Hey, I have been thinking of making a extended 3x3x5...maybe...out of white DIY cubes :)

How much do you think it would go for on eBay?

Thanks.

not much unless it's fully functional.

it's been made many times before, so the demand might not be high. although you may find buyers.

It might sell for $100 not $400. $400 is a bit of a stretch in my opinion.

Tony's 3x3x5 cuboid was sold for almost $600 last March. ;)

correct! that's why i mentioned fully functional. if it's just extended, i'm afraid he might not get much.

it is still fun to play with and if you just want to make it to make it, it's worth it for practice ;)

Not to try to be mean or anything but where did you mention it was fully
funtional? It mentioned it on ebay.

Actually, Tony is not a puzzle builder... he is a puzzle wizard! :D

I remember when he posted some photos of the process for creating the golden cube. They show the effort and dedication he puts in them to make them perfect. And of course, the 3x3x5 he did is no exception, the quality is remarkable. (and a lucky guy named reeeech knows about this fact first hand LOL)

The 3x3x5 extended was sold by rubiks.com (at the time Hessports) in 2004 for $39 and the 3x3x4 for $29.
They were made by Duane Cash.
Today someone (Duane Cash himself) sells the 3x3x5 as well as the 3x3x4 for only $129.99 here:

Thanks.

If you sell the SAME puzzle (i.e. 3x3x5 fully functional...) the price surely depend on who is the seller!! :roll:
If T.Fisher sell the cube ...maybe over 800 $, if the SAME cube is sold by someone else...maybe less then 100 $... :shock:

if you have 2 white DIY, you might as well try making a functional 3x3x5 :P would certainly be worth the effort if you can fetch a $600 price tag.

Weren't Duane Cash's puzzles just extended? Not fully functional?

Yep. What I don't understand is why he sells his extended and fused for a
fairly high price.
