Hi,

this is my so far last week at the coast of the baltic sea and before wrapping my household into several cardboard boxes I finished stickering for this batch of puzzles.
As far as I know, only one has already been made. Guess which?

See also my comments on every picture.
Enjoy.

Ah yes, I see it now. I don't really know what shape you would call the 1x1 on the left then.

Like them... :D Those all look like very dangerous puzzles, they look almost razor sharp. You could totally cut someone with one of those. :lol:

The middle set all seem to be truncated Fisher Cubes.
The 2nd one in the sequence is my favourite. Would this one be the equivalent to a truncation of John Lin's (KPG) Giant Fisher Cube?

The rhombohedrons look excellent, particularly the Mastermorphix type mod on the right.
I think the 2x2x2 version is the one that's been made before - I think I've seen a picture of one somewhere else.

I'm hoping to have enough spare time to make at least one more mod before the year ends.

At least someone who tried an answer.
You are right with your guess about the 2x2x2 TrigonalTrapezohedron. I saw that one looong ago but now I can delete it from my list!
BTW: Your favourite is my fifth 5sided 3x3x3.
The "sharpEdges" have nothing to do with modding Fisher cubes of any size. The attached ones belong into this group, too. And the "Cheops Cube" as well.

I like the "another Triangular prism" most, :)
I had made a "3x3x3 Rhombohedron" too, :D
