This is something I threw together really quickly using some glossy white card and hot glue.

I'd really like to make another one of these at some point (perhaps using acrylic squares with magnets attached, so that each of the sides can be assembled into the cube shape like we see in The War Games.)

Kind regards, The14thDr

Yeah, I could do that. But then that would be no different and no better than the card version I already have (aside from being a bit sturdier.) Having a second version with separate sides - like I explained above - would allow me to assemble and disassemble the cube whenever I want, just like we saw in the show.

EDIT: Okay, now that is strange. The comment I was replying to appears to have disappeared. ???

The original prop was made of bath tiles glued together.  ;D

What dimensions is the cube? just so i can get more accurate.

The14thDr

My cube is 3 inches along each side - I can't comment for sure on the size of the original prop, but by comparing mine to screenshots from the episode it seems about right.

Nice collection there, where (may I ask) did you get your policeman? I've been after one for years.
I love the Yetti controllers too, did you make them or ... are they originals?

Hi Chris
The police man I got from eBay, thought it was a nice nod to the first episode and the yeti is one of mine and one I bought.
