Does anyone remember Puzz 3D? I was recently reminded of it when I found pieces of my old Titanic a long time ago as I was cleaning around the house today.
I started searching online for them and was taken on a nostalgia trip.
It looks like though these days, they've become rare and hard to find seeing as they don't seem to be retailing anymore.
Anyone have any advise or ideas on how to get some, particularly the more famous Puzz3Ds like I remember Duomo and Taj Majal but this Nimitz also looks great. And general 3D puzzle thread too.
Also to add, I'm trying to see if there's some of official "catalog" for these but I'm not finding much through Google since its just giving me Amazon, ebay, and some really small name sellers.
These things were my absolute favorite as a kid and I would look for them at every store we ever visited. This was after their popularity faded so it was a real stroke of luck when I could find one. Then about a year ago they came back and I still haven't bought one.
I did find the Titanic (hopefully complete) in a Houston toyshop last year, and a Millennium Falcon at a garage sale, but I've procrastinated putting them together.
I'm seeing now Amazon actually carries quite a huge selection of them and has some great deals on them including the prime Free shipping. This could be fun.
Built Camelot at work a while back. It was pretty alright. Not particularly hard but i had to brute force it a bit considering it's all just variants of stone walls. The rest of the office seemed to enjoy watching it get built.
Are you me?
>pic related, it's my second closet where I just toss shit
I had this, Cinderella's Castle and the Millennium Falcon which was my favorite, I would always hang it up. I also had the Titanic and Statue of Liberty, but from what I remembered those weren't Puzz3D, and also I never completed them.
The Falcon was the shit!
I got the millennium falcon when I was a kid and never put it together until a few years ago.It was such a pain in the ass, and still didn't fit together perfectly, I see why my young self quickly gave up. It eventually fell off the basement tv stand and crumpled into a shit ton of pieces, I said fuck that and shoved them into a closet.
I got that one secondhand from a family friend around 10 years ago and built it that year. I got so tired of the sameness that about halfway through I just started abusing the fact that the instructions accurately detail every piece's shape. It was about as sweet and sour a feeling of satisfaction as you can imagine, but it looked great on the shelf since it's one of the few where the grey foam blends in.
A year or two ago they came back into production and you could find them at every Walmart, Target and B&N. Now they're a little less common since they apparently didn't sell too well, but they're (mostly) well priced on Amazon if you can't find any in town.
yes I do. I'm missing the Commerzbank-Messeturm set released only in Europe to complete the Towers Made to Scale collection.
>pic related, my collection as is.
So many buildings look like just solid silver or black, how do you even got together the hundreds of pieces for it? Perhaps the most perplexing of all, how do you know which side is which?
some of them aren't too difficult and you just take the typical approach of building a regular puzzle. The Petronas Towers took forever to build though because of the twin tower design.
The sets come with cardboard supports that go on the inside, and black and white instructions that show the cuts, so you know which side goes where.
nah, I don't have any. Plus there isn't a lot of space in between the towers themselves.
