    We call this a Love Dodecahedron, I think. Check it out and see if it's different enough.

    ^ It looks identical to me. I'm calling Motion To Discard unless the sponsor points out how it's a separate trope.

    Yeah, this is Love Dodecahedron. MTD.

    EDIT: Also: Pentacontagon?

    Sorry, when searching for a trope like this, I didn't saw that one. I approve of the motion to discard.
