    Sweet! I can't wait! Good timing too since the Shooter Masters are finally in production. Now we just need the other classics Targetmasters... (Pointblank, Sureshot, Triggerhappy, Scoop, etc)

    I tink of Artfire as being Inferno in different colors rather than a seperate individual.

    Good thing he has the blue, two Targetmasters, and Grapple's crane arm.

    Considering how the original figure looks, this one knocked it out of the park with making lots of changes and including the Targetmasters to really sell the homage.

    Who else besides TakaraTomy through Million Publishing would have made those changes? We wouldn't have gotten the Targetmasters any other way, and with their inclusion they can turn Grapple's crane into a water pump.

    Any other Artfire in any other situation would have probably just been Inferno with no changes other than the paint job. :)

    I think they cost about $110 over there. You have to buy a book or something and then there was a special coupon to mail in. These were made to order so it depended how many coupons they got before they went into production.

    6,000 Yen ($73 USD) but like was mentioned before you had to buy the Million Publishing Generations 2012 book, which was like $25 or so.

    Buying two is cheaper at $139 for 2.

    At first I thought it was horrible that they didn't do the soft grey for the head, fists, and other parts, until I realized that now I can swap that fucking terrible crane thing out for Hot Spot's cannon which had me stoked.






    Right up til I realized this one toy would cost as much as ten deluxes in the store right now.
