High-end collectibles and replicas manufacturer Gaming Heads is now accepting pre-orders for their latest limited edition Lara Croft statue, which will be available in Q1 2016 and on offer for $339.99 a piece.
Modelled after the Lara Croft seen in Temple of Osiris, this awesome 1/4 scale polystone resin statue was crafted by 3D modeller and sculptor Kaushik Manna and will be limited to just 1000 pieces worldwide.
World-renowned archaeologist Lara Croft set off on an expedition to Egypt to reclaim the lost Staff of Osiris. However, she was not alone in her pursuit, as fellow treasure hunter and rival Carter Bell was also looking for the staff. Determined to claim the prize for himself, Carter hastily drew the Staff from its resting place, unleashing a curse upon himself and Lara. In order to survive, Lara had to work with Carter to avoid the wrath of Set, God of the Underworld, and escape from the Temple with the Staff in-hand.
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. From the base to the top of Lara’s head, the statue measures 18 inches tall, and is cast from polystone resin with skillfully hand-crafted details.
The statue includes deluxe, full-color packaging, a hand numbered base, and a validation card which allows you to purchase the same model number in future releases in the Tomb Raider collection.

If this statue isn’t exclusive enough for you, Gaming Heads is also selling an “Exclusive Edition” for $359.99 a piece. The “Exclusive Edition” will be limited to just 500 pieces worldwide and will include the Staff of Osiris, which can be attached to Lara’s backpack.
Although steep by most people’s standards (including my own), this beautiful statue would be an excellent addition to any Tomb Raider fan’s collection. Head on over to Gaming Heads’ website to pre-order your statue or simply ogle some more photos of this breathtaking work of art!
