Deep in the mountains, Lara Croft finds a crumbling Thai temple...
About this creation
One thing I'm surprised by on MOCpages so far - there's hardly any Tomb Raider. Plenty of Indy, Johnny Thunder everywhere, even Jake Raines (cheap Johnny Thunder copy) but no Lara. Simple answer? Build some, obviously.
So I did. This small temple is based on a Thai 'wat', and loosely resembles the ones from TR: Underworld.
I tried to get a proper crumbly, reclaimed-by-the-jungle look, so I deliberately (honest) missed out some wall pieces and stuck plants wherever there was a space.
Took a few tries to get the weird, curly brickwork look. Still not sure about it but I had coursework to do and it was late...
The main attraction, of course, is the leading lady - Miss Croft herself. The body print is actually blue electrical tape, drawn over with a CD marker - it comes off easily, it looks sort of plasticky and the colour matches quite well. Same idea for the legs.
Of course it wouldn't be Tomb Raider without some mercenaries and a billionaire bad guy to deal with, and the position is here filled by Lord Sebastian Fleming and his team of ex-military heavies.
Finally a tomb raider MOC worth mentioning, well done! I am a great fan of the games series. As I have nearly finished my Lara Minifig I might come up with a build myself. Your creation is very inspiring.
