    I don't meant if you buy 2 to keep one MISB, but buy another one of the same Transformer because you like the first one very much. I bought another Night Slash Cheetor because I was so fascinated with the one I got and after finishing ep 20 of Cybertron I may do the same with Sideways. It's a terrific character with a excellent TF design. How about you?

    I meant to put this thread in TF General or Toyark. Can a mod move this for me? Thanks.

    The only TF I have ever bought twice was Depth Charge and that was because he broke. But to his credit, I had a few break before that never replaced one, but Depth Charge was so damn cool that I had to rebuy him. I ended up even happier with the second Depth Charge because I now had two shark guns like he did in the show.

    Not the same figure unless I wanted to repaint one, but on molds I really like I'll buy almost every repaint that comes out. Like the BM deluxe Jetstorm mold for example. I have bought two once when I finally found one here about a week before I recieved one I finally ordered online. I did that with RID Storm Jet. Of course the second one did end up getting repainted, but I waited a wile to do it. Actually it stayed MISB for about two years, and that the only figure I did that with.

    I don't really see a point in getting a second of the same character. If I like the mold, I'll get repaints. The only time I'll buy two of the same figure, is if I'm going to modify one.

    • 3 x Metroplex (G1)
    • 3 x Computron (G1)
    • 4 x Optimus Prime (G1)
    • 10 x Rodimus Prime
    ...to name a few. But then again I might not qualify because I'm 'that guy' who buys (bought) 20 of the same figure because it was "cool for the price". ...And I have a multiples issue.

    I know what you mean. I bought another E Starscream. It was on clearance, but I wouldn't have bought it if I didn't like the figure very much. Sideways would be nice, too.

    I don't see the point. If I like the toy, I'll get repaints, but I don't see the point of getting multiples of the exact same toy to open.

    I've got 3 G1 primes. and two G1 jetfires. I have good versions of both, and if I ever find them in thrift shops, I pick them up. I got my second jetfire for $35, missing only his back armor and gun, and it was the macross logo version!!!

    I just bought two extra Energon Sharkticons just because I think he's one of the best Transformers to play with.

    Nice! How do you managed to get 3 Computrons? I think I can add the following as well:

    3 x Predaking
    4 x Blitzwing (one ehobby)
    3 x Grimlock (one being G2)

    I hope to get a few Hot Rods. Targetmaster and Black will be my next conquest. :)

    Thats just silly...I have no room for new TFs as it is (although that doesnt stop me from getting new stuff).

    That being said, i DO have 3 Topspins. Dont ask.

    I've got 8 Cruellocks, 1 Magma Cruellock, and 1 Doomlock. Why ? Cause I wanted tons of those Energon swords he comes with, plus I like lizard-alt modes. Don't ask how many Wrecklose's I plan on buying..

    I have 2 Arcees, cause one was on clearence and wanted to paint it black. Also bought 2 of the Energon Prime / Megatron 2 packs, so I could powerlink one of the Primes and had TFMaster make Mini-Tron into Galvatron.

    I bought two of the green crane combiners and two of the green bulldozer combiners from Energon to make Devastator a bit more uniform in color.
