That's one nice-looking Nightstick. 8-)

Interesting that the pre-applied decals almost exactly match those made by Reprolabels/Toyhax for Masterpiece Inferno. I wonder if Takara did that purely as a nod to the G1 toy or if they are trying to undercut Toyhax...

I'm really excited for the figure. First time experiencing the mold. Hopefully, when we get a Masterpiece Cyclonus, Nightstick is included.

Only if Takara is willing to homage the American fiction since the G1 Cyclonus toy never saw release as a Targetmaster in Japan.

Wasn't Cyclonus a Targetmaster in the Headmaster cartoon?

No, Cyclonus, Scourge, Hot Rod, Kup, and Blurr never became targetmasters

Then why did the Henkei toy do the Targetmaster trick?

It was an easter egg, not an actual thing that ever happened

Nope. Only three Autobots and three Decepticons were Targetmasters in that show (Blanker, Crosshairs, Sureshot, Triggerhappy, Misfire, and Slugslinger) and only as a result of a freak accident.

TFsource got their stock in. Ordered mine so he should ship out early next week. Will photograph him when I get the package, open him, and have the service to post stuff in like 2 and a half weeks

Just FYI, I was hawking Amiami to see if they would have anymore inventory after they had filled their pre-orders. As of right now Artfire is still listed as "Add To Cart" i.e. in stock for 11270 JPY. Which as of right now is $102.08 USD before shipping.

I hemed and hawed and wished and washed until all the pre-orders were gone. Glad it worked out. Really excited for this guy. I bundled him to ship with MP-Primal so I'll have to wait until the end of the month for his release, but excited none the less.

It will be a masterful haul!

Was wondering if and when you'd pick up on of the three. Looking forward to reading your thoughts about it!

Thanks to the Chosen Prime's YouTube channel, we have for you all a video review of Takara Tomy's latest Masterpiece offering; MP-37 Artfire! In addition to comparing Artfire to previous iterations of the mold, we can also check out the line's first Targetmaster partner, Nighstick. We have mirrored the video reviewbelow for your viewing convenience.

So I finally opened up my Artfire to find that nightstick has two right legs. Anyone else have this issue?
