Designed for combat down to the very last genome, Clone Troopers were the faceless, nameless heroes swooping in to save the Jedi during the finale of Star Wars: Attack of the Clones. It was only years later in Star Wars: The Clone Wars animated series that these characters began to have stories, histories and personalities that only made Order 66 that much more tragic.
With more than seven seasons of content showcasing multiple battalions and special forces, there is no shortage of LEGO Clone Trooper minifigures. Blocks, the monthly LEGO magazine, is grabbing a speeder bike to race through the best ones so far.
Clone Trooper 501st Legion (322nd Battalion)
A gift from Captain Rex to Ahsoka Tano, the 322nd Battalion decorated their armour using the colours of Ahsoka’s tattoos and montrals. It’s an incredible mark of respect and a very touching scene in the final Star Wars: The Clone Wars season, although Order 66 leads the troopers to ultimately betray the young Jedi. These minifigures are beautifully printed with the intricate designs and the set – 75359 332nd Ahsoka’s Clone Trooper Battle Pack – has sold out numerous times since release.
Clone Trooper 187th Legion
Who are the 187th Legion? They are the Clone Trooper legion led by Mace Windu, so of course they wear purple accented armour to match his lightsaber. Their debut actually goes back to a Hasbro exclusive toy called Mace Windu’s Attack Battalion. They have never appeared on screen, so their appearance in 75342 Republic FIghter Tank is a rare one.
Commander Gree (Kashyyyk)
As Battle Droids swarm across the marshes of Kashyyyk, Master Yoda watches alongside Commander Gree. Sensing the looming dark presence of Order 66, the Jedi is forced to cut the commander down and flee the world. Even before being posted to Kashyyyk, Gree always wore some form of green armour. Although there have been a few versions of his character, this one from 2014’s 75043 AT-AP has the most detailed printing.

Clone Trooper (Geonosis)
These sandy armoured troopers have only ever appeared in one set, which is aptly named 75089 Geonosis Troopers. Although their armour is painted specifically for the Second Battle of Geonosis, the special ops squadron fought across numerous planets during the Clone Wars, each time sporting a new camouflaged armour. They’re perfect for army building to go up against a Spider Droid.
Although they’re called Coruscant Guards on the box for 75354 Coruscant Guard Gunship, these red armoured clones are actually shock troopers. Already they’re nearing the Imperial armour style, suggested by the Phase III helmet the minifigures wears. These troopers were assigned to protect government facilities and would often accompany officials on diplomatic missions.
Clone Trooper 104th Battalion
Only ever featured in two sets, the 104th Battalion is perhaps the most unusual on this list. Most famously seen in Malevolence arc from Star Wars: The Clone Wars Season 1, these troopers were under the command of Plo Koon. Nicknamed the Wolfpack they have a stylised wolf emblem on their armour, which is clearly seen printed on the trooper’s helmet. These minifigures can be found in 75045 Republic AV-7 Anti-Vehicle Cannon.
