In 480 B.C. a state of war exists between Persia, led by King Xerxes (Rodrigo Santoro), and Greece. At the Battle of Thermopylae, King Leonidas (Gerard Butler), king of the Greek city state of Sparta, leads his badly outnumbered warriors (300 Spartans) into battle against the massive Persian army. Though certain death awaits the Spartans, their sacrifice inspires all of Greece to unite against their common enemy.
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. The film was directed by Zack Snyder, while Miller served as executive producer and consultant. It was filmed mostly with a super-imposition chroma key technique, to help replicate the imagery of the original comic book.
This isn't the first 1:6 scale King Leonidas (Gerard Butler) 12-inch figure to be released into the market and I don't think he'll be the last either. Even though the movie has long played out (there's even a sequel), King Leonidas seems to be constantly in demand. There's the Good Smile Company 16 cm tall Figma 270 "King Leonidas" from 300 action figure previewed earlier on my toy blog HERE as well as the action figure review of the much sort after Hot Toys Movie Masterpiece Series MMS114 "300" 1/6th scale King Leonidas (Gerard Butler) 12-inch collectible figure with the seamless muscle body posted HERE, HERE and HERE. This is for those who couldn't get their hands on the Hot Toys version or want to add more 12-inch Spartans to their 1:6 scale figure collection.
