We have been prepared for this cube for atmost half year. This cube is amazingly good, turns smooth with good corner cutting. Thanks for the brilliant design of TomZ.
As most of puzzle friends prefer black and white, we shall the traditional black and white bodies. Besides, we have 3 limited editions, blue, checker I (blue & white), checker II (black & white).

Comments from TomZ : "I have received the 4x4x6 yesterday and I must say I'm very impressed. You stayed very close to the original design and the turning is perfect! Congratulations on the awesome product."
I am very happy to hear that, share with you all the TomZ video review as below,
4x4x6 Cuboid by Calvin (hknowstore) and TomZ

We are currently talking to our worldwide business partners about the pre-wholesales orders. If anyone in the puzzles business and interested to be our oversea distributors, feel free to contact me at calvinfan@hknowstore.com .
We would like most of our partners or distributors made their pre-wholesales orders and have the cubes in stock first. Then, we set a lucky date to officially release it to the market.

Are you guys going to do the 3x4x5 next? I know MF8 already has a version out, but maybe you can do it a bit... better.

Hi Calvin,

Respect to you, well done. I like how there has been good co-operation with the designer, and the original design has been considered with a high priority. It does not matter to me if we sticker it, I actually prefer to sticker it and have 2 sheets for some spare stickers.

Cheers,
Burgo.

Congratulations to both of you, Tom and Calvin.
The original puzzle is a very good one. (I have got mine last August). Judging from Tom's video, the new one turns incredibly well. :D
I'm glad for all who could not afford the Shapeways version that it will be available as a mass-produced version.
I like this kind of close cooperation between designer and manufacturing :D
I'll order one for sure!

This is well timed. I have Ayi's 4x4x5 & 5x5x4 and C4U 3x3x4 already and was going to order the mf8 3x4x5 (despite the slightly down reviews) as I love the cuboids!
So this has gone straight to the top of my shopping list.

Good luck with this fantastic relationship both of you.

I hope this collaboration is a sign of things to come. Why choose the 4x4x6? Is it because the design was "open source"? I hope Tomz gets more than just his name on the inside of the puzzle :(

Thanks! (I can't watch the video's from work)

I love it when these cuboids use common sizes, it opens up a lot of possibilities for sticker mods :)

Yes, this cube will be pre-assembled, stickered and in a nice packaging box.
You will know the price when it is officially launched to the market. ^^

TomZ 4x4x6 cuboid is fantastic puzzle, we like to bring it out to the market.
We have a private deal with TomZ. No worry, whoever work with me will definitely get what he deserved or even more.

Thanks so much for doing this, Calvin!

If you're open to ideas for other puzzles to produce, I'd love to see a face-turning icosahedron... I know MF8 is making one but I want the "classic" one too, like in Bob Hearn's avatar. Maybe you could work with him...

But, can you show me the classic face-turning icosahedron or the reference web link ?

Here is Bob Hearn's Face Turning Icosahedron.

The 4x4x6 looks fantastic Calvin. I feel that your company is going to have real potential. Personally, I would suggest a puzzle design from Eric Vergo and Will Kretschmer (I would vote for the Dreidle Skewb and Rex Rhombic Dodecahedron respectively).

I dont want this thread to keep being about ideas for you to produce, but I can't help myself but making suggesions.
For a cuboid, I would say TomZ's 4x5x6 puzzle! That would be very very nice product!

Or basically any puzzle in the shape of a Rhombic Triacontahedron, simply because there aren't any yet!

Or TomZ's Pentultimate.

TomZ's 4x5x6 puzzle is a nice puzzle. Rhombic Triacontahedron and TomZ's Pentultimate are challenges.

I know there have been so many cuboids being produced lately, but I think TomZ's other cuboids deserve to be mass-produced as well. I think with a brand like yours supporting him, Tom would be able to invent so many more amazing puzzles :D

I noticed I didn't even congratulate you on your new cube. I jumped straight to suggesting new puzzles.
I think it is so nice that you did a full collaboration with Tom on this one.
I know it can't be nothing but an amazing product and I can't wait to purchase one.
I would also like to thank you for making the decision of producing it in the classic color plastic.
All in all, this is announcement is just perfect news! :)

My friend, Jonathan Beals, has made an very interesting Stop Motion solving video on youtube :
4x4x6 Tower Cuboid Stop Motion

This particular stop motion solve was done utilizing a cage-reduction method. The scramble started by changing the shape, resulting in a 4x4x4-like solve due to the preserved edges. A typical scramble would maintain the shape during the initial scramble, followed by the shape-warp. Due to time limitations Jonathan chose to solve the cuboid like a 4x4x4 but it is fully functional as the 4x4x6.
The video consists of 1208 frames and took 8 hours of filming and tailor-made fantastic music effects.
Hope you all like it.

Great video Calvin. The puzzle moves beautifully. Much better than the 3x4x5.

We are proud to bring out our TomZ 4x4x6 Cuboid to all cubers and puzzle collectors in a couple of hours. That is the frist puzzle of our wide puzzles range of Calvin's Puzzles.

The TomZ 4x4x6 Cuboid includes black, white, blue, checker I (blue & white) and checker II (black & white). We have 2 packagings, the small clear box and large display box. With gold official label of Calvin's Puzzle on the box, the puzzle looks much more grand and valuable.

The goal of this puzzle is to scramble the puzzle, and then restore each faces to it's original colour. But beware, not only do the colors intermingle, the puzzle also changes its shape! The shape-shift feature makes it more challenge and interesting.

If you like cubic puzzles, you should get one! These can also be the wonderful and surprising gifts to your friends, families and yourselves.

Cube specifications as below,
Dimension : 60x60x90 mm
Weight : about 220
Packaging : small clear box / large display box
Certification : CE & toy safety passed

PS: Be noted that blue, checker I (blue & white) and checker II (black & white) are limited edition.
