w00t! I wonder who won it, and if they are from this forum or not...

As usual, the winning bid of $3550 was placed during the last minute or so - kinda makes me feel sorry for whomever it was that bid $3500 just 12 seconds earlier :cry:

An orginal Dogic for under $90. Wow was this a steal given the Mefferts that went for way more not so long ago (the original is superior in movement and colors).

A Rotascope (image unknown) here for only $108 and a rotascope with a green body (I've never seen that before) here fro $138.

A Cohan Circle for $252.

A Skewb Octahedron by made by Gerd Braun and Jean-Claude Constantin for only $108!

Those are some very nice puzzles (all by the same seller) for pretty good prices. I should have bid higher, but I didn't seriously think I was going to get any.

Recently bought these..

Axis Cube for $125
Hex Prism 1 for $300

Medium Container for $493.44
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... 0300166820
I'm satisfied with the price, considering the rarity of this puzzle.

Hexaminx for $720
viewtopic.php?f=4&t=12782
Satisfied, since it would have been gone much higher if it were on the auction.

Boxed Missing Link for $26.99
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... 0035712391
I think I got this for a very good price.

2x2x2 Circle Cube for $713
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... 4548611url
Not a bad price, considering the price of 3x3x3 Circle Cube. ($1585)


I just realized that I have never lost a single auction I'm involved in.. :roll:

Jason, congratulations! Such nice puzzles and so many of them!
I've never seen a Rota puzzle in a nice container. Mine is in a card box.
Do you know if the puzzles sold by planet90_0 are in boxes/container? There is nothing on that in the descriptions.

Everything I've bought from planet_90 has been great. Nothing in package, if I remember right. All loose with some play wear. But nice unique puzzles, and from a great collector!

The Rota, Figurenmatch and Rotos were all from another seller, though.

The Trick-Haus was also from the same seller as the Figurenmatch.
Good to know that you got the Naef 2x2x2.
I wanted to have it also, this is why:
My Naef puzzles come in their original Naef boxes, here the gold-white one
http://www.helm.lu/gallery2/main.php?g2_itemId=618
But I regularly saw pictures of this puzzle with asterisks printed on them
(first I saw this in Vadim's collection)
Now I guessed that these were markings to show that they were 'custom' Rota puzzles,
i.e. sold under license.
If you receive your puzzle, I would appreciate receiving a scan of the accompanying insert.

Yes, Reeeech, I'm trying to bury the pain of losing my Petaminx!! :) These auctions did help a little, but not enough. :)

Georges, I'd be happy to scan everything and take photos of the puzzle and the package. I'll let you know when I receive it.

4x4 Hexagonal Dipyramid for 475 USD!

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... 0389005419


That bidder 4***7 always trys to pay obscene amounts of money for various puzzles. Just about a month ago he bought a Skewb Ultimate for $199. Maybe a week or two ago, a pillow cube for $156 and a keychain wonderful puzzler barrel for $56. Any auction he gets his hands on always jumps up to crazy prices nobody in their right mind would pay. If I ever auction something, I hope he bids :D .

That sounds like a lot for a hexagonal dipyramid!

The bidding war between the two bidders took this up from $125.50 to $475.00 and it looks like the current high bidder was ready to go up to $510-$520. I guess that's maybe why people snipe auctions?

It seems like the things we like to collect bring really strong prices!

Why? It doesn't necessarily mean that he missed winning it by $50. As I stated somewhere else reeeech may have bid $1,000,000 for all we know.

Yea 4***7 always nets you nice profits. Everytime I see him bid on your stuff I say to myself, "Paul's gonna make a killing"
Congrats on that sale! You really got your money, time, and efforts worth.

True... but at that price range, I was bidding in small increments!
And, no. I don't have $1,000,000 if anyone was wondering! :lol:

(maybe if it was Zimbabwe dollars! :P ;) )

Because it doesn't have an Arxon sticker, it is more rare.
These were sold in USA before ITC decided on another packaging (see below) for the States.
Seeing how good it looks, it's a bargain.

When I bid on this, I didn't reallize how little time was left, so I list it: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... 0329673825

I remember once seeing one go for over 100. Was that jsut a crazy price, or is this a crazy price?

yours is cleaner than mine http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&item=360142042585
but a planets cube for $20.50 is nothing to scoff at. I'll clean that puppy up in no time.
The funny thing is, about 4 months ago I emailed the seller and said I would give him $75 for one if he would send it with something else I won. I'm glad he said no :lol:

A tsukuda's square and a lot of puzzle currency for $113 http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&item=220382788464

And a inca type B for $56 is a lot cheaper than the last one I purchased http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&item=300302754911

I feel like I did fairly well with this lot of 12 puzzles. An OrbIt, Missing Link, Impossiball, Wisdom Ball, Whip-It, and a couple of other puzzles- none of which I have previously owned (excluding the basic cube and the revolution).

Think I'm hooked on eBay browsing now though... looks like I need to get a job :lol:

I know this is a little behind schedule...but does anyone other than me seem to think one or both of these bidders on here could be involved in some sort of scheme to continuously bid simply to raise the price for the seller? Has anyone else besides me considered this could be the case? I'm not being accussatory (if that's a word) or anything, it just seems highly possible for something like this to happen....which I believe is part of the reason that people snipe auctions, as someone else said here earlier....

it usually went for 35-40$ ...it's not even an arxon


Because it doesn't have an Arxon sticker, it is more rare.
These were sold in USA before ITC decided on another packaging (see below) for the States.
Seeing how good it looks, it's a bargain.

hmm. ok, thanks for the info. i always thought the Arxon versions are more expensive than the Ideal. Maybe because i also have an Ideal (Made in Hungary, not Hong Kong) and got it for around 35$ (see images below). so is this one more valuable than the arxon?

My impression is also that i see ITC quite often in the ebay listings.

I know this is a little behind schedule...but does anyone other than me seem to think one or both of these bidders on here could be involved in some sort of scheme to continuously bid simply to raise the price for the seller? Has anyone else besides me considered this could be the case? I'm not being accussatory (if that's a word) or anything, it just seems highly possible for something like this to happen....which I believe is part of the reason that people snipe auctions, as someone else said here earlier....


I am the seller, and I take your comment very personal. I know 4***7 personally, she is from australia and I have sold more that 12 puzzle to her. Therefore she bids on a lot of puzzles, from a lot of different sellers. The winnig bidder also bought me several puzzles, and I also know him personally.

I try to be as honest as I can with all buyers, if they fight for an item, I have no control, I had posted 3 pictures and a video. They both knew perfectly what they were bidding on. I was the first surprised of the price of the auction, should I not accept this money? Hell no, Its my gain, I earned it fairly.

Do not pretend such things, This is just not right... And to my point, you are accusatory,( as you said)

I sold puzzle for ridiculous low price in the past, that is just the game in auction. If there is only one serious bidder, auction will be low as second bidders bid, even if the first was 100$ higher. But if more than one bidder are interrested, it can be very interesting...

I am not a crook

I have done a very smooth Dogic tile trade with poloquebec and can vouch for his trustworthiness and sincerity.


I think 4***7 is just rich :D

I'm very sorry. I honestly did not mean to accuse anyone of "cheating" or anything of that sort. I was a bit suspicious is all. Please do not take my post as anything related to an accusation of any sort. I completely understand that a bidding war between 2 or more ebay users can evolve during an auction, though the expectation of the outcome (the winning bid) was much lower in my opinion and therefore, I proceeded to question the legitamacy of the actual bidders.

This could also relate back to something that has been said before about the "value" or "worth" of a puzzle being as high as the amount one is willing to pay. That too, I completely understand.

Again, I apologize for offending anyone with my previous post.

Actually Frank says really bad things about you Rich and I've heard what you say about him. Are you both ready for my next auction?

THIS POST IS A JOKE

They are tiny. They don't grow in water.
It's a very easy puzzle as far as puzzles go. 14 beads for 14 spots with as near as I can tell, 3 double holes so some of the beads can get lost inside.
They are hard to come by, I've now seen 2 on ebay in the past month though so maybe not so hard anymore. Mine was a $210 BIN. You got a great deal Danny.

Glad to hear that. I was pretty sure I was getting it for a great price :D

Better luck next time, Calzone :wink:

You can thank my boss for his wonderful timing. :D You did a real good deal from what I'm told. I was asking around about the value of it myself.

Well, people get lucky. This time it was me :lol: I'm currently watching around 12 auctions since I went through the ≈2000 auctions in the rubiks section last night. Some I have no intention of bidding on and am simply watching so that I can post them here. But on a few of them, watch out :)

Actually, I just looked through them and most are BIN (some of which also have best offer). There are only 3 that are actually auction and out of those, I'd only image you being interested in 1 or 2... But since these all end in a week or so, you'll have more competition after that I'm sure :twisted:

What :shock: you don't go through those every day! What kind of collector are you :lol:

Don't you know you are supposed to go through eBay US, UK, Germany, Canada, Spain, and Taiwan on a daily basis? :lol: :lol:

Haha well considering it took me over an hour to go through all those, I don't think going through all the rest is even feasible. I may have to look today though.

Also, see the edit of my last post.

I really can't believe I missed that one. I had seen it and decided to bid... and somehow I never got to it.
:(

But I'm happy for you Danny!
