After being a rumor for some time, we finally have confirmation, in the plastic, of the existence of the (obvious) repaint of Kingdom Inferno into Artfire! Via In Demand Toys' Factbook page (and thanks to Arturo C and Shiningstar7896 for pointing us in that direction) we have five pictures that show off the Japanese-only Targetmaster in a couple of nice action shots, as well as his vehicle mode and a an accessory shot which reveals that not only does he come with his Targetmaster partner Nightstick, a recolor of Siege Firebolt Firedrive, but two sets of blast effects, as well as the other accessories that came with Inferno.

For those who aren't aware, Artfire is a character who originated in the Japanese G1 continuity. His toy was released in 1987 as repaint of Inferno in the Headmasters toyline. This will be his first toy to be released outside of Japan, though a release date isn't mentioned or confirmed yet. Might we find out this coming Friday, at Hasbro's Fan First Friday event focusing on Transformers? Let us know what you think of Artfire, and whether or not you'll be picking him up when he's released.

I was hoping that if he did come with a targetmaster, he would come with two so poor Ricochet wouldn't be so lonely.

Luckily I did partner Rico up with Firebolt anyway.

Also, is it my imagination, or is there a rumour that Stepper and Artfire switched names? Artfire DOES have steps, and Stepper DOES have a fire decal on him...

Fan Speculation. Not a rumor from any source

Look like that site won't allow hotlinking. Better rework those pictures.

I personally think it would be neat if they recolored SS86 Jazz as Stepper (use the actual Takara Name), and release him with his Targetmaster. This way we get the proper name finally, and it differentiates it from Ricochet, the First Selects release which was a repaint of PotP Jazz.

Overquoting to say, yeah, it happened one or twice.
Each times it's annoying because my Adblock us set only to block "dangerous" adds. So if these pictures are blocked, it means there's some gremlins in them.

I can see the pictures fine, haven't had issues seeing any recent pics.

I am glad to see Artfire at last, and glad he has his targetmaster. I will gladly get him!

Neat! Now do Ricochet with his fella from SS86 Jazz.

A full repaint like Hauler makes sense to me. But Artfire looks incredibly lazy like they weren't even trying. It looks like a prototype Inferno where some of the parts haven't been molded in the final colors yet. :roll:

Wait, how is artfire "lazy" when inferno has no deco, he's just a red robot :roll:

He looks amazing, the white and blue really make the figure pop, can't wait to get him :DANCE:

I like this mold, though I have no interest in Artfire. I guess I'll have to hunt for a Nightstick to give to Cyclonus once this is released.

I'm hoping that Hauler is next for this mold. That I would get.

I really wish that they re-released the Classics 2.0 Nightstick since that figure could've probably pegged into the hand properly. At the very least they could've used a Battle Master or Takara Legends Targetmaster with one barrel, such is life. Funny aside, the only version of the Masterpiece Inferno mold I own is Artfire, never got a chance to transform it yet.

Some people expect Super Megatron levels of "repainting" each times I guess?

To some, redecos of any kind are "lazy" because "We could have gotten another character in a whole new mold instead!" >:oP

Redecos have been a a thing since Transformers even existed. It's a way to maximise profits, as usual.
AND OH MY GAWD, A REDECO IN A LINE SPECIALISED IN REDECOS?! WHATS THE WORLD COMING TOOOOOOOOOOO?
:HEADHURTS:
The horse have been beaten into powder at this point.
