No thong, but still smokin'
I am by no means a doll collector, but I do think Cher is awesome so when this doll was released, in one of my favorite iconic Cher outfits no less, I had to snatch one up. Well, two actually, lol. One to take out of the box and enjoy as a novelty, and the other to keep in its original packaging, which with its sleek black finish and holographic background is nearly as gorgeous as the doll itself.
I've never reviewed a Barbie before, so I'm not quite sure what to say that isn't evident in the photos. The likeness to the real Cher is actually very good (insert plastic joke here), though the cheekbones probably could have been slightly more exaggerated, and the hair is kind of lumpy from being squished in the package. The outfit is an exact replica of the costume she wore during the Turn Back Time/Strong Enough segment of her 2002/2003 Farewell Tour, which in itself was an updated version of the piece she wore in the 1989 Turn Back Time music video. I will say I was just a little disappointed that it didn't include the infamous thong, but I suppose that might have looked strange on a Barbie doll.
Like I said, I'm no Barbie enthusiast, I just buy what I like. But I am curious why, after about two years of being on the market, this particular doll has not seen the increase in value that other Cher dolls have had recently. Maybe it was made in greater numbers than say, the Half Breed Indian Chief Cher doll, which I also have, but it did come out around the same time in the same Black Label line. Anyway, that's not important. It's still a smokin' hot doll and a real conversation piece when friends come over.
you will love this doll !!!!!!!!!!!
if you are any thing like me and enjoy cher as i do and have for most of my life then this doll is a must have.from the piont of the barbie doll colector if you know any thing about barbie you will know that any cher barbie dolls made seems to just go up in value.lets not forget the designer of this doll is bob mackie whos dolls seem to just go up and up and up in value.so it was a very easy choice for me this doll was a must have for my colection.
I purchased this doll because I love Cher - she is a wonderful addition to my already nice collect of dolls. I would not agree to taking her out of the box and pouring hot then cold water on her head as the previous reviewer did, that will most certainly depreciate her value, but if you are not looking for the value of the doll and want her to look like she should, then that is a great idea!
Over all, I love my Cher doll, I just wish that Bob Mackie would create one of her with the black head dress and low shirt with netting shirt. I'd be first in line to get that one
