The "Parselen" kit may be a source for boot feet to convert the Alice kit no. 24003

I suppose they have their uses (and can be modified and added to with spare parts and puttied clothes) although once again the boxart doesn't quite match the computer rendered pose.

Figures based on exploitation movie plotlines. Right up my alley, if I wasn't so busy producing my own exploitation comics.

This is an old plotline even down to the topless gladiator.

Be really scary if these guys ever read the same webcomics I have.

Check out deviant art and search female gladiators -- a well covered trope. This stuff is HUGELY POPULAR outside of the rivet counting model building milieu.

Lots more page views than our tanks and planes.
