thank you !!


No problem! :^) What model are you thinking for Venom?? Pretzal would be a cool choice.


i was thinking medium flint, ive been looking for a black medium flint for over 5 months on reddit and secondhand sales posts but nothing, i ended up buying a 'medium' black flint which turned out to be a small, im tired of waiting for one to pop up so i was going to order a custom but why order a bland custom when i can get a kick to it, wanted to see if BD would release a coloration for the new Venom premiere but so far nothing.

i had a small and large pretzal at some point but it just doesn't work with me :(
i seem to like short but girthy models so i would consider Medium Xar or Medium pearce ( i had a large pearce and i loved it but i want to enjoy all my other toys too..)

Might as well just get my Flint ive been craving so much for !

Msg me if you see any of my toys that may interest you for future sale reference :0 )

Flint would work nice!! Also, they usually do movie color releases when the movie actually releases. Venom comes out October 5th, so if they did decide to do a color for it, it would be around then.

Just gonna throw these ideas out here. If anyone likes it feel free to use em!

I was thinking of these pours on Hanns. I still need one at some point.

Teal from blue skink's (dragon tongue signature) fade plus onyx with silver dazzle as a pridestreak. Halloween black base. Aqua gitd highlight.

Also on Hanns.
Zaratan's Natural dark green for the base. Fade of violet to butterfly yellow at the tip.

Kinda wondering if BD will still do Jester's Queen (either variant) as well.

Edit; Hanns in Slasher Silver is now something I wanna see

Lenneth (Ridgeback) is the last BD toy on my list at the moment. I can see from his page that he still supports fades and such. I'm trying to decide if I want to go for a custom or pick a fade or marble that's already set. I really like the signature fade of the Demogorgon; that orange to green fade is pretty neat. The ridges shape would make highlights look pretty great as well. I also like the new signature marble for Bumble Hooves, but purple and gold are also my high school colors and I'm too sure how I feel about that, lol. I've been leaning towards something orange, but I don't know. Any ideas?

Does BD have a metallic pink color, and do they do metallic marbles? Thinking about getting a small Pearce with either a blossom or metallic pink marbled with another metallic color, probably gold. As an alternative idea how well would a dazzle work with Pearce's natural?

Does anyone have good pics of Pearce's natural? Hard to tell how bright it really is, but If its light enough it might be cute even by itself.

There's Blossom Pink, Watermelon, for metallic/pearl pinks that I know of =-). You could ticket asking if they can do BD Pink, BubbleGum, Cherry Blossom, Peach in metallic/pearlescent I'm not sure if they'll do it since the custom color cuts.

Still been thinking of getting a toy in Onyx with a metallic gold, kinda similar gold from the Egg plug. Marbled how Turquoise Legacy was done.
Just trying to find a toy now haha, thinking a Fenrir but not sure hmmm

Hi there, first time question asker on this board;

Im kinda stuck on the fence on a couple of things:

I wanted to ask/know if CS would allow the addition of pearlescent shimmer to a gitd color/specialty color. I want to order a medium Xar in Guardian Blue, but the newer version of GB is really boring/one dimensional to look at. Or would I have to order the legacy Guardian Blue?

And, what the difference between shimmer and dazzle on a toy? Is it the size of the particle of glitter?

I'm stuck on a custom idea for Crackers.

What I know;
-I want the shaft to be metallic
-it to have a white highlight
-a different color base
-I don't really want to get a marbled shaft because it detracts the details/general idea I'm going for.

Any ideas?

Mine so far have been (all with the highlight);

~Cyan and purple fade from cosmic nebula shaft with a black gold base

~Split Midnight Forest

~Halloween black shaft with Tyrant (black and glowing blue) base *the one I'm currently thinking of doing.

~That dark silver blue in Axel's signature for the shaft with a progenitor purple base.

I asked like 3 months ago when I was shooting ideas for a custom Xar with (originally) a Starlight shaft with gold dazzle. The reply was along the lines of "we can't alter GITD colors at all" so pretty much what you see as a glowing option is what you can get.

I think shimmer is more like what's in colors like Jupiter? And dazzle is the glitter? I don't know this one but it sounds like the size is what is different

I think shimmer is cosmetic mica (a pulverized mineral, I guess they can dye it too) and dazzle is glitter, but I don't know what material is made of.
Resistance is futile.

If I like my new toys I'm planning on ordering a custom medium Nova. I want to get it in a split fade of magenta to indigo or midnight, with a night sky base. I want the colors to be metallic and with silver dazzle throughout. And then, as the grand finalé, aqua spooky seconds :misc2: :widesmile:

But that's a $50 custom :surprised: what if I end up not liking the toy? I'm planning years ahead but still.

OMG I can't imagine anyone doing that. Customer service has always been super helpful, even when they told me they couldn't do something. If they can't do your request, ask if they can make suggestions or help brainstorm other ideas that would work with your theme.

ugh

sadly I've heard (read) people crowing and patting themselves on the back for "putting CS in their place"

happily, not THAT recently

(my hope is that they were lying through their teeth)

Just a quick clarification; is it possible to marble something with...say the black part that's the GITD Resident Pleasure color with...i dunno, the pink from Jesters Queen? Or it is strictly "can only use these colors in it's preset fashion"?
