    great video too - obvious sales pitch aside, the production values put most youtube efforts to shame.

    if you're on the fence about these figures, pick up shockwave, you won't regret it. Blaster is - imo at least - less essential.

    blew me away

    Got these the other week and I have to say they are just amazing. Well worth the wait. Too bad I couldn't have ordered the repo stickers from tfsource at the same time.

    got em

    i bought these off ebay for 35 bucks the other day. my only complaint is the shockwave gun "where his arms are" move up and down due to them being on ball joints.so i find myself constantly fixing it.gets pretty aggravating because them move almost every time i touch him. i actually consider gluing them straight, but that defeats the purpose of him transforming. the blaster is effing awesome. i have him in his radio mode with my "ark playset" and it matches perfectly. and i bought a encore bruticus just so i could have him hold shockwave. this stuff is getting expensive. bruticus was 85 bucks and the playset was 189.00 . but well worth it if u ask me.

    p.s. the steel jaw is a nice feature but always has to be in blaster chest, because the feet and head and tail fall off all the time, and they are so small that i dont wanna lose just 1 foot or the tail.

    I picked up the shockwave one and I was amazed at the detail. The right shoulder is very loose and won't hold a pose at all which is a bummer. He is a great little toy though and I'm glad I picked him up.

    Does anyone know what shockwave that is in the video next to the actionmaster version?

    Time to be a pedantic idiot :p 

    Technically, the names of the original toys aren't "World's Smallest Transformers". In Japanese, they're called Kyokushō Henkei Transformers, or "Smallest Transforming Transformers". I guess WST caught on as a fan-name? Or something.

    Great reviews. It's amazing what they can do on such a small scale. The fact that G1 Bruticus can actually hold that Shockwave using the special fist makes me want to get him.

    I love how professional these videos are. Have to say that WST Shockwave is my favourite figure of the year so far...

    Loving the WST figures. Blaster's size goes perfectly with ALT/BT Tracks. Don't have a G1/Encore Bruticus. Maybe Shockwave will fit with FP's Explorer and Munitioner add on appendages for Energon Bruticus Maximus.

    WST Shackwave and Twincast were in the video near the end. Don't know how TFSource received pictures of those, but I hope they are released too.
