5.0 out of 5 stars Superstar Barbie in all her Glory!! 31 Dec 2008
By sunshine lady - Published on Amazon.com
Durability: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
My sister and me got the Superstar Barbie for Christmas 1977 and she was our favorite Barbie of the 70's along with Malibu. I still remember the excitement of seeing her glamorous outfit and beautiful face. She was the first Barbie to have a softer friendly wide smile. Her face mold became the new look for Barbie well into the 90's.Superstar is said to have been modeled after 70's actress & icon Farrah Fawcett, she is a time capsule of late 70's fashion and culture. Mattel did a wonderful job in this reproduction in loving detail. There are a few minor defects, I think her hair may be slightly more blond then the original and not parted on the side like the original, also her dress is made more baggy or lower quality than the original.But I'm still happy to have her. She comes with her diamond ring, earrings, and necklace, plus another glittery black dress! The box has beautiful art work of Superstar along with a few collector cards and fun facts about her and her handsome boyfriend Superstar Ken. One card has a picture of Superstars cool 77 pink corvette, I always wanted! The box could be displayed as is and has a easy lift off top so you can enjoy looking at the photo booklet etc, without taking the doll out.If you loved Superstar as a kid you won't be disappointed. Heck , I still want to be Superstar!! The only complant I have with the 50th anniversary dolls is the new 71 repro Malibu doll has a odd shaped head and body,and her eyes look a bit buggy.. She is not cute like my old Malibu dolls, But I'm over all happy with the rest of the dolls.

5.0 out of 5 stars *GORGEOUS* Reproduction of 1977s Super *STAR* Barbie! 22 Dec 2008
By Alex Honda - Published on Amazon.com
Durability: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 1.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
The SUPERSTAR BARBIE DOLL 1977 reproduction from Mattel's "My Favorite Barbie" line is fantastic!

Superstar Barbie is exactly as I remembered it. She comes in her hot pink full-length disco dress and the hot pink stole. She also has her rhinestone necklace, earrings and ring on her right hand and she's wearing her hot pink sling back pumps with ankle strap. There's also a tag on the doll's left arm that reads "Genuine Barbie By Mattel."

Barbie's face is similar to the Pop Culture Collector Edition: Malibu Barbie (also available in a copy), but a little more glamorous. Her hair is platinum blond--I think that the original had streaked hair--and parted on the left side, flowing down into a flip.

The doll also comes with an additional black two-strap sparkly dress and a black stole. I'm not sure if there's an extra set of black pumps in the box, because I'm not opening it up, but they aren't visible through the box. But the picture on this page shows the black pumps, so I guess they're there.

Two cards, one with an illustration of three Superstar Barbie Fashions and the other features a photograph of "Superstar Barbie" and "Superstar Ken" together, is included along with a reproduction of the small catalog of Barbie's "World of Fashion" booklet. A doll stand and a certificate of authenticity is also in the box.

The box itself is very sturdy, measuring about 11.75" by 13", and looks like it opens up like a shoe box with the cellophane window on top (to see and display the doll). There's a gold ribbon tied into a bow that keeps the shoe box together and also holds a tag that reads "Barbie 50th Anniversary."

This doll will surely bring back cherished memories of any girl or boy who had this doll in 1976-77. If you had one back then (and it was your favorite doll) and are debating whether or not this doll is worth purchasing, believe me it is. When I look at it, I get that same feeling that I had as a child on Christmas day!

I wish they would do a reissue of the "Fashion Photo P.J." doll. That's one that I wanted, but never got. :-(

4.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful, but not 100% accurate reproduction 16 Jan 2009
By Siansonea - Published on Amazon.com
First off, this is a fantastic doll, and only a stickler for accuracy would ever have any quibbles about the doll. The doll is visually a very good reproduction of the vintage doll. Very lovely, and worth the price.

My only complaints are based on de-boxing the doll and inspecting it more thoroughly. The doll's waist doesn't seem to be able to twist, though that might just be a flaw of my doll. Also, the body mold features the lower torso and legs of much later 1990s dolls, with the "B" logo engraved on the lower torso to simulate underwear, and the blunted toes of 1985 and later dolls. The original SuperStar Barbie doll had a plain lower torso and pointed toes. The SuperStar shoes are an excellent reproduction, and the fashion is lovely, but the boa is actually two pieces. I easily stitched it together for display, but it should have been manufactured as one piece. It also should be noted that the Dramatic Black extra fashion is not an ankle-length dress, it only reaches to halfway between the knees and ankles. The black SuperStar shoes are included in the set, and they are very good reproduction shoes. The jewelry also is very well made.

Mattel should sell the jewelry and shoes separately so that vintage dolls can be outfitted with nice repro accessories.

I had to have this doll because I had the original in 1977. Sadly I don't have my original, but I was thrilled to be able to purchase this reproduction. A blast from the past for me.
3.0 out of 5 stars Was one of the better time capsule dolls 3 April 2013

The doll was one of the better dolls in the time capsule collection but was just average with no special features.
