That's pretty sweet lookin'!!!

To anyone who bids on this, I have to tell you I own the red version. It's very well made and I can only guess how much better this one can be.

This should be well worth it to anyone's collection :D

Good luck with it Adam!

i just finished a Certificate of Authenticity for this one as well.

it is well made as you can tell in the videos. there is some lockup if you turn it too quickly. besides that is is very good. it is just as rare as the Red Version, there will be a few more different colors for the next ones that i make. i only plan on doing these every few months.

Very nice Adam! I like the looks of this one more than the red one.

Right now I am in the middle of making two dice 2x2x2. A green one and a red one.

No. He cuts them down as far as he can and then hollows out the appropriate ammount of plastic from the die, and then attaches it. For the centers, he sands them down and glue half a die to them.

This is all from observation, so I might be completely off.

if you look at the original posting of the red dice cube you can see pics of the internal mechanism. the 4th and 6th picture in the 2nd set of pictures give you the best view.
