A group of "shinies"
"Congratulations. You're not shinies anymore."
―Rex, to Echo and Fives — (audio)Listen (file info)

Shinie or shiny was a derogatory term used by experienced clone troopers, like Captain Rex, when referring to new clone privates, whose armor was still pristine. Hevy, Echo, Rookie, Fives, and Cutup were some notable shinies stationed on a remote outpost in the Rishi system. However, after an attack from Confederacy forces, Hevy and Cutup both perished, and Echo and Fives were inducted into the famed 501st Legion, leaving their "shinie" status behind. On Ryloth, Sergeant Kano told his new squad that they were no longer "shinies".

Behind the scenes

Although most sources spell the term as "shinie," in the Nintendo DS version of Star Wars: The Clone Wars: Republic Heroes it is spelled as "shiny."
