Ok guys, I have the Moderators permission to post these. The first pictures are the new hearts from Yong Jin.

This is a set of mini D-ball key chains that Dr. Panda found. I went back tonight and bought them. Again, there is a cube for size comparison.

A "new" one I found tonight. Yes, it's a copy. Beware when bidding on these on ebay. the originals have Rubik's in a rose compass on them, the copy doesn't. If you don't see it, ask for a photo of the other side before bidding.

A qj megaminx. It is heavier than the others, but no weight on it just yet. The colors are hard to tell apart. The dark blue is too close to the blue, there are two reds that are even hard for me to tell apart. It turns hard, and it has that awful lubricant already in place. (although some of this might be because of my hand)

Last one, my flight attendant friend brought me a puzzle from Japan. Not a new Disney one, but very recognizable for what it is:

I just love it when he comes into town. I give him Disney pins he isn't here to collect, and he gives me puzzles. A nice trade if you ask me! Oh wait, I'm supposed to add that he's a great friend and I just love seeing him too :lol:

Great! The puzzles from Yong Jun are actually some easy part-changing mids. The first one is a windmill mixed with a fisher cube, the second one is a 3x3x3 mixed with a fisher cube.

Crap, so this is the equivalent of my manufacturing prototype. It's going to be much harder to sell that if I ever decide to.

Hello Roxanne, I have two of those still in their original package... So, let me ask you: how does this cube turn? Would you compare it to a Rubik's brand or a Maru or another one?

Skarabajo.

I have one of those, got it a couple months ago. The turning is acceptable (i.e. the puzzle doesn't feel like it will break) but far from being speedcube-worthy.
