Hey,

Quick, here's the deal...our CEO is on a flight for the next 5 hours and the team at Bucky HQ is taking over the site 'til he lands. We're all aware and grateful of all the support you've given us, and it's time to get in touch with our rebellious streak. Before his plane lands, we're marking down ALL products sitewide to thank you.

From 1-6 pm (EST) today, everything at http://www.getbuckyballs.com is just $5!

PS: Heads up, though: this is a balls-to-the-wall limited time offer, and is ONLY available between 1p-6p EST, during which our Customer Service Team may or may not be at the bar. Cheers!

Starting April 2013, retailers are voluntarily recalling these products.

Please, please do make sure you take these magnets away from children and teenagers!
http://www.cpsc.gov/en/Safety-Edu...s/Magnets/

If you purchased online, the company has ceased doing business, but you can file a claim against the MOH Liquidating Trust.
The Proof of Claim form has a line for "Refund for retail or consumer purchase", but it is not clear how much you will get back.
Proof of Claim must be received 12/27/2022.

FYI (DO NOT DELETE THIS INFORMATION...this can be helpful for those who are not familiar with buckyballs), CPSC Sues Maxfield & Oberton Over Hazardous Buckyballs® and Buckycube™ Desk Toys [cpsc.gov]

"When two or more magnets are swallowed, they can attract to one another through the stomach and intestinal walls, resulting in serious injuries, such as holes in the stomach and intestines, intestinal blockage, blood poisoning and possibly death. Medical professionals may not diagnose the need for immediate medical intervention in such cases, resulting in worsening of the injuries."


WASHINGTON, D.C. - In an effort to prevent children from suffering further harm, U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) staff filed an administrative complaint today against Maxfield & Oberton Holdings LLC, of New York, N.Y., alleging that Buckyballs and Buckycubes contain a defect in the design, packaging, warnings, and instructions, which pose a substantial risk of injury to the public. The Commission voted 3-1 to approve the filing of the complaint, which seeks, among other things, an order that the firm stops selling Buckyballs and Buckycubes, notify the public of the defect, and offer consumers a full refund.[/SIZE]

Same complaint also filed against Zen Magnets. http://www.cpsc.gov/cpscpub/prere...12243.html
Despite no record of injury. http://blogs.westword.com/latestw...denver.php

Cheaper than previous FP deals for 125-piece sets by almost 50% by my calculation.

If you don't want these to be banned, SIGN THE PETITION AT SaveMagnets.com [savemagnets.com]

DO NOT BE SURPRISED IF YOU GET PHOTOCHROMATICS AND THEY ARE ROUGH IF NOT FLAKING RIGHT OUT OF THE BOX. I GOT 3 SETS ORANGE BEING THE WORST, HAD TO SMASH THE WHOLE SET IN A BOOK TO SEPARATE THEM.



Since the HTTPS site is getting hammered, I used the regular HTTP site. It's loading much quicker now.

Almost sold out! as of 3pm pacific

Just got this in my mail. If I can get the page to load, I'll definitely pick up a couple pairs.
