One of the first puzzles I showed on this forum was my Truncated Dogic. I was always a little frustrated with this puzzle since it fell apart very easily due to the tiny parts and nature of Meffert's Dogics. For that reason I have now made a Junior (or bandaged) version. It's a tiny bit stiff but on the whole moves pretty well. Unlike the other version it won't come apart with normal use.
I have used 20 different coloured (normal) stickers on the hexagons plus 6 different (Meffert's textured) ones doubled up on opposite sides on the pentagons making a total of 26 colours on the 32 sides. It solves the same as a Megaminx and is the same shape as the Tuttminx.
I may eventually sell one or two but I will have to wait a few months for the sticker bubbling to take it's predictable course.

Almost didn't recognize how it was related to the Dogic. The tiny points on the stars are those tiny black hidden pieces around the tips of the Dogic right?

Yes, that's correct.

I like the way it looks!

Is this a new puzzle, or is it one of the two puzzles your website says you have not revealed? (I ask because I noticed that this puzzle is not on your website)

I like this, but I still think that the original Truncated Dogic looks nicer. :D I can understand why you'd rather not cut up a Dogic though.

Very nice puzzle, but does this actually need to be made from a dogic, or can it be made from a regular megaminx?

AHAH!!! I finally see how this is solved like a megaminx.

At first while studying the cuts on the puzzle, I thought that Tony was smoking something Because It looked VERY different from a Megaminx.

My first thoughts were that it was like a deep-cut megaminx, because each turn affects the 5 "edge" pieces on the 5 adjacent centers.

However, I now realize that these "edge pieces" are effectively attached in pairs of 2, which makes it like a megaminx edge with the middle of the edge partially hidden underneath 2 extened Megaminx corners! (I feel so smart now :D )

Lines show "attachment" of pieces that appear to be separate
I'm glad I figured that out, it was bugging me all day.

Great work as always Tony, but as others are asking DID you make this from a Dogic? That was my first impression but I see how it could have been made from a Megaminx now.

Fantastic nonetheless :)
