Official Square Enix Lightning necklace? Anyone from Japan that can help?

So the North American site has more or less been disbanded and the Japanese site isn't shipping internationally. I've been saving up for the necklace and now that I have the money ... it's gone. Of course.

Does anyone know of any reputable sites that are still selling it? Or are any users here selling it? The only place I've found is eBay and they're charging double the price.

Or if anyone is in Japan that can order it or pick it up somewhere and can send it to me, that'd be freaking amazing too. I'd ask for a tracking number for the parcel and once I received that, I'd gladly send the money to you via PayPal!

You can use a shopping service for buying things from Japan.

The one I use would charge $20 as a service fee to buy the necklace (on top of base price, domestic shipping, and international shipping). This particular service does use Paypal (although doesn't require Paypal, since they also use a different method). You could look another for user reviews of services, I guess?

Why did I not even think of a shipping service?!

Which one do you use?

I use Celga. They charge increments of $10 for every 10,000 yen per store, so often I try to get as close to the limit to make the most of the service fee XD

Have you had any problems with them? It looks good, but I'd feel better if someone could vouch for them!

I have not had problems with them, so I haven't tried anyone else, and thus can't really offer much of a comparison (it's the same deal with taobaospree, lol; was satisfied so never tried anyone else).

I will add, though, that unlike with taobao shopping services, this one is more automated; you have to know what you want to buy. They answer questions regarding their service, but they won't contact the stores with questions or translate item listings for you. It's a non-issue for me since the language is no barrier.

I thought I would bump this since the Japanese Square Enix e-store currently has stock of Lightning's Pendant.
