Weta Workshop's new Lara Croft statue looks great

More pics on the site. It costs just $1,499.00. :D

I really like how that statue looks and the face reminds me of the new Lara. I wasn't sure if I wanted to see the classic Lara design in games anymore but this changed my mind. I hope she will look close to that in the next game. What you guys think?

That statue looks great. I really wouldn’t mind seeing that iconic outfit come back in the next installment of TR if there is one, but I highly doubt we will see it unfortunately for the obvious reasons. Even Fortnite out of all games is using that old school outfit to my knowledge and that should say something in itself.

I don't even understand the desire to change her outfit; at this point it is basically the equivalent of a superhero costume, it is just as much a part of her if not even more so. I barely remember what her face was suppose to look in the old games due to low polygons, so her old outfit is basically the only thing that defined her appearance.

Agreed. I read and heard something about they felt that the shorts were too sexual or something stupid like that, so that’s why they wanted to change her outfit. What dark times are we living in when shorts are considered too risqué in a hot environment? I don’t necessarily mind that they gave Lara a new look, but the older outfit should at least be an option to use imo because it’s associated with her.

Fortnite has the reboot costume. You have to unlock the original costume after you earn the first with the Battlepass.

Before I ask my brain for an opinion:

what is the socially acceptable, woke opinion on this? Am I allowed to like this?
We have a thread dedicated to great butts in videogames.

If you have to ask that out loud, you're probably almost close to the point of no return.

So just like it and not give a damn?

That looks amazing. It's like the perfect form of a "realistic" Lara while sticking to the OG look and style. I really dig it.

Man, I'd love to see them do a proper remake of the original game. That'd be so good!

Details & textures are a great but I don't really like this design of Lara. It's leaning more towards realism.
I like this comic book heroine style design more. I think it was a limited edition. Video
The oufit looks great in that. They will most likely use realistic graphics if they bring the classic design back.

Weta also released modern Lara statue few years ago:

Look at all the fuckin comments man 🤦🏽‍♂️There’s a massive thirst for this styled Lara. Crystal Dynamic need to just get a grip and just suit her up in this outfit. I’m talking colour pallet and clothe styling. We’ve come full circle. Everyone went through their reboot, gritty, realistic phase - time for Crystal to put some pop back in to the character. The colours stand out. The iconography is timeless and beyond iconic. No point them pushing this style of Lara in to Fortnite and statues and other branding if she isn’t going to be recognised like this in the games. This look clearly generates more buzz.
