Back as a kid I couldn't dream of having two of the same figure much less five or six. I got into army building after seeing how sweet pics of mass cobra rallies looked. Thanks to guys like blaxoyzeus I want to army build more. I am still a ways off from the four hundred infantry and 200 vipers I've seen pics of on this forum. I only had one of any cobra troopers then. I had one viper, techno-viper, alley viper, range viper, sea slug, motor viper and thats it. Joes were way cooler so I considered it a waste to buy more than one of a cobra. Now its the opposite for me, if fate had it that I walked into a TRU and there was a Cobra Infantry set on the pegs along with a Anti -venom team or a Night force team I'd probably knock the joes of their pegs trying to snatch up the infantry before someone beat me to it. I hypothesize that army building is a fairly new phenomenon in the Joe collecting community. Did any of you army build in the 80s? If so what did you army build and in what quantities?
