Hi everyone,

This is my latest puzzle mod. I call it the Evil Hexagonal Dipyramid. The puzzle was made from (2) Type A DIY Kits that were made into an Evil Twin. From there it was cut down to a Hexagonal Dipyramid. The pieces were filled with Smooth Cast 300. All of stickers were hand cut (except for the centers) from Oracal Vinyl. (one of the main reasons why I am looking for a vinyl cutter, for those of you who saw my post in the Puzzle Building Forum recently). I have added quite a few pictures. Some of the building process and some in its finished form. The video of the puzzle has been added as well. I hope you enjoy.

(oh, the video is a little cheezy at the beginning :) )

:shock: So it looks like Tony came to the rescue firing his balls to take down the evil! Yay! Lets see how he holds up against the evil 5x5x5 version.

Very nice! I like white puzzles.

The intro to your video was really great! It made me laugh a lot :D

I wonder when we'll see the Axis of Evil? :lol:

If Tony's Balls are the only things capable of defeating Evil Puzzles, would we all be doomed if one of the Evil Puzzles successfully evolved into a Evil Ball?

I posted a link to your video on Twitter. I got in response, "I will punch someone in the throat if they ever give me something like that."

I think it looks amazingly intimidating. Good work.

Great puzzle!

I promise not to punch anyone in the throat if this is given to me!

I have yet to dabble in the realm of evil twins. I look forward to trying it out in the future.

Thank-you everyone for the kind words. I didn't expect such a response from the forum, thank-you.

Thank-you I am happy they turned out the way they did. But in the time it takes me to hand cut stickers I could probably build another puzzle and not feel like my hands are going to explode.

I thought so too but I know of at least one more that I have in the works, maybe two. :wink:

I especially liked the video; maybe we can continue the story?


Thank-you, I hope to continue the story in another video as well. It was silly, but fun to make.

NICE IDEA, I love it. After I finish my Axis Cube (and a few others in the works) that would be a very cool idea to make. Insane, but fun.

Even if this happens we all know that Tony's Balls are strong enough to defend the world from Evil. :lol:

Thanks again everyone.
