Has anyone attempted a Magic assembly from Rubik's new kits? I have mine, but I must admit that their RealPlayer video leaves a bit to be desired, so I have yet to risk actually putting one together. I'm also waiting for their 12-tile template link to get connected. Please let me know if anyone has successfully meshed the Hessport directions with the ones on this site.

Here is the reply I received from the Rubik's Website for the 12 tile magic.-------

The 12 Panel Magic uses the exact same principles as assembling the 8 Panel from the video. You should follow the assembly instructions for panels 5 through 8 and do that for panels 9 through 12.

If the whole Twisty community sent an e-mail demanding that the DIY Magic Kits be sold with instructions,
they might reconsider...

A couple of weeks ago, I had the intentions of making my Master Magic (Classic one with the gray background)
and a Master Magic (with the Black background I thought this would be way cool, since they weren't made in black) but after viewing the RealPlayer video... my enthusiast died down a wee bit, and I wrote to Hessport
to ask them about an eventual Magic Master video...

This was the actual answer I received:

"We won't be producing a video for the 12 panel, but trust that once a person who is meticulous and patient enough to assemble an 8 panel has actually made an eight panel...
they will understand how to extend it to the 12 panel."

Yeah, but personally, I wouldn't mind having an instructional booklet to "walk me through" the process of assembling an 8 panel or a 12 panel Magic or a "RealVideo".

As for printing the templates, legal paper is necessary.

My advice is to make a 2x2 (Junior) magic first (You have enough spare tiles anyway). After such warming exercise you will be able to build any magic without videos and instructions.
I also can offer my help by email one week later.
