BUMP, but I have a serious question and a new thread would be the inferior choice.
I have got mine two days ago and I have stickered it today.
The turning is really bad. As others have said that it turns quite well, I'm asking myself what causes the problem.
I've got the transparent version and the plastic seems pretty stiff.
Have others a transparent, too? Especially the Helicopter turns are horrible. I'm not one who is complaining easily and can manage most of my puzzles very well, but here I need sometimes a minute to do a single 180 degree turn.
Most pieces have no caps and they catch on each and every move.
Has anybody had similar problems?
Even when everything is aligned and I have just turned a "face" and I want to turn the very same "face" again, I'll have a problem again.
EDIT: I have tried to get to the screws to loosen them. I could not get a single centre cap off. Any advice?
EDIT2: No response whatsoever! Yesterday I have tried it again and got two centre caps off. The tension of one face was incredibly tight. It turns OK now.
I think optically the transparent version is really beautiful:

I've tried to produce some nice reflexions with my flash.
