Rubik's Master Magic Panels
Left top original made by Matchbox 1987, left bottom newer black version.
(plastic, twelve 2" panels)
This puzzle works the same as the standard Rubik's Magic,
and the same transformations can be used (star, roll, reverse, wallet stack, transformer, etc.).
The goal generalizes the standard Rubik's Magic Panels to make a W shape on the back with the 5 rings unlinked.
The puzzle directions also show many 2D shapes that can be made:
A Solution For Rubik's Master Magic Panels
Jaap's Page credits the following solution to C. McFarren,
which reduces the solution to two applications of the standard Rubik's Magic transformer transform.
The illustration below is for the original silver version;
the newer black version also shown shown on the previous page works exactly the same
(although Jaap's page notes that some of these puzzles have graphics placed in a way that a mirror image solution us used).
0. Do a roll to the right:
1. Flip the left and right two panels up an over,
flip the upper left and upper right top panels towards you,
fold the left two and the right two up and over towards the center to form an upside-down T,
then fold the bottom upper two up and back to length the stem of the T:
2. Roll the base of the T one panel to the right and then fold out the bottom 4 from underneath to form a reverse L shape:
3. Do the standard Rubik's Magic transformer transform on the top of the L
(note that for the second step, the panel flips to the left):
4. Do the standard Rubik's Magic transformer transform on the leg of the L
(note that for the second step, the panel flips upward):
