300 for 3/10/2013

In our movie toys, we got in King Leonidas from the epic film, 300.  Like many of these type of toys, it is highly detailed and would look good in any collections. He has his signature sword, and two different heads, one with and one without helmet.  Leonidas is marked at $25.

*The Battle of Thermopylae was of course written by the classical Greek author, Herodotus, who lived in the Persian city of Halicarnassus. His book, 'The Histories' became part of Western folklore only recently. It was not until about 1850 that America embraced Herodotus as the leading authority on Persian history.*
