I made two easiest mods.

One is normally Domino (3x3x2), but made by mirror silver and mirror gold.
(not stuck any stickers yet)
Other is Super Square-1's Star Prism, but I stuck David Star stickers on the star sides.

These are only changed part's color or stickers. X-)

Hidetoshi,

Did you use the Fisher method for making the Domino? That is a very clean, straight build.

Yes, I used Fisher's cuboid method to the Domino. :)
I don't have the technique to make original inner mechanisms. X-)

Looks like golden and silver 3x3 cubies to me. Those are available on C4Y or 9S as a type B DIY, I think.

I really like both of the puzzles. You certainly are a master at making existing designs fresh and new.


I have an interesting idea for the domino: Use rhinestones to make the "pips" (number dots) for the domino.

I think that would make it look like a million dollars (or 107,573,150 Yen). 8-)

I'll buy some rhinestones, and finish the Domino at once. X-D

I finished the shining Domino with rhine stones.
I selected a little large blue for silver side, and little small pink for golden side.

Adam, that was an excellent idea. And who else could be better to realise it than Hidetoshi-san?
I would love to do a trade for one of those Dominos if you ever make more.
My eyes went bling-bling when I saw that!!!

They both look great. I like the jewelled gold/silver Domino the best. The rhinestones look brilliant.

Going off topic, I recently discovered a picture of your Megaminx Diamond Triacontahedron ( I was actually searching for something completely different). I thought it looked amazing. I'm going to try building one sometime.
