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.

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

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.

Actually they don't list the smaller size sets anymore. They could send me full size sets or just send me loose balls.
That is completely their own fault for not having a decent inventory system and limiting online orders to available inventory. Having to replace them with the larger set would serve them right.

Considering their site still lists all the items, just at normal prices, I think their "out of stock" excuse is utter bullshit. They're just being lazy asses and don't want to deal with fulfilling backorders.
Here is my email response to BB:

I am not please with your resolution to this problem. It is not like you were OOS when I ordered. You messed up my order and sent me the wrong order. I had ordered multiple sets of certain colors since I don't believe the smaller set are as useful to make complicated designs. I was also taking into consideration your flat rate shipping into my purchase. You obviously still have plenty of balls in stock. I would think that you would either replace my order with the larger sets or send me loose balls. I have ordered from you several times in the past (usually at the retail cost). I will not be ordering from you again if this is your final resolution to this problem. I am also considering asking for a full refund and returning Mr Wilkinson's order.

I tried not to laugh when I asked them to send me loose balls.laugh out loud

Bought 2, imeadiately regret pulling the trigger. Oh well, maybe I won't just use them for 20 mins and then put them in a drawer for 20 years.

Buckyballs are no more...

From Facebook:
"Due to baseless and relentless legal badgering by a certain four letter government agency, it’s time to bid a fond farewell to the world's most popular adult desktoys, Buckyballs and Buckycubes. There are a few thousand sets left in stock but act fast; once they’re gone, they’re gone for good. And don’t panic, ballers! There’s still plenty of fun to be had with Buckybars, Bucky Bigs, & More! www.getbuckyballs.com"

Just got an email about them being discontinued. Too bad they aren't discounted now that they are discontinued. I would have bought a few more for $5.

After some usage, I think anybody who bought them at full price is a complete idiot. The Zen Magnets video trashing their quality is sadly accurate; $5 is about all Buckyballs are worth.
