oohhhhh, so the parts you bought for one cube-the borg cube-came with more than enough parts, which is why it costed so much for one, right?

Got it in one. I've still got three-quarters of both cans of spray paint left.  I only used about a third of a sheet of plasticard (pack came with 3 sheets).  I'm nearly full for paint, only low on silver and white (about £1.25 - £2 each).  The tubing is nearly full.  I had to buy tools that I can re-use such as a scalpel and blades and a box to store the stuff in, all of which I'll re-use, and my glue is nearly full. I still need cubes, but thanks to [url=http://www.gaminglagoon.com/?ref=341730]gaming lagoon[/url] that'll be free next time!

'Got it in one.'

and i might try freecycle, a group that you can get stuff for free as well.
as for gaming lagoon, how do you get the free cubes?

Got it in one - means you've got it totally correct.

Ok.  not heard of freecycle.

Gaming Lagoon is easy.

First set up a disposable email address - aol, hotmail, yahoo, gmail etc.

Next click on this link to go to [url=http://www.gaminglagoon.com/?ref=341730]GamingLagoon[/url] and it'll also credit me as your referrer.

Register with them.  Use your real details or they'll ship your stuff to the wrong place.

Click on Available offers.  Set it to free ones and ignore anything with a download or purchase requirement.  I mostly pick offers with questionnaires or a buttload of offers to say no to.

Once you've met the offer criteria - usually signing  up for their wonderful collection of spam - they credit your gaming lagoon account with the points (this can take up to 7 days).  You can abandon the email address when you've got what you want anyway!

Do as many offers as you want, and try to sign others up as well as you get a bonus (ya think I'm plugging this for the good of my health!![;)] )

When the points get high enough, look at the available prizes.

I registered last week, earned 15.31 so far, spent 10 on an eastsheen 4x4x4.  I'm owed about another 18. Points can be spent on cubes, games, console accessories and anything you can afford from ebay thats on buy it now.

Enjoy.
