    Mainly with the BM Jetstorm figure. I wanted a Vehicon air force at the time and got about three extras.

    Altough I might pick up more HFTD Terradive figures. I'm using Terradive as a modern jet Vehicon general. I might add new jet drones to my Vehicon update project.

    I have 5 Botcon Sweeps (+ scourge), they will be replaced by the new Scourge mold though. I'm thinking Scourge+7Sweeps.

    I'm going to hopefully get all the versions of Wreck-gar and might buy a few extras there as well.

    Classic seekers, multipel version of most of them, two acidstorms and I have a few KO-seekers to bulk out their numbers even more.

    I would have armybuilt Botcon Sharkticons if I thought that mold looked like a sharkticon. I have one and am using him as Overbite instead.

    Will probably buy three of the upcoming Reflector retool of Perceptor.

    I don't know if this count but I have Universe2.0 and Henkei Cyclonus as Armada-dudes and the BIS-Cyclonus as the actual Cyclonus.

    I don't believe in doing it as it can get expensive.

    I have a few botcon sharks and a few sweeps. Most recently, I've compiled a little group of Cyclonus' (from the BIS set) to use as the armada.

    MOTU Classics Eternian Palace Guards, though.......now there's a toy to army build with (soooo many weapons, heads, armors, etc to mix and match).

    Does getting every seeker repaint count as troop building? That's the closest I've come though I would like to someday build an army of G1 Sharkticons.

    I don't believe so. Each seeker has their own name and personality. Troop building would be like multiple Acid Storms or something to use as background characters for an entire squadron of jets. But you'd always have those main guys up front.

    I don't. Repaint maybe (but I wouldn't count on it), but not a new head.
