I love the irony of collection repaints of the Clones. Good to know that some of this stuff is showing up 'discounted'. I agree that $10 can get a bit steep - especially for army building.
I'm a Seeker fanatic when it comes to TFs, so repaints are totally fine with me. But yeah, as far as the clone troopers go, I've got tons of them but even I must say the 'repaints' of them are often silly. During the ROTS toyline, or the Saga Legends or whatnot, there were some cool ones, but nowadays they've just gotten silly. I'm not a fan of the slight body design anyway, so I generally stay away from the newer clones. But back in the Battle Pack days, when you could get a Mace Windu and four or five of the clones from his unit, oh yes. I bought me all of them.
Clones are/were also the only thing I've ever army built, BECAUSE I can convince myself that they're different from each other. Unlike Stormtroopers or what have you, which all look the same and usually aren't even paint differentiated.

I remember those. Those things were awesome. Good pick up man.
