The 4x4x4 is just a design I came up with in about 10 minutes. Had to cut the stickers from cubesmith 4x4x4 stickers.
The 5x5x5 is a higher order version of my 3x3x3 sticker mod, had to cut these myself using cubesmith 5x5x5 stickers. The top and bottom are solid colors(green and blue)

The 3x3x3 diamond mod, I believe is original(atleast to my knowledge, It is simply a Half-Truncated cube, with 3 of the remaining corners truncated in half on all 3 outer faces. This one shown will not be stickered, it is a prototype. I used a product called QuickSteel to fill in the gaps.
Version 2 will be a test to fill the cube with Bondo Plastic Metal, I live a small town, and I dont have access to any crafts stores, just a wal mart. Any who, I will post images of Version 2 when it is done.

The 5x5x5 and 4x4x4 sticker mods are really cool. I can't really understand the 3x3x3 mod, hopefully if you make a stickered one, I'll understand it better.

Greg, you have one with the exact same sticker mod? I would like to see it. Also, when did you make yours? I had searched all over this site and the interwebs and couldnt find anything like it, other than the rubenking cubes.

I will post a better pick of the 3x3x3, im using my netbooks webcam for images so obviously they are crappy. Its essentially a truncated cube, just 3 of the remaining 4 corners have been hacked off, so it becomes a diamond-ish shape. Any one want to have the privilege of naming it? All i need ask is you put "Satellite" or "Spy" in the name. All names are welcome.

It looks like a Half Truncated Cube with truncated corner tips as well.
Good Job :D

Half-Trun. Tetraminx, does that sound like a good name?
