This weekend I bought Russian Flower (mint condition) on flea market
for 10 rubles only (~0.3 dollars). I like it!

I don't know if it's better to post this here or in the "less rare puzzles" thread, but since my new Golden Cube is signed by both Tony Fisher and Uwe Meffert, I imagine it's no more an ordinary Golden Cube :D
Anyway, here are the pictures:

Unboxing
Unstickered
Stickered
Solved
Scrambled

I decided to put the stickers all around the signatures, since I prefer the gold to the simple black color...

A neat little package came for me today, and made me my week!
I am now the proud owner of a Betcha Can't/Flexible Hexagon (with instructions), a tiled Skewb, older tiled Meffert's 4x4x4 and 5x5x5s (with stripes across tiles), older Meffert's 6-color Megaminx, and a couple put-together puzzles!

All images clickable!

They all are now sitting wonderfully in my collection 8-)

Hello,

I want to share with all of you the package that arrived yesterday, with the LAST 5 new Helicoter Cubes available in stores on January! They were bought on Mf8, right before they announce that last one for $10.000.

Have fun!
Fabio

Hello Forum,

I just received this signed master skewb in the mail today! I like it MUCH more than the lanlan mass produced master skewb because it is proportional! I also like that it is slightly pillowed.

Thanks Timur,

Chris

I received my Mefferts White Golden Egg and Golden Egg in the mail today.
Very happy with my trade that I did on youtube, instead of this forum.

I original asked for the white and yellow eggs from this user, but as they took long to ship the package, they kindly changed the yellow for the golden one without me even asking.
Now waiting on the shipment of my White Golden Cube.

Robert

PS is it me or do they remind anyone else of the eggs from Harry Potter?

I received my White Golden Cube today.
So in the last week, I've gained 3 puzzles that I've dreamt of having for a while, White Golden Cube, White Golden Egg, and a Gold Golden Egg.

I got what I believe is a really good deal on the Golden Cube. Also I spoke with Ben a while ago, and he said that the White Golden Cube was made in a very small scale, does this make them more rare, and maybe more valuable?

The only puzzle now is a Dogic :)

Thanks Robert

Indeed. According to Meffert's news (Mar. 6, 2009), the run of Tony Fisher's White Golden Cube was limited to 200 puzzles. I know that at least one or two has been transformed into mods (IIRC one was turned into a Hexagonal Dipyramid).

Quote:
Puzzle News as of March 06. 2009 - Tony Fischers Golden cube in white body is now available!!!


Hi all!

A very limited special production run of the Tony Fischer Golden cube in white body (only 200 pieces) is now available. This very special edition will not be reproduced and orders will be processed on a first come first served basis whilst stocks last, to secure your own copy of this beautiful puzzle please go direct to: http://www.mefferts.com/products/detail ... =13&id=240

Happy Puzzling

No, it isn't. This one is from Mike, smaller than Oskar's.

Two more Goldens came in today! I am going to assume that they are now rare. Enjoy!

Got these babies for $60 USD (For Both!)


Thanks!

Happy day for me, my first custom icosahedron :)
Image
Image
Next to some friends. I meant this picture to be a size comparison, but with the Master Tutt's Icosahedron in back it actually looks a bit smaller when it is really just a bit larger. Oh well. Good picture, terrible size comparison.

Enjoy (I will!)

Dave

Oopsie, a double post, hope you guys don't mind, but I had to show this piece of art to everyone. My pictures don't do it justice. It is the most beautiful thing and it makes me happy. :D

I can't seem to solve it, so ignore the scrambledness of the pictures :scrambled:

I was hoping to take some really nice pictures outside, but it is kind of dull and grey out, I will make a video eventually.

I saw this thread last week, and then when searching for puzzle deals later that day, I came across the calender puzzle on my national auction site for Buy-Now $4! It arrived today, so here are some pictures:

Yay! Today two rare puzzles arrived in two separate packages! An original Cuboctahedron which I won on eBay for £3.25! (about 5 USD). I also received my six colour Alexander's Star, also from eBay.

Well, according to the Prices page on this site, they average around $43, although I wouldn't say that's too accurate, seeing as the prices varied from $3 to $155. :P

A Master Pentultimate from Eric Vergo arrived today. It turns really smoothly and feels & looks great!
Comparison with TomZ's Pentultimate shown.
I also received (ok, a while ago) an Elite Tetrahedron from Chris Hemerich. Also a fantastic puzzle!
The Elite Tet is the Halpern-Meier companion to Timur's Professor Pyraminx from Meffert - another comparison shot shown.

Two dodecahedrons arrived this week.

Thanks to Eric Vergo (Pentagram) and MF8 (Dino Dodecahedron). The Pentagram looks and turns perfect. Dino Dodeca is a little bit too tight for solving.

Yesterday I received a very special puzzle... a Curvy Copter II from Tom!

After playing with it, scrambling it, solving it, coming up with more algorithms for it, playing with it some more, accidently jumbling it, getting scared, disassembling it, reassembling it, and then more playing with it I have to say it's an awesome puzzle. I would very much like to thank Tom as well, as this is the last Curvy Copter II ever planned to be made! :)

(Pictures tomorrow.)

Today, I've got my birthday parcel

The experienced eye will catch the single really rare item.
Right, it is Timur's Master FTO.
Chances are, that it is still unique in the universe :) Is that rare enough?
Mike's Mini Mixup Cube may be not so rare, but it is very nice. (It is not really hard to solve, if you are familiar with some 3x3x3 Supercube algorithms.)
The two V-Cube 2x2x2 are not rare at all, but I can compare them with other 2x2x2 variants now.
The Crazy 3x3x5 may be not rare, but its shapeshifting looks quite confusing to me.

BTW, I'm probably the oldest member here, or is there anyone who wants to challenge my 65 years? :)

EDIT: The Crazy 3x3x5 has been confusing at the very first glance, only. It is not harder to solve than an ordinary 3x3x6. The circle does not add any difficulties.

EDIT2: The official name of the Circle 3x3x5 is Witeden's Super 3x3x5. I have used the term "Crazy" because it refers to circle puzzles very often. The puzzle behaves quite differently from other "Crazy" puzzles, though.
I hope I have not confused anybody.

Thanks Tom for the congratulations and thanks for your promise regarding that present :) I'm looking forward to posting in this thread again :)
My avatar shows my older granddaughter. (We have two of them.) When I had got my first Rubik's Cube, I had been a bit older than her on the photo (33) :lol:

AT LAST!!

Some cubers may not consider this cube a "rare" puzzle, but I think it is rare enough to post here.

I also got a Megaminx, which you can see in the "Packages with less rare puzzles" forum.

Yesterday I received an original Octagon Barrel from eBay. I'm not sure how 'rare' it is, but seeing as this version isn't mass produced anymore I would consider it rare.

New item in my collection. Is this labyrinth rare or not? I have not seen it before.

Even though my Master Tutt's Icosaminx arrived more than a month ago, it is looking so adorable sitting next to my Tuttminx that I figured I would share some pictures. :) The turning quality of this version (V2) is great, just as Claus mentioned in this post. Thank you so much Matthew (and Leslie)!
