Here it is!

When you get accustomed to it, doesn't look so intimidating...

Here with his new friend:

OK OK, I just wanted to be the first one posting a picture of an human-like cuboid :? :? :?

It is actually the nice fully functional 2x3x5 cuboid made by Clay n Eva Creations ( http://hstrial-certley.homestead.com/2x3x5.html )

Image

As a puzzle, I am finding it much more difficult to solve than I expected. Although 2x2x3, 3x3x2, 3x3x4, 3x3x5 cuboids are relatively easy and similar each other, the outer 2x3 layers of this cuboid are a pain to solve (well, actually I didn´t by now)

I specially like its 'extreme' shape shifting, sometimes it looks impossible that all the pieces are joined to the same core

Despite this, the overall movement is good. The inner 3x3x2 core moves as well as a mass production domino. The outer 2x3 layers, handled with care, also move OK (not for speedcubing anyway :) )

Awesome! It does look quite 'unstable' when it changes shape drastically.
