    Wow, it’s great that there’s an Asian doll/action figure, but what is he wearing? His outfit is straight out of The Matrix! Maybe we should call him Keanu Barbie. And what’s happening on top of his head? I’m terribly confused…

    For half a second, I thought, “Hey, he looks a little bit like Ken Watanabe!” (But then I’ve got Ken Watanabe on the brain lately.)
