    The paint joint is sort of lacking but will still pick him up.

    Don't worry, I'm 99% sure someone will work up a cherry picker for the mold on Shapeways. (Which I will then buy for Grappel, because a work truck of that size looks ridiculous with a crane arm on it.)

    Wow, TWO Targetmasters? That's a nice surprise I wasn't expecting.

    Artfire himself looks great. I'm glad I have a preorder in already. Can't wait for this thing to arrive.

    At least Bodhar....beyond him, I guess check Junkion or post in one of the threads around here and see which other Japanese members are willing to be the middleman for overseas members for this one.

    I thought the crane would be remolded but I guess the targetmasters can plug in there anyway by the look of it.
    Speaking of targetmasters.. he has two? Weird, but why? Well, cool bonus I guess.

    The crane arm sticks out like a sore thumb in that grey paint scheme. Besides the crane he looks pretty sweet though and I will get him.

    $140?...Absolutely NOT. Same with Stepper. Drop the price...it's JUST a repaint.

    Wow, as if Artfire isn't obscure enough already, he comes with Sparks, Hot Rod's targetmaster in the Marvel comics.
