I've picked up one of each from a netbuddy. The firing clone is a statue, and the marching clone isn't much better. They're also quite crudely made - very basic sculpting

BUT

Stick 'em in with the Hasbro troopers as part of a diorama and they blend in just fine. The add some range to the poses. Also they come with a nice 'n' chunky version of the gun that actually look like they might do some damage, unlike the Hasbro verions.

The bootlegs clones are great. I just bought the set of ten from a certain German website, and they were good value.

No action to them, so they're just statues, but they look great in amongst all your other figures. Seriously considering another 10 to build a proper army!

Will try when I get home this evening, but I'm not sure how well it will work for the bootlegs, everything seems pretty firmly in place other than the heads (and guns wihich keep falling out of the marching clones' hands).

I like the yellow clone you made. I do need one of them - I shall have to see how long it is until the clone army builder set comes out.
