Keep in mind that the impostor has changed their web site since their debut. The original site was absolutely identical to the SCS site at the time. All four of the reasons I started are correct.
When someone calls you out, the correct course of action is to check your facts, not to immediately double down. Of course you can double down if you really are right, but you're not and here's why:

This is what the impostor SCS site looked like. Compare with the real SCS, before their recent redesign. These are "absolutely identical"? They're similar, sure, but so are typical Shopify stores. Both SCS and the impostor use Shopify. They look similar. Conspiracy, or just a consequence of the fact that they both use Shopify? If anything, I'd say their layout is closer to The Cubicle's current website (also Shopify!) than to SCS's.

"Absolutely identical" is possibly overstating a bit. Basically identical is more like it. Are they similar to a standard shopify store? Dunno. But....based on the fact that they copied the store name, the URL, and tried to hide their location ANNNNND their layout/look very strongly resembled SCS, it's obvious they were copying SCS not just using some default layout they happened to select. C'mon.

Scam site, known to have ripped people off, with lots of shady tactics. C'mon.

Lefun Ghost Pyraminx, but actually a Ghost Skewb in the shape of a tetrahedron. Notice the presence of the other 4 corners (which don't exist on a regular pyraminx). Ghost Jing's Pyraminx then, if one is to be pedantic.

I hope this functions well; the FangCun Ghost Skewb (Tony Fisher's Golden Cube) didn't have torpedoes on the skewb centers and it popped literally on every solve, which is a lot of headache for a ghost skewb with all the orientation problems.


Also, to whom it may concern, the cube in the post quoted below turned out to be a LimCube Mini 6x6 indeed. 54.6 mm! I believe they have an old 3x3 and 2x2 at exactly this size.

Currently available at HKNowStore, soon at other stores too, I guess. Seems to be made only in stickerless, which honestly kind of sucks. I was hoping for a black-with-stickers to complete a certain sub-collection. Does anyone have experience with dying stickerless plastic into black? Will it be consistent, or am I better off obtaining a force cube (i.e. fully white) and dying that one?

Does the Ghost Jing's Pyraminx turn well?

Tymon is obviously a very good cuber, but he doesn't have a 7x7x7 average and his PB single is nearly 7 minutes. So I'm not sure how much value we should put on his opinion of a 7x7x7 cube.
He has recently started practising 7x7, you van see some solves on his channel, he's improving very well

So tiny!
Man, I feel like QiYi is stalling and straight up forgot how to make a new decent 3x3 anymore.

We're never getting the Elite, are we?

For this thread and this thread alone, please don't quote a full post if it has an Instagram or YouTube embed. Those are very slow to load because Facebook and Google are terrible at making fast websites.

Another look at the Thunderclap V3. According to SCS, it looks like the V3M will be somewhere in the $10 range.

(Edit: Grammar :p)
