    Nope, the rarest are Skywarp, Thundercracker, and the red Bumblebee. But those two are rarer than most other figures, Bluestreak moreso than Jazz.

    Thrust goes for almost nothing. Prime might depend on the version, the anime one being cheaper. Megatron and Prowl are around $5-10 these days, but used to be a bit cheaper in the past. Don't really see much of Prowl either, I don't think. But even then, Megatron's your cheapest WST aside from Thrust. No love for a conehead? I thought he was one of the better ones myself.

    What about a White Convoy(a.k.a. Magnus)
    It's the only one I'm really interested in.

    About how much do Skywarp, Thundercracker and red BB run? Also, what about Red Alert and Hot Rod?

    Hmm. I think Red Alert and Prime are as close to Thrust in price as WSTFs can be these days, maybe not quite as pathetic.

    Those three chases are insanely rare and expensive, but are hard to pin down a price because they just don't show up often enough. Probably over $100 these days?

    Magnus is expensive, but not seeker-expensive.

    Hot Rod is a chase figure, but also had a release as a promo figure in a single box. I think he's around $30? I can't be positive about him.

    The prices are all over the place with these WST's. eBay would be a place to benchmark the price, but even there nothing is consistent. Something I found for cheap in the Junkion here, goes for up to 10 times as much on eBay.

    Back when I first came to these boards, I scored a WST Magnus for under $10. Loose and complete.

    I picked up almost every WST in my collection for under $10.
    Jazz
    Bumblebee
    Ultra Magnus
    Prowl
    Red Alert
    Sideswipe
    Soundwave w/ ravage
    Starscream
    Megatron
    Optimus Prime
    Nemesis Prime (unofficial, but still cool)

    Hot rod is usually about $20 shipped. But aren't you basically getting the same thing if you buy the reissue Star Convoy? So why not get them together for like $60-$80.

    The bluestreak sometimes is like $20 or more, but you don't see them that often.

    The one I recently acquired was a Red Bumblebee for about $50 shipped from Canada. So glad to finally have him. I had seen the buy it now on eBay for $150 for so long, but I also saw that someone in the Junkion had one for $20. But I missed it.

    So really, use the boards first. Thats my advice if anyone is looking to buy.

    I'll echo that last statement, definitely. For nearly every WSTF I have, though not many, I never paid more than $5 or $6 individually.

    It's why I was mostly rating the WSTFs on a scale of rarity rather than assign specific prices. But even now, Thrust is still dirt-cheap. It's really not fair.
