Hello all,

I've recieved this little beauty in the mail this morning :D
Heiowge made this as a commission for me, and I have to say it's perfect!

At first I told him a forest borg would be cool, so he started making it, and called it the woodland borg, but then it looked like a camo borg as well, so I thought the name WoodLand Borg was pretty cool 8-)

I saw pictures of it before it was shipped, but when I recieved it, it was much better than I had anticipated!! The borgs are really some amazing puzzles!

Finally, I really appreciate the hard work Heiowge passed into making this puzzle, with a brand new theme. As I am now the owner of this perfect puzzle, it will not be on ebay, but I'm happy I now have the pride of my collection in my hands!

I hope you will enjoy it!!

The video is here as well !!!

Enjoy the TomZ'ed pictures too :lol: !

Thank you so much Heiowge !!!

- Greg :D

P.S: I know the sound is still not synchronised with the video, but I think it's a problem with my camera and/or converter.

Has he posted this before, or is this completely new? Just asking for the puzzle list :wink:
On another note, this is one puzzle that (if I had it) I would never mess up, I would just leave it to sit and look pretty :lol:
Very nice!

Yes it is a new puzzle. The scheme is adapted from the camocube design, but the cube is all borg at heart.

This "borg" concept is obviously an allusion to a book/movie/show/etc. Which is it? Thanks,

Star Trek, of course! Haha a very good series, the Borg is essentially an evil supergenius, quick to adapt to change, making it hard to conquer.
