Roman Commander is a 71001 Minifigures Series 10 minifigure released in May 2013.[1]


The Roman Commander has yellow legs, a crimson waist, a stone-grey torso, yellow arms, and yellow hands. Crimson and brown printing on his legs make it appear that he is wearing a skirt, and some thin printing on his feet give the impression that he is wearing sandals. His torso is printed to have the appearance of armour. The armour appears to be muscular due to muscle lines, and features a decoration at the top. A brown rope is printed diagonally across his torso, and a brown belt is visible at the bottom. He has a yellow head with brown eyebrows, black eyes, white pupils, and a serious-looking face. These features combine to give him a serious frown. His light grey helmet is similar to that of the Roman Soldier, except it has a large red plume on top. Plumes of horsehair were worn by those of centurion rank and above in the Roman army. Commander's plumes went from left to right and the ranks above went from front to back. He wears a red cape and carries a gladius sword.

Official Description This is a description taken from Do not modify it. (see the source of this quote)

"For the glory of Rome!"

The Roman Commander can’t wait to lead the legions of Rome to victory. He keeps his sword sharpened, his armor polished, and his helmet’s horsehair crest neatly brushed at all times, just waiting for his emperor to give the order to charge.

The Roman Commander has studied all of the great battles and is sure that his tactics will win the day. The empire’s enemies will surrender, its borders will grow, and he will join the ranks of the most famous military leaders in history. He’s sometimes a little worried about the fact that his legions are made up of a single Roman Soldier, but at least it makes it easy to shout out commands!
