Finally, here's the Flirty Girl Collectibles 1/6 scale Angelina Jolie as Lara Croft (with Phicen Limited Large Bust Tan Skin Seamless Female Body) complete with her Dark Brown Faux Leather jacket and Faux Leather backpack. That completes the look of the Flirty Girl Collectibles FCS2012-2 1/6th Scale Female Character Set which I first reviewed HERE :) The previous posts and reviews had only shown Lara Croft in the character's classic costume of a turquoise sleeveless tank top, light brown shorts, utility belt with holsters on either side for her two pistols, calf-high boots, and long white socks. Now I've added the 1/6 scale Dark Brown Faux Leather jacket and Faux Leather backpack that came with this Flirty Girl set.
I've also added what I felt was a most appropriate diorama display base with this 1/6 scale Lara Croft 12-inch female action figure. Being a tomb raider, you'll most likely find Lara Croft in jungles looking for lost ancient civilizations whose treasures she can recover rather than in an urban setting / concrete jungle. The jungle themed display base with a puddle of "water" in the center is borrowed from Hot Toys MMS90 Movie Masterpiece Series 1/6 scale 14-inch Predator set - reviewed earlier HERE.

I don't particularly like what Flirty Girl Collectibles did with the brown faux leather jacket :( They have weathered it so much that it looks really roughed out and worn. The 1/6 scale jacket looks so over used that it doesn't seem to fit in with the rest of her outfit which is rather clean and new.
1/6 scale Lara Croft (Angelina Jolie) is holding her custom .45 caliber SAFARI MATCHMASTER semi automatic pistols in her hands. The pistols were used by Angelina Jolie in the 2008 film "Wanted". So this is a bit like two figures in one haha
I think the Hot Toys Predator diorama display base works very well with this 1/6 scale Lara Croft 12-inch female action figure for that extra look of figure and display base
Here's how the Flirty Girl Collectibles 1/6 scale Faux Leather Backpack looks on the 12-inch female figure. The bag is nice and all but I always felt that her backpack is just too small to be of any practical use. Where does she keep all the stuff she needs when she goes tomb raiding? She doesn't even seem to have any water bottle on her.

As you can see from the close-up views and pictures of the Flirty Girl Collectibles 1/6 scale brown faux leather jacket, there's just too much weathering done. It really looks very worn out and weathered (too much me thinks), like it's going to tear or disintegrate at any moment.
You can also see more pictures of the Flirty Girl Collectibles 1/6 scale Angelina Jolie as Lara Croft head sculpt from different angles and sides.
To me, this is one of the better head sculpts of Angelina Jolie by far and the resemblance to the actress is there. You can see the likeness of the head sculpt to the actress who played Lara Croft on the big screen not once but twice.
