Mixup Cube is like a Rubik's Cube, but with an unexpected twist. When a mid plane is turned by 45 degrees, other turns are possible. This way of turning mixes up the center and edge pieces. Although the concept has already been patented in 1985 by Sergey Makarov, this version has an internal 2x2x2 "cube" for extra stability.

Hi! I would love to purchase this puzzle for my birthday. I have a few questions. Can it be lubercated if not can you send it lubercated? Also do the styles or designs affect performance? If it does can you tell me which has best performance. Thank pyou for your time.

please oskar hollow it out and it'll be number one on my list. Could you try making one or two mini puzzles to see how this turns out? I thin you'd get lots of sales if you made a mini gear (caution) cube and mini mixup!! Could you possible send me the length of an edge compared to this of a center by PM please, and also give me a ratio please? Thanks! - Greg
