Attention collectors, builders, and informants as to the whereabouts of rare, hard to find puzzles!

I am on the hunt for some skewbs to complete my collection and make one heck of a family portrait.

If anyone knows the whereabouts of the following skewbs on the run:

Elite Skewb
Royal Skewb
Master tetrahedron
Elite Tetrahedron
Royal Tetrahedron

let me know! Due to the fact that I have no want to spend time assembling, stickering, or dying, just twisting and solving right out of the box, I'm not looking for a DIY kit that requires me to do any DIYing, but something fully assembled and ready to go.
The rewards for finding any and all of these illusive Skewbs will be substantial, and perhaps beyond your wildest dreams! Never underestimate the possible rewards offered by an obsessed collector on a mission!

Most shapeways builders will assemble it for you if you pay some extra for it.
Now, can I get a cookie? :lol:

Yes! And I've contacted him, but have yet to receive a response. So I've come into a dead end. Find me the puzzles, and you'll not only get the cookie, but a lot of dough too!

I'm pretty sure Eric is very busy these days. I have a dyed, assembled, broken in, and signed (E.V. #3) Elite Skewb I bought from someone else at least a year ago.

I was planning on polishing my copy someday which undoes all of the work that has already been done on it.

If I'm able to get a replacement print I'd be happy to sell you my finished copy. Eric's STL is currently over the 1M triangle limit so I will contact him offering to reduce and pack his STL for him to get the process started :-)


Edit: Here was the original post where I purchased it: http://twistypuzzles.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=288004

I would want the same $200 I paid.

Aha, brilliant! Wow, in just over an hour, I already have someone coming to my rescue! I'll pm you, and will make sure the printing process is as smooth as possible. We'll discuss how I can contribute to ensure this.

Thanks rubikcollector123, another great resource revealed. However, I also contacted the designer of this puzzle, and I haven't heard back. So the hunt continues...

You could just buy it in BSF/WSF and assemble it yourself! :)

Traiphum makes master Skewb tetrahedrons (master tetrahedrons) for $200 (€147)(£117). You can contact him thigh email, Facebook, or PM here on the forum. I'm sure he will be very happy to make the puzzle for you.

Hi Jon,

I've had this hanging in my shop for a while, but haven't gone around to printing it seeing as I slowly lost motivation to build puzzles, but if you want to give it a shot you can always try to prototype it:

Micro Royal Skewb

Cheers :)
Greg

Doesn't work for me either. I also checked your shop, and it isn't there.

Ah, great suggestion! I have done just that. Now why didn't I think of that? Just go to the father of all modders :lol:

Thanks Greg, and I should have known that a micro version from you would be out there. But I too can't open the link, I don't know the secret handshake...
And what's this about losing motivation to build puzzles? That's like Van Gogh stating that he lost motivation in painting! The world needs you! Don't make me have Claus lock you in his basement again! 8-)
