So, do they have to be a certain color, or can you just go crazy with em?

It is technically a cube, but you can also do any geometrical shape you choose, like a sphere.

A white lever base. Or maybe if you're doing cuban with a twist (like evil cuban) you can use other colors of disc (In this case, it's red)

Also use your creativity and think of something else!

Hello guys. This cubetastic wave got me to.
I've built my Cuban already, and I'll probably post it in next two days.

I made a Cuban but I can't upload it yet due to lack of non-phone camera. also does it have to be completely flat on top (not counting hats) or can it have hair texture and/or studs?

It can have a bit of texture. ;)

Hey all! Like so many others I've been bit by the Cuban bug!!! :-) hoping to post soon. Someone said these are the next cubedudes and I agree, they are awesomely creative and easy enough for anyone's building level. Which begs the question Owen, have you contacted the Lego group? This could be a potential gold mind for you!! Thanks for introducing us to your infectious Cubans!! ~cheers

It is currently on LEGO Cuusoo, but, alas, only has a few supporters. :/ I should bring them to a convention, maybe spread the word around. ;)

Ok. So I went to Lego CUUSOO, and saw what you meant. The support on the pages alone is enough to warrant more advertising and exposure. I would try and contact moc pages admin and see what they think as well as any other site for Lego and push the cuusoo vote angle. It couldn't hurt. I might also think of changing the spelling to "Cubin" or something along those lines as not to offend the Cuban ethnicity, but hey these are just my opinions. I think you've created something with a very broad appeal which is exactly what Lego wants. I mean everyone can have fun making these, any age group, boys and girls. Anyway just some thoughts. Keep up the good work and good luck! If you need any help or advice, please just ask.
