So... any of you guys want to say you told me so... yeah...
Artfire was only present in the comics, right? I cannot remember seeing him in the cartoon (Season 1-4 or The Headmasters)?
So that's that sorted lol.
Mp38 Hauler? Get all the repaints out stat?
I guess this proves that Arturo from Facebook is not a viable rumor source.
I'm in for this. Love the deco and the target master.
It's just great to see TT pump out these figures at almost one a month. Repaints, exclusives, and the flavour of the month (currently beast wars) included.
January MP-34 Cheetor
February MP-35 Grapple
March/April MP-36 Megatron
May MP-37 Artfire
???? MP-11ND Dirge
We could be at MP-44 by years end.
Oh my god! Is that a.....decent face?????
Only if you plan on using the targetmaster mold for something else? The targetmaster just opens up more options. I would love me a MP Triggerhappy, but the way they are going all out with accessories some of the moviebots could have target masters.
Skyfire... Artfire... Close! Lost in translation.
Well, I guess that's a win for anyone who figured we'd see Artfire or Hauler soon!
I didnt see him so soon. I was sure they would follow mp-36 with a cheaper release. Hopefully the yen exchange is even better in may, it would be nice to get for under a $100 USD. If Inferno is "search&rescue" this guys screams "search&destroy" thats a nice contrast when the main difference is coloring choices oh and a targetmaster .
Not one of these offerings even appeal to me. What happened to Masterpiece? Oh well. Plenty of catching up to do
Artfire! So psyched for that one. Hoping the colors are just as striking in person as the ones on the "G1" original and the Million Publishing exclusive Generations version.
Maybe this opens the door for Stepper if we ever get MP Jazz.
And since repaints are in the air... maybe a G2 Ramjet next year? (and if I'm talking about Jazz, I'd buy a G2 version of him, too).
Hmmm. So, in May we have Artfire and Dirge in June, I wouldn't be surprised if we see diaclone/black Ironhide slated for July and then we get a new mold in August, a +release for September, repaint/retool of July's new mold in October and finally one more new mold for November/December.
That would get us 4 new molds in 2017....
Cheetor, Megatron, ?, ?.
This wouldn't surprise me too much if it turned out this way, 2016 only had 5 new molds released, 6 if you count the coneheads as a new mold.
I've got to admit, I'm really surprised to not have seen a Diaclone Vannette yet. They've generally gotten to those fairly quickly. TT must want to test the waters on Master characters with Artfire.
Is Artfire's Targetmster new, or a repaint of the one that came with Rodimus?
It's a brand new mold.
Wow, Godbomber seems pretty out of nowhere
Edit: legends not masterpiece! My bad
A red and white Inferno. No thanks, easy pass.
I did previously state a few posts back that the logic behind this one was set. I did think it would have been a possible eHobby release. I now concur that it will be Hauler that will be the eHobby or TTMail release. It seems like TT want to get all the money from this mold and retire it quickly.
I hypothesis that the Van bro's have generated steady yet slow sales. A repaint would likely not sell a great many units similar to Road Rage. I'm guessing a black diaclone will be a super limited release randomly thrown out there into the wild.
I really think MP 39 will be Jazz followed shortly by Stepper w/ targetmaster with different box art on the rear pairing him with Artfire.
I'll be getting Megatron, Dirge, Artfire, Starscream, The cassettes, Red alert +
And then the reissue of Inferno & Grapple when they come back around, what a time to be alive.
