Dino Dodecahedron
Above:Solved
Click a thumbnail to see its larger version and description.
The easiest corner-turning dodecahedron. The name is taken from its hexahedral cousin.

The first design for this puzzle was presented by Luke Harry. In 2009 Kevin Uhrik customly built the first version of this puzzle. The images steem from these customly made puzzles.
Like the Dino Cube it is a rather easy puzzle. Only the edges have to be solved with respect to the corner-pieces. These corner-pieces seem to consist of triplets of X-faces. The central faces can not be twisted. They are all part of the puzzle's core.
The comparison with the dino cube does not fit perfectly sinve the dino cube has no visible core and corners but the similarity in solving is undeniable.
This is the second puzzle after Starminx I with this appearance.
In 2011 this puzzle went into mass production. Sadly it is sold under the misleading name "Starminx I" a name the community uses for a face-turning dodecahedron.
The industrial version:
Edge length: 40 mm
Weight: 241 grams
