    The original colour one is, before there were only black and a plain white prototype one, so I thought it was worth mentioning here for those who were waiting for a proper colour one...

    Yep there was a wonderfest version I believe which is pretty hard to get hold off, this is a different mold and knowing heero should be far easier to get, and it's well done too, I got one of the black versions before these.

    This version is FAR superior to the wonderfest resin kit.

    Interesting that nobody is interested in "bigger" things like Fort Max.

    That is a lot to spend on a WST. I'm surprised the line still has a following.....

    That's a pretty high price for a toy that I could lose in my couch cushions. I think I'm fine with my original Magnus. Bigger is better after all.

    I just purchased the black version from fellow TFW2005, so I'm hoping it should be arriving by the weekend.

    As for the color version, I was going to bid from Heero auction, but I don't like the bidding process. Something doesn't look right. I've been noticing the price moves too simultaneously or the same rate/ amount between the two auctions. It happens on this one, the previous one, and the one before that. I don't know, should I trust to bid?

    The reason for them both prices increasing at almost the same is that if someone bids $50 on one, and they aren't top bidder on that, then they'll bid $50 on the other to try and win it at the cheapest price. Simple really, no con involved.

    I finally won mine the other day, can't wait to receive it, looks so much better produced than that crappy resin kit. Also cheaper.

    Apparently Fort Max will not be the last thing that stops them from "shrinking" bigger toys into smaller figures.

    I like my black one, no way I'd pay the end prices for those auctions. Especially as normally the way they go is the first few people pay a fortune and he keeps listing more until they're reasonable or nobody bids :)

    That is an awesome job, but its Heero and the guy is extremely talented. Although the price is ridunculous, especially when his complete G1 primes are BIN for $20 most of the time.

    Where did you find the pics for that Fort Max? Is that another WST figure? I recall seeing something about a WST Fort Max before but it looked nothing like that. Is the same person that is doing the WST Ultra Magnus also doing Fort Max figs?

    Yeah, that's what I'm gonna do. Wait until it becomes a reasonable price or nobody bid anymore just like the black Prime, ehehe. In the meantime, I'll get a better idea of the quality and the mold until my black version arrives.
