Due to the mechanism of the original Alexander's Star being a bit finicky, this puzzle should be considered more of a shelf puzzle, and less suitable for solving.
Purchasing this model does not buy you a completed puzzle. You'll need your own Alexander's Star, and you'll need to assemble yourself.

This DIY model gives you parts you can use to modify one of your own Alexander's Star puzzles into the Bronto Star, a larger cousin of the rare Dino Star puzzles. The puzzle pictured shows my Alexander's Star modified with the pieces available here.

Alexander's Star puzzles have somewhat catchy movement, and this mod doesn't fix the issue, so turning can be tricky.

Stickers can be purchased for $5 by emailing

I think this is a fantastic puzzle! I really like it much, BUT everyone need to know that there are some problems with the mechanism of the Alexander Star (what is the core of this mod). My version is highly unstabile. It is hard to turn, and usually pops. But still it is beautiful, especially with my sticker variations. (see attached photo) More informations about this puzzle, the problems of it, and some photos can be found at the Twisty puzzle forum's following topic:
