I've Never Seen Such A Filthy Lara Croft Statue

Look, Gaming Heads, I know you're all excited about introducing the new Tomb Raider line to the public, but who is going to buy a $US340 statue that's all covered in dirt, bruises and blood? Show a little self respect, dammit.

I mean, it's not like you missed the dirt and blood and such. This is a 1/4 scale figure — that's 20 inches tall from the base. Surely someone noticed the hero of the latest iteration of the long-running action-adventure series looked as if she'd just been on a long-running action-adventure.

Is that fresh blood on her shirt? Who the hell modelled for this? Is she ok? Did she get medical attention?

Look, Gaming Heads. Now I am worried. That's not how these mailings and press releases are supposed to make people feel. The goal is to make people want to purchase one of the 1,000 piece run of Lara Croft Survivor statues for $US319.99, or maybe even drop an extra $US20 on the exclusive version, which comes with a combat shotgun and is limited to only 500 pieces.

Instead, I just want to go check on my loved ones, and make sure they are safe and clean.

    Is it just me, or do the colours look off, like they haven't added enough layers to stop the base coat from showing through or something? Especially the skin tones. While I like the general concept, it feels a bit unfinished.

      Yeah I agree paint looks a bit thin or something.
      Cool statue though.

    Better looking than the kai arts one. But yes, the colours are a little off.
