Lara Croft Custom Action Figure

 
 
Custom #:42640  
Name:Lara Croft
Custom Type:Action Figure
Toy Series:Tomb Raider
Creator:JeddTheJedi  
Date Added:September 10, 2012
Base Figure:LCBH Ann O'Brien
Height:7.00 inches
I've seen several customisers on the Realm use LCBH Ann O'Brien as a Lara Croft base figure. I actually wanted to make one more than a a year ago, and then royally screwed everything up, ruining three perfectly fine figures in the process.

When I saw another LCBH Ann O'Brien in the bargain bin at a convention, I took it as a sign!

-Main thing was shaving down her thighs and legs to make them more proportionate, because they do bulge a fair bit.
-Repositioned the belt, it's too high up.
-Backpack made from the backpack included in the Playmates TR movie toys, with Survival Suit Bruce Wayne webbing for the straps.
-The hair was interesting. Most of it is from DCUC Kamandi, chopped off appropriately and cut to taper towards a ponytail. The ponytail was cut off another Playmates Tomb Raider, and blended together
-The Ann O'Brien face - I really do not like it. Went in with the dremel and adjusted the nose; it was originally very awkward and inelegant. Will also repaint the eyes and eyebrows so she looks less aloof.
-Functioning holsters from a Playmates TR figure
-Pouch on the back of belt (not visible in these photographs) from an RE5 Sheva Alomar
-Twisty ties for shorts detail.
-Pistols from a Playmates TR figure, and rifle from an M2 toys Trinity figure

Thanks for looking!

UPDATED with some new paint work, and general cleanup on the eyes and face paints.

2nd update with new paint

That's a LOT of modifications to the Ann figure to make her into Lara. That's impressive. I really like the proportions of her.

Thank you very much! The Ann O'Brien figure seems to work for Lara, but I had to modify it very heavily. I'm glad you think she looks okay!
