Inspired from an idea by Guinepigsrock from youtube, who suggested I make a multicoloured borg, I give you the Rainbow Mirrorborg...

Colours used is a standard silver borg with detailing in red, blue, yellow, green, orange and purple.

Hope you like it. I'll be putting it on ebay sometime in the next 24 hours. Watch for the link if you're interested. :D

A piece of art! Magnificent, it looks wonderful. Once more, your Mirror Borg amazes me.

Brilliant puzzle Heiowge. Bit of a shame that it has really messed with my vision though... :lol:

Although Heiowge, there is one thing I am disgusted at:

Luke I think the whole borg has a wrong color scheme from your point of view then... ^^

I regret to say that this one may end up being the last borg mod I make. The last one only made me a profit of £5. Since I'm only making them as a fundraiser for stuff I need (in this case stuff for the new baby due in 11 weeks), it simply isn't a good use of my time anymore. This one has been at £16 for nearly all of the 5 days now, far less than the hovering price of the last few puzzles.

So unless I make a reasonable amount this time, I'll assume that the market for mirrorborgs has ended. While there will always be a buyer, there simply isn't enough in it to make it worthwhile anymore. Sorry.
