An edge turning hexahedron transformed into the shape of a truncated octahedron which is an archimedean solid.

This is the second mass produced puzzle with the axis system of an edge turning hexahedron. The Helicopter Cube was the first one. Compared with the Helicopter cube this puzzle has a different shape (a truncated octahedron, an archimedean solid) and a different set of pieces visible. The X-Faces of the Helicopter cube have no subsets of identical pieces. The corners of the Helicopter cube are invisible here but the edge pieces visible here are not present in the helicopter cube.
Edge length: 30 mm
Weight: 173 grams
