    What is the perfect number for Troop Builds

    I was thinking of trying the Troop build thing for the Prime Eradicons I was thinking of getting Ten, But should I limit myself to Five in case Hasbro releases the Flying ones. How Many should I get??

    Well.... 3 is my number generally. 3 CHMS air warriors, 3 sweeps(and one scourge), 3 botcon sharkticons... Exception is junkions which I plan to get 8 to rep all the named bots.

    I would always go for 3. 3 Sweeps for Scourge and Cyclonus' "Armada" also.

    I thought the point of troopbuilding was to have all of the troops. All of them ever made and never stopping.

    For me three is my limit. I think it is small enough not too look crazy and big enough to represent a group.

    The craziest I've gone is 4 Wreckgars and 8 Junkheaps because I am hooked on MJ's upgrade kits...I'm hoping to add the Botcon Insecticon Junkions. :p

    I plan on getting 3 of any Vehicon made (Except the FE because I didn't like its kibble). Seriously. Even if this happened:

    "Jungle Attack Vehicon vs. Urban Racer Bumblebee 2-Pack"? Uhm...I guess I'll be making some customs out of those extra BBs.

    But on a more "'realistic" level, even this is too much:

    I'm opting for 3 Vehicons. When you get to the extent of that guy with 117 versions of the Wreck-Gar mould, then I think you've gone a bit OTT.

    I plan on getting ten Vehicons & 4 Aerialcons (if they ever make them) I just hope wave 4 has 2 repacked Vehicons per case to make it easier to find them.

    I also plan on troop building Hotshots..
    Mostly to circulate what little bit of cases I can to get Vehicons faster.

    With them being total generics 3 seems fine just as with the Sweeps, Autotroopers, Sharkticons & Air Warriors. I only change-up when it comes to Junkions.

    I'm surprised no one has came and told this guy he should only buy one or else he's selfish and not thinking of others yet.

    But anyway, I'm gunning for five. Decent little squad.
