I received my White Golden Cube today.
So in the last week, I've gained 3 puzzles that I've dreamt of having for a while, White Golden Cube, White Golden Egg, and a Gold Golden Egg.

I got what I believe is a really good deal on the Golden Cube. Also I spoke with Ben a while ago, and he said that the White Golden Cube was made in a very small scale, does this make them more rare, and maybe more valuable?

The only puzzle now is a Dogic :)

Thanks Robert

Indeed. According to Meffert's news (Mar. 6, 2009), the run of Tony Fisher's White Golden Cube was limited to 200 puzzles. I know that at least one or two has been transformed into mods (IIRC one was turned into a Hexagonal Dipyramid).

Puzzle News as of March 06. 2009 - Tony Fischers Golden cube in white body is now available!!!

No, it isn't. This one is from Mike, smaller than Oskar's.

Two more Goldens came in today! I am going to assume that they are now rare. Enjoy!

Got these babies for $60 USD (For Both!)


Thanks!

Happy day for me, my first custom icosahedron :)
Image
Image
Next to some friends. I meant this picture to be a size comparison, but with the Master Tutt's Icosahedron in back it actually looks a bit smaller when it is really just a bit larger. Oh well. Good picture, terrible size comparison.

Enjoy (I will!)

Dave

Oopsie, a double post, hope you guys don't mind, but I had to show this piece of art to everyone. My pictures don't do it justice. It is the most beautiful thing and it makes me happy. :D

I can't seem to solve it, so ignore the scrambledness of the pictures :scrambled:

I was hoping to take some really nice pictures outside, but it is kind of dull and grey out, I will make a video eventually.

I saw this thread last week, and then when searching for puzzle deals later that day, I came across the calender puzzle on my national auction site for Buy-Now $4! It arrived today, so here are some pictures:

Yay! Today two rare puzzles arrived in two separate packages! An original Cuboctahedron which I won on eBay for £3.25! (about 5 USD). I also received my six colour Alexander's Star, also from eBay.

Well, according to the Prices page on this site, they average around $43, although I wouldn't say that's too accurate, seeing as the prices varied from $3 to $155. :P

A Master Pentultimate from Eric Vergo arrived today. It turns really smoothly and feels & looks great!
Comparison with TomZ's Pentultimate shown.
I also received (ok, a while ago) an Elite Tetrahedron from Chris Hemerich. Also a fantastic puzzle!
The Elite Tet is the Halpern-Meier companion to Timur's Professor Pyraminx from Meffert - another comparison shot shown.

Two dodecahedrons arrived this week.

Thanks to Eric Vergo (Pentagram) and MF8 (Dino Dodecahedron). The Pentagram looks and turns perfect. Dino Dodeca is a little bit too tight for solving.

Yesterday I received a very special puzzle... a Curvy Copter II from Tom!

After playing with it, scrambling it, solving it, coming up with more algorithms for it, playing with it some more, accidently jumbling it, getting scared, disassembling it, reassembling it, and then more playing with it I have to say it's an awesome puzzle. I would very much like to thank Tom as well, as this is the last Curvy Copter II ever planned to be made! :)

(Pictures tomorrow.)

Today, I've got my birthday parcel
Image
The experienced eye will catch the single really rare item.
Right, it is Timur's Master FTO.
Chances are, that it is still unique in the universe :) Is that rare enough?
Mike's Mini Mixup Cube may be not so rare, but it is very nice. (It is not really hard to solve, if you are familiar with some 3x3x3 Supercube algorithms.)
The two V-Cube 2x2x2 are not rare at all, but I can compare them with other 2x2x2 variants now.
The Crazy 3x3x5 may be not rare, but its shapeshifting looks quite confusing to me.

BTW, I'm probably the oldest member here, or is there anyone who wants to challenge my 65 years? :)

EDIT: The Crazy 3x3x5 has been confusing at the very first glance, only. It is not harder to solve than an ordinary 3x3x6. The circle does not add any difficulties.

EDIT2: The official name of the Circle 3x3x5 is Witeden's Super 3x3x5. I have used the term "Crazy" because it refers to circle puzzles very often. The puzzle behaves quite differently from other "Crazy" puzzles, though.
I hope I have not confused anybody.

AT LAST!!

Some cubers may not consider this cube a "rare" puzzle, but I think it is rare enough to post here.

I also got a Megaminx, which you can see in the "Packages with less rare puzzles" forum.

Yesterday I received an original Octagon Barrel from eBay. I'm not sure how 'rare' it is, but seeing as this version isn't mass produced anymore I would consider it rare.

Even though my Master Tutt's Icosaminx arrived more than a month ago, it is looking so adorable sitting next to my Tuttminx that I figured I would share some pictures. :) The turning quality of this version (V2) is great, just as Claus mentioned in this post. Thank you so much Matthew (and Leslie)!

Package 3: Impossiball + Super Square-1 Column (thanks Zzupler! :D)
Package 4: Original Meffert's Pyraminx

And yesterday I received another package containing two Clocks and another Rubik's Barrel.

Oh God, I am feeling old tonight. I bought all of these "original" puzzles the first time they were released :( Well, at least I paid less than you for them :)

Last week I had a lucky day - 4 long-waited puzzles arrived all on the same day. These are all excellent puzzles!

I really don't know are they rare or not, but still some of them are signed, so they are unique in this way.

These are the puzzles of last month:
(Sorry for the bad quality images, my wife take my camera...)

Thanks SMAZ for the signed puzzles. It wasn't a problem, that they arrived without stickers. ;)

I need to break in the SW micro puzzles, and only sticker them after it.

Yesterday a big parcel with 5 puzzles from TomZ has arrived.
Image
No, this is not rare any longer :lol: It is a free gift.

The other four are rather in the rare league. And one of them is extremely rare :) :
Image
Sorry, but number four ist yet to be released and you have to wait for Tom, when he has recovered from IPP31 and his vacation :lol:
Tom has shipped them after IPP and he had them with him there. Maybe, some of you have even played with my puzzles there. Tom had proposed it this way and so I have got puzzles that are broken in, very well. :)

My family of TomZ puzzles is growing:
Image
I'm VERY happy with the old and new members of that family, and especially with hidden number four above :D

Have you seen this mezon Dino 3x3x3 pattern:

Image
Seems impossible at the first glance, right? :)
All invisible pieces are solved!!!

Wow, that's like 3k $ of Tom puzzles :lol:

Isn't that dino Mezon makeable with the 3x3?! or it is the only switched corner ?

Aaah, I should have mentioned: All invisible pieces are correct.
