Does anyone have an idea of what these puzzles cost? How do they compare to mefferts? They are smaller correct? Do you think they will become widely available?

I would believe that these things will turn up in bargain shops like the new symetical 26 sided 3x3x3.

I would probably believe that these have been found from a source, but the source will also sell all over the world.

Yup! I think along the same track as u :)
As long as they are made in China, they 'should' be widely available bcoz labour resource is cheaper there, very suitable for mass production.
If the mini's were really that rare and limited to only a few, perhaps it should have been manufactured in Japan or something.
About the quality being better than Meffert's, I have no comment but I hope to get one to c how true it holds to rumour :P
As rare as it may seem, probably Andreas might come up with a perpetual supply of mini 4x4 & 5x5 just like the Master Magic (endless supply). He makes this particular rarity seem like any other common puzzle nowadays, just prepare US$40-50, and there you go, a brand new Master.
Similarly with the Vadasz variants, but we r lucky he's around to bring new innovations to the market :P

They are 3mm bigger than a standard 3x3x3.
the quality is better, according to Aswapti, whose real name i will not divulge without his permission.
I dont think they will be widely available. The 5x5 is copying meffert's 3-d copyright...
Andreas told me the manufacturer had a limited number, very small. So, i guess they dont have the facilities to be widespread...

I would doubt this too. You wouldn't spend thousands of dollars to make molds and then only sell a handful.
