So I made this mod(See Images) along time ago because I had the resources and I was bored and I never really knew what to do with it and I was thinking about selling it but I wanted to know if there is a specific name for it and if there is any info on this mod or if I am the only one who has made it which I am sure is not the case?

Nice. I haven't seen it before. "Siamese Quintuplets" perhaps?

I love it - you should sell it I think - I might be interested.

I know that sudokus shaped liked this are called samurai sudokus, so why not "samurai cubes"? 8-)
Really like the look of this!

Wow I am surprised that no one has seen it before, and that being said I may sell it but I am having a hard time deciding a name, I was thinking about Siamese-X or something like that. What do you guys think?

Didn't you see Andreas' post just above? He gives not just a picture, but also the original name.

This picture is from the book:

The book of Ingenious & Diabolical Puzzles
Jerry Slocum and Jack Botermans
Copyright 1994
ISBN 0-8129-2153-4

The picture he shows is page 124, and the puzzle you are talking about is in the bottom right.

The descriptive text about it is as follows:
Marcel Gillen, of Luxembourg, made a "twin cube" puzzle by joining the edges of two cubes, in 1986. The five-joined cubes puzzle in the photo is a later creation by Marcel.

Marcel is well known by members of our forum from IPP, DCD and GCD, although I am not sure if he is a member himself.

Well shucks I did not see the name of the puzzle but thank you for the heads up and as far as any information on the puzzle is there anything else that there is to know about the Quintamese Cube so maybe we can put it in the Museum?

I will support with photos once I can get a good set up for them as well as a video.
