How would Bruce Wayne feel about his superhero alter ego becoming a Barbie doll? We're not sure, but this latest piece of merchandise from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is sure to be a big seller. We have your first look at Barbie's new vigilante pal, who arrives with Wonder Woman at his side. We're not sure where Superman is, but he's likely to get his own Barbie doll in the near future as well.
Mattel announced that it would be launching a line of Barbie dolls based on Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice during Comic Con in San Diego this past July. During the event, we got our official first look at Wonder Woman, who is played by Gal Gadot in the movie. At that time, it was confirmed that Henry Cavill and Ben Affleck would be getting the Barbie treatment as well. Now, we have all of the packaged images of Batman and Wonder Woman as they will be seen on store shelves. And if you want, you can pre-order the dolls at Amazon. Warning though, they come at quite a high price.
Over the past few weeks, we've seen more and more toys and merchandise from Dawn of Justice, with everything from action figures, to coffee mugs, to T-shirts and even a life-sized Armored Batman. There are also Funko Pops! heading our way, and a whole lot more over the course of the next two months as we lead into the March release of this epic blockbuster. But the Barbie Dolls certainly are unique keepsakes that will be sought out by kids and collectors alike. The packaging on the Batman Barbie reads as such.
"Fearing the actions of a god-like Super Hero left unchecked, Gotham City sends its own formidable, forceful vigilante to take on the most revered, modern-day savior from Metropolis while the world wrestles with what sort of hero it really needs. And with Batman and Superman at war with one another, a new threat quickly arises, putting mankind in greater danger than it's ever known before."
If you're a little too manly to be playing with Barbie dolls, Hot Toys also recently announced their own Batman action figures. They are offering a 1/6th scale Armored Batman doll alongside a Life-Sized version. The human-sized action figure is the first in Hot Toys personal new collection that they are referring to as the Life-Size Masterpiece Series. It arrives movie accurate. And it is decked out in realistic armor as created for the movie. The piece will only be available in select markets. It stands a whopping 6.4ft tall, 7.2ft tall once you have it situated on its custom made base. It also features light-up eyes as seen in the trailers and photos released for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice thus far.
