Ok, so this is crazy. Barbie Collector dolls seem to pop up everywhere in…Asia! Just got this image from a reader (thank you, Manuel) that shows a doll in the upper right corner that looks exactly like the Bob Mackie flower doll sketch I saw at IDC last year. This picture comes from Japan and it looks like Mattel Japan has previewed this doll and some new Monster High dolls at a dollshow. Image source HERE.
I do hope that’s her. She looks amazing in the sketch.
I wonder why Mattel Japan has released this doll publicly already but everybody else from US or Europe or any other part of the world has not been told anything about her. Things are SO weird lately. I’ve also been told that Mattel Japan has already released a catalog for 2014 at this particular event so we might get a better look at this beauty pretty soon.
Keep checking back. I’ll try to find out more info.
