Prototype of the Dorstorm puzzle
The Dorstorm puzzle was invented long time ago and made recently by Robrech Louage for the ipp exchange in San Diego (2018). This prototype is not fully functional in the way that it's easily solved (compared to the final version) and it's missing a round plate on both side of the puzzle. So this is more a collector item, especially if you have the final version. You can compare both version. Maybe that may help you understand how to solve the final version. And if you don't have the final version, you can still buy this prototype and make the additional piece to have a fully functional puzzle.
Price: €

Vinco XIV
An interlocking ball puzzle made by Vinco. More difficult than it looks. Will be shipped assembled like on the picture on the left or disassembled like on the picture on the right (upon choice of the buyer)
Price: €

Orb by Sonic Game
This is the extreme version of the orb!! Perfect condition.
Shipped with its original leather box and carton box. The puzzle has already been registered. The key has been removed. I still need to find it. Anyway it does not really matter if you don't participate (and I am sure you won't because it's too time consuming, too difficult and you have very little chance to make any progress haha) in the adventure. So if you're just a puzzle player/collector, you should be fine :)

4M packing
Designed by Iwahiro and crafted by Brian Menold, the goal is to put the 4M shape pieces inside the box so that the lid can close the box flat.
The lid is somewhat not perfectly cut (proof of handmade work!). So there is a difference of "levelling".
However, this does not provide at all to solve the puzzle. It's just purely aesthetic. This is a very good puzzle, don't miss it!!
