Megaminx sphere custom mod.
Puzzle started out as a standard ball.b puzzle. The puzzle was disassembled and cleaned of any burs or imperfections. The puzzle pieces were then subjected to a custom dying process to turn the plastic into the classic black we all know. This process is permanent and wont rub off or scuff the plastic has been re-colored not painted. Then an industrial pvc safe silicone lube was applied to the inner moving parts. stickers were hand drawn and then machine cut from top of the line sticker material with very strong adhesive backing so these stickers wont come off or ware easily.
The first megaminx in shape of a sphere was made by Jürgen Brandt back in the nineties. He had to sand down a megaminx since mass produced sphere-shaped megaminxes were not available back then.
The second image shows a version made by Traiphum Prungtaengkit. He actually truncated another megaminx.
In 2008 similar mass produced variants (named Ball.B) hit the market. See their respective entries.
