It is meant to be cartoony, their mini epics are meant to have overdrawn features...its the gimmick of that line.

I like it.

Come on, this has to be the ugliest version of Lara Croft we've ever had.

Who even signs off on these awful things?

The boots being the only thing with such exaggerated proportions makes them look so out of place

It reminds me a little of Missi Pyle in Dodgeball...

I'm getting more of a Miss Trunchbull from Matilda:

Right?! It looks ridiculous honestly! As someone who loves the Mini Epics line from Weta, I have to say I am very disappointed...

Aren't we all used to crappy Lara statues at this point?
But something about the facial expression rubs me the wrong way.. so damn smug

The boots are too big and the face is...off, but we've seen worse in this franchise.

Why is it so hard to get it right

It seems like they are trying to turn Lara from the badass bigger than life character she once stood for into this average, generic, frumpy design that's been trending in many other game franchises.

I'm sorry, but enough is enough. Netflix is cancelling a lot of their programs because people are tired of the wokeness, even Cartoon Network is re-rebooting the Powerpuff girls and Involving the original creator this time because people did not watch that woke reboot they put out back in 2016.

Media is shifting away from the average, frumpy, sort of androgynous look for women because women have been complaining about it.

It's about damn time they start doing the same thing for TR. Enough with the frumpy, sloppy looking outfits that aren't form fitting and treat Lara Croft like an actual person who doesn't walk out the door like that because even your average American joe knows to have a bit of decency and comfort when going outside.

The face makes no sense at all, it's like what even.

She looks like a dude her body and face are very manly. Looks like she has sideburns/mutton chops. I miss feminine lara. I hope they will tweak her face. I've wanted a mini epic or her for a while but this one doesn't look like her at all.
