I got my Super Cubix from ebay. Seriously, it's your best bet.

The company that made them went through some reorganization. However, the new company told me back in February that the Square-1 should be back in stores this fall, which can mean anytime until Dec 21st. http://www.itoys.ca/square-1.html shows that they have the new packaging. I swear I've seen this on E-bay, so don't go spending a ton of money on a packaged Square-1 if you see one like this. Chances are if you wait a few weeks, you'll be able to get one for cheap.

I got one from eBay, just arrived yesterday.
It cost me less than $10 with shipping, but I bid on several before getting one that cheap.

It's nice to see that they will be produced again... too bad that Greenhill tetrahedron couldn't be a production puzzle too.

yeah, i'm currently bidding on a square 1 and so far, it's only 2.25 USD. hopefully i'll get it for less than $5. i don't feel like spending much.

If you want a Cube 21 instead, try Hendrik Haak's puzzle shop. Advantages are (1) in my experience it's easier to remove the face plates so that you can adjust the screw and lubricate the circular "rails" easily, (2) after adjustments and lubrication you may end up with a better-turning puzzle than Square-1, and (3) the puzzle already has vinyl stickers. Disadvantages are the price/shipping cost and the fact that there seems to be no standard colour scheme.

Hey, have a look at the title of this auction and you'll know how to search/find a Square1 in the future:

I got mine by searching daily for 'Super Cubix' because I knew not as many people would see that and bid on it.

I might have been wrong on this. I've gotten my Square-1's from the link Jordan posted and the different logo seems to be that of Pavillion, which seems to be some Toys R' Us repackager. This is different from what my first Square-1 was, so that's why I was confused. So maybe there's not new packages just yet.
