Barbie and Star Wars Team up for Some Fabulous Looking New Figures

Barbie has had some very creative crossover collaborations since their creation but this time these figures are out of this world. Star Wars and Mattel are teaming up to release a new series of Barbie figures. Three figures have been announced: Darth Vader, R2-D2 and the princess herself Princess Leia. Unlike other figures though, two of these figures have been transformed to fit the Barbie style. That’s right, Vader and R2-D2 have been uniquely gender swapped and its a very new and interesting take on the characters. No accessories, and based off the styles of A New Hope, and of course they have been transformed through the barbie fashion filter. The packaging is quite similar to other newer Star Wars figures. These Barbies are quite unique and would defiantly be a talking point in any Star Wars collection. My personal favorite is the female version of Vader. Defiantly a new take on the Sith Lord and the packaging is very Black Series styled.

They are coming to a galaxy near us November 2019 and will cost $100 each. They are available for preorder here.

Check out these fashionable galactic ladies below!

A resourceful astromech droid, skilled starship mechanic and fighter pilot’s assistant, R2-D2 showed great bravery in rescuing his masters and their friends from many perils. The Star Wars R2-D2 x Barbie doll captures the lovable droid’s look in a geometric ensemble with a dome skirt, bomber jacket and thigh-high boots over silvery tights. A vibrant blue ponytail and “radar eye” detail complete the look.
