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.
"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"
