So, I was thinking about some modifications.

The first I thought of came to me when I was playing with my Axis cube. What if someone took a bandaged cube and transformed it into an axis cube? I think that would be interesting.
Also I think a Windmill cube would be pretty cool for that also.

Half truncated Golden Cube? I'm not sure how that one would look, or if its been done before. Though I would never mod my electroplated golden cube :P

Last I thought about was transforming a pyraminx into a dodecahedron shape. Again with this, I'm not sure if it has been done before.

What are your thoughts?

Axis cubes seem to have limitless new possibilites! Love those axis cube ideas, you should make them :)

I dont think a half truc fisher golden has been done, but heres the fully trucated version (which you probably already knew about)

And the pyraminx docecahedron would kind of make a skewb ultimate. Sorta.

I know the feeling, I have these wonderfull ideas and I find out they have already been done :x

But I still have a few good ones cooking in my head :D Keep thinking of cool stuff!

Yes I'm aware of Tony's puzzle there.
That got me thinking just now, what about taking a half truncated golden cube and turning it into a tetrahedral shape, similar to the war a mastermorphix can be made.
Thats interesting! May have been done, again I do not know :wink:

KylerV made one of these a while ago.

Right as I posted the last message, I remembered his puzzle.

Anyway, I think a bandaged axis cube would be very interesting.
