I'm looking for an official, first-party Wii component cable, model # RVL-011.

It has 5 connectors. Red, green, & blue for video, plus red & white for audio, as pictured:

To check if it's an official cable, see if the Nintendo name and model # are stamped into the console plug.

I'm aware that it can be ordered from nintendo.com, but the price to Canadians is $35.99 (compared to $29.95 for Americans). I've checked eBay as well, but the pickings (especially those that will ship to Canada) have been slim lately...

For a cable in good cosmetic and working condition, I'll pay $26.05 CAD, shipping included.

EDIT: Found one on eBay for just 40 cents above what I was asking.

There's no guarantee that one from the Amazon Marketplace will be authentic (there is one on Amazon.ca that clearly states so, but it's $40 + shipping). Gamestop (EB Games up here) might have something, but odds are they know how much a new one costs, and will price the used ones almost as high. EDIT Probably the same with my local independent game store.
