    I just received my World's Smallest Transformers Hot Rod and was disappointed by the lack of rolling wheels. For those of you that have seen one, did I get a bootleg version or are they all lacking in rolling wheels? Thanks in advance for your help everyone.

    Yeah, you didn't get a knock-off, they're all like that. In fact, the only WSTs that DO have rolling wheels are Prime and Magnus.

    Rolling wheels on such a small scale is a hard thing to do and they take up a good bit of a figure in the Smallest line. Compare the level of molded and painted detail that went into some to the relative lack on Optimus and Magnus (and the two trailers, as well) Toys at that size dont roll very well anyway so I never saw it as such a big loss.

    Please understand that I am very happy with the little guy. The level of detail and quality of construction is excellent for something so small. Even the box is great. I just wanted to make sure that I hadn't been ripped off. Thanks for the help.

    No problem. I love WST Hot Rod. He especially looks good when placed on G1 Metroplex's ramp in vehicle mode, just like the G1 box art.

    I'd love to get a WST Hot Rod. Don't care if the tires can rotate just as long it's for a reasonable price.

    The Hotrod micromaster that comes with Star Convoy has rolling wheels I believe. I have to check to be sure.
