Barbie Loves Pop Culture: James Bond 007 Ken and Barbie Gift Set
Off on another electrifying adventure, Ken steps smoothly into the role of James Bond. His midnight blue suit is an authentic recreation of the classic tuxedo worn by Bond and designed by the renowned clothier Brioni. Ken carries a sleek briefcase, packed with top secret papers for his latest MI6 assignment. (Ken doll cannot hold briefcase as shown).
Barbie is the perfect "Bond girl" in a fabulous ensemble created by Lindy Hemming, the Academy Award-winning designer enlisted for the 20th Bond film. A fabulous golden lace gown and striking red shawl lend cosmopolitan glamour. Her indispensable cell phone is strapped discreetly to her thigh, as she awaits the "call" for action. Ken measures approximately 12" tall. Barbie measures approximately 11.5" tall.
From the briefcase containing Bonds secret documents, to the cell phone racily strapped to Barbies thigh, this pair fairly radiates style and glamour. The Bond figure is modeled on the Pierce Brosnan Bond, and is admirably detailed, including his patented arched eyebrows expressing mock surprise. Both are dressed to the nines and look ready to hit the casinos in Monte Carlo; he in a tuxedo and she in a stunning gold gown. There are stands for both figures so you can pose them as you wish, and a certificate of authenticity. Since this set would have probably sold well even without its high quality, its nice to know that Mattel had enough regard for the Bond name to do it right.--David Stoesz
