NOTE: I don't lube or adjust cubes prior to review. I believe they should be judged on their "out of the box" experience.
Wasn't quite sure what to expect with this cube but found myself mostly enjoying it. The LanLan is tougher to turn than I expect from modern puzzles but it's not TOUGH - just not on the level of, say, a Qiyi Skewb or similar. It's a tough solve and fun to use. Given the limited options for a master skewb - why the heck aren't there more of these out there? - if you're looking to get one, the LanLan is the one to get.

LanLan Master Skewb
This puzzle would easily have gotten a 5 star if it weren't for the stickers. It is essentially a rex cube with corners, so if you can solve a rex cube, you have a decent head start on this puzzle. It is a hard solve, and it turns well enough (I would expect it to be speedsolvable). But the stickers are peeling after a few hours of use, and many were poorly placed (even hanging off the pieces) from the moment I took it out of the box. It is a shame that such a good puzzle is marred by low-quality stickers. I'm only taking a star off for the stickers though because they are replaceable, and the rest of the puzzle is fantastic.

If you have $14 you should be handing it over to cubedepot for this puzzle. Every skewb deserves this big brother as a companion. The puzzle turns well and looks great. It has great weight giving it a sturdy feel and the size is perfect, not to mention the solving experience is great. Creating algorithms and commutators is a blast. Harder than a skewb and the corners add that extra challenge over a rex cube. A real beauty and a much beloved puzzle in my opinion, and ive been collecting for 8 years. Do yourself a favor and enjoy a master skewb!
