My first figure of 2018, I was really looking forward to finally owning a Lara figure (lets face it, thats who it is! lol!) and though I am pleased with her kit and sculpt, what a disappointment the original body was! imo, a cheap k/o version of a DAMTOYS figure. So thinking ahead, I swapped the body for a TBL S21B, and it is such an improvement, though not a perfect colour match. Much happier with her now.

I’m just loving your new 1/6 scale Lara Croft figure a lot. I’m just loving all the different action poses that she’s in. Very well photographed Dal.

Great face sculpt, which looks fantastic on the TBLeague body! Slightly darker face makes sense, actually, from sun exposure and such.

Is the background the packaging from the original figure box? And are the outfit and accessories ones that came with the original fig? The outfit seems to fit the TBLeague body quite well.

It really is a great sculpt David. Yeah the background, clothes and weapons and such all came with the figure, the only thing I had to change were her boots as they had a different connection and wouldn't fit the phicen.

Looking at this again, I realize that this is a molded hair face sculpt, not rooted hair. I didn't really realize that before, and it's not very apparent except in that one close-up pic from the top of her head. Not bad at all for molded hair!

I was wondering how the head would look on a "suntan" body. But apparently the S21B is a suntan body. I suppose you could experiment with some Jiaou bodies, but that could get expensive very quickly, you probably would not find a closer color match, and the proportions of the S21B work really well with this head.

Is this fig still "complete" in the incarnation seen here, or have you since parted it out for use in other Agents? It's a nice-looking figure, but there are a lot of costume bits that would be tempting to try out on other figures.

Have you tried other heads on this body-costume combo? I'm thinking the CAT TOYS head might look pretty good, still offering a "Lara Croft" vibe, but with rooted hair.

Your posing skills have improved over the past 2-1/2 years since these photos were taken. Wink You have a much more developed eye for subtle details in positioning now. I would find it interesting if you were to revisit these images and re-shoot similar poses today.

It's funny you should mention it Dave, at the moment Lara has been shelved, as I am waiting to get a Jaiou body for her in one of the other colours, I believe dark is the option I would need. As for mixing and matching, I often do that, most of my agents looks are a mxture of several sets thrown together.
I would like to reshoot her once she gets her new body Very Happy

Coincidentally, two Jiaou bodies arrived today - one brown skin and one pale skin.

They are great colours and offer a bit more variety in colour.

The brown skin is a really good suntanned look, I'll get some pics on cheers
