Barbie X-Files Dolls! Squeeeeeeee!

Image
Rarely am I temped by Barbie Collector dolls mostly because they are hella spendy for what usually is sad articulation, sometimes glued on clothes, and total lack of accessories.  BUT...these X-Files dolls look amazeballs. The sculpts and face screenings seem perfect. The clothes look really nice and look at those little badges people. They better come with phones too. If not I will steal some from one of those accessory packs...and maybe the guns from the Poppy Parker spy movie line.

There is a great and shockingly informative blog post about the dolls including behind the scenes photos from the design room over on the Mattel blog.

The Story: It came as no surprise that the only person in town that could actually outshine a movie star on premiere night would be Baroness Agnes Von Weiss. After all, did she not deserve to be there after all those hours spent looking for the right person to bribe on that set so she could get a walk-on role, no matter how random her presence on-screen would seem to eager movie going audiences?
For Agnes, how she got there did not matter much; being a part of this production was just another logical step to take in order to better cement her presence in the media. Shockingly, her brief scenes ended up being some of the most memorable ones and movie…

The Story:
No one knows how to do opening nights like oligarch Tatyana Alexandrova. While she would love for everyone to think that her sudden appearance at the Sacred Lotus premiere was just a pure "coincidence" and that the fact that she was perfectly dressed for the occasion was just a fluke, her "it's all so easy" demeanor never fools anyone.

The reality is that this ever-calculating femme-fatale would never leave a single detail of such an important public appearance go unchecked. A woman of her character knows full well what she wants; after all, a Goddess demands nothing but perfection!

Included:
12.5-inch fully arti…

On a personal level, no…

The Story:
When his favorite music video producer called to ask if the NU.

Once he found out what singer the music video was for and just how …
