Matell Produces Elvis And Priscilla Barbies

February 27, 2008 | Other
News from Matells Toy factory! The company that is well known for his Barbie dolls announces a new product for june. Around that time, an Elvis & Priscilla couple will hit the shelves. There are no pictures available at this time. It's not the first time that Matell uses Elvis as an inspiration. A while ago, they released a 'Barbie Loves Elvis' box.

I am so excited about this because I collect Elvis and I also collect Barbies so these will be a welcome edition to my collection. I also have the Barbie Loves Elvis gift set. I can't wait...

I have been a member of this website for years, but have never felt strongly enough about anything I've read to respond to a story... until now. This plan by Mattel is ridiculous. Who cares about Priscilla? She divorced Elvis and still somehow manages to make a very good living off his image and memory. Elvis dolls... fine, but Priscilla? No way! How will they be marketed, 'Get your Elvis and his cheating ex-wife dolls'? I hope the Elvis dolls sell like hotcakes and the Priscilla dolls bomb in a big way! I don't get how she keeps muscling her way into everything Elvis. She bastardized his memory in her book, Elvis and Me, claiming he raped her and other nasty things. I appreciate she probably did a good thing stepping in after Elvis died and taking care of the estate, but now I just wish she would take her botoxed face and just disappear!

Im Glad There Making This Ill Buy One .But Elvis did in fact Rape Her. She wanted him to make love to her but he wouldnt because he was cheating on her.He cheated on every women he was with. I think its rediculas that you have it in for Pricilla and act like Elvis is god and never did anything wrong please He Was Only Human.

Ma Tai, ur worship for Elvis is blind, Elvis cheated on every woman he was with, you talk about him like he was a saint, a saint he was NOT! He was human, with qualities & faults, and Elvis fans loved him, and will continue to love him, because he was not perfect!

I will buy the Elvis one.

elviskid80, it's not a fact just because she says it is. I don't know what happened and neither do you. Elvis was not perfect, certainly not a perfect husband by any means. I just don't think it was necessary for Priscilla to talk about those things to sell a book - especially when Elvis is not here to defend himslef.

Ironically, the toy Priscilla contains less plastic than the real one. And another thing, since when did Priscilla marry Herman Munster? Will there be an Ann Margaret "On the side" edition?

I've heard they're going to do a follow-up series of dolls based on Lisa Marie and her various husbands. They're sure going to need a lot of plastic. Anyone got the Priscilla getting boffed by Mike Stone doll yet?

I understand some of you are being sarcastic...but please give it a break !

Stop laying all the blame on Priscilla. Or Linda or Ginger for that matter. The only thing Elvis was ever "faithful" to was his penchant for being unfaithful. He had the new girl coming in the front door while the old one was ushered out the rear.

After all was said and done if Elvis was alive today and looked at this he say, reminds me of how good the cake tasted that day.

The follow up to this could be Lisa Marie doll tyring to re-Glue michael jacksons nose back on after his pet money pulled to hard on it.

While we all know he wasnt faithful,she wasnt either,and quite frankly i dont care what he did in his personal life,my problem isnt even about her leaving him,if what they said he did is true she hung around too long,my problem with her is trying to be play the widow all these years later,and not wanting to drop that presley name,maybe she just didnt want to get married agian but i suspect it was for the very reason i named,all these toys etc dont interest me one bit,but again its always about the image and not the music when it comes to elvis and the public!
