Hello,
As shown in this topic : http://twistypuzzles.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=21818
I built this cube:

4x4x4 bandaged as 2x4x4 - How to swap 2 corners
4x4x4 bandaged - From Wall cube to Burr cube in only 25 moves.

I can bandaged it with 2x4 or 4x4 tiles.
So It gives many possibilities for bandage versions.

All of them already existed but not in the same puzzle. This one is "all in one".

This post isn't to show it again.
My question is : is it a new puzzle ?
Is it just a simple version with tiles or a new 4x4x4 wich afford new possibilities : all bandaged versions can be done.

If "no", why ?
If "yes", I'm glad to introduce you the 4x4x4 WFTiles.

Since nobody has presented an optionally bandagable 4x4x4 yet => It is new.
After I made the 3x3x3-version I considered the 4x4x4 as well but never realised it.

By the way:
Can you post a non-blurry image?
And one with the tiles beside it?
One with a good-looking configuration?
One with ... ?

Nice! Haha you should customize it with funny pieces like in redkb's video. There's a lot of opportunity when it comes to legos and putting them on cubes is genius. If the Lego company can figure out some way to make triangular legos the Lego Pyraminx will be done in no time. :D

Oh and one more thing to add - since the pieces look sort of similar already with a little sanding and black paint you could make the bandaged pieces look like the pieces around it - even harder to solve as you can't plan out which axes (plural of axis? I think?) are bandaged. Just a thought.

Good images.
I assume the tiles are rounded by hand?
Does that improve the turnability?

Of course, otherwise they block each other and the cube can't be turned.
I just noticed that after gluing, so I had to round them one by one.
Tiles for bandaged versions ( 2x4 and 4x4) were rounded 8 by 8.

Now, it turns as good as the 4x4x4 without sticker.
