In the meantime, I found an interesting alternative while googling possible leads re: Mystery Simba Lady. Meet Cool Kevin, the latest incarnation of Steffi Love's boyfriend:
|Running makes you cool! So does wearing plaid shirts.|
Simba is a German brand, and from what I've heard Steffi Love doesn't seem to be widely sold in the US. Stores here have Steffi but no articulated Kevins, so I haven't seen him in the plastic, as it were, but from photos (here are a few) he seems to have pretty good articulation for a fashion doll. Elbows, wrists, knees - and hinged ankles, just like the articulated Steffi body. Hopefully the Fashionista Ken will arrive and I'll be able to compare them.
I've found him at a pretty good price online and will probably get one as soon as I can decide which one. I really like the plaid shirt, but I hate the yellow hair, and I do not need another project on my endless list of repaint projects (which is endless mostly since I haven't, you know, actually repainted anything yet). We'll see.
In other news, Mystery Simba Lady is still unidentified. Why didn't I take German in high school??
