I'm glad Womb Raider has been acknowledged.
Its an important part of Lara's legacy and really helped define her as a person and what she was trying to do in the world.

In all seriousness though I can't believe that's even there.
I think its kind of degrading to even have that kinda thing there, not just because its porn. Not that it bothers me much, but if I was affectionately picking things to display that wouldn't be one of them.
They have many other things like magazines comparing Lara to models and treating her like a literal celebrity, just seems like something would have made more sense, one in particular comes to mind where they compared her to a specific model but I can't quite recall now...

I guess it shows some of the things the franchise has spawned though in all fairness.

One thing I have find interesting is how thoses adult parody movies used the TR LC 2001 aesthetic and not so much the games. That make me think the AJ movie helped cemented this image of Lara Croft being a sex icon to the non gamer even If the movie was more than that.
Honestly I think people focus so much on her sex appeal because she's a woman. There are numerous artists who have created the same things for characters like Leon and Dante, but no one really bats that much of an eye. But because Lara is a woman, everyone turns heads and focus on that. Same thing happened with over watch, everyone was losing their minds over a freaking statue pose.

The truth is while those people may only see what they want to see there is a lot more there with Lara Croft as we know. And eventually when people actually do get to know her they realize just how much depth and character she actually had.

Imo it's the media that mostly tries to focus on such things and it doesn't really matter what Lara does, the media will always try to find that angle. The solution is to continue what Lara has always done. Through her actions she has inspired many people who grew to love and understand her. Some might find this appeal to undermine the character, but I think the appeal works to her advantage and to the advantage of women.

Because with Lara's character there have been placed so many layers within that it forces people to look beyond what they see immediate and look at the character from within. She breaks many stereotypes with her appeal so while we do have clueless people like IGN, if they actually do spread a bit of time with the actual character Lara usually breaks through their mindset and shows a character that is and has always been well established.

So the Totaku figurine with classic Lara comes in December. Can we expect the Definitive Edition with 8 DLC at the end of this year?
I think it is still much time until December, which explains the silence at Gamescom. And the community manager in April month presented here green Lara with braid and dual pistol on her picture, maybe the Totaku figure is a clue for us.

Are we going to be forever stuck with Underworld Lara's backpack , boots , belt and holsters as far as anything "traditional-Lara" is concerned from now on ? I'm bored of them already .

Underworld's boots in particular give me PTSD .

I like it very much and I'm not bored wit her backpack. Temple Osiris or Underworld appearance is thumb up. I wish Underworld skin to Shadow.

I mean shake things up a bit , Underworld's "arsenal" and accessories were featured in 5 games already (Underworld , GoL , ToO , Go and Relic Run) in addition to the LC brand-based novel and set of comics , just change them they've overstayed their welcome .

I'm guessing they think she has the most updated version of the classic gear. I used to be bothered about this as well but I've grown fonder of it over time, though the excessive use of black could be toned down a tad.

I do want to see those boots gone through, like good god look at the size of those things lol I'd love for them to switch them for TR2013's/Rise's timberlands, love those boots.

How much is that Lara figure?? I hope not too expensive because she looks like those toys that come with cereal boxes.

They have this set up at Gamescom and there's no TR announcements??
Not sure if that's a blunder or someone put it there on purpose, either way it's hilarious.
