Hmm, I'm confused. Fixing the BL column of the left 2x2x3 (in the first picture) should restrict its movement to just F2 and L2. Similarly the other 2x2x3 should have only B2 and R2 as possible moves. I can't imagine how you got that shape in the second picture. What am I missing? Also, why is the yellow sticker on the bottom right larger than the blue sticker next to it despite being further from the camera?

In regards to the sticker, its not smaller - some of it is hidden by a shadow, due to the internal shape of the extra cubies (I didnt fill them in). You can just about see this on the larger image.

I didnt know how to explain the movement of the cubies, so I made a small movie, showing how to make the position in pic2:

2x2x3 movie

Hope this explains it,

Nicky, perhaps you could have stickered internal cubies as well. That would have made solving the puzzle even more confusing. 8-) Now you can see all these black cubies, and immediately understand that they should go inside the puzzle.

I think so - Ive not used it for years. I found it when clearing stuff out my room - google-d it, and found that its worth a little bit :D

I have one lying around aswell my ex and I collected them. But that one was cool just because one of the special angel you could get them to grow into was a big pile of poop with eyes

ah - I just thought you meant getting the angelgotchi to do one 8-)

Never had one with eyes! Had it doing weights before though, after it ran away offscreen, and I tapped it so it would reappear.

Ah, ok. So it's really not a Siamese 2x2x3 (which would btw be pretty boring) like the title suggests but only looks that way when solved. You should call it "Evil Siamese 2x2x3" ;-)

That fused 2x2x3 is just a few extended cubies short of being a mini evil twin. By the way I think Cubesmith sells eastsheen 2x2x2 mini stickers in case anyone is looking for replacements.

It was made using the leftovers from when I made my mini-evil twin a while back. Its also got the cubesmith stickers on it, they look great.

Have to say its fun to play with, its a little easier than the twin (mines been left unsolved since the day after i made it!).
