There's something about this small scene I love so much. The fact that she's sneaking into a boat knowing she can easily get killed but proceeds to sleep, or her glowing dark skin that makes her look amazonian, or how she looks like a fully armed mercenary without all the heavy equipment and attire...but i just love this scene lol.

Is there any news of the 20th Anniversary statue collection by Gaming Heads?

Nope. The ToO figure has only just been shipped, I think, so could be a while.

Indeed. It's a Top Cow cover art from the first issue of Tomb Raider Journeys. It's made by the talented Adam Hughes.

And they (the artists) said in the 20th Anni book that their plan was to never over-sexualize Lara on the covers and use that as a selling tactic...oh well

Maybe this is their way of desexualizing Lara...

Sexualisation as a marketing tactic will always be used as long as it works, and it still does despite the backlash against it in recent years.

The fact is, people like the sexy, and it's not just men it's women too. The first thing you notice about other people is the way they look. If the first thing you notice about a magazine cover, a commercial for a TV show, or a video game for that matter, is that there's sexy people (men too, not just women) in it, it is more likely to grab your attention.

I'm not saying sex is the only motivation for paying attention, of course most people do want a good story and quality content, but it's that first thing you notice about something and it draws you in. Look, a hot stud with abs and a nice beard, or a curvy woman with DD boobs. It grabs attention so well and that's why it works.

The thing is, Lara was always sexualized. I remember seeing images like this back when I was in middle school.







As for the 20th anniversary statues, Gaming Heads has said in their collective FB group that they were not allowed to reveal anything till Square approved the prototypes.
