New 2017 Barbie Collector and Playline news + images

OMG I feel like I haven’t written a blog post in such a long time. I am still editing the images from the amazing 2017 Italian Doll Convention and I promise this weekend I will publish that post even if I’m 2 weeks late, but now let’s talk a bit about the upcoming dolls for 2017.

First off here’s a list of dolls that has been floating around the internet. I have seen it for a few weeks now but it was not complete with the full names of the dolls.

Barbie Holiday 2017 Barbie doll – DYX39
Barbie Holiday 2017 Nikki doll – DYX40
Barbie Holiday 2017 Teresa doll – DYX41
Barbie Look Collection doll #2 2017 – DYX63
Barbie Look Collection doll #3 2017 – DYX64
Barbie Global Glamour doll 2017 – DYX75
Barbie Harlem Theatre doll #3 2017 – DYX76
Barbie Justice League ass. – DYX56

Thanks, Dannii for this!

I have to say I am MOST excited for the Justice League Barbie dolls. You know me… I am SUCH a geek!!! <3 If we get an Aquaman Ken doll I am going to FAINT!
Anyway, let’s talk about each of the dolls fro them above list.

First of is the 2017 Holiday Barbie doll that is already for sale in Mexico. So many new dolls poping up in Mexico these days… Lucky you!

Deleted because they were not supposed to go on sale just yet.

Hmmm… Can’t say I am crazy about her. Love the box (hated the 2016 one), but her face is too basic for my taste. Can’t wait to see the other 2. I bet I will like them more.

The 2017 Barbie LOOK dolls are geting something new. I can’t say what because you know… I want to respect the work of the designers at Mattel, but I think you will like it. My lips are sealed!

So excited for the Global Glamour (is it Romanian inspired??? :D ) and the Harlem Theatre dolls. I wonder if Linda has worked on the GG doll. I would love to see another doll created by her.
I can also tell you a new Silkie is coming soon and she has an interesting look. Again I can’t say more, but this look is a bit different from what we have seen on a Silkie. That info was not correct. There is a new very interesting doll coming up but she is not a Silkie.

Now let’s go to the 2017 Fashionistas dolls. Yes, Ken is getting a different size body!

OMG let the drama begin. Lol. This new body shape for Ken will create such an intense debate in the doll community, just like the new body shapes for Barbie. Some will love it, some will hate it. Where do you stand with this?

So anything exciting for you in this list? What will you buy and what not? Please share your thoughts with me.

New IRL images of the Wonder Woman and DC Super Hero Girls dolls

Thanks to a reader of mine, S Havilland Parker :* , we have new IRL images of the beautiful playline Wonder Woman action dolls plus a few with the new DC Super Hero Girls. The only one I don’t like is Steve Trevor because of his molded pants and the fact that he looks nothing like Chris Pine. :( Other ta\han that, love them all!

Now come on and show us Wonder Woman Collector Barbie dolls!

2017 Quinceanera Barbie IRL Images

Looks like the 2017 Quinceanera Barbie doll has been spotted at Walmart. She sports the ever cute and not so appreciated Teresa sculpt and I LOVE THAT! I think Teresa is such an underrated sculpt that has been neglected a lot since the 90s. So nice to see her pop up in the Collector Line again since the Basics.

New Fashionistas Barbie dolls: Pretty Popsicles Doll & Pink Tulle Skirt Doll?

Ok… So I’m a bit skeptical. A collector friend (Dannii Saumane‎) posted on The Doll Cafe forum about two new Fashionistas dolls that have popped up on Amazon. Pretty Popsicles Doll & Pink Tulle Skirt Doll. The problem is they promo images look very messy. Are they real? Click the name of the dolls to go to their pages. I have done some print screens of the pages just in case it turns out they are not real.

New 2017 Fashionistas Ken dolls

An Instagram user has posted yesterday an image of the upcoming 2017 Fashionistas Ken doll and they look really good! I can see Carlye’s hand as I know he loves using new and different molds. Now if we can only made that hair real, they would be perfect.
