Barbie Twilight Jacob
With the immense popularity of the second Twilight movie,
New Moon, it was inevitable that a Barbie
Twilight Jacob doll would be released. Jacob had a small
role in the first movie, but has a very prominent role in New
Moon. In the movie we get an insight into his feelings for
Bella and more about his family. The movie details the
confusion that Bella feels when Edward leaves and how Jacob

The doll retails at $24.95. It is sure to be a popular
toy or collectible doll given the success of the film and the
affection that many fans of the movie hold for Jacob. Much of
the promotion for the film was asking fans to choose between
Edward and Jacob (much like Bella has to do). And many fans
chose to side with Jacob. So for those fans of team Jacob, a
Jacob doll is a chance to get something tangible.
The doll itself is thought to be modeled on the actor Taylor
Lautner, who plays Jacob in the movie. From the first pictures
of the doll, it seems that they have made the face similar to
Taylor's face. I guess the nose is the most obvious distinctive
feature. It is a little snubby. The doll also has his dark,
short cut hairstyle. There is a tattoo on his right shoulder.
The outfit that comes with the Jacob doll seems a bit minimal.
It has a pair of cut off jeans or shorts and sneakers. This is
in keeping with his outfit in New Moon but there is not much to

The Jacob Barbie Doll will be the third Pink Label Barbie
Twilight Dolls release after

Background on Jacob Black.
Jacob Black features in all the books and movies in the
Twilight series. He features most in the second and third books
and has minor roles in the first and fourth. He is very
different in the books to the character in the movie. For
instance, he is described as being lanky and tall in the books
but he is not that tall in the movies. This is mainly because
he is played by Taylor Lautner who is not that big, although he
put on lots of weight in order to take on the part but his
height is not going to change that much.
His family and Bella Swan's family (father) are friends. He
helps Bella settle into the Forks area when she first arrives
and helps her out at school.
He is descended from Native American Quileute tribe. He is
also referred to as a shapeshifter which allows him to change
from human form to that of a werewolf.
