This is a special sculpt, in a way. Ken got an update just as Barbie did, in
the late 1970's. As Barbie got the new SuperStar face, ken needed to be
spruced up as well. He got a new haircut (well, molded ditto) with a right
side part and long bangs. What can't be seen on any of my dolls, since I
don't have the SuperStar Ken himself, is that his head is pierced! Tha hair
is so long it covers his ears and the SS Ken came with a pair of glasses.
Said glasses was insterted into his skull! They gave the impression of
resting on his ears, under the hair. Upon inspection, one can tell where the
holes are supposed to be.
Ken has a huge smile and deep dimples. He is just a happy guy :)

Bought him loose in a lot but I think he is SL Malibu.

Another loose lot doll, still I think he is RS Ken.

Todd appeared only once - and a good
thing he did, when he did. This is Todd, to be husband of Tracy. Groom Todd
had the SuperStar Ken sculpt with the hair painted a dark brown. What
differs from Ken, is his brown eyes.

Heart Family Dad
The Caucasian version of the Heart Family
Dad also had the SuperStar Ken face. He is usually painted a dull, medium
brown color, otherwise he looks like Ken. These dolls have a ring molded on
their left hand ring finger - but bodies can be swapped (I used to have a
Derek with a Daddy Heart body!).
