Hi,

Excuse the long post rich of information.
I have finished stickering of another batch of five puzzles:
Four of them are extended rhombic Skewbs:
Attachment:

first row; first column:
not yet revealed; somebody wants to make a guess?
I could be derived from the systematic arrangement of the mods.

first row; second column:
non-platonic octahedron
Four sides extended: LF LB RB RF
The stickering method is somewhat lazy. I know.

first row; third column:
Hex prism
Six sides extended: UF UR RF DB DL LB
This one is actually made from a octahedral skewb extending a rhombic Skewb like this would have the same result.

second row; first column:
Rhombic dodecahedron Skewb
Zero sides extended: []
Not an industrial one but one made by Tony Fisher.
Included for systematic reasons.

second row; second column:
Mental block
Eight sides extended: UL UF UR UB DL DF DR DB
Made from an industrial RhombicSkewb the longer edge length is exact the distance between two opposite faces of a rhombicDodecahedron Skewb.

second row; third column:
Rhombohedron
Six sides extended: UL UB RB LF DF DR
I like this shape 8-)

I haven't seen that octahedron before. Great work on all!

My guess for the missing one is, 'the first stellation of the Rhombic Dodecahedron', also known as Escher's Solid. It would tie-in with your comment in the Hints Thread, and like the other pairs of puzzles displayed on your kitchen floor, the total number of extended faces per 'puzzle pair' would then total 12
0+12=12, 4+8=12, and 6+6=12

Which one do you mean? The octahedron or the question mark? :lol:



Please note that the dimensions of the MentalBlock steem from the puzzle it was made of.

Please note that the puzzle in the lower right is NOT a Axisskewb. It is more of an AxisSkewb-Impostor:

See the filenames of the images:
Extended RhombicDodecahedronSkewb A528A00145294 - MentalBlock
Extended RhombicDodecahedronSkewb 28A00145000 - Octahedron
Extended RhombicDodecahedronSkewb 21E0200101E10 - Rhombohedron
Lame but systematic.
