1 year after the first photos of the prototype, Shengshou Examinx is finally released! Stickerless only. Force cubes, anyone? :D



Currently available at ChampionsCubeStore (the actual website) for $380, and also at his AliExpress store for $330. He is legit, but I wouldn't buy from him right now, there will soon be deals that are either cheaper (other Chinese stores) or physically closer to you (international shipping during the pandemic is a pain). Considering his prices for other products, I imagine that it will be sold in Western retail (TC/SCS/etc) for $400-450, and at Cubezz for $300-350 or so. Overall, for any store, it should be a bit cheaper than Shengshou 17x17 in that same store, but not by much.

Is that larger than the Petaminx?

Do you mean the number of layers? Yes, petaminx is 9 pieces along an edge, and this examinx is 11. This is currently the highest order mass-produced minx.

Or larger physically? Champion's store doesn't list dimensions, yet. Common sense says "yes", but Shengshou has a 13x13 (cube) that is larger than their 11x11, 12x12, 14x14, 15x15 and 17x17. They don't know "common sense". :) This examinx already breaks the pattern of their black-with-stickers minxes.

Bro that would be almost $4,000 worth of examinxes
Almost $4,000 worth of Examinxes, plus 7,200 magnets at, we'll say $0.08 each, plus probably $20 worth of superglue, materials are $4,424. I think it was @Doctor Hedron who said on Reddit that force Examinxes would take about 39 hours, probably 2-3 times as long if you're going to magnetize as well. 100 hours of labor at $15/hour, and roughly speaking you're looking at $6,000.

I'm not into the force cube stuff, but I would be interested to see what kind of magnets would fit. I really just want a gigaminx, though.
