Hi all,

Today I received the super big 3x3x3 which was mentioned in another thread a few days ago.

This is a fully functional 3x3x3 cube. The length of a side of this cube is around 185mm, and the weight of which is around 1kg.

The manufacture's name is He Shu Toys, which is not a famous one, and it mainly manufactures cheap 3x3x3 cubes and other puzzles.

I decided to show this cube together with a mini 3x3x3 in order for you to see how big this cube is.

The words on the package mean "The largest 3x3x3 cube in the world".

This is how it looks like after scrambled.

Considering its size, I would say that the turning was quite smooth.

Here is a picture of its inside structure.

The mini 3x3x3 cube is not fully functional, and it can be turned in only one direction, as you can see in this picture.

Finally, here are two pictures of the big cube and small cube, and big snake and small snakes.

The mini snakes are in the same set with the mini 3x3x3 cube.

Here are two pictures with this big cube, a normal sized Dayan Zhanchi 3x3x3, and the mini 3x3x3.

The only picture where I get any sense for the size is when you're holding it. Can you post a few pictures with common everyday objects next to it?

Can you give us better pictures of the insides? The insides is where the debate came from on the old topic as to whether or not this cube was full functioning.

I was about to ask for the same thing. I think the size of one cubie, is around the size of a standard 3x3?

Yeah if you do the math, 18.5 cm to an edge means each cubie is 61mm to an edge and a Rubik's Cube is 57mm to an edge. So this is approximately the size of 27 Rubik's cubes packed together.

Can you do a picture where you put a standard cube on one corner of the large one, then a mini cube on the corresponding standard cube corner? It think it will look cool.

I too would like to see this next to a standard 3x3... I can't really sense the size of this, even thoug you've told us it is approximately the size of 27 3x3's packed together.

Thanks in advance.

That's a good idea, and posted pictures for this.
