I won a popeye 2x2x2 cube.

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... %3AIT&rd=1

it is very big about 2 inches. also there are screws holding it together as seen in this picture. does anyone know the differance in mechanism with this cube and a regular rubik's 2x2x2 and an Eastsheen 2x2x2.
Also Sandy do you want pictures of the box?

Just as a matter of interest I have three versions of the Popeye Cube - as described below.

Version 1

56mm edge length. Vinyl stickers. Orange stickers (Wimpy) are fluorescent, as on original Rubik Cubes.
Text in yellow 'flash' on front face reads BY BUD SAGENDORF
Along the top edge of the two top white stickers on the front face the text KING FEATURES SYNDICATE USA appears.

Version 2

All as version 1 except 50mm edge length and no text to top edge of white stickers on front face. Otherwise everything else is exactly the same, same stickers, pictures etc.

Version 3

56mm edge length. Laminated paper stickers. Orange stickers (Wimpy) are also just standard laminated paper. The pictures on the stickers are similar to the other versions but are poor quality printing.
Text in yellow 'flash' on front face reads BY RID SAGNDORF
No ref obviously to King Features Syndicate USA.

This may be of interest to some.

Anthony
