Call me crazy, but I don’t like him. His fashions are cute, but he is just plain boring. There is something about the male dolls from Mattel in the last years that just don’t do anything for me. Look at the guys from the Dynamite Girls series for example!
Almost the same price range but Auden is sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo much better looking than this Ken. I’m sorry if you think I’m being harsh or something but I’m just dissapointed. Looks like I’m in aminority here because most collectors seem to like him but for me he’s a big no, no.
