The 3rd W Club Exclusive doll of the membership year is a mini gift set with Lukas Maverick starring as the Weekender. Designed by Jessy Ayala, the set includes two outfits and a hoard of accessories, for the price of $180.00, which, considering the price hikes this year, is quite good. Still 2 dolls left for the membership to complete the roster. Lukas is quite popular with collectors, so it is no surprise he is again the male character offered to the club - even though there are so many more to pick from.

I really do love Lukas and it is great to add a new on to the collection but I wish we were getting a different guy for this set (Takeo, are you there? - Darius, are you still trying to find your proper face?). And yes, a non-Caucasian guy would have been so much better. Still, he comes with two outfits - or rather a variety of separates and a suit, to make him really versatile. The suit is very similar to the one worn by Chain Of Command Natalia, although this one does not have a military vibe at all (crew cut notwithstanding), but drawing on the same McQueen inspiration. They would look interesting together. His shoes are of course the Monolith Prada boots, a must for all fashionistas. I love the V front of his pants, they must have a Velcro closure, otherwise it would be near impossible to have a zip underneath. The mesh tank top is reminiscent of the International Male catalogues of the 80s, not that there were not mesh tops before that of course. And the overall vibe is like a more discreet Maluma on a weekend in Miami.
The doll is like a mix of Rock Ringmaster and Tantric Lukas, both very popular versions of the character. I love the way they painted the brows at the end - it could either be extra hairs or a shaved brow - maybe even a scar? He definitely gives bad boy vibes - Lukas was never accused of being vanilla. He’s surely coming home. Can we please see more of this kind of sets for the current prices?
