This photo shows an Eastsheen 4x4x4 with my brand new Ball in a Cube puzzle and 5x5x5 Mini Ball.
Image

This photo shows my stickered (you all know I hate tiles) Pyraminx Crystal alongside my brand new Icosidodecaminx and a regular Pyraminx Crystal.
Image

This photo shows my Gigaminx V1 from a while back alongside my new V2. Both are based on Tyler's master pieces.
Image

This photo shows my 7x7x7 Barrel next to a 7x7x7 V-Cube.
Image

Click on the below photos for further information, photos and video. The bottom three were the only ones I had for sale. You may recognise the Hexaminx and 4x4x4 Ball (2008) which I have shown before. My Ball in a Cube was the only totally new puzzle for sale. People expecting my yearly emails will receive them shortly. In coming months some of those puzzles will be openly available either on this site or through eBay auction. I do not know yet if I will sell any of the others.

I was curious to see what would be done with a V-Cube. The 7x7 barrel looks incredible!

My bet: A scrambled 7x7 barrel(Though it probably is too late for a guess :mrgreen: )

My favourite was the Ball in a Cube either, is the internal block removed?

Those are all REALLY cool!!! If I had the funds to buy one I would probably get the Icosidodecaminx. It's such a beautiful piece :) As are all the rest.

If I take out the ball out of the ball in a cube puzzle, would it be a Void Revenge? :D

My 2 favorites were the barel 7x7 and the ball in the cube. The ball in the cube just looked like an overlaping cube variation, bit still amazing. It was also cool to see another v2 gigaminx out there.

great puzzles, especially the fact I got to touch and twist them this afternoon :P I really really love the hexaminx, to bad for the price... I also had a very inspiring talk with Tony himself. The funny thing about the 7x7 barrel is that he just started cutting it, and didn¬īt know where it would end up. really great puzzles.

I believe that you look closely you will actually find that that is actually a pattern and not scrambled.

Tony, great job on all of these puzzles, especially the 7x7x7 barrel. I can't understand how those pieces hang on when scrambled :shock: .

I love the ball in cube, and I don't understand how you can get such a perfect surface on the puzzle by hand. The sphere is so perfectly rounded, not a single misaligned surface. great work!

Why are the hidden interior edges on the ball in a cube stickered? That looks cool, but it seems like a pain to solve.

Because they are visible part way through a turn

It's actually made from a ES4, so all you are seeing is the internal pieces being modified.

More or less, it's the same as his Overlapping Cube with the non edge/corner pieces being rounded into a sphere.

Not to belittle you mods of course Tony.

ya but... aren't they 2 different mods? the 5x5 ball and the 4x4 cube are 2 different mods... so how did he put them together?

Oh and also, Tony, how did you make the 7x7 cylinder anyhow? Did you have to fill the pieces with epoxy first as a filler or did you just have to sand them down? I haven't got my hands on the v-cube 7 yet, so I don't know how thick the plastic is.

Hopefully this visualization can help.

These groups of pieces are the same when it comes down to it.

Oh, ok, I get it, so really it's no harder to solve than a normal 5x5, just way cooler looking. Well, congrats Tony, great puzzle.

Technically it is. There is some internal blocking due to the ES4s nature. You can't always move all the slices of the centers as seen in his demonstration videos.

300 Euros if I'm not mistaken. And good luck getting one, I think they were only being sold at Dutch Cube Day for now.

Wait, 300 euros? so like $500 maybe $550. Ouch, I think I'll go with just buying a 5x5 mini ball and building the ball inside a cube myself. Or I'll just wait till later... I can wait.

I don't think the Mini 5x5 ball will cost much less. ;)

Well, if I'm right, all you have to do to make a ball in cube is take a 5x5 mini ball, and pop in some normal 4x4 pieces. :?:

Yup, I know it, it's the 5x5 mini ball that's the hard part.

Well, if I'm right, all you have to do to make a ball in cube is take a 5x5 mini ball, and pop in some normal 4x4 pieces. :?:


You make it sound so easy :) I'm looking at it as if I were to build it, and I can foresee a lot of wasted time and materials. Getting that perfect sphere is quite a task.

That almost trivializes the puzzle. If it were that easy, I would make one :wink:

Having had a go with toothpicks and bendy plastic the other night, I still don't think building is an easy task. There is almost no way I could make a ball in a cube.
