These are some pics of my BRAND NEW QJ PYRAMINX!!:mad: I got it for my birthday 6 days ago, and I picked it up just now, dropped it on my tiled floor, and it split into three separate pieces. I'm so pissed 'cause this thing was freakin' awesome:mad: Based on the pics, does anyone know how I could fix it (i.e. super glue, etc.)? Or would I have to buy a new one?:confused:

I had exactly the same problem, but I got a totally new pyraminx beacuse the shop did not sell parts. So now I have a lot of pieces if something would happen!:)


It is really hard to fix with super glue:(

Lol, I too discovered that QJ is not what some would call "quality". It pops and locks a lot. But I haven't had the unfortunate pleasure of it not being fixable, just by popping the pieces back into place.

Super glue <3 You guys have no idea how much superglue I'm using to hold the pieces together on my pyraminx, and I have only superglued it the places where the stickers doesn't hold it together :D (but I'm not using that one anymore though) Maybe you should just go for a new one?

If I broke 2 pyraminxes!?!? noway dude.

Karina broke one of mine and my main pyra was broken beforehand. (if you thought it was messed up at wc, you should seriously see it now.)

EDIT:
I can count 10 place where it's glued together, and it still looks like this

for OP, this pyra still works! :D

That's what I was afraid of. I might try to contact iCubeMart and see if they can give me a new one. They might not be very forgiving, considering the circumstances.

May I be able to fix it for you?
