Here I leave you all a picture of part of my renewed collection. It's the main part, but still many things missing in the pic... :)

... and also I see that you managed to solve your Qubami! :D

hahaha, nice 7x1x1 right?

Yeah, I managed to solve my Qubami right after my flight back from Eindhoven (woooohooo, Eindhoven :P). It's a nice puzzle :)

Kelvin, you have very sharp eyes finding the Qubami at all and knowing that it has been solved! :D

I met Dave at DCD and was amazed how fast he could solve a 3x3x3, so I was curious to see if he solved his Qubami.

And I have to say, Dave certainly knows how to enjoy the Eindhoven night life ... and the company of beautiful ladies! :P

He stole my heart ages ago. Such a slick fellow he is! And plays with toys too! Can't ask for more than that can you? Oh wait-I saw Candles! I'm gone! :lol:

Those cases look very good for holding puzzles. What kind of cases are those?

Quite the collection... Could I 'borrow' the collection on terms of not guaranteeing return?

I have already added the video to the collection.

Thanks to all for the replies and the kind words.

Nothing to be worried about, Rox... :)

Yes Andreas, it is. I got it in San Francisco, during last year's IPP 29. I got a 4 coloured one as a trade and David Litwin kindly traded it for a 6 coloured one. Thanks David :)

Framework is from IKEA. It measures 20x60x190 cm, so it's perfect for puzzle-displaying purpouses. Then I got the glass shelved done by a glazier.

It's said in the description of the video I've just uploaded. I have around 700 displayed, but lots of them are not displayed (some boxed ones and a lot of repeated ones)

Sure you can... NOT :P. But you are pretty much welcome to visit it when you come to spain. Well of course, all of you are, in fact! Free tickets! :D

It doesn't look to me like that there are many KO's, if any. In any case, let's not make a topic about a great collection into another KO topic.

They look like Ikea Billy book cases with glass shelves and glass doors. I did the same thing and even added some lighting.
