It's about time for this one... Even though a lot of cuboids have been released lately I think this one is the best because it is black (but I am sure a certain forum member will make a white one soon).
It's really just a 6x6x7 Cuboid. It turns quite good like many of my other cuboids, but it required a little more breaking in to get there. The mechanism is a variation on the well known V-mech.

I am not very happy about the photos I took so I will replace those later with nicer ones as would be expected by Andreas. For now though, please enjoy this puzzle.

I too sense an exponential explosion of cuboids here recently. At this rate we'll be up to a 16x16x17 in no time.

I can tell just by looking at it that the puzzle is not proportional.

Still, a great puzzle!

Another great cuboid. I have been praying for a cubic 7x7x7 V-Cube so I could make this myself. Perhaps I'll just get Oskar's 17x17x17 and make a 16x16x17 instead.

@Tony can't we 'just' modify this from a V-cube 6? Just like making a 4x4x5 from an Eastsheen 4x4x4.

Hey thats not a half bad idea! It sounds like a tremendous amount of hard work, but possible.
I would make a 4x4x5 from a 5x5x5 though.

I have seen worse images: unedited ones, blurry ones, small ones, and worst of all: lost ones.
If you hadn't wrote that sentece I would have entered this puzzle immediately because you already removed the background.

Yes. It is.
To be fair: Claus' 1x2x11 is black too.

I for myself consider say the the question about black/white puzzles is decided in favor of the black ones. Reason: Black puzzles look better in front of white background as they are shown in the museum.
