Glad I read this when I did: I was JUST about to place my order.

However, I would like a hard deadline when to expect this before I plunk down money (which is what we all wish when discussing PRE-ORDERS.)

Has anyone checked with Gregory if the pre-sale price will be extended or should I try and email him to see if the pre-sale price will be honored until a shipping ETA will be better assessed?

I haven't gotten my email explanation yet, but Illusioneer if there's anyone I would trust, it's Gregory. He won't endlessly yank people around

Just biting my fingernails until it arrives! Smile

I asked him directly if the presale price was extended or not and that's what he told me. It wasn't an email sent out to everyone.

I can certainly understand why so many here have a problem with pre-orders.
But in this case it's Gregory Wilson, who has a very good reputation as a creator and producer of magic products.
But even beyond that this isn't the typical savings of only a few dollars, but a full C-note.
That's a pretty substantial savings and enough of an incentive for many to take the plunge early, before reviews have come in.

But I have to admit that I am a little worried that the opinion of a couple folks already in the know seems to be that they are surprised that it would be priced so high.
But even still I will likely pull the trigger before the August 1st deadline.

I got an email this morning, explaining that there's a problem with one of the custom-made components of the Rubicon, and that they will not ship Monday. It says that when we receive it in September, it will be perfect.

Hmm Smile - Interesting decision. Smile

Poor Decomposed. Smile I feel for him. Perhaps the Chinese knock offs will be ready before Gregg's. You never know. Smile

Late to the party, been on vacation. Bummer. But life goes on. At least I can solve the cube now.


Anyone know if stickers come on the cube or we put them on? Anyone have a link to how to correctly place them?

I've got plans for a new, better cube effect! All the sides & colors are the SAME. Who's in? No twisting involved. It's just a solid block. It won't even break if you drop it on the floor!

...interestingly enough I preordered but sent the money to a non existent account (a typo I didn't catch). So the money never left my account and it turns out I never pre-ordered. Serendipity? Fate? Now what do I do? Smile

I love all of Greg Wilson's stuff but not convinced this is worth several times the cost compared to Collaboration Cube.

I will use the cliche I see on Stephen Young items for sale:


"Finger hovering over the pay pal button"


Waiting until September gives plenty of time now to learn how to solve a cube or brushing up if you already know how to. Unsure when Greg comes back.....but if he said there are problems with quality best to wait.

I heard the collaboration cube takes some skill.....dunno for sure...I read you get one gimmicked cube and one ungimmicked cube. If that is true, I think I would prefer Greg's method.

Looking at the demo it didn't seem to be so different... the skill required seem the same... but of course, I do not know the method so, maybe, I am totally wrong...
