I saw this on Facebook this morning. I love The Big Bang Theory, so this would fit nicely in my collection. I wish they had done something more interesting with the stickers, though. Maybe like the sudoku cubes, where you'd need to get specific arrangements of the 5 symbols on each face.

My God, $24.95 for a puzzle mod! Wait, a Good Quality Cube + Photoshop + Oliver = Bazinga! Cheaper and better quality.

Just wondering what everybody has their eye on in the season of giving (and receiving :lol:) this year. I thought about posting this to General Puzzles, but I'd also like to hear about what non-twisting gifts you're all considering!

I was also thinking about making a holiday gifts thread come the actual holidays so we can all share what we've gotten, if anybody else thinks this is a good idea?

My Christmas list consists almost entirely of puzzles this year. However, I'm only putting puzzles that I probably would not purchase on my own due to my limited funds. The Gear Octahedron and Dayan Gem IV are the exceptions - I've held out on them so long I'm getting impatient! Anyways, here's my list:

Bermudaminx
Camouflage 4x4x2
Camouflage 3x3x3
Dayan Gem IV
Gear Octahedron
Gear Pyraminx
Geranium
Hexaminx
i-Cube
Mixup Plus 4x4x4
Super X-Cube + Super 3x3x5 + "extreme" parts from Grigr's Shapeways shop
Time Machine
Wheel of Wisdom

Sadly, though, I doubt I will get anything off this list. My friends and family are scared of purchasing things from China. I'll probably just get socks like I did last year! :lol: :lol:

My family is the same way about purchasing from Chinese companies. A lot of those puzzles are on Amazon, though, which is where my family will be buying any puzzles on my list :)

I'm only asking for 5 mass-produced puzzles. Any guesses as to why? :wink:

Mine too, that's why I buy my own choice of puzzles and put a price sticker on each one. Then, my puzzle givers choose the puzzle(s) up to their price and give the money to my wife. I get exactly what I want and my wife gets all of my money :lol: Win-win :lol: :lol:

Nothing really because I just buy what I want when I want it.

World peace and an end to all pain and suffering. And/or maybe the odd puzzle. :)

Any traiphum puzzle, any Oskar puzzle, and any Tony Fisher puzzle. That would make my year. Also, platinum cube, pentultimate, master curvy copter plus, or any absurdly challenging puzzle that isn't mass-produced. Actually, I'm saving up for an Elite Skewb, a Crazy 2F/B4 Extension Kit, and a Bubbloid 122, but I want to earn those. However, all I'm getting is some of the puzzles on my HKNowStore wish list. :( But, I know I'm getting a Wheel of Wisdom, so that cheers me up! :D

Wheel of Wisdom, Oskar's Jumble Diamond, and possibly a Rotoprism 2.

More specifically, my own. I've realized that my collection will never really be able to grow in size until I stop designing puzzles, which probably won't happen any time soon. :lol:

I think he means the international type of customs, but you are right, if I was designing amazing puzzles all of the time, I would have no money left to buy mass-produced puzzles because of the high cost of 3-D printing.

My own list is just basically every puzzle on Amazon, so that my family can just pick from the list and make it a surprise! I'm also hoping to have some cash to buy myself the Game of Thrones books and the new Zelda game
