Mattel releases photos of Empress of the Aliens Barbie
I don’t collect Fantasy Dolls but it does not stop me from appreciating their artistry. I know Bill Greening is a very talented guy not to mention one of the nicest people I have had the pleasure to meet from Mattel. I can totally see him and his love for vintage Barbie collecting when I see all of his Barbie reproduction designs. When he comes out with things like this, I see the true artist in him and it continues to amaze me. He has such a range in his designs. Mr. Greening….I tip my hat.

The shoes!! Oh my word the shoes!!
I couldn’t agree more Rebecca. It truly is a work of art. I consider myself a creative person but this is why I leave the designing up to the pros – they will always come up with things that I never even would have thought to do. I could have never imagined dolls like Cleopatra and Athena and Mbili and Goddess of the Galaxy. I love this hobby!

WOW! I think she is really a cool looking doll. I like reptiallian look of the doll the eyes and look and feel of the dress. I looks very textural and the design is really, really nice. Want her on my wish list!

The shoes and anklet cuffs are actually not connected, you can see in the picture. http://www.ebay.com/itm/251098708811?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649
