300 is a 2007 American fantasy war film based on the 1998 comic series of the same name by Frank Miller and Lynn Varley. Both are fictionalized retellings of the Battle of Thermopylae within the Persian Wars. In 480 B.C. a state of war exists between Persia, led by King Xerxes (Rodrigo Santoro), and Greece. At the Battle of Thermopylae, Leonidas (Gerard Butler), king of the Greek city state of Sparta, leads his badly outnumbered warriors against the massive Persian army. Though certain death awaits the Spartans, their sacrifice inspires all of Greece to unite against their common enemy.
From the film '300' comes a figma of the great King of Sparta, Leonidas! Using the smooth yet posable joints of figma, you can act out a variety of different scenes. He comes with two expressions including a glaring expression and a shouting expression. Both make use of UV printing for a very realistic appearance. Optional parts include various equipment used by Leonidas including his sword, shield, spear, helmet and his necklace. The memorable cape from the film is also included and made from actual fabric. A standard infantry-use helmet is also included. An articulated figma stand is included, which allows various poses to be taken.
