Star Wars has been in the mainstream since its initial release in 1977. It’s had plenty of merchandise that is highly collectible and these new pieces just might be the most valuable of them all eventually.
Now backed by Disney money, Star Wars has come for everyone’s favorite fashion doll–Barbie. That’s right, toymaker Mattel and Disney are force-pushing out a line of Star Wars-themed Barbie dolls and they are certainly something.
The new line will feature three prominent Star Wars characters from the series–Princess Leia, Darth Vader, and our favorite droid R2-D2.
In lieu of being exact replicas of the figures with the Barbie logo stamped onto them, the dolls have quite an imaginative flair about them. They’re a fun rendition of an imaginary artist’s cosplay idea if I’ve ever seen one, and they look lovely.
In addition to a trendy purse, each doll carries quite a hefty price tag at $100 each. The dolls don’t release until Nov. 18 but you can preorder them here. Check them out below and see what twitter has to say.
