Star Wars Barbie Dolls Let the Iconic Fashionista Become Princess Leia, R2-D2, and Darth Vader

Three premium dolls celebrate the Star Wars universe in a new way.

Barbie has gone to space before, but not quite like this. Mattel revealed a line of super cool Star Wars Barbie dolls inspired by the first film in the Star Wars franchise, Star Wars: A New Hope.

The three dolls are themed after Princess Leia, R2-D2, and Darth Vader. Rather than being exact replicas of the characters from the films, each doll features a “high-fashion” look. For instance, the R2-D2 doll sports bright blue hair and dramatic makeup around her right eye, while the Darth Vader Barbie is wearing a shiny pencil skirt and knee-high boots.

The three dolls are now available for pre-order on Amazon ahead of their release on November 18, 2019. They’re not cheap; each one will set you back $100. However, they’d be a terrific addition to any Barbie or Star Wars collection, and they each come with a stand (and certificate of authenticity) so you can proudly show them off.
