Default "20 Years of an Icon" TR Statues Collection Announced

#TombRaider20 Statue Collection - Vote for the 6th statue!

Our celebration of 20 years of Tomb Raider continues with the reveal of an all new Tomb Raider statue collection! The statue series will be made in partnership with our friends at Gaming Heads, each piece sculpted at 1:4 scale from hand-painted polystone resin.


We’re asking Tomb Raider fans to help us select the last statue of the set. Do you want Lara to strike a pose in her Tomb Raider: Chronicles catsuit? Or would you rather see an Angel of Darkness tribute?


***Voting Ended: Aod won most voted statue by fans!***

Past post:
Details are pretty scarce. Rumor has it that a single statue cost about $350 but nothing has been confirmed yet. Another rumour stated that for this 1/6 scale the price is around $100-150.

So let the guess work begin.

I think the statues are as follows:

1. TR1 Lara
2. TR2 Lara with uzis
3. TR Legend Lara with the grapple
4. TRU Lara - it looks like a hammer she was holding..
5. Rise Lara
6. Hopefully it's Aod statue.

I'm only interested in the Core statues.
The other ones I hope look good but I'm not interested in them in any way.

Please, please, please, be actually reminiscent of Core Lara. My expectations are set high. I want them to go in my collection.
Please don't fail me. Please

One thing that I'm sure others have noticed is that the Chronicles Catsuit statue isn't correct. She has two pistols. She never had pistols in the VCI levels of that game. She had the HKBLAHBLAHBLAH.
So essentially that statue would really be TR4/5 Lara in TR3 Lara's catsuit from London.

That's very obviously the torch and staff from Temple of Osiris.

Third from the right could be Legend or Underworld. Anniversary I think is unlikely cause there's already a TR1 statue.

If it's Legend I want it, if it's Underworld I only want the Temple one...

From their past works they seem somewhat capable.





I do hope we don't end up with monstrosity like this though:

Ah, yes. How could I forget the Lara Croft series. You could be right.

Like I said in the other thread, I think each one will cost around 50, so it will be 300 for the set. They are not that tall, and you'll be able to assemble them as shown in that middle picture. It sounds really cool.

Each of the statues has been discussed, whereby some believe it's

TR1 Lara
TR2 Lara
? Either AoD or Chronicles, depending on fan choice
Either TRL or TRU Lara
LC: ToO Lara
Rebbot Lara

I voted for the chronicles catsuit and I'm hoping the first Crystal Lara is Legend. If one is LCToO Lara, then that'd be nice and makes sense to include the LC series.

$50 per figure seems cheap for 1/4 size.

I'm hoping to get one, I think if I save, I can do it.

Maybe they'll be a package deal?
Buy 3 Core/CD and get ___% off the total price.
Buy all 6 and get ___% off the total price.
I can hope.

As long as they're good… *gets Great Knife prepared *

It looks beautiful surely, but what kind of person is gonna spend 360 quid on an inert object?
