    I saw one of him at Botcon and was just curious what does he usually go for, for a loose one, MIB and MISB.

    MISB= $800-$1000
    MIB= $500 or more
    Loose= $250-400

    Condition will bring or lower these prices. My prices maybe old since I was in the market for him about 2 years old. After getting him MIB, I stop paying attention to him on the auction sites. So I would be interested to hear what other folks have to say.

    What was the asking price for the one at Botcon?

    That does sound ridiculous. There was one on ebay not long ago it was around 1k. I think it was pretty nice too.

    He said it was and it looked to be in really good condition. I still figured though being as it was at Botcon that it would probably be listed a little higher than it actually should or usually goes for.

    The only reason artfire is soo cheap right now is because a case or two was found, now try and find a misb stepper.

    You got $2000 burning a hole in your pocket? :D 

    *thinking out aloud*
    If they went to the trouble of giving us Stepper during the TFC Reissue series, Surely it wouldn't have been that much of a stretch to reissue Artfire too?
    *scratches head*
