I love, love this doll. I’ve never been a Hunger Games fan but this character caught my eye because of the extravagant fashions and makeup she wears. I think I’m getting her. She’s destined to wear haute couture fashions. But, as always, she needs to be rebodied…

Way to go, Mattel! Congrats on the gorgeous new sculpt for this doll. It looks just like Josh Hutcherson. He will sell out fast especially because he’s articulated.

Last but not least we have HQ images of the new Katniss doll. If I am to judge by what Barbie collectors have posted on my Facebook page, this doll will not sell just as the first one. :( People don’t like her braid and are upset that she didn’t come in her wedding dress. Well…it would have been so much nicer to have a mini version of the gorgeous gown by Indonesian designer, Tex Saverio. But who knows…maybe we’ll still get another extra doll with that outfit. We can only hope.

    Love all the new dolls. I’m so happy about Effie. I wish she was on a model muse body. I think is more elegant. I also hope in the future that we will see more Effie dolls. I love the new sculpt of Katniss and Peeta and as you sad maybe we will get the bride dress Katniss. They are all on my wish list I just hope my wallet will be ever in my favor :))
