The mf8 Icosamate, like most icosahedral puzzles, is a bit more difficult than your standard twisty cube. This one comes unstickered, but with stickers for you to place yourself. If you think you're up to the challenge, give this one a try and see how you do!

Our Promise to You
All of our products are guaranteed to be free of defects, or we will replace and reship at no cost to you. Please contact us within 4 weeks (28 days) past the delivery date to report any issues with items you have purchased.
Please note that some new cubes when being used for the first few times may experience what is termed a "pop". This is when one or more parts of a puzzle pop out without any damage actually being done to any of the pieces. This also occurs from time to time during normal usage. Pops are typically not considered a defect if the parts which come off can be reassembled by hand.
The corners on 2x2 puzzles should not be twisted as doing so may snap the piece. Damage caused by corner twisting is not considered to be a defect.

I had previously purchased the Void Pentultimate and discovered it was almost unusable, it caught and locked up constantly, the centers caps would just fall out, and occasionally the rail system would just break and start to come apart. All in all I only managed to solve it once without it breaking on me and then I put it down because it was so frustrating. I went ahead and bought this puzzle even though I knew they are basically just shapemods of each other hoping they had managed to make a useable version this time. I was surprised to find this puzzle to be significantly better. I haven't taken it apart but it looks like thy did this one with a shells mech instead or rails and it it much improved, however I tried to find the fixed corner and none appeared to be fixed which concerned me. I wasn't wrong to be concerned a couple times the hidden Master Pentultimate pieces have gotten misaligned and getting them back is a real pain. All in all I have solved it several times and it seems pretty reliable it does catch some but not nearly as much as the Void Pentultimate, all of the pieces remain firmly attached, and the Master Pentulitimate pieces only very rarely get out of alignment. A couple additional cons are the size, it's huge, and the weight, it's heavy. For all my complaints I am still really happy to have a useable commercially manufactured Icosamate hence the four stars.
