Fun bit of info - Bowie was reading Arthur C. Clarke's Childhood's End when writing this album, and it's very likely that songs like "Five Years" and "Let the Children Boogie" are based on it.

The collectible doll, which can be purchased for $50, pays homage to Bowie's iconic Ziggy Stardust persona from the 1970s. The character later evolved into the era of Aladdin Sane.
