    I was wondering when this would pop up. I'm guessing the US online retailers don't get their stock in until end of next week, at the earliest?

    Random realization, but since Artfire is packaged in 'bot mode, this means the first time I will ever actually transform this mold is whenever I get around to picking up a Botcon Pyro.

    An Inferno with some white repaints. Not too sure if it's worth the money......

    Artfire is a nobody, a Japanese-exclusive targetmaster repaint of Inferno who had a grand total of 2 media appearances. I cannot fathom why some people are so enamored with him.

    I got mine today - and one's up in my sale thread :) 

    For those of us who bought him at retail, he actually wasn't that expensive... So...

    After so many delays... atleast he's finally been released. It looks like I won't have mine until early January but... eh... what's a few more weeks of waiting?

    So bad news and good news all at once. Bad news is they didn't do the soft grey for his head, fists, and etc. Good news is since it's black plastic, I can swap that ******ed crane shit out for Hot Spot's gun. Once I can chase down the dude, I'll get to swappin'. Then it's off to find a home for the PCC mold TM.

    There were no delays... He's actually been released a little earlier than expected. What are you talking about?

    After playing with him for a while... Overall, I like him. I'm a huge fan of anything Targetmastery... But... The crane isn't actually big enough to fit a 5mm post through its eye without stretching. That means that, unless you want to stress the crane hook, you can't really use the targetmasters in vehicle mode, nor can you use his "long range" sniper mode in robot mode.

    It feels very cobbled-together :( 

    Fortunately, the colors work REALLY well, and he can at least carry the two targetmasters... So still a positive in my book :)

    But G1 Artfire had a grey ladder, not a black water cannon. How would Hot Spot's gun be an improvement?

    Couldn't you just push the two figures together against (but not in) the crane hook? Wouldn't the force keep them in place or is that not the case?
