Click a thumbnail to see its larger version and description.
The second batch of the Politechnika version from 1977.

The second batch of the Politechnika Magic Cube. It is one of 500,000 samples produced in 1977 at the Politechnika Toy Production Plant in Budapest.
This entry covers all version from that plant until January 1980 when it was renamed in Politoys.
Image 4 shows a slightly different version that was printed in a different facility.
Images 6 and 9 show the varieties of leaflets used with the variants.

These cubes have hollow pieces.
The first batch has an entry on its own.
Weight: 117 grams

The packages were produced with text in four different languages: Hungarian, english, french and german.
It is unclear whether there was a strict seperation of the packages between the batch. It is possible that packages and batches overlapped each other. Therefore the hungarian package appears on both entries.
The packages for the politoys-era have a separate entry.

A finnish version was also improvised by gluing a sticker onto the english text. This version is named "Rubikin Kuutio - Rubiks Kubpussel"
