I got a message from hknowstore today saying there was an issue in at the factory with the white body black sticker ones and would I change my order to a different one. Anyone know anything about this? According to them it will be one or two months before that one becomes available to ship...

Strange, My white body black sticker one is just fine, direct from mefferts.

I ordered a white body, black sticker Ghost Cube on the first day you could pre-order and it has yet to arrive. With other people getting them, and some of them are not very from me, it is making me rather uncomfortable.

Same here, I ordered on the first day as well, because hknowstore had them at the exact same day as mefferts. Im going to be quite irritated if I do not get the color I wanted.

I ordered mine directly from Mefferts. I ended up ordering a black body with white stickers a few days later. As long as I get both of them, I don't care which one comes first as long as I get one soon. I've been looking forward to this mod for so long, the day I decided to drop money on a hand-made one, the announcement for pre-orders for the mass-produced ones popped up and I instantly purchased one. I've been anxiously awaiting its arrival and instead of playing with mine, I've been reading about how other people have been getting theirs...

I received my Black body Ghost Cube today. Needless to say, it's very nice.
I noticed mine also had a Mefferts/Adam logo on one of the sides.

I was pleasantly surprised and received my white ghost cube today. I guess the rumor about the white bodied ghost cubes is true if they sent this to me first. It's a really nice looking puzzle, turns fine. I can't wait to mix it up and give it a solve.

I received mine just yesterday, but what made it especially unique is that my 2x2 Ghost cube arrived the very same day.

It's fate I tell you. :lol:

I am very jealous of everyone getting their Ghost cubes. I wont have mine for a long while as I opted for a Metalised version. Maybe I was wrong making that choice?..

Today is April 25th, end of month is near :)
I got my golden sticker version two days ago.

I made this post more than a year ago.
That post was triggered by the handmade version from Hungab to your right. This was my Ghost number 2.
To your left you see one of the first two Ghosts ever made. (If you are interested you can read more about it in the thread I've linked above.)

Image

The Golden Ghost is #3
The following three pictures show each of the three in a front view / back view fashion like in Gelatinbrain.
To your left are the faces F, U, R, to your right B, L, D
Can you spot the difference(s) between the three?

Image

Image

Image

No, I do not mean the coloured stickers from Hungab.
#4 will be shipped soon (blue metallized).
Adam knows what I'm expecting as #5 and #6 :)

(I'll admitt that I'm curious, but Adam is under no pressure. Actually, my wife will put away #5 for more than two years. Sounds puzzling? :wink: )

I received the 6 Ghost Cubes I ordered (A full set and an extra white stickers on black body) a few days ago. To my surprise, all 6 of them were signed.

The #1 and #3 look identical to me (Except the fact that #3 has a missing sticker on the piece with the Meffert's logo)
#2 looks slightly different in the cuts (Some pieces are bigger than on the original one.)
#5 will be Heavy Metal, right?

That's all correct. Do yours have the sticker that is missing on my golden piece with the Meffert logo?

Mine doesn't have that sticker, or the Meffert's logo. Maybe if CubeSmith makes stickers for these he can include that small missing one.

Two of mine are missing this sticker as well. From what I could tell, it is the only flaw about these puzzles.

I received my Ghost Cubes last week and I am very happy with them. I am not missing any Meffert's logo stickers however if you look at the picture with the signed sides you will notice that a few of the smallest stickers on the puzzle are missing, I do not care much for these stickers so it is alright!

Even using a looking glass I couldn't find out which caps you mean. Can you possibly show a photo?

I thought I'm suffering from a special addiction and now I see that several of you have bought many Ghost cubes at once. :lol:

The left piece has a cap while the right piece doesn't. All four triangular corners and that edge are missing caps.

I'm one of them, and I'm probably going to regret it. It was a fit of recklessness. I suspect I'll end up selling one or two on to someone who couldn't get a signed one...I don't really *need* 5 (6 if you count the purple one I also bought...7 if you count Hungab's one) ghost cubes now, do I? :shock:

Hi all,

I still haven't received mine.

I ordered a black cube with silver (or gray) stickers.

Is there someone who could tell me how to contact mefferts to get the status of my order? I paid for this thing so long ago, I almost forgot about it until I stumbled onto this thread.

Thanks!

Hello to All!

This is to inform you that due to the phenomenal response to the Ghost cube stickered version we had to stop selling them for a few days, as sales where outpacing production which is very time consuming.

We are now happy to announce that you can once again place your order whilst stocks last.

Happy Puzzling and a big Thank You for your strong support!
Ulrich and Uwe.
My watch shows still the 28th, but it is the 29th already in the Far East. :wink:

Thanks. It looks pretty much like "Mefferts" except for the dot over the e. Maybe it is part of the M.

Yes, that is a little odd. I wonder if there is actually some sort of accent on the e when spelled correctly.

BTW, his name is Uwe Meffert. Meffert's is the name of the shop. The genitive is used in "Uwe Meffert's signature"

That's funny, my white ghost cube came, too, and it is also missing caps on these pieces.

**EDIT**

Oh my god, even my black bodied, white stickered one is missing caps. No wonder these puzzles are catching more than I figured they would. :shock:

I just sent a message on Mefferts.com about this inquiring about this and if I could get replacement caps.

Still no word about the missing caps (or any reply from Mefferts.com), which really disappoints me. I know Uwe lost money on this puzzle, but if they were going to cut corners this way, it'd be nice if they cut the price a little, too, or at least been honest about it! Because in my mind, this is an incomplete puzzle, now. And it's the same on both of mine! And it feels like this was done on purpose hoping I wouldn't see it because the uncapped pieces don't actually extend from the puzzle and the missing caps are kind of hidden as you scramble the puzzle (except for the edge pieces missing the cap, that is obvious depending on which center piece it is next to). As much as I love this puzzle, I would have been more patient if it meant getting all the pieces capped.

My black/white set arrived.
I do not like the stickers. They are way smaller than they should be. Is anyone selling the better sticker set for these?

Man, seeing all these posts about missing caps, delayed shipping dates, poor communication with buyers, and everything else... this whole release seems like its getting butchered. I'm very glad that I recevied mine with no issues; this seems like an abnormal number of problems for a puzzle release.

If you scan all the faces and send them to cubesmith, he'd probably be able to get a set up and out.

Hi today I created my first youtube video on my new channel SuperUberCuber. I plan on making many more videos in the future and I would greatly appreciate it if you subscribed and/or liked my video. My first video is an unboxing and review of 5 signed ghost cubes. http://youtu.be/HcuqQxiUPrY I would appreciate any feedback for videos to come. Thank you :solved:

Apparently the delivery guy messed up with delivering my white body, black sticker ghost cube. Said it couldn't be delivered (couldn't find the address though I have never had an issue with it before) so they sent it back from the Unites States to China...Looks like I'll be waiting quite a while for this one.

I got mine yesterday. I too have some uncapped pieces. The uncapped pieces on mine seems ot be the corners with the smallest hole at one end, I put a bit of silicone lube in the puzzle and the fact that there are some caps missing doesn't seem tobe affecting it at all. On my puzzle you cannot see that these corners are uncapped unless you pry the pieces apart to look. My real complaint would be that some of the edges pieces have a prety sharp ridge on them where the cap for the edges pieces meets the rest of the molded piece and doesn't line up correctly leaving a sort of sharp overhang.

All in all I really think that these uncapped peices will not affect the puzzles function and do not take a lot away from the look of the puzzle, Although the stickers could be bigger like some others have stated. I am really enjoying it especially since I could not afford to get a handmade one.

I recognize that uncapped pieces photo further up in this thread from some knockoff 3x3 brands. It is a bit annoying to mod with those particular pieces as I have to fill them up.

It would be nice to have proper edge pieces (they are edges, right?) capped for a puzzle like this one. Do they show when you are solving? As in: when the puzzle is scrambled?

I have not yet disassembled mine (black body, golden stickers) and I was not able to recognize ANY caps - even when I used a looking glass. I do not assume that my eyes are sooo bad :wink: . So, this is either a problem of individual puzzles, are something you can recognize only on a disassembled puzzle.

EDIT: After Gus' post below I tried it again and I could spot a few caps while doing ordinary turns. No missing caps as far as I could see.

See the photo in this post where you can see the caps removed. I'll also note that at least one of the pieces in one puzzle had a missing cap.

My black/white set arrived.
I do not like the stickers. They are way smaller than they should be. Is anyone selling the better sticker set for these?


Ya I like the look of the stickers with less gaps. I'm hoping Oliver will have them in stock soon. If not, then I will just take out the stickers.

Same here.. I like less gap on a ghost puzzle and the seemingly huge ones on this one didn't appeal to me.
