    I only have so much display space. This may change if the helmats are removable and you could make Horde armour He-man and others. I'd love to make a "secret of the sword" type display...

    Yes you do, you've just used a double negative!

    I'm supprised to see how many big spenders there are here.

    At most I'd want 4, but will be happy with one or two.

    1-4. A basic two-pack would do me fine.

    I like an example of every release in my collection, but don't have the space, nor finances, to build buge armys!

    I'm thinking I'll get at least six. It all depends on how they come; maybe more if there's cool extra stuff happening!
    Not to sound like a creepy cheerleader for Uki, but it's nice to know there is at least one person on this forum who is extremely positive & friendly all the time. I don't think I could be that nice even if you paid me. If we ever give out awards for "forum member of the month", Uki gets my vote. -Mr. Shokoti

    Probably around 6, I don't want to overdo it.

    I don't get that Mattel hasn't made them yet. This 2-pack could be a cash cow. Maybe they save him for january 2013. To get more subscription. Personally I think this figure will be the highest seller in the whole line.

    I'd say I'd probably pick up between 8-12, so I went with the 9-12 option.

    Definately 3 packs of 2 to match my Royal guards - needed 2 x 2 to display different heads, old Hordak will need his crew of 4 to match. The extra pack is because I am a MIB desperado and alwasy try to keep one.

    I have no other significnat hobby than MOTUC and very happy to save for the subscription hit and try to get extra if non-sub.

    I have 10 Royal Guards, so I want 20 Horde Troopers. Can't wait for them, I know the Horsemen are going to do a great job.

    I got 6 Palace guards so I'd like 6 Troopers.

    I chose the 9-12 option because ideally, I really want a 'platoon' (12) of Horde Troopers!
    But realistically I will most likely have to settle for a 'squad' (6) because of space/money.

    My 'squad' (6) Eternian Palace Guards are good enough and I could do with less Guards if needed, but the Horde Troopers have to be at 6 minimum no matter what.

    I like to build my armies in 3's. A better and a lot more realistic setup would be in 4's, but if I only buy 4, I have one odd looking because I like the look of the triangle/V formation. 1 soldier in the front and 2 in the back on the sides.

    These numbers are not a reality, but it displays great on the shelves for me and it saves space and money on army building.

    I also group them by their official names; 'fire teams' of 3, 'squads' of 6, 'platoons' of 12, a 'company' of 36 and a 'battalion' of 72 (I have yet to reach or desire a battalion because trying to reach a company is already a crazy amount so I should probably scrape battalion off the list ) I usually tend to leave the NCO's and CO's away for a consistent look.

    A realistic army setup (according to Wikipedea);
    • Fireteam: 4 soldiers (1 of the 4 soldiers is an NCO)
    • Squad (2 Fireteams): 8–13 soldiers + 1 Squad leader (Staff Sergeant)
    • Platoon (2-4 Squads): 26–55 soldiers + 1 Platoon leader (Lieutenant, usually assisted by the Platoon Sergeant)
    • Company (3-5 Platoons) 80–225 soldiers + 1 Captain/Major
    • Battalion (2-5 Companies) 300–1,300 soldiers + 1 Lieutenant Colonel/Colonel

    At the rate my collection is growing I'm going to have to add on an addition to my house with a big room just for the collection (not that I could do that lol ). It would be great to have one whole room to dedicate to the collection. I can see it in my head now. A HUGE Glass table in the center of the room decorated to look like Eternian landscape, with all the figures set up on it, forming a huge battle for Grayskull (which I would love to be the Fortress of Power in the custom forums).



    Hey a girl can dream can't she


    But back to the original subject of this thread, I would get as many Troopers as I could, due to the fact I only managed to get one trooper from the original toy line, it always kinda of annoyed me because that was no army!

    I'm getting 3 from the sub (when they do them), but would likely get an extra set if they allowed combined shipping with the sub to display more of them

    It's hard to comment on how many of something I'd buy, when I haven't even seen what it looks like yet.

    But, assuming they are as awesome as the Palace Guards, I'll probably get between 4-5 packs.
