Micromasters vs. WST

Postby zappatton2 » Thu Oct 18, 2012 6:46 am

This is just a question on scale. I've been looking online for direct size comparisons between G1 Micromasters and modern Smallest Transformers to no avail. I've got tons of Micromasters, but no WST, are they roughly similar in size? Thanks!

I don't have any WST's either, but they do appear to be roughly a similar size based on Seibertron's toy galleries, maybe a little bigger depending on the character:

I hope that helps!

Actually, yeah, they are about the same size.
WST seeker jets are probably slightly bigger than comparable Micromaster jets, cars are pretty much same size. I can assure that they scale very well next to each other, although Smallest Transformers are more 'elegant': the joints are much less obvious. They are also more intricate, in the way they copy the transformations of their bigger counterparts. Both those elements make them MUCH more fragile than Micromasters, though.

I'll see if I can get some of my Micromasters AND some of my Smallest Transformers out for some comparison photo's.

Very cool, thanks! I'm on the Fort Max pre-order list, and I thought it would be nice to display the city bot not just with micro-master figures but with some of the big name G1's scaled down to comparable size. I always thought the city-bots displayed with larger figures (that wouldn't realistically fit into a single building at that scale) looked weird, getting some tiny G1's would really work with Fort Max IMO.

OK, so here you are! Sorry about the crappy lighting. You can see it's pretty much as I posted above: Micromaster and Smallest Transformers car alt-modes are dead on scale to each other, while the Smallest Seekers are in a slightly larger scale than most Micromaster airplanes.

Check out the following links for a good idea of how Smallest Transformers look on both Metroplex (with Reprolabels upgrade set)and Trypticon (with Reprolabels upgrade set). A clue: it's absolutely awesome! Both Micromasters and Smallest Transformers were just MADE to fit in with the bases. I too can't wait to see how they'll look on Fortress Maximus!
