I wouldn't mind a lifesize Lara, and it's not anything I could get/even think about for the near future but I was wondering what a decent price is for a good, non-fake one.

Here is one on Ebay atm;

Is that a reasonable price? Where would I look if Ebay didn't have them on offer? Are classic lifesize Lara's still around?

Whew, lotsa questions, I'm sorry.

I think life-size lara's are rare tbh. I'd love one.
I remember they used to have the TR:4, her holding a torch in the games shop near me, was amazing, stopped and stared everytime i went past.
I don't think that is a reasonably price atm but in a few years to come they will be very expensive as they are collectors items.

From my point of view, the price seems average.
I've also seen better quality ones.

Aww I want one of those, :p Don't know how much that would be in US dollars. But it would probably be too much for me.

I'd buy it if I could (actually I'd go for the Legend one)

I guess you could get a clothing store mannequin and dress it up like Lara. Could be cheaper that way...

The TRL one however:

That Legend one is absolutely stunning. Wow.

If I was any good at changing models like some people are I'd probably buy that 50 one and do it up. Unfortunately my arty skills stretch to drawing stick-men.

lol at this;

Reason for sale it scares my boy so she has lived with my mum since he was 11 he is now 14 and she wants rid.

Edit; damn, pick up only and i'm too far.

Do they ever sell these things as actual merch? Or do they just come from Game shops?

george_croft
16-05-08, 08:43
I have no idea. But i could imagine them being very limited in stock if sold as merch. I know Justin has got the TRL one at home though, you could try and ask him if he got his directly from Oxmox or a gameshop.

touchthesky
16-05-08, 08:44
Okay, I'll give him a PM if I can find a post from him :D.

Thanks.

Another question (sorry about these); Do you think if they do give them out in Game shops it's a buying thing or a first come first served thing?

Ooooh I want one, the first one I mean, but the face is kinda too big?

These things are designed by Oxmox, but manufactured by a German company www.mucklefiguren.de for Eidos. Eidos sells them to game retailers. And sometimes Eidos gives them away to very special people. ;)

So, whenever you see one of them on eBay they usually are a game store or bought it from a game store. You can not buy them directly from Oxmox or Muckle.

Just watch out for armed police raids. Does anyone remember when this happened?

When police spotted a gun-wielding suspect lurking in the shadows of a suburban front room, their response was swift.

Armed officers burst into the house, shouted at the owner to lie on the floor, and ordered him to surrender his weapon.

But efficiency turned to embarrassment when the "gunman" turned out to be a life-sized model of the video game character Lara Croft, complete with trademark outsized pistols.

Computer shop owner David Williams, 42, had taken the dummy home to put it up for sale on the auction site eBay.

As the source of the confusion dawned on all concerned, it might have been the moment for an apology from the police.

Instead, however, Mr Williams was taken to the cells and held for more than 13 hours before being released.

He is now on bail for a suspected firearms offence, and Lara Croft remains impounded as evidence.

Hmm... It doesn't appear to be fully poseable, and the clothes look like they're attached.

No no no, that wouldn't do at all!

Nah, it is not lifesize, not authorized and not really pretty. ;)

How much would they be worth? :p
450/500 sounds about right for an original. There is only a limited amount of statues in existence.

Maybe we can do something like that with the statue and then send the tape to CD XD

She has a look of disgusted amusement.

I didn't even know such a look exsisted.

I want to buy her so everyone will be jealous.
