Multidodecahedron

Click a thumbnail to see its larger version and description.
The all-in-one face-turning dodecahedron which collects all the pieces of the Megaminx and Master Pentultimate.

This puzzle implements the concept of the Multidodecahedron first conceived and presented by Carl Hoff in 2009. This should collect all pieces which are present in all face-turning dodecahedra with planar and equidistant cuts. Therefore the Megaminx, Pyraminx Crystal, Starminx, Master Pentultimate and Pentultimate are "only" subsets of this puzzle.

In fact the Master Pentultimate designed by Tom van der Zanden already has all these pieces although the pieces of the megaminx are hidden under the rest. The designers challenge was to find a way to make this inner pieces visible to the outside again. He introduced the "wire frame"-pieces to make the inner pieces visible and still allow good rotation of the complete puzzle.
This puzzle consists of 197 pieces and needed 312 stickers.
Edge length: 36mm
Weight: 150g
