    Hey all,
    I picked up WST megatron back during series 2. I remember when they were showing prototypes of series 2, they had the Silencer & stock as well, but those didn't make it the series 2 production (neither did hot rod (series 2.5) or Skids).

    Have those two parts for Megatron ever been produced, Either by Takara or a 3rd Party( similar to what Justitoys is doing for MP-05)?

    Don't believe so, but a member on here as used the stock and barrel (silencer) from a 20th Prime or MP to make one.

    There was a Tracks that didn't get produced, too... :(  I love my Smallest TFs, I hate that a few got left behind, especially in favor of rereleases in the last wave.

    I'm interested in possibly buying these. Does anybody have a list of all the WST Transformers released by Takara including the rare ones?

    Also why the hell does Soundwave go for so much???

    See... now I remember. Cool idea. I thought I had posted in the thread it was in, but I guess not.

    Got a picture to show the topic starter... maybe he'll be inspired to make something similar.

    So, a little off topic, but what's the difference between the anime Prime trailer and the toy Prime trailer? And wasn't there a Prime in Wave 2.5? I think it was just another one of the other two, but, still, I think it was officially included in Waves 2 and 2.5... I think... But I'm probably wrong...

    Differences b/w the trailers was just the stickers.

    Toy Trailer looked exactly like the G1 toy trailer.

    Anime Trailer had a white sticker with a red Autobot insignia like the cartoon.

    2.5 was Anime Prime like wave 2.0

    Aha! Cool, thanks! So was the Prime from the WST Prime vs. Megatron set any different from either the Wave 1 or Wave 2/2.5 Primes?

    i have the vs set and prime was toy colors (meaning dark blue with no white and had gold eyes) and megatron was pretty different from the mainline release (which i dont have because both cases i bought didnt have a megs in it)

    but the vs. set megs has blue instead of red on the inside of his legs and arm connectors. he also has red eyes (i think) and just a con symbol on his chest, none of the cool pinstriping
