I think this is a Master Pentultimate.
Talk about an `ouch cube`.. I bet it bites! :shock:
I thought we were going to see something like Greg's Helimate: http://www.shapeways.com/model/452479/h ... imate.html but there are no Helicopter moves in the pictures. V3? :D

I think it is just showing a position similar to the mezon pattern on the curvy copter. This is created through the jumbling of the puzzle. I think that is what it is, because otherwise they would have another name for it.

Ah, yeah, good point, I was thinking they might have used their new mechanism on a different puzzle.. tricked me. :)
I think they're rehashed pictures from a long time ago, now that I think of it.

hello
This is version 2 of the helicpter dodecahedron. Its not a new puzzle. Just like a version 2 of the face turning starminx. On hknowstore page Calvin has written-

" On the version 2, it has been enhanced to have rounded edges, rounded corners and positioning mechanism. "
