Despite what various social media influencers are saying, she is NOT a BFC or Barbie Signature exclusive. There will be plenty to go around for everyone, but it does look as if she will appear on Barbie Signature first. I am hearing from dealers (meaning dealers I actually get first hand info from) that she will be available to them in August.
She will also be the first doll in a new superstar repro series.
As stated on the BFC site, Mattel wants as many people to have her as possible since they are aware that she will be in high demand. This is something that Bill Greening, her designer, is well aware of, too, and I'm sure pushed to have her widely available.
