This year marks the Star Trek’s 50th Anniversary, and to celebrate Mattel is releasing this officially licensed San Diego Comic-Con 2016 Exclusive Star Trek Orion Girl Barbie Doll based on the historic television show’s pilot episode “The Cage”. In that first episode, the Talosians use their power of illusion to interest Captain Pike (the Enterprise’s first captain) in a young woman named Vina. They present her in various guises and settings, including as a beautiful, green-skinned Orion girl. Dressed in her shimmering metallic gold dancer’s dress with matching gold arm cuff, Vina as an Orion remains one of the most enduring images from Star Trek.
The San Diego Comic-Con 2016 Exclusive Star Trek 50th Anniversary Orion Girl Vina Barbie Doll will be available for pre-order at MattyCollector.com for $50 on June 15th for subscribers only, and from June 16th-25th for everyone else. Orders must be picked up in person at San Diego Comic-Con. Products will also be available for purchase at the convention.
