Don't have any photos as of yet, but I got a number of nice puzzles over the holiday season. I got a nice care package from a special friend in Hong Kong with some really interesting puzzles in it, I got a black Jing's Pyraminx, a white flowerminx, a Qubami, and a Rubik's Touch Cube. I have to say, the touch cube is really stunning, especially when it just sits in the cradle and auto-scrambles, but I wouldn't have paid $150 for it. My brother got it for me and said he got it at a steal of a price compared to the original selling price.
It went on sale for about $50, I almost bought it when I saw that price.

Got my flexible hexagon this week!
The package is like an album cover. It's a sleeve with a printed front and back, and the puzzle slides in and out.


FYI, the original packaging was similar to the Rubik's Magic packaging - a box with a plastic window on the front, covered by a hinged lid. What you have there is only that lid. Still, it is an excellent find for an amazing price.

Here are some photos. As you can see, there is hardly any text on the rest of the box, so you're not missing out there.

However, I see you also have a small leaflet. I don't have that with mine. Could you please scan/photograph that and send it to me? (by private message or email) I've never really figured out what the solved pattern is supposed to be.

Jason, just like Jaap, I would also be very interested in that leaflet!

So it's just as Aleksey said, then! Japp and Pantazis, does your box top have an opening on the side that you could slide something into?

And yes, I will take some nice photos of the insert soon!

The box top consists of one folded piece of cardboard, and the left and right sides would have an opening if they hadn't been glued together. The glued sides can probably be fairly easily separated with a knife.

As seen from my solution page for the Flexible Hexagon,
mine is the same as Jaap's and Juan Roure's.

Yes, I AM! :shock: I had no idea how close I came to losing!

There's only one thing a crazy collector loves more than finding that one puzzle they've been looking for for years. And that's finding it at what they consider a sweet deal. :) This was my Christmas. Merry Christmas to me!

Rare? Not sure. Probably.

This was a "surprise me" deal. My only criteria was that it had my name on it. My pictures don't do it justice because the lighting is bad in the house at 9 pm.

The front side has a mirror on it.

Here are a few more, taken before I shipped it. Also not the best lighting.

On the last picture you can see how I doubled etched the mirror top so you can see light through the bottom. This will look better against a strong light source like the sun.

A couple of packages arrived recently for me.

On the left is a Clark's cube, and on the right is a blue Columbus Egg with the stand. And in the middle...

A set of four McDonald's put-together puzzles (Sundae, Fries, Big Mac, and Drink). I had never heard of these put-together puzzles before, so I guess they're rare to me, if to no one else. Tasty! :)

Got my yellow signed fisher egg today :D Was very cautious about the pen rubbing off, but I took it like a man and :scrambled: -> :solved: it. It's now out of reach of everyone else in my house and will never be touched again :lol:

Oops! I forgot to mention of Monday I got my signed Silver Golden Cube and Egg from Tony Fisher. Awesome puzzles, but Tony's signature is slowly fading away. I banned myself from playing with them and I'll get a cube and egg from Meffert's in the near future.

Unfortunately, Tony's signature has completely faded away on mine now :( If I ever manage to go to a TP meetup and he's there I'll be sure to ask for his signature on it though :)

It wouldn't have faded if you hadn't been playing with it.

Seriously, if you get a signed baseball, you don't go out and play baseball with it, do you?

And if you notice it starting to fade, why would you continue playing with it? Just a thought.

If you get a signed baseball, you don't need to use it for playing, because you can easily buy another one. With signed, custom puzzles this is different.
The builders use different techniques for their signature or sign. Some work better, some don't. I already made a couple of pics from signed stickers for comparison and will show them here (hopefully soon).

A yellow signed egg of course is a problem, because
(a) he could have bought another one to play with
(b) it has no stickers.

In general especially Tony is VERY serious about services for his puzzles.
If the signature shall be replaced, I suggest to contact him and send him the puzzle for renewing it.

I received this puzzle earlier this week, but haven't gotten around to getting any pictures of it until today, when we got a bit of a break in the rain. :)

This of course is a Master Dino made by Scott Bedard. It's a fantastic puzzle, and it looks really classy.



And a bonus picture, with the Master Dino with little brother, Smaz Dino, who happens to be the same size. :D

Been a long time since I post something on the forum. So I decided to share with all of you my latest package that arrived today.
I'm very excited :D :D

I've been collecting for a year and half now, but this was the single most expensive purchase I've made (around €200).
I know, for some of you it's not much, but for me, it's a lot... Anyway, hope you guys enjoy :wink:

Hey what's this?
I'm on Drew's waiting list on Scott's website waiting for a Master Skewb for quite a long time. And now I see, Scott has built a Master Skewb, but doesn't offer it on his own site. Strange world. But to be honest I don't expect anymore to get any of the puzzles I registered for there. Well, Scott, are you going to build more?

It's a lattice cube (master dino), not a master skewb.

Just because these two babies were delivered together, that doesn't make them twins!

One of the puzzles was obtained through a private deal with another collector/builder. The other puzzle was a gift, basically returning a favor.

My contact can't supply any more puzzles at this time, but I think Drewseph has some available. He recently announced details here. He's earned a reputation for excellent quality, so it's worth getting one of his!

ok so the master skewb came from you Drew?

The picture might trick me, but it looks like a correctly proportional master skewb?
Are you selling these too?

Also, I am surprised how many Compy cubes that are showing up! Its so nice to see that this puzzle became a reality
I would really like to have one of these babies!
As well as a Curvy Copter. :)

A couple of days ago I received (as part of an exchange) the following beautiful puzzles by Traiphum:
- Thai Domino: home-made and very rare of course + turns very smoothly
- 336: one of his great series of 33n puzzles
- Ultramorphix, made from a 555, very nice Reuleaux shape and extremely smooth in turning
- Square-2xp: an incredible design (a combination of a 222 and a Square-2 puzzle); very ingenious and also very smooth.

The Ultramorphix and especially the Square-2xp are very difficult to solve (at least for me).
All puzzles are of superb quality and show a fantastic craftsmanship.

Thank you, Traiphum!!

Oh, wow. I'm very envious of the 336 and the Ultramorphix. Beautiful!
