Master Skewb Kite
Click a thumbnail to see its larger version and description.
A corner-turning rhombic dodecahedron made from a Master Skewb.

The first puzzle in shape of a rhombic dodecahedron was made by Tony Fisher. It was made from a skewb. In 2010 that puzzle went into mass production with the name "Skewb kite".
For this new puzzle the concept of this skewb kite was applied on the Master Skewb which explains its name.
This is the second rhombic dodecahedron which allows movements around its corners, but only those of third degree. The first one was built from a face-turning octahedron and therefore had 8 pieces (at the corners) less compared with this puzzle. Since this puzzle was made from a master skewb, it therefore included the additional corners.
Image #3 demonstrates that a 60¬į-turn doesn't affect the overall shape.
