Oops... :? Forgot about the corners...

Sticker mods are always an option. Maybe a 5x5x5 Rhombic Dodecahedron might work if cut right.

You may be able to have a wall system which has 2 pieces bandaged, and then 3 next to it. Then the layer below 3 pieces bandaged, then 2, and keep going down like that. On the other sides you then do it vice versa.

Sorry for my ignorance, but what is the problem with the ES 5x5 corners?

They don't go deep into the puzzle like the V-CUBE, so if you cut too deep, you'll completely get rid of the corners. Same with the middle edges, but not many mods cut them in so deep.

You could get another one, shave down one edge on both of them, and make a Siamese puzzle. Dunno how stable it would be though.

We need to change the subject from "eastsheen 5x5 mod" to "making a 5x5 wall cube".
