It looks like it is just some pieces from a 4 layer super square 1.

Well I think he made this one up himself. Just the outer layers of a supersquare-1 removed and put some stickers on..

Well THAT's embarrassing. I convinced myself it wasn't a super square 1 mod because I didn't think the core looked that way. That's a huge relief to be wrong. :)

Winning bidder: i***o( 635Feedback score is 500 to 999)

I just found it kind of funny that the buyer was i***o! :P!

I'll contribute to the list to make it a more meaningful post:

http://cgi.ebay.com/Rare-Custom-Rubik-T ... dZViewItem
A Hapern Meier Tetrahedron for $342.51

http://cgi.ebay.com/Extremely-frustrati ... dZViewItem
A Tomy Megaminx for $15.00 Buy-it-Now ... Makes me mad since I always wait for new puzzles to be listed and missed it!

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... :IT&ih=008
Not really rare, but I was pleased that I was able to snag this for myself (always wanted a clock!) for only 4.20 GBP!

LOL that was me. The seller used the label "rare". As I have done in the past,
I had made sure sto the seller that the reason I bid was because of that label.
If it was a new custom one, it cannot be rare. Therefore the auction is misleading
and I will get my money back. ;)
(and yes, it has happened to me a couple times before, but that's the name of the game!)

Jason... you also *just* beat me for that Cheese. Congrats! :)

Only one thing, you forgot to write done the prices:

$259.64 for the huge magic! (sadly, I live in Australia, that would have been wonderful
to place as a gate door LOL - and I would had given Jason a better run for his money! ;) ).

$274.69 for the cheese.

Finally, 52 euros for the rare(?) square-1 derivative like puzzle

:)

Pantazis, I'm always looking over my shoulder in fear on ebay because I know we share similar taste in puzzles. I'll be sure to make a post about the oversized Magic tiles and any info I get with them!

I found a picture of the super square 1 core:
http://alexgohblogs.blogspot.com/2008/0 ... are-1.html

It does indeed seem to be the core of the rare number puzzle. Definitely misleading!! :evil:

LOL but it is me who have losted count of the times I lost to you!
But I must admit, you are a very worthy and fair opponent, and it is good to see such items
ending up to this forum's members.

Indeed. There is a very fine line between a collectable and a new mod.
As a collector, I am prepared to pay enough to get a rare puzzle, while as a mathematician,
I can't stand some newly made mods for which I would never even bother to twist.
So you can imagine how it feels when a rare puzzle is proved to be a common mod.
It makes my blood boil!!! Grrr....

Time for the seller to issue a refund.

So. Who's giving me a Cheese for, say, an Astrolabacus and some other small item (to compensate for the total cost)?
Sadly, I don't watch auctions as fervently now as I used to, mostly due to that I try not to spend money on puzzles.
(Huh! Did I tell you that it's almost impossibly anyway?)

I recognize that builder. One of the best I've ever seen on YouTube. :D He's made some amazing puzzles. His most recent being a face turning tetrahedron:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kVuYfZ-vikk

He's even made a Brilicube and a 5-Layer Square-1. :)

He is an outstanding puzzle builder, indeed.
I am just surprised about the price, when it is possible to get a incredible Master Tetrahedron for $400.
But that's ebay... (got fooled or seduced often enough myself :roll: )

I have the standard cube

as well as the Master cubo (and the 15 cubo),

all from Mondadori, the Italian 'ITC',
but I too have never seen the gift packaging with the booklet.
If the winner is a member of this forum, I'd like to have a copy of the booklet, please.

Seller domingosito cleans up on Buy It Now auctions:

A padlock puzzle for $99.99 buy it now? Perhaps I should put mine up on eBay. It is interesting, but I never thought it would be that price...
To be fair, it is the German version, in the packaging.

...then this for $150?

Finally a Gripple for $99?

I own all of these puzzle and think of them as not overly rare, yet in one day they net $350...

LOL talk about overpriced items. Lately, I have seen plenty of those from 2-3 specific sellers.
And I don't even bother to place them in my ebay watching list.

;)

Wow, I love the "PYRAMID Puzzle White Edition!! For Rubik Fans!" $50 for what appears to be a knock-off Pyraminx?

You all are going to think I'm really dumb* but I just realized that each of the light green center tiles can slide out and rotate! I've only had this puzzle for about 10 years :oops:

$99 for that. No way. Not even with instructions! This seller has put a lot up at very high prices. He must have raided an old toy warehouse.





*I probably am

The same buyer bought them all. Maybe he also wants my Padlock puzzle for half the price without the box? :D

An unopened Rubik's Sajt for $240 - a bargain!

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... 0312536807

I have the strong feeling that it went to some member of this forum from Norway.
If I am correct, please post pictures after you get it to the Rubik's Sajt page.

viewtopic.php?f=14&t=11506

Also I'm very curious to know if the sticker saying Rubik's Sajt is on the cellophane or not.
The seller didn't deem to answer my question regarding this.

Are you sure? For the Padlock, I see one offer that was declined. For the Clever Disk, I see two offers that were declined, and for the Gripple, I see no offers. But I don't see any actual sales.

You are quite right, Georges. :D And I was already planning on posting a picture on the Rubik's Sajt page as soon as my cheese arrives. In fact, it was that topic which made me realize that I *needed* a cheese in the first place. I was very surprised that nobody outbid me on this auction, especially you Georges. :wink: Although my maximum bid was considerably higher than the final price, it was by no means unbeatable, since I had just forked out alot on a used Rubik's cheese a few days earlier.

This pattern seems to be happening to me alot: First I bought a domino, then a few weeks later I was able to get one in package for the same price. Later on I bought an octahedron and a few days later I was again able to get a sealed star puzzler for about the same amount. And now I got an unopened cheese a lot cheaper than the used one I bought a couple of days earlier. Not that I am complaining... :wink: I am very happy with my luck, considering that someone bought these olympic rings from the same seller for more than my unopened cheese:

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&item=230312541888
Olympic rings in used condition for £175.

By the way, I was also able to get a white magellan from the same seller for £27:
http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&item=230312324793

I used to think the Rubik's Sajt was a very rare puzzle, but I have seen six of them auctioned just during the last two months. I know that a few of them were already mentioned on the Rubik's Sajt page, but I will list them here for future price reference:

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=200258384063
A Rubik's cheese (the version with the grey/white pieces) in good condition with some light surface marks and a bit discoloration on some parts for $225.

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&item=350124702938
A Rubik's cheese in excellent condition with few surface scratches for $350.

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&item=200276710585
A rubik's cheese with surface scratches and a bit loose mechanism for $275.

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&item=360109233848

I have the strong feeling that it went to some member of this forum from Norway.

You are quite right, Georges. :D [cut]

Thank you Klara, I didn't want to post your name in the first place.
I remembered doing some transaction for your Ebay ID.

I saw this the first day it was listed and decided to pull the trigger on this one... I REALLY hope that this is a Deluxe Edition cube I got for the price... The last time I tried for one I knew for sure it was, Pantazis beat me (really badly :!:) I won this for $41.07 :D Please let me know how I did :)

That's a relief that I didn't do anything too stupid...yet!

I hope it's still in decent condition... I can't see any logo on the red or blue center tiles... Does the logo wear off easily?

Or perhaps it's on the Orange tile :P Nah, I'm never that lucky!

That depends on what you mean by "easily." If you only handle it a little the logo can last. If you handle it constantly it will wear off. Some logos seem to last longer than others.

Some heads (the disney ones) are quite rare. Darth Maul isn't. They go for around $5-$20. Depending on how many persons are bidding on the particular one.

Mefferts once had a license from Disney to produce the heads, but once it expired Disney wanted too much to elongate it. So they had to quit production. Except for one set Meffert keeps and will keep for himself they're out of stock.

Do you mean Warner Bros? Mefferts still sells Mickey heads on his site, as well as different puzzle balls.

May I just point out to some of you that the name of this thread is "Items you don't see everyday or that sold for a high price". Some of you are posting stuff that sold for cheap, sorry if I come across as mean but my OCD kicks in :wink:

But most of the ones going for cheap are posted because they're rare and normally go for a lot, thus, you don't seem them every day. ;)

Anyway, I have one auction I've wanted to post, but I can't find it. :( The "Smart Toy Shop" on Ebay had a Transparent Axis Cube up for auction. I think it got removed, anyone have the link?

A collection of 6 very well made mods (may even be factory made by the looks of them) without stickers sold for BIN $600.

white Square One Diamond (a cuboctahedron version of a Square One)
white Brillicube
white Rubik's Edge (edges only 3x3x3)
white Square Two
black 1x2x3
black 5 layer Square One

Since these were sold from China, and considering the professional look of them, I wonder if we're going to start seeing mass produced versions of these for sale.
