    This is a bit of a pic request. I'm collecting all the WSTs, as well as the WST style combiner knockoffs. My main project is painting a WST Baldigus into G1 bruticus. But, at the moment i'm working on a side project of 'fixing up' a WST Superion, using reprolabels and repairing the crappy stickers that came with it.

    Unfortunately, most of my official WST collection is in Ireland, and i'm in Korea. So i have no idea of the relative scales of these guys. Does anyone have any comprehensive photo galleries of the official toys, the chinese micro combiners, and the justitoys dynobots?

    I would especially love to see a photo with micro AirRaid and WST Skywarp side by side. Are the two F-15s close to each other in size? That would be so great!

    Everybody, show the love for tiny transformers!

    Bumped for folks in different timezones. And becuase i'm slightly bitter than omegaknight saying he got a new transformer got twelve replies, and me asking for help got none.

    Where's redline? Isn't he a big WST collecter?

    I love that picture KA. I can't wait to get all of them, official, semi official and knockoff together for a photoshoot like that. Now, if only I had a Fort Max.

    They vary. The baldigus is excellent. The plastic and construction is at least as good as the official WST's. The arialbots aren't quite so good, bits do tend to detach. But i spent about three hours removing and trimming the stickers, and superglueing the weak points, and now its a great little piece, if I do say so myself.

    based on that pic, red, it looks like theyre actually proportionate to the size difference of the original g1 toys.

    Thanks a lot! Thats the exact photo I was looking for. I'm actually suprised by how much bigger skywarp is. I've held both, but never at the same time. I thought they were much closer in size.

    Btw, your collection is absolutly amazing.

    I'm going KO hunting next weekend around the markets of Seoul, do you want me to pick you up a few if i find any? They're dead cheap to buy and ship. Which ones are you missing? Have you seen the WST KO landcross and liokaiser? Also did you notice that RM starsabre is relatively to scale with WST as well?

    no I didn't realize he was in scale.. hm, that's pretty cool. I'll list what I'm missing in order of their priority to me, how's that?

    Clear Skywarp and Thundercracker
    Black Prime (the one with the regular(but black) NOT G2 trailer)
    Devastator
    Menasor
    Clear Blue Prime

    I'm not gonna worry about the RM Starsabre, but only because I plan to get the 4 seekers from that line at some point, and I'll probably try to get all them at the same time, and I can't afford to get 6 RMs and all the KOs at once! If you get any of those on my list, let me know, and thank you in advance, hell,thanks for just offering :D

    If this offers good to anyone, I'd like a few.

    Devestator ( green )
    Defensor
    Bruticus
    Menasor x2
    Superion

    Are there any others that I don't know about? Like Abominus or Computron?

    Is there any website from which to order these besides eBay?

    Do I just search for Defensor, Menasor, etc?

    There don't seem to be many website selling them. The offer is good to anyone who posts in this thread. As for searching ebay for them there seems to be a bit of a drought recently. I'm hoping it's because they've all ended up in the backstreet markets of south korea!

    Insane galvatron, there are a few others of note.

    Devestator (G1) is only available in Green, and he's great.
    Bruticus isn't strictly available, its actually baldigus, and he's probably the best of the bunch.
    Others that are available are Liokaiser, with one wonky limb.
    Landcross, who's excellent.
    Micromaster sixliner (the train guys), in official colours but smaller than the real ones.
    Micromaster sixbuilder, also smaller than the original.

    I'll just grab as many as i can find, especially of the G1 guys.
