Nice collection Ben! I would not call that mod a Floppy Case Cube though. That would be extended from the middle and out equally. yours is only extended out to one side. Maybe something along the lines of Bump Floppy Fisher Cube? ;)

I would say the only obvious one missing is the V-Cube 6x6. But otherwise great collection, and I like your Floppy Case Cube! You should try using Apoxie Scult to fill in the small gaps in between each cubie, you may find it looks more professional.

I decided against the V-Cube 6 because of the bad quality and my hate of parity.

About the floppy mod, I kinda forgot while I was using the epoxy sculpt and it would be too much work to go back and add it in now :)

Thanks,
Ben

Here are two suggestions:
- Professor Pyraminx (since you have big cubes and a Pyraminx already)
- Skewb Ultimate/Kite (either one, really)

The Teraminx is the most amazing puzzle in my collection. It's the first thing anyone sees when walking into my room and it generates a new respect for my hobby, especially when they look down on me because of puzzles. Tight tensions plus a quarter of a tube of Lubix and it's speedsolvable, so it's not like it'll sit in the back corner and never get used. Also fun to casually solve since you don't have to keep scrambling it. I mean, casual solving, speedsolving, adding to your collection, generating a new level of respect... what more can you ask for in a toy?

if you could only have as many puzzles as you have, you would have made the right choices. you could go for some more mods, or a void cube.

Ben

That deserve a new thread.
A video would be good too.
