Well guys I am coming out of hiding and I have another new puzzle on the way. Unfortunately I really shouldn't have spent the money, and this one, and probably not any of my future puzzles will be on Shapeways.

Anyways enough of that, here is the picture, now someone guess what it is. I dare you.

If no one guesses correctly I will post another picture soon, this one is kind of impossible to determine anything from sooooo.... :mrgreen:

ok i couldn't wait, I kind of want this one to be guessed, here is the next picture, a little easier maybe.

This one might give it away, just maybe.

I will also say this one has a close relative on Gelatinbrain.

I'm trying to figure this one out Muffet, but I honestly have no idea. :lol: Maybe the hints seem obvious to you because you made the puzzle but I can't seem to tell what it is.

Inever thought Obvious. :lol:

Well I am not going to just give it away :roll:

but I will upload the next picture, this is the last one I made, and this one should pretty much give it away, if someone doesn't figure it out I will be surprised, and I might have to make some more pictures then. :D

:mrgreen:

I knew someone would get it with that picture, yes, that is the closest relative to the puzzle on gelatinbrain.
The only difference is mine has different scaling with some pieces. I would have made it look more identical, but I only checked gelatinbrain after I bought it. :lol:

Hint: this is NOT a Master Pentultimate that behaved badly and printed naked ladies on its stickers.

I thought the same thing, but inside the blur, there does appear to be some coloring, so maybe not?

Oh I so wish I could say something right now. But I'll pass on that and say something about equating a void to a naked lady just doesn't sound right. At least I'm glad the first of these was called the void cube and not the hole cube. Not that this is one of those...

Do I really want to sign this post?

Void is too easy a guess, and I see some color in there.

Perhaps a master pentultimate where you removed part of the centers, showing inner/hidden/layered pieces, which you stickered to make a tougher challenge?

No, Tom, the Master Pentultimate didn't print naked lady stickers, you did. :lol:


ON A MORE SERIOUS note, perhaps it allows for jumbling moves? Is this conceivable?

I know what it is, so I'll keep my mouth shut, other than to say that I can't wait to see real pictures of this one stickered. It's going to look so cool!

This is my guess too.. what's the next shell down, a pyraminx crystal?

I knew that particular meme, but I thought it would be some weird Master Pentultimate inside Master Pentultimate. But the shell-with-stickers idea also sounds incredible. (What about a [void] Megaminx in Pyraminx Crystal in Starminx I in Master Pentultimate in Pentultimate? Sounds like one for Oskar :lol: )

If you're still confused, here's a link.

If it is a shell inside the Master Pentultimate I would say it's not Starminx since that wouldn't make sense. But I think there's a Megaminx in there. Really small. Stationary centers and non-floating edges and corners.

I totally didn't or I just don't recall? Maybe it was in disguise? Or maybe I got neuralized? How so? VIA LOOKING AT MY SCREEN? Omg... The MIB has even more influence than I thought. But why puzzles? It must be brought to us from outa space. ... Has anyone ever seen a picture of TomZ or him in person?

I know what it is but I didn't see what Tony is talking about today. I'm guessing something related to Dutch Cube Day maybe... but that is still a few days off. Either way, I'm itching for the official anouncement. I WANT to be able to talk about this puzzle.

I suspect overhanging turns, where some pieces travel over others mid-turn.

I think i know what eric's is.

It seems to be a megaminx, that upon solving sings the song by Michigan L. Frog, while dancing and sending off fireworks.

The mechanism is actually quite simple and rather obvious from the picture.

Yes, I thought that too. The centers look slightly indent, like some others said already. So I am guessing this. It's a Megaminx on top of starminx centers. I suppose the corners are from the very core but after the starminx layer new edges need to be put in. They behave the same like the other ones that are in the core but bringing those to the outside wouldn't be possible I guess. The outside Megaminx edges would need some type of void mechanism though since the centers aren't "real" anymore.
Chopasaurus plus megaminx is way to much, even for Eric. :lol:

Edit: I just see that on 1.1.47 the edges are actually floating too. So they don't even act like those on a Megaminx. You can cross the void mechanism part unless it's more than 1.1.47

Is it a face turning dodecahedron that has angled cuts so It turns like this? (I don't know what 1.1.47 is)

Well I started this week with an idea for a new puzzle modification using the Master Pentultimate. I was hoping for this one to be one of my future puzzles, as such I figure this is probably the best place to post this, I spent so much time on it before I realized what I had actually made I would hate for my efforts to be in vain. I actually didn't realize what it was until after I had finished clean up on all of the pieces. I present, the Rex Pentultimate.

Tell me that is CGI. The image is too perfect. Very very nice render but I don't believe its real. If I'm right may I ask what software you used?

The biggest giveaway is the stickers. None of them have rounded corners.

I don't believe for one second it is a physical copy. I would guess it's an image from SolidWorks placed in front of a pretty background.

oops sorry, was in no way trying to fake that as a physical copy, I just like photoview(rendering program paired with solidworks). I could actually make the stickers rounded too, but i am not that picky. :lol:

I did however try to get the puzzle to look like BSF.

I just thought it was funny that all the work I put into my rex pentultimate simply gave me a starminx. :roll:

I just wish that photoview backgrounds weren't so fuzzy. :?

hm that an interesting idea... however it seems there would be almost no way to hold the corner in. That, or the stalk to hold it in would be so small it would be ineffective
