When I built the Truncated Icosahedron, I realized that the same technique could be used to make many other shapes. It was around the time In Sweden ( where I live ) that many folks put an advent star in their windows, so it was not hard to find inspiration ... just a matter of choice about how many points the star should have.

The model is just under half a meter in diameter, has 1246 parts, including 532 pins, and weighs about 920 grams. Just like with the paper advent stars, this one you can fold open and 'flat'.

A design for a support with holder for a LED light bulb is available here.
