Unsurprisingly, as the months have gone on, the base Spartan Warrior figure from BossFightShop has dwindled in available stock until it eventually vanished entirely.  Considering the backbone of the entire Virtuvian HACKS human forces are made up of the Spartans, this seems like a problem for the human race as the Gorgons press their attack!

Have no fear… Boss Fight Studio went back to the factory and had a fantastic Spartan Warrior update created, with just some minor tweaks.

Keep in mind that there are collectors out there with countless Spartans already, and many of them probably love the consistency in deco with the armor, swords, and shields.  For that reason, Boss Fight didn’t tweak the accessory or armor colors at all.  What you see with each Spartan Warrior version 2 is essentially the same as what you saw with the first release Spartan, just now, these are actually available for sale!  Go figure.

However, in order to add some variety, what the Boss Fight folks did was give the second version Spartan a slightly darker skin tone and a black hair and beard.  The result is a figure which blends perfectly with his 299 fellow soldiers on your display shelf, but also adds some uniqueness and difference to the soldiers underneath the armor.  It really is the perfect combination.

Because this figure is so similar to the one already released, it’s tough to find new avenues to explore with an additional review.  Trust me when I say the sculpting and articulation are just as impeccable now as they were a year ago, and actually I kind of like the darker color of the skin and hair better on this second version than I did the first time around.  This Spartan blends really nicely with both the Spartan Warrior and the Ultimate Spartan and I have no doubt that even folks who do not aggressively army build will soon have displays full of Spartan Warriors (as well they should).

Accessories

There isn’t much to talk about here, the accessories are all (mostly) the same.  The only real difference is that this Spartan Warrior shield is one of the new shields with a larger hand grip, which allows male hands to hold it more effectively than the previous version.  Beyond that, the accessory compliment and paint deco are the same deal.

This figure is pretty much the base figure for the Vitruvian HACKS Series 01 assortment, and it is spectacular.  Anyone who needs more Spartan Warriors should not fear in scooping this one up, and anyone who does not need more Spartan Warriors definitely needs new Spartan Warriors, they just haven’t realized it yet.  SPAAAARTTAAA!

Summary

A nicely balanced update to the original Spartan Warrior, keeping the accessories the same, while slightly tweaking the paint deco for the skin and hair color to add some nice variety to your legions of Spartan Warriors. Exceptional articulation, really great construction, and superb paint applications makes for another great Vitruvian HACKS action figure.
