Jeep Wrangler Rubicon

Tombraider 2: Cradle of Life

The second Tombraider movie is Tombraider 2: Lara Croft and the Cradle of Life. And who doesnt recognize the star of the show - Angelina Jolie. (Ptweeeet-tweet *catcalls hehe). Quite surprising though is the movie's performance at the box office. I personally thought that the movie was a hit, however, the numbers say otherwise. This is probably the reason why Tombraider 3 is in Limboland even though La Jolie is said to ok to go back as Lara Croft.

Let's leave the 'biz news to the 'biz shows and mags and let's take a look at which vehicle Lady Croft drove that ended on my collection shelf. :) Here we go - a customized 2003 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon. The Chrysler Group, the company behind the Jeep brand is said to have manufactured 1000 units only (Tombraider version). My version? A 1:24 scale diecast kit. So I had to do some little bit of assembling. After an hour or two.....presto !

Here's a little bit of trivia, while this second Tombraider movie did not fare well compared to the first Tombraider, there is ample supply of the Jeep Rubicon diecast vehicle in the market. Did Lara Croft drive a similar vehicle in the first movie? Yes. It was a Land Rover Defender! Now this little puppy is very rare. Currently, I saw only 2 listings on Ebay and its the matchbox-sized one. Price? Don't ask. I cannot afford it. :( I think I'll start making my Christmas list early and write this one in.
