Default Lara Croft Star on Derby's Walk of Fame

As some of you may have seen online, Lara Croft received her very own star on the #MadeinDerby walk of fame. I had some involvement with the organisation and with the press embargo it was difficult not to say anything.

Heather Stevens unveiled the star with Nathan McCree and Gavin Rummery being our CORE DESIGN representatives. We love Lara in Derby and this is the first of many things to come! Note that all plaques feature Lara on the left side.

I don't know, I'm too cynical. To me this seems like something that's trying to use Lara Croft's established reputation to boost Derby's, not the other way around. Yes, I know Derby's older, but when was the last time anyone not from around thereabouts has thought about that place?

I still remember when Lara Croft got a star on the "Walk of Game". That got a mention on TombraiderChronicles.com as well ( https://www.tombraiderchronicles.com/headlines2639.html ), and was probably in this forum. But I did visit that thing during the brief period where it existed, and it was just an (ultimately failed) attempt to get people into a mall with delusions of grandeur.

This is amazing. I am a tad dismayed that the official accounts didn't tweet about this to bring more attention to it though

This is amazing! Proud of our queen.

What I don't understand though is why the official TR account is staying silent over this achievement too. I was seriously expecting a post from them.

Edit: oh I'm glad I'm not the only one who pointed this out

The offical Tomb Raider account has been abandoned. I don't think they have anyone at all working with that account. It used to be the community manager, but given the fact that they seem to have moved over to the Avengers project completely I don't think we will see any information from that account coming out anytime soon. That account is dead.
