Default We're finally getting a Tomb Raider Barbie!

Mattel shared their Spring 2018 Line Up with some retailers already so we got a glimpse at some of the upcoming Barbie Collector dolls. Next to the Gigi Hadid Tommy Hilfiger doll (that's not the topic though :P) we're getting a Lara Croft Tomb Raider doll based of Alicia Vikander. So we're basically getting a reboot Lara doll in her reboot outfit. Knowing Mattel her face will probably be a mix of the actress and Lara's videogame face. Kinda sad we're not getting any of the other actresses and actors. She'll cost $40 and should be available at all major retailers just like the current Wonder Woman Barbies.

My biggest hope is that they might reveal a special Classic Lara Croft doll later. They did that with the $200 Wonder Woman 2-Pack this year too. I also think we might get Tomb Raider action figures if Mattel got a big license for the movie/game series.

That's interesting. Really the classic outfit? And I thought that Mattel wanted to go away from the bad image Barbie had due to her looks and what do they do? Put her into the clothes of a 90s video game character who got a lot of flak for being sexualised and wearing said clothes.

Action figures would be interesting. Back in the 90s Mattel made some pretty cool Disney figures.

I just realised I wrote "Reboot classic outfit" I'm sorry She'll wear her REBOOT outfit and I'm hoping for a Classic Lara that might be revealed later on as a Special Edition doll. These are the Wonder Woman dolls so expect something in this level of Detail I guess...

It seems like we'll get the Barbie statues before the 20th anniversary statues.

Don't worry, I found the link.

Thanks for the link, but due to our rules, I removed it, not sure it's allowed . I found it anyway .

Actually, as this is movie Lara specific, it may be better in the TR movie section.

Aw, now I'm disappointed! Though I guess that'll be possible to dress her in the Angelina Jolie Lara doll clothes.

Well, it's easier to produce Barbie dolls than expensive, overly detailed statues.
