Mike Kutnick posted in the comment section more information on the new Barzso Playsets’ new Roman Coliseum. Here is just a part of his comment

The Plastic warrior show is up. sorry there are not more pictures , I decided not to carry the heavy camera. I did some pictures with the phone some turn out good others did not which were the show pictures. The video camera I am trying to find a cord to transfer the pictures and my small camera would not take the chip.
