Hi Twistypuzzles, I had a couple general questions for you guys about some of my favorite Meffert's Puzzles.

First, is there any place where one would acquire a Mosaic Cube? I love the look of that puzzle, and I regret not buying one when I had the chance. The whole-corner turning mechanism is fascinating to me and beautiful.

Secondly, about how many Fisher Golden Cubes were created? In each metal color? About how much do they sell for nowadays? This one is mostly curiosity -- I own a Gold version of the Fisher's Golden cube, back when they did the $42 production run. I wonder how many of those were made in total, and how much I could sell it for nowadays (if I may have to someday).

Lastly, does anyone know how limited of a production run the Ghost cubes are on mefferts? I really like the ghost cube style, but its pricey, but at the same time I don't wanna let the opportunity pass me by. any advice?

Thanks guys!

I got one of the last ones from Calvin @ HKNowstore almost two years ago. You won't find one for sale. outside this forum or eBay.

DO use something like paypal or credit card should something go wrong.

They claim to have 100 in stock at the moment, but as I have never used this site before I have no idea on its reliability.

Wait.. Am I reading the right price? Do they really charge 90 euro for the Mosaic cube or is it just me being wrong.
I would, like Kattenvriedin said, pay with paypal if you dare try that site.

I guess since they are not available from other (reputable) sources they can charge what they want. If indeed, as Kattenvriendin has alluded to, they are not scamming us. Caveat emptor.

Do you recollect the discussion back in the beginning of 2011? viewtopic.php?f=1&t=20333
The criticism was never ending. (I got a lot of heat then, because I seemed to be the only one who was content with the puzzle. :wink: And now I have got three of them.)
Later you could buy a spherical core and Burgo and I were the only ones who ordered one and liked the result.

And now, you have to pay € 90 for this well criticized puzzle?
How very funny :roll:

The Dino cube is a very boring puzzle. The Dogic (second run) is a poor moving puzzle.
Rarity asks nothing from either of these values. For some the rarity of the object is what makes it desirable, regardless of other worth.

Dave (who likes all of those puzzles, even if they weren't rare)
