Looks like the Void Cube knock-offs hit ebay and they are called "Vido Cubes".

It's selling for the only a couple of dollars less than the Void Cube :shock:

If anyone has bought it already, let us know how it is! It looks pretty good judging from the ebay pictures. (it's in white too!) Thanks a lot for showing this to us LewAshby

I've seen them on ebay now in both black and white, sometimes called "void cube" and sometimes called "vido cube" which may just be a typo. They are all from the same seller. He even claimes that they are by Gentosha in some of them. I wonder if Katsuhiko and/or Gentosha could have ebay pull these. I thought that ebay has a method for doing so.

These haven't been shown in any packaging so for now it seems that the only way to be sure you get an official one is to get one that is shown in the official packaging.

hehe I'll also call them "AVoid Cubes" and just go for the real deal.

Really it is a shame but everyone has their own measures of morality so I guess those puzzles will still be bought and sold.

I won't buy one. I am a very "brand loyal" person.
