I was like that with the enemy troopers I ended up with forty of them , and do I regret it? Nope I just got lucky they stop making it.

wow, theres a bunch of bat-aholics here.... but im the same way, he was my favorite back then, and is now...ive passed up on 13 this week (yes, ive kept track) but couldnt help it today.. and now i have another piece of perfection just staring at me...
suprisingly, there has been a bazooka trooper at my local target all week, nobody like him?

i must admit, i buy every bat i see just becuase he was one of my favorites. i stopped with the troopers due to shee numbers i already have. i really fought hard to slow down with vipers and have actually turned down snow serpents. i don't need any more bazooka troopers so i'll pass on those unless i know i can trade them but bats and crimson guards i just can't resist. another reason i'm not buying vipers anymore is i'm waiting for the new 5 pack viper! i will be looking to trade for many of those
the good part i guess is that none of these are really widely available in my area so it's not like i'm buying them all the time. i'm lucky to pick up 1-2 figures a week.

I do the same thing with Eels, Crimson Guards, Snow Serpents, Vipers and the occasional BAT that I DO find.
I noticed, though, that the Para Vipers are starting to make me do the same thing. I'm an army building nut... what can I say?

Heres how I see army building: I play with my joes. I have long drawn out scenarios with many funny voices and stuff.
But, I can't play with more than 5-7 army builders at a time. So I stop there. I do have 10 royal guards and 10 astro vipers though. I think its time to set more limits and have more individuals.

I passed up 3 B.A.T.s the other night... With so many troop-builders in this line, and more on the way, I have to limit myself to a squad of 5 or less... The only (not counting repaints like the Viper/F.A.N.G. figures or Python-Patrol) troop-builder I've passed on buying multiples of is the Tele-Viper... I think he looks cheap/bad, and I don't like that he's in a multi-pack with Breaker or the R.A.M. Cycle.
I recently painted all my Troopers to match, so I have about 12-13 of them, and unless I can find the Wave 12 Trooper (whose facemask I'll paint black) I don't want any more regular Troopers.
Even limiting myself to 5 of the troop-builders that I collect, there are a few like the B.A.T. that I have a few carded that I am debating to open or return to the store, the rest I've opened all that I bought to open. But I had to stop.
Seriously, how ridiculous is army-building? I had to sit back the other day, take stock of the size of the 25th line that I have, and if I had 20-100 of EACH troop like some folks on here, do you realize how excessive and wasteful that is? I feel weird having 5 of each, but I attribute that to a childhood lack of multiples (had a lot of troopers, but they were all 1 of each Viper-division, etc.).
But what do grown men need with thousands upon thousands of GI Joes? That's insane, even though I'm part of the insanity, I just can't bring myself to that.
So I turn down B.A.T.s when I see them, and leave them for others. Come on guys, stop with the ridiculous army building.

I've bought eight BATs in the last week. Passed up another Best of DVD kit though.
