That's a good way to put it! I wonder how they managed to mess up her face so much after the other statues all had really good faces.

I wonder why they didn't just use the original in-game model, anyway. That's something that's being done a lot nowadays, especially with figures that are based on digital characters. When Thinkway Toys made the Toy Story Signature Collection toys, they got digital data from Pixar that they used for designing the figures. Probably saves a lot of time and ensures that the figures look exactly like the original characters. And considering that the original AoD Lara in-game model looks pretty good, GamingHeads could've done something similar.

I'm not too big a fan of the design to be honest. I can't really put a finger on what throws me off, though. Maybe I'm just too fixed on AoD Lara's ingame model (it's still my favourite), so I'm too nitpicky.

Her face is slightly off.. not sure what it is. I prefer her with sunglasses on.. it hides whatever it is that doesn’t feel like her in game model.

I think her legs are bit too slender, especially her thighs. Plump them up just a tiny bit and I think she would be perfect.

Yeah something is off with this one compared to the TR1/3 statues which looked consistent. I think the pose could be better too. I probably won't get this one and just stick with the TR1/3 ones.

I don’t like the way this statue looks. Something about it looks a bit…..off.

Yeah I don't expect this to sell very well.

I think it's funny, the quality of collectables seems to be diminishing while the price continues rising. Odd, and very insulting.

Wasn’t one of the statues changed before because the fans didn’t like it? They ended up fixing it and making it perfect but I can’t remember which one it was.

They changed the AOD one because the original design was the exact same as the 2003 statue. People were not happy to get a second statue just like the 2003 one and honestly I understand haha

Anyway I'm still bitter AOD won the poll over Chronicles. We never had a high quality product of Lara in her iconic catsuit and that's a shame...
