I'm just curious: what kinds of mutant cubes (2x2x3, 3x3x2, 4x4x2...) do any of you make?

Yes, I am the seller. I had some extra parts so I thought I would try and make one of these since I saw it on the VPM. It didn't have a name, so I gave it the best thing I could think of.

Although I do not have too many puzzles yet (much less make any!) I would like info on how to make this 2x3x4 puzzle. I mainly need to know what material is best to fuse the Revenge cubes, where to get it, how to apply it, etc. I can probably manage the tiles/stickers myself. Thanks!

If your 3x3x5 puzzle basically extra pieces glued on to the outsides of a standard 3x3x3, basically giving it the same solution with a bunch of really bizarre shapes in the process, or are all 5 layers fully functional? L8r.

I've kicked around the idea of trying to build one using acrylic cubes as a base similar to what tyler suggested. what r u using for an internal mechanism?

I'm casting from an original octahedron so it's original pieces. The internal is a block, not a true 3x3x3 although they do operate in a very similar manner.
