katsmom: Ebay.com (US) does not pull auctions coming from foreign ebays? Maybe this is why I'm missing all these great finds you guys get.

Danny: I missed the Russian flower since I slept past my alarm, or you would have had more competition as well :P 6am, too early >_>

Wow, I'm surprised at how much competition I should have had. I was planning on staying up to watch it, but with an hour and a half to go and no bids for a while, I just went to bed and figured I'd either get it or I wouldn't.

Yes, that's a good price.
Some are rarer than others (made in Taiwan, Macao, Korea and Hong Kong / assembled in Canada, Haiti / packaged in USA, Canada ...)

Congratulations!
Luckily for you I already have one of these (that I paid way to much compared to this auction),
otherwise the price would have been a little higher :-)

Rubik Rubix Cube Würfel 3-D Slide Puzzler 3x3x3 RAR ! for EUR 41.91 $54.76

I think this is an IQube?

In the twistypuzzles-database there is no price for this puzzle, is this a good or a bad price? (I am not the buyer)

If that is true... could someone PM me Wu's contact info? I'd love to get one for myself.

Thanks,

Rox, that's actually listed as a valid reason to retract a bid.
ebay policy wrote:
[You may retract a bid if] You accidentally entered the wrong bid amount due to a typographical error. For instance, you bid $99.50 instead of $9.95. If this occurs, you must reenter the correct bid amount immediately after you retract your bid. Changing your mind is not a typographical error.

Thanks Danny, I didn't realize that. But I don't think that would work after winning, and I have purchased a number of puzzles from that seller before and wouldn't want to have him ban me from bidding on his auctions again. I'll just have to be more careful next time and stop talking about strawberries.

Yes, I realize that this doesn't help much for that auction. It was just meant so that you now know for the future if that happens again. :)

We'll hear from you if you think it is a self-made puzzle or not (kind of 'from two make one').

I'll let you know Georges. And if it is, I'll be mighty upset. That wasn't stated. Looking at the picture though, I don't think so. But you never know.

Actually, that's exactly why I didn't bid on it: because I assumed it was self-made. If you look in the middle of the puzzle (where the two would join) you can see what appears to be (at least to me) a separation line.

I was fooled by the 'separation line' in the beginning, but this seems to me to be where the puzzle is a little bit more loose in the centre. These lines are part of the puzzle (I have several to look at :-).
It's because I never saw one of these that I'm curious.
Hopefully you will own now a very rare 'unique' item Rox.

Well I don't have a Varikon so I'll take your word for it. I'm now very interested too :)

Based on the eBay photo I'm seeing, I don't see how it could be anything but a homemade mod put together from two 5-row Varikon puzzles. I don't have solid proof from the listing, but I also don't see the financial motivation for any company to mass-produce a Varikon of this size. This doesn't seem to have any mass appeal.

There exists a seven row Varikon, but it is differently shaped (not like the one Rox got).



As well as a 4 row version.



That's why I am so curious.

Here the one Rox won for immediate comparison:

I still miss the 5 row Varikon in my collection though.

I won this lot just now:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&item=370187556639

It comes with a Wonderful Puzzler keychain w/ box, 4 Rubik's brand keychain cubes, and what appears to be new Kibble Cube in package. I haven't seen this type of packaging before. Is there anything special, or is it just an ordinary Kibble Cube?

That's the packaging my Kibble Cube came in ages ago.
Unfortunately I threw the packaging away, and traded the cube.
This picture stirred memories, because I didn't know the square container packaging, only this one.

Looking at the bidding history, I'm guessing the buyer might have been a joke....maybe I'm wrong.

Go to the bidding history, and then scroll down to bid retractions. The bidder (with a feedback of 1) retracted a $2,000 bid, two $3,000 bids, and a $10,000 bid (and the fact that 3 off the bidding errors are within minutes of each other). Sorry, you don't "accidentally" enter bids wrong that many times. And if this person was even a minor interested puzzle collector, I'm guessing they'd have more than a single feedback.

On GCD there were three so called Dino Stars offered for 350 € / piece.
The colours were red, white and orange. Below is a small picture of the red one.

It's very similar to Instant Insanity with the difference that the balls are contained in a frame. Thus their position relative to each other is fixed. The balls have spots on them, the spots are in four different colors. The objective is for all four colors to show up on each side of the puzzle.
The name is Bognar-Büvös Golyok.
Here's Jaap's page: http://www.jaapsch.net/puzzles/insanity.htm

You could try and ask Oliver if he has left one or two, supposing you want to spend 350 euros.

Why? Are they still available in shops or terribly often on Ebay for lower prices?
Not that I would want one, brrr.

I see the Homer head often, but haven't seen a Bart one on ebay for a while. The puzzle is only worth what the buyer is willing to pay.

That price sounds right for 2008/2009. Homer Simpson heads are common, but Bart Simpson heads are pretty rare on the open market.

I paid US $51.00 + shipping for my Bart Simpson head a few months ago.

theost expensive plastic 3x3 ever :D


Looking at the bidding history, I'm guessing the buyer might have been a joke....maybe I'm wrong.


The buyer left Erik a neutral feedback. But I don't think that the buyer paid, so Erik could file for non-payment and have that feedback not count against him.

Congratulations Calzone! You have finally acquired your prized Magic Octahedron, and at a fairly inexpensive price might I add. Good job!
