    Okay, so who here collects these little guys? So far, I've just gotten into it and already I love them so much, because even though the combiners are mostly bootlegs, they're still just perfect for if you wanna take your collection over to a friend's house to show em off, you just get out a large Ziploc baggy, load em up and take them with you since they're that small lol. Right now I have the following figures:

    Optimus Prime (Clear)
    Motormaster (Part of a KO Menasor Set)
    Nosecone (Part of a KO Menasor Set)
    Afterburner (Part of a KO Menasor Set)
    Drag Strip (Part of a KO Menasor Set, head broke off)
    Breakdown (Part of a KO Menasor Set)
    Hot Spot (Red Variant, Part of a KO Defensor Set)
    Streetwise (Part of a KO Defensor Set)
    Groove (Part of a KO Defensor Set)
    First Aid (Part of a KO Defensor Set)
    Blades (Part of a KO Defensor Set)
    Hook (Part of a KO Devastator Set)
    Long Haul (Part of a KO Devastator Set)
    Mixmaster (Part of a KO Devastator Set)
    Bonecrusher (Part of a KO Devastator Set)
    Scrapper(Part of a KO Devastator Set)
    Scavenger (Part of a KO Devastator Set)

    Expecting:
    Optimus Prime (Normal variant)
    Silverbolt (Part of a KO Superion Set)
    Air Raid (Part of a KO Superion Set)
    Sky Dive (Part of a KO Superion Set)
    Fireflight (Part of a KO Superion Set)
    Slingshot (Part of a KO Superion Set)

    More on the way hopefully!

    I recently picked up Justitoys' WST Snarl from TFSource. He's pretty neat.
    Thinking about getting WST Grimlock.

    Check out Redline's collection gallery, he's got most, if not all of them.

    The Takara ones are great, much better quality than the combiner KO's. Reprolabels have stickers to make them a bit more G1.

    I had to laugh because of all the "WST" figures you listed, none of them are actually from Takara's WST line. :)  Or did Takara do a clear Prime?

    I love the WST figures and snatched up most of them when they first hit back in 2003 or so. I never did get all the variants, but I was able to track down the core figures. Primes trailer was a bitch to find a few years ago, as was Hot Rod.

    Soundwave is easily my favorite and his little Ravage still makes me shake my head in awe. Sure, Ravage only vaguely resembles an animal when transformed, but the fact that they even went to that much effort is jaw-dropping to me.

    As for the unofficial WST figures, I really liked the Dinobots and I am eagerly awaiting Blaster and Shockwave. I hope Justitoys keeps making them as they sometimes give the figures improvements over their G1 counterparts and it's always exciting to see what they'll tackle next.

    I remembered your gallery, as I'd posted a pic of the Wonderfest Megs attachments, that turned out to be yours.

    Doesn't WST stand for World's Smallest Transformers, yet the title says World's Smallest Transformers Transformers?

    Interestingly enough, their actual correct name is "Smallest Transforming Transformers", but that's been pretty much ignored. WST is a fan term that was quickly picked up.

    I have almost all of the Takara ones, about 4 of the KO Seekers, and the Dinobots set. I love them, they are among my favorite Transformers of any size.

    the plastic is a little cheap (it is a bootleg after all) but for the most part is pretty close to the original except blades rear piece goes to one side instead of both, hotspot is red and his arms do not go up, but transformation is mostly the same, pretty damn good for a bootleg and fits in nicely with the authentic ones. i bought them all as a set from Genzaho, i am pleased overall with my purchase

    yeah Defensor's pretty nice. a little cheap, but that's to be expected. He's fairly stable as well.

    They're alright. I only have my two fave bots. Don't plan on getting anymore, but I collect anything Starscream and Prime.
