Judging from your photo, excellent suggestion!

The title of this thread should have added the "sent puzzles" description too!

I thought I had many different types of twisty octahedra in my collection already. But today a new and very special one arrived:

Thanks, Tony! :)

The puzzles I received yesterday aren't exactly rare, but they came from Frank, so I consider them rare. I got a Face Turning Octahedron, Big 3x3x3, Black Golden Cube, 1x1x1, BiCube, and a Pyramorphinx. (I'll post a picture later.)

A 1x1x1 by Frank is rare, and absolutely appropriate for this thread.

I didn't know that it was a puzzle, but I also got sent one of those in purple. Probably my best collector's item.

Well, that Pillowed Master Skewb cost me two Dogics I had to spare (you might have read about that offer elsewhere), but it's definitively worth it:

Turns nice and smoothly. Just have to work out the solution for this guy ... :)

It uses the original square-1 scheme. That's how a square-1 is SUPPOSED to be stickered. When I order stickers for a couple ideas I have I'll be ordering new sq-1 stickers so I can have it how it's supposed to be instead of the rubik's standard.

When the auction for this puzzle started, he was still alive.
And when I opened the package today, I felt some goosebumps.

Some pictures of the puzzles I received in the last days.
Dave's puzzles had been owned by Frank before.

The Q on the Pinwheel Cube has been rubbed off nearly because I took the puzzle with me to the ice hockey opening game and played with it waiting in the queue to get in.

All puzzles are really recommendable and of a very good quality. Thanks to all the builders for the effort they took.

Wow, it's my turn. A Google search for "rampart cube" didn't bring up anything meaningful, so is this unique? It's 3x2.5x3! One layer Rubik, centre layer windmill, and one layer Fisher. That's a nice twist.

I should have posted here last month, but I recieved Flambore's Half-Truncated set. This is and will always be my favorite puzzle by far, being the exact puzzle that got me into puzzling awhile back made by the person who brought me and many others into puzzling.

I received a medium 1x4x4 designed by Olz and made by incredible - I really like this puzzle - it turns well and is just the right size!
Also 10cm and 7cm Svetnashki puzzles - all the way from Russia - maybe not so rare, but not yet common, either:

(I can usually solve the 1x4x4 without algs, but as you can see, I've got two center pieces flipped and cannot remember how I fixed them last time...)

Nice to see the Svetnashky puzzles. I'm still waiting for mine, ordered one last week, can't wait...

By the way, they now sell a blue one and also an orange one :D . Too bad I ordered mine already, I would've loved a blue one... Maybe for another time :P

Two questions: what is the solved position and how do they turn?

- The main goal is to have the entire puzzle area transparent or if you want, all dark (except one square). But you can think of any possible pattern with that 4x4 area and do it.

F being blue, with just the inner slices, (U2 R2)x2

I use it a lot when solving my cubes with only half turns.

TomZ's Dino Skewb and Drewseph's Master Skewb:

Here they are sitting like friendly brothers on my desk:

Probably, I'm as of today the first and only man on this planet owning these two great puzzles both! Wow!!!!!

I also got a 1x2x3, but I don't know what sort of screw/spring/washer to use (I got it from TomZ, so I will just PM to ask...). More pics to follow (perhaps).


Lol when I ordered my first prototye, it wasn't filleted... I prefer it like that :lol:

Can U make a review when it's stickered plz, I'm just wondering what you think of it (means a lot to me :D )

:D Greg :D

P.S: I used a white, yellow, red, blue, orange, green color scheme at first and recently I recieved a black vinyl sheet... Trust me the black, yellow, red, blue, green, orange color scheme looks soooo cool!!

The hollow 1x2x5 came in a handmade box with cut-away windows to show what's inside. Nice touch!

ok I got this beast today and its by far my favourite twistypuzzle!

It will need to be dyed (later today) and stickered before I can truly present it for real!
Thank you Timur for taking your time and going through 6 verions before you were satisfied! Its truly worth it!

This puzzle is SO small! yet so smooth!

I picked up a Junior Xenomorphix courtesy of Steveo last night! It's a little bit "gappy" but otherwise very nice (turning is very smooth.
