5 is my max unless I'm customizing individuals like I did with the Eels and will soon do with the alley vipers.
Vipers have really useful parts, the parts can be reused again and again for customs. So I have 8 vipers and 8 paratroopers. Oddly, I just wanted the extra for the masked heads.
I also have about 6 assorted Cobra troopers, 6 resolute, 3 mechanic, etc. Oddly, today I passed up on a wave 12 trooper because I have too many..

1 of each. I started out opening all my cobra and setting up; then decided to buy joes and left them on the cards..for now. I'm working on a stop-motion project with cobra commander and destro, will have to share it when finished. I'd love to do as many stop motions as humanly possible. and to save money, will composite any extra cobra army for now.

I don't army build, and until wave 6, I only bought one of each fig. I'm a MOC collector after 1990 (before is to prohibitively expensive).

I army build Vipers, cobra troopers(black mask/red sig and black mask/silver sig only), CG's and BATS. All the rest I have no more than 4. Most I only have 1 or 2.

Then think about Characters... I mean would one Batman figure really be enough for anyone? And if so which ONE Batman figure would you choose? There are just so damn many.
So to answer your question. One figure is rarely enough, unless like I said it is for your MOC collection.

I'm an army builder. I used to be golden age; but the new figures come complete and don't go through rubber bands wholesale! So now I'm mostly 25th! I have a cobra army somewhere around 150 made mostly of Blue shirts and crimson guards.
As a kid, If you asked me "how many troops is enough?"
I would always say, "just one more".
22 Crimson Guards
11 BATS (not sure how many I want)
2 Eels (I want about 4-6)
2 Cobra Divers (I want about 4-6)
8 Bazooka Troopers
9 Cobra Officers
8 Snow Serpents (they're elite, so why have too many)
9 Vipers including Air Vipers
44 Blue Shirts of all kinds
7 HISS drivers (not sure how many I want)
As for Joes I get multiples if only if I want to custoimize them. I have Duke, Flint, Lady Jaye, and a few others that I've made in winter gear...
As for MOC I only buy main characters like Duke, Cobra Commander etc. I don't want multiples of MOC figures, because I keep them for posterity. I can't afford to buy the originals MOC, so the 25th will due.

2 many of one figure is anything over 100??? But I have 130 cobra soldiers (silver logo) so I will now kick my own ass... anyway I will one day have 100 of each figure yes it would break down like this...
100 Cobra soldiers
100 snow serpents
100 eels (I donít know how I will get these)
100 Para vipers
100 red ninjas
100 bazooka troopers
But I will need a second Job, and lots of blood to give to get this before I am 50...
