Million Publishing, the company that will be bringing us the exclusive Artfire later this, or early next year, has updated their website with images from the Generations 2012 book.

In addition to page previews, a shirt featuring Artfire and his preceding exclusive Targetmaster buddy Stepper will be available.

The book is usually required to purchase the exclusive figure, but for those of us overseas, there are other means. Visit our sponsors to check for availability.

Sepultron
That is awesome.

But why the hook?
Hotspot17
The paint joint is sort of lacking but will still pick him up.
Matty
Fucking gorgeous. The mold is fantastic. Keeping my preorder as of RIGHT NOW.
General Tekno
Cool. So who do I talk to to get one from Japan direct?
Optimal Primus
That actually looks pretty good. Just might have to pick it up.
Counterpunch?

To hold the Targetmasters in vehicle mode.
Hooper_X
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.)
Lbsammills51
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.
aprim
WANT! Can't wait!
Grimlock_13
Ohholyshitawesome. I love me some obscure characters!!
Sinnertwin
Gorgeous.
miscreant
Is it me, or is the toy cast in that orange-red plastic?


I preordered, but i'm not sure how much i like it so far.
Obsidian X
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.

Two Targetmasters? Nobody screws with Artfire.

NOBODY.
process
And my terrible, terrible addiction continues.
Kenobi-bot
$140?...Absolutely NOT. Same with Stepper. Drop the price...it's JUST a repaint.
The Crow
AWWWW FREAKING CRAP!! I was avoiding Stepper cause of the price, but after seeing Artfire, going to have to grab both now!!!!!!!


WALET SCREAMS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Ricochet
The first Targetmaster is Nightstick, same as Cyclonus's. and the second Targetmaster is Sparks, inspired by the comics shown before.

about the detail:
- Order deadline is July 21.
- Order must be made via the postcard inside the book "Transformers Generation 2012".
- Up to 2 figures can be ordered with 1 postcard.
- The price is 6000yen for 1 figure, 11400yen for 2 figures. both includes tax and shipping.
- Shipping begins late December.
- No international order.
Rotorstorm
Wow, as if Artfire isn't obscure enough already, he comes with Sparks, Hot Rod's targetmaster in the Marvel comics.
puma
this makes me want to get Stepper as well. shit.
gothsaurus
Yeah, wow. It looks really good... and two targetmasters is a fantastic bonus. Very excited!
BScorpinok75
The temptation is taking over me
grimlock1972
I preordered and I am expecting my wallet to file for a restraining order any day now.
cyclonus8
Why don't they ever paint the line that separates the two front windows on this mold?
megatroptimus
Weak.
jerryitus
Can't wait, love the Japanese writing on the fenders to pay homage to the old days! Now I just need to find another gears of war ladder so that Artfire doesn't have an f-ing hook.
payton34
Damn, I'm going to have to order a second one now. Beautiful!

Totally agree, makes me really happy that I have stepper to go with.
TWINTURBO
Do want!!
WhiteMocha
Friggin' perfect.

And two targetmasters? That's a nice bonus.

Yeah, having a hook instead of a ladder is the one little compromise, but I
totally don't care. He's a.... fire crane. I can dig it.
Kevin XI
Artfire? Never heard of him. Must be Japanese. Definitely Japanese.
maximus_primal
Another great transformer that I knew would be a long shot hoped we would get. They finally give and I can't afford it. No fair once again Japan gets the cool stuff and we get left .
DPrime
Looks great, but like Stepper, just a bit too obscure for me to justify the price.

Nice for the more hardcore types, though!

yeah, it's a repaint, but it's a super awesome repaint of a badass mold... and relatively limited, right? does anyone know what production numbers are on figures like this?

yeah, i would love a ladder, but it doesn't matter... 2 Targetmasters, those colors look awesome, and all around i just love it...

just got my preorder in at BBTS, even with the 10 buck increase... in the last 30 minutes, they've gone from 27 left to 17 left... if you're waiting, you need to not do so anymore...

edit: 16 now... someone got one while i was typing this...
Maverick Hunter Christian
Hot scoops! I love it!
zephon
No way I'm gonna afford the original G1 Artfire so this is the next best thing to it! I bit the bullet with Stepper so I'm game with this one!

...Unless your one of the ORIGINAL Double targetmasters. then its freaking fair game.

Still its kinda nice that artfire is actually getting a release with TWO targetmasters instead of one,im guessing to differ him more from ricochet.

which i wonder if their going to do the original double targetmasters next,that got me wondering.
Thundershot
Awesome!! Totally not expecting Sparks (From Headmasters #4).

Rodimus will have another Nebulon!
Ruination04
Congrats for you guys who want him. I never understood the appeal of this character. He looks like he was "frankensteined" together with the his half red-half white colors.
BScorpinok75
Down to 14 left available for pre order.

Japan never got the original double TMs...

But Cybertron Landmine, Energon Demolishor, and Cybertron Quickmix ( despite his size) would make nice Scoop, Landfill, and Quickmix exclusives.
Jarodimus
HOLY~~

Absolutely beautiful. He shall be mine.
G1Prowl
So the only thing I'd have to worry about other than the price is pawning off that horrible PCC micron? Decisions decisions
Deefuzz
Ugh. I was really hoping I wasn't going to like this one. But it's gorgeous, and it's a mold I never bought before.

Now I need to get him AND Stepper!

Poor poor wallet...
Crimson87
Artfire.... I want one, but $140-150 BBTS for what should be a $30 toy. That is really hard to justify. Hell, third party usually doesn't even get that outrageous.
Un_Chakal
Well all gone from BBTS...

First thing I did when this was announced. Almost wish I had ordered two for the Hotspot repaint, but one will have to do for now. This figure is going to hurt, but so does going to the gym, but it is a good hurt.
