Default All Bucky Balls products are 5.00 for the next 3 hours

Not sure if this is the sign of the end or not, but 5.00 for a set
All colors are gone but the base nickel

They are ...adult play things. Small magnets...Like an executive desk toy
They are being sued into oblivion because some idiots bought them for kids who swallowed them

I'm actually playing with my Balls* right now. They're addicting, and very magnetic.

*Ordered a set during the first promotion.

Worse than being sued. The government is over-stepping its bounds (again) and might shut them down.

Awesome, I have wanted some of these for a while but I couldn't bring myself to pay $30 for them. I just bought the original color balls and the gold cubes.

$10 right now.

Great marketing work by this company. THe product probably costs $0.25 to produce a set and there will be no shortage, but they have created the idea of a shortage.

Coupon code SUCKITGROUPON gets you a nice discount.

Not $5, but not $45 either.
