Lara from Dallas? You know, in Plano she's gotta have what my mother used to call "the North Dallas Big Hair." :D

It's possible Allison has asked to move on. I doubt she ever considered this as anything more than a stepping stone to the next job.

Whopeee, now we can get a more matured Lara Croft Model who looks like Lara and she wont have to do the same old boring moves constintly and maybe they will show more of TR9 then the Model. ;)

I think the whole model thing is dumb, because a lot of money is spent for having one when that money could be put to better use for the game. Games just don't need them anymore.

But to be honest I don't care if they replace Alison because I didn't much like her anyway. Her looks were off and she had such a ditzy personality. :p

And only ages 18 - 24? Should be looking for someone in their 30's I think.

This has nothing to do with Alison, Lara or even TR.

Apparently not. (http://neighborsgo.com/event-detail/8864/1) The title of the article was a tad misleading :p

Sounds like they're trying to find a model to promote a totally new game.

It clearly states that this is for a new game franchise which has nothing to do with Tomb Raider.

It's kind of assumed that people will read the content and not just the title :whi:

Someone should write an article with the title 'Lara Croft to become more pigeon friendly' and within a few days we'll have a thread here with 100 pages of 'omfg pigeons dont even play TR why do eidos wanna do dat11' - 'its already pigeon friendly enough' etc.

So what happened?
I went to the site, and the picture is still just a silhouette.

I don't get it. :confused:
They say it's for a new franchise but at the same time it asks "Are you the next Lara Croft?".

It is for a new franchise, by saying "Are you the next Lara Croft", they aren't saying it's about Lara Croft (they don't mention Lara once in the article), they are just saying are you going to be the next Lara Croft (not literally).

Well, being as I hope to see the game itself revamped, I'd like to see a new model as well.

But if it has nothing to do with Eidos, isn't using "Lara Croft" to get attention inappropriate and unauthorized use of a trademark? :confused:

That was fast.. very fast. :p

She didnt' do very much, oh well.. good luck.. There are some beautiful Lara models here on the forums that would make magnificent models. :D

Clearly "Are you the next Lara Croft" means "Could your likeness (boobness) be used to inspire the next popular female video game character"

But I wonder where the thread starter got "Allison Carrol Replaced" out of that. :vlol:

Oh, poor girl, it was all Eidos fault for doing the first photoshoot with an outfit that wasn't her size.

Well one would think she would notice it herself, it doesn't take a rocket scientist to put two and two together.
