This is a normal Alexander's Star:

This is a BrontoStar designed by Puzzleforge: http://www.shapeways.com/model/639921/b ... er-s-star-

Can we do the inverse with a Dino Star (turning it to a "Dino Alexander's Star")?

Am I the first on take this idea? Can someone want to help me designing it? If it can be done i let make it real

Thank you all and sorry for my bad english!

Hey there! I think the result would be a cube. In fact, standard Dino cube.

Si! El resultat seria un cub, un Dino Cub. (Catalan version)
Yes! The result would be a Dino Cube. (English version)

I initially misunderstood the question, but that lead to the interesting idea: If Alexander's Star is based on icosahedral geometry, and the BrontoStar is based on Alexander's Star, and you can extend the Dino Star into a cube, then perhaps you could "fully" extend either the Alexander's star or the BrontoStar to create either a Face-and-corner-turning dodecahedron or a vertex-turning Icosahedron (Dogic/Bandaged Dogic?)

JFonS: Estic content de veure que hi ha uns quants catalans en aquest fòrum. D'on ets?

Are you sure that the result will be a Dino Cube? I'm talking about 2 colour pieces, not three (Dino).
Quicksolver: I like your idea. Can someone design it for us?

No sé si es que no estic entenent bé la pregunat però si ajuntem les diferents punxes d'un Dino Star de la mateixa manera que en l'Alexander Star obtenium un cub:

I don't know if I'm misunderstanding the question but if we join the tips of a Dino Star the same way an Alexander Star does we get a cube:
