I will be selling a new half-truncated cube on ebay within the next couple of days. A video of the exact puzzle can be found here:

More information and a link to the auction will come soon.

Many thanks to Adam Zamora for stickers.

I think this time I'm definitely bidding on this. Great work! I read your tutorial on your site.

Edit: Also I wanted to know if you can solve this? Will it come scrambled or completed? Is there a solution guide? If so, where?

Make sure you ask them to include the original box for this puzzle. It will make it worth much more. :o

If all goes well with eBay, I should be able to get it up for bidding tonight. Thanks everyone, for showing interest. This is my first auction so I'm not sure how successful it will be.

That is a pretty big price range... I would definitely sell one if I made one... I could make some good money... I'm kinda poor.

What do you think of this?
Also, do you think I should auction it with the box?


P.S. sorry for the bad photo. it was really shiny.

It wasn't a bad photo... it only blurred the top... it's fine... If I were to win this auction I could care less about the box... but I would be nervous that is might get damaged during shipping so you may want to put the box on... it also makes it seem more professional...

Wow. The price is getting up there. Good luck to anyone who placed a bid. I want to see how high the price can go for just a Half Truncated Cube.

Wow, we're down to the last hour. This is really nerve-racking for me. I wonder how Tony Fisher feels?
