Pinpoint isn't the greatest PCC micron either. Having two targetmasters leaves Artfire's powered up alternate mode as looking rather horrendous. Artfire's meant to be a sniper... if a Micron was made to enhance Nightstick then that would be cool, but Artfire ain't much of a sniper if he has a rifle and a double barreled pistol.
Although that Targetmaster picture is tres bon.
I thought the Backwind min-con would have been a better addition
when I first viewed this, it's got a good rifle mode. Backwind also has flood lights and a hook, all things that would compliment a rescue vehicle like a firetruck. I'm glad I'm not the only one who thought the mini-con pairing could have been better.
All-in-all he looks ok. Not really the best looking version of the Inferno mold, but if you're looking for an update to Artfire, here he is.
I get why he is so costly, but it's not a dire figure and doesn't really deserve the high price considering Grapple was available when he could be found for $10. I think milking the fandom is getting out of control.
I do think Million Publishing does a great job in picking characters to offer as exclusives, though I wish they would offer them outside of Japan so they could be more economical. They'd probably sell more books too(instead of people just ordering the toy through BBTS or other retailers)
