Please note that some new cubes when being used for the first few times may experience what is termed a "pop". This is when one or more parts of a puzzle pop out without any damage actually being done to any of the pieces. This also occurs from time to time during normal usage. Pops are typically not considered a defect if the parts which come off can be reassembled by hand.

It took me a long time to decide to give this puzzle a chance, as I've heard all the worst reviews about it, about how horribly it turns, how much it pops, etc. I think the puzzle came out at least 2-3 years ago (it's now May 2021), and I've just now purchased it. So, what can I say? Having done two full solves on it, along with some isolated Compy Cube and Skewb solves, along with just playing around with it, I can say that my very low expectations have been exceeded. The Skewb turns are fairly reasonable, with minor catching. Half of the Dino turns are alright as well. The other half of the Dino turns are the main problem, as they are very stiff and catchy - however - if you're careful, it's functional enough where you can do a solve without a pop. I've been careful with it and so far I haven't gotten a single pop, thankfully. The catchiness and stiffness can be a bit frustrating, but considering that this is a one-of-a-kind hybrid puzzle of a Compy Cube and a Skewb, I think it's still worth it. If you're a speed cuber and only like smooth turning puzzles, then this puzzle may not be for you. But if you don't mind some stiffness and catchiness and enjoy unique challenging solves, and know how to handle such a puzzle carefully to minimize the chances of a pop, then I'd recommend it.
I keep wanting to continue the solve, since the puzzle itself is fun to figure out. However, the turning is really bad, as it seems every single piece has to be lined up perfectly to turn. The pieces constantly want to pop out (I’ve had a few actually pop, although they’ve been fairly easy to put back in so far). I would definitely recommend waiting until a cheaper and better version is produced.
Turning is terrible and constantly falls apart. Not acceptable for the price. Great idea horrible execution in terms of manufacturing. Practically not functional. Do not buy this unless you want it just to say you have it.
