The K'un limited edition sold out quickly so I expect these to sell too. Obviously these are targeted at collectors and not regular cubers.

If I was going to spend $100 on puzzles this ridiculously overpriced 3x3 is in the bottom of my list. There are so many other puzzles I’d rather have than this GAN at the $100 price point.

I’ve shelled out some serious cash for cubes in the past, moyu 13 & 15, crazy non-wca stuff, big V-cubes back in the late 200s but never ever will I spend $100 on a 3x3…or support gan in what feels like almost predatory marketing and pricing schemes.

oh I see, I thought it was walmart in-stores, which would've been pretty exciting (I think Rubik's speed cube collab with GAN is in stores? I haven't physically bought a toy from a store in ages)

As a grown up "granny" cuber at the age of 35 I COULD spend that much on a cube. But I certainly won't...

I currently main a GAN 356 M Lite which is an awesome cube. But even the 11 M pro is too expensive for my taste.

I actually just ordered a WRM2021 Maglev as potential new main alongside the GAN Megaminx. If you think about the Megaminx being half the price for more than double the pieces also being super premium. Those new 3x3 prices are really outrageous. I won't pay that much.

And if I'm not too happy with the WRM I will just get another 356 M as replacement just im case.
Oof you should have gotten the Dayan v2 mega

Actually I do not think limited edition cubes are overpriced. They are designed for collectors who will pay for fancy colors and although I'm not buying this one I am a sucker for transparent plastic (including the transparent moyu cubes from a few years ago, even going back to my rubiks ice cube as one of my very first puzzles)

I agree with the relationship between scarcity and pricing but have a hard time seeing how $100 is justified. Then again $100 to me is not what it is to everyone so I'm sure they'll sell like hotcakes.

The same way people will pay $1000 for a Dogic, a relatively unremarkable puzzle

According to speedcubeshop apparently there is "less than 50% left". I guess they do sell.
I'm pretty sure the GAN K'un also sold out quickly from preorders. So for SCS and GAN, there is basically no downside to releasing these. People who thought GAN was overpriced weren't going to get it anyway.
