I haven't seen multiples of the rare figures lately, so I just get it for myself. In those cases where I find something I already have enough of (like a PIT Commando, for example) I just leave it for the next person.

If the parts on them are good they belong to me. The only unopened joe I own his the 25th foil SE with the black timber and I almost opened him last night cause I need that belt :P He has made it this long though!

How about: Pick them all up, debate on buying the other ones to sell on Ebay for $$$, start feeling guilty as you walk to the register, get out of line to put the extras back, buy the one you need, go to the car feeling all slimey because you were almost a scalper. The joy of your find is gone forever.

Assuming I already have a copy of the hard to find figure, I leave it. Why make it harder to find by creating a bigger shortage when I don't need it?
If it is an army builder, I build in doses. No need to buy all the stock for myself.
