Hand-Painted Lara Croft Statue: Die-Hard Fans Can Pre-Order

Are you a hardcore Lara Croft fan? Or at least a die-hard fan of the iconic franchise?

Then you might be interested in forking over a serious chunk of change to purchase the new Lara Croft statue made by Gaming Heads. The model should be available in the second quarter of 2014, and you can pre-order it now.

But are you willing to spend $340 on it? It really is pretty, if that helps: It's a 20-inch, hand-painted statue made from polystone resin, and the artist utilized assets taken directly from the Tomb Raider reboot. The model comes with her trademark bow as well as a combat shotgun, and there will be a numbered base and a certificate of authenticity. It's pricey but remember, they're only making 500 of these bad boys, so it'll definitely be a collector's item someday.

Also, don't forget that the Definitive Edition of the game will release for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on January 28, 2014. And it'll feature a whole host of graphical upgrades.

There's just no way I could explain that to a potential girlfriend, she would run.

Mmmhmm many different girls but if I loved Tomb Raider to death I could not justify this one to mine as much as she knows gaming is forever a part of my being...

I don't see the problem. I know plenty of girls that wouldn't mind, and *gasp* some that have even played the game.

My wife would roll her eyes, but she'd get it. If there was any objection it would be about how much money I spent on it. Which is fair, I guess.

The hope is always to get a woman who is okay with or loves your gaming hobby, but that's not always an option. I think in general statue collectors are hated on, not that that's okay or anything.

id love to get one of these things, but 340 bucks!?
seriously!?
i remember the EB expo last year, when M$ finished their halo presentation they had the master chief suit on sale for TWENTY GRAND!
a brand new car, or a suit for a fictional game character.
hmmmmmm hardest decision ive ever had to make!
and i thought that was ridcliously priced, a friend of mine showed me this website the other day which sells movie props.
iorn man 3s suit, one they actually used in the movie, a cool FIFTY grand!
yea, it was used in the movie, but seriously!?
as i always say, some people have more money than brains...........

My wife tries to sell my statue collection on ebay and craigslist. I got a call from a guy asking when we can meet to check out the statues. I was WTF??

I'm a big collector of video games statues, so far i have bought all the special/ collector editions of games that came with statues. I will be getting this Tomb Raider statue. This is probably the best looking one I've seen so far.
