Started humming the JAWS theme when I saw this!
I have a Prime First Edition Vehicon, a Prime Vehicon, an Arms Micron Vehicon, and two Arms Micron Jet Vehicons.
I don't think I'm going to do any more army building any time soon, as it is I almost regret getting the extra Vehicons since I don't really bother messing with all of them these days.
i have 6 insecticons (2 of each), 4 sweeps, and 3 sharkticons.
I have three Gnaws and an extra TR Scourge to go with my Legends Scourge as sweeps.
I'm not sure how many more Troops I'll get. I'm think a total of 3 "Sweeps" + Scourge and 5-6 Sharkticons.
I have avoided Troop building with insecticons because Ihome hoping for a color-coordiated multi-pack down the line.
To preface, I only ever troop-build if a figure has either reached saturation or is readily available online.
6 Gnaws (I saw at least 12 more, but passed)
22 PRiD Legion Vehicons
13 PRiD Legion Jet Vehicons
-I had more of both, but used some for customs
12x of each of the Legion Abominus components, not including the repaints.
6 PRiD deluxe Vehicons. When they hit Five Below, I had fun.
I just bought 2 packs of UT Sharkies.
I don't have any yet but I am planning to get more Sharkticons, particularly if there's a Legends repaint in more cartoon accurate colours.
Also I keep meaning to get a Legends Scourge so my Titans Return Scourge can become a "Sweep".
I have 4 titans Return Scourge led by the Geberations Scourge.
The extent of my army building is 2 x PRID Vehicons–survivors of my Prime collection's purge–now serving as Lockdown's Titan Hunter crew in my IDW collection, and 2 x TR Gnaws/Sharkticons, I'll be adding a third and final Sharky whenever I find one out in the wild.
Nice! I really wish I'd snagged a Jet Vehicon and Jet Vehicon General when I had the chance.
I used to be heavily into G.I. Joe and all the army building that implies. *shudder* Never again.
That said, I have 4 Gnaws: 1 to rep Gnaw, 3 to rep Sharkticons. And I have too many Junkions - 14 or 15 here, so at least half a dozen more not pictured:
4 Gnaws - because it is almost required, right?
4 TR Blurrs and 4 TR Brainstorms - Love this mould. With several parts being just interchangeable, I use the figures that end up with the wings as an Autobot air unit, the wingless as a land unit. (Side note - I'd like to pick up multiples of the upcoming Nautica from the Chaos on Velocitron box set, but I don't imagine that I'll find those at a decent enough price. I paid about $10 each for the Blurrs and Brainstorms.)
10 of each - TR Crash Bash, Clobber, and Overboard - I love this tiny little T-Rex design. Plus, found sales that allowed me to get them all for under $4 each overall.
Most of the limbs for my Combiner Wars gestalts I picked up in groups of four for symmetry. Thinking of them as "teams," I guess that might be considered troop building.
I'm still considering picking up a couple of Scourges to be sweeps. I've customized the one I currently have enough that I think I could leave two "lieutenants" alone to just stand behind him and look menacing.
Aside from those, I don't usually pick up multiples of the same figure/same paint. If I do, it is usually with the idea of customizing, which I don't usually think of as troop building.
I managed to find 4 Gnaw in stores. Just looking for one more so I can have a guy stand in the middle of the pack.
Only time I ever bought two of the exact same figure twice for the purposes of army building was Generations Junkheap, specifically because the mold allows a duplicate to ride the bike.
As it so happened, one of the Junkheaps tends to hold together in bike mode better and the other has a more reliable robot mode, so that made picking which one to display in which form fairly trivial.
Otherwise, I don't bother troop building. Shit's expensive enough as it is.
The only figure that I bought more than 1 of is TFP deluxe Vehicon.
I have 2 Titan Metroplexes and 2 Cybertron Metroplexes and intend to get more of the Cybertron one if I see them cheap
maybe add in a HFTD Chopsaw?? He sports junkion colors and turns into a sweet little bike.
goes amazingly well with your profile gif
Oh my, no. People, where are the pics? You can't have a thread about army building without pics!!!
Yea, I army build.
I also have about 7 legends class TFP insecticons. But I can't find the pics anywhere...
I have Legends Scourge, United Scourge and Generations Scourge and two Gnaws. Maybe I'll get more when Takara announces him.
Don't know if they count, I have two legion vehicons. But one is the car and the other a jet.
I have 3 RotF Skystalker and looking for more!
