I have bought many custom cubes from this seller (Mark). I have ordered several others from him directly. I believe he did have an add posted on this website sometime during the summer. Anyways. I wouldn't pay too much for any of his cubes since he has had several of these listed before. He will probably make one for you if you ask him.

I also wanted to add that they are excellent quality cubes. They are some of the best custom cubes I have purchased. I would by more of his creations.

"Cube turns easily and is made with high quality computer cut vinyl."

Sure seems like a custom job to me. Of course it's a moot point if you are saving yourself the trouble of making one and if it's of a high quality, then it's fine.

Nope, i'm not Mark Longridge, really :)
I bought a couple of these custom cubes from him and truly, they are pretty cool, turns smooth(lubed) and has that weight resembling those rubiks.com come with.
The vinyls are stickered quite neatly and these are really playable not just for decoration :)
Try solving the Shepherd's Cube(the one with only arrows), the difficulty of that 3x3 variation is comparable to the Tartan Cube, and Mark is selling the Tartan soon. Be sure to buy the legendary Tartan(one of the hardest 3x3x3 pattern ever created)
Again, i'm really not Mark :)

Well then the trust level rises accordingly. I just wish some of the former posters on the board would return to impart their knowledge and opinion, Mark Longridge being one of them.

I don't have the Rubenking or the Tartan but I did purchase from Mark the Shepherd's Cube. I have no complaints, the quality is good.

If you really want to have fun, ask him to send it to you scrambled. The Shepherd's is particularly interesting because the centers are worthless as a guide to solve the cube.
