Very nice! The Dia Cubes remind me of Piet Mondrian paintings.

OMG!
I have the bandaged AI cube and struggled plenty with that! It makes me feel faint just thinking how hard these must be! I hope one of the companies (that would be you Cubetwist!!!) gets around to mass producing these! :)

Oh, that's good, I only looked in the picture of Chimera Shift variants. I wondered why the scramble picture had puzzles that are not fully scrambled? So I asked. I would like to try them one day.

I've been working on a lot of "corner bandaged" / chimera-type puzzles lately. Just wanted to share that I've just now solved the Chimera Shift 5x5x5. It's quite difficult! Much, much more difficult than either the AI Cube or the Corner-Block 5x5x5. I'm curious if anyone other than grigr has attempted solving this puzzle? I'd love to see someone else's method.

My next project is the Chimera 2x2+6x6 and possibly the Chimera Shift 6x6.
