This will be the THIRD 1/6th scale King Leonidas collectible figure to be released, after Hot Toys and MOM Toys (see the links posted in this toy blog post below).
The movie 300, adapted from the graphic novel by Frank Miller, was a hit that made director Zach Snyder a star and cemented Gerard Butler as an impressive leading man. Butler portrayed the famous Spartan king Leonidas who, according to legend, held off the Persian army with just 300 Spartan warriors. This figure of Leonidas features an all new sculpted body with over 30 points of articulation and two portrait heads; one screaming “This is Sparta!” and another calmer expression. He comes with his spear, removable helmet, sword, shield, Spartan armor and enemy arrows. A highly popular character from a classic film, this figure is sure to be in high demand.
