I pass on about 80% of stuff.
I pretty much only collect Cobra, and the odd Joe. Usually it's only if I had a strong connection to the character when i was a kid.
so not a whole lot of Joes, NO NINJA's. and no python patrol.
My collection would have been fine without a single Storm Shadow, but I needed a firefly so went with the comic pack.
figured having on SS wouldn't hurt.
Rhino DVD sets, boglins, joes transformers and Resident evil all in my most randomest bst thread on the tank.

I buy what I like. I pass on bogus repaints like the upcoming Torch, PP, TF, etc. and the same figures repacked with an extra accessory. I already have several Cobra Commanders and Tripwire, I didn't buy the re-do's with the element containers. That was not an incentive enough to re-buy these figures.
If it is a troop that is different enough, I can warrant it, but Storm Shadow version 50 I can live without.

I'm not a completist for any line of figures I collect. Many of these newer figures in this line are saving me money because I have no need for them. I only bought Blowtorch from wave 13, passing on all the resolute stuff, and I'll only buy the 2 figures that have the elements from wave 12 (if I ever find them). I've skipped plenty of figures previously because I don't need extra CCs and Dukes.
I prefer to just buy the definitive version of each unique character, but sometimes I have to get more than one when the later version is better than the earlier one. This is not the case with Torch. I put off buying the CC/Tripwire pack, so now I don't need it since I will just get Tripwire from wave 12 when I find it.
I don't care about what kind of packaging the figures come in since I open them so I am able to avoid buying a figure just because they are re-released single carded. I do save the file cards so I kinda prefer DVD & comic packs because they don't need to be cut out.

Nope. I buy what I had before I lost my collection. And a few that I always wanted that I could never have. Any only Joes' and the Noks' at that. No Cobras.
However, I will be collecting the Resolute line, Cobra's included.
