Wow! These look great! Other than ebay, where can you get them? The flower is basically a kilominx, right?

I'm sorry for my mistake in subject. I forgot to add the Globall puzzle to the pic. The pic shows in principle the Globall family without father. Only Globall's modifications.

If you take the blue and yellow trianges off the Barrel...
Image
do you get the Metamorfix?
Image

And is this the solved state of the Logic Star?
Image
Not the choice I'd pick... I think I'd make it a Great Stellated Dodecahedron and have the 5 triangles in each plane one color. Anyone going to re-sticker one of these and make the points even pointier? This would make it a better match to Alexander's Star as it is a Great Dodecahedron.

If you add floating edges to the "Flower" modification, you end up with a brilic/pyraminx crystal?

This is the original isn't it?

What does the solved state look like? Looks like it could be stickered to turn it into an Alexander's Star.

I pity the person who tries to sticker the GloBall. This puzzle is TINY. You can easily fit it on top of a 3x3x3, with room to spare.

Wow, i just figured out how a pyraminx crystal worked by looking at the flower. That is the most clever idea, i never would have thought of "floating edges". I hope i can get one someday. :(

Isn't the Globall made from modified Dogic internal parts in different colors? Also
I do not understand the strange coloring scheme for the Globall series, especially the Star. Where can these be purchased? PS. the Flower can be made into a mini Pyraminx Crystal, right? (that would be really cool)

Very interesting shape modifications. Am I correct in thinking that the "Flower" could be turned into a small Pyraminx Crystal?

I'm pretty sure it could be. If someone does it, I want to know how well it works out!
