So, who's got one? Who wants one? What are people's opinions?

I just scooped one up on eBay (http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&ih=004&sspagename=STRK%3AMEWN%3AIT&viewitem=&item=140077301475&rd=1&rd=1) recently, and it just came in the mail today. I'm very satisfied with it. :) I wasn't sure I'd like it at first when I saw it in the package, especially with OAFE's review (http://www.oafe.net/yo/necaps1tr.php) saying that the paint job is often hit-or-miss, but after getting it out of the package and messing with it, I like it a lot. :)
There's a lot of detail on it from Tomb Raider: Legend, and while the facial sculpt doesn't quite look like Lara did in the game, I'm still very satisfied. She's got the grapple on her belt, grenades at her back, the backpack (where you can sling the shotgun she comes with), both pistols, a grenade launcher, and Excalibur. Right now I've got her with her pistols holstered, Excalibur in her left hand, and one-handing the shotgun in the other.
If I can get ahold of my friend's camera, I'll try to take some pics and post 'em.

My opinon = they got the Pete Burns doll and the Lara Croft figure mixed up.

I've honestly never seen a more hideous figure! She looks nowhere near as beautiful as the pixelly version!

First rule of plastic surgery: Lips should be smaller than face.

pete burns never used to have lips like that. he had a bad foreign substance injected into his lips and they got infected hes had over 100 surgeries to fix them and he might have to have the amputated off later this year. pete has gone through hell so i think you should all understand his situation before making comments and taking the **** outta him

As I linked in the first post, I used eBay, but it took a lot of searching before I found one that was less than $22 or something like that. I can only assume they'll start showing up in stores soon, I suppose, and you can be sure that once that happens, there'll be more of them on eBay.

Eh, to each their own, I suppose. I happen to like the figure, and I find it looks better in person. Now I've got 3 Lara Croft figures - I've got one of the catsuit Lara figures, the basic Lara figure from the first movie line (I like that figure a lot, I think it looks a lot like Angelina Jolie), and now the TR: Legend figure I just got.

I know. I liked the guy when he was on BB, a complete prat though he can be, I found him intelligent and witty. I'm just saying the figure looks like him - and he's hardly the face of beauty.
