What do you think? It think it's kind of cute. I decided on the name Fused Cube because it operates the same as one side of Fused Cubes.

Maybe it needs a better name. Any suggestions?

Are the big ones from a large cube? I remember you got that pack with about 10 different sized cubes...

I checked my monster sized cube (same one you have, james) its also the same as wayne has. It seems that he did use that, although we still need his answer to confirm it.

On a sidenote,
I got my 90mm cube from peter pan broken, but he sent another. It doesnt turn all that bad for a clone. What do you think james? wayne?

At first it was a bit stiff, i guess from not much use... Now it works quite well. you still have to make sure its all lined up perfectl;y before you try and twist it, but overall im very satisfied. you say theyre clones - clones of what? were there ever real official rubiks giant cubes?

Nice!

IMHO: From a mechanical point of view, nothing wrong with that name! I'd stick with it.

How about this name: Constipated Cube.... Just kidding. I like the tiles. Did you make them?

Remember those packs I found about 3 weeks ago? All different sized cubes. I was having a look at them the other day and the idea dawned on me.

I didn't use the standard size cube. This cube is the one between the regular size and the keychain size. I used the very largest cube for the big tiles. They were the closest match.

No, i dont think there were ever 3x3 giants made by ideal.
I say their clones, because they are supersized versions of the clones. They have the same rounded internal mechanism, unlike the Ideal/Oddzon ones.

I was making/selling those on eBay last year. I called them a "Hybrid Cube" at the time, because it seemed to be a hybrid of the standard cube and the Pocket Cube (mixes like a Pocket Cube, with the complexity of a standard cube, making it a pain and a half to solve). L8r.

This is definitely not a 2x2x2 cube. it has many more positions due to the possibility of messing up the edge pieces. in fact, any position which can be reached on a 3x3x3 cube which happens to have a 2x2x2 corner solved (the bit under the big tiles on waynes cube) can be solved using only the 3 free faces on a fused cube.
