First Look: Barbie Signature X-Files Scully and Mulder Dolls

It’s been 20 years since Mattel released the first ever X-Files Mulder and Scully Barbie gift set featuring the spooky duo in conjunction with the very first X-Files movie, all the way back in 1998.

There were two versions of the gift set produced, the first and rarer version, was quickly pulled from shelves because it was deemed that Scully’s hair was too long and promptly replaced with a second release with shorter hair.

Fast forward 20 years later and the first images of new brand new Mulder and Scully Barbie Signature dolls have leaked online showcasing brand new sculpts of the duo made specially for this release.

Each doll is packaged separately and while not 100% confirmed, may seem to include some points of articulation.  Both are dressed in screen accurate outfits from the show along with ID and FBI badges,

Slated to release later this month, one of the Scully dolls has already appeared on eBay (where the images came from) so it can’t be too soon before we see them hit our local retailers!

Sonya and Hadil Revealed as MKR Booted Contestants.

“Assholes!”  It’s the final vitriolic word screamed out across the table from My Kitchen Rules contestant Sonya before judges Pete Evans and Manu Fidel stepped in to defuse the situation by finally kicking Sonya and Hadil from the Ultimate Instant Restaurant table.

That shocking moment had been milked for advertising the show by the 7 network even before the current series had started back in January of this year and was the final blow up event that had been building up between the Jordanian besties and sisters Emma and Jess over the course of the year.

After a minor altercation the night prior at Henry and Anna’s ‘super instant restaurant’ in Tasmania, tensions between the two teams came to an explosive conclusion when Sonya and Hadil went on the attack once again, with their sights set firmly on the sisters.

Starting off with under-the-breath-but-loud-enough-for-all-to-hear quips about the sisters still being in the competition it wasn’t long before Emma and Jess had stopped biting their tongues and bit back leaving other teams stunned silent.

Stella, Jazzey and Josh even attempted to step in and call out Sonya and Hadil for their poor behavior before finding themselves on the receiving end of a tongue lashing resulting in Sonya stating “I will come for you, and you and you” pointing her witchy poo finger at the three.

Meanwhile, poor Kim and Suong, the night’s cooks, are left standing in the kitchen unable to serve their quickly cooling mains as the drama unfolded.

It was only when Jess had excused herself from the table and Sonya began to call everyone a bunch of “assholes” that judges stepped in and removed Sonya and Hadil not only from the table, reminding the teams that the focus should be on the cooking and not the drama.

So will Sonya and Hadil be back for the next Ultimate Instant Restaurant?  Find out on the next episode of My Kitchen Rules!
