Sorry to hear that, Sith. What was the shipping cost listed on the Project 1/6 store? $22 seems high.
I tried that same route with the bidding service I use, Shopping Mall Japan, when the carded Darth Dagobah was coming out. They accepted my order but then cancelled it when they realized they'd have to buy it on a certain day/time (I think that day was on a weekend when their office was closed.)
