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.

This puzzle looks great. The precision of the plastic parts is remarkable, and the stickers are really good too. 12 great colors. About 2% of the sticker had minor issues (unclean cuts or bad alignment) but these never interfered with game play.
This puzzle would be perfect except for the small size. Crazy Comet is about the same height as a standard 3x3 cube, but the blocks around the parameter are less than 1 centimeter in width (thinner than an adult's pinky finger!). This means speed-cubing is a no-go unless you are a midget or an infant.
The build seems very precise, and yet allows some corner-cutting. Sadly it often locks-up which I assume is due to so many axes (12 faces, which is 2-times-more than Rubik's cube)... in other words, with so many faces, there is a good chance one will be slightly out of alignment, and the puzzle will lock-up.
I would REALLY like to buy a larger version of this puzzle. That would be easier for human-adult fingers, and perhaps fewer lock-ups (or better corner-cutting).
This is a very challenging puzzle, similar in difficulty to FuttMinx (but easier because only 12 sides). Like FuttMinx, there is 'bandaging' issues about how you can turn the faces. Some faces only need 90-degree turn, while others need a 180-degree turn. Actually every face can turn 90 or 180 degrees, but the problem is when you try to combine the face turns!!!
I recommend this as a challenge for experienced cubers, or a nice collectible... but it is too small for speed-cubing or casual play.
Overall, this is a really cool puzzle. It solves essentially the same way as the Curvy Copter Plus, but the shape of the puzzle makes the jumbling a little less confusing. Still, it was a challenge to figure out, and very satisfying to complete. The turning quality isn't great out of the box, but it becomes surprisingly good with a little loosening. Definitely recommend if you want something rather unique to add to your collection, or you just want a bit of a challenge.
this cube is incredible difficult but also very fun to solve. Popping isnt an issue. the turning of this puzzle is not great. ( i wasn't expecting it to be.) And the stickers on the small sides fall off very easy. this puzzle is great for cuboid collectors.
