The other day, my Alexander star's sticker was removed.
Then I need to make stickers, I think to make other color variation.

I finished to 12 vertices color variation.
It's not to seem Alexander star's shape. :D

I want to finish it not to have parity error, but when I arrange it, I found a parity error. It can arrange to mirror, but there is a parity error. :(

BTW, Does anyone make this variation ?

That looks awesome and also I know I could solve that 1 a whole lot easier than the original. This is the only other mod or color scheme I know about.

I bought it at D.I.Y shop and mail order, but sorry, the site sells only in Japan.
But I think, perhaps mail order site exists at any countries.

How does everyone get them ?

For vinyl stickers in the US, just look in the yellow pages for a sign making shop. Ask them for scrap pieces of vinyl in various colors. For a few bucks you'll have a stack of perfectly good scraps that will last you forever.

I love it. It's the way Alexander's Star should have been from the beginning.

I also agree, that pattern makes better sense than the original for eye and brain comfort when solving.
