You better brush up on your supercube algorithms first.
This puzzle will force you to bend your perspective. You'll need to use both supercube and Pyraminx type algorithms on it. You might call it a shape mod, but that may not have been the intention of the designer. The fact is, an octahedron is a polyhedral dual of a cube and this puzzle will help you realize that. The center slices turn very smooth. The outer corners sometimes don't turn very smooth unless you take care to line them up. The stickers are good. This was a very fun challenge, like experiencing the mega morphix again.

LanLan 4-Layer Vertex Turning Octahedron
The LanLan 4-Layer Vertex Turning Octahedron is a really challenging 4x4 shapemod. The stickers on this puzzle were decent and I have not experienced chipping. The turning is good and not locky meaning that the solve experience is not horrible. Overall, I would recommend this cube for people who like collecting.
