Warballs.com disappeared without a trace. Duncan’s contender against Bakugan is now called Warstone. Bakugan’s marbles transform into monsters after they stop rolling, while Warstone’s marbles just stay marbles. And yet, Warstone is patent pending.

You can still pick up a package of “Warball” on Amazon.

Duncan is currently owned by Flambeau products, a company that used to make the yo-yos for Duncan, before Duncan and Royal Tops sued each other out of business in 1965 over the trademark to the term “yo-yo”, which was eventually ruled to be in the public domain. Flambeau bought Duncan in 1968. Duncan became the premier yo-yo company again in 2002 after buying Playmaxx.
