The parts assortment are below average and like what I mentioned above, it will be better if they have an additional accessory to accompany him. The outfit did not strike me as a Gladiator and I thought he was some native warrior or something else. His design does not fit as the iconic gladiator which you hope for. Not sure of what you guys think but this is one of the weakest link for me.
All in all, I think this is a good figure, but definitely not a standout. Not something I'd go specifically to look for, but still, a nice figure.
I think if he had come with a net, it might shift my opinion slightly, but as it stands a boring uninspired character with no redeeming accessories just don't quite cut it when the other minifigures in this set are mostly exciting.
I have to admit, I don't think that Series 17 is nearly as strong as some of the previous series. There are very few "must have" figures for me in this series, in fact, I think my list only consists of the: Chef, Vet, Corn Cob Guy, Hot Dog Guy, Rocket Boy, and Elf Maiden. Six out of sixteen isn't a good ratio for "must haves." On the flip side, I generally don't care for the Surfer, Strongman, Butterfly Girl, Gladiator, Yuppie, or Fitness Instructor. That's six figures that I find generally uninspiring (again, not a good ratio).
It might look fairly boring compared to others in this series but it has excellent torso and leg printing, bi-coloured legs and one bi-coloured arm. I suspect the hairpiece is new, too.
The costumed characters such as the rabbit, pig, and hot dog have been wildly popular, so it's nice that the Corn Cob Man is one of the most common in this series. The other two common figures are the Circus Strong Man, which seems an odd choice, and the Mystery Character.
