Looks like you've also got the 4D NYC puzzle as well. SkyscraperPage did the graphics for the poster that is included with that.

Yes, I know that. It is funny that they used a Google Sketchup model for the Bankers Trust, and Whithall Building

Hello everyone,

I have a big "skyline" of Puzz 3Ds, I can put the pictures on soon. Sadly, when Hasbro bought Puzz 3D from Wrebbit, inc. in 2005, a year later they stopped making it. The demand is tremendous thus raising the prices over 6 times on what they used to be. I remembered that I bought the Empire State Building (Towers to Scale) for $20, now they sell it on ebay for more than $100. The NY-NY puzzle that I bought last year (and still making it), I bought for a "cheap" $150 when they were $50. I was lucky since some NY-NY puzzles were selling for $250.

The Puzz 3Ds I have are:
The time next to the building name is how long it took me.

Towers to scale:
-Sears Tower (2 weeks)
-Empire State Building (2 days)
-Chrysler Building (1 day)
-John Hancock Center (1 day)
-Citigroup Center (1 day)
-US Bank Tower (2 days)
-Transamerica Pyramid (2 days)
-Burj Al Arab (2 days)
-Taipei 101 (1 week)
-Met Life Tower (3 hours)
-SunAmerica Center (2 days)
-Tribune Tower (2 hours)
-American Radiator Building (1 hour)
-Flatiron Building (1 hour)

Other Puzz 3Ds I have:
-US Capitol Building (1 day)
-Notre Dame (1 day)
-NY-NY (Under-Construction)
-CN Tower (1 week)

Towers to Scales that I don't have and REALLY want:
-Bank of China Tower (Might take me 2 days)
-Central Plaza (Might take me 2 days)
-Petronas Towers (Might take me 3 days)

I've had this puzzle for a couple of years or more, yet mine still sits in a box.

At least someone puts it to use...

Cubic Fun makes inexpensive 3D Puzzles of world architecture including most NYC towers, Colosseum, Petronas Towers,Golden Gate Bridge, Vatican City, Big Ben, Sydney Opera House, Sears Tower, Eiffel Tower, US White House and Capitol. I just completed the Burj Khalifa over 5 ft. tall. The models are quite accurate but the instructions are unclear so a 5-hour puzzle could take me over 15 hours. No glue or pain required. They also make Titanic at 3 ft. long as well as a Space Shuttle. I need more space to display.

Question Is there a fee to Puzz3D?

I was always curious if model /puzzle-makers must pay a fee for selling a model or puzzle of the building in question? If so, let's say they make a model of the new 1 World Trade Center. Must a commission be paid to the architect, his company or to the building-owner? Must a commission be paid if a model of Queen Mary is produced? Is Puzz 3D given the plans? Does Boeing get paid when a Boeing 747 model is sold? Just curious. I once read that each building has a design-copyright.

I have a Puzz 3D from Wrebbit with the Washington DC Capitol Building. The model is from 1995, I have it since 1997. Due to the lack of space, I keep it in box wall by wall. If I remember corectly it's about 1,5 meter long, at least 40cm high and 30-40cm in depth. 718 pieces.

Puzz 3D vs. Cubic Fun 3D

To me, the Cubic Fun Puzzles are more accurate-looking. and cheaper in price. Cubic Fun has many recent skyscrapers (Burj, Petronas, World Trade). My biggest problem is I am running out of space to display these. I live in a small apartment.

I've got about eight puzz 3d skyscrapers. Lovingly built and displayed during 2000-2005. Boxed away upon getting married and moving. still boxed, alas. Gonna give them to my son and daughter when they get older.
