Mattel Announces Lara Croft Barbie Doll, Releasing in March

Lara Croft 2

Barbie's next look: Tomb Raider

Ahead of the Tomb Raider film reboot in March, a Lara Croft doll from Mattel will hit the store shelves soon with the preorders going live on February 19. There are a few accessories included with the Barbie, including her pick axe, journal, map, and more, as well as a certificate of authenticity. The Tomb Raider Barbie is now available for pre-order from the official website for $29.99. The movie was also reboot in 2015 where it was announced that Alicia Vikander would be playing the role of Tomb Raider.

Warner Bros. has launched Tomb Raider VR: Lara's Escape, a free VR experience that ties into the upcoming Tomb Raider film. The latter document seems to indicate that Mattel is hoping for the Lara Croft doll to end up a collector's item.

Tomb Raider blasts into theaters on March 16, 2018.

"Lara Croft is the fiercely independent daughter of an eccentric adventurer who vanished mysteriously".

"The doll also features a fully-articulated body, flawless for high-action poses". Suddenly, the stakes couldn't be higher for Lara, who-against the odds and armed with only her sharp mind, blind faith and inherently stubborn spirit-must learn to push herself beyond her limits as she journeys into the unknown.

"So, with "Tomb Raider", I had the chance to work on something that's very different from my previous work, but which has always been close to my heart: a big action and adventure film", she added.

The 29-year-old Swedish actress appeared on The Graham Norton Show recently where she recalled that looking at a female protagonist in a video game during her childhood left her feeling empowered. In this respect, it's refreshing to note that Mattel's take on Lara Croft is the younger version in keeping with the reboot treatment of the upcoming movie. "This is the beginning", detailed Vikander.
