Elvis and Priscilla Presley wedding dolls unveiled

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) -- Barbie and Ken have a new look.

Managers of Elvis Presley's house in Memphis -- Graceland -- unveiled a new collectors set of Elvis and Priscilla Presley wedding day dolls on Tuesday.

The event was part of a weeklong lineup of events marking the anniversary of Presley's death on Aug. 16, 1977, at Graceland.

The Elvis and Priscilla dolls are dressed like the couple was at their wedding.

The set by Mattel -- the maker of the popular Barbie dolls -- retails for $65.

One, signed by Priscilla, was auctioned Tuesday, fetching $6,000. The buyer was Brenda Moore of Bentonville, Ark.

Another 190 were sold at Graceland, all bearing a special stamp denoting the occasion.

The set will go on sale to the general public later this year.
