Hi,
lately I searched the online collection of our inactive member "Mr. Twisty"
While doing so I found six images to small to be used for the museum.
Can anybody help me with big enough (640*480 ++) images without copyright?

EDIT: Deleted the sixth point because Goetz helped me there.
EDIT2: Deleted the fifth point because Pantazis helped me there.

Hi Andreas,

The last one looks like a color variant of my Triple Disky.

Please look into your e-mail inbox for some pictures of it. :)

I have some photos of the Chocolate Roundy that I found at a swap-meet/flea-market
back in... 1995! Sadly, one piece was missing, but it seems that the missing piece
enabled the creation of a... moving hole type of puzzle! (just like the impossiball
becomes some sort of a... Brain Racker!).

Regarding photos, my main collection is still away from me, so I cannot take more (those
are the ones I had in my PC for many years), so I hope those photos can be of some use.

They are not perfect but they are of use.
Thank you.

Andreas, I do have photos of the 2x2x2 Dog too, but I would need some time to prepare them.
Actually, many people should have this already, as it was very popular around 6-7 years ago.

And another valuable post of Pantazis.
I have to break into your HDD ...
so many treasures seems to be hidden there.

Do you have some more detail about this dog?
Year? Producer?
Does the dog resemble a "real" comic character?

Well, both Chinese Dogs appeared in 2007. They also had sounds.
Pressing down the left ear would cause it to bark, while pressing down
the other one would make it scream (in really bad audio quality)
"Gong Xi Fa Cai" (Happy New Year).

I must had ordered about 10-15 of them to give as presents to many
friends of mine. Its turning was acceptable, but it was very easy to cause
damage because it was thin in certain parts. I am not sure if they resemble
any characters, but I wouldn't be surprised if they did!

Hope that helps.

:)

I believe they are Aome Huskies, I have tried to acquire them in the past.
I remember this thread about them here -

Thank you two.
Although images are the main part gathering information consumes a lot of time too.
