Mattel unveils Twilight wedding dolls
The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn wedding was one of the most talked about movie scenes of 2011, so when Twihards hear that they'll soon be able to buy Barbie doll versions of Edward Cullen and Bella Swan in full wedding attire, there's bound to be a stampede in the toy aisle.
Edward and Bella are being immortalized in plastic.
It's the must-have merchandise for anyone who considers themseves a self-respecting Twihard: The commemorative Edward and Bella Breaking Dawn wedding Barbie dolls will be released by Mattel next month.
Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart, an alleged (ahem) real-life couple, are the features of a new set of Twilight toys created by the Barbie manufacturer. The pair will be miniaturized wearing the same outfits they donned to tie the knot as Edward Cullen and Bella Swan in the winter blockbuster The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn -- Part 1.
The lovebirds have the sought-after Carolina Herrera gown, tux and hair from the big day. But if you want to know what's underneath, you'll have to wait till the honeymoon!
The dolls will be released on BarbieCollector.com in February. Each doll will retail for $29.95.
The star-crossed lovers of Twilight were first turned into Barbie dolls in 2009. The Bella Swan Barbie doll and the Edward Cullen Collector's Barbie were huge hits when they arrived on shelves that fall. Various other characters have been Barbie-fied too: Including Alice, Victoria and Jane.
Edward and Bella are not the first celebrities to be turned into wedding dolls: Pippa Middleton, the sister of Britain's Duchess Catherine, was turned into a tiny model wearing the white Alexander McQueen dress she wore to the Royal nuptials last year.
