Leontev's 205 Minutes is a masterpiece in both design and construction. So named because if you make one correct move per second, non stop, it will take you 205 minutes to disassemble. This n-ary juggernaut requires over 12 thousand moves to disassemble. Once disassembled, a reset mechanism allows you to quickly bring it to the original state with only four moves. It also comes with the 136 minute piece which only requires around 8,000 moves to solve.
It was a difficult decision to make this puzzle. It's so incredibly complex and requires so much precision that I thought about it for well over a year. In the end I'm glad we made it...some puzzles are so genius they just have to be realized.

Allard wrote a very nice review of this puzzle for his Puzzling Times blog.
I havent solved mine yet, but that doesnt mean I cant see inside and tell that it was super complicated to manufacture. This thing looks amazing and its fit is literally perfect. You just need to be well prepared mentally to take on a challenge like this one. One of my pride and joys from cubicdissection.
