A face turning Deltoidal Icositetrahedron that can also be transformed into a pseudo-deltoidal icositetrahedron. Both are jumbling only puzzles.

The inventor's favourite shape is the Deltoidal Icositetrahedron, and he wanted to extend the ideas of Oskar's Crazy Comet, Astroid Attack, and Meteor Madness (see their separate entries) into other shapes as well. The result was this puzzles. It has the same naming scheme, with alliteration, space references, and a word to mean "insane".
It was printed on a Creality CR-10 at the inventor's. Jason Gavril (Chewbacca) cut the stickers.
This puzzle has to 2 possible geometries using identical pieces, the regular deltoidal icositetrahedron, and the pseudo-deltoidal icositetrahedron. This is the fourth puzzle (fifth if one counts a shape variant) with the axis system of a regular deltoidal icositetrahedron. The core can be switched to the axis system of a pseudo-deltoidal icositetrahedron. Please refer to image 8. This is the first puzzle with this kind of axis system. There is no image for this case yet because the puzzle had to be restickered.
This puzzle is part of a collaborative series, the puzzle advent calendar 2018.
