This is an interesting modification - it's very simple looking, but still cool. :D

It looks a lot like an irregular sort of truncated icosahedron...

This is a lovely shape! I count 20 faces... 2 hexagonal poles, 12 pentagons (6 around each pole), and 6 hexagons around the equator. Irregular Icosahedron?

If I'm not mistaken, this could be seen sort-of like a "Truncated" Hex Prism 2.
