to go on.

You can definitely tell which models BD favors, especially when looking at adopts and promotions. For the easter marbles there were about 25 Noxes and about 50 Chances, while Xar and Apollo got a grand total of 0. :angry:

I was upset that there were no Apollos or Xars in the Easter color. I love the Easter color, but I haven't picked up one yet. I gave it my best shot on mobile, failed, and decided to just hope there was something left I liked on April Fools. I would have bought an Apollo as soon as I had the chance! Or a Pretzel. Or a mini Crackers. Or some models and sizes in a firmness other than medium. :psyduck:
