    As the title says, there just might be a Rodimus Prime in our future for us WST collectors.
    I just got a message from the seller who makes the WST KO's Ultramagnus, and Tigertrack and they are thinking of possibly making Rodimus Prime. I had suggested it to them the other day with the use of Takara's WST Hot-Rod.
    So how cool would it be to have Rodimus Prime in our collection of miniatures?

    I saw a Rodimus Prime WST on ebay over a year ago. It was the same seller who made Tracks and WST Targetmaster for Hot Rod. Hero, keep making the figures we need!

    I'd be interested, but not if it uses the existing WST Hot Rod figure as a component.

    I'd rather see one that is a tiny version of the G1 toy (a true WST basically) or an original design.

    It'll be interesting to see what they come up with if they do it. I suspect they'll just add the trailer to keep it simple.

    Oooh yeah, WST Rodimus from Heero is definitely a must have for me to go with my 5 version of WST UMagnus.

    Tigertrack, do you know Heero sell spare part for his WST UMagnus (I don't have his email)? I forcefully put the head into the chest plate trying to do like the diaclone and now that head has slight stress mark...agrrr.

    Not to mention being able to milk the hot rod mold. A brand new design would not only be spensive, but only good for maybe one or two figures ? rodimus and black rodimus is all I can think, lol..

    I love anything WST, but I couldn't care less for Rodimus Prime. I'd rather see the Tracks mold brought back. Rodimus Prime was one of the brickiest of all G1 molds, to this day I still don't like the character because the toy was so underwhelming.

    add on to hot rod? pass. faithful to the g1 stick, i'll bite, there's not enough moving parts on it to be that expensive anyways, and this is heero we're talking about, he'll recolor it every color of the rainbow just because

    True, and I was thinkin about that. I only thought with the new sideburn, there would at least be that but.. yeah, hotrod or rodimus, they'll be colored everywhich way anyway, and to that I say rock the fuck on = ). Id def be down for a new mold, and youre right, really might not be a lot in lieu of mold cost.. but the engineering it, can be kinda time and money sensitive too.

    I think it'd work better as a new mold certainly, but I'd buy probably 2 normal colors and a few others. Small Rodimus figures fit best on my shelf. :D 

    Short answer: YES PLEASE!
