Animal Cube (Goat, Cabbage and Wolf)

rules of conduct of the cube, tricky internal blocks:
1) while turning the faces - cube with goat can't go past dice with cabbage
1) while turning the faces - cube with the wolf cannot go past the goat cubes
otherwise they are pleased with their kill ;) you are performing the role of a farmer who must not let this happen!

on this puzzle, I felt inspired after Vladimir Yaroslavsky: Wolf & Sheep cube
(viewtopic.php?f=15&t=24571)

Cube is made based on a famous Russian puzzle with centuries of history: "the Wolf, goat, and cabbage"
puzzles are very simple rules: “A farmer is to ferry across a river a goat, a cabbage, and a wolf. Besides the farmer himself, the boat allows him to carry only one of them at a time. Without supervision, the goat will gobble the cabbage whereas the wolf will not hesitate to feast on the goat.”
You can play online: http://www.cut-the-knot.org/ctk/GoatCabbageWolf.shtml
You can also download a very beautiful game - Ferryman, there are many levels and additional characters: http://www.gamershell.com/pc/the_ferryman/

I made 3 versions: here is a photo of each one and mini template
point to the corner - wolf, a point on an edge - goat, a dot at the center - cabbage

This is quite nice but it would've been a good idea to ask vladimir before doing this. I know he was working on the same because I designed it for him and it should come out in a few days if i'm not mistaken.
Good work though ! :)

All ok!
When Vladimir searching designer for his puzzles, I offered my drawing, but he has already found a designer.
I also came up with an additional character and advanced the mechanism. He allowed me to make my version of the puzzle.
I've been long waiting for your release, but I thought that your project is stopped, so I published my Animal cube ...

ABCC = Another Bandaged Cube concept

Once there was an ambitious guy (me) who thought he could analyze all possible concepts to bandaged a cube. You smashed that dream, AGAIN!
Very nice concept.

My 2 cents to this thread:

I post my idea with Sheep and Wolf cube in Nov 2012
see http://www.twistypuzzles.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=15&t=24571
and was looking for a designer who will help me to create prototype.
Grégoire Pfennig (RubixFreakGreg) was the first and this project
was started. Little bit later Evgeniy (grigr) also was willing
to participate in project, I already had found designer. After this
Evgeniy suggested another case of Sheep & Wold cube and also
introduced new character. I don't have objections if someone creates
other variants of animal cube based on my idea (and extended idea
by Evgeniy if any).

3D model of my cube is being delivering to me and I expect
to receive it very soon. I will post my cube when I have it.
Now I can say that there will be DIY kit which allows player
to assemble (almost) any combination of the cube with all
characters.

Hopefully I get this done before the IPP. I can't guarantee anything.
