In October last year, Mattel and Nicks unveiled a Barbie doll modelled after the Fleetwood Mac and solo musician, which comes with a model stand, a black dress and platform boots inspired by the ‘Rumours’ cover and a replica of Nicks’ signature golden moon necklace along with a tambourine with red and black ribbons.

The initial run sold out instantly, and was priced at USD$55, with fans clamouring for a re-release.

On Monday (July 8), Nicks and Mattel announced a limited re-release, once again priced at $55. The item went on sale immediately, and is now sold out. It is currently unclear if the treasured item will be restocked again in the future.

After unveiling the doll last year, Nicks revealed to fans at her concert at Madison Square Garden on October 1 that she had been working on it with Mattel for a year, and that the doll had been travelling with her to gigs for three months.

“When I look at her I see my 27 year old self,” the singer said, adding that she also sees everything she’s been through since 1975. “I am her and she is me.” Nicks showed the doll to fans and gifted it to a person named Sara in the audience, which also prompted her to sing a few lines of the Fleetwood Mac song of the same name.

In other Nicks-related news, the singer-songwriter most recently has had to postpone her upcoming show in Manchester today (July 9) after sustaining a leg injury. The former Fleetwood Mac singer did confirm that her BST Hyde Park show in London on July 12 is still scheduled to go ahead, but said she would have to move the two preceding gigs as she requires a “minor surgical procedure”.

In a statement issued to social media, Nicks’ team advised all ticket holders for Glasgow and Manchester to “hold on to their tickets” as rescheduled dates would be announced soon.
