Superstar Barbie in all her Glory!! 31 Dec. 2008
By sunshine lady - Published on Amazon.com
Durability:    Educational:    Fun:   
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.

*GORGEOUS* Reproduction of 1977s Super *STAR* Barbie! 22 Dec. 2008
By Alex Honda - Published on Amazon.com
Durability:    Educational:    Fun:   
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. :-(

Pretty good reproduction 12 Jan. 2012
By Webb - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase Durability:    Educational:    Fun:   
First of all, I had this doll when I was 9 so finding it decades later is just amazing. It is not exactly like the original but it is pretty good. The best reproduced items, I think, are her face and the dress. Her waist does twist, and probably is better than the original in that it does not swing so it can hold a position. Knees do bend. The pink boa comes it two pieces, but if not removed from box, one would never know. I was happily surprised to find the hair is sun-streaked; it is just that the overall hair color is much lighter than the original. It is also subtly styled differently than original (check direction of the flip). The plastic of the shoes is slightly harder than I remember, but look identical. There are black shoes to match the second outfit hidden under the black boa. The black boa is in one piece and long. The black dress is shorter than the original Barbie fashion. However it is well displayed in the box and getting two outfits for one price is a pretty good value. Another great feature is the reproduction booklet and picture cards in the box. If you had it before and want it back--definitely buy realizing these subtle differences will likely be overlooked in the joy of touching your childhood again.

A favorite from my childhood! 21 Jun. 2014
By Rachel Lee Otto - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I had this Barbie when I was a little girl. I remember when my dad bought it for me. Then my (at the time) mean older brother ruined it! I was so sad. Imagine my surprise when, a few years ago, I found this doll again. I had to get it. The toy companies sure know what they are doing by bringing back all of the toys we loved (or wanted) as kids so that we buy them for our own kids.

sensational repro of a classic Barbie doll! 7 Mar. 2009
By Byron Kolln - Published on Amazon.com
Durability:    Educational:    Fun:   
Issued to celebrate Barbie's 50th anniversary is this splendid reproduction of the 1977 "Superstar" Barbie doll. Historically, the genesis of the doll was very important...

By 1977, the Mattel company was going through some severe financial reverses. Amidst a storm of controversy, Elliott and Ruth Handler had handed over their reigns to a group of young businessmen who were totally green in their marketing of the Barbie brand. Dolls started to be manufactured very cheaply with zero personality. The uprising of the Feminist Movement had also seriously impacted Barbie's reputation as well; the groups routinely picketed toyfair conventions and burned dolls on bonfires in order to demonstrate their point that Barbie was an outdated, inaccurate symbol of women.

When "Superstar" Barbie came along in 1977, it was the perfect time. For the first time since 1967, the Mattel designers completely re-vamped Barbie's face mould, giving her a fresh new Farrah Fawcett look ("Charlie's Angels" was a hit on TV during this period); and overhauled her wardrobe to include dazzling new disco-inspired fashions.

This reproduction brings back "Superstar" Barbie dressed in her trademark hot pink satin dress with matching boa and strappy shoes. Also included is another fashion from the inaugural Superstar fashion line (which is known as "Dramatic Black" among collectors). Everything about this repro is totally authentic; this is a great way to own a minty-mint Superstar but without the hefty pricetag!

A fantastic gift for the Barbie collector in your family.
