Hey Everyone,

Here's my Dino Rhombic Dodecahedron which I purchased from Bedard Puzzles when the website was running. It would love a new home. Please PM me if you are interested.

Did Scott make these or someone else? I only ask because I have one exactly like it that Dave made and my memory is fading.

If I remember right, there were two Rhombic Dodecahedrons offered on Scott's Website, but I don't know if both of them were DRDs.
One of them was offered by Andrew Cormier with black body fully assembled or as a DIY (which was the option I chose).

Drew didn't offer a white body version, so the actual DRD is probably not made by him. Unfortunately I don't know who the other builder was.

I received mine (black) from Drewseph directly, I don't know if he made any in white to be sold through Scott's site or if Scott might have cast them himself.

My memory may be playing tricks on me, but I believe Drewseph offered both white and black versions of the DRD on Berdardpuzzles, the same way he did with his Master Skewb. I seem to recall asking myself whether my preference for black puzzles was strong enough to justify the extra waiting time, as white puzzles were usually given priority in being shipped out first. ;) Also, the white version of his puzzles were usually offered at a higher price than the black version, due to longer curing times of the white resin (as Drewseph mentioned here and here). I believe most people went with the black version (at least this was the case according to Konrad's statsitics for the Master Skewb), so if the DRD being offered here was made by Drewseph, it might be one of the few white ones in existence. :)

Thank you everyone for your thoughts. The full details I remember are -> ordering this puzzle in white from Bedardpuzzles.com, white was more expensive so requested to assemble and sticker the puzzle myself.

But after reading recent comments I seem to remember -> Two DRD being offered on Bedardpuzzles.com. Drewseph's was in black and near the top of the page, whereas Scott's DRD was mid-page -> and offered in white and black and that's why I purchased Scott's b/c at this time I was collecting mostly white puzzles.

Does anyone remember the price of the DRD as offered on bedardpuzzles.com? How rare and valuable is this puzzle today?
