Andreas has been paid and the puzzles will be shipped to me tomorrow. All of you in Europe, (there are 7 of you) will have your boxes sent next Tuesday since he couldn't get them all boxed up before he leaves town. He may get some out, but I won't know for sure until tomorrow. This way though all of us should receive the puzzles about the same time. If you haven't sent a payment yet, please do so a.s.a.p.

Thanks

Hi Dodd,

What is that Inside Out on the right in the photo? It looks like a medium size 2x2x2 cube.

Hi David,

(Answering for Dodd), I believe that it is a Vasdasz Cube (please correct my spelling if I'm wrong). It is similar to the Peter's Black Hole puzzle. It is a 2x2x2 structured cage with 7 moving cubical pieces that you can slide within the cage. The object of it is to match all the colors on one side~

~Joseph

I posted a seperate message on the Inside out (vadasz) 2x2x2 puzzle. It is available for trade. Joseph gave a good description.

That picuture is just what is coming to me There is another 23 puzzles that Andreas is sending to the UK & Germany for us.

Thanks to all of you who paid in full and sent my paypal account to record heights :D Now the order has been paid (except for shipping) and my paypal account is empty :( The big box to me was mailed today EMS. Andreas said it was the same price as regular airmail. I should be able to send out your cubes on Friday if the box comes before then. Otherwise, Monday and Tuesday I will be sending them out. European boxes will be shipped on next Tuesday. I will send final billing to you 7 in Europe on next Wednesday and would like your payments a.s.a.p since your cubes are in transit.

For all of you in North America. Once full payment is received, cubes will be shipped.

Sorry, I am all out of 3x3x3 cubes. I do have an extra 4x4x4. One is currently on ebay. If someone got an extra one and wants to sell, please let this person know.

Sorry Tim, by the time I saw your message, someone had already made me an offer. The other other 4x4x4 I have is currently listed on ebay. Shipping would be $3.75.

(I will be refunding 2 of you a few bucks for charging too much on the shipping :wink: )

No worries. After all the modding materials I've been buying up, my bank account is looking pretty anorexic right now anyway. :wink: So what's the difference between the studio cubes and the 25th anniversary ones?

Update. All North America puzzle orders have been mailed. Some of you have already received them. Andreas is back home and all European puzzles should be shipped today or tomorrow. I will let all of you know shipping totals as soon as I get them.

I have gotten a few requests for more puzzles. Maybe next year I will try and get some more. If someone is interested, remind me next year.

Update: All European boxes are packed and will be shipped Friday (tomorrow). I will then PM all of you with shipping totals.

I am glad everyone is happy so far. If anyone knows of any other puzzles that can be ordered in bulk, let me know. The dreamball order so far is the only one that I have tried and failed. Needed to order 1000. I have had a few requests for more Studio Cubes. Maybe in 6 months to a year we can get more.

Update: All remaining puzzles were sent out Friday. Thank you all for paying. There are still a couple of you who owe some money. Please pay your shipping balances so I can close the books (and messages :) ) on this experience. Enjoy the puzzles.

I got mine :D


Thanks again Dodd.

Wow are they ever stiff.

I didn't know what kind of silicone to get, so I went to the harware store and they lead me directly to the Jig-a-loo. ( http://www.jigaloo.com/english/welcome.htm )

Which ones? 3x3 or 4x4? If 3x3 you could try adjusting the screw tension, though sanding the spring ends or even replacing the springs completely with softer ones would probably have a better effect.

Which ones? If 4x4 I guess that's kinda expected since I think it's same as Rubik's 4x4 and we know how excellent their stickers are. If 3x3 then that's interesting since those have really good stickers. Would speak against Jig-a-loo. So, which one?

Final Update.

Everyone should have received their puzzles by now. If not, they should be there any day. I am glad all of you are pleased with your puzzles. I am happy too that I did not go in the hole on this project. Paypal fees came to $77.00 and the shipping of the 65 puzzles to me in the USA was $147.00 for a 20 pound box from Hungary. In all, I think I ended up with enough to get a free studio cube (before I sold a couple extra on ebay :wink: )

Enjoy the puzzles. If someone finds another puzzle that can only be sold in a bulk wholesale quantity, let me know.
