    I have Takara Scourge and two of Hasbro's TR Scourge which I repurposed as the Sweeps. I may get a third Sweep when I see one cheap enough.

    I also plan to buy three or four Gnaws.

    4 Universe Acid Storms, 3 TR Scourges, and 4 TR Gnaws.

    Acid Storm is my generic seeker, (don't know how I ended up with 4, I wanted 3) 2 Scourges are my sweeps, and Gnaw because why not?

    I never had the urge to troop build TFs until this year. I've got 2 TR Scourges and 2 TR Gnaws and plan to get a third each. I also picked up the Planet of Junk Clash boxset, so now I've got four Junkions (to go along with RtS Wreck-Gar and Generations Junkheap) and the itch to get more. I might even get more Prime Vehicons.

    I don't army build, and even I *would* have bought four had Hasbro or Takara didn't come up with a Deluxe CW Scourge to go with Cyclonus/Galvatronus.

    The army builders alone would've justified this even as an online exclusive. And it's not like they didn't have Takara Blast-Off to work from.

    Since there was a good sale that was actually backed up with stock and I was sent on a lot of errands over the holidays I ended up with six TR Sweeps. I haven't opened three of them yet. I like the display I ended up with (there is a third in robot mode with Galvatron and Cyclonus now).

    A display like this in MP scale would require different furniture, that's not happening. :) 

    Of the more recent ones I like Gnaw but I haven't seen any on sale. The fact that wave 3 has two possible army builders and wave 4 just has more Bumblebees makes me nausious.

    Up to 3 Gnaws, debating going up to 6 if they start hitting saturation.

    I haven't done this but I've seen people use Cybertron Swerve as their Classics Autotroopers.

    The only figure I've bothered trying to troop build is Titans return Gnaw. Thought about it with Scourge but didn't pull the trigger.

    Transformers Prime: I have 4 or 5 "regular" Hasbro Vehicons, plus 1 Jet and 1 General Vehicon. Oh and a handful of Legion Vehicons too.

    For Generations: I have 2 Wreck-Gars and 2 Junkions.

    For TR: I have 3 Gnaw, and am stopping at that. Was tempted to do Scourge army, but missed Takara and not keen to spend that much right now. Just have 1 Hasbro for the time being.

    Not technically a troop-builder, but I collect Beast Hunters Abominus components and their redecoes. Whenever I see one for a couple bucks, yoink. My head canon is that they're the army of baby dragons Shockwave was growing.

    I had the virulent clones and friends, but I sold all of my Botcon '05 stuff a while back. The only troop builders I have multiples of are the Energon Terrorcons and their repaints, though I do hope to eventually pick a proper set of sweeps.

    3 of a kind is always my number, but made a little exception with gnaw and scourge. Takara scourge for...well, scourge and the Hasbro ones for sweeps. 4 gnaws, but one with an autobot sticker. Why you may ask? Dreamwave comics. Wheelie has to have his little buddy! :)
