Hi TwistyPuzzles...I wasn't exactly sure which forum to post this in, so I figured this one would be the most relevant.

I got my Rubik's UFO earlier today, and I can barely turn the disks at all (1)! The twists of three pieces at a time are quite easily, though, so I don't really have a problem with them.

katsmom said it must be locking up, and now I'm trying to figure out how to fix it. I noticed that one piece seems a little out of alignment, even when everything else is (2). When I try to do a horizontal move, the cube is very stiff, and if I manage to make any progress, the aforementioned piece gets more crooked (3), and I thought that might have something to do with it.

What's going on, and what can I do to fix it?
