30-Day Tomb Raider Challenge Day 26: Objects of Desire

Today we're expanding on last year's challenge topic about Tomb Raider collections. For those who do collect TR merchandise or plan to start, what is your most prized Tomb Raider collectible, and what is the item item you most covet? (If it's not something that's actually being made, what would you like to see?)

Thanks to Lorna for today's question.

  1. I just bought 10 packs of Tomb Raider collectible cards on eBay! They're pretty awesome and fun to collect :)

  2. I get the Dalek reference! :D

    I would love to get my hands on a GoL arcade unit. I know. Fat chance, huh! I'd also be interested in getting an action figure or two.

    As for something they don't have? I'd love to see a custom Tomb Raider car! EPIC made one for their Gears of War franchise, and I think some car company just made a Walking Dead car (everything you'd need to survive the Zombie Apocalypse). Maybe the Tomb Raider car could be a fancy jeep with a horn that makes that sound from the Core games when something really terrifying is happening (usually boulders). And a built-in GPS could be Lara's voice. Everything topped with an AoD bobble-head on the dash. ;)

  3. I have the TR card game. I wouldn't say I collected it exactly. Bought it, played it, got bored with it.

  4. Hmm...Maybe My Tomb Raider 1 'Complete Guide Book.':)My Dad got it when he kept raging at it! I still have it to this day,and still use it aswell! :')

  5. I'd love to see fully functional arcade cabinets made of all the games. You plug in a quarter for the old games and fifty cents for the newer ones. Of course, they wouldn't be complete without the requisite cigarette burns on the dash.

  6. I'd also like copies of the strategy books for the original games, just a piece of my very frustrated childhood, haha.

  7. as many figurines of lara i can find

  8. My TR prize posession is a Lara Croft windbreaker, given to me by a former roommate as a graduation gift. He bought it at the Sony Metreon in San Francisco. If I can find a pic I'll post.

  9. I'm just a game and book collector, but my prized possession has to be the comic called The Beginning, which I got for my birthday and started my Tom Raider collection.
