Ignite Roman Tribune

Via Wiki,

Tribune (from the Latin: tribunus; Greek form tribounos) was a title shared by 2–3 elected magistracies and other governmental and/or military offices of the Roman Republic and Empire. It derived originally from the representatives of the tribes (tribus) into which the Roman people were divided for military and voting purposes.




The helmet, pompei and pugio are made of die cast metal, while the cuirass is cast in plastic. The cuirass negates any torso articulation, sadly. The sandals are made of rubber and the outer tunic is pleather. The joints are tight on the Ignite body, which feels rather brittle and veers on Medicom's plastic quality.



























I'll be switching the body with a better articulated one in the next post, do watch for it.

    Thanks for posting these pics. I have the tribune on order and now look very much forward to getting him.

    What do you think of the shoes? They look a bit odd in your pic.

    most welcome Amithi, glad to fuel your anticipation for this item. :)

    The sandals are functional at best.
