We have been prepared this cube for more than half year. This cube turns smooth, in pillow shape with 8-armed ball core. Thanks for the brilliant design of Traiphum.
PS: the 8-armed ball core also fits for modifying the mosaic cube.

As most of puzzle friends prefer black and white, we shall have the traditional black and white bodies. Besides, we have 2 limited editions, blue and 5 solid color.

We are currently talking to our worldwide business partners about the pre-wholesales orders. If anyone in the puzzles business and interested to be our oversea partners, feel free to contact me at calvinfan@hknowstore.com .
We would like most of our partners made their pre-wholesales orders and have the cubes in stock first. Then, we set a lucky date to officially release it to the market.

It's not just a platypus, it's a tetrahedral, pillowed platypus. Plus, the core works to modify the Mosaic Cube to work better, so I may as well get 2!! Or maybe Calvin can just sell the cores so that we're not throwing away half of a perfectly good puzzle...

Awesome. I'm buying one (eventually). One question though: is this puzzle possible non-pillowed?

Maybe you could just switch their cores... Would that work?

I'm pretty sure HKnowstore sells the cores, here I just found the link.

Yes, I like Traiphum's design and works too.

Platypus has similar concept but in different shape.

The curvy stickers on the pillow surface of Dinomorphix is hard to affix, but beautiful. We are working hard on the stickering works now. Hope to release it soon.
Cheers. ^^

Thank you Calvin, other way for easier stickering is no stiacker but paint instead.

Calvin has sent me a stickerless version of this puzzle so I can make an advertisement video for him. I'm always glad to help him and Taiphum!

The puzzle is now available here.
I received a fully stickered version today and uploaded an unboxing and review video here
Now I don't really solve puzzles any more I like it's simplicity. I was able to solve it quite quickly intuitively.
