I know there are a few more mods out there but I want to know your opinion between these three only. :)

All three! The regular dodecahedron came first, I think, followed by the rhombic one and then the cuboctahedron.

I checked all three with the Museum and could find the Cubeoctahedron, only.

Can you provide more information, please?

No idea, what I have done wrong with the Museum Quick Search :oops:
I swear I had found the Cuboctahedron, only and copied the words from this thread.

Anyway, here are all three links

Master Skewb Kite
http://www.twistypuzzles.com/cgi-bin/pu ... ?pkey=1897
Master Skewb Ultimate
http://www.twistypuzzles.com/cgi-bin/pu ... ?pkey=1907
Master Skewb Cubeoctahedron
http://www.twistypuzzles.com/cgi-bin/pu ... ?pkey=3199

I voted for the dodecahedron shape.

@Claus: Thanks!
Maybe, I would have chosen the Master Skweb Ultimate instead of the 4x4x4 dodecahedron viewtopic.php?f=14&t=12766&p=303031#p303031 (as a puzzle memory from you.)
You make way too many puzzles :lol: and I had not remembered this one. :)
The Master Skewb provides a more unusual challenge than the 4x4x4.

Konrad was to quick with his answer.
I usually do not search for names but for combinations of section and mechanism. That habit steems from the time when the search engine couldn't cope with special characters.

You could not find it because Cubeoctahedron is incorrect. It is spelt Cuboctahedron. :D

You are right about my spelling error. I did not matter, though, because I had copied and pasted the words into the "Quick Search".
So, the Cuboctahedron was actually the one I had found before my first post here.
If I read Andreas' post correctly, he has changed something in the Museum in parallel.
