well, I just did something I've never done before... I preordered a doll- the new Katniss Everdeen Hunger Games barbie. her preview is amazing, so I really hope she comes out exactly as she looks in the preview. I've heard she is supposed to have the new fashionista body, which would be wonderful and make her so fun to pose and play with. but even if she doesn't, I'll still like her as a boxed display piece. huge fan of the books, so it will be cool to have a pop culture doll of something I actually like.
hubby was really the clincher in this decision. I was showing him the preview images and he asked if I had ordered her yet. I told him the doll doesn't come out for a few more months, but he told me to go ahead and preorder to be sure I get one before they run out. (at least someone learned from the Jack Sparrow incident, lol. btw, anyone have a Jack Sparrow they'd like to sell/trade?)
one thing I really love about the doll is her accessories. she comes with a scale bow and quiver of arrows! I think this is just too cool, and brings one of my favorite things about her to doll form. as a teen I did archery with 4H. I really should get my bow serviced so I can start shooting again.
