A few photos of the complete disassembly. Each side panel is artistically patterned and designed for the pieces to slide snugly together in various ways, some of which are quite satisfying, and even a little difficult to spot. Each has a retaining mechanism which holds it all together. The pieces and sides are almost identical in pairs from the top and bottom, the front and back, and right and left, but there are unique features which, if mixed up, can impede reconstruction. I took everything apart, but left it fairly well organized as you can see. I'm not completely Puzzlemad, so did not feel the need to scramble it all up and kiss this incredible box goodbye! Instead I got it all back together quite nicely. Borg conquered!
|80 pieces in total: 13 per front and back, 18 per top and bottom, and 9 per side|
