I've made a couple new mods, the Cushion Cube, and the Shepard Pyramorphix. Please let me know if the names are already taken. The Cushion Cube was inspired by playing around with an unstickered truncated cube. The Shepard Pyramorphix was inspired by having a realy crappy pyramorphix and wanting to make it more interesting after I figured out how to solve my Shepard Cube.

The Shepard Pyramorphix is stickered with white and yellow stickers, so you can solve the colors, the arrows, or both. The arrows are oriented so that if you follow the "flow" they make a complete circuit around the puzzle.

Both of these are up for sale/trade if anyone is interested, make an offer through pm/email and we can work out something.

Does the cushion cube look like this?

If so, I discussed this about a week ago here

It's a nice mod, but it looks identical to Supermans idea...

I'm cool with it anyway. It's not like I made a finalized product like he did, I was just showing a cool mod that I thought would be fun to do. I used my half-truncated for other things anyway. I think it would look more like the pillow cube if you truncated those two sides like in my picture, but it's your call.
