Rise of the Tomb Raider Play Arts Kai Figure

 
Check out this exquisite Rise of the Tomb Raider Play Arts Kai figure! The quality looks astounding and a step up from the Reboot figure. Hopefully that's the case considering the $139.99 price tag! This baby releases April 30th, 2016.
 
"Lara Croft is in pursuit of the truth, and she will embark on adventures in ruins across the world to find it.

This legendary heroine has gained huge popularity, becoming influential across various media, transcending the niche of video game protagonist. Modeled on her appearance in her newest journey in “RISE OF THE TOMB RAIDER,” she is rendered once more as an action figure!

We aimed for a realistic construction in this figure, so of course we have honored the fine details, such as her jacket and other clothing, and her determined facial expression. Her hair, pulled up into a ponytail, is articulated by an orbital joint, making it possible to stage her in the dynamic poses characteristic of this fearless explorer.

The rugged finish on this figure, along with her many iconic accessories, such as her climbing axe, bow and arrows, and more, allow memorable scenes from the game to be recreated faithfully.

Accessories include bow, arrows, knife, handgun, pickaxe and exchangeable hands

Figures includes display stand."

Figure Size: Approx. W 3” x D 4” x H 10.4”

Baba Yaga: The Temple of the Witch

 
Are you ready to enter the Wicked Vale? Baba Yaga: The Temple of the Witch releases tomorrow, January 26th, for Xbox One and Xbox 360.
 
I am so excited for this DLC! I remember reading the story of Baba Yaga as a child. I loved 'Halloween themed' books. I can't wait to see how the developers incorporated the tale into Lara's world.
 
"Deep in the wilds of Siberia lies a forest that no man will enter, where a Soviet expedition vanished without a trace. Lara enters the Wicked Vale in search of a missing man, but she finds a nightmare that defies explanation. Is the witch, Baba Yaga, haunting the forest? Or is there more to the myth? Featuring three hours of new gameplay, Lara will face new adversaries, explore a new tomb, solve a decades old mystery, and face off against an ancient evil. Includes a new outfit, and a new bow."
 
The Temple of the Witch is included as part of the Season Pass, or available individually for $9.99.
