Hi all,
Here is the one from not-that-difficult-mod department:
this is the first one that came to mind when I got my Chinese megaminxes.
When I took the coloured tile off, the corner was hollow.
So there you go.
Vadim

Cool! That's really pretty. You could probably do something like this on a Rubik's Cube too (has anyone tried it?)

For those who are interested, that shape is a dodecadodecahedron.

Yeah, now that I see it again I'm thinking of getting another Chinese megaminx just so that I can do this to it. This is an awesome mod.

Thanks!
I did break my favourite side-cutters while making it though!
Hence I'm quite cross with this puzzle! :)

All corners are still there:
When I popped the tile out, the corner appeared to be hollow.
The tile wasn't even glued to the plastic: it was one of it's sides!
There are only 3 vertical "walls", which I had to get rid of, file it, break side-cutters :) and stick colour tiles on the inside walls of each corner.
That's all!
Vadim
