Divergent dolls ship March 1st




The price point for the dolls are $24.95 each which I kinda figured.  Anyway, they are available on Barbie Collector website now.  The female character does not have a facial close up but even so
she still looks, blah.

Below is a closer pic of the guys face.  He's cute and love the brown eyes for a change.  Anyway, happy collecting!

Divergent....so this is really happening?

While stalking flickr, I came across a contacts photos of Barbie and Ken for the upcoming movie, Divergent.  Apparently, the movie biz is hoping this will be the next big franchise like Twilight (which for me, the jury is still out on that).  For me, Twilight was...ok but New Moon, Breaking Dawn part one and two, I kept wishing for Blade to show up and end my misery. :-/

Anyway, here are some images by way of papusilemele.com who got them from divergentfaction.wordpress.com

I dunno this chick's name because I've only seen the trailer once.  I'm not impressed with her so far and will probably pass on collecting her.  

Ok, next...

Don't know his name either but I'm diggin' him and will definitely be purchasing one.  I know it's the same Barbie Basic mold but I like his face better than my blonde Texas A&M dude and his eyes a brown.  I'm pretty settled and happy with my lady collection so it's all about collecting Kens now.  I'm hoping to customize them for diverse looks and tell my stories with my guys being the focus.  

Oh, one more....

This should answer your next question about articulation.  I'm not at all crazy about the tattoo, I think it's hideous but apparently it goes with the story line.  Hopefully, it looks better in person or it'll be a quick fix with some acetone, tribal temp tattoos and mod podge I'm sure. 


I don't know the price points or when/if BC or TRUE will stick these kids but I'm guessing they'll be around $24.95 each?  Don't quote me.   

Anyways, that's all for now guys.  Happy collecting and have a good one!
