I'm looking for some advice. I want to start making some 4x4x4 mods (Wall and 2x2x4) and I'm looking for some advice. I have several Rubik's Revenges from the 80s that I could use, but I'm thinking I should keep them in their original condition for collect/trade value. Am I better off buying new 4x4x4s from Rubiks.com? Has anyone used these for mods?

I used rubiks.com cubes and meffert cubes. I thought the rubiks ones were of better quality for making mods. I have never used the original ideal versions. There used to be some info under the article section on the twisty main site about the different 4x4x4 puzzles

The advantage of the orginal 4x4x4 is that there is a screw on one blue center under the logo. This makes it possible to dissamble a new 1980 version without any problem. The plastic is a bit different but they have supperior stickers, this is the bigest advantage

Mods that require truncating of the 4x4x4 cubies would be easiest on the Meffert's Master Cube. The Meffert's Master Cube cubies are much more solid than the Rubik's Revenge.

See this tread for more info.
