Check out this awesome new Lara statue from Sideshow called Snow Day. It's a real beauty.

The Exclusive edition of the Lara Croft statue will be priced at $259.99 ( :eek: ) and will include a print of the design artwork created by Adam Hughes, while the regular edition, without the print, will be priced at $249.99. Pre-orders will be opening this week, we'll pass on the links as and when.

jesus christ!!!!!

question : i know im being picky but why don't we ever get to see what the price is in Sterling?

that said that looks marvellous


Also Keir i was wondering could you answer an off topic question?

Will we ever see the classic TR titles so from TR1 - TR AOD on XBLA and PS store in europe? they apparently have them all in USA which is ironic as those games were all developed and published by British teams lol

Looks awesome!!!

Glad I did a search as I almost posted this in the GD forum.
Kotaku have also run the story today: http://kotaku.com/5512214/even-lara-croft-deserves-a-snow-day

First there was the art book for $110 & now a statue for freaking $250!!! This is starting to get annoying. Why don't Eidos start commissioning products for the masses like they used to in the glory days & not just for the handful of ultra hardcore collectors?!?!

She doesn't look like Lara at all to me. Maybe her back side yes but the face ... weird.

Am I the only who thinks it's naff, like every staute they make?

Then again I'm the kind of male thats like a kid when it comes to technology, but throw statues that cost way more than they probably cost to make in my face, I will not be interested...:lol: Now, if it was a robot lara then that would be a different kettle of fish!

Her expression makes me think she's thinking - "see your wallet? I just stole it!":rasp:

Wow! *blinks* That looks stunning! I love the drawing as well. I love playing that Nepal level in Legend *daydreams*
This is actually the prettiest Lara figure I've seen so far. The only point of concern is the map, it looks like it's might be easy to damage.

Going back a few posts. I miss Larazade too. I don't have any of the bottles but I do have the stickers from Tomb Raider 3 that I got from a cereal box. I remember getting those *daydreams again*

Probably.

Some people might not like the face or something else, but "naff"?

I'm sorry, its a word my annoyingly (spelt right) small sister likes to shout about when I see her and thanks to her its a word I can't stop using as its stuck in my head!:mad2: But, by 'naff' I do mean the faces (which I probably should have put before) cause they always look... weird?

Then again I think anythings 'not great' if it costs that much:eek: Unless its robot lara:cool:

The statue is amazingly detailed. I looks that the designers were inspired by Underworld Lara, which is a good thing. Still, I wouldn't pay so much for a figure.
Keir, I smell a competition ahead. ;)

The new staue looks fantastic, but it does not come close to the hand painted resin figure (400mm) that they released at the same time as TR3. In fact, I have just checked the merchandise brochure in the TR3 box & it cost a grand total of £34.99!!!

All things 'Tomb Raider' were just so 'right' back in the day...Oh, the memories :)

Here she is:

see that lara even though its based on the old model actually looks likes the old model

this lara statue doesn't actually look like a lara we have ever seen lol

i wish they would come out with some smaller cheaper , cost effective models i would by one but im not buying the one shown in this thread because it is too expensive

Best Lara figurine I have ever seen, look at the details! :eek:

And look at that price! :eek: x2!

i just don't know why they cannot make a Lara Croft statue that gets the face right, i have seen many and none of them have ever gotten the face right its always wrong in some way or another

in this case she has a very square head

I said it at TRF, and I'll say it here. I think that statue is one of the most gorgeous pieces of Raider merch ever. It's amazing.

I think it's great. all that detail, and Lara actually looks very elegant. It's interesting how people bring up 'the right face' when Lara has had a few face changes. So what is the right face? It's very obviously Lara, that's what matters.

Plus complaining about why isn't it cheap like the old days? Well price has gone up on everything since then. It's expensive but what i've come to expect really.

What is the map made of though?

The price is a little shocking. She looks nice and the details are great but I think it’s unusual to not see her in an "action pose". I don’t really see Lara sitting there.

I think for once Adam Hughes (Who did the covers for the Tomb Raider Comics) wanted to have a nice explorer pose rather than action. Nice, and I'm betting it's well worth the price. :D

Hmmm... How is it that this statue has awesomeness that isn't reached in the games?

Seriously Lara should have big cases of gear and maps :/ It just feels this is how Tomb Raiding should be. :thumb:

it is full of epic win but when people say the right face , (yup myself included) i think what they mean is that the face should look like the current gen game or well thats what i am thinking lol, that said my opinion of the statue has gone from 'meh' to 'me wants' :D

Ah but I didn't like the current game face Danielsun so I myself am pleased. :p But even with the Underworld Lara there were a few different faces. Like, some of the big flashy renders were beautiful, but in game Lara didn't look the same to me.

That looks like an interesting figure of our Lara, one I am considering collecting. However there is another figure of her I have been trying to hunt down which, to date, I have been unsuccessful in finding. It is one of her with no clothes on and about to pounce/jump. I have a picture of the the figurine but it may not be appropriate to post it here....does anyone know the figure of Lara I am referring to and where I can locate one to add to my growing collection?

At the start of the Croft Manor Lara returns home. On a table she finds a note by Winston.

I believe it is amazing. Lara, and all that depth really seems quite refined. So what's the right face? It is quite clearly Lara, that is really what matters.
Well cost has gone up on everything since then. It is pricey but what I've come to expect extremely.
