ACI Toys ACI-19 1/6 scale Warriors series: Thracian General 12-inch figure is coming soon

The first historical record about the Thracians is found in the Iliad, where they are described as allies of the Trojans in the Trojan War against the Greeks. Thracians were regarded by other people as warlike, ferocious, and bloodthirsty. They were seen as "barbarians" by ancient Greeks and Romans. Plato in his Republic considers them, along with the Scythians, extravagant and high spirited and his Laws considers them war-like nations grouping them with Celts, Persians, Scythians, Iberians and Carthaginians.

Spartacus was a Thracian enslaved by Rome, who led a large slave uprising in Southern Italy in 73–71 BC. Before being defeated, his army of escaped gladiators and slaves defeated several Roman legions in what is known as the Third Servile War.

This will be an upcoming release from ACI Toys: ACI-19 1/6 Warriors series: Thracian General 12-inch figure. ACI pretty much specialize in the warriors from the late BC / early AD period. They have released a 1/6 scale Roman Gladiator "Flamma" 12-inch Figure in the past (reviewed HERE and HERE) and followed that up with the disastrous "Total Rome!" 1/6 scale Roman Legionary Optio 12-inch action figure (reviewed HERE, HERE and HERE)

This looks pretty nice and brings to men the exceptional Hot Toys Movie Masterpiece Series MMS114 1/6 scale King Leonidas 12-inch collectible figure from the movie "300". Check out the reviews and pictures posted on my toy blog HERE, HERE and HERE.
