Limited Quantity. Bundle with Seimitsu 40th Anniversary LS-32.
Seimitsu's long history began with an inquiry from Japanese arcade giant Taito. The solicitation: create a joystick with a metal mounting plate. What seemed like a simple request ultimately led to Seimitsu becoming its own powerhouse in Japan, maintain a full manufacturing presence in its home country to this day.
There's not much to review here, honestly. It is exactly what I was looking for, and I'm happy I bought it while it was available. I have it marked as 4/5 stars just because of cost. But that's not Focus Attack's fault, as far as I can tell. I think the limited production run and import costs are to blame here. It's nice and looks good on a shelf, but for $70, the material provided doesn't seem up to snuff. It was a nice touch, though, to have a few decals included to place on the stand, identifying the lever and parts as "LS-32-01 40th Anniversary Edition". Tommy
