Hi guys,

I designed the following puzzle about a week ago, along with my Circle Pentagonal Prism. It was printed by Karl-Heinz (Incredible). Enjoy!

I've been wondering when a Floppy Megaminx was ever going to be made. It looks great! Along with the Cirlce Pentagonal Prism.

Okamato made a floppy megaminx over a year ago. I like this version better though. The curved cuts give it a nice touch! :)

The general public can't see his puzzles anymore because he didn't want them to become knock offs. He did build it though, as well as a hexagonal floppy prism, if i recall correctly.

I have also designed a Circle Pentagonal Prism a few weeks ago, but didn't have the time to build it. Nicely done!

Floppies with an odd number of edges are always cool because corners can flip.
