hey gang! i was reading ROYAL MARINE'S topic about army building soldiers and i was wondering does anybody try to army build on vehicles so to speak. it does get pretty darn expensive for your average collector but i do try and buy a couple of vehicles from RAH over and over as long as the price isn't to ridiculous. my favorite type of vehicle to build up on is the 83' HISS! i have 12, and i love how they look side by side :)-

I don't army build vehicles simply because they take up too much room.

 

But If I really love a vehicle, I don't mind getting 2 or 3 of them.

 

I have doubles of many vehicles, sometimes 3, 4, or 5 of them. But I don't army build.

Ahh, but the Hiss and the Magot are two of the best ever made. If you want realisict displays then deffinetly. Nothing like a CObra Armor division being escorted by your 2 plattons of VIpers into new teritory.

 

My god, I have to stop before I get two excited

I was planning on buying a couple of some of the smaller JVC vehicles, but the supply has dried up around here. Not a single Assault Quad in town. :( Maybe my fortune will change.

I have 2 HISS IV and Fang III that I got for the figs. I plan to get many venom/coil cycles soon as they come out for the same reason. I also have 2 Hiss #1 and 3 fang #1 and 2 Fang #2 but not on purpose. so to a degree yes but for the most part no.

I would say I do army build vech.

 

I have

 

10 Hiss 1

2 Hiss 2

4 Hiss 3

4 Hiss 4

4 Stinger

 

I got 2 to 4 vech. That also goes for the air and water vech. I would love to get more stinger jeep and some ferret. I plan on getting as many venom as I can find.

I don't army build vehicles mostly because of reasons already mentioned...

 

1: Too Darn expensive

2: Takes up WAY to much room

 

I do get multiples of SOME vehicles...I have like 10 or 12 HISS III's, but that's it, besides the occasional doubles I end up with. I have 2 BUGGs, 2 Hydrofoils, etc...

 

If I had a whole house to store the stuff, and an unlimited budget, I would army buil vehicles in a second! Actually, my life long dream (well, since 1982, anyway...) was to have a whole room devoted to a Cobra display.

 

The Room would be a replica of Cobra Island, with the Terror Drome, Volcano, and scores and scores of Cobra Troopers and vehicles...alas, that will NEVER happen, but it's fun to dream. :)

don't say that man, all you have to do is win the lotto and you'll be good to go! :wink:

 

i've also got 6 stuns that look real cool together

4 havocs

3 cobra stingers (i want more)

4 vamp 1 jeeps

i also like to army build on the smaller vehicles:

3 ferets (i want more)

but my favorite small vehicles to army build are the silver mirage cycle, i have 6. they look so cool parked out in front of the joe headquarters

but i really don't see the point in army building vehicles unless you "play" with your joes like i proudly do or you have alot of space to display them in. if not then what's the point :-?

my dream since i was a kid was to have a fleet of swamp skiers for my dreadnoks like on the cartoon. so they would look like a motorcycle gang when rolling through the swamps. :)- but it's so hard to find them without having to buy ZARTAN with them. and as ya'll know that can get real expensive trying to buy 10 swamp skiers complete with ZARTAN 8)
