Ingredients: 1 Rubiks 3x3, 1 dissasembled "Scoop" ( A plastic digger toy that my son had and broke ), 2 lots of milliput superfine white, 2xlids from cartons of "5 Alive" juice, 3xexpired dremel sanding cylinders, superglue, some aluminium look plastic for use in model railways, yellow, silver and black model paint, printed photocard paper and a segment of dead usb cable :)

Tools: Saw, Dremel, General sculpting tools, sandpaper, brushes, printer and a lot of patience..

The arms are posable, the head also has some movement, so no turns are blocked (I think). Now that I've finally assembled him, I can attempt a solve from a full scramble so we'll see if any turns are blocked by arms, head, or tracks.

This build is not mechanically complex, as it's just a sculpted extension to the 3x3, but it took a lot of time and patience.

I'll try to get a video up sometime today.

Enjoy..

This puzzle is fantastic (I expected a picture cube when I saw the title) - I like the way the head/arms can move to allow different twists.
If it's original perhaps you could do a deal with McDonalds or Burger King - like the Sponge Bob Puzzle. :)

One of the coolest 3x3 mods I've ever seen! By far probably the coolest mod I've seen that still functions exactly like a 3x3. ;)

Having had a brief play it looks every bit as good, if not better, in real life than on your screens.

Well done mate :D
