First of all I have some 2012 Barbie news. A new Fashionistas line has been spotted in Mexico.
Then here are the highlights of the designer chat that took place yesterday:
Right now just Barbie and Midge giftset (with bend legs, titan red hair) is planned for 2013
Next galactic doll: She’s evil and the villian in our sci-fi Triology “Queen of the Constellation” the last of the series. Fashion colors are black and gold. With red and black hair. She uses the Mermaid sculpt.
No Superstar/ Francie repros are currently in the works
Hauted Beauty is the start of a new series
Luncheon BFMC doll is not the US Barbie fanclub doll
More fashions and dolls for fall 2013 for “The Look” series
No new hard rock dolls
Hostess line is planned to continue
The hair on Luncheon Ensemble is pulled back and up in a high chignon which is hidden by her pink turban.
There are some boy dolls in 2013. Linda is woking on a couple
Perhaps a return of Landmark series
Definitely AA silkstone dolls in 2013, about same amount of dolls as in 2012, some day looks, evening gowns, maybe a tuxedo…
A platinum Silkstone is planned for 2013.
The platinum Silkstone they are talking about is the one that was presented at the 2012 IDC. I can’t belive they haven’t showed it already at other conventions! . Anyway yey, again, for the Egyptian dolls. Those are my priority! And for the last doll in the Galactic series. A Must for me.
