'Lara Croft And The Temple Of Osiris' Collectible Gaming Heads Figure Preorders Begin Today
For fans who prefer their Lara Croft a little more Osiris and a little less Tomb Raider will be happy to learn that premiere collectibles creator Gaming Heads are now taking pre-orders for a Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris figure.
Inspired by the very satisfying and fun co-op action digital download, in which players have to work together to solve some ancient mysteries and shoot even more ancient bad guys, the new statue will be a fine juxtaposition to the 2013 Tomb Raider reboot figure. A ying to that one's gritty yang.
From the official website, "This dynamic and exciting statue of Lara Croft features her caught in action, leaping from a rock firing her dual-pistols straight ahead. She's wearing her famous turquoise tank-top and cargo shorts, and her hair back in a long ponytail. The remains of an Ancient Egyptian relic are emerging from the sand behind her, and hieroglyphics line the rim of the base."
Like many of the other Gaming Head statues from over the years, Lara Croft stands 18" from the base to the top and is cast from polystone, with a handpainted base number for that touch of uniqueness. The design and color were all done by Kaushik Manna.
Only 1000 of the standard edition figure will be created for release during Q1 of 2016 and will retail for $339.99. A deluxe edition - limited to 500 pieces worldwide - also includes the titular Staff of Osiris strapped to Lara's back and retails for $359.99.
