I'm waiting for another great n-ary puzzle, but it takes too long.

Meanwhile, Shengshou mirror cube.

I'm also considering to start making mods, as soon as I have the time.

Finally here: Zahnradlaby (Double Gear Maze), by Jean-Claude Constantin (1st version).

After the first movements, I quickly realized something was wrong. In this case, it was assembled correctly but one of the ball was placed in the wrong spot and so the puzzle couldn't be solved. It was a bit hard but I managed to get the ball out and now the puzzle works correctly. Very beautiful...

Hellraiser 3x3 sticker mod:

http://oliverstickers.com/hellraiser-cube.html

It only works on Rubik's brand cubes (slightly larger) and now they all have tiles instead of stickers, so the borders of the new stickers can get a little messed up. Nice looking all the same and harder to solve than I thought.

Another sticker mod: Answer (42) cube, which is a homage to The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy...

http://oliverstickers.com/answer-cube.html

In order to really shine, it must use both white and black cubies in a very specific pattern.

This is what I could put together with the remaining cubies: a bicolor to try some patterns on (I wanted a checkerboard but it was impossible with the available pieces). Not bad but not great either. I might do something else with it soon.

>>3060
So I gave the mid layer a metallized blood hue, making it a tricolor.

Very simple idea, trivial solve, but I think it looks neat.

I see it as a Snow-White (Schneewittchen) color scheme. It can also remind of the North German Confederation / Nazi flag, but the color order would be different.

I bought it in white from Mefferts long ago, but it got lost/stolen in transit. I saw this chance with a local seller and ended up liking it better.

Pretty damned stiff in the beginning, but a bit of tension-adjusting and lub gets it ready for use (although pieces still catch up frequently). Beautiful and very easy to solve.

Hexaminx blue metallized (stickerless).

Hexaminx is a cubic mod of the classic megaminx, in which the 12 faces of the second become the 12 edges of the former. I took the stickers off to make this metallized version really shine; I much prefer it like this and it's still a challenge, cause getting back into the cubic shape gets even more confusing.

Tuttminx (by Very Puzzle).

While lubbing it, I broke an internal piece but managed to fix it (otherwise it'd be USD 54 down the drain). Stickers are DIY, so I tried to make a gradient with them.

If anyone's interested, the main geometry is what you'd call the Goldberg Polyehedron G(1,1)...

Just thought I'd give you a heads up, the latch cube is back in stock on hknow. Since it's more of a rarer puzzle now, I figured you may want to buy it.
