There have been action figures of lead characters Katniss, Peeta, and Gale released for the upcoming movie the Hunger Games. However, Mattel is in the process of working on a Hunger Games Barbie doll.

Apparently, Mattel will be releasing the Katniss Everdeen based Barbie doll this April. Rumor has it that it is also available for pre-order for $28. Here’s what the source of this information says:

With this Barbie Hunger Games Doll you can style Barbie just like Katniss Everdeen from the Hunger Games movie! Hunger Games, a movie starring Jennifer Lawrence, is adapted to film from the original young adult novel by writer Suzanne Collins. This doll’s outfit is made to replicate the very same one worn by the feature character in the movie, and it measures around 12-inches tall! Ages 6 and up.

It has not been disclosed what outfit the Katniss Barbie will be wearing, whether it’s the “girl on fire” dress from the pre-games interviews or the uniform she wears in the Arena. In my opinion, it should come with both. Anyways, I’m not sure how many fans are going to be going crazy for a Hunger Games Barbie doll since there are already action figures, but I am curious to see how this will turn out, like will it just be a legit Barbie doll just dressed in Katniss’ clothes or will it look slightly like Katniss?

Are any of you hoping to purchase this doll yourself when it comes out? Any doll collectors out there?
