    Not very realistic. The dolls eyes are both the same colour.

    It would be pretty cool to put this on top of an old Marshall Plexi like Mick Ronson used to play through.

    I wouldn’t necessarily view it as an endorsement of Bowie’s lifestyle. More like a nod to his Ziggy Stardust-era rock songs. Many of which were fairly aggressive when it came to the rock guitars.

    Not that there’s anything wrong with that.

    What the hell is that big lump on his forehead? Press it and hear him sing Jean Genie?

    I'm just having trouble trying to think of anywhere that doll would look OK.

    The Mick Ronson doll should be made available as well - w/ the blue breeches and white stockings for his first outfit.
    And, yes; mount them upon your plexi . . .
    ;)

    To someone who wants it there are probably many places it would look fine. It’s o.k., you only looked at it online so it can’t hurt you.

    FFS, people: It's Barbie dressed as Ziggy, not Bowie dressed as Ziggy.

    Are pre-adolescent girls going to be interested in this doll? What do they know about Ziggy Stardust?

    Zingy stardust is Still one of the greatest albums of all time ( for those who don’t know this) ;)

    Please. It’s going to be adult Bowie fans spending the money.

    I could see a very cool 50 year old aunt buying one for her niece.....and then maybe wanting one herself. It’s a Barbie dressed like Bowie. I think it’s very cool and good humored.

    Those pre adolescent girls parents probably know nothing about ziggy stardust (nothing wrong with an introduction)
    I got lucky and got my dads record collection to listen to before the ummm... vinyl.. uhhh resurgence (I hate when it’s called vinyl! it’s a record or an album young folks!)

    You never see a movie from the 60’s or 70’s
    We’re someone says “eh check out this cool new vinyl” or “man this vinyl sounds good!”
    Gets right in my crawl! :)

    Looks like one of those $300 Barbies at FAO Swhatever. Not like any Bowie I've ever seen.
    They'll sell.
