 Post subject: Would anyone be interested in buying my Evil Twin?

It was made from four Junior Rubik's cubes. I will put tiles on it if someone is going to buy it. The cubies that were glued on are not filled in, but I can fill them in if that is needed.

In the pictures, the Evil Twin is on the left, and is slightly bigger than the normal 3x3.


Also, I'm sorry about the quality of pictures. My camera is only 1.3 megapixels.

This should be in the marketplace, but since it isn't, I would love any comments or suggestions about making this better. I guess I'll just wait for this topic to die before I post again in the right place.

Actually, I think it does look great! But you should fill the parts, sand it, and paint it so it will look very nice.

Thanks. I would definately clean it up if someone wanted it. But now i guess I'll try to fill in the other cubies. It was also my first mod.

I love it as it is now. I would definitely be interested in buying this. I don't care if the cubies are not filled. I kind of like to look of them empty. how did you make the fused core? Do you have pictures. I would think putty would get in the way of the cuts. How much would you sell this for (or would you just auction it?)

It's not reall a fused core. All you do is cut 2 corners, 1 each on 2 2x2s, and put them together, like you do on a Siamese 3x3.

Here's a picture of the core. It's a little bit hard to get both cubes sanded to make a regular cubie, but this one came about a millimeter off.

I'm gonna make a newer one soon, but I think it will be out of a keychain one.

Now this topic is beginning to be in the right place.

Can you please make a video of the puzzle to show us some of the shapes it can make and how well it turns? :D :D

How much would you sell it for, I may be interested depending on the price?

Well. I have a video of me solving it in around 2 minutes, but I can't do anything else because I'm going to be filling the sides. Then I'll have some fine sanding and painting.

Here is a link to the video on Youtube.

And as for the price, it is still undecided until the final product is done.

Wait so did you cut the 2 pieces on the 2x2 in half? And then put them together?

He cut the core pieces and glued them together, I believe.

Yes. The pieces that screw into the core were both diagonally cut.

how do you disassemble 2x2x2's. i know how to take apart the old rubik's ones, but i tried that method on a new one and broke it.

Actually, I just started filling them in. And I'm assuming that "brown" is a reference to UPS, right?
