I got the inspiration by Tony's Pyraminx Ultimate auction.

I took a Crazy 3x3x3 Mercury, drilled up the 5 invisible center pieces and rounded the last center leg. Now all the six inner circles are turnable.
Then I designed the extensions into a dodec transformation.

Great idea! When will you finish this puzzle? I can't wait to see it with stickers.

I started the print job for the missing pieces this night.
I have cut the stickers. I think it will be finished at weekend.

Very promising.
Please tell me this is not the start of a series.

This looks very promising! Dodecahedrons are always my favorite puzzle types (even when they're false faces) I hope we will get to see the finished product and maybe some example scrambling in the near future

This is a very good idea,

Once Burgo/ Rlines Crazy2fB4cube Kit arrives I will have no need for my Crazy Cube Earth I may consider my first ever mod using one.

Hmm this has got me thinking.
