    Hey everyone,
    maybe you already know, maybe not, but Bad-Dragon customs are open again (Edit: Sorry, will reopen later today to be exact)!
    They don't offer custom colors by now, just the ones you can choose by default (Naturals and Signatures, the Kinds and so on) though.

    And for everybody who just wants to have a toy in its natural or signature color, there was a huge drop some hours ago and there are still hundreds of toys left in clearance!

    Stay safe and have fun shopping. :)

    I actually did!
    I was eyeing on the Sig color Orochi for quite some time and said to myself I'd order one when customs reopen. But for the better this exact Orochi was in the drop as well so I ordered it from there. So I will get my hands on it much faster! :)
    And while I was at it, I grabbed a rouge Flint. I guess it was intended to be Flint's signature color but the white highlight didn't work out as planned so it's shiny golden with a few parts on it with a white highlights... hard to explain haha. I'll definitely post pictures when it arrives!

    Aaaannnnd now they're closed again.

    I ordered 3 toys when they opened up custom orders again, and they arrived today (about 5-6 weeks). I think I placed my order on the 2nd day customs was reopened. So they were poured and delivered pretty fast. But now I see on the website that they have suspended custom orders again, while they catch up with orders.

    I hope they reopen them again soon, since I've been meaning to purchase some toys. It would dispel the need for looking for a resell on my end. Hopefully they can handle things in a safe, effective manner. As of now, the clearance drops literally sell out 50%+ of inventory within the first 3-5 minutes, making it kind of hard to access BD at the moment.

    In my opinion, people might as well buy custom toys and get the exact features they want (firmness, suction cup, cum tube). Keep an eye on Bad Dragon's Twitter account, that's where they make announcements on sales. If you can place an order in the first day or two, they should be able to make your toy pretty fast.

    I gave up on Clearance toys (I only managed to buy one Clearance toy, since they redesigned the website - and then UPS lost it). Shopping in Clearance is too stressful when there's a drop, people use automated scripts to refresh their page every three seconds. It's not fair. And I almost never see toys with the features I want.

    A few years ago Clearance (Adoptions) would have hundreds or even thousands of toys available sometimes, and they might take months to sell. You could see something interesting in Clearance, take a few days to think about it, go back later to look at those toys again, etc. This was before Bad Dragon's popularity blew up.

    Resale purchase is a good option, but again, it's hard to find the exact toys you want. I also think a lot of used toys are overpriced. Might as well spend a few dollars more, and get something brand new.

    Yeah I definitely hope that I can get what I want. Hopefully custom orders open again, and do keep in mind I've been monitoring their Twitter very closely. I managed to get a good toy actually on clearance somehow. Then again at that time I figured while it was available for me there, I might also buy some merch as well so I threw in a hoodie cause I like some of their designs haha.

    But hopefully I can find something, and they open their custom orders again soon. I definitely am willing to fork out money for something brand new, even if I find a resell, I wouldn't mind having an extra toy when custom orders re-open. I got my first toy coming from clearance on Monday, so I can't wait to see how that works out. Just sucks because I only got my credit card after the fact that they had closed their custom ordering.

    On another note they're really popular huh? Hopefully they consider expanding manufacturing power. Perhaps to another country or international site for easier, and cheaper shipping. I feel this would be something for BD to consider in the future after COVID-19 as it could only be a positive with the current state of clearance drops and whatnot.
