Jacob Black Barbie Design Flaw

jacobbarbieoops2One of the things we love about John Henson who has created the Twilight Costume Collection (filled with actual and replica costumes from the movies) is John’s attention to detail. Seriously nothing, and we do mean NOTHING gets by John. He wants things down to the lining in the jacket to be correct.  If you doubt us just ask him about Bella’s St. Jude’s bracelet and you will get a whole lesson in beads, pictures, stringing etc.

John is also the mastermind who designed the costumes for the Hillywood Show’s New Moon parody. John even has a bit part in the video where he plays the tattoo artist. He was so well camouflaged we didn’t even realize that it was him at first!

Anyway, John came to us with a very interesting piece of information the other day. John wrote, “I’m not sure if you’ve seen it or if it’s been brought to your attention, but Mattel’s new “Jacob Black” doll has his Quileute tribal tattoo painted UPSIDE DOWN on his arm. I noticed it when the first prototype pictures were being posted on the internet, and I didn’t call Mattel because I figured that EVERYTHING would change on the actual consumer model. WRONG! I picked up two dolls for the collection yesterday and I was a bit miffed. I can see the oversight…the tattoo is very complex and when your dealing with a replica that’s 1/4” scale…blah blah. correcteyes2So…. I called Mattel this morning. I talked to a lovely gal named Linda who took all of my information. I told her how important this little detail is to the fans and she’s getting the query to the “engineers” immediately. So…feel free to post this information so everyone can run out and buy this initial run of Jacob dolls…it was a limited supply run and now with this error they might be little investments for the future!!!”

So far Mattel hasn’t called back. it will be interesting to see it they fix this in the next run, as John says the “flawed dolls” could be a collectible.

  1. Yeah thats for sure the ONLY flaw.


    Barbie…has it really come to this?

  2. Jacob is too good for Barbie. Recall all the dolls on sale, and cancel production.

  3. lol, doesnt everone know? Mattel and Fisher Price items are made in asia….lol. It couldve been the making of them thats the problem. 🙂

  4. Mimi Cullen says:

    Ive got the doll and yes the tatoo is upside down. But I still like my collection anyways. Wow, the things that people notice.

  5. Thanks Lexicon! Definitely going to find one today!
    And hey, what’s with all the Mattel haters? Everyone was bashing them when the Edward and Bella dolls came out, and I don’t see what the deal is. They looked more like the characters than any of the other dolls/action figures out that made their faces and bodies all distorted!

    • Mimi Cullen says:

      I agree with you, as a collector I have been enjoying myself collecting these dolls..its a fun hobby.

  6. no offensense to everyone who likes these dolls but its really gay why would someone collect them there stupid


  7. Jessica says:

    Reminds me of the first batch of Edward Twilight dolls. The back described his special power as ‘ming reading’ instead of ‘mind reading’!
    Such an amazing power, ming reading.

  8. The design flaw is that his face looks like Barbie.

  9. Lavinia Cullen says:

    it’s cute 🙂 but i don;t think that seems like jacob :-?? it seems like it’s ken :)):))

  10. This looks so sexy and nice. Thanks for the share. I bookmarked ur site.

  11. A friend of mine has one in the box WITHOUT the tattoo altogether..anyone else seen one of those??

  12. I think they nailed him real good especially on the nose.

  13. today i found a jacob doll new in the package but the packaging said it was Bella. wonder if that will be worth anything someday???

  20. It is a wonderful time and energy to invest some cash on real estate.
    Property values are less than ever, meaning some great deals
    could be found. When you yourself have always dreamed of owning a home, this is the time to buy.
    With time the market will correct it self, and the worth
    of your investment will appreciate.

    You have to expect additional fees or prices if you are buying a house.
    Closing prices are usually calculated in line with the deposit, interest
    rates the bank charges, and real estate taxes that have already
    been pro-rated. However, additional expenses are frequently added to the closing prices, including improvement bonds,
    school taxes, as well as other place-specific items.

    Look for a new house which has enough space if you plan on starting a family
    group or have kids. Your new home should be equipped for safety; think about
    this wisely if your home has a swimming pool or steep stairway.
    Purchasing a home from someone who raised their own children in it may offer you some peace of mind about its
    security for your own kids.

  21. Since the half of April FIAIP started a set of fresh projects, ranging from social responsibility to online marketing, in order to
    refresh the image of German real-estate sector.

  22. My brother recommended I would possibly like this blog. He was once
    entirely right. This submit actually made my day. You can
    not consider just how so much time I had spent for this information!

    Thank you!

  23. Prior to you making a decision on what real estate broker to make use of, discover
    how they work out. Question which kind of coaching and practical experience they have got.
    You should also check into the techniques
    they normally use and make certain they are moral when performing enterprise.
    Request to see the broker’s portfolio. He will be able to give you samples of successful negotiations on terms. Also ask the broker to provide you with a good example of an not successful negotiation and make clear what he learned from your practical experience.
