Hello! I thought it might be fun to have a thread where we can share the joy of a package that has just arrived. It's kind of fun to see what other collectors have obtained, and it's also fun to show your new puzzles to people who won't think you're crazy for being so overjoyed over a plastic toy. :D

This thread's final direction was the inspiration:
viewtopic.php?f=1&t=12505&start=50

I'll start with one I just received! A 4 color Dino! :D

Good idea jason. I'll definitely be looking here for some interesting puzzles :) They're always so awesome to see straight from the shipping box, you know?

Yesterday I got an interesting cube from Australia.
It's more like a paperweight in chrome and leather...

Does it turn, or unfold or anything like that? It doesn't seem to be one piece.

OOOH, they're finally coming! This is great news. Can't wait to get mine!

And interesting paperweight there georges. How big is that cube? By the looks of it, the side length is at least twice that of a normal 3x3.

It's just like a standard cube, save for the weight of course.
It weighs (hi katsmom!) 370 grams, whereas the China made chrome cube that was sold some time ago weighs 398 grams.
(the big one on the picture below)

From ebay at exorbitant prices, usually. They're *long* out of production.

I got this one in a purchase directly from another forum member who knew I was looking for them. I'll take more pics soon and post them in the Dino Star Colors thread.

The contents of the package aren't really rare, but the amount of puzzles is a very rare occasion for me, so i felt it best to post here:
Image

4 White Square-1 DIYs (at least 3 are going to be round-1s)
2 Black Square-1 DIYs (at least 1 is going to be a round-1)
1 White 3x3 DIY Type A
1 Black 3x3 DIY Type A (for a new mod which should start construction shortly)
1 Sky Blue 3x3 DIY Type A
1 Red C4Y type DIY
1 ES 2x2 (for a friend)
1 ES 4x4 (for the same friend as above)

I didn't think to take a picture while it was still in the packaging, but today I got the Turn-Key puzzle designed by Goh Pit Khiam and crafted by Eric Fuller. It is very nice and though it is based on trinary, it was still somewhat challenging and if nothing else, you can admire both the great craftsmenship and mathematical beauty of it (or at least I can; I know Roxanne wouldn't :wink:

Sorry for the quality, you can see better photos here

Hey! I resemble that remark! But I get binary so trinary is just 3? Anyway, mine should come within a week or so and I'll let you know how I get on.

I wasn't saying that you didn't/wouldn't get the math, I was saying that you wouldn't appreciate the puzzle for its mathematical beauty. For instance, consider Euler's identity: e^(iπ) + 1 = 0. Do you find this beautiful? I do. It uses 5 very important constants once each: e, i, π, 1, and 0. It uses 3 fundamental operations once each: exponentiation, multiplication, and addition. And it ascribes one thing as equal to another, linking the 5 constants and 3 operation together. To me, this is just as beautiful as anything you'd find in nature. Paul Nahin wrote a 400 page book on the equation, Dr. Euler's Fabulous Formula, in which he says it is "the gold standard for mathematical beauty." Constance Reid said that it is "the most famous formula in all mathematics." Gauss is reported to have commented that if this formula was not immediately apparent to a student on being told it, the student would never be a first-class mathematician. After proving the identity in a lecture, Benjamin Peirce, a noted nineteenth century mathematician and Harvard professor, said, "It is absolutely paradoxical; we cannot understand it, and we don't know what it means, but we have proved it, and therefore we know it must be the truth." Stanford mathematics professor Keith Devlin says, "Like a Shakespearean sonnet that captures the very essence of love, or a painting that brings out the beauty of the human form that is far more than just skin deep, Euler's equation reaches down into the very depths of existence." (These quote are all from here). Are you offended now? :wink:

I know a few programming languages and have always done well in my math classes so with that background, I just loved the tern-key puzzle. It was just as fun putting it back together as it was taking it apart! I did solve it in one go but did enjoy the challenge, mechanics, and mathematics involved.

I did show this puzzle to my parents and a few friends, but sadly they don't share the same appreciation. To each their own, and more fun for me! :P Looking forward to another solve of it!

Well, I haven't got a picture, but I got my Golden Cube today, finally. Haven't solved it but I did take it apart and put it back together. Which, incidentally, is not easy to do.

Welcome to the forums kitslam!

Yes, that's your/my 4 color dino. I'm looking for the other dino variations, but a big part of me hopes I don't find them for awhile! :D

Does that mean you'll leave some for the rest of us now?

That will depend on the color. :twisted: :D

Well, I haven't got a picture, but I got my Golden Cube today, finally. Haven't solved it but I did take it apart and put it back together. Which, incidentally, is not easy to do.


My set of golden cubes arrived today, as well. I have succesfully managed to scramble, not solve, disassemble, and reassemble the copper one, so far :)

My golden cubes also arrived today. I don't have a picture, but I think by now everyone knows what they look like.

Jason: Have you posted a recent collection picture/pictures lately? With all these fantastic puzzles that you're getting, i'd love to see everything ELSE you've got. Not to mention your, what, 5 dino stars next to each other? If you keep collecting at this rate and expand your tastes a bit you might give georges a run for his money in a few years. Key words are might and a few years.

-Ben

A rumpled 3x3x3 cube and two DIY face turning octahedrons.

Ten minutes later: one of the DIY FTO's is assembled.

Georges, the idea is that you sticker every face with the same colour!
By the way, my FTO also arrived today. :-)
