Wonder Woman™ is making another jump to the big screen - this time in a starring role! The first-ever live-action Wonder Woman movie arrives in theaters next month, but before then, Antiope™ and Hippolyta™are joining Wonder Woman in the Barbie™ Collection shop.
To stay as true to the source as possible, each of the doll's faces were sculpted in the likenesses of the actors. The movie follows the adventures of Wonder Woman as she fights for peace and justice, and now you get to be part of the heroic scene when you add these dolls to your collection
The costumes worn by the dolls are inspired by the costumes you’ll see them wear in the blockbuster movie debuting in June, as are their accessories. Wonder Woman™ arrives with her iconic lasso, sword, and shield; Antiope™ brandishes her bow and carries a quiver of arrows; and Hippolyta™ comes with her own sword and shield.
And what action hero dolls could rightly be called “action” heroes if they weren’t articulated? So, naturally, Wonder Woman™, Hippolyta™, and Antiope™ are all fully articulated, allowing them to hold a variety of high-action poses.

Barbie® Wonder Woman™ (shop now) and Barbie® Mera™ (shop now) Dolls have arrived to save the planet! Two members of the unprecedented league of heroes in the upcoming live-action feature film Justice League™, these powerful heroes are bringing blockbuster-level thrills to Barbie® Signature.
“It’s so exciting to have such strong female super hero characters in one DC film,” says Barbie® Signature Principal Designer Bill Greening, who helped get these dolls ready for battle. As with previous DC characters created for Barbie® Signature, they feature fully-articulated bodies for high-action poses.
Wonder Woman™ is a familiar face for fans and Barbie® Signature collectors, in more ways than one. Not only does she have global recognition and acclaim, she’s also had dolls made in connection with her appearance in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice™ and the star turn in her own Wonder Woman™ movie.
For the new Barbie® Wonder Woman™ Doll (shop now), Greening combined the best of both worlds. “The doll body is like the one made for the Wonder Woman™ movie, with a more athletic build to her arms and legs. Because the new Justice League™ movie is set in the present day, her costume and accessories are inspired by what you’ll see in that movie.”
Joining Barbie® Wonder Woman™ Doll (shop now) for the first time at Barbie® Signature is Barbie® Mera™ Doll (shop now), the Queen of Atlantis. “Mera is such a great character. I loved following her history in the DC comic books,” Greening says. “I’m excited to see a resurgence in her popularity in recent years, and I was thrilled see her included in Justice League™.
Getting the costume, accessories, and facial sculpt just right is incredibly important, and Greening was up to the challenge. “The costume consists of a printed body suit that mimics her fish scale armor,” Greening explains. “Then we identified key pieces in the body armor to sculpt and paint to bring the costume to life.”
With Justice League™ debuting worldwide later this year, Greening hopes the Barbie® Wonder Woman™ Doll (shop now) and Barbie® Mera™ Doll (shop now) will entertain a huge audience of their own. “I think the dolls have appeal to doll collectors, action figure collectors, and comic book fans, too,” he says. But you don’t have to wait until the movie comes out to get them – they’re available in the Barbie® Signature online shop right now!

She’s back to inspire a new generation of leaders! Day-to-Night™ Barbie® Doll was originally released in 1985, and now she’s ready to change the world again as a vintage reproduction doll.
Shockingly, Barbie® Signature Principal Designer Bill Greening didn’t have the original Day-to-Night™ Barbie® Doll in his personal collection, but it should come as no surprise that he’s pretty familiar with it. “I know she’s a fan favorite,” he says, “and she feels very iconic to the brand, too.”
In designing her triumphant return to the workplace, Greening also benefited from an understanding of the history and the pop culture touchpoints of the women’s workplace revolution, during which Day-to-Night™ Barbie® originally debuted. “She was a business woman breaking the glass ceiling, so to speak, as showcased in films of the era like 9 to 5 and Working Girl. Plus, she’s the first doll to really showcase fashion transformation – a theme still popular today.”
Features of dolls from the vintage era aren’t always the easiest to re-create, and that can present challenges for even the most seasoned designer. “The pink flocked fabric suit isn’t made from a fabric we widely use today in the Barbie line,” Greening explains, describing the soft pink power suit that transforms into a shirred skirt evening look. “We also had to make sure the fashion transformation was just as magical as the original.” How did they manage to pull that off? Well, it wouldn’t be as magical if we revealed the trick…
Of course, no Barbie® doll – vintage, modern, or reproduction – is complete without a suite of fun and perfectly matched accessories. For Greening, her briefcase, calculator, spectator heels, and wide brim hat “are cues to signify she means business! I also love the Superstar face sculpt, and her bendable legs that ‘click’ when you bend them. It definitely takes me back to playing with Barbie® in the 1980s.”
Considering that dolls of the Superstar era have been in demand as vintage reproductions over the last few years (including Dream Date™ Barbie® and Golden Dream™ Barbie®), giving Day-to-Night™ Barbie® the vintage reproduction treatment was a natural choice. If you missed her back in the 1980s, now’s the perfect time to add her to your collection – or give her as an inspiring gift. Get Day-to-Night™ Barbie® Doll in the online shop right now!
Barbie® Quinceañera Doll is excited to celebrate a young woman's 15th birthday. Carlyle Nuera, Senior Designer for the Barbie™ Collection, is just as excited to share her with you!
In this video, shot at Mattel’s Design Center, Carlyle explains the importance of a quinceañera in Latino cultures, dishes on the dress details and accessories, and shares why it was an honor to work on this doll.
As the Trans-Siberian train rolls to a stop in St. Petersburg amidst steam, smoke, and a crowd of onlookers huddling together for warmth in the chilly air, one woman disembarks, setting a stiletto-heeled black boot onto the train platform. Heads turn while conversations hush. As her second heel hits the platform, all eyes fixate on this elegant beauty.
From head to toe, she's draped in luxurious fabrics and textures. Perfectly straight platinum blonde hair peeks out from underneath her faux fur-lined Ushanka. A sparkle knit top and shiny black vinyl mini skirt make bold fashion statements underneath her “fur” trimmed coat with silvery accents. Black stockings and stylish buckle boots complete the look.
So who is this mystery woman?
She's Verushka™ Barbie® doll. Embodying the beauty and style of a Russian supermodel, she walks the train platform like she would a fashion runway. Poised and purposeful with every stride.
Is she here for a fashion show? A day of shopping? To meet a friend? Only time will tell.
As she walks into the distance, fading from view, eyes stay focused on her disappearing figure, still whispering about her beauty, her inimitable style, and where she might be headed.
Designer Robert Best describes this elegant beauty as “exotic, alluring, and of the moment.” What three words would you use to describe her? Post your comments here.

The 2013 Barbie® Fashion Model Collection sends another amazing doll down the runway! Mermaid Gown Barbie® Doll sends out an irresistible siren call to anyone who loves couture.
It is said the goddess Atargatis transformed into the first mermaid after the accidental death of her human lover. Grieving, she cast herself into a lake, intending to take the form of a fish. However, her incredible beauty could not be hidden, and she remained half woman, half sea creature.
Many a sailor has been lured away from his ship trying to catch a mere glimpse of a magical mermaid. Although the National Ocean Service says no evidence has ever been found to prove the existence of these captivating creatures, they have long been celebrated in story and song.
Now, inspired by such beauty, the 2013 Barbie® Fashion Model Collection welcomes the Mermaid Gown Barbie® Doll. She joins Luncheon Ensemble Barbie® Doll and Cocktail Dress Barbie® Doll in this popular collection that pays tribute to the art of couture fashion and the concept of the European fashion house, or “atelier.”
This Silkstone® doll captures the essence of the goddess herself. She wears a stunning gown created by Robert Best (one of our own gods of design). At once elegant and over-the-top glamorous, her strapless pale pink gown is embellished with iridescent and clear sequins, while a classic mermaid silhouette rises out of waves of ruffles that swirl around the hem. A frothy tulle stole gently caresses her shoulders and cascades around her, and white gloves complete her evening ensemble.
The embodiment of feminine charm and the height of sophisticated fashion, this truly magnificent doll is a breathtaking addition to the 2013 Barbie® Fashion Model Collection. Visit the online shop to see more photos and to add the Mermaid Gown Barbie® Doll to your collection today!
Gone With the Wind™, the enduring story of passion, struggle and resilience, celebrates its 75th anniversary this year! Presented in epic scale, it remains one of the most acclaimed achievements of the American cinema, and one of the greatest love stories ever told. Barbie® Collector is thrilled to honor this landmark occasion with three new Gone With the Wind™ dolls!
This sweeping historical romance takes place in the 19th century American South, against the backdrop of the Civil War and the early days of Reconstruction. With themes including love of home and love of country, the historical events are integral to the story and they capture our imagination. But it’s the film’s passion and the love between the two main characters that capture our hearts.
We are captivated by the tale of SCARLETT O’HARA™, who grows from a spoiled, self-centered girl of sixteen into a confident woman, a lover, a mother, a widow, and to the end, a survivor.
Like many of the best characters in fiction, Scarlett is not perfect. In fact, sometimes she is not very likable. But she is always human, and it’s her very real struggle against the world, and against her own nature that draws us to her, and keeps us rooting for her, even when we dislike her actions.
Of course, every great heroine needs a hero, and Scarlett more than meets her match in the handsome RHETT BUTLER™. Rhett sees the real Scarlett, and although he refuses to put up with her scheming ways for years, he ultimately gives in to his deep love for her. Sadly, the relationship ultimately ends in one of the most passionate, heart-wrenching breakup scenes ever put on screen.
In celebration of the 75th anniversary of Gone With the Wind™, three new dolls pay homage to these passionate lovers at the heart of the story. First, from the Black Label® collection is the Gone With the Wind™ SCARLETT O'HARA™ Doll. This stunning portrait doll, sculpted in the likeness of Vivien Leigh, is a re-creation of the scandalous red dress Scarlett wears to ASHLEY WILKES™’ birthday party. It features dramatic layers of sheer tulle, jeweled trim, and feathers. Drop earring and classic red lips provide the perfect finishing touches.
Also from the Black Label® Collection is the Gone With the Wind™ RHETT BUTLER™ Doll, sculpted in the likeness of Clark Gable. Scarlett’s paramour wears the suit featured in the fateful scene at Twelve Oaks, where the two first meet. Rhett is dashingly handsome in his double-breasted pinstripe vest, tailored jacket, and dotted cravat.
Finally, from the Gold Label® Collection, is the exquisite Gone With the Wind™ SCARLETT O'HARA™ Doll in the iconic white ruffle dress from the opening scene. Featuring six cascading tiered ruffles edged in lace, this magnificent dress is trimmed with lace detail and features tiny white buttons, a red belt, and a delicate cameo.
Celebrate the 75th anniversary of Gone With the Wind™ with the two characters at the heart of this acclaimed film. Yes, tomorrow is another day, but order from our online store now, before these spectacular dolls are gone… swept away with the wind…

Blockbuster season begins early with Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice™ debuting in March 2016! With the movie come three new dolls from The Barbie™ Collection, unlike any super hero dolls we’ve ever created. To learn more about them, we interviewed Designer Bill Greening about the two-year process to bring these heroes to life.
When did you first find out you’d be involved in this project?
I think I first found out about it in late spring of 2014. Needless to say I was extremely excited. I love the DC Super Heroes, and I’m so thrilled that this is finally the springboard to launch the Justice League™ team! Not to mention that classic comic book debate - Who would win in a fight, Batman™ or Superman™? I think this movie is going to be epic. It has been long awaited for many DC Comics fans.
How personally connected are you to the world of Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman™?
These characters are such a part of my childhood. As kid growing up in the 1970s, the ‘60s Batman series was in syndication, and I’d race home from school to watch it. Wonder Woman was on prime time TV, Superman was in the movie theaters, and the Super Friends were my Saturday morning cartoon favorite. Literally my childhood was all about these DC heroes.
What was it like to work with the Warner Bros. team on the dolls?
Working with the WB team was great and a very smooth process. They were very thrilled to have the Barbie team on board, and could not have been nicer. It was great to partner with the Mattel boys team as well. Mattel has a very unified statement for this movie across all divisions. I think we all have super hero fever!
Did you get to see the actual movie costumes, or did you work from design sketches and photos?
Probably the biggest thrill of the project was an actual set visit. I remember Robert Best telling me that I would be flying directly from Barbie Convention 2014 to Detroit to see the set and the costumes. It was really hard not to geek out and keep my professional game face on!
We got to see concept art, the actual costumes, the Batcave™, and the Batmobile™. I even got to hold Wonder Woman’s golden lasso! It kind of gave me the chills to hold such an iconic piece of pop culture.
I also had a great conversation with costume designer Michael Wilkinson. Because I work on fashion dolls, I had a lot of questions on the fabrics and construction of the costume. He revealed things about each character’s costume that I believe make these dolls even more authentic. He specially brought out Wonder Woman’s hooded cloak and her shoes for me to see. He also shared costumes for Bruce Wayne™, Diana Prince™, Lois Lane™, and Clark Kent™.
Here are some details on each character:
Batman’s costume was inspired by the '80s Frank Miller version of the Dark Knight™. The costume looks more like “fabric" versus previous Batman movies. It was like Bruce Wayne constructed it himself, and it’s a bit battle worn. I love the patchwork quality to the suit, and the small wrinkles built into the movie costume.
Since Batman is a regular guy and Superman is an alien, Michael wanted Batman to feel taller and more imposing going into battle. There are details in the suit to make him feel broader, and a thicker sole in his boots. Ben is a tall guy, too, so that helps. We actually counted the points on Batman’s cape. I wanted to know! We incorporated some of these details into the doll. The Batman doll has a chest plate under his costume to make him look bulkier than Superman.
Superman’s costume had a cool rubber texture applied to the fabric. It was inspired by the look of chain mail armor. We had to achieve this with a print on the doll. I think we were successful with the final look to mimic the texture. Michael also revealed there was Kryptonian language woven throughout the costume! It was such a cool insight to know how meticulous he was in his design process.
I was really blown away with the reveal of Wonder Woman's costume - I think he really nailed it. It has all the essence of her Amazon warrior roots. It also looks awesome on Gal Gadot. When we were looking at her heels, Michael revealed she has three different heel heights for her shoes in the movie: A flat, a two-inch, and a four-inch. (Naturally, I picked the four-inch heel. Haha!)
Her shield has symbols of Phrygian script embedded in it. Michael also showed me a beautiful hooded cloak, but at the time it was unclear whether it would be featured the movie. It was gorgeous deep blue, with a beautiful metallic gold lining that he said was inspired by Liz Taylor’s Cleopatra movie costume. So many mind-blowing details and deep thought truly went into each character’s costume.
The facial sculpts of the dolls match the real-life actors. How was that achieved?
We have an amazing and talented sculpting department at Mattel. Sean Olmos worked on Superman/Henry Cavill. Ray Cavalluzzi worked on Wonder Woman/Gal Gadot and Batman/Ben Affleck. Warner Bros. provided us with 360-degree shots of the actors in costume. This way you can see the hair and makeup for reference. We also used web searches for additional images of the actors to see multiple angles, jawlines, eye shapes, etc. I think they really nailed the actors' likenesses.
The doll bodies themselves are unlike any other super hero bodies done in the past by Barbie Collector. Can you tell us more about them?
The male bodies have 15 points of articulation. The female body has 13. They have a nice range of motion too, with more of a kneecap and elbow joint. You can actually crisscross Wonder Woman’s arms to show off her bulletproof bracelets when she’s ready for battle! The new male hero body is amazing. We didn’t have a Ken body muscular enough, so it was time to do a new action hero body. The dolls come with doll stands as well, to help achieve some really dramatic poses while on display.
Would you say these dolls are less like traditional Barbie Collector dolls and more like large-scale action figures?
I think these dolls are a nice hybrid between action figure and fashion doll. I think there will be a lot of crossover appeal with doll collectors, comic collectors, super hero fans, and those into pop culture collectibles as well. They’re at a nice price point for the level of detail you’re getting, too.
I’m very proud of these dolls, as well as the entire Barbie team involved in this project. It took a super team to bring these iconic super heroes to life. It was one of the most rewarding design experiences in my 17 years here at Mattel. I hope collectors enjoy them just as much as I did working on them!
