Cool new Star Trek dolls coming soon from Mattel
Mattel are releasing a line of cool Star Trek Barbie dolls this year to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the show.
So far they've announced dolls for Captain Kirk, Lt. Uhura and Mr Spock, which all look great. But my favourite is definitely this green-skinned Orion “animal woman” doll which appeared in the show's pilot episode "The Cage", doing an erotic space dance because of mind control.
Even though Captain Kirk didn't appear in the pilot episode, the idea of William Shatner riding around space seducing green-skinned alien women is kind of set in stone these days (it even happens in the reebot starring Chris Pine).
I love the fact they released a doll which appeals on a geeky level, and which is also just a really cool-looking doll. Green skin and the big hair is a powerful look!
The catch is, you can only get your hands on one if you're heading to San Diego for Comic-Con. But if you are, pre-order your doll over at Mattycollector.com so tou can pick it up when you hit the convention.
