Usually I'd put updates in the Upcoming Puzzles thread, but one thread per release is better for organization and staying on-topic (the GAN 13 thread is doing well)

QiYi made a fancy robotic factory arm release video

I expect the price to be about $22 in US based on Chinese pricing. $26 at The Cubicle for standard

I know you mentioned it is just for standard, but stating the price is $26 still feels a bit misleading.

$26 standard
$33 mag core
$40 magcore + maglev

I pre ordered the premium version, but I suspect the $33 middle version will be the sweet spot for most people, considering we have yet (in my opinion) to really be given a true reason why maglev is better than standard spring.

yeah, I'm gonna get the $33 one and maybe change my main for the first time in almost 2 years. I'm not adding 8 grams to my cube just for maglev

yes, that too lol. Luckily I never used the cubicle loyalty thing so I also have a $10 gift card
I still don't understand the trend towards lighter cubes. Do people really care that much about such small weight?

I currently main a core modded rs3m 2020 and when I use my secondary, a guhong v4, I like its lighter weight. It's just more satisfying I guess. Plus, I don't really notice a difference between rs3m 2020 and 2021

after a certain point it starts feeling cheap
I tried a friend's gan 12 and it almost felt cheap because of how ridiculously light it is. also why the rs3m 2020 doesn't feel as cheap as a meilong or little magic.

This cube design is just beautiful,

Good job from the X-Man designer in China. I forgot his name, he is super experienced cube designer.

Looks great. I pre-ordered the Maglev+Magcore version and can't wait to try it out.

I guess Maglev+Magcore is the new 'thing'

Tornado v3, RS3M, Meilong WRM, Gan... 12 and 13 it's spreading.

that's the American name lol. I'd feel more accurate calling him Zhang Xiaojing (张小静). although I thought 小静 is a girl's name so I'm confused. @Imsoosm tell me if that's right

Lol, if it's used in full names it rarely matters. If you use 小静 as a nickname it would probably be for a girl, but if you use it in full name it can be girl or boy
