Edited by Jonathan Alderfer, it comes in two different editions, one with a padded cover ("deluxe") that costs $15 more than the "regular exclusive edition", which is going for $40. Would love to know if anyone's bought this yet or heard anything about how good it is.
I also got this mailer ... seemed like a good deal. Sent it in, ordering the cheaper version(higher in Canada than the U.S.)... notice said it would take about 3-4 weeks to deliver ... that was about two months ago.
