Keeping Ken Other Male Fashion/Action Dolls

In 2003, Mattel added new girlfriend Nolee™, along with My Scene™ boys Bryant™ and Hudson™.   

The second male doll to appear in the line, My Scene™ Hudson™ falls into a well-scripted image from Mattel.  Most collector's like to "know" their doll's character, simply because it makes the doll more interesting.  Believe me, I want to know everything! But My Scene™ doesn't need it.  My Scene™ Hudson™ is the "sports-interested" character; one who is mainly concerned with the sport and competitiveness that a game of Soccer provides. Other My Scene™ male dolls will also fall into well-scripted images from Mattel.

My Scene™ Hudson™ is Caucasian, and shares some same box text as My Scene Bryant :  "whether you're catching rays at the beach or glances at school, looking good is always in style".  Unlike Bryant™ (who is already being tied romantically with My Scene™ Nolee™), My Scene™ Hudson™ is romantically tied to My Scene™ Chelsea® in a "Night out on the Town" gift set that is available Fall 2003.

More about Hudson doll is uncovered in the late December 2003 Jammin' in Jamaica DVD (sold with the female Jammin' in Jamaica dolls).  We learn he is a member of the band "Urban Desire".  Other band mates include My Scene River, Ellis and Sutton.  My Scene Madison writes the lyrics for the bands songs.  Hudson is drums, percussion and background vocals.  In the video, his romantic tie with Chelsea isn't really explored.


Hudson doll's romantic outlook stays the same in Spring 2004 when he goes out on a date with Chelsea doll again in the Out & About Chelsea™ and Hudson™ Gift Set. This version and another single version, Getting Ready/Out With The Girls Hudson™, are both available with new "smiling" head molds.  Interestingly, both versions take the boys' point of view, as Hudson doll's characterization is explored further as he readies himself for a real and impromptu date.  His sport-minded characterization is especially enforced in the single version, while the gift set version concentrates on the element of a chance encounter.  Out of all the My Scene™ boys, Hudson isn't in any hurry to make an official relationship commitment.

SORRY... in this section I will only give information about HUDSON™.  Highlighted boxes are the Hudson™ dolls I keep.

"What's every girl's fondest wish? According to you, 9 innings of baseball, and the way this game is going, some overtime too.  But what makes this afternoon really special isn't how tiny the players look from way up here, or how that guy behind you keeps shouting instructions at them.  It's the sweet, sweet fact that you got these tickets for free.  Who cares if you had to hike up 20 flights of stairs and the nearest bathroom is half a mile away?

You're Hudson™, a My Scene™ kinda guy."
