Maybe for you, but for $20-$25 I would want 18-20 plastic models at least and if I want more options I will kitbash them from other sets.

IF we did them there would probably only be 12 in a box, not 30 and they'd sell for the same price as all of the other boxes $21.95-$24.95 USD. I can see a sprue with 6 bodies and a multitude of add-ons/weapons and head option; maybe a lion or 2 and possibly a casualty.
If we did a box of 12 at $24.95, would you pay $2.07 (before tax or VAT) for them?
I'd call that a fair price. If the set included one female gladiator pose with some arm and head options as well as a lion or two I'd say gladiator set for the win. Further, such a set would be great for fantasy RPG character conversions. If the body armor such as greaves are separate parts, then so much the better.
Okay if you add Two lions or tigers it might go on my list, but might I suggest that instead of cramming all the options into one box we make a couple of sets and have open hands for the gladiators.
