This is one of my first mods, so it's fairly simple. :wink:
It is basicly a 3x3x3 with LEGO 2x2 tiles.

And now you also have every single Bandaged cube possible as well.

I usually don't like these puzzles but I love this one a lot for some reason. Now you should make one with just the bottoms. Do the legos that only have one circle on them fit on the 5x5 or 6x6? :wink:

You'll ahve to try with the 6x6x6 yourslelf, but the one stud is too small on the eastsheen 5x5x5.
I'll try on the V-cube 7 when I get it.

Ahh. You remember it!
But I'm afraid you are mistaken. I am sure that ths distances between the 2x2-plates don't allow a plate or block of arbitrary dimension to be placed between them.

Knowing just LEGOs in general, you won't be able to bandage it just using LEGO plates. A 4x2 plate wouldn't reach both 2x2 plates because of the distance between the cubies.

Look's great for a first mod, but your color scheme is a bit off.

cool mod, can you bandage it by adding additional legos?

Also, color schemes are not set in stone. One of the joys of puzzle building is the ability to be as creative as you like, there is no reason to use the standard color scheme if you like another one better.

I guess you're right. It doesn't matter, it is just one of my pet peeves.

I ,as well, am not usually a fan of this type of mod but I really, really like this one. Nice work. If I have enough extra pieces of lego left over I might make on of these for my little boy. Great job Gurragu.

Thank you everyone, I am thinking of making more and putting them on eBay, So do you think they would sell? Should I make white ones?
Again, thank you for your positive comments and Happy modding :D

You could put them on ebay but I don't think many people are willing to pay a lot for a couple of $5 legos glued using $2 super glue to a $10 rubik's cube. They would certainly sell, but I don't think they will pay for your labor.
