It opened before you posted this :) and most people know where it is, but I'm celebrating. I really wanted a Rubik's DIY but then the darn store closed.

Of course it opened before I posted this - otherwise I would not have known it had opened.

Ok I was just joking, and you're saying it opened a few days ago. Well I don't check it often, and I didn't see anyone post it here, so I made a thread about it so.... yeah

I used to hear that the japanese speedcubing kit is basically the new mold of Rubik's DIY, and that they will be selling them after the current stock is sold out.

I would get one from Cube4You, but I have had a bad experience with them. Then again, Intl shipping in the Rubik's Store is 20 bucks. Anyway, that Japanese speedcubing set, it just looks like a store bought with screws instead of rivets.

They already do, I ordered three of them.

1st one I trew up the stairs and all the pieces popped out, two pieces are still on the stairs after a month.

2nd one I let drunk people play with it in the disco and it dropped and popped a million times and then I also trew it up the stairs, but it fell from the stairs. <-- I am sure the screw aren't that straight anymore. :p

3rd one well I took the screws, springs and then kernel and just used my old 2006 DIY blocks and now it ''OK''.

I don't like the new mold cubes, they are loose, but they cannot cut corners and they keep popping and it´s the same story for the Japanese Speedcubing-kit only there you are certain that the screws are screwed in straight into the kernel.

I won some DIYs at C3 a week ago, and those certainly were the same old mold. Do you think that if I order one now, I'll get a new mold one Rama? They all shipped from Canada, right? So if you ordered from Europe you'll get the same thing as if I ordered it from Canada? I just wanted to make sure lol
