Very cool picture! I currently have 8 skewbs, I think: 1 regular, 1 diamond, 1 ultimate, 2 eggs, and 3 golden cubes.

:lol: I have the balls too, but they are in a box on the balcony and since I've already made a mess digging out those, I have been threatened already. Maybe I'll get those one day and take a photo of all the variations I have. But it will have to be a day when Miss N is not home. She get's so mad when I pull out all the puzzles. :lol: She says I'm worse than Katherine and her toys.

Had she said that for me, it would be one of the biggest compliments I had ever received!

I'll send her over to clean your house. You should have seen her grumbling when I started pulling puzzles off the shelf to dust today. She's so afraid of breking one that she never ever dusts them. They get pretty messy after a while.

Quick question:
If I were to trade over the polymorphix and the Skewb-3D corners, will I get a Skewb and Skewb Ultimate?

:lol: :lol: sorry, I couldn't resist. Quick questions deserve quick answers and I hardly ever give a short one.

Those extra pieces are extentions. So you would get an odd looking thing at best.

:lol: Okay.
I figured it'd save me a little money if they would.

Thanks.


On topic: Awesome collection! I'm a big fan of the Skewb (Despite not having one :oops: ).

Actually, switching the corners of the Polymorphix and Skewb-3D does give you a skewb and a skewb ultimate. But I think you would need to apply other stickers, because they would not be correct.

Yes. You get both puzzles, but with wrong stickers for the Skewb Ultimate. The Skewb can be assembled with correct stickering. I know because I did it like this.

I would definetely get a Skewb from Mefferts, but getting a Skewb Ultimate this way will require new stickers, which isn´t very convenient. There are probably better places to get a skewb ultimate, but it wouldn´t be an original Meffert´s, thus a knock-off, but since meffert is not producing them anymore...

I'm sure finding a meffert's skewb ultimate wouldn't be too hard on ebay.

Scratch that, I bet it is. :(

I have 5 Skewbs at the moment - one each of regular Skewb, Diamond, Ultimate, Polymorphix, and Golden Cube. Hopefully more will be added soon. I really like that red egg...

Many of them can be seen here sorry, you have to scroll way down to the bottom to see them.

I'll try to dig them out next week when Miss N. isn't at home and take a picture of all of them together.

Notice, there are NO FAKES-yes they are available, but I don't have them. :P
