    Surprisingly,Though it is released in Japan, it is not Japan color pattern but world color pattern.
    I guess, many Japanese cuber use world color pattern cube now.:)

    Interesting, I was expecting more of a Dayan copy with torpedoes.

    Yeah, corner cutting is overrated anyway.

    That 2x2 core looks like the lanlan core that is used on the 4x4.

    Does it have removable caps so one can tension the cube? (yes you can even slightly tension the 4x4 lanlan ball core).

    So this early this year we get the PanShi, we get a v-cube 4 that may or may not be good, and umm... we get this. Interesting times.

    Made far more interesting by the legal instruments the old guard has crafted to protect themselves. Hope they don't use those but instead get it in gear to have an actual innovation war.

    Oh wow, interesting mechanism. The detachable sunken tiles/stickers is especially new, and I don't think I've seen a 3x3 ball core like that before (although I could be wrong). I doubt it'll take over the speedcubing world but it would be awesome if they improved the turning quality of the official cubes. (And here's hoping they put a bit of lube in at the factory ;) )

    The made it easier for people who can't solve it, now they don't have to pull the stickers of, they just can do the caps on and off.

    interesting looking... I'll probably wait until some people review it before I buy it. I think that'd be cool if Rubik's actually had a good speedcube, comparable to a dayan

    that's most likely not going to happen.
     
  17. Agreed and not like the walmart cubes where its like 1 out of 50 that are good finger trickable right out of the box.
