Lara Croft is one of the most famous video game characters ever. She already has several movies, too including one brand new. And this is a great opportunity for Mattel to finally add a Lara Croft Barbie doll to the line up.
The official name is Barbie Tomb Raider doll, IGN reports. The doll is based on Alicia Vikander’s portrayal of Lara Croft in the new movie.
It’s the kickoff of the toys which are based on the new movie. The movie is rebooting the Tomb Raider movie franchise and there’s high hopes for it.
Mattel’s Barbie Tomb Raider doll comes with several accessories in the package. Among them are a map, axe, journal. There’s even a doll stand and a Certificate of Authenticity.
So, it’s a fully playable doll, but also functions as a classic display action figure. The price though is quite far from the display action figures – $29.99 and the presale is underway.
The reboot of the Tomb Raider movie franchise will debut in cinemas on March 16th, 2018. Tomb Rider seems to be in line with the video game reboot from 2013 and its sequel Rise of the Tomb Raider which launched on Xbox One in 2015, and a year later on PS4.
There’s quite a lot of interest for the movie as Lara Croft is one of the most beloved game characters of all time. So, be prepared for lots of toys for and about the movie.
