LEGO Wave 17 - Strong Man, Retiarius, Dwarven Berserker
This guy is pretty straightforward. He's a strong man. Like from the old-timey circus. He has a leopard strongman onesey, a totally-not-styrofoam dumbbell (It even says 100 on it! Would a dumbbell lie?), and a art of manliness movember mustache. He's not inspired, but he certainly gets the point across.
Retiarius. I just refuse to call him Gladiator, since this is like the 5th gladiator they've put out, and this one, more than the others, fills one of the classically recognized niches. I'd be happier if they gave him an arm guard, but I think we have a Brick Warriors aftermarket piece around somewhere. Again, this one's not earth shattering, but it is solid.
Dwarven Berserker. Welp, if this doesn't get them sued by Games Workshop, I don't know what will. It's a Dwarf. With a red beard. And mohawk. And two weapons. And tattoos. *cough* Gotrek *cough*
