Lara Croft’s Ice Axe prop replica Tomb Raider 2013

Lara Croft, one of the best female gaming characters

I’ll preface this by saying I LOVE the “Tomb Raider” franchise, I LOVE “Lara Croft”, I have bought every game released since it appeared on both SEGA Saturn and PS1 (I owned it on both). I ‘studied’ Lara Croft at university level, I own all the figures, films etc. I am – you may say – a true “Tomb Raider” fangirl.

As props go there isn’t a whole lot that is iconic when it comes to Lara Croft, other than her clothing, belt and pistols. Sure there are other Lara Croft prop replica’s you could do, First Aid Kit, various ‘treasures’, backpack, but in the new game there is only one true iconic prop, Lara’s Ice Axe.

I did a little replica of Lara’s necklace, but the ice axe is really where it’s at, this is the result.

If you can’t already guess this is all mdf, nuts and bolts aside. It was a pretty time-consuming build due to all the edges and the hand-painting. Still it worked out great and was well worth the time. If you want to commission one, let me know.

Hope you’ve liked this latest prop replica build.

Till next time people… what do we say?! ….

    1. I did know that yeah, but the DMM is actually slightly different when you look at it, also here it retails for around $350, needless to say without all the weathering of the game 🙂

  1. I agree, it is quite expensive but the only difference is in absence of that hole in the middle. They probably omited it for design purpose. And adding patina is pretty easy, just climb several crags and it is done 🙂

  2. id love to have one of these!! i just beat the new game and im def cos playing as laura for the next con in florida!! if you can give me a price that would be great!!

    1. Aww thanks matey. This was pretty much the iconic prop of the game, she’s have been screwed without it.

    1. I’m pretty busy right now, but email me with your date needed by and other details and we’ll try and work something out.

  3. Are you still able to make these? I would love to get in touch with you in the near future to maybe order one of these if possible 🙂

    1. Hi Liz, I am so sorry for my tardy response, I have been quite ill recently (updates at my FB page) and am just now catching up on online matters. I am not sure at the moment if I will be. I am traveling until late September and will see then 🙂
