Some of you might have seen this images in its earlier states and some might even recognize it by this thread's title. For all other it is a good opportunity to rediscover one of my favourite unfinished series. I post this here because since I posted it for the last time I could finish five additions.
I want to thank Ryan Binter and Grégoire Pfennig, who helped me to fill two slots with their designs. I will post additional images tomorrow. For now I need some sleep.

I'm not sure I understand how the puzzles in the same column are linked...

The columns are the same mech, the rows are same shape, if I understand correctly.
Could you post a list of all the names?

Where'd you get the rhombic dodecahedron and triacontahedron dice?

Awesome matrix.

Beautiful your Triacontahedron made out of a 3x3x3!!!!!!!!

In the museum you don't document the 1x1, here they are...

I miss the slot for rex platonics?

What slot did you open on the right side?

Why did you fill the gap for the megaminx with the (deeper cut) PC. The hexaminx is not possible to made out of a PC.

You are correct about the rows but not about the columns. The puzzles of one column share a axis system. All puzzles have two cuts per axis, except the left column which all have one axis. In cases where I have a choice I usually choose the rarer puzzle. Therefore I choose for the Pyraminx Chrystal over the megaminx. I got have used the Starminx as well.
Before I want to post the list of names I want to ask:
Is anybody able to identify the new additions? Who succeed may choose one. :shock: Just kidding.

I purchased the first one from shapeways and the latter one from a local role-playing-game-shop.

Thank you. The Triacontahedron is one of the non-new puzzles. Regarding the PC and the rex platonics: See further up. The axis system matters, not the mechanism.
The questions marks are for all the slots I miss in my collection but somebody else has already presented a slot-filler. On the rightmost column the question marks stand for the Icosacopter and the Big Kahuna.

There are 10 new members to the matrix. You own 10 new puzzle, but they are not exclusively the new ones to the matrix. Only 1 of the ? remained a ?

Okay. I consider this presentation of new puzzles as completely failed. Lets try to save what can be saved.

@GuiltyByStander: You are right. Compared with that first version I acquired three puzzles which already had been realised and I acquired seven puzzles which had not been implemented before 2010.

My mistake was to forget to post version 2 of the platonic matrix. Version 1 was digged up by GuiltyByStander.
Version 2 dates from 26th July 2011:

What I finished lately are the differences between version 2 and version 3.
