Did it fit into its own magic backpack*
or did you bring it home in that magic kitty backpack?
And how big was the blister card it came on?


*Speaking of which, I never did get to read that winning essay
about Lara's backpack from a couple years back.
Is it still around anywhere?

When it gets all tangly, I wish I could detach mine, too! :o Ow! :D

Deek, remember London? We found that telephone box, eh? ;)

TDC, one of his colleagues said sadly, "I would like to have one but my wife would never let me..." ;)

dhama, he does that to me all the time, just like Patsy Cline, "I...fall...to pieces, each time someone speaks your name..."

Look at that. We caught a Mouser. :D

Don't worry, Dhama, I fixed her. ... Crazy Glue! ;)

Deek, she fits into the trunk of our Klingon Battle Cruiser. But we had to travel several million miles to pick her up.

Ha, now you should be able to put together why I took the Cat with me to Mainz. ;) As I said, Ebay is our friend. And the guy who sold her, he lived like 10 minutes from the IBM building I was assigned to, had two nice black cats as well. ... But we didn't get one of those. :)

thanhkim, after a short catnap and two health potions she felt like herself again (see second picture).

Handy! Take her with you next time you want to get served quicker at the supermarket - put her in one queue while you wait in another. :)

Is that a C64 I spy under the telly?

1. I've seen those before, but this time nobody's inside them!
2. Who's this? Shouldn't he be on Lara's shoulder instead of a bear?
3. Is that part of that Lara standee? Maybe Lara and Shuey could do an advert together. Even if I never got to see it.
4. Hmmm. Can't tell. Looks familiar. LOTR related?
5. Piggy bank or Cookie jar?
And yes, I do see that little Dune item...

GoranAgar
23rd Feb 2004, 18:06
Wee Bald Man, yes, it is. :)
DEEKMAN, you and Nerevar should join the NID or the NSA :D
1. She has another 3 pairs....
2. That's not a bear! That's a chocolate point Siamese....Maybe he needs a bath...
3. That's the ugly bottom to that cardboard standie, an add campaign from a cellphone company....
4. It's one of those electric storm lamps, it used to be flanked by many old and cool joysticks which have been relocated....
5. Piggy bank. Empty now. :o
As for Dune, you've only seen the beginning. Someone's quite the fan... :D

And what about the 8 Star Trek TNG boxes???

3.1 'Vodafone bringt Tomb Raider aufs Handy'
6. One little Dune item? What about that DVD case, 5th or 6th box from the left.
7. Lara sees that camera stand.
8. X - 1,2,3,4,5,6,7. X could be Season 6, could be the TV Movies Box Set (although that's normally red). Could also be a gift from Paramount for all the ST-DVSs you've purchased :D.
9. Could be Resident Evil.

You need to install more Castle Cameras :D.

3.1 Do you want to go to my Puppy-School classes for me? :D
6. Where you see one DUNE DVD box, there are actually 5 in a row! The frontal would be the sixth! :o
7. That camera stand is holding the kean-o view- (or spy-) glass Goran's parents gave me for my birthday. To, you know, stake out the birds, hehehe ;D
8. Could be, could be, should be, but no. :p
9. :eek: Your circle is off by one shelf, but you are right, it's Resident Evil! In the special blood pack DVD cover! Gosh.

I expected you to see what's just under her elbow, as well as what's above her head, and I expected a guess as to what is above the TNG boxes.... ;)

We're working on it, ;)

No thank you. But thank you for asking ;). Frege's Sinn und Bedeutung und Leibniz's 'Eadem Sunt' 'Salva Veritate' sind all I take for now kann :o.

You mean the EF2 poster? And a TIE fighter or Klingon Bird of Prey below her elbow? Nah, make that Deep Space Neun. And, as a wild guess, the NCC Enterprise above the TNG boxes? :confused: ;)

Since we all know that cats have supremely excellent vision, a cat with a spyglass has got to be extra dangerous.
Birds better beware!

Where can I buy one of these statues? Brand new especially? Or 2nd hand? What are they called? How much do they cost?

I liked that spot the difference game. It reminds me of those primary school puzzle books that you get. Usually comes with join the dots or something.

Thanks!

Is Angelina Jolie five foot nine, about 175 cm tall too?

Is Lara Croft in the video game supposed to be 175 cm tall?

They have been produced in Germany by Muckle Mannequins (http://www.mucklefiguren.de/sites_german/frame_gross.html). They produces 3 different Lara statues. The only way to get one of the first two is second hand.

4th Mar 2004, 11:11
Thanks. Second hand? I guess by ebay? Anywhere else? I can imagine the international shipping costs. About 500 pounds/bucks?

Are there also maybe 10 inch or higher or lower figurines of the Video game Lara? What is their manufacturer? How much do they cost? Can I get them in toyshops or Amazon?

I just visited the Muckey Mannequins website, and there is a Lara Croft in a black singlet/tank top. Why isn't it clickable?

That sixty centimetre bust of Lara without arms sure looks shonky without arms. But good everywhere else.

That picture is just an eyecatcher for the first page. Check it out, she is also amongst the other figures (5th from the left). There she is also clickable.

They have only the AOD Lara in a small version. Click "Kleinfiguren" to see the small ones. They are about 40 cm in hight.

Yes, the only way to get one is ebay.de or a game store that has one of them as decoration.

Has anyone seen the Lethal and Loaded DVD documentary yet?

Wow. I wish they would make a mannequin Lara in a para-bikini top or something. Although it isn't conventional in Tomb Raider games it would look good.

Eight hundred pounds for five feet? She's almost as tall as the door. Preferred the light blue or cyan topped Lara with short jeans though.

I guess the owner he's seven feet tall, and thinks that Lara's five feet tall, but strangely almost as tall as the door.

The website above by Studio Oxmox ?sole? distributor for Muckle mannequins

800 pounds is still pretty cheap, although much more expensive than an action figure from Toys R Us.

Lara could be much much taller, since she's doing a para-legsplits in the torch light, light blue or cyan top mannequin with short jeans/leather pants. If she wasn't doing the para splits she might be six foot two. But she wasn't doing the para splits in the AOD black top version.

No offence, but when I was doing Biology and Microbes, we had to put Agar in petri dishes after exposign them to air in e.g. the public toilet. Agar means jelly in Indonesian or something.

But Western scientists use Agar as a name for jelly to grow microbes (Agar is also sometimes mixed with Bovril or beef extracts)

nbs1243
5th Mar 2004, 02:49
THanks, Goran, Yes, that black topped miniature 30 cm Lara had brown leather shorts on, instead of the "5 foot ebay" very long camouflage pants. Maybe the long pants was easier to sculp.

http://www.mucklefiguren.de/sites_german/frame_klein.html

On the other hand, I heard the Tomb Raider movie action figures were 3D laser scanned on Angelina Jolie for accuracy.

Cookie monster want that too, me do. Well, if you're planning of transporting five foot ebay lara in the car, make sure the seat belt doesn't scratch paint off or the car door doesn't, not unless you have a carton full of bubble plastic wrap or styrofoam. I have a headache.

The 30cm statue is partially as long as the mound Lara is standing on.

Anyhow, were the mannequins or 30 cm statues hand painted or machine/robot painted? :rolleyes:
