The era in which we are talking about using these alternative lubes could have very well been before you were born. No rant needed.

Unfortunately my moyu 15x15 is in pieces right now so it's not visible but this is my current cube display. My oold school cubes are at the top of my main shelf and on this secondary shelf with things i don't solve anymore, old shengshou puzzles, Eastsheen 2x2 (it should be displayed with the purple side out!), my V-Cube 7, etc.

Apparently, though I don't think it was sold widely because I've never heard of anyone owning one outside of that video. Anyway when I started cubing, I think V cubes were already better (?) Then Shengshou made big cubes and there was the Wittwo and Eastsheen was long gone.

Do you think it's worth doing an unboxing video for every puzzle I get? I feel like I appreciate a puzzle more and get more out of it if I dedicate a video to it, if that makes sense.

sometimes you find really bizarre things on ebay

Want to buy a dayan 2x2 for 30 thousand dollars?

Also some kind of white Japanese blind cube
I would get it just to see what it is if it wasn't $50

Free shipping though, it’s a steal.

The fuzzy textured one seems kinda cool. It would be fun to solve blindfolded like the YJ blindfolded textured cube...but yes the price is pretty excessive.

I can kinda excuse the price because it is being shipped internationally.

I could make my own trashy one with fabrics from Jo-Ann that might be fun and better than the YJ cube

I would consider myself a collector - in my personal collection I have ~230 cubes. I don’t really collect old puzzles but I love collecting budget - middle range cubes, especially 3x3s, and non wca. I have about 60-70 3x3 cubes, most of them are just middle range cubes that I love to collect and compare. As of now I have my eye on a tuttminx as they are getting rare

Edit: I am very proud of my display and organization of cubes, I will post a photo when I get home

Sorry for the double post! I got home and took some photos:




I have 228 cubes, 26 screwdrivers, 4 timers (QJ, QiYi, YJ, Speerstacks), 37 stands, 25 bottles of lube, 26 free spinners from the cubicle, 2 Rubik’s cube ottomans, a speed stacks display, the Gan robot, and 4 cube related poster-type things
Wait... That's the same cube seat Z3Cubing has!

How long have you been working on the 17x17?

I found one at a garage sale and later a relative found one and gave it to me as well, so I have two of them now lol. Every face is the same so there are 6 blue centers and several red-red edges

I have done 4 solves on it and I took a break in the middle of my fifth when a piece broke, I got the replacement part and am going to finish it soon. Hoping for sub-5 hour time

I wouldn't consider myself a huge cube collector seeing as I only have around 40 cubes, but I do think my wca/non-wca cube ratio is more similar to that of a collector. Two of my coolest cubes though, are just random things that family members had lying around. They are an original Meffert's pyra and what I think is a Hungarian Supernova megaminx. Also not trying to self promo but my most recent yt video is a showcase of all of my cubes.
