New official Lara Croft model revealed!

Post by Monique » 18 Aug 2008 14:34

Hi guys, yesterday Eidos anounced their new Lara Croft model to promote Underworld. Her name is Alison Carroll and apparently she's a former gymnast. She will go for SAS training and a crash course in world archeology before she starts to promote and greet the hordes of fans.
What are your thoughts? (You can also view additional pics here)

I thought this was revealed last week? Either way, she's very hot, very pretty, great body. There's something missing as far as Lara goes, but I like her :)

I am astonished by the poor quality of the photos - To me they look as, well maybe made at the casting, not too much care for detail and all, just to get an idea who might be good for the job as Lara Model.

The woman herself, I really like the impression of physical strength she gives me. Her 'broad' and strong shoulders and upper arms, I can easily imagine her training Acrobatics and Fight.

:-o TRU gameplay footage . Lara's new handstand. :jump:

Thou shall not mess with Lara's resting animation. NEVER. EVER!

I think that's exactly what it is, she still has to go for SAS training and all that stuff before she gets to promote :D

I couldn't agree more Snork! When I look at the previous Lara models, most of them were very skinny and not athletic at all, (with the exception of Rhona Mitra) they were just there to look pretty. I remember seeing a video clip of Lara Weller doing a photo shoot and she was running around boulders looking so painfully girly, like she's afraid to break a nail or something. :lol:
I think I like this new Lara model... she's not really a model, more of the "new Lara athlete" .. so to speak :D
This girl's gonna have people on fire with her acrobatics

Oh lord! Sorry to say it but she looks like a 14 year old Chav.. All that's missing is the Burberry backpack :| Nope, this is not Lara and Eidos could certainly have done better than that :snobby:

hmm,you know Linden ? I haven't been able to get a specific definition to what a chav is. I guess you have to live in the UK or the US to know them. But basically, they're those boys with their caps worn backword, baggy clothes and chains and stuff around their necks and arms, and sporting a ghetto accent with afew B words, F words and S words thrown in here and there.

Btw, isn't there an option for "I don't care about TR models ?", cause that would be my choice. I'm going to buy the game, not take her on a one night stand. :roll: but I guess thats promotion.

Give this a look and anyone unsure about Allison might change their mind. She is one of the first models that I think just might be able to DO what Lara does.

It's a video.

She looks like the new CD Lara, not the old Core Lara.
