Ew... Commercial stickers. How gross. :lol:

I can't wait to get one of these, but I wonder why they didn't bring out the 1x2x3 first.

It's a shame it isn't proportional or in black or white :(

Just for the sake of clearing out the situation..

I am aware of it ever since they first planned it.
However I am for the moment not allowed to speak anything about it. It's complicated...

I hoped that this wouldn't get here, but whatever.. I just wanted to make it clear

If you really wanted to, im sure you could paint the pieces black or white. And throwing on your own pair of original colored stickers really isn't too bad of a challenge. They need to make a 1x2x4 as well as a 1x2x3 now. :(

More likely than not, you can probably slice off most of the outer layer to make the cubies proportional because the mechanism can, in no way, extend that far out. At the worst, you may have to shorten the screws a bit.

keep in mind that this is considering that the cubies are of nxnxm measurements, I can't really tell from the pictures but it appears this is the case...

With the whole new Rit dye and Acetone combo you could actually make this a black puzzle or white puzzle.
