New Lara Croft Barbie and Funko POP!

Mattel and Funko have both announced Tomb Raider-inspired toys for 2018. Mattel's Lara Croft Barbie has not yet been officially unveiled, but according to Cheryl's Dolls & Collectibles, the new Barbie will be modeled on Alicia Vikander's depiction of the character in the upcoming Tomb Raider film. It is part of the Barbie Signature line and will be released February 20 at a $39.95 US price point. Oddly, there's no mention of the doll on Mattel's website yet, but more information should be forthcoming.

Also, this week at Toy Fair in New York City, Funko revealed a second Lara Croft POP! figure, this time based on reboot Lara. The new POP!, shown below and on the Funko website, will be released in March and cost $9.99 US. Funko had previously released POP! and Rock Candy figures modeled on classic/Anniversary Lara.

UPDATE: The Lara Croft Barbie has now been listed on the Mattel site and is available on Amazon.com and Amazon UK.
