but would Joan Holloway see herself in Barbie?

For a while many years ago I was geekishly collecting Star Trek Barbies and X-Files Barbies, so I squee’d when I saw this:

March 10, 2010 — New York, NY — Mattel, Inc., Lionsgate® (NYSE: LGF), and AMC announced today the launch of four Barbie® Collector “Mad Men” dolls available to consumers July 2010. Designed by Barbie designer Robert Best, the “Mad Men” Barbie doll line features key players from the Sterling Cooper Advertising Agency: creative director and leading man Don Draper; his wife Betty Draper; Sterling Cooper partner Roger Sterling; and bombshell office manager Joan Holloway. Today’s announcement marks the first licensed doll line in the Barbie Fashion Model Collection, a signature silkstone collection within the Barbie brand known for featuring couture quality fashions and accessories.

I dunno — the luscious Joan looks a bit too willowy rendered in plastic:

And then there’s this:

The “Mad Men” Barbie Collector doll collection embodies the “Mad Men” series’ couture fashions and accessories, and its iconic 1960s style and aesthetic.

Iconic 1960s style and aesthetic? Do the dolls come with cigarettes and martinis? Somehow, I doubt it.

Still: *squee*!

This has been your OMG Thought for the Day.

    Gosh, the Joan Barbie appears to missing a little something, doesn’t she?

  • MaryAnn

    Two somethings. :->

  • which is kind of funny when you think about what two things barbie is generally noted for (and i don’t mean her feet).

  • Lisa

    they’re horrible

    in the uk, we just had the one where Pete sees her in the dept store. Poor Joan

  • I do love that they’re using the 60s-Barbie faces. I’ll have to send this link to my GF who loves both Barbie and Mad Men. B)

  • X-Files Barbies…

    What? They had a X-Files Barbie?

  • MaryAnn
  • Paul

    X-Files Ken and Barbie: They look like Ken and Barbie decided to dress up as Fox and Scully for Holloween, except I don’t recall Scully wearing her shirts open so unprofessionally low, which is one of the many things I liked about her.
