The Master Pyramorphinx, is a very Special Unique puzzle designed
by Tony Fisher. It stands 10mm higher than our regular Pyraminx and adds a new
dimension to our Pyraminx which is still our best selling Puzzle until now.
The Master Pyramorphinx was designed and first made by Tony Fisher. He completed his prototype on the 8th April 1991. At the time he didn’t really have a name for it and would refer to it as either 3x3x3 Tetrahedron or sometimes Tetrahedron Transformation of a Rubik’s Cube. That original puzzle was very large and heavy (unlike this one) though it turned reasonably well.
One of the first things you will notice about this puzzle is when scrambled it usually does not retain it’s shape. Most of the time it will be a confusing jumble of parts. But this lets you make beautiful and unique shapes and patterns. This type of puzzle is commonly referred to as a shape shifter or Morphing puzzle.
The Master Pyramorphinx is based on the Rubik’s Cube mechanism and is only slightly more difficult to solve. The 6 central edges are equivalent to Rubik’s Cube centers though on this puzzle they need to be correctly orientated. The 12 trapezium shaped pieces are equivalent to Rubik’s Cube edges. Positioning of these is not as strict though this can course parity errors. Exact orientation is vital. Both for the corners and centers of The Master Pyramorphinx which are equivalent to the 8 Rubik’s Cube corners. Exact positioning is vital though the four central triangles do not have a specific correct orientation. Once again this can lead to parity errors which adds an extra challenge.
The Master Pyramorphinx is made from a high quality black plastic body. The object of this puzzle is
to scramble all of the sides and then return it back to its starting position. This puzzle is extra
challenging because as it is scrambled it changes shape, so not only do you have to put all of the
colors on the right face, but you also have to bring it back to the original shape. The Master
Pyramorphinx was designed by Tony Fisher, from the United Kingdom, who has been making
puzzles since 1981. The Master Pyramorphinx is now manufactured by Meffert’s Rotational Puzzles.
Uwe Meffert, born in Wernigerode, Germany, not only manufactures the puzzles, but has designed
many of his own puzzles as well.

The first 3 hours that I have had the cube on of the pieces popped out. I would put the pice back in and I would lightly pull on the piece to see if it was in and it would just pop right back out. HORRIBLE CUBE!!!!!
