Beautiful, extremely well done!
I had hoped to post pics of Dragon Empress today but she’s currently touring Edison, New Jersey. I have family there so I hope she drops by to say “hi”!
So instead, I’ll share photos of the 40th Anniversary Black Barbie. She really is a lovely homage to the original doll with a fun twist. We also already have a nice repro of her so this was, I think, a good middle ground. She makes great use of the Selma face sculpt and I do like the curvy model muse body. She’s got a bit of attitude as well, which I like as well. So for me, considering some of what Mattel has been releasing as of late, I really think that Bill Greening did an excellent job on her.
As a side note, she is not articulated which I know is annoying some collectors. Again, most dolls these days are articulated. So please save some for us who don’t care for it. Not everyone is enamored of articulation and I like the fact that Mattel is producing something for everyone.
