These are really elven quid? O_o

Doesn't really seem like a bargain, just seems about right.
#2
I have aload of these in the loft in a box :-D
#3
I can complete Rubik's Cubes :)
#4
Could never do this the first time round but will buy a few for Christmas, cheers OP heat added.
#5
I`ve still got mine in its case with the instuctions...from 1980 and its never been completed :oops:

#6
This is the sort of deal I like being posted.

Thanks
#7
£5 seems awfully expensive for some blocks of plastic with sticky labels on them...

I would've thought you could pick these up off EBay for 39p delivered from HK by now.

I broke sub 40 seconds the other day.

Not great but i was damn pleased.

With regards to the price. £5 is pretty average but I paid a little bit more for my first rubik's cube. These'd make a great stocking filler although anyone who's trying to solve Rubik's cubes with speed should probably get a custom made cube or an Eastern sheen type.

That's brilliant!

On these new ones can you still still break it down into kit form and then
push the all blocks back into their correct place?

You can yes.

Why?


Eastern Sheen cubes are built completely differently. They have a much smoother feel and don't look up as often which means you can solve them faster.

Custom cubes are usually lubed to perfection and even faster still.
#13
Just ordered one, thanks.
Not sure about breaking your 40s record though, I'll be pleased just to complete it :whistling:

Thanks for this, does anyone have a link to where you can buy one of these two above types?

Yeah, people who actually care enough to get their speed solves faster will do anything to make it easier.

Unfortunately, it's very difficult to get these in the UK cheaply and easily. My friend actually ordered me a custom cube from America and I'll be getting it in two weeks when I see him for christmas.

The East sheen cubes can be bought off eBay and their prices vary (they come from China).

I got a 4x4x4 and a 5x5x5 east sheen cubes from China (through eBay) for about £20.

Can you peel the stickers off these? For old time's sake?

Yeah, I got a cheapo version of one from the Factory Shop around here (don't know if it's nationwide - there are several in North Wales/Cheshire area) for £1

I'm sure these feel better, but it still works the same way, unless you're after these stupidly fast times - I've never finished it!
#20
If it is a cheap copy then no good. I can also do the cube and used to get paid to do other people's cubes at school nearly 30 years ago !

Crap cubes just break up when you are doing them.

I used to get asked to do them to in 1982 (I was 14). There was so much difference between a genuine one and a copy and you're so right that the crap ones would just fall apart and break up. I'd love to know if these new 'original' ones are as well made as the the eighties ones.
#23
I saw these in Asda and Tesco for 9.99 so £5 is great for a new cube.

My brother was in the Rubik Cube World Championship when it was held in the West Midlands in the early eighties. He was interviewed on the Radio and TV. Unfortunately he couldn't beat the 17 seconds that he originally the solved the cube in in qualification. He was my hero and impressed all my school friends!
#24
Been waiting for the price to come down on these again :thumbsup:

Gonna get one for my son, though it will probably drive him crazy :viking:

same here, in fact i was the 1st kid in my school to get one, never completed it though :thinking:
#26
I can do it in about 90 seconds. Trying to get it to less than a minute
#27
Just peel the stickers off and re-attach them in the correct place.:thumbsup:
#28
My husband has just worked out how to do the cube, and currently does it in about 4 mins (given he's only been trying for 4 days and has a scneidy Poundland cube that keeps sticking!), so I'll get him one of these for sure. They definitely were £10+ when I looked last week - thanks!
#29
we had these back in the day..never could do them then, prob have no chance of completing one now!

£5? corr, they've gone up in price ey..
#30
Cheers - have had this is my amazon basket ever since my son picked one up in the dentist's surgery! Good stocking filler and cheapest I've seen the original one.
#31
Heat and rep added, never seen a genuine one this cheap.
#32
I could never do these but i was good at the rubiks magic, anyone remember them?

So whats the secret to doing these?
#33
These are worth every penny, hours of fun!
We both do the cube and the teenage daughter can do it now too. We race each other, usually takes around the 1 minute mark when averaging the time, although I have done it in around 30 seconds - meaningless though as it really can depend on who mixed it, not for how long they have mixed it up for but how well they have turned the corners! We use the hand timer from the Speed Stacking set for anyone serious about timing out there! However, what is more impressive than anyone completing the cube is that my 3 year old can complete one side, its awesome!
We have our originals from the 80's and a couple of these new versions. The new version ones aren't all the same though, even when bought from the same place at the same time would you believe! I actually prefer these newer ones, as my older original one is too smooth now and corners pop quite easily.
Thanks OP, couldn't resist buying just one more cube at this price, bargain! :thumbsup:
#34
My wife can do it and she says the proper ones are defo better than the cheap copies, nice price!:thumbsup:
#35
These are aright tbh.. If you know how to lube it then it will be good.. I can do it in 23 seconds :)

Hope they've improved the quality of these. Bought a genuine Rubik's cube from a high street retailer couple of years ago and the colored stickers were peeling off in no time, quite poor.
#37
These are definitely worth it.. If you buy silicone spray and spray it inside then it will be very fast.. I have a white one heres a video of me doing it in 23 secs..

I've only been able to complete 4 sides :'(

Thanks OP!

Just ordered !!:thumbsup:

I have a feeling.... when you get older... you won't be bragging about doing it in 23 seconds :whistling:
