Back in the 1980s almost the only opportunity to get new challenges in solving puzzles was to make a bandaged variant of an already known puzzle. This variant was one of them and the only way to get one was to built it by hand. However in 2011 mass production of this variant was started. These variants are quite easy to build. All which has to be done is to take a 4x4x4 and glue the appropriate tiles on them. Nothing more has been done here. See images 3-6.
