Nice! It's a great time to be a puzzler with so many great puzzles coming out! Calvin, you've made so many awesome puzzles available that were previously unattainable or extremely expensive. Thank you for everything you do!

I was wondering if someone would mass produce this puzzle! It only has 3 piece types, so it wouldn't be hard to make the molds. Well, you've done something fantastic again Calvin. I'm so happy that you went into this business! There's no telling what is next with you. :D

It doesn't look to different than a Ball.B other than the stickers and lack of ridges.

I just received mine in the mail yesterday hand made by Triaphum. I'm learning all I need to do is buy a handmade puzzle to get it mass produced. :)

It's exciting to see it's getting mass production!

I didn't want to own a megaminx before because of the pentagrams on it, but if it's not too expensive, I can certainly buy this shapemod!

I also prefer the 12 color version, but I like the 6 color stickering as well. I might just buy two and sticker one with 12 colors. It wouldn't take too much time. :) Once again, thanks Calvin. You are the best producer of puzzles this community will probably ever have! :D

I'd say "can you buy a bunch of Pentultimate shape variations" but you can't buy a puzzle from yourself... :lol:

Just to chime in with all the complainers, I'd like to see a 4-color one. :lol: (But seriously, it'd be faux-tetrahedral and Traiphum is all about the tetrahedrons!)

The 6 color version emulates a hexaminx, correct?

Might have to get two of these, one for six colours and another for Olivér's 30 colour Megaminx Ball set! :mrgreen: It will look just like this, only round:

Calvin,
You had a picture earlier of a 12 colour version but that doesn't appear on the site yet. Is that going to be released later or has it been abandoned?

I recently received a 6 colour version (thanks Calvin). As you can see it came in a very nice hexagonal display box. The puzzle moves and feels like the Pillowed Hexaminx so it's very good. It has that same slightly heavy feel which I much prefer to some puzzles that use very thin plastic making them feel a bit cheap in my opinion.

My Traiphum Megaminx balls arrived yesterday. I cannot stress enough how utterly beautiful these things are! :shock: They turn wonderfully and look absolutely fantastic. The proof was when my wife actually stopped, looked at them, and went "ooooh, what are they?!?!?" That kind of thing happens about once in never. I got the 6 colour black version and the "pink" limited edition version. I'm processing an unboxing video now, but wanted to show off some photos. The only "negatives" are a couple of longish but thin stickers on the pink version which haven't "stuck down" properly. That'll be easily rectified. As I said on my FB page, thanks Traiphum, and thanks to Calvin also for doing such a fantastic job on production. :D

Your photo's of the black one show a 6 colour version, not 12 :)

I have a parcel that should arrive today or tomorrow I think, which also has 2 in it. I'm very much looking forward to them! :D

Oops, I've changed it now. Thanks. I do have a 12 colour version coming. It's all too confusing for me :roll:

Blimey. The yellow and orange next to each other look almost indistinguishable. :?

Well, they are easily distinguishable next to each other on the 6 colour, and I would be surprised if this uses different shades, so I imagine it's just a matter of the the way tony's camera picked up the colours in the bright sunshine.

Well, they are easily distinguishable next to each other on the 6 colour, and I would be surprised if this uses different shades, so I imagine it's just a matter of the the way tony's camera picked up the colours in the bright sunshine.

That's true. You should never take colour in photographs or video to be totally accurate. The puzzle is fine though some may disapprove of the black stickers.

It can even differ per monitor. Someone once thought, upon my sending a picture, that I had dark brown and orange wallpaper. My camera, my screen, and the reality shows a darker yellow and almost white yellow.

That person needed to calibrate, badly!


Mind.. speaking of, here is a link I used to get all on my screen peachy perfect :D

Well I'm pleased to hear it's just the photography. I'm really really looking forward to my 12 colour version which is coming, and after some of the "similar" stickers on the skewb xtreme I was a little worried. The megaminx ball is such a beautiful thing it would be a shame for it to be marred by bad sticker choices.

My 12 colour arrived today. I can confirm that the yellow and orange are definitely sufficiently separable, and that the black stickers on one face is up there with the worst stickering decisions in my memory. Apart from that, it's another great puzzle.

Black stickers on black plastic look terrible. I can tolerate white on white, I'm just not accustomed yet to seeing this. Does the white version also has a black side?

I am ordering mine (white) next week!
