Move over Ken, Mattel and Big Hit Entertainment have announced the collaboration of the century: BTS dolls.
Mattel, the American toy company best known for giving the world Barbie, made this exciting announcement during Hong Kong Toys & Games Fair and on their official Twitter account.

This special collection will include a number of collectible items, such as dolls, toys, and games. The dolls will be wearing outfits based on the clothing BTS wore in their “IDOL” MV.
This will be the first time BTS’s likeness will be used for dolls, but it’s not the first time Mattel has created dolls in a celebrity’s image. Over the years, Mattel has released a number of gorgeous dolls based on singers, actresses, and more, including Fan Bing Bing.
Fans, however, are worried that the BTS dolls might not be everything they’re dreaming of, based on Mattel’s One Direction dolls.
Even so, ARMYs are loving the news and are pumped to get their hands on their very own BTS dolls.
