Mattel Introduces Drag Queen Barbie

She's plastic, and she's fabulous. Mattel has unveiled their latest Barbie, and she's a man, baby. The company commissioned NYC design team The Blonds to create their first Drag Queen Barbie, which will hit shelves just in time for Christmas later this year.

The Barbie doesn't have a Ken Bump or an Adam's Apple, she's just a regular Barbie, but with some decedent clothing. The doll does, however, come with a higher price tag than most—$125—but this is part of a collector’s edition. (You can pre-order here.)

Drag Queen Barbie (real name: Blond Diamond Barbie) will come dressed in a white faux-fur coat, and a jeweled corset dress. Now, where are the LGBT Barbie and Ken?
