The Internet first marveled over doll artist Noel Cruz's skills back in February, when he showcased his transformation of a regular Katniss Everdeen Barbie doll (the Catching Fire movie edition) into something way more lifelike:
Barbie Hunger Games Katniss Everdeen Doll
Pitted against highly-trained Tributes who have prepared for these Games their entire lives, Katniss is forced to rely upon her sharp instincts as well as the mentorship of drunken former victor Haymitch Abernathy. If she’s ever to return home to District 12, Katniss must make impossible choices in the arena that weigh survival against humanity and life against love. Hunger Games Katniss doll wears a hooded jacket, top, and military-style pants inspired by the costume Katniss wore in the film. Included are bow, arrows, and quiver. Completing her look is the iconic mockingjay pin.
Barbie has made some cool dolls for collectors over the years, but this Katniss Everdeen Barbie doll might be the best one out there. This is a very good model of Jennifer Lawrence and comes with her bow, arrows, and her Mockingjay pin. The Hunger Games is the best new movie series in years, even though it doesn't have nearly as many cute boys as Twilight.
