1980ís Barbie/ken Dolls.....

Post by Kyle_Reese (DN38416) on Sun Aug 16, 2009 8:07 am

1980ís Barbie/ Ken Dolls... I mean action figures .

Ok, so donít 'terminate' me, But my Sister has 3 of those 50th remake Barbies (50ís/70ís/80ís) and she wanted me to help her find out if they are remaking the 1980ís Ken and other males (or females) from that era. (I love the 1980ís so I was happy to help her out lol) I canít find any info tho. Anyone know where I should look ? (I looked at the Barbie site for Collectors, but nothing that I could find about any 'new' 80's dolls..)
Thanks.

I don't know anything about it, but it's cool they are re-making some of the retro dolls. I wouldn't mind getting a 50's one.

I was watching the Barbie story on Bio the other day. She was originally based on a European doll which was made in honour of a cartoon strip character, a German gold digging whore named Lily.

I found that interesting. Razz

And Barbie's full name is Barbara Millicent Roberts.

They've done a 1959 Barbie and Ken two-pack Wedding set.

Saw it for the first time at TRU today. My eldest daughter has quite an impressive MISB Barbie collection. She just got Black Canary, Supergirl, Batgirl, Lt.Uhura and others for her birthday.

I *think* the website toynewsi.com has a forum section dedicated to "girls toys". Perhaps try posting your question there?

I don't know of any action figure/toy sites which cover Barbie releases.

Cheers.

Thanks for the info Artistix, I will pass it on lol.

I work at TRU, I have yet to see (well, look) for that one. ha ha ha, (If I ever have a daughter she will be getting my 12'' Buffy and Co figures. )

I bought my sister's ones for $37, you just have to wait for sales.

Thanks, Xenaphobia I will give that a try.

Only the said set Dirty Digger mentioned has a repro Ken in it. Nothing else of Ken (Carson) wise is slated for the 50th Anniversary since realisticly he is only 48 was brought out 2 years after Barbie.

The people in that section of TNI mostly collect My Little Pony & Care Bears...things like that.

I used to post on a Barbie/Fashion Royalty forum, I just can't think of the name at the moment. I'll post it here once I do.

Aww, poor Ken. Very Happy

When I decided I wanted a Barbie collection amongst my belongings, the various Ken's were just as important as the Barbies, though I still only have half as many Ken's as Barbies, & somehow I ended up with 2 of grandpa Ken:
