I agree with what most of you have said already. I don't fault people for army building, but the above picture is an example of maybe taking it a little too far. Like it was mentioned, the time period makes a difference too. I'm sure many people have a whole mess of Stormtroopers, but they've probably been accumulated since 1995...that's different. This figure has been out not even a month, and you've got 95 of them already? Seriously. I too can't fathom possibly dropping that much money on figures like that, nearly $600 for an Utapau clone army.
I do minor army building, and they probably wouldn't even be considered "armies" by most collectors. I think the most I have of any one figure is maybe 6 commtech Stormies (which I got during the TRU $2 sales), and possibly 5 or so of the white clones from ROTS. I honestly don't have the budget (or space) to do much more than that, but even if I did, I couldn't see myself getting more than 10 or so (unless I really had a lot of display space). Honestly, if I'm fortunate enough to find some clones on the pegs, I usually just take what I need (usually just two) and leave the rest. I found some Utapau clones at WM earlier this week, bought 2 and left 2 more. I'm on a limited budget, and besides, someone else can have a chance at them. Its sad that the ones I leave likely go to scalpers or army builders, but I like to hope that they don't. I feel for any kids (or parents) that would like to get these clones/stormies/etc....they probably don't stand a chance. Like many of you have said, I have no problem with army building either. I'd actually like to do a little more of it with some of the OT figures (Stormie, upcoming VTSC Scout), but to me that pic in the first post is an example of hoarding...especially this early in the release.
