*EDIT*
EPIC BUMP! I am resuming the construction of master skewbs, so sorry for the long delay.

Sign up waiting list style!

there are two choices:

1: Complete assembled stickered and signed puzzle

2: DIY kit for cheaper!

I really like to see how your nice puzzles are being sold by waiting list style, not by auction.

Stable prices for the win. :)

Odd, I didn’t get an email notification like I normally would. Did anyone else get one? I wonder if my ISP’s email servers are acting up again…

there are different prices for the 2 options (not to mention color)...

The two options were different prices for me. $200 for the DIY, $400 for the fully assembled one.

not sure why you didn't get the email. this is legit, will start after I finish the DRD. Please don't sign up if you don't intend to have the money available once I build it.

no e-mail notification on my end either...

Drew, will this DIY come with assembly instructions? the Pro-Minx was pretty obvious, but the higher order puzzles get more confusing... Or is that part of the extra puzzle? :)

actually the higher order puzzles are as straight forward, since all the parts only fit on specific pieces, I think it should not be too confusing. I don't know how to make illustrations of how to assemble, and I can't exactly decribe by name alone. its just a matter of putting the centers on and then figuring it out form there
its not too hard

Assembling large/complex puzzles can be a puzzle in itself. Something I have fun with and look forward to. :)

I haven't received the e-mail notification either. I'm on the waiting list but I'm scared of the assembling part.
You have a big DRD waiting list. So, is it going to take couple of months to start Master Skewb production?

it could be a month, it could be next week, just don't sign up if you are not ready to pay please. I've had some major issues because of that on the pro-minx, and already on the DRD

Wow, for $200 it's definatley affordable! $400 is a bit steep for me, but $200 is alright!

I'd prefer no payments until the puzzles are ready to build. so if you do have the money, its best for me to recommend you putting that aside for the future payment please.

HOLY CRAP

a year later and I'm bumping this. I am giving heads up that my life has calmed down and I must resume making puzzles. for those who still are on my waiting list, I am now making puzzles!

I have 5 white master skewbs awaiting assembly, and I hope people will buy!

Yes I plan to hit up as much of the list as people will be willing to buy, in case they forgot!

I would really, really like to get this. So after I've done with buying a load of other puzzles, I'm going to have to start to save up. I hope I'll have one in my life time.

Speaking of Drew's old things, I'm sure the picture in his signature could use a serious update!

I'm pretty much at the end of that waiting list.
I have the money ready, though. If you have any difficulties collecting the money from those before me in the list, you can ship mine earlier.
Any idea how long it will take to build all 40 currently on the waiting list?

I hope this bump has nothing to do with the date of tomorow! :lol:

Fully assembled puzzles go first, of those orders White puzzles go first.

followed by DIY kits, White First.

I made some statistics on the existing waiting list:
fully assembled (=regular) 3 white, 16 black
DIY (=alternate) 21 white or black

Do you dare making any prediction when you will finish the fully assembled? (I'm pretty close to the end of those)
