Mad Men‘s Don and Betty Draper, Roger Sterling and Joan Holloway will become the latest screen stars to turn plastic. Mattel, Inc. will release a Barbie Collector line of dolls modeled after the award-winning show’s leading characters. Each doll will be made from Silkstone, a material that resembles the look and weight of porcelain, styled in iconic 1960s costumes with accessories true to their characters. For example, the Don Draper doll wears a classic red-lined suit and comes complete with a hat, overcoat and brief case while the Joan Holloway doll, in a curve-hugging purple skirt suit, wears her signature pen necklace. Sadly, no signature cocktails or packs of cigarettes are included for maximum veracity to the show. The dolls, which will retail for $75 each, will be available at BarbieCollector.com and select retailers come July. And starting March 23, exclusive collectible sketches of the Mad Men Barbie Collector dolls will be included in the Season Three DVD box set.
