New from Phicen: LAURA (inspired by Lara Croft)

Coming soon from Phicen: a 1/6 Scale Deluxe Collector Figure "LAURA" with Large Breast Seamless Body and 33 Points of Articulation, height: 29.50cm. LAURA is obviously inspired by Lara Croft from the 1996 video game "Tomb Raider" and portrayed in two feature films by Academy Award-winning actress Angelina Jolie, "Lara Croft: Tomb Raider" in 2001 and "Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life" in 2003.

She comes with her trademark outfit of Sport shorts, Sport vest, Belt, Knapsack, grenades, left and right leg holsters, socks and Boots

Weapons include: Two Uzi sub-machine gun with Two clips of Uzi sub-machine gun, Two USP HK pistols with Two pistol clips, Clip case for waist and Clip case for leg

Also comes with One DV camcorder and One Claw-gun

Two pairs replaceable hands and a figure display stand are also included

Other than Hot Toys, all these other companies just can't seem to get the female head sculpt right. Granted they all have two eyes, a nose and a mouth but somehow, aside from Hot Toys which produces realistic 1:6 headsculpts that resemble actresses, most of the other manufacturers have fallen short in this area. Why can't the head sculpt look something like the Lara Croft in the picture below?

I'd also posted an entry on an earlier released 1/6 scale Lara Croft 12-inch figure (click on the picture below to see the post)

Legs are too thin. It's a Barbie toy, not a collectible item.
