How I feel about this particular (not yet officially released) piece of merchandise, I suppose, depends on whether I convince myself it’s Katniss Everdeen made into a Barbie doll, or a Barbie doll made into Katniss Everdeen. I am thankful, though, that it’s not Bella Swan.
I did see one young Katniss cosplayer at San Diego who really looked the part, despite being a couple-few years too young. Thought that I’d have been proud if she was my kid. I suspect the only use she’d have for a doll like this one is for target practice.
Thanks to Hunger Games Trilogy for the find.
