Found a bargain on some ficus trees... what now?

At a local garage sale yesterday I purchased four ficus trees for a couple bucks a piece, with the idea of possibly turning at least a few of them into bonsais. I believe the species is the Benjamina, but these are actually my first ficus trees ever and I figured I would check with the pros here.

All of them seem to be in relatively good health. The root balls were damp when purchased and have since been potted around to fill what I had on hand pot-wise. New growth is appearing in several places on each tree. I think they were hit by a storm or something, but the woman assured me they'd bounce back strong.
