About this Product
This puzzle may look like a normal helicopter cube, but it is quite a bit more. As you may be able to tell by the pictures (and video), the corner and triangular pieces are swappable. This is a functionality not present on the normal helicopter cube. Solving he puzzle without jumbling is that same, but when he puzzle is jumbled, it beomes an entirely different (muh more challengin) expierience. the original idea for this puzzle was presented by Tom Vander Zanden, and it is being produced with his permission.
When you purchase the puzzle, you have the option of buying a do it yourself kit, or an assembled puzzle. The diy kit only includes the parts for the puzzle, it does not include stickers, or screws. If you purchase an assembled puzzle, the puzzle will be shipped to you assembled, stickered, broken in, lubed, and ready to play. Either option you choose, I reccomend getting a black puzzle, because over time, the white material will absorb very small amounts of dust/dirt and will become discolored.The DIY kits are shipped to you directly by Shapeways (you will make payment to Shapeways). The assembled puzzles are shipped to you by me (you will make payment to me).
PRICES DIY White: $ 80 DIY Black: $ 98 Assembled (either color): $140 (these prices do not include any taxes/import fees that you may have to pay)
