A new David Bowie Barbie doll is about to hit store shelves. 

On Wednesday, the toy brand – owned by Mattel – released a second David Bowie doll in its Signature Collection.

In its announcement provided to Fox News Digital, Mattel said the doll’s release is meant to honor the 50th anniversary of the release of Bowie’s album "Hunky Dory," which was originally released on Dec. 17, 1971.

"David Bowie was a one-man cultural phenomenon for his contributions to music, art, fashion, and film – and the doll is a tribute to the pop legend who continue to be recognized as a cultural vanguard," Mattel said in its announcement.

"Barbie first honored Bowie three years ago by recreating his Ziggy Stardust alter ego, complete with space suit and makeup effects in doll form," the company added.
