Cool cube.
The circle skewb (gb's 3.2.10) is stupid hard and confusing. I can do the skewb ultimate just fine, but this is ridiculously hard for me to see (as you can tell by my times).

How unfair.
Not posting this in "New Puzzles" to prevent a poor moderator from finding it later?

Nope :oops: . Apparently enough people spell it wrong that Google doesn't suggest the correct spelling. I have fixed the name, thanks.

Stupid! :lol: :lol:
I really laughed when I read that line. HA. That's a good description for a mere puzzle.
But since you solved it already you proved the fact to it that you are much smarter than it. :P

Ever since i saw this on a browse in the museum it has been number 1 on my wanted list. Italia 90 was the first world cup Ireland ever qualified for and it has a special place in my heart - as a kid my bedroom wall was covered with paraphernalia from this world cup so when i saw this puzzle i knew the little boy inside of me would never be happy until i had it......he's having a party now :D

Edit: Finally got around to taking new pictures!

Anyway, congrats! This is a very rare find! 8-)

What exactly is it? The pictures are very dark. Looks like it could be an 8x8x1? Oh... I think I figured it out. I believe its this:

I see a Masterball Cube in the 2009-image. But that is not unique. Claus Wenicker (who else?) owns one.

Yeah, indeed, I had assumed that the Total Mastercube from Eitan is unique.
Eitan has told me back in 2009 that he made only one. Claus, may I ask, where you got yours? Did you make it yourself?

Sorry Konrad,

It is complete casted by hand, also the master pieces. The both missing platon solids I built some weeks ago with a design Door has made for me.

Just received a Rolling Cubes puzzle :D so i can now "retire" my Lego version- mine has three cubes with the white/yellow tiles flipped (the 3 along the bottom) while Kastellorizo's version had two cubes flipped - i suspect it must have been a mistake during the production process.

I saw the item on ebay and contact the seller, but the seller replied that only uk bidders are allowed. Later I found him endding the auction early and relisting it as BIN for uk and ireland buyers. Then I bet you're the lucky guy. Congrats on the nice deal.

I received three puzzles this morning, including a logi-vip and a WWF masterball from Ton and a not-so-rare puzzler from ebay.

The puzzler is produced by Denver Mold Engeering Inc instead of Go Images shown in the museum. Who knows their relationship or which one produce the puzzle first?

Yes, when i contacted them first they said uk only too, but then i asked if i paid for registered shipping if they would consider it - but they still said no. So then i made an offer to "Buy it Now" with registered shipping - and luckily my persistence paid off!! Or else they just got tired of answering my questions :lol:

Very nice WWF Masterball! I'm still looking for one of those!

Can you give me additional informations?
Do you know the inventor?
Or the year it was produced?
Or the original price it was sold for?

Can you post some images of the puzzle outside the box?
One showing the puzzle in midturn?

All this would be of great help for the museum.

If I understand right , they are different sub-groups of the four by four rubik's cube, for example, the brilicube revenge equals to the edges and corners of the rubik's revenge. The slot left is the combination of the centers and the corners.

chuchudengren nailed it.

In the past I finished a series for the 3x3x3 with the same principle:
viewtopic.php?f=14&t=15541

This series could be extended if one considers the pieces of the core but there are way more empty slots in that case.

Not too sure how rare this puzzle is, but compared to how many people there are in the world for every one of these puzzles, I would say that it is rare enough. :D Unfortunately I was not invited (nor was I able to go) to IPP32, but I was still able to snag this beauty.

Image


Here's another picture with the Breadbox next to the custom Elemental Neon that I got from Dave a few years ago. If you don't own a puzzle that Dave has made, I highly suggest that you remedy this. :) The two puzzles that I have that he has made are of the highest quality, plus he was quite happy to provide a signature, which always makes a puzzle cooler.

Image

I haven't managed to solve the Breadbox yet (I've only spent 20 minutes or so on it) but I am quite pleased to be able to add it to my collection. Thanks Dave!

I love the breadbox puzzle! The first test took me about 10 mins but it was much harder to do the second challenge (all pieces including the crumb inside) that took me about 40 minutes. It is a great one to challenge friends with. I hope to get an Elemental from Dave sometime after the IPP.

On August 3rd, 2006 - i.e. six years ago - I wrote in this topic viewtopic.php?f=15&t=5098 about my interest for Mike Grimsley's Baby Face puzzle.
Today the postman brought me Mike's puzzle.
At last!

I really did intend to build one specifically for you Georges, It just didn't work out that way. Enjoy the original!

For thos of you who know me better you will know that I have owned some of these puzzles before. But since I have some sort of rare OCD (not really) I need a perfect copy of a puzzle before I am happy.
This is for example my 3rd Master Pyraminx and 3rd Master Pentultimate.
I am getting my 3rd Pentultimate as well. I think you know why :)
ps. I wont be getting any more copies of the puzzles in these pictures. I also think you know why that is.
Let me know if you want to see any of the puzzles in action.

I have just received this two puzzles:
They are 3 color "Vadász" kind of inside out puzzles.
The interesting, is that I have never seen any of these with promo stickers.

Do someone know their real name?

Andreas: I did not find them at the museum. If you need I can take more photos with white background.

And also received this one:
It is the Olympic Rings, sealed, never opened, with instructions.

Sorry, I haven't got any pictures of my own, but I just got a brand-new Pyrix in the mail! :D

It might be "new old stock", I'm not sure, as there are no dates on the package or enclosed leaflet. But it's in perfect condition. Though, of course, I didn't get it to display on the shelf in the packaging - I got it to solve! :lol:

Torito is selling them. (But they don't ship outside of Japan anymore...) They do not have the related Pyram or Pyrus.

Two amazing dodecahedrons are in my collection now.
These are Master Starminx by Eric Vergo (gingervergo) and
Helimate (Helicopter Pentultimate) by Greg (RubixFreakGreg).
Both puzzles are complex, but turn very well!
