Hey everyone, not much to show off here, as this isn't really "new" but it is pillowed so I though I would show it off.

I have always wanted a pillowed master pentultimate, so i decided to print one for myself. The feedback I got from a few people was really positive so I decided I would sell it through my shapeways shop. If you would like a non pillowed version, please contact me. There isn't much else to say because it's such a vanilla puzzle.

Beautiful! I really love it, especially now that it's pillowed. Just incredible. This will certainly be getting my vote on the Puzzles of February thread. :)

This is incredible! The turning is flawless! Would you mind making a size comparison photo? It doesn't look too big, but you might just have big hands. :lol:

Master Pentultimate = Vanilla Puzzle!? When did this happen? I haven't got a normal Pentultimate yet. The bar is either going up far too fast or I'm getting old and slow. Ok... maybe its the later.

Awesome! I LOVE the pillowed look, and the turning looks so flawless!

Great job, it uses the Shell mech, correct? I don't remember you posting anything about this earlier...

One of the few puzzles that is made for bandaging into another puzzle, but is better unbandaged IMO.

Indeed, it looks great and the way the cuts are made gives an interesting
illusion, as if those same cuts are actual web-strings!

Beautiful Eric!

There is right now one new puzzle discussed in this section of the forum that is entitled "legend" and doesn't deserve the name just for what it is. (I am not judgin quality)
There is also one new puzzle discussed in this section of the forum that does not have the appellation "legend" yet but should have.
As a matter of fact it is in this very topic.
I will therefore undo this drawback and say this to your puzzle:
Legend.

The large center pieces add a very interesting look to it! :D
