This is the second design of Greg for me in 2012.

It is an awesome puzzle with perfect and smooth moves.

Excellent puzzle guys! Greg told me about this puzzle the other day, and I'm so surprised to see it produced so quickly! Well done. :)

Hello puzzle crusaders!
I wanted to give a shout out to Claus and Greg's fantastic creation. This was the first puzzle of this type that I assembled and dyed myself, and wanted to share it with you. I'm very happy with the quality, which has absolutely nothing to do with my building ability, but has everything to do with Greg's brilliant design. The assembling of this puzzle was incredibly easy and intuitive, requiring only 2 M3 screws, one 10mm and the other 15 mm. I thought I would include pictures so you can see what a black bodied version of the puzzle looks like:

This last picture led to me unable to get it back to a solved state quickly. I was able to solve it from here using 3x4x5 techniques, so phew! :shock:
To those considering buying this puzzle, have no qualms whatsoever about your ability to assemble this yourself, as if I can do it, I can assure you that anyone can!!
Great job Claus and Greg, and thanks for bringing to all of us the opportunity to enjoy these fantastic cuboids!

Thanks for the great review

Believe me, Claus and Greg, the pleasure is all mine. I'm just gettin' started with you guys :wink:

By the way, I should also mention that the stickers, applied in the classic rubik's clockwise red white and blue configuration were absolutely perfect from Oliver Nagy. This is the first time that I've worked with him directly, and although I know that you all already know this about him, his service and quality was absolutely fantastic! A true valued resource to the puzzle community.

I agree Sigurd, and the dying was surprisingly easy to do!

Oh now I'm curious. What I want to see is how this goes together with only 2 screws. Any chance for some assembly pics?

Here are some assembly pictures. Here you see half of the core withe the screw in the top, the other half is buried in the puzzle with the other screw. All of the other pieces are assembled in place like a jigsaw puzzle!
