Our Promise to You
All of our products are guaranteed to be free of defects, or we will replace and reship at no cost to you. Please contact us within 4 weeks (28 days) past the delivery date to report any issues with items you have purchased.
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.
The corners on 2x2 puzzles should not be twisted as doing so may snap the piece. Damage caused by corner twisting is not considered to be a defect.

Out of the box its crap. At least 200 solves and LOADS!!! of lubicle silk does the trick. After that its the dream puzzle ;)
This cube (dodecahedron) turned horribly out of the box. After lubing it with maru lube and tensioning it however, it turns nice and looks great on my shelf. I recommend you by this.
after a lot of research I chose to go with the mf8 giga minx over the cube for you version and I have to say I am very glad I did when I received this in the mail it was very tight out of the box well playing with the tensions I discovered that if you loosen to much the pieces will pop out which happened to me and having never assembled one of these before it took me 3 hours just to put back the 2 layers that popped off but once I got it back together and properly adjusted the tensions and lubed it up and solved it a couple of times
it became an amazing puzzle however something for future buyers to be aware of the inner layers of this puzzle have some little pieces of plastic at the end of each inner edge that need to be removed if you want better turning on the inner layers this is optional though cuz over time it might break in any ways but if you don't want to wait you can use an exacto knife to lightly scrape the excess plastic that causes friction in the inner layers but overall this is an awesome awesome puzzle I just wish I didn't take so long to solve but that's ok thank you very much cubicle for this really cool puzzle
Out of the box, this turns absolutely terrible. It has a very tight tension which makes turning difficult. Pieces also catch frequently with misalignment of layers. You will need to loosen the screws before doing a solve. The caps are very difficult to get off which is good during solving but bad if you want to adjust the tension. For me, I had loosen all the screws as much as I could. After that I recommend using lube because I find that it reduces catching when turning. After getting it set up it works great! It is about the size of a soft ball and weighs a bit more than a mega minx. It takes a while to solve but it very enjoyable to do. I have no issues with popping during solves. If you like 5x5's and mega minxes then this will be a good puzzle for you.
This puzzle is so awesome. If you've got the funds for it and you're a fan of the megaminx/5x5 cubes and higher, I definitely recommend this. Details: the puzzle is smaller than I expected, but that is probably a good thing. It is pretty difficult to turn, my hands were very tired after the first solve (which took about an hour!), but I can tell from the other reviews that it probably just needs some breaking in. Also, the cubicle had this delivered to my house 3 days after I placed the order! That is top notch.
Edit: So I did a few solves on this thing, and during all of them it was very difficult to turn like I mentioned before. Loosening the tensions helped a little bit, but not much. I decided to lube it, and used a BUNCH of weight two so it would spread thoroughly and that made an amazing difference. It turns amazingly now. Honestly I think tensioning and breaking in is optional, lubing it is like magic.
