The Alicia Vikander celebrity doll portrays her at 29 years old as the character Lara Croft in the 2018 Warner Bros and MGM released action adventure film Tomb Raider movie based on the 2013 video game of the same name. The Black Label Barbie Signature doll was released by Mattel at the retail price of $29.95 on February 19, 2018. The doll was designed by Bill Greening.
Alicia Vikander is a Swedish actress, who won a supporting actress Oscar for The Danish Girl in 2015. She also starred in Jason Bourne in 2016 and The Green Knight in 2021. Viklander had agreed to star in a sequel to Tomb Raider (working title of Tomb Raider: Obsidian) and it was scripted and ready to go, despite an unfortunately very long covid-19 delay. In July 2022, MGM’s rights expired and the Tomb Raider franchise reverted back to the gaming enterprise Crystal Dynamics. Viklander is no longer involved.
Lara Croft is the fiercely independent daughter of an eccentric adventurer who vanished mysteriously. Leaving everything she knows behind, she embarks on a journey to his last know destination: a fabled tomb on a mythical island. Lara ventures into the unknown armed with only her sharp mind, blind faith and stubborn spirit. She must push herself beyond her limits. Can she survive this perilous adventure, and earn the title of TOMB RAID
The Vikander celebrity doll comes wearing the Lara Croft signature sleeveless knit tank top and military green pocketed pants. The pants are decorated with belt loops and an attached brown cloth belt and a gold plastic buckle. The pants have a Velcro closure in the back and can be removed although quite tight fitting. On the feet are easily removed back split brown plastic boots. Around the dolls right arm and left leg are off white cotton cloth knotted bandages.
The hair is medium brown parted off centered and tied back in a hefty off centered left-sided pony tail. Pink lips and traditionally painted brown eyes.
The doll is articulated at the neck (slight up and down and turns), shoulders (partial ball joint), elbows, wrists (hands come off and joint rotates and bends), hips (ball joints, doll does front to back splits but not side to side), and knees (bend greater than 90 degrees). Leg movement is somewhat restricted by tight pants.
Accessories include a paper map, a brown plastic journal, a gray and red plastic climbing axe, black base with clear length doll stand, and an official Mattel Certificate of Authenticity.
