Got my buckyballs and amazingly depressed with the product. Ordered 2 of 5 different colors. Got all that I ordered. Opened the 2 green ones first to play with them and all I have to say is that my cheap chinese knock offs from a few years ago not only have a stronger pull, but feel better in my hand than these chromatics at least. Plus some of the magnets have a very weak pull. I put 216 into a cube and I can make it wobble a lot almost like it is barely held together. My other cube from an ebay knock off is nothing like that.

Also did those who ordered get the plastic wrap around their plastic boxes? Of my 10 125 cube boxes, one had plastic wrap all around it making it seem sealed and new, while the others just had the stickers over the flaps.

I emailed them about missing items in a shipment and got a response within the hour.
Well, that's incredibly disappointing, to say the least. Guess I'm emailing them once again.. thanks for the info.

Did you get your missing items resolved? What did they offer you?

Support responses seem completely random. A coworker of mine had an order botched as well, and he's still waiting after a couple of days.

They offered me a refund for the missing items, as everything is claimed to be out of stock. Based on the variable quality for these things (really inconsistent paint, variable magnetic strength), I'd say it was the best possible outcome for me.

I'm mostly ticked because I bought 4 orange for me, and 2 red on behalf of a friend. Of course, it wasn't one of my orange that goes missing, it's one of her two reds. I know they're probably going to offer me a refund, but $5 back now isn't going to buy me another set later. I'd rather be offered another color than a refund. This isn't my fault, it's theirs, you know?

EDIT: Well, how about that. Sent a new email at 1:50p, received a response at 2:14p. They're refunding me the difference of the one set, joy. Ugh.

Oh geez. I hope that's just the chormatic ones. I have 2 sets of the originals and cubes coming. At least I think they are as I've heard no word from them for about 5 days? Confused

EDIT : Actually the last email/contact I got was the 24th of Sept! Seriously, I'm just gonna cancel. I'm paying $22 with shipping for 2 sets and I can't get a auto-email that it's taking longer then usual?

I'd cancel if I were you. They seem to work okay, don't get me wrong. putting them into a cube isn't always as easy since they don't hold as well, but they do hold. However it definitely feels like a cheap product to me. I assume the non chromatics at least should feel smooth, but not sure if they would be stronger. Plus some of the green ones I tried seem strong, others weak, it varies, but I'm not exactly going to go testing them all trying to judge and then put the 125 weakest ones into a cube and demand a replacement. that's too much work. I'll just keep the set I was going to give out as a present and the green ones, and pawn off one or two of them to cover most of the cost I think. Thankfully craigslist exists.

Ordered on the 20th, just got my shipping confirmation today. Definitely not happy that it takes a half a month just to get shipping info, hopefully they'll show up in the next couple days. Also crossing my fingers that I'll get a good set.

Well, maybe I got in early, but all my sets came through. Kind of addicted, never played with these before. I've only used the original nickel kind. They seem fine to me


What do you think the odds are that they have another $5 or $10 sale for the 125/216 sets again?

I sent an email, got back an auto-repsonse.

EDIT : scratch that I just check, they just shipped right now. Funny how the day I send the cancel email they ship. Anyone else smell BS?

Ordered 5 sets (gold).
Paypal Receipt: Sep 20 @ 13:11
Shipping Confirmation: Oct 2nd - Fedex SmartPost Tracking Number (Your BUCKYBALLS have shipped!)
Ship date according to Fedex: Oct 6.
Estimated arrival according to Fedex: Oct 16!

Considering I got in on the deal pretty early, the delay is a little unreasonable. I wouldn't be so bothered if I hadn't received an effectively BS shipping email on Oct 2nd.

Got my order but have no idea why I got all caught up in this hype. Have no idea what I am going to do with 3 silver sets. Isn't the 1st time and won't be the last.

Thats what they are going for...Hype. The best thing that ever happened to this company was getting banned by the Gov't.
