well, if i were to order one off cube4you, it would still probably be close to the same price..

my white 3x3x2 came today, for like $20. i messed it up and solved it (by luck..) and basically made my own algorithms to solve it. idk if there's a tutorial by my method, so i think im going to go on UltimateMagicCube and make a 3x3x2 if possible, and make a tutorial. :)

only been about 20 days but i let new years week slip because by me there was alot of snow and i realized there were probably delays

domino can be simulated in UMC with a bandaged 4x4x4.

Wow, I never thought about that before. :lol:

I suppose I should thank you now.

I received the five that I ordered from popbuying yesterday. As others have said, the stickers aren't that great but at least the cubies are standard size so it will be easy to replace them with cubesmith stickers. One of mine unscrewed itself and came apart so be careful about this. I'm kind of glad that it happened though because it allowed me to see just how much oily lube these have in them. I’m going to take all of mine apart and clean this crap out of them and then reassemble them using washers against the springs.

My popbuying.com 3x3x2's arrived yesterday. They're exactly the same as the ones I bought off eBay recently. Only a lot cheaper. I think the quality is perfect.

Knock-off of what?

It is a KO of the Rubik’s Domino (with spindle mechanism) but it’s considered an OK KO since the patient has expired a long time ago. This is just like the 3X3X3 KOs.

I just figured out the 3x3x2 on MarkSS' applet - I'm still waiting for my 3x3x2 to arrive in the post. :(

I understand that this new 3x3x2 has the same mechanism as the Spindle Domino, but I wouldn't call it a knock off. For one, Domino's never had coloured stickers on all-black cubies. No one will think this is an authentic Domino.

Yay! My 3x3x2 finally arrived today. I emailed the guy 2 days ago because I'd been waiting for a while and he said it was posted on the 15th and should take about a month to arrive. It took exactly 30 days. :D

Mine finally arrived. It's an excellent puzzle. It's my new favorite puzzle (although this will soon change once I get a helicopter cube).

I got 2 from Popbuying.com, but one arrived as a defect.

I checked their warranty:
You can ship items back for a replacement/repair, but you'll need to pay for the shipping fees...
Which I figured would cost more than the puzzle :evil:

After some lengthy email exchanges from the customer service,
all the compensation I get is a $2 coupon for the next purchase :(
