the wrm 2020 has had a few image leaks.

they're going for a large single-base style internal mechanism this time around; the mech is on the box.

It seems like a mix between the Tengyun and GTS2. I'm very curious about the mech though. I wasn't expecting it to change as much from the WRm since the RS3 2020 was still very similar to the original RS3.

On a side note, has anyone here tried the RS3 2020? From what I have heard its fantastic OOTB aside from magnet strength, but I'm very glad that TC is selling extra magnets for the RS3 2020. I'm probably gonna pick up 2 sets of those, one for the RS3 2020, and one to add to my WRm since the magnets aren't strong enough.

The RS3M 2020 is pretty nice, feels completely different to the original RS3M, slightly too fast out of the box and the magnets are pretty weak (probably more due to the plastic being thicker since I reckon they are the same size and strength as the meilong M). At speedcubing.org we are just sending 24 tiny magnets with every RS3M 2020 ordered for now.

As for the shengshou MrM megaminx I have no expectations, I did a solve on their 6x6 and 7x7 today and got twice my average on both, I then did a solve on the old shengshou 7x7 from like 2012 and got a much better time (like 1.4x my average) so I really wouldn't recommend the shengshou MrM big cubes at all

It actually reminds me far more of a ShuangRen than the Tengyun. I do suspect that the cube might have corner-screw issues if the corner feet aren’t extremely rounded, however.


Mech aside, I’m not too sure how much I like the naming convention, since it makes it so much easier to date the cube. the name definitely isn’t timeless, which won’t be quite good when it becomes 2021 or 2022, when it is quite clearly in the name that it isn’t “modern hardware”. That said, it could be good for marketing later releases, but it effectively can cannibalize sales for these models after 2020.

I’m not sure if this was either a clever or a -for lack of a better word- stupid decision.

I don't think that people in the community (aside from GAN fanboys) would care all that much about when a cube came out. It's not like Cars or stuff like that where the newer model is instantly better for everyone, I for one still use the Valk M as a main even though its 4 years old. As long as the cubes are good compared to other puzzles for a long time, people will use them (aside from GAN fanboys)

TheCubicle released extra magnets for the RS3 M 2020, and made premium versions of it with these extra magnets. With the extra magnets in the cube, they're calling it the RS3 M 2020+.

Yes, you just need some tiny magnets to make it a bit stronger, at speedcubing.org we are just giving away 24 of the tiny magnets with every RS3M 2020 ordered incase people want to use them at the moment.

PiCubeShop has posted a pic of the Shengshou magnetic clocks, says they'll be out soon:

IT'S FINALLY HAPPENING I CANNOT BELIEVE IT!!!!

The decals on them look good, and with current regs, I think that they are legal. Hopefully, the springs don't have the same problem that some Lingaos do where the springs are too lock and catch on the gears, and it causes gears to snap back wierdly. The screws also make me excited so it will be easy to modify/lubricate the puzzle. I honestly am so surprised that shengshou of all companies were the first to make a good clock, especially since Moyu hasn't delivered on their SenHuan clock that was teased 4 years ago.

We don’t know if they are good yet and I don’t think we should get to excited about a clock yet
