Yes, this was my octahedron cubie thingy.
I have now decided to put this as a giant puzzle. I don't know how bog the original mass-produced crystal cube is, but I'm pretty sure that is smaller than this. This puzzle is about 10.5 centimeters long (rough guess). As for the construction, I first took all the corner cubies out of a dollar store rubik's cube, then using six of those cubies, I put them on the center caps so that this is fully functional.
For this, I used paper stickers. For all the non-white stickers they were all from post it notes. The white stickers were basically from tags. (I am not allowed to use cubesmith because it is online and requires a credit card. (I am only twelve years old.)(Ironically, mom let me use a razor sharp painting tool for cutting the corner foots off.)
The turning quality is a little better than last time. Before, I used gum in my cube, but now I am using superglue. I didn't use that mich to keep the rithets of the add-on pieces in place (so as to prooving the full functionality of the puzzle) so I am surprised that the new layer can turn without it falling off after several turns.
So here it is:

I think to mass-produced ones are regular (1.9 x 1.9 x 1.9 cm).

That's how surprising it is to have made a puzzle more than five times bigger than the origional! :D

he's talking about the size of the cubies I'm pretty sure.
if it was that small then yea it would be smarter than a pocket cube. so it's actually about 57mm, like a regular rubik's cube.

So it's a maxi rather than a giant?
