The pictures show an old plastic DaYan 2x2 (black screws, as opposed to silver ones), but that's probably because those pictures are old and not updated. You should contact the seller and find out, but I have a feeling it's not.

DO YOU HAVE A OLD PLASTIC?
CAN I PLZ HAVE IT?
I BEEN SUB TO YOU FOR SO LONG!
Lol, yes I do have an Old Plastic DaYan, but seeing as I really like it and it's my only one, I don't plan on selling it any time soon. And I agree with @Tycubing above; you can get the same exact times on any other 2x2. I generally use a MoYu TangPo instead of the OP DaYan, and the TangPo isn't even considered as good as the WeiPo or some other modern cubes.

Please don't post 10 different posts in a row. Instead, do it all at once in the same post, or post once and keep editing that post. This goes against the forum rules.

You can tell if a DaYan 2x2 is old plastic if it has black screws instead of silver ones. Because they've been discontinued for years, it is extremely hard to find them now. If you really want one, I recommend that you ask the sellers, as they're the only ones who would really know. Nobody on this forum has access to any more than you do about the individual listings.

I get that you really want it for your birthday, but I think you're over-hyping it a bit too much. Generally, you're not going to find an OP DaYan for under $30 or $40, and they're really not worth it. They're great and all, but most other modern 2x2s are just as good, if not better. You'd be saving a lot of time and money just getting a WeiPo or YuXin White. :)

Wait, the indicator is the screws?
Is it certain that new plastic ones don't use black screws? 'Cause the Dayan 2x2 I got back in 2013/14 has black screws...

So I bought this cube off a guy for a couple bucks thinking that it was a basic four colored cube. Started solving it and realized that wasn't the case. I have no idea what brand this cube is or what it's supposed to look like when it's solved and neither did the guy I bought it from as I bought it from him scrambled. There's these bi-colored edge pieces that just don't seem to fit anywhere. And what's odd is that there are only five bi-colored pieces. 1 red/green, 1 yellow/red, 1 yellow/green, but 2 yellow/blue. The other seven are just one color. 2 red, 2 blue, 2 green, but 1 yellow. So there's something funky going on with the color yellow. Me and my friends have spent more than enough hours trying to figure out what the pattern is and I just really want to know what this cube is supposed to look like so I can put it together. I can't seem to find any pictures of it online either. So I'm hoping that someone on here has seen this cube before and can post a picture of what it's supposed to look like.

It sure looks like it ought to be this:

Hey, I'm looking for some help identifying a 3x3 which I forgot the model / name of.

I've taken some photos of the pieces, and from the center logo looks similar to the Moyu logo on ebay listings that I've seen.

I don't remember when I got it (exactly) but its definitely post 2009 (it has edge torpedoes) and probably pre-2016 (I don't remember touching a cube for 2 years prior to this week) . Also the center caps fall off very easily and there is some blu-tack on them to keep them on which I vaguely remember doing myself.
