Barbie’s new Star Power

Posted by Helen on February 22, 2014

I have to admire Barbie’s enthusiasm for movie stars and the energy she puts on chasing them.

here I was  told A New Barbie doll will be released later this year, Barbie Portraits Chinese Actress, Singer, Producer, Style Icon  Fang BingBing

I have never watched any of her movies, neither did I hear her sing.  my beloved Fashion commentators Tom & Lorenzo often “WERQ”  her, that’s how she got my attention.  I think she is truly a beauty. some of her fashions are  pieces of art, like this one: http://tomandlorenzo.com/2012/05/cannes-werq-fan-bingbing-in-chris-bu-kewen/

it was reported that the Actress visited Mattel on Feb 26, 2013, Mattel designers drew inspirations from the fashions she wore and will present collectors a new doll in her likeness. The price is  Chinese Yuan ¥888  (US$145)

I do not know if its just a rumor or she is an Asian Market Exclusive or she will be distributed in USA. but photos of the doll has been circling around on Weibo.com (China’s Twitter)

if you like the Empress of Golden blossom, you will like this one, too. her dress is very “golden”, with Dragon design, a symbol of Chinese Royalty.

I guess Mattel does not give up Chinese Market.

    her fans say she loves Barbie and she looks like Barbie!

  9. Nicole said

    Wow I can’t beleive that some people can’t read that you asked to NOT share this information.
    It seem like they are trying to get you in trouble …???

      you know BFC does not like anything “unofficial”, Mods often shut down members’ postings if they mention a new doll that is not sneak-peeked on forum. Also, some demanding members get MAD as they feel that they paid $24.95, they should be the 1st one to know everything.

      one time I was asked to remove a blog entry about the convention dolls “in the swim”, as I posted 2 weeks before the convention started. the Mod(now retired) was very polite, she worte to me “you dont have to, but I would appreciate…. “, so I removed it.

      That’s why I do not like sharing on BFC

    • Hi Nicole, I can read (not perfectly because english is not my fist language). I just did’t saw it. So please next time on the board just send me a PM. I’m quite nice and don’t want to get people in trouble 🙂

  10. Hi Helen, Here Rogier. I saw this on Facebook and posted about it on the Bulletin board. And no it is not like some people saying here that I want to get you in trouble.
    When you read you blog you don’t see it that you asked not to post it on Barbie Collector.
    Someone at the board told me that you asked not to talk about this.
    So I went back to your site to read it again and again but I couldn’t find it. Then I saw that you can click on the comments. And there it was.

    So Sorry. I asked them to remove my post.

    I hope you understand I didn’t want you to get in trouble I was very enthusiastic about this Barbie just like the Indian movie dolls from a few months ago. And I didn’t knew you were a member from the board and thought it was cool news to share.

      Thank you, Rogier. I appreciate that you let me know. Its not a problem, you may edit your BFC post and remove my name from your thread.
      As I explained before, BFC hates “unofficial”, the world knows that I am everything but “official” 🙂

    Unofficial or not, whether we buy her or not, great news and great info. Always love your posts. xoxoxo

    She is already available here in the Philippines. I believe she is an asian market exclusive. She retails for 3799.75 pesos ($85.25).

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
