What we know so far – 2017 Barbie Collector dolls

The new year is here and everyone is asking about the list of the upcoming 2017 Collector Barbie dolls. As we can all agree that 2016 was not such a good year for BC so collectors’ expectations are very high for the 2017 lineup.

So let’s recap what we know so far. My sources are Doll Genie and Cheryl’s Dolls.

Wonder Woman movie dolls: Wonder Woman, Antiope, Queen Hypolita. Can’t wait for these! I’m a HUGE WW fan and thios movie and these dolls are a dream for me!

Barbie Quinceanera. She is designed by Carlyle Nuera. There have been 3 Quinceanera Barbie and Teresa dolls before so I can’t want to see how this one will look.

25th Anniversary Totally Hair Barbie doll. This year markes the anniversary of the best selling Barbie doll of all times so, to celebrate her anniversary, she’ll ge getting a Collector makeover. So excited about this one!

Three Silkstones: BFMC Barbie Blush and Gold Dress, Barbie Classic Black Dress, Barbie Tweed Suit. I have seen one of them and all I can say is: she has accesories!!!!!

Gabby Douglas Barbie doll. I hope she’ll come in a set just like in the picture below.

Natalia Vodinova Barbie doll. Several media outlets ran a story last year about an OOAK doll depicting the supermodel and they also mentioned it will be made as a LE doll in 2017. No other info about her is available.

– The Look series, Birthday Wishes, Ballet Wishes and Happy Holidays will most likely continue this year also.

That was it so far! I hope there will be more interesting dolls this year and I hope we’ll get some fab Platinum Label dolls. Can’t wait to see the convention dolls! They will be designed by Bill Greening. <3

Info about the Barbie and Midge 50th Anniversary Gift Set

Via Doll Genie I have some very sad news for all the collectors that really wanted the Barbie® and Midge® 50th Anniversary Gift Set in their collection.

For your information… MATTEL has cancelled all orders for the Barbie/Midge Anniversary Set 4/9/2013 – if you didn’t get a shipment of them yet, you will not be getting one :(

No official statement yet about the reason. :( I bet now the set will start selling for INSANE amounts of eBay.

Batman Ken and Catwoman Barbie 2013

By now you must have already seen the new Barbie and Ken dolls that are on sale at BarbieCollector.com and that are made to resemble the characters from the 60’s Batman tv series. Just like in the case of the Oz dolls I almost didn’t want to post this because I’m so dissapointed with this line. It’s a cool thing that they have a new series with a new theme, but poor Batman looks…soooooo….stiff. /:) Catwoman is cute and everything (don’t really care about the vintage mold) but she still looks too plain for me. No wow factor here.

I’m waiting now for the two Audrey Hepburn Barbie dolls (according to Doll Genie there will be one inspired by the Sabrina movie and one by Roman Holiday) and the Trina Turk doll and I hope they’ll not dissapoint. I’m wondering now if they’ll also do a Robin doll and maybe a Penguin one? :P
