I have quite a number of mods made mostly by people who are also members of this forum, but not exclusively.
On the picture below every puzzle is a sample from a different maker, except the sticker variations in the next picture.

Image

For the moment I am sorting through some more interesting sticker variations:

Image

The one on the left is by Philip Knudsen, the one on the right is the 'original' Tartan Cube, after Jim Saxe & Dan Hoey.
The one in the middle is from someone from this forum, but I can't remember from whom.
Any help is appreciated.

The one in the middle may be from Italrubik. I believe he offered this sticker variation a while back.

Is that a Christoph's Magic Jewel in there? Enlighten me Georges, I was under the impression that those were mass produced at one time. Am I wrong? I think I'm vaguely remembering that from an old archive out of Berkley.

Yes it is.
They were all hand-modded by Christoph from Polish octahedrons (no I don't [yet] have a Polish Octahedron).
Christoph had bought the remaining stock of these (several 100) ages ago when I only had enough cash to buy edibles.
We were talking about this during IPP in Prague and he was complaining that it was very hard work to sand the pieces after having removed the tips. The stickers were made by some shop.

I remember sending him an email around 12 years ago asking if he still had any. I think I was a day late :( That and the flower design cube that he made (sorry, I can't remember the name) were two puzzles I really wanted at the time.

I am surprised to see you don't have more mods than this. Umm, a post in another topic section made me assume you had many many more :lol:

Let's give credit to Fabio as long as this is not disproven.

I have *many* more mods, but I took this picture with *one* mod from every maker I got some.
I have f.i. 13 mods by Tony.
I am still searching all my cubes for more makers.

You said it, not me :lol: :lol: I'd love to see a pictue of all your different modifications. I'm running out of drool (and cash) though so maybe it's better if you don't post one.

Wasn't there just a Tony Fisher Mod on ebay that didn't sell? I had never seen that one in anyone's pictues before.

Thank you Rox.
It's one of the three new ones by Tony from DCD 2007.

I have the smallest one of these.

Frank has one for sure.

Made from a dogic? I haven't looked at Frank's page in a while. To be honest, I'd forgotten it was there. Sorry Frank. So saying it was 190 pounds, That seems a bit cheap. Doesn't it?

The official price was 260 euros I believe; that would be about £190.

Yep, it's based off of a Dogic. The Nesting Cubes is one of the puzzles I could never understand until I found out the mechanism. And I agree, 190 pounds does seem low. And you say it didn't sell at all?

I'm quite sure that's based off of a Dogic as well. It's called the Rhomball.

Hi Georges,
yes I can confirm the cube is from italrubik. I have one in my collection, too:
Fabio's Armageddon Cube

And for those who are interested: here's a picture with the original price list from Tony:

Adam Zamora build a cube almost exactly like this and sold stickers for it. I bought some and made one for myself. The difference is in the last three few colors, which on mine are purple, light green and light blue.

On Georges photos he just showed, what is that puzzle on the left? It looks like a reverse-truncated Icosohedron or something... I don't see how it turns though... :?

Are you speaking of this one http://tiex.de/cubecorner/protected/images/pid252_pic1016.jpg ?
A Dogic mod.

The shape is called a stellated icosahedron. Tony Fisher just made the extentions look like there were a lot of 3x3´s ´nesting´. It´s called Nesting Cubes.

It looks like Tony needed to figure out something to do with all of the mini cubes he used to make the fake 9x9s :D

Oh, ok, that's what you guys were talking about, ok, well it looks pretty kool. Georges, you should show us your entire collection, I'm really curious as to how many puzzles the *famed* collector really has.

ok, I took a look at Georges collection, and he has a ton of puzzles! But one thing I noticed he doesn't have is a fully functional 3x3x5 cuboid. :wink: All the more reason for me to finish mine.

I don't think anyone has that many. I did hear of a collector who had 25,000 wooden puzzles though. From some website Pantazis linked to, I think.

I'm pretty sure Georges said on his collection page that that one was extended and what's with the 2x4x5 there? Does it work?

You are right elijah516, I should.
But it is a lot of work.
Here are some pictures I took in May 2005 while reorganising my collection
http://www.helm.lu/gallery2/main.php?g2_itemId=11241
and here are some videos
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k9zyZWDcGhM
I'm not satisfied with the videos, perhaps I will make new ones.

Oh my..... I don't even have a word... :shock: :shock: :shock: :o :shock: :o Each of those pictures have completely unique puzzles to eachother? You must have thousands Georges! I was greatly underestimating your collection size as under 1000, I now see I am mistaken. I see what you mean by the amount of work it would take to photograph and video all of this... *whistles* I'd love to see videos, but I now understand what you'd have to go through.Don't rush it is all I have to say.

Those pics look like you have thousands of cubes(or atleast one thousand) did you ever count? Also, when did you start collecting?

On the unpacked pictures many cubes are on several pictures, but it gives a good impression nevertheless of the volume.

I started collecting in 1981 and I have stopped counting them.
There are not as much though as the guess ofapel ventured.

Do you have a rough estimation of the total number of puzzles? 5000? 10000? 15000?

I do know it Frank. I just don't want to see EVERYTHING Georges has. The pain of the little green man will be too much for my weak heart. I wouldn't live through till morning. Between Georges, Pantazis and you sites It's bad enough already. I've found this collecting to be an addiction. If I see anymore pictures I shan't make it through.

Last year I emptied my teacher cabinet. Within a week it turned into my cube cabinet. That has now overspilled into my bookshelf (they had to go into the office and now get carried back and forth when I need them.) and the top of the china cabinet and the hutch. I've no room for more puzzles (even though I've ordered about 4 or 5 more) much less money :lol:

I'm on my knees now Georges, please don't recharge your camera batteries and find a free weekend...

Nice try sweetheart!

How shall I tease you? Or tempt you? Hmm....what can I bring to show you when I see you in HK that might make up for the torture your site has put me through this past year?

Here's the post from Feb 2007 where Adam offered these stickers. The original post was from 2004, someone bumped it 3 years later in 2007 asking if Adam was willing to sell any, and he was. viewtopic.php?f=4&t=2397

And reading that thread, Georges, I believe this is where you may have gotten the stickers too :)

Thanks, I wasn't able to find the link when I made my post. You search better than I do :)

By they way for the new members of the forum:

Adam doesn't visit the forum much anymore (if at all) and probably isn't offering these. You might try a PM I suppose, but please don't bump the thread asking him for these stickers.

I finally found the email that confirms that I bought mine from Fabio via Ebay on Feb 19th, 2007.

I think it's a 3x3 modification. Although I don't really understand which puzzle you're referring to? The 2x2 "anti-cube" is right next to a puzzle that appears to be a truncated 3x3 that looks similar to a Rubik's Snake.
