If you are thinking about buying this, just get the Shengshou one, it will turn so much better and be less expensive. With this puzzle, I was disappointed with it out of the box. The "flower petal" center pieces catch and pop off all over the place. So I used scissors and cut them from being a "U" shape, to a "V" shape (if you look at those pieces from the back, the plastic is thick where the "V" is, and there are "wing" like protrusions that I just cut off. The pic is how they look after the mod). This makes it so they don't catch or pop. If you care about the looks of the puzzle though, you might want to do this a different way, in order to get smooth, clean cuts. Next I pulled a piece or two out so that I could lube the puzzle, and after all of this it was SOO much better! Still not "speed cubable" or anything but usable for sure. If you have one already, that's how you can make it good, otherwise, just get the Shengshou one.

MF8 Master Kilominx
This Puzzle turns pretty rough. You are not able to figure trick it. You hear clicking sounds from pieces snapping against each other. The center caps sometimes pop off the dodecahedron. It is nice for a collection, but doesn't provide any real challenge. As for the looks: There is a Mf8 Logo on EVERY center piece. 5x12= 60 logos. The stickers are dull and you can see through them on most sides so Mf8 is literally everywhere. I am not a fan of this. The only reason I like this puzzle is because I love the megaminx.

I own the stickerless but it is identical to the stickered, they share the same strengths and weaknesses. The biggest pro is that it is a master kilominx, the only 4x4 minx mass produced and available. However the centers catch on each other and this slowly prys them up and they will either fly off or at the least you will have to push them back down, it isnt too frequent nor is it a huge deal, the turning is average but do not expect to speedsolve it as a layer wont turn with the flick of a finger even with lube to lesson friction and it does not cut corners. If a better option of the same puzzle ever comes out expect the rating to become a 3, until then I still think a collector or solver should definitely get one, the solve is a bit more unique compared to other minx puzzles as it is the only even order one (the kilominx isnt counted to me because no parity errors can occur, which would add difficulty and change up solving it).
