New Color YoyoFactory Protostar!


I’m not sure if you guys remember my collage with the few mock Protostar colors.

I sent it to YoyoFactory, and recently one of them came to life. ;D The color is dead on. YoyoFactory sent me a few of these in the mail. Grind finish on that plastic now, and a collectible hard case packaging. I’ll update this with a spinning shot. Maybe I’ll give one away in the Splash Game soon (here or Instagram).

I’ve been using the YoyoFactory boxes as yo-yo stands. I have four or five of them now. :wink:

Special thanks to YoyoFactory, very kind and generous, as usual. ;D Oh, and that new Aviator blew me away…amazing job Da Fact’ry did on that one…wow:

Darn I’m so upset that I don’t have any splash yoyos to play with. I want one of these!


We may come up with another idea :wink: But, for that game, borrow a friend’s throw and snap a pic haha. I’ll see what answers I can get about any production information. The new Protostar color looks amazing!


No yoyo friends in person :(.

Maybe I’ll take my bro outside and splash one of my DTYYs with paint, just for a fun activity with him (he’s 4 and would love it). Haha


Ooh I have my TP paranoid, general yo torrent 2 and SPYY amplifier good thing my mom has a nice camera.


haha, I didn’t think you’d really send them this picture, TA! Congratz!


that’s super cool TA! you earned it.


Thanks. I listened to a few wise ones, and they know who they are. :wink:


I’d love to get my hands on one of those.


I really hope they release a run of these for like Breast Cancer Awareness Month or something because that looks stunning. If they do i might suggest the make it a tad different to keep the exclusivity of the original high


I have a few more photos for you. This is the Protostar spinning, no filter or effects, just how we like it. And, a photo of the packaging too.

The Protostar graphic looks like an eyeball while spinning. :smiley:

So awesome!


I’d LOVE to see a Northstar in this color too. You know how I feel about that Northstar. :slight_smile:


Hmmm…maybe I should send CLYW a few Peak mockups :wink:

But that’s awesome!


Haha. I really enjoy CLYW, and nice people running the show over there. But Da Fact’ry is my favorite! They just have that sweet spot that is just right for me. I prefer heavier throws, and long spin times, certain shapes and designs. They always seems to get it right for me. I even have a little nickname for it now (hip-hop style). 8)

Oh, and they happen to be the leading maker of my favorite colorway. :wink:


TotalArtist is one of the coolest people I know. ::slight_smile:


I just got a pink protostar in the mail today from a mystery box.

I dont think the color is the same thougu, mines more of a neon hot pink


^ Sweet. You knew it was coming…

Off the top, in a zone:

I made a collage photograph with an App,
I sent it to Da Fact’ry, and Ben wrote back ,
In the email, I asked him“well…what do you think?”
The photo had Protostars, including purple and pink.
He thought they were cool, two colors were new,
Protostar had already been in red and blue ,
Although the mock photo was something he liked,
I never thought I’d see the new color in real life,
When I thought of pink, there were none for sale,
Da Fact’ry was nice to send me some in the mail,
I opened up the box, three throws and two stickers,
I set up a spot, so I could take some new pictures,
I saw it on camera, I was Protostar smitten,
Just enamored, the first time I saw it spinning,
Still shots, spinning, and with the box as a stand, ,
And, I got so many likes when they posted on Instagram,
The Protostar is a classic, for competition status,
One of the best plastics, in a hard case package,
Protostar with a new look, and it aint over,
This one’s in the books, as one sick makeover.
What a nice gift, I was elated…so happy,
More than I could wish, as created by Da Fact’ry.

Those look really cool TA.

I’m normally not a huge fan of pink but with that see through-ish look it turned out really cool.


I agree, certain colors have to be the right shade. For me, pink is one of them. This one is the perfect shade of pink, and the translucent adds even more appeal. :slight_smile:
