And the ten finalist's have been determined.

The poll will be open until the 31st of January. I will record the votes that day and call it final.

The finalists are as follows:

Quote:
With 7 votes, we have the X-Block 2 made by Ryan Thompson.

A seasoned modifier, Ryan impresses us once again with a cleaner version of his X-Block with the visually appealing white finish.

Also with 7 votes, there is the Platéus Bipolar made by Frederic Plateus.

Only his third modification, Frederic continues to amaze us with his creations. This puzzle being based off of a Skewb is no exception.

Now with 8 votes is the V-Cube made by Vadim.

A nice cubic version of the UFO puzzle made by Vadim. Unlike other Cubic UFO mods (Kite Cubes by Aleh) this puzzle has the axis running from edge to edge versus corner to corner.

Also with 15 votes is the Helicopter Cube/Bevel Cube by Puzzlemaster42 and Katsuhiko Okamoto.

A marvel of engineering, and a delight to all of those who have had the opportunity to play with it, this coreless and stable 3x3 is a gem unto it's own.
