Mattel Releases Star Wars-Themed Barbie
May the force be with… Barbie!?
The iconic doll of your childhood is now getting an intergalactic makeover to pay homage to the release of Star Wars: A New Hope. This new line of Barbies are being described by toymaker Mattel as Star Wars characters re-imagined in a Barbie aesthetic! So while the likeness between these dolls and your favorite Star Wars characters may not be uncanny there are nice touches fans of both franchises are sure to love!
The designs currently out feature Princess Leia, Darth Vadar and R2-D2.
The dolls are currently available for pre-order on Amazon and will start being mailed out customers mid-November. Each of the dolls in the line currently retails for $100. They are collector’s items after all. If you’re interested in picking one up act fast as pre-orders are streaming in as evidenced by the dolls making Amazon’s list of 20 best-selling dolls.
The Princess Leia Doll pictured above captures Princess Leia’s iconic look and features an elegant gown with dramatic floor-length sleeves. Accessories include a silvery peplum belt, cuff jewelry and of course Leia’s signature bun hairstyle. You can order yours here.
The Darth Vader Barbie is the top-seller and comes equipped with a cape, fashionable black sunglasses, a shiny top and skirt that resembles Vader’s armor, and knee-high boots. The look is completed with a dark bob haircut and a bold red lip. You can pre-order yours here.
Now for my personal favorite the R2D2 Barbie. This doll captures R2-D2’s look with a geometric outfit featuring a dome skirt, bomber jack and thigh-high boots over silvery tights. The look is completed by a blue ponytail and “radar eye” detail. Order yours up here.
So what are you waiting for? With pre-orders shipping right before the holiday season, any of the dolls in this intergalactic trio would make a perfect gift under the tree.
