ID these Rubix's cubes (and other puzzles)?

Is there any place on the internet where I can buy Rubix's cube variants and similar, non-cube puzzles? In particular, I'm looking for the silver architectural-looking cube at bottom center, the grabby-hands cube in the top-right corner, and the flat twisty picture-puzzle (two different pictures are possible and the plastic pieces are wired together in a certain way) on the right side of this photo.

Best answer: The silver cube at the bottom is called a mirror cube, and there's a bunch of them on Amazon -- it's just cube-shaped when it's turned correctly.

Best answer: I think the flat twisty picture-puzzle is Rubik's Magic.

Best answer: And I'm pretty sure the 'grabby hands" one is Meffert's gear cube.

FYI, there is one that I saw the other day that is a modification to the Rubik's style.

It is a like a Rubik's cube with number dials.

And that's a Pyraminx on the left.

FYI, Jaap's Puzzle Page has a pretty amazing database of all these puzzles which can be fun to explore.
