Where can I get a Helicopter cube from? All of the shops that I've seen that have previously sold them are out of stock. And thetwistystore.com is not working.

As far as an actual store that sells them, I'm not sure, but I know there is a seller on eBay. Search "helicopter cube" and you'll get a few hits. However, not sure whether these are KOs or not, to me they seem legitamate. Good luck finding one!

No problem, enjoy it! One of my favorite twisty puzzles so far, I'm sure you'll love it.

Which store did you buy from? I've been looking for a store to buy one of these from, and I want to use one that another forum member could vouch for.

I bought it on eBay. Just search Helicopter Cube and you will get a few results. I got mine from the seller izanesmithservo. I could pm you a link to it if you would like.

Huh?

I'll assume you're saying that there's a 2011 version of the helicopter cube. If that's what you're asking, I believe (at least I haven't heard of it) that the answer is no.

I'm fairly certain the helis on ebay are the ones from Jason's original run.

No. For some reason C1829 changed Dave's quote from:

Probably my fault. I make a lot of mistakes, so I edit a lot.

I hate to go too much off topic, but does anyone know what ever happened to the blue and gold helicopter cubes? I was excited for those.

I, too, was looking forward to the different color options.

I, too, wish to buy a helicopter cube. Everywhere I found it is out of stock except for ZTwist. It says that the Helicopter Cube is on sale, but the price reads $34.99. Is this the sale price? If it is, where can I buy a good yet cheap Helicopter Cube?

Haven't the helicopter cubes had a steady cost at $34.99? I suggest you buy one now before you can't buy one at all!

The original price was $25. Does anyone know where ZTwist is located? I kinda need to buy a white Helicopter Cube now! :lol:

They were originally $25 with $10 shipping so all of the places with free shipping charge $35.

Is ZTwist a legit site for these puzzles? Because I would like to know if they sell legit puzzles or they are just some KOs that still have great quality.

£52 for a Helicopter Cube is way too expensive. :(

Ummmm...that's not exactly what I asked for... :? A simple "yes" or "no" would do.

I agree. What's the cheapest place to buy a good quality Helicopter Cube "before I can't buy one at all?"

As far as I know, those are the only places left. Over the past month, I've seen some on eBay for around $35. Basically, they are out of stock almost everywhere, so the few that have been pointed out are probably the last ones available for sale. If you miss out on these, then you'll either have to wait for another production run, a creation of a knockoff, or buy a version on shapeways. There really aren't cheap alternatives available at this point. Hope it helps.

Chris

Hi!

I just got a mail from the owner of the ZTwist shop (quote including my original message) giving as well some info of the blue and gold Helicopter cubes:

Quote:
Oh hey! Yes i am seller izanesmithservo, and yes, Jason Smith is in my family. Black is it stock I just have not gotten to update my site yet but i will soon.
Yes, I will post them on ebay soon again.
Twisty store was sadly hacked halloween night. And yes, blue and gold are made, and trust me, they are cool. I may sell them soon.
Thanks!

Hello!

Some questions:
- Do you have black Helicopter Cubes in stock as well (on the homepage only white are shown)? And if yes, how can one choose the color? (I suppose via the mail after the order, right?)
- As I'm pretty sure you're the same person as the eBay member "izanesmithservo" =), do you plan on putting helicopter cubes on ebay again in the next time?
- And finally, just regarding the "smith" in your name, some post on the twistypuzzles.com forum, you're both from California and the fact that you're apparently the only person left with a higher number of helicopter cubes: Are you in any relation to the original producer Jason Smith? If yes, could you tell me what happened to thetwistystore.com and if there is / will be any progress on the blue and gold special editions?

Thanks already in advance!

All the best,

Benedikt

I was going to ask if they were still in stock too, but I guess that answers my question. :D I don't know whether to buy a black one or wait for the blue or gold ones. :?
