Via one of the del.icio.us feeds that I follow:

Barbie Collector Showcase

Modern Circle Barbie doll has a flair for fashion! She features a reproduction vintage face sculpt popular among collectors and is dressed in a sleek green pantsuit with an aqua camisole underneath. Her simple yet chic accessories include a black choker and coordinating black beaded belt. She carries with her a “cell phone” and laptop computer encased in a black faux leather bag, and she has long, vibrant orange hair that she wears straight with bangs.

Doll cannot hold “laptop” as shown.

SO WHY IS SHE SHOWN HOLDING A LAPTOP???

And, for that matter, why does she look like Barbie in an all-doll remake of “La Femme Nikita”? Hey, now there’s a concept….
