    New core for old Rubik's brand?

    Thanks! As soon as I get a chance, I'll see what extra parts I have lying around and try to fix this cube. My next quandary is going to be trying to figure out what sides go where - I WAS one of those kids who just "took the stickers off" and obviously at some point the stickers on this one...

    New core for old Rubik's brand?

    Thanks! It's just the core, the center pieces are fine. I didn't have much time to look when she brought it to me this morning, but I did try to pop one center cap and it didn't come off. It looked like it could come off (there was a line around it that looked like a "cap"). I'll try a...

    New core for old Rubik's brand?

    Hi everyone, I need some advice. My mom recently found an old rubik's brand that I had when I was a kid. She knows I enjoy cubing now, so she brought it to me in a box of some other old toys, but when she pulled it out the core had broken! I'm wondering what kind of core to use to replace it...

    Greyscale color scheme?

    Hi! I was planning on making a few greyscale cubes and wanted some opinions. Apparently, there are two different "correct" ways to sticker them. You can either use the same color scheme as the Rubik's Icon, or you can do the true greyscale (which shades of grey coordinate to the original...

    Lock Up Help

    I don't see any extra plastic anywhere. The corners don't really fit tightly together - there are slight gaps between the pieces. But I've tried taking them apart and putting them together several times, and no matter how hard I push on them, the gaps are always there. I just don't know how...

    Lock Up Help

    What's wrong with my guhong? A few months ago, a friend and I both bought guhong POM diys. We put them together the same way (actually at the same time, sitting at the same table, etc.). His was great but mine is very clicky. It catches and locks up ALOT. I've done the edge mod where you...

    [Help Thread] "What cube should I get?" The Puzzle Choice Thread

    Thanks for the answers! Maybe I should have said that I don't plan to compete, so it doesn't matter if it's "illegal" like the stickerless. I'm just trying to get faster and I like trying out different cubes. Unfortunately I don't have the money to buy every one I want! So we're...

    [Help Thread] "What cube should I get?" The Puzzle Choice Thread

    Hi! New here and this is my very first post:) I have to say I agree with the mf8 tiled megaminx - I just got one and the first time I mixed it up, one of the tiles fell off. Disappointing, since I'd heard so many great things about it. And grommet, I'm so glad to hear somebody who...
