how many of these signature editions are going on sale again? (or am I way too late to the party?)

Do you really want a wallet and stuff though? I like my special editions, but that's 300 bucks that could be spent on a g25/27

I got my hyperdrive cockpit two days after ordering it - and shipping was only 11 dollars. It's a lot of fun, once you manage to set it all up. Need to get the sitting distance right, but it beats the poop out having the wheel mounted to a table

They're pretty compact if you can be arsed packing it up each time, but they get heavy - it's made for the g25/27 so I've got mine bolted on, adds a few kilos.

If we weren't already struggling to hide clutter away for open homes I totally would (we have barely any storage space right now).. just to have to wait 'til I move closer to the exchange in Jan I guess
