    Eh? I think for a C7-C8 MIB stepper goes around $200

    Again, I'm not good with prices but that's what my gut feeling tells me. Especially since he's been reissued already. :dunce

    even unused with all the paperwork unused also.i know the loose ones go that high, but i dont surf the yj, so i dont really have a clue.

    but i will say this, i've had an easier time finding unused mib atrfires than finding unsed steppers.

    i thought i saw a MIB stepper on ebay ended around $200-$300 some time ago. But it was in rough shape. Not 100% sure. If it's unused with all the paperwork, I think I would offer $400-$500 the most.

    That's a tough call there. I remember back at one of the Botcons, someone paying $700 for a boxed one, stickers applied and that was from the Japanese dealer table.

    But then came the re-issue........

    I haven't followed it that closely since, but every other toy that's been re-issued has taken a hit. Toys that were priced the highest have taken the hardest hit. And I'm a perfect example why. I'm a serious TF collector and Stepper would have probably been the next on my list... But having a re-issue has taken away any motivation I might have had for paying that kind of money.

    My gut feeling is that guy is asking too much.

    I agree 100% if they didnt reissue him id gladly drop $500ish for one, but since the re-issued him ive seen a few on yahoojp for $200 and they were listed for months before someone finally bought him.

    I'd be real surprized if he auctioned it off and got more than half of $700.

    Then again, I'd never pay that myself. I got the Takara re-issue, but that's me.

    I do understand wanting the real deal. Good luck, I hope you can talk him down.

    EDIT: 2500 posts, yay!
