Barbie Terminator

  [vote for,

Expose this Barbie Doll to the roaring flame of a MAPP gas torch and watch as the frivolous plastic exterior and clothing melts and burns away, revealing the virtually indestructible stainless steel internal Terminator Doll.

(may require lots of scraping away of carbonised plastic and polishing to totally shine up the previously hidden miniature cyborg)

       A great way to show that girls can be strong on the inside!

       I'd watch it burn, once. So a "sort a" bun.

       Go on, have another one. [+]

       My brother burnt my action man at the stake. He's funny like that.

       Envisions a 'Terminator vs. 6 Million Dollar Man' miniseries.

       Better would be a soft plastic peelaway skin. Because little kids might catch on fire or get hot melted plastic on them, and that is no good.   

       And if you are going to go that route Barbie might as well have skeleton, guts, innards. It would be ironic since exterior parts are not anatomically correct but you do what you can.

       Could the exterior be papier-mâché? This would be just as blowtorchable but without the toxic fumes.

       I think she needs to be made of a material that has stretchy, flexible properties to allow for proper limb movements etc.

       Or Alien Barbie?   

       (With Sigourney Weaver head replacement - First play French Revolution, and guillotine Marie Antoinette, then put on the other head for Alien. Tomorrow revive Marie for Zombie Inferno game.)

       It's probably no surprise that this type of toy has already been cashed-in on, albeit without the Barbie exterior. There was a Terminator toy which featured a flesh-coloured goo and a big plunger that let you injection-mold a new skin around the robot skeleton before tearing it off again. I've no idea what the relative inflammability of the goo / robot were.
mitxela, Apr 16 2014

       Taking the bungstonian approach further: the innards-n-all Barbie could be a form of mass produced Vaucanson-style automata which replicates at least one human function as well as the form, with that function operating not as would be the norm for a typically-proportioned human but as would be the norm for a person who has a Barbie's proportions: a smaller lower torso leading to a narrower and likely shorter intestinal tract and colon, Barberian shits being, I'd hazard, closer to 6 or 7 on the Bristol stool scale than the average human would desire. This of course sets aside the fact that Barbie's arsehole is so out of proportion that it doesn't exist and therefore any poo that was created by this automata would collect beneath its frivolous plastic exterior, adding a new dimension to the act of burning off her skin.

       This idea was pretty well baked ca 1990 in a licenced toy that let you mold pinkish flesh over a not-very-well articulated plastic (simulated metal?) endoskeleton using packs of oatmealish stuff disolved in water.   

       Arguably irresponsibly for a toy targeting 8-12 YOs, once dry, the pink stuff burned pretty energetically, as, alas, did the crappy plastic endoskeleton. It also tended to tear off after a few minutes of play handling, calling for another 30 min in its plastic "regenerator" vat. Not really a popular or successful toy, but one my kid picked out of a Toys R Us lineup.

       ~1% of these could include a baby terminator in barbie's womb.
sophocles, Apr 16 2014

       Make it a mystery as to what you get when you burn her.   

       ~20% of them should burn to just dust. Showing, that some people have really nothing inside.   

       ~10% should burn & reveal a man inside.
