I'd post the unedited version if I didn't think it'd cause issue.


What is this abomination? I know Lara was always sexualized but I think this takes it too far. If this is, in-fact official then I am shocked they allowed it.

I've never seen that one before. A bit over the top perhaps, but cool nontheless! :)

No way that figure is official. Can't imagine Eidos would ever license or endorse something that sexual. I mean, I know they liked to sexualize Lara back then, but they had limits, frontal nudity being one of them.

Wow. She looks like she swallowed a bag of steroids and rage inducers.

Oh my goodness why did I look >_>

My first thoughts, too. Obviously after. What the actual ****.

I really hope you're right. I mean, this is okay I guess for those who want it. But I would be pretty disappointed if it turned out to be an official by Eidos. For the very reason you stated. This, is definitely too far IMO if they did.

My apologies. I hope I didn't offend anyone by posting this here.

I've seen that statue a few times now.

The sad thing is... It's a well-made statue. It'd be perfect if Lara had clothes.

Oh, no no, not offended, I was just a little disturbed :o I never liked the notion of Lara as a sex symbol (as others seem to agree), and avoided the sexualised renders like the plague. This was just really extreme.

I remember that statue traumatised me as a child. It looks like an abomination, conveniently torn clothing or not. ;)

We're almost in the fourth month of the year already... Another four months and there will be so much media of the game which will be just round the corner :)

I think that statue is so weird because Lara looks so manly with lots of muscles poised for action, and yet she's highly sexualized. :ponder:
