I was going to say "AGAIN?", but then I noticed they're buckyCUBES.

Sorry for being negative, but cubes are much less fun than balls. Will be skipping this one as can think of much less shapes I can make with these. Zen Balls all the way!

Square is the new round.

Incidentally, making them into the original cube shape they shipped in will be substantially less difficult.

My wife has already said several times that she will kill me if I buy any more magnets... as much as I'd love it get some, I have to pass.

Fnord.

I like how the buckycubes come together to form a large cube. I have always felt that buckyballs, when combined, should form a larger ball. But alas, no.

That's 5 cents cheaper for only ONE set, though. This has a whole second set for only 5 cents more (plus $5 shipping, of course).

Looks like a Rubik's Cube with no possible solution. I would go insane.

Metaphorical babies, of course.

Is this like how Apple releases a new iPhone that's just like the old one, except it's .0000025% thinner, and thus makes it a "revolutionary game changer"?

Spheres to cubes? Heck, even the Fushigi added a feature in glow in the dark :P.

For some reason, tonight's Woot reminds me of classic Sesame Street.

Wish I could buy 3, to add to the too big pile of buckyball spheres, but I am broke, so 1 set it is.

I'm a poor college student. That means I can justify buying one pointlessly fun set of magnet cubes, but not two.

i've got lots of sets of buckyballs, and thousands of zen magnets (kept away from each other, of course).

i'm waiting to see what happens when i mix 125 buckyballs with 125 buckycubes.

thoughts?

in for 2.

Judging by the size of these, they need to have a 20 for Tuesday just to get any joy out of them. Man, they're small.
