imo cubes shouldnt be as expensive as buying a big cabinet (im looking at you gan)
or 4 gallons of juice (sorry couldnt think of anything) (im looking at you, rubiks speed)

ur serious right
You are right, but they probably just put that price due to the material used, or maybe they just want money.

Nobody has to buy a GAN flagship cube. There are lots of budget-priced cubes that are far better values. However, if there's a market out there for $70 3x3 cubes, then I see no reason why someone (e.g., GAN) shouldn't cater to that market.

Well said. Even after buying one GAN flagship, you're not inclined to go out and buy their next one. Havent seen a stickered 11M Pro in action yet. Wonder how they compare, as well as why feliks was given a stickerless.

I've noticed that a number of new cubes this year only came out in stickerless form. I wonder if the manufacturers are seeing a deep drop in sales of stickered cubes right now, and so are concentrating production on stickerless.

no they want money, normal rubiks cubes are trash and are easy to make, just a bunch of plastic and stickers, and they put all that for 30 dollars.
RUBIKS IS STEAL THE MONET
The normal Rubik's Cube is $10 at their website.

I main the Gan XS and probably won't be buying a gan cube in like, forever. I'm a bit confused too about Feliks getting a stickerless cube.

At one point in time, Rubik's had a patent on the mechanism, so they could sell it for whatever he wanted and other companies did not have the legal right to use his mechanism. Now the patent has expired so presumably any company can use the mechanism. I think V-Cube's patents are still in effect.

The new YLM M is pretty good, I love that it has glossy plastic instead of frosted. I prefer the RS3M 2020 over it but I can still get great times on the YLM M-- I got a 6.5 with NB perm...

I also have the Qiyi clock and MGC 7, both are great. I always thought my shengshou was great but it feels like a piece of garbage compared to my Qiyi. The MGC 7 is pretty good, the outer layer magnets seem a little too strong but it isn't too big of a deal.

I also bought the Xinghen TSM 2x2 and the Gan Pyra (not sure what version but it was the more expensive one) I will let you know what I think of them.

Also, my camera broke so I won't be filming unboxings/reviews for my channel for a little while. To be honest it did not film well so I will make sure I do more research to ensure my new camera will film well.

I've also gotten the QiYi clock. I only have about 150 solves on it, but I've already broken all of my clock PBs (I average sub-10)! It turns so smoothly and feels amazing. It's a bit uncontrollable, but I'm getting used to how it turns.

Ain't that the truth for all puzzles

idk why you don't just use your phone to film. if you have a relatively recent phone then the quality should be much better than your current quality.

You can add magnets to the cross gears (2x1mm) to help make it more controllable.
