I must apologize for getting to this past its release date but as the saying goes “better late than never” and especially considering just how awesome this particular collectible is. Yes my friends, there is a Barbie David Bowie fashion doll to add to your collectible shelf. In my humble opinion this is the perfect companion to the recently discussed Barbie x X-Men (seen HERE) and Barbie x Star Wars (seen HERE). Take a look down below for additional details on this must have item.
Barbie is honoring David Bowie’s legacy of fearless reinvention with a collectible Barbie as Bowie doll, dressed as one of Bowie’s most influential and beloved alter egos, the extraterrestrial androgynous glam rock icon, Ziggy Stardust. The doll will be styled in full early ‘70s Ziggy regalia, including a metallic ‘space suit’ with red and blue stripes, flared shoulders and cherry-red platform boots. The dramatic look is complete with Ziggy’s astral sphere forehead icon — and a hairstyle inspired by Bowie’s fiery-red locks. With a shared passion for innovation, Barbie and David Bowie’s mutual impact on contemporary culture make the David Bowie x Barbie the ultimate collectors item for fans of either or both.

Piercing Ken Thoughts: Now while I am not one prone to collecting these types of dolls despite my snagging the occasional superhero action figure every now and again, I have to say that this is absolutely awesome. I grew up loving the music of David Bowie and it remains special in the years past his leaving this plane. Combining his iconic look from the Ziggy era with the world’s most famous doll was a terrific idea and only opens up the playing field to additional eras. Perhaps we will find a “Fashion” or “Young Americans” era being represented in the future. It’s priced to purchase as you can see down via the Amazon.com link down below. This might be more for the collector’s shelf than to open up the box and play with but its your money so do as you wish. What do you think of this item? Chime in down below and let me know what you think.

From the looks of it, there doesn’t seem to be a shortage of live-action versions of the Walt Disney Pictures classic animations coming to light. We recently found “The Lion King” being a blockbuster of a success and “Mulan” is coming out soon as well along with a sequel to the original story of “Maleficent”. This latest one is a take on “Lady and The Tramp”, the timeless love story that involves two dogs and was an animated feature that would bring a tear to your eyes. The only difference about this from the others is that it will NOT open in theaters at all and be an exclusive to the upcoming Disney+ streaming service. Let’s look at the Official Trailer that was unveiled at D23 Expo.
The Premise: Lady and the Tramp is set to tell the story of “an upper-middle-class American cocker spaniel named Lady who meets a streetsmart, downtown stray Schnauzer called the Tramp, and the two embark on many romantic adventures including that iconic spaghetti smooch scene.” Continue reading Disney+ “Lady and The Tramp” Official Trailer→
