I got the stickerless version and I'm very happy with it! When it first arrived, it was really stiff, I think the screws had been completely tightened. But it was really easy to take off the center caps and loosen the screws a little (a quarter or half a turn). If you loosen them too much, then the puzzle might explode - but I found it very easy to get the right tension, and the puzzle turns very nicely (given its complexity - don't expect to use it for speed-solving! )
I have no issues with this puzzle, the quality feels great and I haven't had any unexpected pops. But I still would not recommend taking this on a train or plane!
I've scrambled and solved it many times - but it is an extremely difficult puzzle! Maybe not the best choice for a complete beginner?
This is a very hard puzzle and took me a long time to find a solution. Before you scramble this, I would recommend that you set it up properly or you will have a very bad experience. I took off all of the center capes and wrapped the cube VERY tightly in tape and cut with an exacto knife a line between the top and middle layers and a hole to access the screw in the top layer. I then removed the top layer by unscrewing the screw from the core keeping every thing still wrapped tightly. I then added lots of dnm-37 but traxxas 50k would probably work as well along the tracks. I then put it back together and tighened each face by about a quarter of a turn and CAREFULLY removed the tape and loosened the cube until it could barely turn and then worked in the lube by doing 3x3 turns until it turned well.
I've wanted one of these cubes ever since I saw one beautifully scrambled. I'm a collector of artistic puzzles. This is a great looking cube and a very challenging puzzle.
I have gone with other puzzles that I'd sticker; But in doing that, I've found the smaller stickers are more likely to curl up and peel off.
My personal choice of puzzles ( when I'm not sure about the puzzle's solve, I prefer to get the factory stickered or stickerless version)
The smaller areas may peel off so I'm glad that I went with the sticker less version.
I have not solved this totally but am finding it to be a fun challenge.
Stick to Sun Cube, this has too many pieces, its just as hard to scramble as it is to solve, turns better than expected
IMHO: I believe the stickerless puzzles have more flex rubber feeling than the harder black MF8 DAYAN puzzles. This quality makes the stickered version better. My first unstickered one got the triangles stretched out where the triangle went from one group to another. I adjusted that puzzle. After putting it back together 3 times with even tight tightening all the way and a quarter turn loose it fell apart right away because of 3 misshaped triangles. My next sticker less one I did not adjust and eventually after a few solves it turns good. Since then all my MF8 DAYAN puzzles I do not adjust unless they start to get too loose which only happened on the Stickered Sun Cube which turns much better than any stickerless one on YouTube. I love the MF8 Dayan puzzles but had to learn the hard way from experience. I lube but never over lube a puzzle that can fall apart like grains of sand.
This is a great cube for a real challenge. It's really fun to have a puzzle that's unique but still has 3x3 roots. I'd definitely buy recommend it. It's super fragile though, be very careful. It will explode on you very easily, especially before it's lubed and well broken in. Be sure to tension it such that it's just able to turn. Any more than a quarter turn past being able to turn and the risk of explosion increases.
the cube arrived a bit earlier then expected. Cube in good conditions and feels great !
BUT if you are not veeery careful when doing the turns, it will literally explode and melt in your hands. A pop means assembly from scratch, unscrew centers, use duct tape all over the place and so on. In no way should you take this puzzle in the train, for example, because the mess when it pops is truly massive. This can be mostly avoided by tightening the tensions in a balanced way.
I was expecting much fun from this cube from I had read in many cube sites. I was a bit disappointed to see that it was available here but only in a sticker-it-yourself version. But I ordered it... And it was a nightmare to detach the stickers from their plastic sheet ! I tried with 3 ou 4 of them and I gave up.
That is why I ordered a stickerless version from another site and it does feel fun now !
This puzzle is a gem to have in your puzzle collection. If you want hours of tedious work, buy this puzzle. That being said, this puzzle must be treated with the utmost care; if you try to force a turn while shapeshifted, there is a good chance it will pop. You do not want to have to put this puzzle together, it is devilishly hard to put together; when assembling the puzzle, use masking tape or some other tape to keep pieces together. Tighten this puzzle down and go something like 1 or 2 turns counterclockwise to get a tolerable turning; also, lube the puzzle up, it will make it much more enjoyable.
