Barbie is stepping into yet another role, but this one is pretty recognizable to David Bowie fans. Mattel has just announced a Ziggy Stardust Barbie doll.
In celebration of the 50th anniversary of Space Oddity, Mattel is launching a limited edition David Bowie-themed Barbie. Of course, as fans will be quick to point out, Ziggy was actually manifested several years before Space Oddity, but as Bowie’s most iconic look it still makes perfect sense. Barbie takes on Ziggy’s famous glam-rock look, dressed in his metallic space suit and platform boots.
The Barbie David Bowie Doll is a Gold Label doll which means it will only be produced in limited quantities, and comes with a doll stand and Certificate of Authenticity. The doll will sell for $50 and is being marketed as an “adult collectible,” but Bowie fans of any age are sure to want to add this double icon to their collection.
