I have all of them through W10 (and doubles of most of those). I drew the line and did not buy Matt Trakker for W11 and plan to pass on W12. W13 had 4 I wanted and I have bought 1 of each of those. I plan to buy extras of those 4 if/when I find them.
So, I would say: yes I bought Joe figs that I did not want in an effort to be a completist but have stopped that as of W11.
I have never been a completist on vehicles or comic packs - only buying the ones I want. That has helped the wallet.
I have saved $100 by not buying the DVD packs.

I have bought everything up to this point W11. Have yet to see the other two waves but the crappiness of all the repaints and the artwork for the Resolute figs is about to change that.
I also have skipped on the DVD packs and comic packs but do have all of the vehicles and multiples of them. I feel a completist when it comes to singles and with army building it can get out of hand.
Anything but to face ourselves as we are...

Only get the ones I want.
Torch, Ripper, CG Python Patrol are all big ol' no's.
Urban Assault Roadblock is a no.
I make up 3 "lists" when a new wave comes out:
The "maybes" only after I bought all the definates that I want and if have some extra money and see 'em sitting on the pegs.

I don't buy any figures I don't specifically want unless one of the following has happened:
1. I bought an inferior early release if a figure before having knowledge of an improved version on the way, i.e. version 1 Flint.
2. I needed to by a comic pack to get the figure I really wanted. I don't mind so much paying a couple extra bucks to get figs like Scrap Iron.
3. I bought larger packs to get one or a couple figures I want. I usually try to get them at a discount and try to trade/sell of the remaining figures. That's really the only sure way to get a good cartoon Lady Jaye, Dusty, Alpine, Quick Kick and the like. By the time you try to buy them on ebay or the like and have them shipped, you might as well just buy the pack, especially if you can get it discounted or with free shipping.
Anyway, I don't buy figs or vehicles I don't want and at some point I'm going to sell off all the misfits and extras or just give them to my kids. Those figs will never really be a part of my collection.

Absolutely not. I only buy what I like/want.... but I actually like Croc Master... though mostly the Resolute line is not appealing to me.

No, I don't.
Spirit, Wild Bill, Ninja Ku Stormshadow are the ones off the top of my head that every time I see them I am think nope, not going to buy them.
The resolute line didn't appeal to me till I saw the Resolute "Now you know" trailer, then I ordered 2 of each figure.

I wanted to get all the carded figs just to have the cardbacks, but I stopped this at W12. I can't bring myself to pick up Ripper, Torch and W13 Firefly. If carded Tripwire didn't have the desert element I would've skipped him too.
With that being said, I don't mind picking up repaints of certain figs if they are cooler looking, like CP Firefly.
