The Wizard of Oz – Mattels Movie Editions

Since 1995 Mattel presents regulary new Barbie editions related to the movie classics Wizard of Oz from 1939. Although the film is really old, it’s still very popular in the USA, from which Mattel also benefits. The six main characters were produced in numerous Barbie editions. And of course all Stars were also produced in Kelly size.

Unfortunately we are missing some doll photos. If you can help with pictures of your dolls, we would be very happy 🙂

Seit 1995 präsentiert Mattel regelmäßig alle paar Jahre eine neue Barbie Edition zum Filmklassiker Wizard of Oz (Der Zauberer von Oz). Obwohl der Film (ersch. 1939) schon so alt ist, erfreut er sich in den USA ungebrochen großer Beliebtheit, wovon auch Mattel mit guten Verkaufszahlen profitiert. Die sechs Hauptfiguren  gibt es bislang in sechs großen Wizard of Oz Editionen. Desweiteren hat Mattel vier Sondereditionen mit weiblichen Darstellern und eine Kelly Edition herausgebracht.

Von einigen Puppen fehlen uns noch Bilder, wenn du uns mit Fotos von deinen Puppen helfen willst, freuen wir uns sehr 🙂

2018 Wicked Witches: Glinda & Elphaba inspired by the Musical „Wicked“

Just in time for the 15th anniversary of the musical WICKED Mattel honored the both main characters with a Wicked Elphaba and Glinda Barbie. WICKED tells the untold story of the Wicked Witch of the West and Glinda the Good, starting long before Dorothy drops in, and continuing through and beyond the events of the story we know.

The Wicked Elphaba Barbie (Nichelle Face) is wearing her famous black dress, accessorized with black ankle boots and a black cape. She comes with a broom to let her fly throughout the Land of Oz. The Wicked Glinda Barbie (with Carnaval Face) wears her iconic Bubble Dress, with scallops edged in shimmering blue glitter. Her face is framed in blond curls topped with a glittering tiara. Glinda also wears a necklace and light blue heels, and carries her scepter with her as well.

 

Elphaba Barbies

Ihre Rolle als grüne Elphaba, die Hexe des Westens brachte der Schauspielerin Margret Hamilton (1902-1985) weltweite Bekanntheit. Hamilton hatte ein sehr lang gezogenes Gesicht mit einer ausgeprägten Nase. Für die Ephaba Barbies verwendte Mattel wechselnde Barbie Facemolds. Aber es gab auch zwei Elphabas mit look alike Margret Hamilton Face…

✪ 2000 hatte Elphaba als Porzellan Figur mit einem look alike Magret Hamilton Face ihren ersten Auftritt als Barbie

✪ 2003 wurde Elphaba zusammen mit Glinda in einem Kelly Gift Set herausgebracht.

✪ 2007 hatte Elphaba wieder normale Barbie Größe und das Cha-Cha Facemold (#K8685), Release Date 2/15/2007

✪ 2008 brachte Mattel die 2007er Elphaba als Reissue noch einmal als singende Version heraus (#N6561), Release Date 11/20/2008

✪ 2013 gab es wieder eine große Wizard of Oz Barbie Reihe, alle Puppen bekamen ein eigenes „sculpt to likeness“ Face. Elphaba hat in dieser Ausgabe wieder ein sehr schönes look alike Margaret Hamilton Gesicht.
