Conte has a new announcement on their site about their plastic spartans. Dude, after seeing these at OTSN, I knew I needed them. The poseable figures are really a step forward for this hobby (in my humble opinion). It's something that could have been done REALLY poorly, but after seeing the samples in Chicago, I'm convinced that this is the was to go for ancients.
I wrote a post awhile back trying to figure out if these were too much like Action Figures. My fear was, are poseable toy soldiers, still toy soldiers? And if they are, will they still fall within my realm of collecting? It was a long winded post, and probably didn't make much sesnse to anyone but me. But forget all that. Plastic Spartans... bring em' on.
