I'm trying to sell of a couple of duplicates to finance further collecting :) The two items are:

A Studio Cube signed by Erno Rubik. Some of you might remember an excited post by me a couple of years ago when meeting him.

A Domino Clone made by wonderful puzzler. Have you seen it before? I bet you haven't :)

You'll find them on eBay

I have one of these, but the box is long gone. Now I know it's a Wonderful Puzzler. Thanks for posting the picture!

That domino is fascinating. 45mm. I believe that might be the same as the superman(or was it spiderman) domino that's floating around. Other than its rarity as a unique collectible, I believe its internal mechanism is crappy like the groove domino. Not sure if it's the same mechanism though and I'd really like to take a gander.

Hah. Maybe I should have checked the auction before opening my mouth, so to speak. Groove or not, it's definitely something I would like to put into my collection.

It is the exact same size as the Superman or Marvel domino. I'm not sure what kind of mechanism they use, I've never looked too closely. I'll try to remember to look at mine tonight.

I don't know really. It's my first time as a seller on eBay, but from what I've seen previously, the final price of items can be almost random. But I'm hoping them to fetch quite a bit since the are very uncommon items.
