Hunger Games fans are either going to be very irate or very excited by the long-rumored release of a Katniss Everdeen Barbie. Complete with a bow, arrows and a mockingjay pin, she’s the perfect toy for girls who are sick of Barbie’s dream wedding sets (or just the perfect addition to a collector’s shelf). Check out the full doll after the cut!


While making a Barbie based on a series about kids slaughtering each other is a bit odd, I adore this doll. I’m far from a toy collector (the only “juvenile” decor in my house is a giant stuffed Totoro), but the idea of a weapon-weilding Barbie is just so cool. I wish outdoorsy 10-year-old me had this to play with, and I’m tempted to snag one for the future kid I may have someday! [via Jezebel]
