Where's the price?
To negotiate the best possible price for our members, we must agree to hide our prices externally.



Why the Zhanchi? It's an okay cube, but modern cubes have gotten so much better, with full-cutting, zero pops, and no corner-twisting being standard. The Zhanchi's a bit of a relic.
Just gonna put this out here. These puzzles are very much outdated and you can get puzzles that are a milestone better at a cheaper price.

Got any good recommendations?
We've continued to coordinate with the vendor about the group's order and they've let us know that it's taken them slightly longer than expected to gather and prepare everything for shipment to our warehouse in New Jersey. Rest assured, we will remain in close contact with them and update the group as soon as everything is on the way.
Expect another update from us on 1/9 or sooner if something comes up.

Awaiting confirmation! We are still in contact with the vendor and just awaiting updated shipment estimates from them. We have a call scheduled first thing tomorrow morning and should get a bit more visibility in regards to when we can expect these in our warehouse.

Zhanchi's are outdated. They're good cubes to be sure, but you can pick up much better cubes for the same price or less. Also the zhanchi requires a lot of setting up to be good; not great for the beginning cuber who is looking to pick this up. Nothing against mass drop, but if you're going to be waiting a while to get your cubes, you might as well just order from a chinese site like lighttake and get a better, newer cube for as much or less. If you're picking them up for your collection, have at it, but if you're just trying to get into cubing I'd recommend picking up a Guanlong or something similar (~$4).
I am not going to debate whether the price is the cheapest you will find. I received these from a previous drop when I knew nothing about all of the various speed and stickerless cubes available. They are amazing. I had gotten Rubik's branded cubes for my kids for Christmas last year, (new tiled, not stickers) and then saw this. Once I tried these, even after lubrication the Rubik's ones are a chore. If, like I was, you are new to the idea of premium cubes, these are awesome,. If you are a bargain hunter by all means try to find a lower price elsewhere. buy with confidence. I use massdrop not just for good deals, but reliable input from fellow droppers. My input on these is that they are worth what I paid.
I'm really not trying to disrespect the guys organising the drop here, but I think it would be bad not to speak up here. As a cube/puzzle collector for a number of years now, I can't help but suggest that there are cheaper, and what many would consider better engineered cubes elsewhere. Zcube.hk, cubezz (free international shipping), Amazon, to name a few.
The ZhanChi models are well known for being a great standard in the community, but I just thought I'd let people interested in this know that there have been plenty of models released by various companies since the ZhanChi.
If you're interested in getting involved with cubing though, definitely do your research! Welcome to the community!
Were these ever shipped? Never got mine.

Really? A made-in-China Rubik's cube clone won't ship to outside the US? What's the deal Massdrop? What/who is preventing this deal from shipping elsewhere (like Canada)?
This is a great cube, and I recommend it fully. However, for those who can't be shipped to, amazon does carry both for $10-$15 with Prime.
Just received mine. Holy crap is that buttery smooth. Thanks Guys for doing the drop!

Same! My only other cube is a Rubik's wooden one. I have no experience with cubes other than that, but have been wanting to get a DaYan after hearing all the good things. This cube is great!

No shipping outside the US? Poor Canadia~

and europe~
Maybe something like a gans would be more reasonable, but an older cube that doesn't preform as well as many newer cubes is kind of a waste. Good to see a cube on mass drop though

Zhanchi 2x2 is still top, and the 3x3 is still quite good even compared to something like a hualong
Price is a little high, but not extremely so. I recommend both cubes if looking for a 3x3x3 and/or a 2x2x2. Looking forward to better cubing deals in the future though.
As already mentioned, stickerless cubes are not competition legal.
EDIT: Competition regulations have been changed and these cubes are competition legal. Previously they were not because there is the "advantage" that you can peak at the edges of the cube to see those cubies full colors. See picture.

Its_Benny
actually they are now. July first they passed a regulation which allows them

Thanks for sharing. I don't keep up with competition regulations since I don't compete, but I hadn't heard that before.
I need this in EU :(
These just sold out for 7.99$ on ebay
As much as I like this cube, this drop is a rip off. Also not this is not competition legal.

When you're putting down times in the sec range when literally a millisecond counts it actually does make a difference

Trust me, I'm in the range where very small improvements matter. I have never, ever found looking at pieces like that useful.
I just think I found this in Ebay for 9.99 is it the same cube?
