    Hey all,

    How many of you have duplicates of the same figure, for whatever reasons it may be? mosc v loose, robot v alt mode..etc

    edit: should also state that I'm trying to decided whether or not I'm gonna sell my duplicates, most of which are Universe..to which I think may sway the response :)

    I've got 14 versions of the Energon Sharkticon mold. 10 of the original, the three Botcon ones, and Sky-Byte.

    I'm a Sharkticon fanatic, what can I say. :D

    So far:

    - 2x Cyclonus (Universe 2.0 and Reveal the Shield)
    - 2x Hubcap (I'm thinking about repainting him yellow as a nod to his G1 counterpart.)

    I usually try to get one loose and one mint on card. Sometimes I can't though...but I don't know how many duplicates I have. I've lost count.

    Me too, one for me, one for the boy, and one for the future. I buy in trips and quads really but only things I must have.

    2 ROTF Brawns and 2 NEST Ratchets, only because they were an absolute bargain.

    12+ seeker mold if we are counting on that....
    9+ wreckgar
    3+ of Cyclonus and Scourge each


    Think most people that owns duplicates falls into one of two catagories:

    1. People that army builds with that mold
    2. People who buys one for MISB, one/two for display in various modes, and maybe one for play.

    I only buy duplicates if I can afford them... and also if i really dig the figure and wish to have one MISB, or MOSC. But i honestly don't see myself selling any of my figures so i've pretty much stopped buying duplicates.. Up to you man. If you need the money.. then go on and sell the ones you don't really need. if not.. hold on to em.

    I'll also add one other category:

    3. People who buy both Takara & Hasbro versions of figures.

    If that counts, that's how my Classics collection has been (unless there were negligible differences, e.g. Octane/Tankor), except that I've recently been selling off my duplicates (depending on which version I prefer keeping) to help pay for the mortgage.
