Competition Pro 5000 gold 25th edition retro stick.

Firstly, forgive me for any typos as I'm posting this on my phone.

Someone sent me this link so I thought I'd share it with you. It's a gold edition Speedlink USB Replica of the Competition Pro 5000 joystick released to commemorate the 25th anniversary...probably.
 
I've got the original clear USB stick and it's a damn fine replica. Perfect for WinUAE etc.

Thanks for posting this Steve. If there's any left at the end of next month I'll buy one.

Thanks

That's pretty cool, though I'm not really sure about the colour....

What would have been really cool would be to have it dual function....old retro style D9 and modern USB style, wouldn't really take much electronics either.....

Cheers.

Phill.
