it really does get costly doesn't it ! i try to keep one moc and at least one loose of everything besides my troop builders. usually i'll buy unique characters specific for the shelf or the custom, and i'll start using up troop builders until their ranks have been depleted. that is where the bigger spending comes in :p

I figure it's all fair game.
I've even gone back and hacked up some customs
I've done before to use for new customs.

Every time I start a project, I tear out all the loose figures I have to see if I can get the desired effect accomplished. I go as far as I can with that. If I hit a roadblock (no pun intended) I then will resort to opening MOC items or trading. With that being said, I stocked up on ROC duplicates for 2.50 a piece when they were on sale prior to Xmas to accomodate future needs.

The only way I'll use one from my collection is if I've already ordered a replacement. Even when I butchered an episode one figure to make my Cesspool I ordered a new moc Chancelor Valorum to replace the one I destroyed.

I only display and collect a few figures overall, and I make my customs to put on my shelf, not that I'm that good at it, but I really wanted a Lowlight, Crazylegs, and a real Ripcord. But I have broken into some figures that I bought only for display or to keep MOC for the purpose of making customs. And I have cannibalized some customs for other customs, especially those that I wasn't too thrilled with overall.

I'll always buy new figures for customs unless it's a duplicate. If I've got a few of a figure in the toy bin I'll carve it up no problem, but if it's the only one I've got then it's off limits until I have a replacement.

I've done both, grabbing from my display and buying. I specifically bought hall of heroes storm shadow to make my resolute version of him. From my display I took torch from the comic two pack to turn him into resolute snake eyes, but I replaced him with the single carded version. I also have a few figures for fodder.

figures I already have and try to see what could go where to make what and who.
Than I'll seek out a loose version for parts.
