These look very much like Mythic Legions, and you can definitely see the inspiration from their Calavius figure! While the articulation is improved in comparison, the $60.00 price tag is too high for my tastes. Great figures though.

I like that these look to have some basis in historical fact. I see some strong inspiration from the retiarius, murmillo & secutor gladiator classes. Looks like they mixed and matched some of the weapons of other classes with the murmillo. Maybe to better differentiate it from the  secutor. I've seen the curved sword before, but I'm not sure if it was generally associated with the murmillo class. The mail arm also looks a bit out of place to me but I don't know if gladiators used mail. The more common depiction tends to be the padded or plate armored arm.  

The company shows some Roman soldier types on their Facebook page. They look more like the ceremonial Pratorian types as opposed to legionaries or centurions. They look nice if not a bit bulky. I'm inclined to keep an eye on this company to see where they go with the military types since I much prefer that aspect of ancient Rome to the gladiators.
