(CNN) -- Elton John is getting his very own Barbie doll. And while the doll won't look like the Rocket Man, it will be styled in his likeness.
The limited-edition Barbie doll, which was released on Mattel's website on Thursday, will have a glittery top and flared denim complete with the singer's initials.
Her multi-colored "Elton" bomber jacket has stars on its sleeves and rainbow stripes on its hem. She will also have rainbow-patterned platform boots, a purple bowler hat and Elton's signature sparkly pink sunglasses.
"The Elton John Barbie doll is a bold collaboration that personifies two cultural icons and honors the extraordinary artistry and musicianship of a stellar performer," the doll's description on the Mattel website reads.
So, what's the occasion?
The doll, which retails for $50, was released to mark the 45th anniversary of the singer's record-breaking two-day performance at the Dodgers Stadium in October 1975.
At the time, the 100,000 attendees made it the largest concert ever for a single artist.
"Barbie is an icon in her own right, so having her pay tribute to my work and personal style is a real honor," Elton John told Rolling Stone. "I hope that she inspires fans everywhere to fearlessly pursue their own dreams and limitless potential."
