Hi, here is the pics of my new skewb mod, the one i had at DCD last week end.
I named it Monster Skewb, i build it on rush for the DCD, so it's a bit crappy not clean..the stickers, the paint was even not totally dry.

I like how you really developed your own style.
And yes, love the hat. :-)

That is superior to all modern art forever. It's a beast though, you must have to shove it to turn it! It's enormous! :U

On the first photo you can see the bubbles in the reflection - but not on the puzzle itself.

I like it - it would need a shelf of its own :)

I was talking to Lee Tutt on the DCD, and when he saw Frederic walk with the scrambled monster skewb he said: 'You don't want to fall over while holding that spikey thing!'
