Hello, everyone.

I have a question about a dodecahedron cube I bought recently.
The sellor calls it "dodecaizor."
And he said he had imported them from Hungary '80s.
At that time, he also imported "KEP KORONG", a small pack puzzle. (I bought this puzzle with the cube.)

But it looks like a hungarian supernova in Puzzle Database on this site.
Is it hungarian supernova?

The colors on my cube are almost same.
But "black" and "dark brown" colors are different from the cube on the database.
(they should be "dark brown" and "light brown" respectively.)

There is no logo or information on my cube and it's box.

Definitely a Supernova. One question, though. Is the plastic box just a standard Rubik's Cube box (with a square indentation in the base), or is it actually designed for the Supernova (perhaps with a pentagon indentation in the base)?

Thank you for quick answer, Darren :D
I'm so glad, because it was first experience to write a topic on this site.

But it's unbelievable for me to buy it in Japan one month ago... :shock:

Thank you for answer too, Sandy!

It has a square indentation on the top of the box.
The top of the box is like one for standard rubic's cubes.
But the bottom has a round indendation.
The indendation is fairly small, and I can't settle a normal rubik cube in it.
I'm confused .. :?:

Looks specially made for the Supernova... or any Megaminx, I guess. Personally, I find that very interesting. My Supernova "box" is more of a flimsy plastic tube:

The Pentangle version came in the box Sandy has whereas the Hungary version came in the box Seikoh has.
