Last week, Mattel announced their new “Star Wars” collection of Barbie Dolls, inspired by the 1977 film “Star Wars: A New Hope.” The three new Barbies wear high-fashion designs based on Princess Leia, Darth Vader and R2-D2, and include accessories.
Each Barbie is 100-dollars and goes on sale November 18th, but two days after the announcement pre-orders pushed the Barbies into the Amazon top 20 of best-selling toys. It’s the first time in recent memory that the iconic doll has been this hot a seller.
Next up for Barbie: a series of dolls honoring the Marvel Comics Universe. We can’t wait to see their take on Hulk Barbie…or even Iron Man!
Introducing the all-new #StarWars x @Barbie Dolls, inspired by the film, Star Wars: A New Hope.Celebrating the original concept art, this collectible set pays homage to three iconic characters.
