Got my heli twins (white and black) in the mail today.

Also, my 2 master skewbs from Amazon. I am awaiting another from the Lighttake Deal.

Also, not really a puzzle, but I wanted to post something and this seemed like the best place.

I got all my casting supplies today!!! :D

-3 quarts smoothcast 300
-2 quarts OOMOO 30
-2 small spray bottles of mold release
-2 small brush bottles of sealing agent
-I have legos, milliput, knives, cups, gloves, tools etc. at home already.

And my first 2 molds are curing as a type this: A dice and a US quarter.
I hope they turn out, I really want to get into casting so I can make some seriously cool puzzles :D

Today was a good day for me :D

These are the cubes I bought in the last 2 weeks.

I bought the Skewb Ultimate, Holey Skewb, Gear and Gear Extreme from Meffert's, and they arrived here in about 4 days :D
Instead I just received today the Latch Cube, that I bought from Georges and that arrived after quite 2 weeks :? (it's really strange how the postal service works here...)
Finally, I bought the 2x2 in the only store which sells puzzles that I found here in Milan

I already solved or learnt to solve all of 'em, a part for the Latch Cube that arrived only few hours ago.

I'm still waiting for the Bandaged Cube that I bought from HDVAO, but it should arrive during this week...



EDIT: I tried to solve the Latch Cube :shock:
It's the hardest puzzle I've ever seen, It's incredibly hard even to assemble a single layer!...

Look what I found! :shock:

Thanks to the WONDERFUL seller. I finally met a tp.com member in person!

These may be rare but oh well.

And they are even sealed! Never opened! Love them, can't get enough of them. I still want a white one though.

My master skewb arrived today from the lighttake wholesale deal!

It shipped in a shapeways box from Eric Vergo, and I forgot that I had ordered it, and I freaked out! :lol:

I thought that he had shipped me a pentagram or some other amazing shapeways prototype puzzle for free, for testing or something! My mind does not work well when I get excited...

You can imagine my disappointment when all that I found was a master skewb. But it is a great puzzle, and the deal worked out quite nicely. I now have 3 master skewbs, which will be made into **SECRET CLASSIFIED PUZZLE** shortly.

Thanks again Eric and Luke for saving me some dough!

Can you tell me how the LanLan Master Skewb is? Cuz' I heard that it's a little stiff and it's easy to broke...

Just another question: all the mass-produced Master Skewb are made by LanLan? Or are there any other of other brands?

It actually isn't too bad. It has a slight audible click, but it's a click that's very hard to actually feel. It's a puzzle that I would recommend.

It does, however, turn a little stiff until you break it in.

Don't lubricate it, as the stickers will peel back and fall off. That's from experience :?

Received a package today with some basic puzzles

Jings Pyraminx
Pyraminx
Semi Super Square-1
3x3x2 Cube
3x3x2 Crazy Cube
4x3x3 Cube

Now still waiting for another package. From the same seller actually. Both packages were shipped at same time, but apparently one got here earlier somehow.

Hi All

Got 2 packages yesterday.
My cute jade cube & jade pyraminx in the 1st one
An alexander's star in the 2nd. Unfortunately, some parts of the alexander's star are broken (I almost knew it before I bought it, but it was quite inexpensive so.....)
Anyway, does anyone know if I have a chance to find some extra pieces (the small pieces that go between the core....)
Thank you!

I finally received today, after quite a month of wait, the Bandaged Cube built by HDVAO.
Here's a little review:

It came in a white personalized box with a serial number, and HDVAO logo.
The cube is really well done. It's a little bigger than a normal 3x3, but it's lighter than a regular cube. It also is incredibly smooth, and I wouldn't say it's a handmade cube for how it's smooth and for how well it is sanded :D, it seems quite a mass-produced puzzle.
It's quite hard to scramble, and I guess it will be even harder to solve :D

Got my helicopter cube today, faster then I expected.
I ordered a black one, got a white one instead. But that's fine, it's a cool puzzle.

That was me that first mentioned it!! :lol:

Since you bought from that site, I guess you can tell me: is $34.99 the sale price or not? (I'm desperate to know!!!!!! :D )

i'm assuming that's a yes... :?

So without the sale price, it'd cost almost $140?!

and the master pyramorphix would be $60, that seems kinda expensive for the master pyramorphix

I thought it was the regular price and the sale only applied to Rubik's brand. Perhaps this is just my incorrect interpretation though.

I think they mean that the price is 75% of what it used to be, so 25$ off. A keychain cube should never cost more than $10!!!

That is a fair price and pretty much what everyone paid for them (when you factor in shipping).

I wish they had black ones, I'd buy a few extra.

I'm sure it's your incorrect interpretation. Rubik's doesn't sell the Rex Cube or Helicopter Cube, but the site says that they are also on sale.

So it can't be the brand...

Ah, that was you :D
Indeed the total price, including shipping, was 34.99 dollar
The seller responded quickly to email and he shipped it fast too.

My white Tuttminx arrived today. A beautiful puzzle, although it's not really a challenge, it's just like a Megaminx (no, I didn't jumble it. To be honest for me I don't think there would have been significant challenge difference between jumbling it and not jumbling it). It's a very nice puzzle! :)

Today my professor pyraminx finally arrived. I ordered it just before they updated the website with the out of stock message, but still I was just too late to get one from that first production run.
Excellent turning, nice puzzle!

I got my 3x3x3 and 4x4x4 cubesmith stickers in the mail today, but no cubes yet! The stickers looked small to me at first but I'm sure that's just because of the gaps between the stickers.

I got a USA masterball today.
I am very happy with the turning except when it locks up :?

Just recieved my Tuttminx, Gem I, and Gem II. Not quite sure if you would consider Tuttminx is 'rare' and therefore I posted it in here. I consider rare puzzles to be puzzles like the Dogic, Golden Cube, etc.

Got a Megaminx today!

A while ago I asked on this forum which would be the best Megaminx to buy. The main answers I got were either Meffert's or MF8.

I chose to go with MF8 because it came in white plastic, with stickers instead of tiles, and it was cheaper.

The pieces catch a little and it's a bit stiff, but I'm sure it will loosen up once I break it in.

I also got a helicopter cube which you can see in the "Packages just arrived with rare puzzles" thread.

Received the two white bodies cubes on the right by mistake! Black bodied cubes were ordered but i got white delivered, emails have been sent.

This lot should keep me out of trouble for a while :D

Edit: Wow! Calvin from hknowstore has responded to my email about the wrong colour cube being sent within 1 hour. He will send out a black one free and i can keep the white one! Excellent customer service! Thank you Calvin :D

I got a Pyraminx, Skewb and Skewb Ultimate all at once. I also have a KO floppy cube I ordered from Hong Kong... at least 2 months ago. It still hasn't arrived :cry:

It was only $2 with shipping though, so it doesn't matter that much.

And the reason you posted you are buying KO cubes is????

Come on, I know you are new, but I am sure to get the account you had to read the posts. A bit of common sense goes a long long way. in this instance-you are at a dead standstill. Think before you post-oh, and go back and read some of the past posts.

Today I got a Windmill cube from HKnowstore, a 2x2x3 from Tribox and a Dino-Dodecahedron and Darth Maul 2x2s from sellers on eBay. I could be out at parties, or dating, or hunting moose or whatever normal teenagers do on a Friday night, but no. I have PUZZLES!
