This is a very strange puzzle.

I mixed it up and stickered it.

In this state, the orange, green, and white faces are locked, as the 3 points on the yellow face force the middle one to be turned from there first.

A half turn is not possible on the red face now, as when turned either way, it will snap into place and I will have to turn the orange or blue side first, to remove the middle point.

The locking mechanism was very hard to make.

I have solved it twice, and it is quite challenging. :D

I really like these mods you are doing. At least you are posting pictures now. I'm sure many people are happy you are.

Looks like a awesome puzzle. Why couldn't you cut all of the edge cubies in half? To delicate for the structure?

I like your mods too, but I would really like to see a video of some of these cubes, like the Anti-Canny cube for example. I want to see how they turn and if its worth making them myself.
