Barbie Adores Adam Lambert

I saw this a few minutes ago on Rebecca Berry's blog, Inside the Fashion Doll Studio, and had to share it here.

Barbie® Adores Adam Lambert

This doll is called "Barbie Adores Adam Lambert" and is up for auction on Charitybuzz.
Here is the text that describes the doll:
This show-stopping, spot-on likeness of Grammy-nominated Adam Lambert is the ultimate fan must-have! You’ll definitely want this original-one-of-kind “Trespassing” in your collection! Inspired by Adam’s performance with Queen at London’s Hammersmith Apollo, Mattel designer Carlyle Nuera meticulously recreated every detail of Adam’s concert look, right down to the spiked epaulettes on his leather jacket! Yes, Adam doll is wearing a real leather jacket; leather-look pants, gloves and boots are all rock-star worthy!

The Adam Lambert doll features a hand-painted face in Adam’s likeness and his signature tousled hairstyle. His mic is fully embellished with Swarovski crystals.

Your original one-of-a-kind collectible comes with a certificate of authenticity, a rockin’ display case, the bejeweled mic and mic stand shown.

There are several Barbie themed auctions - not all of them are items I'd want in my collection.
For example:

Barbie™ Locks of Light Chandelier by Chris March

"Turn your home into a dream house with this truly one-of-a-kind chandelier. It was originally hand-crafted for the real-life Barbie™ Dream House 50th anniversary event in Malibu.

Designed by Project Runway finalist Chris March, the chandelier is made from flowing locks of Barbie hair and yes, it really works! "

  1. I guess after decades of dating Ken, Barbie's gaydar is all screwed up. :-)

  5. The chandelier is a little ridiculous, but at least it's saran and not human hair. Then it'd be way gross. :)
    Adam Lambert "Cannot be resold or re-auctioned" according to the terms. That's pretty strange! Wouldn't it make sense that if the doll is bought for a private collection, it would eventually need to be sold some years down the line? Even if it's in a long long time.. On the other hand it's hard for me to imagine anyone buying it just to resell- would they even be able to make a profit? If the auction closes at $x, why would he sell for $x+y next time around? In 5 years he'll still be one of a kind just as he is today so there's no reason he'd increase in value like some dolls do as they get more scarce. hmm.

    1. I did not know that there was a caveat regarding the Lambert doll. Is that even legal?
