Exploring the Rise of the Tomb Raider Collector’s Edition StatueNovember 15, 2015
A lavish high-end assemblage conceived with the most devoted Lara Croft enthusiasts in mind, the Rise of the Tomb Raider Collector’s Edition (newly available for Microsoft’s Xbox One) is a must-have for gamers looking to celebrate the intrepid explorer’s latest console adventure. While the assortment of game-inspired items is bound to find favor with most Tomb Raider devotees, it’s the statue at the set’s core that’s apt to be the real draw.
Emphasizing physical extras rather than digital bonus content, the Rise of the Tomb Raider Collector’s Edition arrives in a specially designed box (resembling a wooden packing crate) filled with a hard copy of the game, collectible metal disc case, and meticulously crafted replicas of Lara’s jade necklace and leatherbound journal. Nonetheless, the main attraction is a roughly 12.5-inch tall statue which portrays the Tomb Raider in the midst of exploration with a chemical light stick and one of her signature climbing axes at the ready. The collectible figure’s detailed sculpt and finish faithfully capture Lara’s on-screen likeness and ultimately yield a piece that is both authentic and suitably shelf-worthy for long-time fans of the fearless heroine’s exploits.
Released by Square Enix, the Rise of the Tomb Raider Collector’s Edition began shipping November 10th for Xbox One at the manufacturer’s suggested retail price of $149.99 USD.
