@Grégoire: Fine design
@Traiphum: Fine idea. Thank you for editing the images, again.

What does it weigh?
What is its edge length?

BTW: You do not need to shrink the images down to 350 pixel. I have a script which does that quickly and which I need to run for all images.

So this is just a 2x2 + Helicopter Cube in a truncated octahedron, no?

Why are the stickers so rounded?

That's the best look!
I hate when puzzles are left with sharp corners.

Same here, love the rounded design. Pointy stickers are more prone to peeling in my experience.

I believe bigger stickers looks better.
I usually don't make big rounded corners only because the pieces are so small, but this has big surfaces so it is easy to make rounded stickers :)
