does anyone know if there's a 12x12" (or similar) softbox out there that would fit onto a Canon speedlite, or could be adapted quite easily to do so?
I know there's Quantum softbox out there but that just seems to fit their own Q flash heads...
Any suggestions would be massively appreciated.

Lastolite do one, but seem to recall it wasn't very well reviewed - hotshoe strobes are just too small to perform effectively through a softbox. I do use a brolly on a lightstand for group shots and suchlike, but as a reflector rather than 'shoot-through'.
Sorry, dead link - try again;this time?
I use a 60x60cm softbox from ebay for £43. Excellent. It takes no time to set up and almost same as the Lastolite one for a lot less. Here is a link to the same one I have.
I have 2 of the Lumiquest speedlite s/boxes - the large size is a bit smaller than 12x12, but gives a nice soft light at the cost of 1 stop of light.
Fits using velcro, and folds flat easily into a bag. Quite cheap too.
