There was no image and little information on the internet regarding this Barbie Doll, so my interest was piqued.

I wasn’t sure if this Barbie would only be available in Japan or worldwide, but if what I gathered is correct, I believe there will be two versions (Black Label & Platinum Label) of the Barbie Loves Tokidoki Doll.
1 for Asian Countries
1 for North America I suspect that the Purple version is for Asian countries and the Pink version is for North America.

(Click here to view official images of the Pink Barbie)
Estimated Retail price:
Purple ¥12,960 about $104.00
If you missed out on the Original Tokidoki Barbie Collaboration than this is the perfect opportunity to bring home a piece of Barbie history and Tokidoki history.
This doll is in celebration of Tokidoki’s 10th year in business!
Where To Order
Amiami quickly sold out. (As of 9/17/15 they have re-stocks Rakuten shop)
So far Entertainment Earth is the only retail store where you can pre-order the pink version, click the pre-order link to order her! (As of 9/19/15 Temporarily Out of Stock)
The Barbie Collection
(They have a release count down page for her) (Currently Sold Out As of 9/2/15 11:30 pm)
Windy City Dolls (You can submit your email to sign up to be notified for when she’s available to order at this shop)
Tokidoki (Sold Out As of 9/4/15)
Tiny Frock Shop
There is also eBay
If you are at all interested in adding either of these girls to your collection, I would highly recommend you get them while you can because there is a possibility that she maybe as popular as the 1st Tokidoki Barbie (avg price on eBay $545.00)

Update August 28, 2015
The Purple version of Barbie is a Platinum Label which means she will be hard to obtain 🙁
The Platinum Label version was randomly sent to select retailers, so you have to wait till September 1, 2015 to see which retailer will offer the Platinum Label Barbie doll.
You can read more about her and have the opportunity to order this version here
If you were unable to get the Platinum Tokidoki Barbie you can find her on eBay, sadly she’s priced waaaay above the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price of $75. 🙁
