Jurgen Brandt was probably the first person to make this puzzle though many people including myself saw it as a possibility soon after the first Megaminx came out. The Megaminx is a dodecahedron which is the dual of the icosahedron. That makes this puzzle a very obvious transformation. It wasn't until 2005 though that I actually made one myself.
I am pretty happy with the quality and movement is good. I used Rubik's Cube type stickers. An icosahedron has 20 sides which is a lot of colours to find. I therefore used ten colours, doubling up on opposite faces.
The puzzle is sometimes called Icosaminx though the name has been used for other puzzles so I just call it Icosahedron Megaminx to avoid confusion.
