PHOTO: 'First Look' at the Katniss Barbie Doll

Entertainment Weekly brings us our exclusive 'first look' at the Katniss Barbie Doll. Read the designers interview, describing how the doll was made, below.
“I chose to dress her in the outfit she wears during the games, since this is where all the non-stop action takes place and is instantly recognizable by fans,” says [Bill] Greening of the Katniss Barbie. “Of course, she wears her mockingjay pin proudly on her lapel.” 
Designers at Mattel created Katniss’ look by going straight to the source and examining the actual costume that Jennifer Lawrence wore inThe Hunger Games. “Hopefully Hunger Games fans can appreciate the attention to detail,” Greening says.”The doll’s minimalistic style and details — such as her loosely braided hair and makeup-free look — also really embody the heroic character Katniss.” 
Of course, it took a true fan to create such a doll. “I am a huge Hunger Games fan and loved all three books, so it was truly an amazing experience for me to be able to design the Katniss Barbie doll,” Greening says. “I think it really pays tribute to Katniss and The Hunger Games.”

The Hunger Games' Katniss Barbie Doll will be available on August 1st, but you can pre-order today at 12 PM ET at and other various online retail outlets for $29.95.

We personally don't know what to think about this. How about you? Are you guys planning to purchase a Katniss Barbie?
