Three spherical 3D ball maze puzzles

Check this assemblage of 3D puzzles. With all three puzzles the idea is to rotate the sphere such that gravity pulls the small enclosed ball through loops, tracks, corners, walls, and around the various pitfalls of the 3 dimension maze. They look pretty challenging/fun to me.

The Superplexus is, indeed, a fascinating dexterity puzzle. I was lucky enough to get a bunch of them on clearance about 5 years ago.

Looking at these pictures, the other two look functionally identical to the Superplexus (and the wikipedia and related pages suggest they are the same, with the middle one maybe being the unlicensed knock-off).

Anyway, it's a lot of fun and fairly challenging, if you can track one down.
