I hate to say it but this seems like an old amazon standard. Every once and a while a long out of stock item is suddently listed in stock, sometimes it is legit but sometimes it is just a glitch. It does happen occasionally, so don't be too surprised if you get the old your item is no longer in available email, or worse still an ROTS Obi.
Even so I'm pulling for you Aayla, especially considering the going rate for the AOTC mini. :D
