Entertainment Weekly has the first picture of the upcoming Hunger Games-themed Barbie doll by Mattel! The “Barbie” version of Katniss is a pretty good doppelganger of Jennifer Lawrence from the movie, complete with arrows and mockingjay pin:
EW has an interview with the doll’s designer Bill Greening:
“Hopefully Hunger Games fans can appreciate the attention to detail. The doll’s minimalistic style and details — such as her loosely braided hair and makeup-free look — also really embody the heroic character Katniss.”
The doll is slated to be released in August, but can be pre-ordered at the Barbie Collector website. Read more commentary about the doll at the MTV Style blog.
