i.e. My cubes were bought from just a magnet place. They are slightly larger than Bucky's and they cost a good bit more.
Were yours more expensive because they are made of a different material with a high Gauss strength. The Buckyballs don't show any technical specs that I could find.
The other more expensive ones I have seen are very high Gauss.
