Hello everyone,
after a few weeks of silence due to abnormal delay of shipments destined to me, I could start to develop many of the ideas that crowd my mind lately;
the first idea that I present to you is based on one of the latest forms I developed the non-regular icosahedron, the first signs that I found during my research concerning this form, are from 2003 applied on a Megaminx done by Ju:rgen Brandt called Megaminxdiikosaeder

http://twistypuzzles.com/cgi-bin/puzzle.cgi?pkey=3218

Another puzzle with the same shape was done by Sharon Avidor in 2011 with the same base used by me The Icosharon Skewb*

http://twistypuzzles.com/cgi-bin/puzzle.cgi?pkey=1739

* Many thanks to the keeper of the museum Andreas Nortmann for the useful information;

back to my puzzle with the same shape and the same basis as Icosharon, differs from this
because of the 'orientation of the cut, this has led to obtain a puzzle of the same shape but with the pieces that compose it of different shape.

The base is an original Meffert's Ultimate Skewb and the turns is excellent, something very pleasing is the sound it makes while turning due to 'unusual solution of the (steel?) balls & springs, the shape looks like something out very well;

as all my other puzzles was done entirely by hand and to obtain the polishing wasn't used paint, is a shapeshifter puzzle and tomorrow will be completed with a set of 20 colors, probably the same as my first non-regular icosahedron, and obviously put on sale.

I think is all at the moment,
have a nice time
Best regards
Rafael

I am glad I could be helpful.
How many different edge lengths are there? How long are they?

Hello Mr. Nortmann,
There are two measures that recur throughout the puzzle, like all others cited in the post shape is composed of 8 equilateral triangles and 12 isosceles,
i will send you the measures of the object via PM, about the entries in the museum in need of photographs, the material has arrived and soon you'll have the pictures to complete my requests that had the problem with those blurred photos.
Best regards & sorry for delay
Rafael

If all images are like these they will be good replacements for the blurry ones.
