So Lego has released their next batch of collectable minifigures, Series 5. Essentially each pack has 1 random minifigure from the series but you can get a good idea of what it is by just feeling the pieces in the package. I got interested in these last series when I went out and got my daughter the Geisha minifigure (or Asian Princess for her). She also wanted a figure skater which I failed to properly identify at the store (ended up with wolf man when opened) so I got her one on ebay.
Now the new series has come out and I knew she would want the Cleopatra figure since she loves ancient Egyptian stuff. So I went out feeling and came back with these three.
I was looking for a Cleopatra, Gladiator, and Evil Dwarf but ended up picking 2 gladiators. Not to bad since the gladiator is just awesome. Follows the style of a Murmillo pretty closely with the helmet, armor style, and gladius sword. Only problem is the circular shield which should be more of a traditional legionar style (curved rectangle).
Even his arm has scale style overlapping plates. I went back to get some more figures at my local target a week later but they had sold all of their shipment except for 1 packet. Turned out to be the Evil dwarf I was looking for earlier. I will still have to get some more of the figures since my daughter wants a few more of the female characters.
