The doll, sporting a striped metallic jumpsuit with matching platform red boots and cosmic accessories, symbolizes Bowie’s bisexual alien messenger alter-ego Ziggy Stardust.

“In a definitive celebration of two pop culture icons, Barbie honors the ultimate pop chameleon, English singer, songwriter and actor, David Bowie, whose dramatic musical transformations continue to influence and inspire,” Mattel said in introducing the $50 doll.

It added that the collectible was a tribute to “the cultural legacy of the musical genius who redefined rock and roll.”

The singer, who died in 2016, had said that his classic 1969 single “Space Oddity” was inspired by filmmaker Stanley Kubrick’s epic film “2001,” which was released a year earlier.
