Everyone’s favorite annoying best friend, Barb, is finally getting the LEGO minifigure treatment she deserves, but you’ll have to attend San Diego Comic-Con to get your hands on this exclusive collectible.
The recently released LEGO Stranger Things playset of a small scale Byers house (and its Upside Down version) included eight minifigs. Missing from the set, however, was the fan-favorite Barb. Well, it seems that Netflix and LEGO have finally found her!
LEGO officially unveiled today a Barb minifigure, complete with her mom shirt and thick-rimmed glasses. As if she wouldn’t be in demand enough, the minifig will unfortunately be exclusive to San Diego Comic-Con, which means you’ll either have to attend the convention next week or pay a hefty price from a second-hand seller online.

Despite being killed off unceremoniously early on in season one of the show, Barb became an instant cult icon – spawning murals, GIFs, and listicles – and a symbol for friendship. While her disappearance in the first season was pretty much swept under the rug, Matt and Ross Duffer finally gave Barb, her friends, and her family some closure in season two.
Stranger Things Season 3 debuted on Netflix this month, breaking multiple viewership records for the streaming service.
