Mattel Farrah Fawcett Doll Will Be Released Next Fall Officially with a Date!

The rumor of Mattel’s Farrah Fawcett doll  is finally confirmed. I found the Farrah Fawcett doll prototype picture at Barbie’s official website about a week ago (on 12th Nov.,) and posted it in my flickr album and FaceBook. It has generated generated quite a number of responses. Obviously, there are many FF fans like me all over the world, especially in the dolly community!

Appreciate This Doll BUT….

Mattel choose the most iconic Farrah look – a replica image of her in one-piece red bathing suit from the 6 million sold poster.  Although the pose and look are unmistakable resemble our late Farrah, there are so many areas that need to be modified. 

First of all, her fierce flipping hair style is wrong, the signature laughing mouth shape is not right as Farrah has more rectangular mouth shape when she had big laugh, the nose shape is not right either!  The golden chain is over-sized.

This is a MUST have item for any Farrah fans that is included me!!!   I am looking forward to seeing how Noel Cruz would transform this Farrah into a real Farrah doll!!

i totally agree with you on every point; the nose/ mouth-shape/ hair/ chain/ etc.. as you stated, 'we shouldn't complain'.. but slightly disappointed knowing that mattel has the resources to make the 'perfect' doll, it looks as if it was rushed..
