I troop build up to five and quit but I am a ninja kinda guy. I have to have every single loose version and paint scheme...vintage up to modern era....Snake Eyes, Storm Shadow, and Firefly. Gotta have 'em all. I have about 50 total 25th snake eyes and exactly 40 25th Stormys...the custom bug has bitten me.

Its depends on your collection theme. Mine, yes over three hundred Serpentors. That’s because he is my primary Infantry Soldier. In my own little world, his DNA for cloning still exists. Serpentor in numbers supersedes all cobra infantry in being the most elite and powerful.

I collect 99.99% MOC and open 85-95% of those released (save for crap repaints or figures I just don't like)... I try not to open vehicles, so I do trades to acquire the drivers, if possible... Army-building figures packed with vehicles is a tad tougher...
I have the 4 greenshirts for the Joes... I would like more, but their arms bother me WAY too much, but if they fixed them mid-run with updated Duke arms, I'd buy at least 2 more Greenshirt packs.
I'll buy every single black-masked, red-sigiled blue shirt I can find. Those guys kick ass. I OCD-ly painted my 10 or so yellow-geared, red-masked troopers black to match the first 5-pack trooper. (I really want those new carded black-masked, red-sigiled troopers in the troop-builder wave. BEST TROOPER EVER.) Although I won't have anything to do with that silly Python Patrol eyesore.
The rest of the Cobra troops, I keep to 5 or less. I'm thinking B.A.T.s are going to end up with 10+, simply because they're the best 25th troop-builder out there. Vipers are a close second, I would have bought more single-carded ones, but the IG/Viper pack was a good source of a few IGs without unnecessary Destros, and now the TRU 5-pack of Vipers will help me build the Viper ranks some. EELs, Bazooka troopers, Snow Serpents... Any sort of specialty troopers I don't need that many of, although they're really awesome. My Cobra Army is blue-shirts. A giant sea of blue is more imposing flanked by a few specialty divisions than a rainbow army, if you ask me.
All this from a guy who a year ago thought troop building was silly. It still is, but now I'm neck-deep in it. (Okay, 20+ of more than one set IS getting into "problem" zones... Really.)
