There seems to be an infinite amount of Star Wars merchandise out there. Beyond just the usual t-shirts and toys, you can even get a Star Wars arcade machine and furniture inspired by the Dark Side. Now...there's Star Wars Barbie.

Mattel and Disney have joined forced to release Star-Wars-themed Barbie dolls this fall. The collection includes Princess Leia, Darth Vader, and R2-D2. (Sorry, fans of C-3PO, Chewbacca, and Han Solo.)

As if Barbie decided to go to Comic-Con, the dolls’ designs are more like cosplay than accurate representations of our beloved characters. For instance, the Leia doll’s look is inspired by her iconic dress from A New Hope, but adds some high-fashion with a rebel-alliance purse, high heels, redesigned buns.

The Darth Vader and R2-D2 barbies are a bit more imaginative, complete with a long black cape and pencil skirt, and blue ponytail and thigh-high boots.



Well, the Leia doll makes enough sense - but, I think the R2-D2 and Darth Vader are rather weird :huh: . I have to admit, I thought the Darth Vader one was Kylo Ren at first!

Question is, will they sell? (Wait, who am I kidding: it's Star Wars merchandise, so it'll sell to some people no matter how overpriced it is :lol: )

The price for one of these dolls is ONE HUNDRED DOLLARS?! O_o I don't think so. Maybe if they priced them to about half of that? Cause $100 is way to much to ask for just one doll impo.
