They announced on their Facebook page that they'd release a new cube this month. I did find it odd that it was leaked to a site like amazon before being officially announced. I still believe it could be the 3x3 that has been produced. It's cheaper than a big cube to produce and after a 3x3 all they need is a 4x4 to be the first company to have a 2-7 series (I think)

$19 V-cube

$7 home made fake V-cube
Yes it won't help my speed solves, but it will be another addition to my v-cube collection. If I made a fake V-cube at home I would always be reminded that it was fake xD ! I just want to have a (as complete as possible) full collection of v-cubes :p

It's not a big cube like most of us are demanding, but it's a cube release nonetheless. I'm really just curious on what the mechanisms looks like and how it compares to popular Dayan cubes. I might consider buying it if it can actually hold a candle to Dayans.

Meh. If that's what they want to do, so be it. They'll go bankrupt if they make one mistake...

Besides, we already have really awesome cubes. I kinda have a feeling that this is gonna suck. If it doesn't, so be it.

Also, ew pillowed :3
bankrupted because of what? Speedcubers only make up a small part of their market.

Not what I was expecting, but still, its a new V-cube. The only thing is, making it pillowed basically stops most speedcubers from buying it, and considering average peopole would go with a Rubik's brand 3x3, they could have made a better decision IMO. ALthough, being a 3x3, it's a nice surprise.

Although I do hope this is just a hoax, I wouldn't be surprised if it's for real.
Mefferts put their badge on the "Feliks" cube right? As a retail-store cube, this thing would distinguish itself from the Rubiks brand cubes nicely due to the form factor. Quite clever actually.

Ok so I haven't been on this site that long as a member. But Tony did a hoax about the 9x9 he made out of mini 3x3. This so called V-cube 3 isn't for sale on his american site only the German site. Also nothing on the V-cube site about them ever making a pillowed 3x3. Nothing on the V-cube site about the new release in the News Section. I'd imagine there would be something on the home page too. So I am going with a Pillowed White QJ probably with a V cut out of the sticker.

Making a hoax where I ask for money would be called fraud (thanks!). Making a hoax like this would also warrant legal action by V-Cubes. I agree it is strange that it suddenly appeared on Amazon though now I think it has been removed from the official Amazon.de site. This means on my site it has automatically changed to unavailable.
It was being sold by 'Verdes Innovations' who sells a lot of V-Cubes on the German Amazon.de so the company is certainly legit and has the same name as the one we all know. I suspect they were supposed to wait until an official announcement was made before offering the puzzle.
I predict it will be available everywhere in February.

Assuming that they didn't put it up on amazon intentionally, they're probably making a cubic one as well. The pillowed one just happened to be the only one that was leaked.

I can't imagine that they won't release a cubic version as well.
I'm looking forward to seeing reviews on it but I doubt it will compare to the Dayans because it is their 1st attempt.
Dayan are constantly releasing new cubes and trying to improve the designs yet V still haven't released adjustable 5-7.
