Can't wait to find out what Artfire's extended profile says about himself.

I think out of the whole set I'm looking forward to the Targetmaster the most

anyone with both Grapple and Inferno able to recognize which parts are used from each? Is this head new or one of those alternate heads reused? Thanks in advance!

Identical to Inferno but with Grapple's shoulder disks.

I wonder why the change, the original toy was a straight inferno repaint.

To better resemble the original toy, basically. Inferno is made to, of course, better resemble his show model; so he doesn't have the shoulder discs his original toy (and hence Artfire) had.

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.
