You're wrong. I'd be more than willing to pay $30 for my Type A DIY.

EDIT: Oh man life it tough on teh intarwebz hey? You have to prove yourself to random people on youtube to stay alive...

Maybe you're willing to pay that for it, but actually they're sold evrywhere around the net for as little as $6.

i think by new type 1 he means the ones with the new anti-pop mechanism which are harder to find and sold for more...
Maybe its a matter of assembly but I don't really like but but i have heard of people who have.
So i'll say no for me.

What is the definition of somethings worth? It is what someone is willing to pay for it. I'm not willing to pay $90M for a Van Gogh, but someone is, so that means it's worth it, by definition. The difference you're arguing with the cubes is that they're worth $30 to someone, just not to you.

I think the wisest post in this thread is from Dae_Ja_Voo. Why do you feel the need to prove something to a stranger?

Wouldn't that be because of inflation? I'm not too sure about it but maybe in other countries, the cubes cost more because their dollar is worth more? So maybe Americans would think $20 for a cube is expensive (which it is) but when those people compare it to their dollar, it's actually cheap. I think this MIGHT be the reason, and I hope I said it right.

I'm not quite sure what you meant, but the reason things are so expensive here is because we have to import them.

stiff (I mean really really stiff, 1 tps at best using lots of force), non-rubik, springless cubes are all you can find in China, they are sold by street vendors for 2-3 yuan ($0.25). I searched everywhere and cannot find a Rubik, DIY, or anything else. Many of the cubes have numbers, or pictures of cartoon animals. They suck, but are cheap to use to mod into a siamese cube.:) I had like 5, but did not take them back to US.

So hang on, does he mean 6 Yen?? You realise that is worth something like 1 cent?

Exactly. Who gives a crap what he thinks. My girlfriend thinks it's silly that i sit and cube until 3am in the mornings, but i think it's cool. The fact that she thinks it's silly isn't going to stop me. Similarly, if someone thinks it's silly that i paid $12 for my DIY, i really couldn't care less. It's my cash, my cube.
