Hey everyone,

You might have seen this puzzle before, this big version on the ***I have a dream*** thread prototyped by Claus or the mini version prototyped by Luke on the *hints of secret ideas thread*.

You will finally be able to own any of both versions now on shapeways!

Mini version: 40$ DIY, or 50$ assembled and stickered
Big version: 140$ DIY, or 160$ assembled and stickered
Add 10$ for a black puzzle :)

Here's the funny part:

The mini, I will not charge for stickers, and if anyone buys DIY from my shop i'll send free stickers.
The reason: Luke wanted to order a set from Oliver, but there was a mistak in the sticker cutting process, and too much were printed. Oliver told me he would send me all the sheets that he shouldn't have printed, if I payed for the shipping. Therefore he send them to me, but when I recieved them, I was SO surprised to see so much:
There are 67 top and bootom sticker sheets, and 93 side sheets, meaning I have 160 sticker sheets :lol:

And you can even choose the colors you want, and I'll tell you if I have them or not, because I have about 15 different color for each type of sticker :mrgreen:

Video

And also I'd like to thank Claus for prototyping the big version of the puzzle considering the risks and sending me those beautiful pictures. He hand cut stickers pretty well!! And thanks to Luke as well for making the mini version: pictures and video coming soon :D

- Greg :D

That is a great puzzle! I like how you altered the design of a pentagonal domino to make it shapeshift! :shock:
I wonder why a regular pentagonal domino hasn't been mass produced yet.
Anyway, great design!

You can see a picture of it solved right here http://www.twistypuzzles.com/forum/download/file.php?id=21879&mode=view, but the seconds picture pretty much shows it :D

Yay Greg! I promise I'll get around to the pictures when I have the stickers. I'll also make a few topics on some other very cool puzzles that Greg has designed... :D

Oh Greg, what were the risks with Claus prototyping the puzzle? Considering that mine had already been printed and was successful, I'm curious to what the risk could have been.
