Hunger Games Barbie Doll

Posted by Grey Tuesday, April 10, 2012

May the odds be ever in your favor with your chances in getting these ludicrous Barbie doll for Katniss Everdeen, the protagonist of the box office smash hit, The Hunger Games.

With its continued phenomenal success at the box office, the live-action adaptation of author Suzanne Collins’ The Hunger Games has been on the top of pop culture of late. We have earlier covered College Humor's hilarious PSA (Public Service Announcement) posters based on the dystopian future depicted in the popular novel series. And we all know it is only a matter of time before going ahead and make a series of figures based on characters from the film. But we sure as hell didn't expect this one.

In an ironic twist, Mattel will be releasing a Barbie doll of Katniss Everdeen, the protagonist of The Hunger Games. And before you even think about it, Katniss will not be in her flame-throwing night gown and will instead, be in her outfit when entering the Games, complete with a Mockingjay pin and the ever-handy bow and arrows.

The fully-articulated figure costs $29.95 and there is a limit of 5 dolls per order.

Hit the jump for the official press release:

Every year in the ruins of what was once North America, the evil Capitol of the nation of Panem forces each of its twelve districts to send a teenage boy and girl to compete in the Hunger Games. A twisted punishment for a past uprising and an ongoing government intimidation tactic, The Hunger Games are a nationally televised event in which “Tributes” must fight with one another until one survivor remains.

Pitted against highly-trained Tributes who have prepared for these Games their entire lives, Katniss is forced to rely upon her sharp instincts as well as the mentorship of drunken former victor Haymitch Abernathy. If she’s ever to return home to District 12, Katniss must make impossible choices in the arena that weigh survival against humanity and life against love.

Hunger Games Katniss doll wears a hooded jacket, top, and military-style pants inspired by the costume Katniss wore in the film. Included are bow, arrows, and quiver. Completing her look is the iconic mockingjay pin.
