Where to Buy the Star Wars x Barbie Collection, Characters, Prices, Release Date

Barbie has launched four new Star Wars dolls today, in honor of May the 4th—better known as Star Wars Day. The new Star Wars Barbie dolls are Rey, C-3PO, Chewbacca, and a new Stormtrooper Barbie. They join Barbie's existing Star Wars range, featuring Princess Leia, Darth Vader and R2D2, which launched in November 2019.

Barbie describes the collection as "an homage to the Star Wars movies," saying they are "inspired by original concept art, this collection re-imagines iconic characters through a distinctive Barbie high-fashion filter, turning their legendary looks into runway-ready silhouettes."

In a statement, Robert Best, senior director of Barbie design, said: "The new series of dolls needed to maintain the same feeling as the first series, but also offers enough new details and surprises to keep fans excited about the new additions.

"For this second series, I really wanted to push the fashion elements even further. There are amazing shoe designs, great accessories, and jewelry that would be at home in a runway show or a high fashion editorial photoshoot."

The Rey doll wears an outfit inspired by the character's gauzy crosspiece, a crystal pleated chiffon gown with a crossover neckline and draped hood, accessorized with gold and copper ombre boot-leggings.

The C-3PO-inspired Barbie is dressed in a liquid gold look with accents of sheer organza and golden sequins. The outfit's details include a golden necklace, bangles, and C-3PO-inspired glasses.

Barbie's take on Chewbacca sees the doll dressed in a faux fur coat over a strapless dress with a fur skirt and bodice of vinyl and sheer organza. The doll wears a furry headband and knee-high boots, plus cuff bracelets, and a handbag inspired by Chewbacca's bandolier and satchel.

Finally, the Stormtrooper Barbie wears a head-to-toe white outfit over a black bodysuit. She's accessorized with a platinum bob, dark glasses, cuffs, a utility belt, and boots with a knee protector plate.
