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!

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

I've only spent time with Nightstick and it's fine

alright, time to gush a little bit. But only a littttttttle bit....

maybe not....

Ok. so I got Artfire, opened him and Nightstick up, and hot damn sweet Mary mother of the almighty hell's bells crackalacka. This figure is perfect. Like, he beats MP SG Prime out as favorite masterpiece. this figure is absolutely gorgeous and beautiful and oh man oh man oh man.

there may be many more pictures later, I am not sure, but there will be a few after my thoughts here at least.

His alt mode is gorgeous. The colored parts all phase together perfectly and the red, white, and black work so well together! the truck mode overall is gorgeous and has some really nice details and features despite the more cartoony look. the chrome is gorgeous, he rolls wonderfully, and I love how nightstick can use the ladder as a fireman partner.

Artfire's robot mode is sweet as well. The figure is so well proportioned and the articulation is great. He looks so good! everything feels right and where it needs to be, there is no kibble whatsoever, and he feels solid and heavy. And he has proven so far super fun to pose and play with.

Nightstick is a neat little dude and he is wonderful too. the robot mode is gorgeous and so articulated for a targetmaster, and the weapon mode is sweet! I love how they made this work.

And for both, the transformation is super fun and satisfying. One is fairly quick, another takes a bit more time, but both are an absolute achievement. the ladder magic is real, and I'm glad I got to witness it for myself.

Overall, both are amazing and I love the set. It is a great masterpiece and definitely the ultimate version of this mold. He is wonderful, and you should go get yours now. Do it.

The only thing that could make that Artfire even better were if it could have Nightstick ride inside his cab in vehicle mode.

If Artfire were a headmaster, there would certainly be room for him

For those that have it, how loose is the barrel on Nightstick in gun mode? Mine is very loose and doesn't really hold in place.
