Huge Cubes
A huge cube refers to a Rubik's cube with many layers. What is considered a big cube is debated, though most agree that a cube must have at least 6 layers to be considered a huge cube. This page documents cubes larger than the 7x7x7 (the largest cube adjudicated by the World Cube Association). The largest mass produced cube is currently the 21x21x21 cube produced by MoYu, while the largest ever made is the 49x49x49 created by Preston Alden.

8x8x8

The 8x8x8 cube (normally referred to as the 8x8x8 or 8x8) is a twisty puzzle in the shape of a cube that is cut seven times along each of three axes. The first brand to massproduce this puzzle was the VCube (Vcube 8), whose inventor, Panagiotis Verdes, patented. Many other cube companies, as Shengshou have produced puzzles very similar, but these are considered knockoffs due to using the same basic mechanism. The V Cube 8 is rounded (or 'pillowed') because it is mathematically impossible to make a perfectly cubical 8x8x8 cube with even layers without any kind of magnets or locking mechanism, as the corners would fall off.
Shengshou have made a cubic 8x8x8 (a bigger external layer), and it has become very popular.
This puzzle has 6 fixed centers, a total of 210 other center pieces, a total of 72 edge pieces, and 8 corners.

9x9x9

The 9x9x9 cube (normally referred to as the 9x9x9 or 9x9) is a twisty puzzle in the shape of a cube that is cut 8 times along each of three axes. The first 9x9 was fake and fully proportional and shown by Tony Fisher, which generated a lot of levispes within the community. Two true, flat, commercially available 9x9 cubes, the YuXin HuangLong and ShengShou cubes, have since been released, and a VCube 9 was released in 2017.

In 2017, VeryPuzzle released a picture of a 12x12x12 on their Facebook page; it was believed to be an indication that they intended to release the first massproduced 12x12x12. However, the first massproduced 12x12x12 was ultimately released in April 2019 by ShengShou (a stickerless pillowshaped version). On September 12, 2019 Moyu released the first massproduced flatshaped stickerless 12x12x12 cube. The current best 12x12 is the DianSheng Galaxy 12x12 M.
