It's insane isn't it! Stick Tomb Raider on something, hike the price, and I bet it still sells like hotcakes. :vlol:

Damn. The last time I went bowling, we got thrown out. It was just a riot from start to finish. Our balls ended up in other lanes, we were running down the bowling alley chasing our balls. We lasted 40 minutes before we were ejected :D

Begs the question: "Did you do it on purpose?" :p

Bowling ain't my cup of tea. For indoors, give a pool table anyday. Man, its so fun to play pool.

That sucks. If it had been a big round version of Lara's head I would have been so in there getting me one of those.

Over the liiiiiine! I'm sorry, Smokie you were over the line.

I've only been bowling twice. First time in December 2003, and my first ever go I got a strike, lucky or what lol. I did alright on that day. I went again in March 2005, and I was a bit worse than the last time I went lol.

looks like they photoshopped the tomb raider letters in it.. looks really fake..

and i agree with cat.. i'd rather play some pool in stead of bowling

I am just laughing my ass off picturing Indiana Jones running for his damned life with a big bowling bowl with Lara's head chasing right after him.

Hmmm, who knew death could be so beautiful.

I'd probably buy one if it had a pic of Lara on it or something, I love bowling! :jmp:

That's unbelievable.....so they assume that anything with the words "tomb raider" or Lara's face on it will sell?

I think that's about it Lara's Boy. In fact, I know of a couple of folk who will buy anything relating to Lara Croft or Tomb Raider. And I mean anything!

That bowling ball sure does look nice... but why, oh, why is the first "R" the wrong way round in Raider?

THat is absolutely insane, and why they keep doing it. Comics, books, limited statues are kind of alright, but come on, she is just a video game character, it would be one thing if she actually went bowling in the games, lol. Hm, now that I've said that, I am sure that they will include a Lara's Bowling Adventure mini-game in TR8, right before the mushy reunion with her mother, lamo.

At any rate, this was a good laugh, even if it made me realize how desperate people are to actually make and buy these things....thanks TLR :D

We all know that you have loo roll with Lara imprinted on to it.

Basically....yeah. :)

Let me put it this way. If there was a bowling ball with Elektra on it, would you get it? :p

Actually, no, :p

She is a comic character, so if there were comics and games that featured her, then sure. But to market a character out of their element is absolutely absurd :wve:

(I'm not THAT obsessed with Elektra :p I just like that she kills people for money :D)

Ahah. So you like Assasins?!

If there was one with Spider Man or Black Cat, i'd most likely get it. Even if i don't really enjoy bowling. It would make you look like one of the following:

1) An extremely devoted fan

2) An obsessed fan

3) A Weirdo

:tea:

lol, or a conglomeration of all three :p

I don't really go bowling (I do like it, just don't do it often), and I only like TR in the game/comic universe.....so what benefit would buying a TR bowling ball have? Hell, I don't even OWN a bowling ball of my own, I always use the bowling alleys' balls :p

Same here...we just threw all the balls down one alley, jammed the machine...

For profit my friend. If the Smurfs were as popular as Tomb Raider right now you would probably see them on bowling balls too :)

I used to be a league bowler, and would spend nearly double that price on good quality bowling balls. I would be tempted, but freight would be a killer to Oz from the US.

A bowling ball is just too much
