Following are some pictures for reference.

Hi! I’m John Lin, thanks for nice comments.
sorry for reply late,
I bought quite a few Meffert Jing’s Pyraminx to made some mods.
I’m happy that Skewb Curvy Rhombohedron has been mass produced with high quality.
here is some pictures I took around 2010.

Today my "Skewb Curvy Rhombohedron" arrived. Unfortunately, it was not packed very well and three centres were loose in the package at arrival: the screws were stripped out off their sockets. I guess that some pressure during transport had caused the problem.
It was not a big deal to glue the pieces together. On the other hand, this should not happen and I'll try to persuade the selling company to use better packaging in the future.

Otherwise, this puzzle is really nice. :) I can confirm that "high quality" - as John Lin has stated in his post above - is the appropriate term for it. The stickers are fine, very shiny very well place. The plastic is solid and you get a very nice "look and feel" impression.

I clearly recommend it to everybody who likes Jing's Pyraminx.
I like the clicking mechanism (some like it not so much, at least it is a bit less noisy than on the Jing's Pyraminx).
I consider solving it a bit harder than solving Jing's Pyraminx due to the confusing factor of a shape shifting puzzle.

Once again, I am a bit late to the party. :oops:

I recently got this puzzle from Cubezz.com. It was a great price, and along with the Evil Eye II that I ordered, came wrapped very securely in a box. It arrived in great shape, and I have thoroughly enjoyed playing with it. LanLan did an excellent job of manufacturing this puzzle.

Thank you John, for another fun puzzle in the Skewb family.

My Skewb Curvy Rhombohedron arrived from HKnowstore and had a similar issue to Konrads. My white triangle appears to have an incorrect screw in it compared to the others, it is shorter and thinner and doesnt stay in. Not something you would expect from a brand new puzzle but these things happen.

I got a replacement from hknowstore.
Once again a perfect customer service.
Thanks Calvin!
I hope they will not use simple bags for future shipments, this puzzle needs a card box :wink:
