The clones are repainted Stormtroopers. They could be replaced with Episode 2 clones from the Risk Board game however those are all one pose. The sculpting of the Micromachines is a bit bloby, so one can get away with paint job conversions. The stronghold is a scratch-built landing pad with a Jedi cruiser.
