A Thomas Cube in midtwist (by 120) and then appropriately restickered.

The creator of this puzzle reinvented the Thomas Cube but didn't know about it. Compared with the Thomas Cube this creation has a new aspect since it is a midturn transformation: With respect to the puzzle function the solved state is a midturn state. One prominent example of this technique is Tony Fishers Golden Cube.
Usually for such midturn-state-variants several pieces need to be modified but not in this case. In this case only the stickers needed to be changed, because the creator twisted ony layer by 120 which (due to the axis system reorientated within the solid) resulted in the same shape.
