Mad Men Barbies: Somewhere Between WANT and WTF

Reasons why this is WANT:

- I like collecting shit
- This paragraph,

Gracefully molded of Silkstone®, a material that resembles the look and weight of porcelain, each doll is stylized in iconic costumes from the series, and comes with accessories true to their show counterparts. Don Draper wears his classic, polished red-lined suit and comes accessorized with a hat, overcoat and brief case; Betty Draper's classic look is captured with unparalleled detail, from her faux pearl necklace to her pumps; Joan Holloway looks chic in a purple skirt suit and perfectly styled coif with her staple accessory - a pen necklace; and Roger Sterling is looking dapper in his monogrammed shirt.

Reasons why this is WTF:

- I can only display my Joan doll if I take her out of the collector packaging to stuff her Barbie outfit with enough padding to make her look like the real woman Christina Hendricks is HELLO
- 75 bucks each? EACH? That's more than the custom made Daniel Faraday action figure I bought, and only like 7 of those exist, and it's Daniel cussing Faraday for fuck's sake! (Because cuss' sake is awkward to both type and say.)

Hat Tip: @Canakatydid

Side note of mega fun!!!! created his OWN Mad Men Barbie Dolls with no 75 dollar price tag. 75 dollars?! That's a year of unlimited trips to Disneyland! 75 bucks?! That's more than a perfectly respectable, gets the job done, 500 piece set of poker chips!

I can't believe they skinnified Joan. I mean I can believe it, but really? :/
