Cowboy Studio should jump all over this. The cost of mainstream light modifiers is rediculous considering the costs of manufacture.

It folds up flat for storage, and opens up to be a (roughly) pyramid shaped box
with highly reflective inner surfaces, and straps directly onto the flash head.

Mounted on the camera it looks like this:
