Oh, Yeah, It’s Here! The Katniss Everdeen-Barbie Doll!

For those of you with Gail Thongs and Peeta ‘Hot Buns’ underwear, the best in Panem collectibles are now available via the BarbieCollector.com New Release Page:

May the Odds Be Ever in Your Favor:

Every year in the ruins of what was once North America, the evil Capitol of the nation of Panem forces each of its twelve districts to send a teenage boy and girl to compete in the Hunger Games. A twisted punishment for a past uprising and an ongoing government intimidation tactic, The Hunger Games are a nationally televised event in which “Tributes” must fight with one another until one survivor remains.

Pitted against highly-trained Tributes who have prepared for these Games their entire lives, Katniss is forced to rely upon her sharp instincts as well as the mentorship of drunken former victor Haymitch Abernathy. If she’s ever to return home to District 12, Katniss must make impossible choices in the arena that weigh survival against humanity and life against love.

Hunger Games Katniss doll wears a hooded jacket, top, and military-style pants inspired by the costume Katniss wore in the film. Included are bow, arrows, and quiver. Completing her look is the iconic mockingjay pin.

There is a limit of 5 dolls per order.

    Well, if mine doesn’t come with Cinna-designed costumes, complete with genuine synthetic button-activated fire, I want my money back.

  2. If you’re not excited about this Professor, can I have four of the five dolls you are allowed to order? I’m not going to be able to get by with just the five I’ve sent for. Nine should do me, though; one for each of her lives in the various arenas…

    I want the Peeta doll, cause Peeta’s sooooooo cute….

  4. Arabella figg says:

    My comment above was a joke.

  5. I wonder if they will have dolls for book 2 and especially book 3, which could be singularly difficult to conceptualize.
    I resisted reading Harry Potter for the longest time because I did not like all the collectibles . Just shows how old and out of touch I am

  6. Arabella figg says:

    Hmm…. A burned Mockingjay Katniss doll (“Holding Buttercup!”). Brain cramp!

  7. Hold on…I think I have a mangy, mangle-eared, one-eyed stuffed cat somewhere in the kids’ toybox! No…come to think of it, we disposed of all the fuzzy collectables a few years back.
    Drat!

    It’s amazing to think that this is repulsive to me, considering I own (still in their box) the Ken and Barbie Romeo and Juliet (complete with dagger.)

    I actually was very influenced by the books I read as a child, and though I had Barbies, I always dispensed with their glam gowns, made capes and boots for them, and gave them those little plastic swords that go in sandwiches at parties. When I unearthed one of those circa 1982 gals the other day, she still had the braid in her hair.

    I wonder if we’ll have Glimmer with detachable fingers and optional swelling from venom, or Clove whose neck snaps (per the film rather than rock to the skull like in the book). No sign of Effie, who really is a human Barbie, or of other Capitol folks, who are already as freakish as Barbie (who couldn’t walk if she were human; she’s that out of proportion).

  9. Dr. Mellark says:

    Thank you, Capitol, for cashing in further on the citizens. This is like a Barbie doctor or vet …. even impossibly proportioned girls can be successful! However, I will say that a girl proportioned like a Barbie could not successfully climb a tree to the heigths that Katniss achieved. Perhaps they should make a thin, dirty, burned Barbie … and I am pretty sure that there should not be so much of an age overlap between the crowd who plays with Barbies and the crowd that reads THG.
