yes... what's wrong with the normal boxes :p

We box collectors strive to provide our cubes and shelves with the most enjoyable and subline appearance possible even if it means spending $20 on a box for our $20 4x4.

Lol. Its a clash between the collector and the speed cuber in me. I like to have my main's with me when I travel so I can practice, and I want to protect them with more than just a felt bag, yet I don't want to mess up the original packaging by bringing them with me. for 4x4 and 5x5 I currently have those flimsy, plastic boxes that the cubicle used to sell. They are the ones with the slot in the top because I think they were originally piggy banks. If they made boxes similar to their new 3x3 boxes with their logo on them I would buy them in a second. If only 4x4 and 5x5 had more set dimensions to make that practical.

I'm making this "club" so I can finally have a place to talk about my old cubes I've bought without putting them in other threads :) (I also made an account on twistypuzzles forum, but they seem to have this weird policy on "knockoff" puzzles like pretty much any chinese speedcube)

What cubes do you collect? I like to collect old Dayan and Alpha cubes, because those are the cubes I wanted when I started cubing (Mainly the Alpha V and the Guhong/Zhanchi), but I have stopped buying those because I have bought all the ones that I am interested in and are readily available. I also like buying 2x2s for some reason because they are all unique in feel (compare: little magic, valk2, xinghen, chuwen, wittwo, old dayan, they are all different feeling). I also like non-WCA puzzles that are simple in concept but not trivial, like cuboids, curvy copter, kilominx, master pyraminx, master skewb, etc. I want to get eventually a rex cube, helicopter cube, mosaic cube or equivalent, and maybe some constrained cubes (I find bandaging very frustrating though).
Hello, I want to join this group. I am also a collector. How can I join?

This seems like a cool thread! I have around 75-ish puzzles, most of which are speedcubes. :p

Basically, I divvy my puzzles up into a few distinct groups: NxNxN cubes, WCA non-cubes, "Other" (which is just for miscellaneous puzzles), and Memorabilia. NxNxN cubes is further broken up into 1x1, 2x2, 3x3, 4x4, 5x5, 6x6, 7x7, 8x8, and 9x9, and WCA non-cubes is divided up into Pyraminx, Skewb, Megaminx, Clock, and Square-1. Then "other" is made up of 3x3 shape mods, picture cubes, tiny 3x3s, and any non-cubes that aren't WCA-legal, like the Face-Turning Octahedron, along with my cuboids/fidget cubes. Memorabilia is anything else, like a cubing shirt or some cufflinks or a tissue box.

(Alternatively, I suppose I could order them chronologically, but where's the fun in that?)

**One thing to note is that there are 6 puzzles that my parents confiscated for no apparent reason on February 1st, 2018 that they still have not given back, despite several repeated efforts on my part to get them back, to no avail. My parents deny the fact that they have not returned my puzzles, even when I show them convincing evidence to the contrary. I hope to have them back someday, but also acknowledge the fact that that day is most likely not coming anytime soon.
:cool:The biggest NxNxN puzzle I own.

Sorry if that was a bit much; remembering them all and putting them into one post took me about 2 hours, but that should be it!

I like all the “memorabilia” items you have. I only have 1 cube related t-shirt and it doesn’t fit very well anymore.

I guess I could post in this thread, seeing as I've (sort of unintentionally) amassed a bit of a collection. I've been cubing on and off over the past 15 years or so, and gathered a weird mix of puzzles in the process. Usually because I'll take a break from cubing for a year or so then when I come back there's loads of new hardware that's way better than what I was using in the past.
It's not the best photo - I couldn't find an angle that showed everything so there's a lot of cubes hidden behind other larger cubes and such. If anyone's actually interested I could take some better photos or try to dig out info like the brands of certain puzzles.

The image doesn't include the WCA puzzles that I actually use for speedsolving, they're kept somewhere else since I use them practically every day.

Does anyone have a full list of the official Rubik's themed 3x3's? The type included in the similar packaging shown below (aka not including ones included in hex packaging like the Disney theme parks versions) Thanks!

I found some for Harry Potter, Lilo & Stitch, Night Before Christmas, and Kingdom of Heats. Not sure if there are other ones, but those are the ones I found

Thank you for looking! I got a bit of free time tonight so I put together a collage of what I am hoping is the complete set. If anyone knows of others, please let me know.
