    It probably won't be nearly as many unless I find super bargains like I did on Brunt.
    They could all be the same or I could mix a few of the following candidates:
    Cog - I didn't decide I wanted to get Weaponizers until after he left stores, so I'd be starting at zero here.
    Six-Gun - I have 3...well, 2 and Sideswipe's jet pack...
    Crosshairs - probably has the best look for it, but I don't have any yet.
    Ironworks - I might want several of these anyway.

    I think a mix of Iron Works and Sixguns could be neat from a head canon lore standpoint.

    the Iron Works could be construction drones reprogrammed for fighting in the early stages of the war while the sixguns are a more recent, combat from the start drone model perhaps reverse engineered from decepticon tech to explain the flying alt mode when Autobots lean towards ground vehicles.

    I say Ratchet with Crosshairs' head is pretty passable 20200106_183609.jpg

    Well maybe someone can make a head on shapeways or something that way you're not spending $40+ on one trooper

    The smart aleck response is to amass an army of Clearance Rack Chromias.

    I'll stick with that.

    I'd say get duplicates of Siege Cog. He looks enough like a drone to me to be a generic trooper, IMHO.

    I use discounted PotP Jazz for that purpose. I was going to use Tailgate, but Jazz turned out to be cheaper. I painted all their helmets white to set them apart from Jazz.

    On the subject of older figures (probably not wholly relevant to the topic at hand), back in the day, I bought a trio of clearance-priced RotF Fallbacks to serve this purpose.

    To add onto this, iirc Scattorshot is pretty cheap and could work as a commander style unit while also letting you have a horde of generic combiners to go up against the legions of Burt-powered cons.
