Mattel has just unveiled their newest line of “Fashionistas” Ken dolls, and the internet is pretty much freaking out. Billed by Mattel as the “Next Gen Ken,” the ultra-hip new Kens come in a range of hairstyles that include a man bun and corn rows, with clothing options that include a hoodie, spiked metallic silver hightops, and LOTS of plaid. In addition, to continue to promote diversity in their Barbie line, the new Kens come in a range of skin tones as well.

“By continuing to expand our product line, we are redefining what a Barbie or Ken doll looks like to this generation,” Barbie senior vice president and general manager Lisa McKnight said in a statement. “Evolving Ken was a natural evolution for the brand and allows girls to further personalize the role they want him to play in Barbie’s world.” [Ouch – I think Lisa seriously slipped up there by assuming that only girls play with Barbie and Ken dolls.]

In total, there are 18 different Ken doll and outfit combos available with 3 options for just clothing. The dolls cost $9.99 individually, $16.99 in a two pack, or $23.99 for a three pack. The clothing-only sets are $4.99.

In addition to the clothing, skin tone, and hair style options, the dolls also come in three body types: slim, broad, and original. Here are side-by-side photos of the Slim and Broad versions of man bun Ken:
