We always assume the dice are fair.
Roll once, you have the first 3 numbers.
For 3 dice, there are 6 times 6 times 6 possible combinations of numbers = 216 .
The odds of the second roll matching the first are 1 in 216.
Color does not make a difference.
Suppose the first roll is red die = 1, white die = 2, and blue die = 3.
On the second roll, the odds the red die will be a 1 are still 1 in 6, the white die will be a 2 is 1 in 6, and the blue die a 3 is still 1 in 6. 1/6 times 1/6 times 1/6 is still 1/216.

I think you misunderstood the OP.
He said his dice were different colors. No mention of them being numbered. So I am assuming they are merely blank cubes of three differing shades.
Ergo, we need not multiply by six for each die, but rather only by one, as in one color.
So....3 dieX3 colorX3combo options=27=
261 odds of replication of 1st throw on 2nd throw.
And as you said, subsequent tosses have the same odds and are not influenced, nor are the odds any longer than the previous throw, even if it has happened 100 times.
Regarding
Q #2 we are dealing with the ageold "
theory of infinitesimals" which was perhaps most famously used in Zeno's Paradox.
Thus: yes, hypothetically, your uberpolyglon could have an infinite amount of sidesbut I think the term "facets" might be a bit more geometrically accurate. This actually is not too far removed from some of the various quantum mechanics models which speak of atoms not really consisting of the old "solar system" model (Rutherford's standard model) but rather of a nebulous electron cloud hovering in attimes multiple states around the nucleus. Exact position of the electron shells is not determined until observance takes place. (see:
Schrodinger's Cat).
