  1. It was definitely a market for more Junkion upgrades...I'd have...and...still would buy torso replacements, weapons packs & new heads for my Junkion clan...have those LR kits just never applied/assigned them...CW Wreck-Gar needs a Junkion inspired weapons set...

    1) Prime Vehicons at Legends scale. To this day it's nice to see them trying to storm Fortress Maximus.

    2) Titan Master Scourge/Sweeps. I've got one Takara and six Hasbro. They're my little Transformers K-Pop boy band.

    3) Sharkticons when they come out.

    The only troopbuilding I've done was with the Kreon Vehicons, and even then they're all unique from each other (3 are customs based on the Prime game's Vehicons: helicopter, tank, and truck):

    I kinda always wanted to add another trio, but the 6 all have their own style of clear purple gun (save the "tank" who just has a plain opaque black cannon). The OCD in me would go nuts trying to continue the trend.

    I don't troop build much myself, usually only three or so if I do, but even if I don't own all the ones in question ill still list...

    Chug junkions
    Tr sweeps
    Cw viper (to me he is)
    Cybertron scrapmetals
    Prime vehicons (car and jet)

    I also mentioned this in another thread but I think this could be a good place to mention as well...

    Im kicking around the idea of getting a few tr getaways and using titan master heads to swap around and make him generic autotroopers. He doesn't feel like getaway to me but I feel the body is just basic and generic enough he could fill that gap...add in the customization of swappable titan master heads and you have a few options. What do you guys think?

    I don't actually have the ability to troop build all the ones I'd want to, but if I did:

    1 - G1 Scourges
    2 - Takara Transformers Legends Scourges
    3 - Any Titans Return/Legends Fort Max as I'd love a gigantic sprawling city in the fictitious man cave in the fictitious home I own
    4 - MP-11s painted up to be the generic seekers in the background of More Than Meets The Eye
    5 - Car Robots/RID JRX (RailRacer) - because one can never own enough bullet trains. Now will a 3rd party PLEASE do all the generic carriages for those trains please?!

    All the best

    I have like 6-7 prime vehicles and about 4 prime Insecticons. They make for a nice display with my massive zaku collection.

    1. Prime Legends Vehicon: They are good, they are cheap. I bought two dozen of those;
    2. TFA Autotroopers: They are very impressive and looks really good at my Animated shelves. I need more of them;
    3. Prime Deluxe Vehicon: This mold is one of the few Prime Decepticons that I have. The engineering is very clever and Shockwave wanted some troops to guard his lab;
    4. Titans Return Legends Gnaw: Probably I will buy many of those, but need to wait and see the toys;
    5. Kiss Players Autotroopers: I have only one. They are expensive to troop build, but would be awesome to have more of these.
    I voted in 2-5, my thought is to have at least three of each troop builder toy. Some I have more (TFA Autotroopers, Prime Legends Vehicons) and some I have fewer (Kiss Players Autotroopers), but the idea is to always buy three of each.

    Titans Return are really accommodating the troop building fans with Scourge, Gnaw and Kickback.

    Never could really afford to "Troop Build" myself. Closest I came to troop building was Prime Vehicon by buying all the different variations and repaints from Hasbro and Takara both. But even though I don't, these are my best recommendations for troop builders:

    • Generations Scourge (not the TR version)
    • TR Sharkticon Gnaw
    • CW Viper
    • Prime Vehicons (Legends and deluxes)
    • Energon Terrorcons like Cruellock and Divebomb

  15. So...Femmes & Mechs...how many of the Titan Returns Gnaw/Sharkticons will you be purchasing for your CHUG collections...???...I'm at three once the latest is delivered...thinking MAYBE two more Hasbro variants...fir generics...then hold out for a TT variant to represent Gnaw himself...

    I've never been a TF troopbuilder before, but I would like to get a couple more Vipers and hope to find a few Sharkticons. Don't think I'd ever buy more than five of a particular Transformer figure. However, I will troopbuild more for other collections with more than a dozen of some Cobra troops.
