I guess this is the girl equivalent of Stan Lee getting a He-Man physique and godly bio in the Masters of the Universe line. Shailene Woodley buffed up to play Tris in the Divergent movies, so of course the Barbie version slims her down again to starvation levels.

As I live with a Barbie collector who is not bothered by unrealistic body images, I can’t really claim that this is a problem. I just know that if I worked out to get bigger, I’d be pissed if my toy then became a waif.
