After I got my Greenhill's Cube, I thought it was time to take a picture of the 3x3x3 cube mods I have.
There are shape mods, material mods, size mods, sticker mods, combined shape and sticker mods,
mods made by myself, mods made by others and factory made mods.
Of the sticker and size mods only one example is shown.

That's an amazing collection of cubes, as always! How small is the cube in the 4th row down, 7th over?

I must be rather tired, because all I see 4th down 7th over is a keyboard cube.

Unless thats what you are talking about?

Sorry about that- I didn't realize that the picture was bigger.

That is pretty small.

Georges, I see a couple that you don't have-or rather, I don't see a couple that I have that you don't. :lol:

(I almost never make sense after an afternoon of examining.) I see that Chinese made pineapple, Have you got the chinese made 3x3x4 and 3x3x5? If I didn't send them to you, let me know and I will. They are a dime a dozen here-so to speak.

Here is another view of this cube:

sitting between some mini books.
Here is a comparison to a standard cube.

It is a 1x1x3 for a doll house and I have still one of these for sale in my shop

EDIT: Sold to Sven

The band on the mini cube says Rubik's CBUE!!!

Thank you for the offer Rox.
I see that I have not found all the cubes I have.
I have the two you mention from rubiks.com made by Duane.

Yep, it's a 3x3 mod. It's an x-cube if I recall correctly. (Don't quote me on that. I might be wrong)

It's flambore's X-Cube.
I prefer to call it crumbled cube though.

Had I named it, that would have been a great title for it. It's one of Alokin's designs, and I just went with what he called it.

I am honored to see two of my puzzles in your collection, Georges! (Axis and the Crumpled Cube). :) I also used to make the triangular prism, but I know you bought that one from Josh B. I only ever made white ones.

Very nice collection. What is the one 5th row down, 7th column? It looks very strange.

It's a sticker mod of a half truncated cube.
It is also slightly different in shape in that the points are sanded flat and have the sticker design on them.
