I might be putting up a PINK ES-5 in unused condition, how much would you buy it for/trade for it?

EDIT: it is an eastsheen.

Is this the one you're selling? If so, I'd pay around $10.

No, so far as I know, it is not ES, and that is not the same one. It has a stand that says Yong Jun Magic Cube.

Wait, it is an Eastsheen, the stand supplied must jsut have been the one they had! So it is a Pink ES-5.

I would have to see a picture of it sealed in the packaging before I paid anything more than $10 for it. To my knowledge ES has never made colored cubes. I might be wrong, but I've seen so many of them over the years, and having attended the trade fairs, you would think if ES made a pink one or any other color for that mattere they would display it at the fairs. they never have. Now, the Yong Jun Magic cubes come in many different colors: pink, green, yellow, red, orange...And they are good reproductions (I use those word loosly) of the ES cubes.

I think your first posting of the brand was probably correct. Sorry to disappoint you.

Are Yong Jun cubes good or bad? I know it isn't common, so is it rare to find a 5x5 by Yong Jun?

It might be rare in the Stats, but here every "junk shop" sells them. "Junk shops" to me are like a Ben Franklin They sell a bit of everything. Are there still Ben Franklin stores?

You might get one for me when you happen to see one. Blue would even be better than pink -)

Any ideas of a general sell price? It could be ES, and it could be YJ, so give a quote for both if you can. Even if you weren't to be the buyer, Pink 5x5's aren't to common. I was thinking I may get 20-28 USD(retail, here probably 16-22 USD), but I have no basis but the black and white ones.

Oh, and I am young and have never heard of a Ben Franklin store, though Ben Franklin was a president and the man who harnessed the power of electricity. Of course the pres. part may be over looked by other countries, I am curious as to how few or many countries even teach of the electrical aspect. You being in China, may you answer this question?

Georges, I just sent you a tiny box this morning. Still owe one. Will look for blue, and I know I have pink in a box somewhere.

I'm really baffled by this. In the American history I learned, Ben Franklin was never a President. Also I don't think he "harnessed" the power of electricity, just did experiments with it - I'd say Edison was one of the first people to really harness electricity.

I've never heard of Ben Franklin stores, but apparently they have a website, so I have now :)

LOL I totally missed the President part. Looks like schools are teaching things differently nowadays :lol: He was an ambassador, maybe that is what you were thinking. Hmm, one of the first printting presses, Poor Richards almanak, and a couple of other things can be atributed to him, but never president.

Ben Franklin Stores were all over the Northern Part of the US when I was growing up. When Mom went to the bank she would give my sister and I a dollar to go spend in the BF. We usually bought penny candy, but sometimes we got stuffed toys or some such thing from there. I remember begging for a dollar of my own one year so I could buy a tower of babylon keychain. I was told I had to save my 50C and buy it next time. :cry: Next time they didn't have them :cry: :cry:

As far as Ben Franklin is concerned, I think people automatically assume he was president because of his great involvement in politics and because he is on the $100.

But getting back on topic, I'm sure I could find this puzzle fairly easily if I looked. Or as Roxanne has said, they are all over HK. So as others have said, I would pay no more than $10 for this.

Can we see pics, and maybe even a video? I've never seen a pink 5x5.

I may not even have it anymore, I was asking. And actually, Ben Franklin wasn't a President. Still was curious as to how many thought so. If no one can answer the qustion, I will just end the topic. I really just want to know How much you would pay for a pink ES 5x5. Nothing more, nothing less.

well being that I never saw3 one before, I would assume they are rare, and if it really is an eastsheen, then maybe around $20

I found an older picture of it:

As you can see, it has orange, not purple, and I never replaced the stickers myself. As far as I know(since I haven't found it yet) it has the standard BOY color scheme.

There is a Ben Franklin craft store not far from here but it is going out of business. I live in North Carolina.

Sorry to carry this even further off topic.

If you have a minimum amount you want to get for it, then when you list it on ebay either put that amount as the starting price or have a reserve on it.

There are a lot of people interesting in cubes that do not even know about this site.
