I feel this is a bit contradictory because it's the collecting board, but I couldn't think of an active topic like this.

I'm currently at Anime Expo, and saw the Eni puzzle booth. They had this on display.

The brail puzzle signed by Sylvester Stallone. Not for sale, but wow it was cool to see.

it certainly is unique,
but is there some connexion between Stallone and this puzzle?

Rocky beats people up physically, and puzzles beat people up mentally. :lol:
But joking aside, I have no clue.

A quick Google search reveals that the Eni puzzle was featured in a Stallone/Schwarzenegger movie called "Escape Plan" in 2013. [Source: http://www.nydailynews.com/1.1486767]

Also, since Stallone charges $395 per autograph, this is definitely one expensive Eni puzzle. [Source: http://gawker.com/1444650120]

Edit: See screen captures from the movie here: viewtopic.php?p=321256#p321256

Peace,

It's not even very neat. I'd pay more if it was neat. :lol:

How about Drewseph's Starminx II? I believe there's only one in existence.
