World Smallest Transformers (WST) Optimus, Ultra-Magnus, Tiger Tracks & G2 Optimus

My first World's Smallest Transformers (WST) was a VSX Optimus Convoy & Megatron from Dengeki Hobby Magazine. I got it for RM40. Now, this set is selling at eBay for USD95 (approx RM313+)! This WST Optimus figure doesn't come with the trailer. Last year I saw a clear WST Optimus with trailer. So I bought it without first checking the price on eBay, and got suckered into paying RM100 bucks! Recently, while hunting for a G2 Optimus (in my effort to collect Optimus Prime of various versions), I came across a set of WST G2 Clear Black Optimus and Yellow Clear Ultra Magnus with Tiger Tracks. I got all 3 for only RM100, imported from HongKong. It arrived yesterday and I m very pleased with this purchase. The Clear Black G2 prime - it comes with cab, roller, gun, 2 big missile launcher and the black box with autobot logo on the trailer front. It has a Decepticon logo - so is this Nemesis Prime? I got to know from the net that these WST Transformers are custom made (means not licensed) but the quality and details of these figures are amazing and as good as the original.The Clear Yellow Ultra Magnus - it comes with trailer, 2 missile launchers, 2 guns, 2 fists, head/helmet, sticker sheet and the cab. What's cool about this is that the trailer transform into a larger robot. Tiger Tracks can fit into Ultra Magnus' trailer. Very nice! These figures doesn't comes with instruction. Transformation for the cab is easy. For the trailer I checked out Youtube for the transformation tips - found out that it's simply amazing! Even though this figure is so small, the details and engineering behind the transformation is simply amazing! Highly recommended for collectors of Transformers. Price is still very reasonable at eBay (as of now) and play value is 10/10!

I discovered there's another G2 Optimus Prime (besides the G2 Laser Prime and Hero Prime). I bought one from eBay USA. This version is dated 1992. It comes with black trailer, have shooting missiles and an electronic light and voice box with Autobot logo. Basically the Prime figure is the same as G1. The addition is the shooting missiles feature and the electronic voice box. It also comes with Roller and the rest of the accessories that comes with the G1 Prime. Quite rare and pricey these days.
