Thank you for all of the updates Bethany.
I've been lax so here are a few news bites for the week....
- The Art of Engineering Barbie that was available through Mattel Creations seems to be a hit. I've picked up mine and I love her. Photos to come. Edition size is around 500 pieces.
- If you're a member of the BFC, in addition to the release of the first Barbie Style doll, promo pictures are up of Bill Greening's Crystal Fantasy Barbie. I like the promo shots better than the blurry IRL ones floating around. The majority of the cost seems to be in the light up box. I still have my BFC credit since I'm skipping the Style Barbie so we'll see. There is a rumor that in the US she will be a Barbie Signature exclusive, but that's yet to be confirmed.
- Lunar New Year is on sale on Amazon: https://amzn.to/2QfZD8U
- The upcoming Helen Keller Barbie will feature a new face sculpt. The working name of the sculpt is "dimples" but expect that to be renamed soon.
- Finally, the Tom Cruise/Maverick Barbie has reportedly been pushed back to coincide with the movie's release. Though Mattel didn't do that for last summer Wonder Woman 84 dolls, like him or not, Tom Cruise is one of the last true movies stars. He also likely has the power to force Mattel to delay, assuming the dolls are actually ready for release and not in production delays themselves.
