Barbie has had a make-under, as revealed in the first photos of the Katniss doll, inspired by the heroine of the Hunger Games.
Mattel has launched its special collection doll, based on 16-year-old Katniss.
The make-up free figurine is decked out in her signature boots and black-and-orange jacket, with a trademark mockingjay pin, braid and bow and arrow.
It is a far cry from the traditional pink-loving Barbie doll, of the the Malibu Dream House and stiletto heels variety.
Since its 2008 release, the Hunger Games book trilogy by author Suzanne Collins has sold more than 11 million copies, and has been published in 47 foreign-language editions.
The movie has stayed atop the box office for three consecutive weeks after its $155 million opening last month, and has now passed the $300 million mark in total revenue.
The doll’s precise resemblance to Katniss, played by Jennifer Lawrence in the film, is another example of fans’ loyalty to the franchise.
