Brotherly love in playscale: finding diversity in fashion dolls and action figures from the 1960s to now: Barbie, Fashion Royalty, Momoko, Susie, GI Joe, Power Team, Mixis.
Hmmm...that's tough. There are a couple that remind me of Ken's legs. I'm gonna guess, the pair of legs on the far left?
Yes, the legs on the far left are Ken legs!Bing, bing, bing! First win to Tracy India!
My guess (left to right) #1, 4 and 5. I don't think I have ever inspected Ken legs so closely before.
Good guess, Kim! Actually, only 1 and 4 are Ken legs. One is Rocker Ken; four is Magic Jewel Ken. Five is Integrity Toys' Tariq. He has bend legs like the Kens do/did. (That's what struck me, when I "borrowed" his pants for the poser Ken photo. Legolas Ken wore Tariq's pants. I was surprised that they fit since Tariq's leg pose is closer to that of the bend leg Kens ... sort of a triangle/tripod or letter A.)My Kens feel a little hurt that you never looked at their legs before - ;-D - but they are willing to overlook the unintended slight to their ahem "fine" physique.(Okay, they've slipped away. Hot Toys guys have the best legs for muscular legs. Kens can have sort of chubby legs or thin legs. The posers are better than the old school 1960s Kens or the chubby 1970s+ bend legs. IMHO. God, I am commenting about Ken's legs! At length. Tsk.)
I am glad that you made this post about legs. I think doll makers don't emphasize that part of sculpt, but action figure makers do. Maybe doll makers see the doll body as a one big hangar for clothes and action figure makers see the body as part of play.
