Mattel releases Barbie dolls of Krystle and Alexis from 'Dynasty': Your Christmas wish list starts now!

OMG — there are Dynasty Barbie dolls, people! I got a press release detailing the release of Krystle and Alexis dolls a few days ago, and immediately wrote back to the PR flack, telling her I needed to see them in person. Immediately. And here they are — I’m so happy to confirm, dear EW readers, that the dolls are glorious in person: They’re just as you see them on the left here, in all their gaudy, shoulder-festooned, door-knocker deliciousness. Do you die over them like me? If you loved this show, they’re completely must-haves.

They’re sold separately on Barbie’s Pink Label, and each box comes with a quote from the corresponding Dynasty diva on the front. Alexis’ is: “That sounds like a challenge and I adore a challenge!” Krystle’s is: “If you want a rematch just whistle! If you can!” So cheesy. So stupid. So awesome.

The best part about both dolls? As the back of the packaging reveals, both are in gowns that are “inspired by the original Nolan Miller designs!” As you might guess, there’s a reason for Barbie to get on the Dynasty train: The show just celebrated its 30th anniversary on Jan. 11, and¬†a big-screen version of the show is in the works.

The big question that lingers in my mind, however, is: How long until some gay with too much time on his hands recreates the¬†embedded below — and totally ultimate — catfight between Alexis and Krystle with these dolls and posts to YouTube? I can’t wait:

    And how about a Steven Carrington doll? He actually looked like Ken, so it shouldn’t be so hard to make one.

    • Pink Lemonade

      Which Steven Carrington? The first one or the second one? I preferred the first. Remember the intro with him firmly untying his bow tie from his tuxedo and looking smolderingly into the camera as the trumpets pealed in the theme song. Oh that campy quintissential 80’s show.

    “How long until some gay with too much time on his hands…”

    Excuse me? How…unprofessional of you to even consider using this line in your article.

    • cameobrooch

      I could be wrong, but I believe that the author is one of those gays he is writing about, so it’s all good.

    • shdrew

      I would soooooo love it if someone did this.

    • ea

      He could have meant some guy, and it came out as a massive Freudian slip.

    • STFU, hooonestly…

      OMFG. It is gays like you who can’t take a damn joke that ruin if for the rest of us. THAT ISN’T OFFENSIVE; MOVE ON.

    • Tarc

      Um…. I thought that recreating the greatest catfight in history was a requirement for The Great Gay Membership card! I mean I used my GI Joes and the little plastic swimming pool, but still! It’s *required*. Better yet, it’s on you_tube! Go look; you won’t regret it.

      Andrew — the author is gay, so it’s “inside” — but I am also gay and honestly, Barbie DYNASTY? Sad to say, this is not for little girls (who can’t afford it, don;t know it, don;t want it) but for middle aged gay men. I wonder if Mattell ever releases the demographics of how many gay collectors they have? They certainly cater to them…

    • greg

      Andrew get off your high horse, as if a straight guy would ever play with Dynasty Dolls. Seriously!

  • Loquisha

    I realize that these two were the iconic duo of the series, but…no love for the equally breathtaking Diahann Carroll?

  • Simon

    Love, love, love this article! If only I could get a Sable Colby doll as well, life would be grand!

    • HD

      OMG, I couldn’t think of her name. Sable was one of the baddest bitches ever!

  • HD

    The dolls are nice but give me Dominic Devereaux and we’ll have a real cat fight!

    • woohooo

      That’s the first thing I thought of. Sable Colby was the BEST!

    I’m sure gay men all over the world will be ecstatic. I have never met any adult who collects Celebrity/Pop Culture Barbie dolls that is not a gay male.

  • Tracy Murray

    How long with it be before Mattel issues a Gregory House doll ?

  • Roland

    It won’t be a REAL catfight until Mattel comes out with playsets for all 5 fights: Alexis’ studio, the lily pond, the beauty salon, the ravine (complete with mud puddle!) and fashion studio. Collect them all!!

    • JP103

      That made me laugh. I want them all. I love playsets!

    • Tarc

      The lilly pond was the best TV catfight *ever*. Totally classic.

      • Annie

        My personal favorite too!

    • orville

      Oh man, back in the 70s when I was a kid, I had the Barbie hot tub. That bit of nostalgia is just begging for a Jersey Shore line of dolls!

      And is the Krystle doll just *really* well done or did an 80s era Linda Evans look that much like Barbie with an 80s ‘do and shoulder pads?

  • Voodoo

    Oh wow, this is great!

  • Soldier

    Dynasty Forever! Alexis and Krystle Forever!

  • tipsy

    They don`t look like Krystle and Alexis all that much. :(

  • meliot

    No one could do a cat fight better than Joan Collins and Linda Evans. Boy did that bring back fond memories of the 80s. We also loved Dallas for Sue Ellen & Pam, and Knotts Landing for Karen, Valene, Abby & Paige, but if Barbie’s Pink Label is going to do dolls, then the Dynasty Divas are the best!

  • QueenB

    Where is my Dominique doll?

  • janine Sanderson

    My daughter really wants this doll
