Twilight stars Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart have been immortalised forever - as Barbie dolls.

The stars of the hit vampire films - who play ill-fated lovers vampire Edward Cullen and teenager Bella Swan - have been reproduced as dolls to celebrate the DVD release of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1 on March 12, 2012.

The film sees love-struck teen Bella marry her immortal lover Edward, and the dolls come dressed up for the wedding, with a miniature wisteria arbour beneath which they can exchange their vows.

Unlike a traditional Ken doll with a glowing California tan and a brilliant white smile, the replica of R-Patz is deathly pale in his traditional wedding tux, complete with dark, brooding frown.

Kristen's doll has a veil and replica of Bella's lacy wedding dress.

Kristen - who is dating co-star R-Patz in real life - previously admitted it had been emotional watching their wedding scenes in the film.

She said: "It's a trip to watch the wedding scenes especially. It was so volatile and emotional - I was being such a crazy person."

Robert and Kristen will be reunited on-screen for the epic finale of the trilogy, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2, released in cinemas in November.
