It's a video.
Thank you so much for that vid, Shandroid. I couldn't make up my mind if I liked her as Lara or not, but this definately changed my mind. She's got my vote. I think she might be the first and only Lara model to actually do all Lara's moves that she does in the game.
Those first pics of her wasn't very flattering for some reason, so I took some stills from the video (sorry if they're a bit blurry):

Monique, I didn't think the first post's pic was very flattering either. Thank you for posting those stills, hopefully others will see that she is a fine choice. :)

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

I saw this in the Levelbase Tribune (written by Cuahiano Small)[/quote]

Just hold it right there, while I change lenses...

She is good looking, but there's something missing, I think it's something AJ had, maybe the whole attitude.

That's it - this girl doesn't look threatining enough - it's all too "play acting".

i agree and i also think shes too buffed up. lara is the athletic type and she has the muscle theres no doubt but shes far skinnier than that chick is.

of course im prob just being picky as usuall ;P

I think the body is perfect for lara ^_^ I think that's the most realistic body type there could be, she's great!

well we all have our oppinions i guess, but prob just because eidos chose her thats why i dont like her.

cause i hate anything eidos does these days since they suck now. It was core design who were the real genius's

Yeah - this girl is too much show - good photo info, but I wonder how well she can shoot, ride a motorcycle, hand to hand combat...

haha well im sure shes better than angelina anyway.

speakin of that the films wernt good at all. although i do like the two actors ian glen and ciaran hinds they were the only ones that made the two films good.

but yeah i dont pay too much attention to the world of tomb raider these days from models to the games to the films cause its gone to hell and back anyways ;]

Hey - I'm playing Time Odyssey too - just started Dayport Sunset.

Made it thru the Museam with the stealth award or whatever, and the No Man's Land. Also, found the way to that glass lined overpass, and shot all the glass out - :D

Yeah - I just played Legend again, may try Anniversary again, but got stuck trying one of the hard jumps.

The TR games are starting to follow all the other shooters - I like something that challenges my mind, and I can relax to...

yeah i forgot about the bonus level, it was really well done.

the thing i just dont like about the new TR's is lara's character, the voice actress sucks and her companions are complete twats and i dunno why they changed winston soo much too.

haha btw sorry to all the new gen TR fans in here. guess im just lettin out a bit of steam. but as for the model well i guess shes alright to model for the new gen TR lara but nothing like the "real" lara.

There'll never be a "real" Lara...

It's interesting how this all progressed:

First, there was Indy in the movies, then they made an Indy game. About the same time, they made a TR game, then they made a TR movie (full circle) !!!

AJ's whole life changed as a result of her TR movies, and it's all because of US - loyal TR fans... doesn't that make you feel good ???

AJ could still be out there with a vial of blood around her neck. Instead, she's doing wonderful things for the people of this little world we live on...

Oh well, back to Time Odyssey... see ya !!!
