A mine is too easy, it opens itself when you hit the pin...

(Note: Shauns issue is a postal issue, not a revo issue. Lucky for the revo, unlucky for Shaun)

Yes unfortunately it was a postal error. A mix up with my adress and postcode has resulted in the parcel being returned to Chris :(

That HM looks amazing. The logo is pretty awesome too. I remember finding out about the HM's (before I joined the forum) a week after they had all been sold. Is the difficulty of the HM still 120 out of 100?

Currently I'd say the map proves less difficult than the Silver. however i got my HM last night and spent some time with her. this morning my entire thumb ached so bad that i almost couldn't turn the key in my car to get to work.

I wouldn't say the HM is difficult, but it is damn intense.

I think its a better HM design than a Lime design, so I think it worked out alright. I'm sure a new lime design will come along eventually.

If I may be so bold - I'd put the HM well in the 120+ rating range.

It was not initially difficult to explore but it got progressive worse ... and extremely time consuming and brutally unforgiving. Based alone on the unforgiving nature of the HM, it warrants this high rating.

I know I will not re-assemble mine.

Ha! Understatement! I feel that rating this puzzle is extremely difficult. because it is considerably easier to find the solution than the silver, but also considerably more difficult to open.

if that makes any sense at all.

MJ & others that have completed the HM: where does the HM rank in favorites? which did you like more?
