Hey Gang,So, I wanted to post my new doll sooner. I wanted to show him in my last post.
But yet again, I lost the charger for my camera. You would have thought that I
would have learned my lesson by now. Put the charger where you can find it!
No, I spend several days trying to find it and wondering if I will have to order another.
Any way, I open the box and took him out. I knew right away that I made a mistake!
I should have purchased more of them. I only hope that they get more in stock!
I could feel myself smiling as I looked at him. He was just what I wanted. I
haven't torn into a guy that way in a long time Oh yes, your packaging must come off!
I took him from is packaging.
Great face! I have learned with my last purchase from Barbie.com to look at the
item closely. There were some clothing problems with my Jean Basics AA Ken.
I learned later from Vanessa of Van's Doll Treasures that I could have gotten a
credit or something for that.
Johnny Depp doll. I just realized that I never posted about it when I
purchased my Harley Ken doll! So let check out the outfit!
expensive. The ATM that would normally be an iron on but in this case, it is not.
It also has elastic on the bottom to keep it from rising up. when he sits.
The pants are well made with real pockets and a belt. The pants don't
have that tight fit that many of the fashionista male pants do.
The sneaker are cute too.
I they they look like the type that Remi would wear.
Oh, and he does look good from behind!
Next let's check him out compared to Barbie basic #17!
If you are not familiar with Barbie Basic Ken #17 you can view my
older post. I waited a long time for # 17 and I am glad I got this one so
So here is the two dolls side by side!
You can see that Brandon( #17) is still feel nervous about his place around here.
His head is tilted to the side.
Black doll Collecting posted pictures from one of her doll friends,
Cynthia, not so long ago. I checked back to her post to note what she said.
I find that even with the same doll,some things are different. Especially when you
have foreign manufacturers. Both Debbie and Cynthia note that on the dolls
Cynthia had, the head of the new doll was wider, the top lip seemed fuller
and the hair was darker. In my comparison it was different.
I think the hair line on my Texas A&M is higher The hair color is about
the same and the lips have a shine to them. The eyeliner is more defined. For me
the most notable difference is that the complexions are a little different. A&M is a
little darker. Not by much but a little. I noticed it in the body too!
It is not so much of a difference that a head swap is out of the question. It is very subtle.
Alright it is time for the money shots!
Warning!! Nude dolls ahead!
Ms. Leo: Fellows, as dolls here you will sometimes take nude photos. It is for educational purposes.
They are trying to to look at each other!
Ms. Leo: You will note the difference in body color.
The hip joints are different. I makes him look good in pants.
Ms. Leo: Behinds from behind!
The neck knobs are a different color too!
Ken is nervous. He thinks he might end up on the dollpage. He maybe right.
Ms. Leo: Hey, where do you think your gonging?
Brandon: I going to find Khadijah!
Ms. Leo: But we aren't finished with comparisons! We still have other dolls to compare you to!
Brandon: That will have to be for next time.
Ms. Leo: Oh, so you get a new body and you get new on me huh?
Brandon: I'll be back. Don't worry!
Ms. Leo: Now I'm nervous.
OK, until next time!
