CMC-AI Alternatives?

Hey guys, first post here. I recently took a job that requires me to travel quite a bit, so I'm producing out of motel rooms half of the month. Because of this I sold off all of my analog gear (filters, delays, reverbs, etc). I just can't lug all of that stuff around. The biggest thing I'm missing right now is the hands-on control I had with like filter cutoffs for example. The CMC-AI seems to be exactly what I need... just one knob, easily assignable to various parameters in Cubase, and very slim profile for my backpack. I was really disappointed to see Steinberg had already discontinued these controllers.

I haven't really used Midi controllers much in Cubase outside of just a keyboard, so my questions are:

1. Is there a similar alternative to the CMC-AI on the market?
2. There are dozens and dozens of Japanese sellers on Amazon supposedly selling this controller, but I can't find it anywhere else. Has me a little sketched out, why would there be so many available in Japan?
3. Is the CMC-AI even worth hunting down or will Steinberg stop supporting these controllers in future releases of Cubase?

The Steinberg CC121 is your best alternative if the CMC-AI is your target.
