A face turning cube, capable of 45 degree turns in some circumstances.

Octo-Star (aka OctoCube) is a shape modification of a fracture-sliced triakis octahedron, with additional corner and edge pieces added to make the shape fully cubic. The puzzle turns on six axes, much like a normal magic cube. However, when a face center displays eight-way symmetry, that axis can turn in 45 degree increments. This allows the puzzle to shape-shift as well as jumble.
Beginning in 2014 hknowstore mass produced this puzzle with body colors in black, white and blue. That was also the point when it received its patent number.
Edge length: 58 mm
Weight: 103 grams
