Barbie has undergone a variety of makeovers since its original 1950s introduction, but the newly unveiled Lara Croft barbie, inspired by the Tomb Raider movie, may be the most drastic change yet.

In the movie's newest iteration, the brave adventurer Lara Croft will be played by the actress Alicia Vikander. The new action-inspired Barbie shares a likeness to the actress and is sporting the character's iconic uniform that's comprised of baggy army green pants and a black tank top. In addition, this Barbie comes equipped with with a miniature axe, bandage, a journal and a doll stand.

This doll deviates from the standard delicate design of the barbie doll, to offer young girls an empowering and action-focused alternative.
