Like her, but gotta say, not happy with the plastic breastplate, it looks cheap and the rest doesn't
The last of the Barbie x Star Wars dolls arrived last week with the addition of the Chewbacca Barbie to my collection. I will say that given her higher price tag and her ďplatinumĒ label, I expected more. I also got, it at least to some degree. The addition of the hand bag that features the pattern of Chewbaccaís famous bandolier strap is a nice touch. She does also have the matching patterned bracelet which is something I felt sure would be left off of the final production doll. Iím pleased to see that it was included even if itís not particularly visible at first glance with all of that faux fur.
Like C-3PO, Iím digging her boots, which sort of have a Louboutin Dolly Forever vibe to them, though on a smaller scale. I do like the subdued makeup which puts this more in line with what I would expect from a doll associated with Chewbacca. Finally, the faux fur band around her box is also a nice touch and I appreciate that. Was she worth the extra $50? Probably not, but I used my credit on her, so for the $20 extra? Yes, Iím fine with that.
