In life, David Bowie was one of the most magnetic icons of modern pop culture, seducing generations of fans with both his music and his counterculture persona.

"In honor of the 50th anniversary of "Space Oddity", which first came out on a 7" single on July 11, 1969, Mattel has unveiled a new limited edition David Bowie Barbie, dressed as Ziggy Stardust.

"Barbie honors the ultimate pop chameleon, English singer, songwriter and actor, David Bowie, whose dramatic musical transformations continue to influence and inspire", Mattel shared in a statement.

Ortiz undergoes third surgery related to gunshot wound
Almost a dozen individuals have been arrested for orchestrating the attack, including the alleged mastermind on June 28 . He was a 10-time All-Star and led the Red Sox to three World Series champions in his 14 seasons in Boston.

The colorful doll channels Bowie's Ziggy Stardust alter ego, with a metallic jumpsuit, boots and wild hairdo. It's a look, the official David Bowie Archive mentioned, that the musician wore during his 1973 tour. Barbie can be whoever she wants, and so can little kids. The character later evolved into the era of Aladdin Sane.

Erica Banas is rock/classic rock news blogger that loves the smell of old vinyl in the morning. There have been versions of her as Cher, Cyndi Lauper, Debbie Harry of Blondie, and Joan Jett. Turns out Barbie is, too. But given Bowie's penchant for gender-bending, this is hardly an ill fit.

The initial run of the $50 doll sold out nearly immediately. The $50 doll sold out in minutes Thursday - but it's already available on back order.
