Some weeks ago, Andreas asked for a rebuilt of Danny's Starburst: http://twistypuzzles.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=15&t=19772&start=0&hilit=starburst
It is the shape of a Five-Compound-Octahedron.

He needs pictures of a stickered one for the museum but the original puzzle is going lost?

I made a copy of the mechanism.

Then I designed some different kind of "edges".

Hi,
first I was afraid that you didn't post the stickered version but then I scrolled down a bit ...
Amazing how beautiful this one looks with stickers.

Regarding the icosahedron I have to show you this one:
http://twistypuzzles.com/cgi-bin/puzzle.cgi?pkey=3216
I am sure yours is better playable.
I will definitely add your images to the entry but I have to decide whether I will replace the front image. Opinions anybody?
