You sure you're thinking of the right hopper? GI has their Pulse RDR hopper which internally resembles the "classic" Halo loaders, Machine has the Gear, which is somewhat similar to the Rotor and has a much simpler board than the Pulse RDR. The Gear was fully released also, I have 2 of them in fact and at least 2 months ago, you could purchase them from Machine's website.
