    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 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 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".

    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:

    I have:

    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.

    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.
