The Hunger Games' Katniss Everdeen, as embodied by Jennifer Lawrence, has dueled with some of the most ruthless and lethal Tributes this side of Panem.

But we bet nothing could've prepared her to slug it out with her toughest adversary yet: Kate Middleton!

Both pop-culture icons have now been immortalized as Barbie dolls, which means Kate's tiara will be going up against Katniss' bow and arrow for the attention—and moola—of fans everywhere.

Prepare for a battle royale! Here's how they stack up…

Kate's doll is the picture of perfection, all decked out in the Duchess of Cambridge's now-iconic lace wedding dress by Sarah Burton for Alexander Mcqueen.

As for the requisite bells and whistles, she's got that covered. Tiara? Check! Pendant earrings? You got it! Bridal bouquet? Toss that baby away, pronto!

Katniss, on the other hand, goes for a more, er, rugged look—you know, an easy wash-and-wear kinda frock that quickly rinses off the blood of maimed and bludgeoned tweens.

Put it this way: If Anna Wintour were to conjure a magazine spread about Panem's fall-season battle-to-the-death must-haves, then this stylish ensemble—gray cargo pants, charcoal windbreaker, brown boots—would have the Capitol's gentry Vogue-ing for a swath of it.

So who's the victor? It all comes down to the weaponry: Katniss has her trusty bow and arrow.

Unfortunately, that may prove no match for Kate's weapon of mass destruction: Prince William! Yep, each Kate Middleton Barbie comes with her own dashing Prince William Ken doll, able to slay hearts with a single pearly white grin. Whoosh!

(Also, the Will and Kate dolls just sold out.)

Sorry, Katniss, better luck next time—good thing you've got sequels!
