I would love to see a picture of your whole collection Andreas.

I think you may have the most "complete" collection of anybody on the forum.

Me too! It is spreaded about 2 locations. I hoped I can overcome this next year.
But to give you an appetizer: This is a current photo of one location:

You have quite a half-collection Andreas!

The diversity of solids is astounding.

Thank you all.
I strife to make the collection of solids even more diverse.

Regarding the skewbs: I bought some Skewb-cube and Polymorphix's and reassembled them to get some UltimateSkewbs (for raw material). Several Skewb are left over... and only 6 bandaged Skewbs are left so I am really wondering what to do with them.


For Doubleyou:
that big tetrahedron with its yellow side showing?
You mean the Pyrainx?
viewtopic.php?f=15&t=17161

octahedron megaminx?
You mean the Octahinx?
viewtopic.php?f=15&t=13153

star thing on top shelf?
Small stellated dodecahedron Skewb
viewtopic.php?f=9&t=15116

more stuff on middle shelf..? :)
Sorry. To imprecise.
But there are (amongst others)
- Square Pyramid
- TrueEdgesOnly4x4x4
- Rhombicinx
- Trajbers Octahedron 4x4x4
- Trajbers Octahedron 4x4x4 (faceless)

Maybe you can sell or swap them. :idea:
I'm always up to a deal! :wink: :D

More to come on both points but please calm down. Nothing spectacular.

@Oliver: Swapping Skewbs? For what?

I actually need a skewb, but I don't know what I'd give you for one.

There are only 7 left so far. And one is about to be slaughtered in the near future.
I think Mefferts should be your source of choice.
