Mattel releases Farrah Fawcett Barbie

Farrah Fawcett has been immortalized in plastic with her very own Barbie.

The new Black Label Collection doll depicts the late actress posing in her famous red swimsuit in front of a striped blanket, recreating the iconic '70s poster.

The uniquely sculpted Barbie uncannily mimics Farrah’s mega-watt smile, and features perfectly feathered hair and even a tiny gold necklace.

Collectors and Farrah fans can purchase the doll for $34.95 at Barbiecollector.com.

What do you think of the late star's toy replica - is it cool or creepy?

    Farrah had the most beautiful mane of thick blonde hair. Nothing fake about it. Younger women still today emulate her style.
    From Vogue, Elle, to Glamour, models can be seen wearing her feathered look.

You're apparently young and dumb because that's the generation of today; opening your big mouths and just being mean and hateful. I'm sure you're all the same people who wear Peace t-shirts and preach Love, Peace and No Hate but you are always the worst. Have a fantastic day, now go away and annoy your parents

    Has nearly everybody lost their minds??? I expected a huge backlash over Mattel's decision to make this doll and I have been in the toy and game business for 31 years. The company that I worked for would never have made this doll. Values were always and issue. Maybe they should have made a chemo Farrah with a wig and a head scarf. I'm sure they could have made it so that if you pressed her tummy she would barf. Mattel could have made even more money by selling Barbie Barf powder. Just add water. Shame on the people who buy it.

    My daughter has an actual Farrah doll from the mid 1970's. I didn't like the jawline on it as I thought it was too square. There were several outfits and other celebrity dolls at the time (Cher, Marie Osmond et al). I have to say this new version is much prettier and closer to how I think she looked in real life. I see on ebay the vultures are already selling them on preorder for 4-5 times list price. I hope they never make a penny and that fans of Farrah will buy the dolls at TRU or Target etc, The Foundation will profit and help prevent and educate so none of our children will have to suffer. This cancer Farrah had is preventable. Get the vaccine if you are young.

  40. ILoveFarrahNotTheBarbieDoll

    This Barbie doesn't capture Farrah the way her Poster did. Also the blanket that was in Farrah's photo had more bright colors, (to include yellow), which made her red swimsuit stand out. The Barbie's hair should've been worked on a little more to match Farrah's actual hair style and color in the photo...Farrah's hair was not flat yellowy blonde like the doll! I still have my Farrah Poster, but I don't think the face, or the hair comes close to being Farrah! REWORK Barbie! I'll buy it if you fix this doll!

      Ryan was gorgeous at the time Farrah posed in the res swimsuit. So, the answer is no. Barbie didn't make a "recent state" Farrah doll of her dying of cancer either.

    I don't think it looks at all like Farrah. Good publicity tactic though, releasing this (not Barbie) doll timed perfectly with the Tatum and Ryan reality show AND the recent NEW legal problems of Farrah's son, Redmond. WILL the money from the proceeds of the sale of this doll go to paying attorneys or for drugs? Hmmm?

      It does. The more life like the better. However the poster itself was too revealing and this doll almost just as bad. I've never been one for dolls, but you're never too old for a stuffed animal!

      if the whole world looked like barbie dolls... there would be complete fakeness and no true inner beauty seen. You would see just outer beauty and no depth. That is why it takes an exceptional type of man to detect the beauty that lies within the body and so many men get hooked up with beauty that they end up being miserable because the outside beauty fades with age, unless you age gracefully without the help of plastic..., but the inner beauty is timeless my friend... Farrah was a beautiful woman and she not only had beauty she had a personality that you could never be jeolous of, but sooo admire... She had it all. There are not too many blondes that can make a statement like that. I am a woman by the way..... I am going to buy a doll!!!

      Considering that Mattel has a long history of making icons into Barbie dolls (Lucy, Monroe, Dorothy from Wizard of Oz...need I go on), I'm going to lean on the side of "it's a doll". As a woman who played with Barbie as a child and has collected Barbie all my life, I think I can speak that it does not "idealize" or scar little girls into thinking they must stay thin. I took away that Barbie could be anything she wanted to be ... president, astronaut, stay single, be a doctor etc. Yes, the talking Barbie made her sound like a nit-wit and I won't forgive them for that. But body image problems, no. You want to fight body image problems, start with fashion, TV, ads, and celebrities as these are the REAL people that little girls look up to when they look to how they should be. I mean, Bratz dolls by your argument promote anorexia since they are obscenely thin all around.

      Don't forget folks, Farrah wrote Ryan off her will. He got absolutely nothing from her death. He has no say-so on this barbie, either, nor will he probably make a dime off it. Her son, however, most likely will benefit ... it's just sad because he'll probably go druggin the money away.

      Alecia Lee: Don't worry. I've studied Farrah's will. Ryan O'Neal isn't a beneficiary. Redmond O'Neal is, but his mother wisely included a spendthift clause in her will. The executors tightly control any money Redmond gets. They won't let him blow it on drugs. And because of his arrest earlier this month, that's not a concern at the moment. Getting him rehabbed is.
