A transformation of a mass produced Crazy Comet. I have cut around one half of the puzzle away exposing the core. After ensuring that it cannot fall apart I stickered the inside. The obvious way to do this was to match the outside. However that would make the new stickers pointless so I stickered the inside while the outside was scrambled. This means the outside OR inside can be solved but never at the same time. Some might say this makes the puzzle unsolvable and I used that theme in a jokey way in the video. In addition I revealed the puzzle on 1st April to make people think more than they would usually.
In October 2017 I took some new versions to the Dutch Cube Day. These had an all gold outside but the inside remains the same. This makes the puzzle solvable and presumably more desirable to a collector.
Mass produced normal ones can be purchased here.
