    Got the universe Inferno dismantle more than a year ago, lol. At that time, couldn't decide what to do with him and had been sitting on table ever since. Until the news of a grapple coming next spring, hence I decided to go with Artfire.

    He's not really mainstream figure, but I thought he was cool and was also suggested by a late friend - Astrobard.

    Update: Here's the final version of Classic Artfire w/ Nightstick.

    Alt mode: I changed the color placement slightly from the original toy. It was just white front and red at the rear part of the truck. Seem kindda awkward to me, hence I added the stripes on the truck. Extending from front to back, to mix up the white and red a bit.

    And the number 108 on him is also paying homage to the G1 released, C-108.

    In memory of Astrobard.​


    C&C welcome.

    I've got more pic here :)  >>Here<<

    Nothing to crit from what I see. Just looks awesome (better than Grapple in my opinion). Nice clean paint apps and really good decal, too.

    That is looking great so far - Artfire is a perfect repaint of this mold (obviously enough :p ) - will you be doing the target master partner as well?

    Surprised Hasbro/Takara haven't already got this down as a release with Hauler - they love their repaints!

    Looking forward to seeing more of this!
