My brother can complete one in under 1 minute every time, he says there's a 'knack' to it but I don't believe him I think it's a trick, iv'e seen him actually do it and I still think he's lying lol.


I can't finish it either but it is possible to do if you are capable of memorizing the proper sequence of the moves. I watched this little guy before on the link below. It's amazing what the mind is capable of doing.

Haha I watched that a few weeks ago, I just don't get how anybody can do that.

My brother told me to finish one you need to get all the corners first then it's apparently a piece of cake from there to finish it.

I just don't get how someone can do it blindfolded and know where each colour is, and do it super fast too!

Looking at them now, as I never even knew they were Star Wars toys as a kid, it's mini rigs, the INT-4 and MTV-7 especially. The INT-4 makes me think of father teds spider baby, it's got the head of an AT-AT and the wings of a baby. And as for the MTV I just don't get it, wheels and imperials don't mix in my mind, would darth vader roll in it, nope.

Ha. I never owned a PDT as a kid but I couldn't get an image of Artoo and Threepio ski-ing down snow slopes on Hoth. The daftest of all the mini rigs.

What are you trying to say that you don't believe he's using the force! :)
