Greeting All

I proudly present to you my latest puzzle mods,,
So this cube was inspired by Chimera Cube (http://www.twistypuzzles.com/cgi-bin/pu ... ?pkey=3282) made by TomZ.
Since there is no chance for me to buy that cube.
I decided to make them myself by bandaging a 6x6x6 Cube to try simulates Chimera Cube.

After I finished it and try to solve it I realized that I had made it much more complex than the original cube.
Because after being scrambled the most outer layer can still be mixed between the 4x4x4 piece & 6x6x6 piece. :? :? :?

Well anyway I hope you like this new variation of a bandaged 6x6x6 cube..

nb:
After I look it over and over I feel this cube was more look like a "Mixed Bin Cube"..hmmmm
Btw should we give this cube a new name to differentiate it from the original.
What do you guys think?

I love it. It looks more like a 6x6 version of the bandaged AI.

It looks brillant! Really nicely done. :)

The only thing I'm not too keen on is the mix of black and white plastic. I would've kept it all a single colour.

I do like the mix of black and white, it gives extra colour to the cube especially when it's scrambled. :scrambled:

It would seem that the two different colors of plastic is a controversy.
I cannot tell if I like that or not . Mechanically this puzzle would be very fun to solve though.

Thank you very much for your input. I will try it on my next project.
But basicly the reason behind this is I don't have enough patience to paint them and I don't feel like to resticker them,, :wink: :wink:
besides I don't have enough sticker.. :lol: :lol:
Although I realized that this colour gives an extra exclamation between the 4x4 pieces & 6x6 pieces,,
I think it's unique and interesting..

I am always happy to see somebody else who is bandaging puzzles.
I feel less alone.
Thank you.

EDIT: Corrected some minor mistakes.
