Hi everyone,

can you help me identify what cube this is? Obviously it's a DaYan... i bought it of Amazon ~6(?) years ago. At that time, i was interested in cubing again but lost interest again before it arrived (Amazon order taking >4 weeks). Before that, i had a budget cube, it turned so terrible, i lost interest after solving it (that was ~15 years ago). After digging this one out last August, i got interested in cubing again. And i invested in a few decent cubes :)

Thank you!

Looks like a Guhong V1 to me.

Is this a YJ Guansu 4x4? It comes with another packaging though. My parent found it at a toy store.

This one is a 5x5 but what is its name? Is it a no brand? Clearly says 'FinHop'.

Thanks if you help :)
The packaging say YJ Guansu and YJ Guanchuang (in Chinese characters), but I don't know whether they're the actual Guansu and Guanchuang or whether they're knockoffs.

Yesterday, a friend gave this puzzle:



https://flic.kr/p/242sjUD

It was already scrambled when he gave it to me.

Now, I want to solve it but I can't find a tutorial since I don't know what's this puzzle called. I have been searching for a day now but I can't find a puzzle similar to this. Sadly, my friend also didn't know what this is called.

So, do anyone of you knows what it is? Any help is appreciated.

When i saw the picture i thought that it looks like a mixture of a Dino cube and a skewb.
So i typed "Dino skewb" into Google and that's actually exactly what it is : a dayan dino skewb
