"The X-Files" Barbie dolls celebrate the long-running series with toy versions of Special Agents Dana Scully and Fox Mulder, who each wear their signature dark suit “FBI” ID badges.

Each Barbie comes packaged with a doll stand and certificate of authenticity.

In further celebration, Fox has launched a fan contest on that invites "X-Philes" to submit their own trivia questions involving the various mythologies, conspiracy theories and memorable Mulder and Scully moments. Participants will be given a chance to qualify for exclusive “X-Files” prize packs and have their questions included in “The Truth is Out There Trivia Contest.” The deadline for submissions is Sept. 6.

On Sept. 10, the series’ formal anniversary, fans who answer the most questions correctly before the contest closes on Sept. 17 will automatically be entered to receive “The X-Files” 25th Anniversary Prize Pack–which consists of the Barbie "The X-Files" Agent Fox Mulder and Barbie "The X-Files" Agent Dana Scully dolls.
