Incoming: CM Toys 1:6th scale Rome Gladiator Warlord Edition GOLD version - think Spartacus

Does this look familiar? If it does, it's because CmToys had also released pictures of this identical set earlier (see my post HERE), except now this is the GOLD version. Guess everyone's doing a Hot Toys and decided to repaint existing molds and re-sell them as variants.

CM Toys No.H011 will be the 1:6th scale Rome Gladiators Warlord Edition GOLD version which is inspired by the TV series "Spartacus: Blood and Sand" with Andy Whitfield playing the historical figure of Spartacus, a Thracian gladiator who from 73 to 71 BC led a major slave uprising against the Roman Republic.

This incoming CM Toys 1:6th scale Rome Gladiator Warlord Edition GOLD version set includes: Head sculpt of Andy Whitfield as Spartacus, chest and shoulder armor, Leather Belt, Leg armor x 2, Cloth Leggings x 2, Scimitar x 2, interchangeable Hands x 6, Roman feet (1 pair), Cloth wrist x 2, gauntlets x 2, Underwear, Ribbon, Cloak / cape, Helmet (Crixus' helmet)

Note: CM Toys says that this product does not include BODY. Nor does it contain a bust. This product is recommended to use CMTOYS BODY (HJ001) as other body types do not fit!

The one that's been posted earlier is the screaming head version. This is a new, calm head version with several new items added (helmet, cape, etc).

Overall, this appears to be a nice set although it looks cheap compared with ACI's gladiators. So far ACI seems to have done a much better job with these 12-inch gladiator figures. And don't you find the poses rather stiff?
