NEW YORK (CBS NEWS) - Last month, Mattel announced that it was creating a Barbie doll of “The Hunger Games” heroine Katniss Everdeen. Now, fans of the Suzanne Collins books, and the blockbuster film, can see what the doll will look like. Mattel unveiled the doll, which is part of its Barbie Collector line, on Monday. The replica is dressed in what the District 12 tribute wears in the Games — green pants, black shirt, boots and a black jacket with orange trim. She carries Katniss’ weapon of choice — a bow and quiver of arrows — and has a gold Mockingjay pin on her lapel. The doll retails for $29.95 and is available for pre-order on BarbieCollector.com. It will be released in August 2012, to coincide with the DVD debut of “The Hunger Games.”
