There is an update on Ayi's Toy about the 4x4x3 and Kite Cube. We may be getting the 4x4x3 soon :)

Yeah, been around for a few days now, The kite cube has already been removed from the announced but not released thread I believe, after I asked him what was happening on his kite cube video a while ago, he replied saying the mold had failed, and announced it here.

Are the cubies on this the same size as Ayi's other cuboids (standard 4x4x4 size) or are they larger (3x3x3 size)?

Edit: Ayi updated his post on facebook stating that the cubies are larger, they are 18mm.

I already have the 4x4x5 and the 5x5x4. These cubes afford different solving strategies. Does the 4x4x3 add any new challenges? I still hope for some higher order cuboids getting mass produced :-)

I expect it to solve the same as the 4x4x5, just with fewer layers. It's not going to add any new challenges to that puzzle I don't think.

Mine arrived last week and I've been playing with it non-stop!

Not very difficult but the quality and dedication put into its release are very evident and I'd just like to say congratulations to Ayi for making such a great puzzle and a big thank you for delaying its release until he was happy with it (although I did nearly go crazy waiting! :lol: ) it was most definitely worth it.

Also just in case it matters to anyone - I ordered from Cubezz.com and my puzzle arrived stickered (perfectly) whereas I think people that ordered it elsewhere had to sticker theirs.

I ordered 5 of them from HK Now Store and they arrived a couple of days ago. Mine did not have the stickers on them, which made me happy as I prefer to put the stickers on myself. Mine did have a lot of oil in them though, so much that on 2 of them it had seeped out to to the outer surface during shipping. I have had to clean all this mess up before doing anything else with them.

I want o second rline and Zzupler that this is a fine puzzle.
I got one from hknowstore and had to apply the stickers myself, which is OK for me, too.
It turns great, no unpleasant oil in mine.

EDIT: We don't have any pictures of it in this thread yet (Ayi has got nice photos of it on his website).
I want to show the nice quality of the stickers that came with it:

I really like the matte colours. The blue and green reminds on Cubesmith light colours.
Unfortunately, I somehow lost the Ayi signature sticker before stickering. :(
