There are alot of crazy variants in 3x3, tetrahedron, pentahedron and megaminx. I'm glad that pluto isn't anymore considered as a planet. :D I don't want to buy all the variants. My question is, if I buy any crazy puzzle, can I mod it to a regular crazy puzzle. What I mean is all circles are fixed. Thanks :D

Yes. You just need two crazy cubes with 6 of each center. Superantoniovivaldi has a youtube video on it. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PODqkqOHhyM

For the Pentahedrons you can buy one and turn around an internal part to get any combination.

For the cubes you need to buy two. Same goes for the planet Megaminxes. I don't know about the tetrahedra.

Can't I just super glue the center pieces? :(

You'd need to sand the center pieces as well. Also, on the pentahedra the top and bottom (triangular) faces aren't flippable I think.

I strongly recommend trying the other variants (instead of just a boring circle cube/minx/tet/pent) as well. The crazy 3x3s are very fun, and Jupiter & Uranus aren't that hard.
