the dino cube was made by gluing pieces of formica to a rainbow cube. the formica makes the dino cube sharp and fragile. the starburst cube has an alexanders star type or pattern but with only 4 colors. with only 4 colors this cube has proved to be very confusing. i originally got the idea of the starburst cube from reeech's old avatar. what do you guys think?

Very amazing. Very amazing!
I'm very jealous of your Dino cube! Can you give a guess as to how much the supplies cost you, and an apx on build time for it?

The Starburst Cube was originally called the "X Cube" by Adam Zamora.

I got to play with one. It belonged to Darren.

Adam Z's was cut more. ;) The corners were also affected by the V shape cut, not just the edge pieces.

it cost $30 for a 2 foot by 4 foot sheet of formica. it cost $30 for a rainbow cube. and i messed up 2 times before getting it right so the total time was at least 10 hours

i think that my sticker pattern is a bit different which is why my name for it is different, but if i'm wrong please correct me.

I'm sorry... I apologize, I thought it was cut more.

Anyway, here's a pic of Adam's.

The X cube was first made by Jurgen Brandt, not Adam.
