I think my collection is complete. If someone knows of a different style of packaging, let me know.

I think its time I join Twistypuzzles Annoymous. I think I have an addiction :)

Seems as if Spain and France had similar boxes.

WOW... all these packages already!

Nice finds...

BTW - Does anyone know if they are all the same? Just curious as to if any of them have a MUTE feature? Mine is so loud, it's really hard to play with in my apartment! :(

:? I wonder how many other Spanish, French, Japanese, German, Russian, etc I don't have. Oh well, it will keep me busy the next 10 years trying to find them. 8-)

Nice collection of revolutions you have there.

I used to think they were a waste, but after playing with one I really like it.


Interestingly, I had the opposite reaction. A business colleague bought me a pair of Revolutions as a gift, so I made an effort to appreciate them. But I really, really, really disliked the games. I doubt this electronic toy could've succeeded without the "Rubik" name, but that's a good thing because it demonstrates how powerful the Rubik's brand has become.

I'd rather play with a 30-year-old Merlin toy.

Or, better still, play with a 30-year-old. :wink:

About.com has a helpful review: http://toys.about.com/od/toptentoysof2004/gr/rubiksrevolutio.htm

Best quote (out of context!): "Rubik's Revolution is certainly trying very hard to make it big. Will it get there? I think so."

So do the other languages have the same female voice that is just annoying?

I agree that the volume is way too loud. It would be nice to turn it down a bit.

Plus, the green isn't as bright as the other colors.

Isn't the timer on it supposed to sound like someone turning a cube? That one really made me sick.

It's kinda fun though. It's only really bad to see it as a Rubiks look alike, and thinking how well Brain Warp was designed.

Press yellow and white centers during the introductory flash, this enters the volume mode (1-4)

Amazon Germany sends them out in a package that I have seen in your "Revolutionary Collection" picture, but the text is in German:

http://www.amazon.de/Jumbo-Spiele-GmbH-Rubiks-Revolution/dp/B000W03A3C/

I'm hoping to get one for Christmas, so maybe I can tell you about the German voice then.
