Unless you guys are masters at the 3X3 rubik's cube (the standard one), this one will still pose quite the challenge. Like the 3X3, a 2X2 rubik's cube needs an algorythm to be solved. You guys forget the three dimensional aspect of the 4 seperate pieces which means they can end up anywhere in different orientations, like these 2X2s below:

There are tutorials online to teach you the algorithms. I have a 3x3 and I am not bad at it. Takes me a few hours to solve it each time I play with it. Its sometimes tricky to remember the patterns and I wind up starting over.

Seriously the thing is 4 pieces to move, no where near as bad as that 8x8x8 rubik cube knock off
Next you're gonna tell me, it isn't normal to solve college level algebra equations at the age of 4,

Not speaking for those who can easily solve a 3X3 rubick's cube, but a 2X2 cube like this is not that easy. I have been struggling all week tryng to figure out my own 2X2 shaped as darth vader. While its essentially the same thing, the fact that this toy is sculpted as a face makes it even more challenging since the idea of a "side" is less easy to distinguish. And all rubick's tutorials are based on flat cube surfaces so youtube wont be much help. Maybe I just suck at this stuff, but I find puzles like this one super challenging and I do want to prepare those who have no experience and think that it looks simple. Its not.

I can't blame you man. I have had a 3x3 for a few years and I still have trouble with it at times. Some people are amazing at solving cubes but I have problems memorizing all the algorithms.

But at least the puzzle being shaped like Optimus' head will prevent anyone from throwing it in frustration. :-P

It wont look like anything once people shuffle him and try to solve him. I am looking forward to what that looks like actually. All pics will be welcome :)

I am debating getting one. Knowing my aunt she might pick one up for my birthday this summer.

Our own Bumblebee21 has sighted an Optimus Prime Rubik's Crew Puzzle Head at their local wal-mart in Winter Garden, Florida. They were generous enough to send us a picture which we have posted below. The Optimus Prime Rubik's Puzzle head rings up for roughly $12.98. If you'd like a closer look check out this article to get a better idea of how the puzzle will work.

Didn't know they weren't reportedly in stores yet. Tru has them up at the front for $12.99 each, right in the TLK display. Can't send pictures, enjoying a nice ear of corn and the closest store gets sketchy past 8:30.

Just posting in the sightings section would be enough, even if you cannot get a picture.
