    I know it's frowned upon, but can't you retract your bid?

    Yeep. I'd retract your bid on that anyhow. It's just a pre-order... you're paying an extra $30, including shipping, and wouldn't be getting the fig any sooner than anyone else.

    Ebay:
    From that same link:

    If you are not allowed to retract your bid during the last 12-hours of the listing, you may contact the seller to request that your bid be canceled. The seller will have the discretion whether to cancel your bid.

    Chances are if you utter the magic words "I wont be able to pay for it" they'll axe your bid without too much argument. There's nothing to be gained for them not to.

    Why would you even bid on that in the first place? The guy has zero feedback, and it sounds like he's going to go buy it at the store when it comes out and send it to you (if he can be trusted).

    SO not worth the time, money, and risk.

    Yes, I know, this was a critically stupid decision of mine.
