I can tell you how it will look. Adam Hughes made a sketch of it together with the other statue which released last year(the one where she's sitting on some boxes). She'll be standing on a base with ferns and the thing she's leaning one is a maya-ruin-thingie.
Awesomeness. To bad I probably won't have the money for it... :(

Yup, this is it:

I love that she's wearing her GoL attire and I can't wait to get it. Let's see what will be the differences between the regular and the Sideshow Exclusive editions. Legend had Excalibur, which was pretty awesome, but Snow Day just came with a color print of Adam Hughes' artwork. I suppose it's a neat extra, but it's a bit simple IMO (which is why I wasn't too bothered I didn't manage to get the Exclusive version). :hmm:

You actually buy these things? A true Lara fan would do it the Lara Way - raid the production facility and make off with the prototype :rasp::rasp:

No doubt about that. I'm all for having some cool TR collectables in my collection of... collectable stuff, but man it gets more and more expensive every year to build it up. No disrespect to Sideshow or a company of that magnitude and skill, but come on. McFarlane toys or Neca could do something just as quality that wouldn't cost consumers more then $20 TOPS.

It's going to cost a tad more than 20 bucks, unfortunately. It's also another limited run, so despite the high cost it's going to sell out fast if the previous Sideshow figures are anything to go by.

Plenty of pretty pictures (http://www.sideshowtoy.com/?p=35217) for free here, though. ;)

It's quite a master piece!!! I really love this statue! This one and the Snow Day one (also by Adam Hughes) are the best Lara statues I've ever seen!!!!

That is pretty cool. The G.O.L. top looks especialy well done, and I really like that particular top, so I'm stoked it's getting recognition. (sigh) I suppose there'll be a busted one on E Bay someday...

This thing is stunning. If it wasn't for the payment plan I would have never been able to afford the last two. I hate that I feel like I NEED them to survive!

Ok, yeah. Gorgeous as it is, it ain't $350 worth gorgeous. I don't care how many times someone tries to justify the price tag with "But it's limited to X ammount!", that's flat out robbery. Payment plan? Yeah, got one of those someone could spend $350 on. Called a car payment. $350? That's simply beyond ridiculous.
