I know I have nowhere near as many as most of you, but I'v only been collecting since around February, so I'm pretty happy with it for now. I can solve them all except for the square-2 which I just got in the mail and I have been too busy to mess with. I also threw in my giant 2x2 that I made out of paper just for fun.

What do you guys think I should go for next?

Nothing wrong with that collection!

I would try any of the crazy series:

crazy 3x3x3 earth
crazy 4x4x4 II

I personally find them by far the most entertaining.

I agree with rline regarding the Crazy series.
If you want an easier puzzle: Go for SmaZ's Dino Cylinder. It is pure artwork at the price of $16 shipping included.

Other recommendations:
- Helicopter Cube
- Dayan's Gem II

Nice collection, and I like the giant paper 2x2x2!

I would recommend:
-Skewb
-Helicopter Cube
-Face Turning Octahedron
-Vertex Turning Octahedron
-Rex Cube
-Skewb Diamond
-Skewb Ultimate

These provide a decent solving challenge, and look great too.

I would say that is a pretty good start since you only been collecting since February.

I think a gigaminx would look nice in there.

I have been collecting for 3 years now and still do not have a square 2.

Thank you for sharing.

You need a Skewb and Skewb Ultimate! They're unique puzzles and they're really fun to solve.

I actually share your stance on the bigger V-Cubes: I want the V-Cube 7 more than the V-Cube 6, because I like solving odd-numbered cubes more.

What you really need is a paper teraminx. :lol:
Ok but seriously what I think you should get:
1. Helicopter cube (I have it and it's pretty neat)
2. Mosaic cube
3. Pyraminx crystal

No, he needs a paper Petaminx! Anything is (cheaply) possible with papercraft.
