I've watched several unboxings of this now and I decided I might buy this puzzle. But then I go to purchase and realize it's $38. I took flack last time for saying the Hexaminx was too expensive. There were lots of comments on how there were so many different pieces, and different molds are expensive. Same thing on the Ghost Cube. But here we have a puzzle with recycled core and as best as I can tell, only three pieces. How on earth is this is the same price as the Hexaminx and Ghost Cube??

Also: Black stickers on black plastic? Are you freaking serious?

Yeah, same here. :wink: I have got the six colour version and I would prefer the 12 colours, but black stickers on black body?

Maybe, the price is high, because the assembly of a ball puzzle and applying stickers on it takes much more time in the factory?

It seems the 12color version is the same color scheme as the regular mf8 dodecahedrons, with the replacement of cream (light yellow) with black. Too bad there isn't a cream colored set of stickers.
