    Hello Everyone!

    I'm thinking about collecting these and wanted to know if anyone can provide me with a list of what is available and a rundown of the cost for each.

    Any help is appreciated.

    Also, I look forward to any opinions about WST as well.

    This is my collection of one of each mold (both official & non-official)

    If I were you, I'd try to nab the Prime/Megs VSX 2-pack (approx. $20). The shortpacked Prime w/ trailer can go for quite a bit of money but I've heard the KO version is quite reasonably priced (& the quality ain't too bad either).

    Prowl, Sideswipe, Jazz, Screamer, Bumblez, Hot Rod, Thrust & Red Alert are about $10-15 each. The extreme prices of Cliffjumper, Bluestreak, Magnus, Skywarp & Thundercracker are definitely not worth the money they're being asked for. Soundwave has also exploded in price in recent times ($40+) & I'd only suggest getting him if you can find him cheap.

    The non-official WSTs are quite good quality & the Dinos/Blaster/Shockwave are all about $10-15 each.

    IMO, They're a quirky little niche line and you'll either be a big fan or you'll think they're a massive rip-off for their miniscule size. I personally can't get enough of them. :)

    I wish Takara hadn't given up on WSTs, they were a great line. Anyone know if there's a way to get Skids or Tracks?

    There are also unofficial WSTs of Dirge, Ramjet, the Constructicons, Aerialbots, Protectobots (with red Hotspot), Bruticus (in RiD colours), and an incomplete Menasor (couple of WST Technobots for limbs!).

    Someone else would have to do the Prime/Magnus and Countach versions, but for the unofficial/KO seekers:

    Regular Deco:
    Thundercracker
    Skywarp
    Starscream
    Starscream (e-hobby black/gold deco)
    Dirge
    Ramjet
    Sunstorm
    Acidstorm
    G2 Starscream
    G2 Ramjet

    Clear/Crystal/Ghost:
    Thundercracker
    Skywarp
    Starscream
    Starscream (ehobby black/gold deco)

    Clear/Glow in the dark:
    Thrust
    Ramjet
    Dirge
    Starscream
    *the above 4 were also done in a chrome finish - neither set has been seen in a long time. Each was sold as a set of 4.

    All of them are commonly referred to as the 'heero' or 'heerotoysmaker' WST's, which was their old ebay username. Their current ebay username is aqualands. What's available tends to really fluctuate - right now the G2 stuff is easy to find, along with the occasional Skywarp, Ramjet, Dirge, and Sunstorm/Acidstorm. I haven't seen clear SW & TC in a long time. It's relatively easy to spot them from the official WST's, since only the original trio + Thrust were made officially, and the KO's do not have the proper deco like the official ones do. The Reprolabels for the WST's do a great job of fixing that. Heero's seekers also have null-rays instead of the G1-style launchers, and unpainted faces. With the null-rays and the Reprolabels, I actually like the KO Skywarp and Thundercracker figures better than the original/official ones.

    An official Thundercracker is the hardest one to find...I've seen only one solo listing in the past year for about $150 or so as a BIN and it sold quickly...the only other two I saw show up were part of large lots. The 2.5 case received a much smaller distribution than the other two, and as the chase figure Thundercracker is a bitch to find. I still stalk eBay for one.

    The other chase figures are available intermittently (I almost always see a Skywarp and Magnus when I do a general search). If you're lucky/patient, you can catch a BIN for them that's cheap (how I picked up both Skywarp and Silverstreak).

    Soundwave, despite not being a chase, was as expensive as them, but recently an unofficial version has popped up on eBay. If you want an official one, it may be best to pay for a MIB one with the paperwork and box/bubble still (as far as I know the KO doesn't also knock off the packaging and paperwork) but be prepared to pay out the nose for him. Soundwave's another that you can occasionally catch a cheap (relatively speaking, of course) BIN.

    As far as current pricing for a couple of the more exclusive WST are concerned: I bought an MIB Thundercracker in June 2011 for a little over $100. Same seller sold me MIB Red Bumble for about $85 and MIB Soundwave / Ravage for about $75.
    A year earlier, Skywarp cost me around $45.
