Toy manufacturer Mattel has immortalised Tina Turner in plastic.


"Barbie is proud to honor the unmatched career of the "Queen of Rock 'n Roll" with a @TinaTurner Barbie doll," the brand shared on Instagram, adding that "collectors and music fans alike can celebrate the music icon with the new Signature #Barbie doll".


The doll celebrates Tina's career plus her smash hit What's Love Got to Do with It from her fifth studio album, Private Dancer



The track was Tina's first and only US number one. The GoldenEye singer took home three awards for it — including Record of the Year, Song of the Year, and Best Female Pop Vocal Performance — at the 1985 Grammys. 


The doll's outfit pays homage to the song by recreating Turner's ensemble from its music video. Mini Tina sports a leather mini dress, denim jacket, black heels and drop earrings. Plus massive '80s hair, of course.
