Why not make iron condor (like structure) with only call options?

Looks like I have used up all my brain cells on this one and still can figure this shit out…

So I have generally ICs are a combination of put spread and call spreads with objective that the price will be in a range, which uses a bit of margin…

Scenario 1 Traditional IC:

I make traditional IC with 1SD spread and I get 115 at expiry but the collateral ($ 250) is blocked until then.

Scenario 2 Retard IC:

I make IC with calls and it costs me $140 upfront, though I profit only $110 ($5 less than traditional IC also lose $5 more if the planets don't align up) and still use the remaining $110 to lose on other shitty trades…

So my question is why in the world would use traditional IC and not the Retard IC is it just the $5 gap and not the opportunity cost of liquid money..?.

Is it just me or do I need to apply for the Nobel prize in economics for this discovery?
