Introduction: How to Create a LEGO Star Wars Clone Army

One of the most sought after LEGO accomplishment among Star Wars LEGO fans is to create an army of clone troopers as we've seen in the Star Wars movies and television series. However, this can be a quite expensive undertaking. Here is the most affordable way to do it.

Step 1: Buy LEGO Set 8014 - Clone Walker Battle Packs

LEGO 8014, Clone Walker Battle Pack, comes with 4 clone troopers and 1 clone walker. You'll want to buy as many of these as possible to create the size army you'll shooting for. So, if you want a clone army of 40, buy 10 set. You can buy them  here at Galaxy Bricks, the LEGO Star Wars Guide. Typically, the retail price for this set is around $10.99. So buying 10 of them will cost you around $110.

Now, don't panic, we will be recouping some of your money.

Step 2: Seperate Your Clone Troopers From Your Clone Walkers

Open up all your sets and separate out all of your clone troopers from clone walker pieces. You don't need to put the Clone Walkers together, just put the pieces of each clone walker in a separate zip lock bag along with the instructions.

Step 3: Sell All Clone Walkers on Ebay

Here is were we try to recoup as much of your $110 as possible. LEGO is extremely popular on Ebay. If you still your bidding at $0.99 you'll sell your LEGO items every time. So, you'll want to sell each individual clone walker on Ebay with the instructions included. Be sure to put in the description that the item is new and has never been played with. This is a selling point to buyers. They don't want LEGO sets that have been thrown all over and have bite marks in them.

TIP: Don't overcharge for shipping, nobody will bid on your auction if the shipping is unreasonable. For this $2 max for shipping. Also, end your auctions on weekend nights, that's when most people are shopping for this stuff.

Typically, from my experience you can sell each clone walker anywhere from $3 - $5 each on Ebay. After you've sold these you'll recoup about $30 - $50 of your initial $110.

Step 4: Enjoy Your Clone Army - Repeat to Grow Your Army

Want to expand your clone trooper army to 80, 120, 160? Just repeat the steps above. This technique will work to create an LEGO army for anything as long as those mini figures are included in a battle pack. Battle packs typically are low cost and include 4 figures. So, you could do the same thing and create a stormtooper, snowtrooper, rebel solider army, etc...Galaxy Bricks is a guide to LEGO Star Wars sets and you can check there to see what battle packs are available and the mini figures included.

when I saw this, I originaly thought this would be a photoshop trick for some reason... like making a giant army pic with just 1 trooper. that wouldn't be a bad idea. anyone want me to make an ible?

Bwilson Props (author)Krayzi992014-03-29

i did that with a small clone film, i'm an ametur clone cosplayer and i always use photoshop for those pictures.

iproberry1 (author)Krayzi992012-05-09

Step 1 : Go buy a bunch of clones.

yellowexample (author)2010-05-28

 Is that picture photoshopped?

Jayefuu (author)yellowexample2010-05-28

No, just thieved from Gizmodo.

lemonie (author)Jayefuu2010-05-28

I don't get it


iproberry1 (author)lemonie2012-05-09

it is photoshoped.

Jayefuu (author)lemonie2010-05-28

He asked it it had been shopped. I think he meant did they take a pic of a couple of clones and then paste them to look like they had thousands. This picture is from a story on Gizmodo about some guys that assembled a huge clone army for charity.

lemonie (author)Jayefuu2010-05-29

I couldn't find it...
It's essentially theory, and no pictures isn't it.

Why sell the walkers when you could keep them to transport them? Sure, it gets you money but if you give them to someone like say kids they might want the transport, i mean why sell them???

I second that.

Dani1996 (author)Starwarsfanatic2011-01-07

...if you want to have some of youre money back...
I would like to keep the walker. and, is not nesessary sell it.

Now when I buy these kits, I pay at the customer service desk and open the box in front of the employee. If there are any issues, it is handled on-the-spot. Once you walk out of the door, it is your word against the store. It is impossible to prove yourself innocent. They (as I would in their position) believe the product was complete upon purchase.

Just a tip. I fell victim to somebody removing the clones, resealing, and returning the Lego package. I will not fall for this scam again. I was out purchasing 8 packages (all that were in stock) every package was missing the weapons and Clones. I should have suspected something when the store had more than they did normally.

Open them in front of employees before leaving the store to ensure you get what you paid for.....

BGreenHVAC (author)2011-04-24

This practice must be pretty common. I see that walker on E-bay a lot. I purchased one once and the seller did not mention the figures and weapons were not included.

For those who decide to build their army, at least make sure the buyer is aware that the item is the walker only. Be courteous so that here are no disputes. Also, don't be the jerk that buys the Legos from the store, takes out the parts they want, reseals the package and returns it. We wanted to build a Lego Star Wars diorama like the ships you get in the video game, and a Lego Army. We purchased every walker package only to open them to find every one was a opened and resealed package. We wanted to exchange them, but Target thought we were the ones that were pulling the scam. I haven't shopped at any Target stores since.

Good idea.

Great¡. I think i am going to do it. I am 14, but i am in love with LEGO, specially with Star Wars. thanks for posting ;)

or you could buy the sets and keep the walkers, then sell the clones for 2 for 10 bucks. im not even kidding, check ebay. so u buy 20 sets, u sell all the troopers, then u have enough moneyfor 40 sets, but u can buy 20 sets, and u can keep th money, then its like u get 20 sets, and 20 extra walkers, for free.

bbudie (author)2010-08-19

I was lucky In Ireland there was a Smyth's toy store offer that their was a coupon in The Daily Star (a 1euro newspaper). It got you 1 clone trooper + a single-trooper walker about as high as high as 1.5 clones. I bought 20 papers so I got 20 clones and 20 walkers. I sold 17 walkers on average about 1.50 each in school over a month or so, giving me a small profit, a free army and free vehicles.

this is odd... but really cool!

seabananers (author)2010-06-01

thank you so much you are my saving grace

Well done! 
This would go great with BrikWars:

I never played it, though. I gave away my legos before I found out about the site. However, I did dream of amassing an army of clone troopers of an epic scale. My army was a massive ten troopers...
