If anyone who also owns one of these cubes in this packaging style:http://www.hlavolamy-puzzles.cz/otocne/ ... ubikSl.jpg
could please let me know a little more about it I'd really appreciate the info. I've seen the Polytoys variant with the gold band at the bottom a few times but I only know of one other Twistypuzzle member who has almost the same version as the one I have. Mine is marked 1981 made in Hungary and distributed by Ideal Toy Corp Hollis New York 11423. It has an Arxon sticker on the top of the packaging but the other persons in the link above has a Politoys sticker on the top of his packaging. Does these cubes have the same internals as a Deluxe Cube since this is also tiled or is it just your standard cube internals? Were these widely available for retail sale within the USA or was it a special order item only through a catalog? I was always under the impression before that these were only sold in Germany.
