Click a thumbnail to see its larger version and description.
This puzzle tries to reimplement the Helicopter Cube in a dodecahedron.

The images here show the mass produced version which was released by MF8 in mid-2011. The first sample was designed by Clayton Ertley and subsequently printed and assembled by Claus Wenicker.
Edge length: 35 mm
Weight: 200 grams

In 2011 MF8 started the production of its own design of an equivalent puzzles. It is the mass produced implementation of the Helicopter Dodecahedron, and was also the first mass produced "Helicopter" puzzle to show the normally hidden center pieces. It has center pieces (that aren't technically needed and never move), edge pieces, and the fillets are quite small, leading to many stabbed fingers.

Like the edge turning hexahedra this puzzle allows jumbling turns.

It is produced in black, white and translucent green plastic. In the latter case the stickers are a bit translucent, so that the translucent puzzle looks nicer overall.
The package was used for four different dodecahedral puzzles: Gigaminx, Master Kilominx, Helicopter Dodecahedron and Dino Dodecahedron (under its misleading name: Starminx)
