X-Man Galaxy Megaminx V2 M (Sculpted)
The X-Man Galaxy Megaminx V2 M (Sculpted) is the QiYi magnetized version of the X-Man Galaxy Megaminx V2. The puzzle has medium strength magnets that provide a very tactile feedback when the layers align. This version has sculpted ridges on each piece to aid turning and grip.
This variant also comes with a set of black parts in the box, which can be used to switch one side to black.
Juan Pablo Huanqui used this puzzle to set the 30.39 second average and 27.22 second single megaminx world records in August and December 2019 respectively.

This cube is amazing
I've had this puzzle for some time now, and its fantastic. Not much else to say, definitely recommend if you're looking to buy a quality megaminx.
Reposting this review because I accidentally posted this review on the concave rather than sculpted listing, oops.
I got this because I wanted to try a smaller megaminx than my current main, the galaxy v2 lm. The LM and M are the same on paper in every respect aside from size - same magnets, piece structure, etc. The M feels much snappier than the LM, however. This isn't necessarily a bad thing, but it is noticeably different.
That being said, I do like the turning on this puzzle. The magnets do a great job of keeping the shape of the puzzle and keeping it from squirming around in your hand without being overpowering. The stickerless shades are great and it includes black pieces if you want to swap out a side, although you will need to glue the (included) magnets in place in the black pieces if you do so. Overall, this is a great puzzle that I would recommend.
The bottom line is that this is an excellent puzzle, but you shouldn't expect it to feel the same as the LM. Puzzles often feel different in different sizes, and this one is no exception.
I paid $24.99 for this puzzle from Cubicle and purchased the sculpted stickerless version.
I'm far from a speed cubist - I just like the relaxation of physically solving twisty puzzles... it's my version of knitting, I suppose. :) Despite this, I decided to splurge on myself with a high quality megaminx, and this one seemed to fit the bill...
The puzzle is very well built, and it is only a smidgen smaller than the other modern megaminx I enjoy, and a hair bigger than the ones I got from mefferts many years ago... This puzzle has no noticeable squish regardless of how or where one holds it, which is very nice. Unlike some of the previous reviews, this puzzle is super dry -- so dry, I figured that was why there was a flyer describing all the lubes available in this shipment! lol... every single face turns the same - lurchy at best. After a couple solves and some patterns, it seems there *is* some lube in it, but so far it's not 'breaking in' or getting any better. I think this condition would be ideal if you are a cubist who likes to customize the feel with their particular favorite lube(s), but for a generic puzzlist such as myself, I'm not sure how to make this more enjoyable to manipulate.
While I'd give it's current state a 2.5 star rating, I have such a good impression and hopes for how this puzzle would feel with some 'basic tuning' by someone who knows what they like, that I can't help but give this 5 stars... Just know you'll have to put a little work into making this your favourite! 🙋♀️
This puzzle is very good and is, in my opinion, the best megaminx on the market. You just need to break it in.
This is perfect. Perfect speed and the corner cutting is great for a megaminx and the sculpted design is perfect for grip and the only cube I would recommend over this is the GAN megaminx but that's $60 and for this price range defiantly the best megaminx out there.
I LOVE this cube I use it for my main in every competition I go to and I hope everybody else likes this cube.
I cannot recommend this megaminx enough! OOTB it was smooth, fast, and very quiet. Magnet strength is perfect. The smaller size has helped me greatly with my look-ahead. First solve I broke my PB, then broke that PB twice. My only complaints are that it comes with WAAAAYYY too much lube on it. It gets everywhere! Also a magnet popped out of place (my fault for dropping it) so I had to glue it back in. This is the best megaminx I've ever tried and I would be willing to pay twice the price for it.
Out of the box it is pretty sluggish, but very smooth and quiet. The magnets are at a perfect strength, and they do their job. The ridges are necessary, because a dodecahedron is a pretty awkward shape to hold in your hands. After cleaning it out and putting some DNM and light Traxxas 30k, I broke it in and it turns at a perfect speed. The smoothness and stability are preserved with this set up, and you basically can't go wrong with this set-up. I have since replaced the white with the black, because the off-white cream color and white are hard to distinguish.
I like this megaminx a lot. Before I got this my two megaminxes were the X-man v1 and the Yuxin Little Magic Megaminx v1. I actually used the YLM as my main because I don't like the v1, but both were kinda slow, especially the YLM. When I got this puzzle, I was kind of disappointed that it didn't come with magnets in the Black pieces, so know you will need some more glue to put the magnets in if you decide to switch.
I don't like the small size a whole lot, but I think it's okay. My times are probably 2 secs faster and I really like it.
