Collectors of Barbie dolls and Star Wars paraphernalia will be eager to purchase the new Star Wars Barbie dolls from Mattel and Disney. The collection of high-fashion sci-fi dolls were inspired by the concept art for Princess Leia, Darth Vader, and R2-D2 in Star Wars: A New Hope and offer creative takes on these popular characters.
It's safe to say that nearly all of the available R2-D2 toys on the market represent the droid in its robot-like form but Barbie's take on the character introduces a stylish, anthropomorphized female character with long blue hair and colorfully asymmetrical eye makeup.
Each of the collectible Star Wars Barbie dolls retails for $100 and comes in a unique package. Mattel has shared that these dolls are just the first in a series of Star Wars-inspired dolls for collectors.
