why is this simple looking puzzle almost $70?
If it's an Icosamate, that's a deep-cut puzzle with a fairly intricate design, as I understand it.

You can't quite use a fully symmetrical 12-armed core (a megaminx's core) because all of the legal turns cut right through it. You can't cheat it like on a skewb by using a 6-armed core because there's no combination of six faces that remains invariant through all the legal turns. It also seems that there's no straightforward bandaging approach like in 2×2×2 designs (although I did find this post on some weird multi-level bandaging thingy that I don't really understand).
