With every shopping jaunt whether online or out in the real world, the one question and rule I shop by is "What is the "yield?"
I have a rule for myself that a purchased figure for a custom, unless that figure possess an accessory I'll never find singularly, must yield 50% usable fodder for the custom pool. So far, the one that has yielded to most has been the Indiana Jones: The Last Crusade Cemetery Warrior and the Ugha Warrior. From the first, I use the skull mask, shirt, arms, hands, moccasins, stick, and relic. From the second, his top knot, head, hands, feet, bola, waist wrap. Then, from his arms and legs, I will carve off and hollow out each and every wrapped bone items that I can. These get used for all my fantasy needs.
Another would be the Frodo and Sam in Goblin armor figures. I use their armor, swords, helmets, and hollow out their leather bracers and leg pieces for other figures.
And you don't want to know how many Weapon X's are in wheelchairs now because they lack feet.
