Hi folks,

For the past year I have been working on building ABS parts to make fully functional 3x2x2 rectangular prism puzzles. Well I finally have the necessary parts to build a quantity of 3x2x2 and 3x3x2 puzzles. The 3x2x2 measures 66x66x99mm and the 3x3x2 is 66x99x99mm. The parts are all double checked with calipers to make sure they are the correct size.

I am offering the 3x2x2's first on ebay for $65 plus shipping, but I have a special offer to kick things off for Twisty members. For the first 15 orders I will offer Twisty members the new deluxe 3x2x2 puzzles for $50 including shipping world-wide. The 1mm thick tiles greatly add to the strength of the puzzle and this new design is a big improvement to my earlier designs. If you are interested email me at mark@cubeman.org .

Heh, my "Fraken Tower" doesn't feel quite so beastly in the face of that thing.

The offer of the 3x2x2 including air mail shipping world-wide for $50 U.S. dollars is still available.

I'll sell both the 3x2x2 and 3x3x2 including air mail shipping within the U.S. or Canada for $120 U.S., but it's $135 for international shipping. Unfortunately when the weight goes over 500 grams the price of air mail shipping doubles.

The colours are standard cube colours, white, blue, green, red, orange and yellow. In the future I will be offering more colours.
You can see a video of the 3x3x2 on this page: http://cubeman.org/cubesell.html

Payment is by ikobo.com or paypal.com to mark@cubeman.org .

Mark

Thanks!

I went for the 3x2x2, although the 3x3x2 looks quite big and impressive!
Will think about getting the other puzzle in the future! :)

My eye must be going because I'm noticing white dots on puzzles in the picture above and it also looks like to me a 4x4x6 cube with bigs stickers on the puzzle anyway. Is my eye going? I'm sorry if I offended you. I didn't mean to :oops: .

Is this offer still valid and for how long?? I love to have one also. Just curious on how long the offer is because you didn't say above and also how many made for the twistypuzzles communnity.

Hi Darren,

Those white dots are caused by the flash of my camera reflecting off some parts of the ABS plastic.

Not at all. I'm not using stickers, those are 1 mm thick polystyrene squares. I'm still making some improvements to the puzzle and it looks somewhat better in person.

Most of the 3x2x2's and the 3x3x2's were sold to twisty members. Originally I only had enough coloured plastic to make about 15 puzzles. Normally a plastics manufacturer will want to sell a minimum run of 140 sheets for each colour which are about 4 feet by 8 feet in size! Fortunately we managed to come up with a compromise solution on a smaller amount of plastic.

It turned out to be fairly expensive to make the ABS pieces. I have enough materials to make about 30 more puzzles. When I run out of parts I'll announce it here.

Mark

Received it on the mail today just three hours before my flight... talk about timing! :P

Wish you all a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! :D
(and if you notice someone twisting this HUGE puzzle inflight, it can't be any other than me LOL)
