Hello, my new mod, it is a Gigaminx Triacontahedron, I could not get 30 different colors, so I used 15 colors, matching colors are placed on opposite sides.

:shock: That's awesome. It looks so different to the Gigaminx - it's definitely a puzzle that would impress non-cubers.

Beautiful! For someone doing such wonderful work it is a crime you don't have the supplies you need to sticker it fully! Please talk to one of our many sticker providers :)

I don't usually comment shape modifications, but this is truly brilliant!!!
It is an excellent combination of (1) preserving a symmetric shape and
(2) providing a "building block" illusion...

Well done!

Sigurd, we just started the year, and you KNOW which puzzle we plan on making soon :P don't be too fast on conclusions. Although I have to say: AMAZING modification!
