    how many of each figure do you normally buy? Personally, I try to buy two of each of the Deluxe and Voyager figures. That way I can display one in 'bot mode and one in alt mode.

    If I find a figure I really like, I'll but a third one to either keep MISB or to fiddle around with.

    If I have a Leader class figure (or bigger) I'll only buy one because they're just too big and clunky to keep muliples of.

    So how many of each figure do you normally buy? Does size-class affect how many you end up getting of each figure?

    THANKS for posting!!

    I was just wondering if buying two of each figure is a popular practice for a TF collector.......I'm starting to think that I'm in the minority!!

    This is a sensitive subject.
    Before the recession I used to buy two of each. One I would open and put on display and the other one was kept in storage as a MISB item.

    Now I don't buy anything. Money is tight and I even had to sell some of my items on ebay. Add to that the fact that I don't work right now.

    I used to buy two, one to play with and one for MISB but now I only buy one of each and I allow myself to open up one box a week.

    Just one, my TF's are displayed so I usually transform them once, put them in a pose in my case and leave them. Ive got a few laying around that I play with, but those are my junkers, their all scratched up and dont get a spot in the case. I got two kids to support and with the crappy economy and can't afford more than one.

    I usually stick to one.
    If I really like a certain one, I will buy a second for my desk at work.
    And if I really, really like one I end up buying three or four to give to my sons or to mess around with.
    I seem to have a wierd problem when it comres to a certain few.
    Example. For some reason I can't explain, I have five TFA Voyager Primes and five of the Sunstreaker/Sideswipe mold. I have repainted some of the later though.

    This is pretty much what I do too, just substitute the case for a shelf.

    Only multiples I have are Bluestreak and Cyclonus for bashing and a couple of Uni. Starscreams that are going to be displayed separately (I have Classics Starscream on the shelf).

    You need a new option - one loose and one to keep MISB.

    That would count as option two because technically the one MISB is staying in alt mode.

    Just one for most. I'll buy more than one for a few characters, but it's rare. Molds are a different story. If it's the same character with a new paint job, then it's extremely rare. If each redeco is meant as a new character (i.e. seekers), then I'll get one of each deco.

    If it something I see as customs fodder, I buy a lot. Right now I have 5 Ironhides, 6 or more Acid Storms, 3 Sideswipes, 3 Silverstreaks, and 3 Starscreams, but I want a couple more.

    No choices really work, 1 of each Hasbro, but Tak/Tom is hit or miss.
