Fashionista Ken

I picked up 2 pink bow tie Fashionista kens to hold as a body donor for the newer ones with no knee joints. I havent seen the new ones in stores yet so I figured I get some old ones now before they're long gone.
After I debox them I  notice something odd. I already had one in my personal collection and brought him out to compare with the 2. One of the new one has dark blonde hair with no highlights, looks like a variant or the factory ran out of hair for the highlights.  I dont know if you can see it in the picture, saran hair sure is shiny!

The variant is in the middle, even though they are the same doll each one looks different.

New Ken fashions are out and Im shocked with this one. Its only ONE outfit and should be in the smaller pack for $6. Its such a waste of packing material and its so not worth the amount! What was Mattel thinking!? I suppose its extra pieces since the vest is not sewn on the shirt, which is always sewn onto the pants (like all the suits M made so far) a one piece and a jacket  but still, seriously?!

Is it just me or does Mattel infantalize Ken's clothes? They are like one-piece sets - onesies, lol - with the top and the pants sewn together. What happened to separate pants and tops?

Who knows, its cheaper and easier to dress would be my guess. In Mattel eyes they are made for little girls..

I thought I wanted the set in the picture. I went to Walmart, looked at it and realised that, as you said, it's ONE OUTFIT! Nope nope nope. I think it was the back illustration that had made me think it was three or at the very least two. Optical illusion pants.
