BTS partnering up with Mattel for official BTS dolls

BTS is partnering up with Mattel.

Mattel is well-known for producing Barbie, but it also produces other toys such as Fisher-Price, Monster High, Ever After High, Polly Pocket, Hot Wheels and Matchbox, Masters of the Universe, American Girl, board games, and WWE. Mattel has announced that they will be collaborating with BTS for official 'BTS dolls'.

There isn't much information about them yet. How do you think they will look?

I hope they have hanboks as a clothing option, and of course, some Gucci for Tae.

Mattel better get BTS's facial features (esp. Tae's moles) right or ISTG lots of ARMYs are coming for them. Not me though, I'm more into BT21 merch 😅

I had mix feelings about this because at least in the US, BTS is not household. They haven't had one single hit despite their accomplishments and that's because average music buyers are not buying them, Army is. When the masses like you, your song becomes a hit without it even being a plan or streaming for a count. It just happens because the music is liked. Mattel is a massive company so that means the dolls will likely be in many cities and states. I feared dolls just sitting on the shelves but after thinking about it, people have a natural curiosity. If someone sees the dolls and don't know who they are, they may look them up just like millions of Americans have done when they were are the AMA's and BB. That might actually gain them a few fans.

"Under this multi-category license with BTS under its label, Big Hit Entertainment, Mattel will create dolls, collectible figures, games, and more. In the wake of sold out tours across the globe, the collaboration launches this summer with a first-ever BTS-inspired toy line created around the likenesses of the band's seven members: RM, Jin, SUGA, j-hope, Jimin, V and Jung Kook. The dolls will be fashioned in the looks from the BTS' iconic and YouTube record-breaking "IDOL" music video."

I wonder if Big Hit has ever considered the possibility that their product could lose it's appeal by overselling it? I don't know if there is a name for it but it does happen to celebrities, bands, television shows. You cast too broad a net, become too commercial and ruin the "authenticity" of the product. This group started out and has always maintained a more "organic" appeal, as though it' had come together and allowed to somewhat steer their own path. Now, Matel is going to immortalize them in plastic. I don't know, seems to me that we are veering into territory that will only hasten their demise as anything that resembles the "original".
