In Mefferts newsletter, they said that you can order the crazy cubes from their site, but I can't seem to find them?..

The Nesletter I've got says:
18. May 2010
Subject: Puzzle News as of May 18. 2010 - Teraminx & Crazy 3x3 Cubes by Mf8 reserve now.
I think, you can make a reservation now (on the reserve page) and you'll get an email, when you can order them.

Interesting that this hasn't been brought up yet, but the Crazy 3x3's are now available on Mefferts. I've been lazy on checking my email & I noticed I got can email from ChangeDetection.com. So I just noticed that the puzzles have been available since Friday, June 11th.

But it's weird, they're advertising 8 different ones; each with a name from the 8 planets in our solar system. But they all have the same picture :?

There's no real need. I mean sure the case that they show on the picture probably can't work on some, but it saves the effort on taking several different pictures. With the Golden Egg and MorphEgg pictures, they were just PhotoShopped to be different colours. And like when they a twin package, they're just the 2 individual pictures put together.

Free Air-shipping to anywhere in the world where there is a Post Office will continue.

Please Note: that once you receive our auto-responder email acknowledging your payment that means
that your order is being processed and will be shipped promptly, you should receive it usually within two to three weeks. We only send out Tracking numbers if requested, as their main function is to prevent your local Post Man from stealing your puzzle.

This is mainly applies to Italy where local theft of parcels has been quite common in the last two years. The Hong Kong Post Office only Guarantees delivery to your country but takes no responsibility for the safety of your local Postal delivery.

We are still receiving a lot of orders with incomplete address: Your Zip code and Country name must
be clearly shown, if your parcel is returned to us due to incomplete/incorrect address we will charge you the second postage fee which in some case can be more than what you paid for your whole puzzle order.

Our Shopping cart is heavily subsidized and designed not to make a profit
but hopefully just break even, so any waste like double shipping is not fair to the other puzzlers that
are more careful, we hope that you understand.
But I still don't get the differences between all of the puzzles. Those figures don't really make much sense.

The faces with the + mean that the circle stays stationary when the side is turned and the ones with X the circle moves with the side.

My two Crazy 3x3x3 from Meffert's have arrived. 17 days between order and delivery to my door.
I'm very pleased.
I have now: Mercury, Neptune, Earth, Jupiter
It's nothing for speedsolvers, though. Each one comes with its individual challenge, probably Jupiter being the easiest. Do not underestimate them!!! :wink:
Earth is the first one that does not follow the "specification" exactly. I'm mentioning this only because I've never understood why some people here concieve it as a problem, that the colors of moving and stationary faces are not always following the pictures above. The logical specification is important, how the faces are located relativly to each other. Complaining about "wrong" specifications is similar to saying "I cannot solve this Rubik's Cube, it has purple instead of orange" :lol:
Probably I'll order from time to time more planets. :)

I was thinking about getting one of these but the day I went online to order it, they were sold out at mefferts.

You said you thought Jupiter was the easiest. If I get one, I would like it to be the most challenging of the lot to figure out how to solve for the first time. Of the ones you have, which one is the most challenging?

Thanks.

RobertPaulJr, I would think that the Mercury cube would be the greatest challenge because all of the middles move separately to the edges, except on one side. Please correct me if i'm wrong though.

Robert, it makes sense. Is this your experience? If konsassen or someone who has tried various ones could verify this, I would appreciate it.
Thanks.

In my opinion (regarding the four I have):
1. Jupiter - pretty easy
2. Mercury - quite a bit harder
3. Neptune
4. Earth - hardest because it is not symmetric
Earth and Neptune are probably close.

As always: It will depend from where you are coming.
But I'm pretty sure about 1 and 2.
Mercury is certainly not the hardest.
EDIT: It has been said before: The easiest by far is the regular circle cube. (I've modded my Mercury once. Vdude had been frustrated because it was sooo easy. :) )

Nothing but truth in this statement. :( I was SO let down by this puzzle.

I should get the crazy 4x4x4 II when I order puzzles next ( and an FTO if I can... )

I think a circle FTO is in order, actually.

Maybe that can be my next easier design.
