    So, basically, just say who you Troopbuild, or who you think would make a good troop, and why.

    I obviously think Vehicon is a good one, and Hot Shot also fits a troopbuilder with his goggles down. I may get 2 more of him, and only let one ever reveal his face and call him the "Commander"/the real Hot Shot.

    Bumblebee. Because it's easy to troopbuild with him.

    Ultra Magnus.

    [​IMG]

    One Magnus may not be able to deal with that now, but a flock can deal with ANYTHING. One I slightly repainted so his face isn't so bland and stuck him in the City Commander armor. The rest are his foot soldiers and bring him coffee.

    For me, it's gonna be PRID Vehicon and Jet Vehicon. I also might get three FOC Kickbacks and use them all as generic insecticons.

    I got 3 PRID Soundwaves as my Jet Vehicon replacements for my Classics display, just in case Hasbro plans to not release them here in the US.

    Also got Scourge with 2 sweeps, and one Vehicon at the moment, but plan on buying two more. seekerblackout also brought up a good idea with FOC Kick-back... But my wallet is gonna make me fry...

    Universe/Classics 2.0 Acid Storm. At one point as a result of $7 deluxes at Wal-Mart and lack of other things to purchase, I had around 10 of him. Currently, I'm down to three on display and several others sitting in a pile of things to sell.

    It's...beautiful. I would love to try that.

    I don't troop build any TFs at the moment, but I'm thinking about having a small squad of Vehicons. I do have a Snowtrooper squad though.

    Probably Optimus Prime for me, but not really by choice. I just happen to have 5 of him. All different mind you, but still Prime. :)

    I don't do troop building. I've just never had the interest in it.

    I mean, there is my army of Ironhide figures, but they're all pretty different. :cool:  I have character focus collections, but I don't consider that troop building.

    I've never really had a reason to troop build Transformers except for the last two years. I have 2 Junkheaps from Generations, and 2 RTS Wreck Gars, one of them I made a custom head for. I've got a Scourge and 3 Sweeps, and I intend to get 6 Vehicons and 2 jet Vehicons.

    The PRiD Vehicons will be my first foray into troop building. Though if they'd do a generic purple and red repaint of the Classics Seeker mould I'd troop build that too.

    I also think I'm going to troop build the Generations FoC Insecticons. They look Vehicon-like in the head, so I'll pick up a few of those to stand in as just another variation of Vehicon.

    I'm going to try and use the PRID vehicons for troop-builders. I'm going for Eight CV and Eight Deluxes should I find the funds.

    I think the most I've ever had of a mold was two Armada Demolishors (Armada and cybertron), two Tankors and two Obsidians (normal versions and universe two-pack), and two of three of the four build team members (Everyone minus wedge)
