Just before a Fan First Friday stream, In Demand Toys has leaked stock photos for Generations Selects Artfire. SIGH. It’s not immediately clear if this would have been on the schedule for this stream’s reveals, since Selects often end up moving on their own speed for how and when they’re revealed or otherwise just suddenly appear for preorder or immediate purchase. So maybe this wasn’t one of Friday’s surprises spoiled. For a certain value of “spoiled”; Artfire has been known on reliable inside info lists since before Kingdom even began. But I digress.
Artfire is a redeco of Kingdom Inferno, as one would undoubtedly expect. Pleasantly unexpected though is the presence of a Targetmaster – or rather Battlemaster. Artfire comes with a redeco of Firedrive as Nightstick (but actually Fracas, because nothing can be simple), and two sets of blast effects in clear blue. We can now posit that Artfire’s Nightstick is in fact a Targetmaster water gun. Otherwise, Artfire is physically identical to Inferno, including accessory loadout. Because of the addition of Nightstick, it’s being speculated that Artfire will probably come in at higher-than-Voyager price, and that’s a reasonable conclusion, with a minimum of $35.99 being very likely.
In Demand, which is a UK shop, indicated preorders will be coming soon, but that doesn’t really give any indication of when Artfire might be released – nor does it preclude the occasional happening of some tiny store in Maryland or something magically getting an inventory of them without warning. Meanwhile, we’ll wait and see what develops for Fan First Friday and whether there are any surprises at all left.
