Black Canary Barbie vs Showgirl Barbie

Black Canary Barbie isn’t your typical Barbie from Mattel. Based on DC Comics superheroine of the same name, she features fishnet stockings, short shorts and a black leather outfit that is sure to have PC parents sounding the alarm – although this doll is probably not aimed at the kids (we hope).

Looking just now at Amazon (link), it seems to be a hot seller, as one seller only had two left in stock. There seems to be quite a few listed on eBay (link) with Buy it Now prices ranging from $40 to $50.

While you’re at it, check out the Show Girl Barbie on eBay (link) as well.

The product description: “When Barbie visits Star City, she needn’t worry about crime when Dinah Lance, the Black Canary, is on the case! Mattel recreates the DC Comics’ heroine as a Barbie Famous Friends: Black Canary doll, which stands nearly 12″ tall. With her comics-authentic costume of black leather jacket, black fishnet stockings, and black thigh boots, Barbie’s friend Black Canary will keep the criminal element at bay!”
