    I am very interested in very small transformers now WST, Micromasters, Legends and Legions now more than ever with the upcoming Fortress Maximus reissue and the newly announced Titan class Metroplex. I will be buying both city bots and want to make a epic and "in scale as possible" display area in my collection.

    Reissue FortMax and Titan Metroplex are now the 2 largest transformers in history and now I want to find THE smallest transformers in history to display them together. Any Ideas or suggestions? Pictures of such would be a great welcome as well.

    Now what about vehicle transformers? I heard that WST bumblebee is pretty small and that little minicon jet from Armada Tidalwave was small as well?

    Either WST Bumblebee, Armada Ramjet (Tidal waves minicon) or the little Optimus Prime that came with ROTF Stratosphere. WST Ravage is much smaller then all of them though.

    Me too but I don't think many is available. i looked at eBay and anything over 50$ is way to high for a WST in my opinion.

    I've been doing the same in preparation for Fort Max.

    I went the cheaper route and got a whole lot of bot shots, although I do have wst thrust.
    Can anyone comment on the obviously cheaper wsts from hong kong on ebay?

    Although it does not transform at all and it has NO articulation, Small Toy Shop Convoy is also extremely small, and he IS extremely detailed. Here he is, standing next to WST White Convoy.

    WST appreciation thread holds a lot of the answers you seek :)  Although I only collect the official Takara Smallest Transformers, I've heard nothing but good things about the knock off WST. And I'll be honest, quite a few of Takara's own official Smallest Transformers are pretty iffy: some are rather ambitious at their scale and don't always hold together very well (looking at you, WST Seekers and WST Megatron).

    If you're looking for a tiny vehicular Transformer, there's Kabaya Windcharger - he came with one of the three parts of Kabaya Fort Max, and is faithful to the original design. He's ludicrously tiny.

    Yeah I never had any of the WST but Thrust and even he was flimsy in one arm and had a loose peg for one of his weapons, I haven't heard any bad things about the knock off wst either.

    At that scale it would be pretty hard to even have an issue unless the plastic actually turned to dust there isn't much that would cause stress issues.

    What's the smallest that Hasbro/Takara ever released though? Has to be something like the headmasters for the headmaster juniors, right? Or is WST Hasbro/takara stuff? (Never got into it)

    WST Blaster has Steeljaw too.....not tried transforming him tho he's absolutely micro sized.

    EDIT - It does, but it's very delicate and bits fall off:

    They're top notch and sometimes improve on the originals, like Sideswipe coming with weapons. Ramjet and Dirge are beautifully made and go perfectly with Thrust. WSTs are a fantastic range to collect, I haven't even started on Justitoys phenomenal Dinobots and Sixshot.
