'Hunger Games' Katniss Barbie Doll Revealed (Photos)by: Posted:
Yes, the newest Barbie in Mattel's lineup is a Katniss doll, modeled after her appearance in "The Hunger Games" movie, as played by Jennifer Lawrence. The face looks more like a Barbie than Lawrence, but the outfit is very accurate: the grey layered jacket with the orange trim, the silver bow and arrows... and there's even a little mockingjay pin on the lapel.
And, of course, the Katniss doll's hair will come in that trademark side-braid.
The doll is currently up for pre-orders for $29.95 at the Barbiecollector.com website. Of course, considering the movie shattered opening-weekend records for non-sequels and just recently passed $300 million domestically (and nearly $500 million worldwide), the doll is in pretty high demand. Currently, it's on backorder and is expected to be available again in August.
So if you're a Barbie collector, or just a rabid "Hunger Games" fan, better get your order in soon if you want one by Christmas. These things are disappearing faster than Tributes at the Cornucopia.
