Aviatrix Lara Croft (Flight Suit) Custom Action Figure

 
 
Custom #:52638  
Name:Aviatrix Lara Croft (Flight Suit)
Custom Type:Action Figure
Toy Series:Tomb Raider
Creator:JeddTheJedi  
Date Added:August 11, 2013
Base Figure:Stargate SG1 Vala Mal Doran
Height:6.00 inches
I picked up a Stargate Vala Mal Doran figure on clearance at Comic Con and thought she might make a pretty useful base figure. Pretty much the first thing that came to mind was the "Aviatrix" DLC skin for the 2013 Tomb Raider game. I wanted to make a figure based on Lara's default look in the game but was a little intimidated by the detail that would go into it, so I decided that the Aviatrix Lara would be good middle ground.

The head comes from a Resident Evil 5 Sheva Alomar, with completely re-sculpted hair (sculpted over twisty wire to get the ponytail). I dremelled off the earrings and repainted the skin tone. I decided to leave the headset on her, I didn't want to waste that nice detail by dremelling it off. I sculpted on the bandages, as well as her necklace. The holster is made from scratch, with a thin sheet of plastic and some twisty wires. The pistol is from the NECA Man or Machine Terminator figure. I also wrote "Croft" on the name tag, but it's hard to see and I don't think I did a great job with those tiny letters!

Thanks for taking a look and I hope you guys like this one.

Thanks for your comment! Several customisers on the realm have done really good versions of Reboot Lara. Check out those by christinacxxx, BDCdiesel, starkiller85jk, revoltechone and AW Custom Designs, as well as repaints of the Play Arts Kai Lara by zelu1984 and Eddiegrayce's Custom.

Good job recreating the outfit! You might have gone a touch overboard with the blood and all, but then again, so did the devs of the reboot...

Many thanks Al - I was wondering whether or not to go the full hog with the dirt and blood, but I guess that's part of the look of the new game and makes the figure more recognisable as being Lara from the game.
