Hello,

I am proud to present my third puzzle, the Micro Starminx. After seeing Greg's awesome Micro Master Pentultimate, I bought one, but in the order I also decided to make myself a Micro Starminx as well, to see if I could. The turning is not bad. It is the same size as the Micro Master Pentultimate; 30mm between opposite faces, and about 13mm to an edge. The weight is 14.25 g.

Wow! I do like mini puzzles, and this one looks great! There's something very cool about seeing such intricate puzzles in such a small size.

Ahh! Sorry. I wondered if this was the next one you intended to make.

Thanks everyone.

It is good that you edited the images by yourself
and that you made a photo with the 3x3x3 as reference next to it.

To me, this looks like quite a feat.
Any chance we can see how you handle the megaminx centers? Tiny screws or a snap in mechanism?
Really great.

Really great.

Thanks! It has M1x5 screws, the same as used by Greg in his Micro Master Pentultimate. They are very tiny!

Any chance of a Video?
I really like these kind of extreme small puzzles. This one looks just beautiful!
This will be on my waiting list (if you will offer it), just like Greg's Micro Master Pentultimate
