I have an old 3x3 rubiks brand rubiks cube that I no longer use and I was wondering if anyone could give me any advice on which of the following i should mod it into:
* Fisher cube
* Octahedron barrel
* 3x3 ball
*Or a regular sticker based mod (e.g. turn it into something like a companion cube from portal or that puzzle box from hellraiser)
*Or i could do both the ball mod and the hellraiser sticker mod to create the ball version used in 'cabin in the woods'
Any thoughts/opinions?

I think the cutter cube is a nice mod.

Yes, do the one that appeals to you the most.

Thanks for the advice. I was wondering, would the modification into a fisher cube be okay? Obviously i don't intend to mass produce it since I don't have a lot of cash but i was just considering. Nice hearing from you and i genuinely love your puzzles and youtube videos.

I have decided to go for the octahedron barrel in the end.

Yeah it turned out great thanks for asking. I melted down the material that was cut off to fill in the gaps. All I need now is the stickers off cubesmith or I could just paint it.

You should see in a shop if you don't find adhesiv plastic sheets. I found good quality materials in my district and it's much cheaper than on cubesmith and much nicer than if you paint it !!! :D
