All three are the same puzzle mechanically, right?
Where can I purchase this puzzle (besides eBay)?

Thanks for your help!

That German shop....forgot the Url, but the postage is by land and it's extortionate, Ebay is your best bet to be honest.

Jason, Supercubix and Square1 are bassically the same, with other name.

Cube21 is quite different, although inside mechanism is the same, they feel quite different. I recommend you trying 2 of them (supercubix or square1) and cube21. Then you will be able to make your choice.

Personally.......... Cube21.

Please, note that I'm not an expert about that....... Just my opinion.

Let experts answering you....... ;)

I agree with Pembo. eBay is your best bet. That's where I got mine 3 days ago. :D I love the puzzle. I'm glad I took it appart and lubed it. It's a cool mechanism.

I haven't seen the Cube21 mech though. I'll take Rasta's word on it though.

What would you consider a fair price for this puzzle (new? used?)?
I could have sworn that i saw this puzzle from an online store.

Uh oh Jason, im currently bidding on the square one's on ebay right now. And i'd just HATE to have to fight you for them. lol, tell me if you plan on going for these, and maybe we can split them instead of paying through the nose for it. ;)

Square 1 for $28 + $5shipping (non e-bay)

I also found some good e-bay ones (however, I'm trying to stay away from ebay if i can...)

I asked producer Irwin Toy (see http://itoys.ca/square-1.html) where to buy them and got the answer that they decided not to produce it this year and that I'll have to do a web search.

Well, the prices there could be pretty blowful, for bidders and sellers alike. Take my current auction, for example... It's been on for 10 days, less than 80 minutes to go, a custom mod that took a month (full time when I was out of work) to design, and so far it's only at $20.00... :cry: 4 bids, 16 watchers... if it doesn't take a massive jump at the end here, I may never sell on eBay again, and only sell through here and my own web site, setting prices that I'd like to make for them and what I think they're worth. L8r.

I know what you mean. I've sold things worth $100 that go for $50 and things worth $50 that go for $100. It's very unpredictable!
