Hey, so for the debate I made another thread on this, so this can be moved there.

It's a handmade product, so of course it would be worth money, even if they were more common.

They probably only made a few of the first "batch." I bet that they will make a lot more the next time around.
They did 20. They have 90 more coming.

Chris mentioned it in his videos.
It still amazes me how fast they sold out. Last time something on their website sold out that fast was the first cube box they released, and only 50 were made... and it was priced at a point where nobody could legitimately say "I cant afford one"

$8,250 gross, not net. As somebody running a business myself that kind of money disappears terrifyingly quickly. According to https://www.manta.com/c/mbynx0j/cubicle-us (can’t get the link to work, and it’s a pretty rough estimate anyway) TheCubicle’s annual revenue is about$1.1 million (which seems low to me, unless it’s net rather than gross). Either way $8,250 represents about 2.7 days worth of revenue. #### Competition Cuber ##### Member$8,250 gross, not net.

Just curious, do cubicle employees earn enough to make it their full-time job?

I would assume so, it’s definitely more than a hobby at this point. I believe that Phil Yu has stated that he considers that he takes home a comfortable salary. I wouldn’t imagine his employees make as much as he does, but I would imagine they get paid a living wage.

New super-budget 3x3 from ShengShou.

It's called the Legend S and it appears to be very hollow...

This reminds me of the alpha chun-2 so much! do you have a link to where you found this? I might need to get one to have that light as air feeling in my collection once more!

Thing is, I'm pretty sure that TC has a decent amount of full-time employees, plus taxes, building expenses, etc.

It’s not like a lot of full-time employees are the reason for building expenses. The Cubicle only takes on more employees because they can. They wouldn’t if they couldn’t, and they would make their business model smaller as a result.
