You're looking for 12 individual puzzles that have been changed somehow.

I did my best to correct for the difference in perspective and rotation but it was hard. I don't have a lot of experience with these sorts of transforms.

Here is an animation:

I found 85 or so other changes-
1. The Skewb in one picture is slightly older than the one in the other picture.
2. The Gigaminx in one picture.........
3.

Well done to Benf207! You have correctly found and identified the 12 different puzzles. :D

Guiltybystander, you were very close, but one of those on your list hasn't changed.

Bmenrigh, I like the animation! It looks like an earthquake. Also it looks a bit like the smiley puck at the front is spinning! :lol:

Well in that case the door, walls, floor and all the puzzles have been moved. :D

PS. Ask Santa for a tripod. :wink:

GAH! I could have sworn the 1 and 3 dots were swapped. Don't know how I messed that up.

I wouldn't worry, you weren't the only person to see differences that aren't there.

As another note; only one puzzle occurs in the picture twice, and this is the only duplicate in my collection. Did anyone notice it?

Nope! There you can see both versions of the Dioctipoid, 1.0 & 2.0.

It's the shells. But the question I have is are they really duplicates? I mean are they both
1) the version with the reversible buttons,
2) the version with the non reversible buttons,
3) the Rubik's version, or
4) the Chinese version? :P

It is indeed the Rubik's Shells! :D

They are both the Rubik's version made by OddzOn with the irreversible buttons, but one of them has the buttons drilled to allow resetting where the other doesn't.

I'll probably be selling one of them soon. I just don't have the space at home, so promised myself to not keep duplicates.
