Very impressive. If possible, I'd like to see a video.

I love, how you sticker your puzzles to represent as if they had been cut out of a matrix (did I use this word correctly? XD) of octahedra and tetrahedra! It certainly looks like it makes it more confusing to solve. I like the Rhombohedron, if it were bandaged along the middle belt, to make a solely face-turning variant, would that make it triveal?
can't wait to see your next 'series' (:

These are great!

Can we get some pictures of how the Rhombic Prism turns? It seems to have too many cuts to be a Skewb.

Thank you all.

No need for pictures. All variants shown are just (?) shapes mods of a skewb.

They are made like this. The extensions are glued together out of three shapes of extensions which were casted before.
  • a halved octahedron (aka square pyramid)
  • a tetrahedron
  • a chopped rhombohedron

Hrm. I don't consider the SiameseSkewb as trivial. So this won't be too.

BTW: There is a trivial reason for the stickering schemes: Stickering them like this allowed me to buy some uniform triangular stickers which could be used for all the new ones. The HMT is stickered different since it was made earlier before the sticker purchase.
