Subject:figurine up for sale

I have this Figurine, I am not sure if it's Samurai or not and I am not sure about the Mark on the bottom, it's 2 characters with letter G and number 18, and I am not sure about the value either.

I am open to your opinions and offers

This is a late 20th century product of the Chinese tourist & gift shop industry, representing in miniature one of the soldiers in China's famous terra cotta army, which was unearthed in the 1970's and now is on display at the tomb of the Qin Emperor at Xian, Shaanxi.

An Asian products store in my neighborhood closed several years ago, and sets of six of these guys were going for about US$15 in the original box.

Best regards,

Bill H.
