Personly I am more concerned about the female gladiator getting a huge sword instead of a gladius. I dont have that many gladiuses after all and I dont find that the bigger swords fit the theme.

Nom, they don't. But at least the sword is nice - unlike that shield... (I believe I have bought a hundred or more of them gladius by now  :-[ )

I don't think the helmet fits either, or the loincloth, but oh well.

To pick a nit: although the sword is nice, the king shouldn't have a claymore/bastard sword. Such swords were wielded with two hands and were not used with shields. Also they were wielded by troopers, not kings. OH WELL!

I found a counterexample. Looks like I was wrong! I still maintain that this is a ceremonial use and would not be seen on the battlefield.

Its a neat sword though which is as of yet still extremely rare. Its sold with a big castle and two figures have it, and its troublesome to obtain the right figure.

Besides, plenty of regular swords to be found to replace it with and personly I always like getting more of weaponry that I have little of.. I only have one of these swords.

Don't get me wrong, I think that sword is awesome! My Scotsman wields his proudly.

Clearly this klicky is posing for a portrait, so he has his most impressive sword.  ;)

And the kept ones...  better late than never, right?


Boys



Cruzader - like I said, reducing them. Changed one of the existing ones to use this different torso+shield.
Fisherman - original
Spaceman - original
Lion King - kept two, and changed them to a knight and a wizard



Viking - obviously, torso and arms had to go.. and I gave him a "normal" head
Agent - just changed hair (and added the beard)
Wizard - as everyone else, changed the arms. Also removed the belt, and gave him a cloak.
American Football Player - just changed the hair (duh)


Girls



Pink Fairy - original
Farmer - original
Lady with Umbrella - original (well, minus umbrella)
Woman with Dog - original... considering the design, my sister found her a job - pet hairdresser!
Witch - original



Bellydancer - original
Businesswoman - skirt instead of pants (my sister's notion - a great idea!)
Skater - original
Gladiator - mostly changed, but same legs+torso...


The rabbit woman and the confederate soldier will be to check.. Others are just parts..

Wow that neckpiece really cleaned up that girl gladiator, she looks a lot better.

I do like that you got creative with the lion king, but I'd have to say I still prefer the original.

Sadly I didnt get him today, just got back from shopping, got two figures. A viking which is good, and a football player who I cant really use.
Might be usefull though since he is black, might be able to make a nice black clicky with figure parts, I dont have many black clickies.
But I imagine an american football player can be used for a gag picture or such for a contest.

I'll be messing up the viking too, definatly giving him another head and a different chestpiece if I have a figure to switch it with. I dont dare to take normal clickies apart.

Yeah, my sister says it makes the torso ok - she didn't like the torso all showing.

I don't like knights in skirts..

I dont dare to take normal clickies apart.

Why not?

I am just affraid something might break, I'm very concerned about that. And I am quite fine with using the standard clickies mostly, I tend to just mix hairstyles and accesoires which seems to work fine mostly.
