OMG, I love this Barbie.
Seriously, how collectable is a Barbie thats being attacked by birds - amazing, whoever had the idea to produce a Barbie based on the Tippi Hedren character from the Hitchcock movie 'The Birds' should be awarded some sort of 'great idea' prize!
This was given to me by my partner for my birthday, because I talked so much about it after first seeing it online. I'm in the UK and this Barbie isn't available here, so he had to go through all sorts of trauma's to get Barbie-Birds out of the US.... damn market restrictions!!
However, I'm sooooooooooo pleased I have it - sure, I think its going to be one of THE great Barbie collectable's in the future (consequently she'll never leave her pre-packaged box home!) but I'm now seriously considering starting a Barbie collection!!! Its exactly these kind of uber-collectables that pique someone's interest, so I truly hope that Mattle (or whoever) start thinking of other ramdom adult-collector dolls such as this one.... how about Barbie-Norma Desmond, or Barbie-Mildred Pierce, or Barbie-Alex Forrester (from Fatal Attraction) or even Barbie-Ripley (maybe with alien in tow!!).
Aahhh, you can but hope....
