It looks almost exactly like an 8-color "Equator" puzzle, but has a different mechanism. Not only are there the 30 sliding pieces, but the 8 "corners" can also move like the "Rubik pocket cube" (2x2x2). Because of this extra mechanism, it becomes much more like a Rubik puzzle and less like a sliding tile puzzle.
If you are interested, this puzzle is for sale at http://www.mozaika.com
They sell the puzzle as a put-together kit for somewhere around $30 (depending on which kit you purchase). I can't tell you how they do business or how the puzzle is assembled because I purchased mine elsewhere already assembled.
So far, I've only been able to solve about half of the Mozaika puzzle. I would have to consider this my most difficult Rubik-type puzzle that I have encountered (although I don't have a bandaged cube yet).
Another interesting thing about the Mozaika puzzle is that all of the pieces are molded of colored plastic. All "edge" pieces are 2 colors and all "center" pieces are 4 colors. I'm not sure how they accomplish this without making the puzzle much more expensive. I often thought that it would be great if this could be done with the 3x3x3 Rubik's cube (no stickers or tiles to worry about, just solid plastic cubies).
