Made by Matchbox in the late 1980's. Four special stickers reveal the orientation of their faces.
This version from matchbox features four special faces stickers:
- Mr. Rubik's signature
- Mr. Rubik's profile of head
- A term C*4^4 indicating the higher number of permutations
- The logo "Rubik's Cube" known from ITC
Three versions are known so far. The versions for USA and Germany share the same packaging but different languages. The UK edition has a different packaging shown in images 6-9.
After employing these colors for years on the Deluxe cubes and the "Rubik's Game" cubes, Enro Rubik finally declared that Red opposite Orange, White opposite Blue, and Yellow opposite Green, with one corner RBG clockwise, were his "official" colors.
He changed his mind early in the 21st century.
If you're looking to buy, eBay is the one place you can find almost anything... if you're willing to wait for it, then pay the price!
