I think the keychain bandage cube is very interesting. How much do you charge for one like that?

It's a little hard to tell from the low res pictures, but do the bandaged pieces have straight edges? What I mean is do they look like seperate pieces or or single block?

If they look seperate I wont be getting them, but if they look like blocks I will have to add a few of those to my collection :)

Also, will all puzzles be available in both white and black?

There are a few sites selling them already, they don't have straight edges. They're just ordinary cubes, but bandaged with large tiles that cover several pieces.

If you want a bandaged puzzle with seamless joints, feel free to grab the super glue, Drummel, Epoxy sculpt, etc to build one yourself, or commission one.

It's not necessary to have fused parts molded to manufacture bandaged puzzles. To do so would require new molds and be prohibitively expensive. I believe the existing puzzles are fine provided the tiles are glued on strongly, though they could have used a higher quality 3x3x3. Modding an existing puzzle by gluing the pieces together individually will yield a better quality puzzle, yes, but if you believe you can simply build one, you're missing the point: not all puzzle fans are modders or have the desire/ ability to make their own. It is wonderful that these unique puzzles are made available to the public.

My bricks 4x4x4 cube is a great puzzle, albeit currently in a thoroughly scrambled state. I'm thinking about getting the 5x5x5 version as well. Does the 5x5x5 also use a Rubik's type mech?

Yes, the 5x5x5 also use a Rubik's type mech?

else, once I have a plan to made the bandaged cubes with straight edges, but the so much kinds of the stickers are terrible, so the ABS sheet is more favorable,

On the following pics of your 4x4x4 bandaged cube, there's a trouble.

Image

On the black one, green face isn't bandaged like on white cube.
This black cube is too much bandaged and is like a 2x2x2.
Is it a mistake ?


Thanks for this great collection of bandaged cubes.

Actually it can make turns like a 4x4, when all of the pieces line up. Move all of the bandaged corners to a (bottom) face and the opposite (top) can turn.

He is saying the black cube can’t. It is miss tiled.

Oh, I didn't see that. It seems like a mistake, since it's only on the black one. However, if it is oriented correctly it should still move like a 4x4.

I'd like to buy some (4 or 5) bandaged 4x4x4 and 5x5x5, preferably the hardest to solve and with different solutions. I thought about 4x4x4 (234) and 4x4x4 wall cube. Any other suggestions?

If you want harder, try 5x5x5 wall cube (or 5x5x5 Burr cube) and AI 4x4x4.

You could ask them, perhaps only the one in the photo is wrong. Anyway I ordered the white one to be sure!

Looking at the pictures I'd say these are just 4x4x4's with the bandaging being applied by gluing ties to the faces. I'd say its clear someone made a gluing error in that one pic.

I’m sorry for bumping a somewhat old topic but I’ve finally decided to get into these

The Cubetwist web sites listed above are not currently working. Is there a definitive list of all of these bandaged puzzles made so far? I know that they initially came out in a few batches and that the first batch of them was sold through Meffert’s (doesn’t seem to be there anymore). Are there plans to make any more and/or any DIY kits containing just the tiles so that we can come up with our own bandaging?

I have already purchased and received the following 4 from http://www.puzzlemaster.ca
Bandaged Pyraminx
Bandaged 2x2x2
4x4x4 Burr Cube
4x4x4 B334 Bandage Cube (the one that sort of looks like a 3x3x4)

I have just ordered the following 13 from http://www.hknowstore.com
3x3x3 Big Block
3x3x3 3-Slices
3x3x3 2-Bar
3x3x3 Bicube (like the Meffert’s original)
3x3x3 Bandaged 3 (Hidotoshi’s design)
Void Bandaged 3 Cube
Void Bicube
4x4x4 AI Bandage Cube (the one with the 4 bandaged 2x2x2 corners)
4x4x4 B443 Bandage Cube (the one that sort of looks like a 4x4x3)
4x4x4 B234 Bandage Cube (the one that sort of looks like a 2x3x4)
5x5x5 Maze Cube
5x5x5 Burr Cube
5x5x5 Bandaged Centers Cube

They were out of stock of the 3x3x3 Fuse Cube so I ordered one from http://www.lightake.com

Note that I’m only purchasing the full size versions in black (not the keychains). And I have not purchased the 4x4x4 and 5x5x5 Wall Cubes because they are the same as the Burr Cubes. This gives me 18 puzzles. Is this all of them or am I missing some? If I am missing some, where can I purchase them?

I have discovered that I was missing 6 of these:
4x4x4 B244 (the one that kind of looks like a 2x4x4)
4x4x4 Bandaged revenge (the one with the large 2x4 bandaging on 2 sides)
5x5x5 B345 (the one that kind of looks like a 3x4x5)
5x5x5 B355 (the one that kind of looks like a 3x5x5)
5x5x5 B445 (the one that kind of looks like a 4x4x5)
5x5x5 B455 (the one that kind of looks like a 4x5x5)

The reason that I didn’t notice these at first is that HK Now Store only shows them as white body puzzles and I generally overlook them (I favor black). I contacted Calvin and he said that they do have them in stock with black bodies so I went ahead and ordered them too.

That brings me up to 24 puzzles for this collection. I am missing any more?
