Latest Lara Croft news from superfan ToyGirl

If you made it to any of the big conventions this summer, you had a chance to purchase the giant limited edition Lara Croft figure released by Tonner. This 17” tall British beauty model was based on the Tomb Raider Legend video game (which I have just recently finished playing and can't wait to sink my claws into the upcoming Underworld video game this November).
The Tonner figure carried a hefty price tag at $125, but managed to completely sell out and is only available now on the secondary markets. If you can lay your hands on one, you now have a piece of my heart.

As for upcoming Lara releases, Sideshow Collectibles has a 12" arctic outfit Lara Croft action figure coming out this fall that you can pre-order now for $79.99.

In other Tomb Raider news, the new official Lara Croft model was announced this week.
The winner (pictured above) is the lovely Alison Carroll. But watch out -- this gymnast is perfectly capable of kicking your butt (I want her job).
