Wait since when can you get a B/W R/Y B/G stickerless cube?

Also, if I get a custom color scheme, I'd probably do yours except blue/orange.
You can’t directly. And not all cubes are built where it’s possible but a lot cubes make the black cubes with stickerless construction so I buy a black and stickerless and use parts of both.

I am currently in the process of making all of my side event mains have black on them. My Square-1 scheme is black on top white on bottom RGOB going counterclockwise. My Megaminx has black instead of white with everything the same. I'm thinking about getting a black aoyan and a black bell so I can switch out the yellow for black on those as well since the only reason I compete in skweeb and pyra is to make fun of them and also to keep PR streaks alive. But my nxn cubes are all the standard scheme although I would like to try out purple instead of orange even though all my mains are stickerless.
I did that with the bell and it looks awesome
My mega also has a black side, and if i get enough money (very unlikely) i may consider getting a black wingy to switch out (idrc tho)

Oh, makes sense. I feel that that's more work than it's worth.

Sorry, bro,



it was just a prank



On a serious note, do you prefer a different scheme from normal on side events, specifically for square-1 are you white on top, black on top, or yellow on top?
It's cool, I just get tired of making posts or entering discussions with the intent of keeping it at a high level and have meaningful discussions only for it to get derailed.

For Squan, I use a really weird scheme. White top, black bottom, red front, yellow back, green left, blue right.

Isn't that identical to your 3x3 color scheme?
Do you also customize your car's interior to be backward?
There's an old car that has a front/back symmetrical design and the entire front and back open like a door.

Yes it's the same colors, but the placement of them is kinda weird when you compare the placement of colors on a normal squan.

My Megaminx color scheme has yellow opposite white, tan in place of yellow and grey in the place of tan. I did it coz white is opposite to yellow on 3x3 and it was my last layer color (before I became CN though).

This is really interesting, I had this exact idea for a color scheme independently a few days ago, and even contacted The Cubicle about getting a single side of black pieces for a few different cubes. I'd add that if you do white or black cross on that color scheme then pll recognition looks really cool too. Personally, I also love the white and yellow edge.

I got 6 stickerless MS cubes and one black for the purpose of trying out black opposite white, for the high contrast reasons you mentioned. I probably won't do that to all of my cubic mains because of the price tag, but we'll see.

My journey to the dark side is now complete. I even made a force cube from the yellow pieces so that nothing was wasted!
