The first sign of the new Jem doll line appeared very suddenly after it was announced. It was a Jem doll to be released as a special San Diego Comic Con exclusive. Jem fans were surprised by the new look and unknowing what else was to come. It was a struggle to get one of these limited edition dolls only available at the San Diego Comic Con. Jem fans who were used to slowly building their collections with items available since the 80's, were subjected to new products, and how to get ahold of very limited edition dolls. You were forced to reach someone who was going to the convention, or pre-order on ebay.

Soon after that, the first actual wave of dolls of this new line were announced, and collectors were pre-ordering like crazy from the companies that were listed as official Integrity Toys dealers. Jem and Jerrica were released as separate dolls, and we even got Rio and Synergy in this first wave.

The first doll released was an interpretation of Hollywood Jem, available for purchase at the HasbroToyShop booth #3329 during Comic-Con International in San Diego July 12-15 2012 for $135, where the limited edition of only 500 dolls sold out very quickly. And following the convention, the doll was to be sold at www.HasbroToyShop.com, but apparently only made a very quick appearance before the remaining few dolls sold out there aswell.

An issue of the Haute Doll magazine with the scoop about the new line had a cover variant featuring Jem, which was only available at the SDCC. Another giveaway at the Comic Con was a card with 80's art of the Glitter 'n Gold roadster, and advertisements from WeLoveFine.com, ShoutFactory.com and spirithalloween.com on the back.

In August, 2012, Integrity Toys announced the four upcoming dolls Classic Jem, Jerrica Benton, Synergy and Rio Pacheco, which were then revealed on the official Jem doll site on October 5. The dolls are made in a limited edition from 750-1000 dolls of each. They were available for purchase at a suggested retail price of US$119.00 each via Integrity Toys’ network of authorized dealers and at the stores of Holt Renfrew in Canada in late November, 2012. However, pre-orders were made by many Jem fans, and the dolls were sold out just about everywhere already the first day they were announced.

    Hollywood Jem is dressed in awesome 80s fashion and making impressions wherever she goes be it the beaches of Malibu, shopping in Beverly Hills or a big movie premiere on Sunset Strip. Totally outrageous, stylish and hip that's Hollywood Jem!

    This new doll, the first one in the Integrity Toys line, is the first Jem doll ever that has pink hair and not also blonde. A very recognizable hairstyle, as for the cartoon, rather than the all long and straight 80's doll hairstyle. They went with a later cartoon makeup-scheme, and distinct black eyebrows, and the new and more adult looking head sculpt gives her a more mature look. She is wearing a fashion that is known from the cartoon and they made it as glittery and detailed as possible, which makes it a perfect introduction to Jem at it's Comic-Con debute. According to Hasbro and Integrity Toys, this outfit is one of the most requested animated-based looks.

    In my opinion, they did a great job on choosing an original cartoon outfit that also has a modern look. Looking at this doll after the upcoming Jem dolls of this line have arrived, I can say the new look may have gotten slightly a little too bashed, by collectors who weren't used to this kind of high quality fashion doll. We've now seen all kinds of interpretations of Jem's looks and as I look back on this doll, I can see they did a great job already to begin with. Skin tone FR White.

    Certificate of authenticity.

    Instructions: Hands/stand/microphone version that says "Hollywood Jem".

    Interpretations:
    Cartoon: Introduced in the episode "One Jem Too Many". The most Jem-like hairstyle ever, with pink hair and no blonde. So it's closer to the cartoon than the 80's dolls. Makeup is very similar colorwise to the makeup Jem wears with this fashion in the cartoon, but while the eyebrows are more distinct on the doll, the makeup is slightly softer than in the cartoon. The outfit is not the same as the 80's unreleased Hollywood Jem doll, but an earlier outfit that did appear in the Hollywood Jem two-parter, and has become known as "Hollywood Jem", originally because of a Doll Reader magazine article from 1989 by Glenn A. Mandeville. But I'll compare with the cartoon fashion it was created after. The doll's jacket and pants are glittery, unlike the cartoon version. The jacket looks slightly longer in the cartoon. The stars on the doll pants are golden instead of white. The shoes in the cartoon are perhaps a little more blueish than black. Infact Jem barely wears any black in the series. The earrings look alot like in the cartoon, more than on the 80's dolls of course, but only one of them have the "bulb" while the other is blank. The bracelets were not present in the cartoon.

    In a world of glamour, glitter, fashion and fame, the lead singer of famous 80’s girl glam band JEM AND THE HOLOGRAMS, the mysterious rock star simply known as JEM reigns supreme!

    Jem finally makes a comeback in her original pink ¾ sleeve mini-dress, the way most people recognize her. Again, like Hollywood Jem, this doll has all pink hair, but with less bangs. They went in a surprising direction with the minidress fabric, which appears to resemble the doll box artwork, rather than the 80's doll's bright metallic fabric. We also see a big change in her eyebrows, which was a very requested change from Jem fans to give her a softer expression, and so Integrity Toys made them blue, like sometimes seen in closeups in the cartoon. They also gave her the original cartoon pink eye-makeup instead of violet. Unlike the 80's version, the belt is not reversible, since Jerrica is released separately. Skin tone FR White. Edition limited to 1000 dolls. Sleeve front. Box front with sleeve. Box front. Box front top. Box front bottom. Box front side. Box front side with sleeve. Box front inside. Accessories. Liner. Liner close-up. Liner back. Box back inside. Box back. Box back with sleeve. Sleeve back.

    Picture. Picture 2. Picture 3. Picture 4. Picture 5. Picture 6. Picture 7. Picture 8. Picture 9. Picture 10.

    Contents:
    Hands: Dark pink nailpolish that matches the dress. Interchangeable. Palms.

    Extra hands: Same color of nail polish as the main hands. These are made to grip things like the microphone. Interchangeable. Palms.

    Earrings: Red metal starshaped. From here on all Jem star earrings are in the flat style without the "button".

    Mini-dress: Shiny fabric in a dark pink color. Consists of two fabrics. Back. Back open.

    Belt: Double layered silver glitter with silver fringes, and white leather-like fabric in opposite side. Doesn't reverse for Jerrica's outfit. Hook-and-eye closure in the back. Back.

    Tights: Sassy metallic fishnet stockings in pink and silver, with elastic waist.

    Shoes: Hot pink metallic pumps with pink insoles and beige outsoles.

    Bracelet: Metal silver-colored with a pink "gemstone". Hand must be removed to put on.

    Microphone: Pink plastic with chromed top, and includes cord that connects to the stand.

    Microphone stand and cord: Metal pole, inner part is made of metal while outer part is made of chromed plastic. Adjustable in height and at direction of the mike on top, to be placed in the round plastic base. A plastic/rubbery black cord, with golden chromed plastic connectors, to connect to the mike and stand.

    Stand: Oval black plastic base with colored print of the Jem logo and a hole on top to put in the pole, plus a couple of smaller holes on the sides to attach the cord. Text on the base bottom. Base has similar shape to the 80's Jem doll stand. Silver pole, adjustable in height, inner part is metal while outer part is chromed plastic. 2 alternative black plastic pieces to put on top of the pole to hold the doll, saddle support or underarmsupport. All dolls came with this stand, except the 2014 dolls' logo colors were just slightly adjusted, and Glitter 'n Gold Jem/Jerrica Benton and Rio who came with golden stands.

    Certificate of authenticity: A new certificate compared to Hollywood Jem. From here on it doesn't say the amount of dolls, just "ultra-limited edition".

    Instructions: Hands/stand/microphone/hair. Double-sided with French text on the other side. New look of the instruction sheet from here on. This one covers hands, stand and microphone, and now also hair.

    Interpretations:
    Cartoon: Introduced in the episode "The Beginning", although the fashion appeared in it's finished look in the episode "Starbright Part One: Falling Star". A big hairdo with all pink hair, much like in the cartoon. The blue eyebrows works out as a great fix for making Jem look nicer compared to Hollywood Jem. The makeup is stronger but still a bit soft compared to the cartoon and has some blue in it. Very accurate outfit. But interesting that they went for a fabric that more resembles the 80's doll artwork and is a bit darker in color. Unlike in the cartoon, Jem has tights like the 80's doll did. Accessories are always fun, even if Jem didn't have the bracelet in the cartoon for this outfit, which the 80's doll did.

    Charismatic music executive by day, truly outrageous rock star by night, JERRICA BENTON is a determined and driven individual! Using a cutting edge computer named SYNERGY capable of projecting highly realistic holographic images, JERRICA transforms into JEM using the holographic micro-projectors hidden inside her star shaped earrings!

    Finally we get to see Jerrica as a stand-alone doll, with a more correct hair length compared to the 80's doll, and without the need to hide the pink hair under a hat, although she does come with her hat. She has a nicer and softer looking makeup than the Jem dolls, making her look more natural than the rockstar Jem, and more Jerrica-like. The mini-dress seems to have an alot higher quality fabric than the 80's doll, and she even comes with some accessories like a new design of glasses, and a purse. Skin tone FR White. Edition limited to 850 dolls. Sleeve front. Box front with sleeve. Box front. Box front top. Box front bottom. Box front side. Box front side with sleeve. Box front inside. Accessories. Liner. Liner close-up. Liner back. Box back inside. Box back. Box back with sleeve. Sleeve back.

    Promotional pictures:
    Picture. Picture 2. Picture 3. Picture 4. Picture 5. Picture 6. Picture 7. Picture 8.

    Contents:
    Hands: Bright pink nailpolish. Interchangeable. Palms.

    Extra hands: Bright pink nailpolish. Gripping style. Interchangeable. For gripping things. Palms.

    Beret: White and aqua striped with a white ribbon around it, and a couple of short frignes at the top of the hat. Consists of three fabrics. Underside

    Dress: A white and aqua vertically striped shirtdress. Consists of two fabrics. White zipper closure in the back. Back. Back open.

    Belt: Double white leather-like fabric with white fringes. The fringes are thicker than those on the Classic Jem doll. Hook-and-eye closure in the back. Back.

    Tights: Skincolored with elastic waist.

    Shoes: Aquablue pumps with white insoles and beige outsoles.

    Earrings: Red metal starshaped. From here on all the dolls that came with similar earrings, didn't have the "button" on one of the earrings, but two flat ones. Perhaps Integrity Toys interpreted it as if only one earring had the ability to contact Synergy in the cartoon, and then realize that wasn't the case and decided to only produce flat ones for all upcoming dolls.

    Sunglasses: Blue metal sunglasses with brigth blue plastic lenses. These are very cool as the temples have hinges and are actually adjustable. But the plastic lenses are fragile and may come off.

    Purse: Beautifully designed in white pleather. Hook-and-eye closure. Consists of two fabrics. Back.


    Hat pins: A couple of short metal pins to fasten the hat in the head. Very hard to spot in the package and very easy to lose.

    Stand: Oval black plastic base with colored print of the Jem logo and a hole on top to put in the pole, plus a couple of smaller holes on the sides to attach the cord. Text on the base bottom. Base has similar shape to the 80's Jem doll stand. Silver pole, adjustable in height, inner part is metal while outer part is chromed plastic. 2 alternative black plastic pieces to put on top of the pole to hold the doll, saddle support or underarmsupport. All dolls came with this stand, except the 2014 dolls' logo colors were just slightly adjusted, and Glitter 'n Gold Jem/Jerrica Benton and Rio who came with golden stands.

    Minature Jem album: Cardboard record fits into cardboard cover.

    Music industry magazine: Cardboard, empty white on inside.

    Music Bizz Top 10 list: Cardboard, empty white on other side.

    Certificate of authenticity: Same as Classic Jem's.

    Instructions: Hands/stand. Double-sided, with French text on the other side. A third version of instructions, since this is the first doll to come without a microphone and stand. Same instructions as Synergy and Rio.

    Interpretations:
    Cartoon: Introduced in the episode "The Beginning", although the fashion appeared in it's finished look in the episode "Starbright Part One: Falling Star". Nice to see they went with a shorter length of the hair, and it could even have been a bit shorter still to resemble the cartoon even more. Blue eyebrows like in the cartoon, but the pink and blue eyemakeup is a bit different.

    Outfit looks very much like in the cartoon, and more than the 80's doll fashion does. But perhaps Jerrica never wore that beret in the cartoon (once the outfit had changed from pink/blue to white/blue that is). Same thing with the glasses, but those are appreciated accessories.

    I don't think the purse is based on anything seen in the cartoon. The magazine Music Bizz, resembles a magazine seen in the episode "In Search Of The Stolen Album", atleast as far as the Holograms being featured on a blue background and with the title written in pink letters over that black line with yellow edges. It also says "Hot" inside a yellow star in the cartoon, but inside a regular star. And it has the Jem logo. Integrity Toys added the date "July 1986" and "The #1 Band of the Decade!". As for the top list, Integrity Toys used other fonts on top, and removed the names "Rodents" and "Mundanna" and added "The Misfits" and "Luna Dark", which is funny because both Mundanna and Luna Dark are based on Madonna. This was probably because they didn't see the rest of the names, incase they referred to the episode "Glitter and Gold" where the magazine and toplist also appears.

  • 14023
    A highly advanced computerized artificial intelligence capable of projecting truer than life holographic 3D images, SYNERGY is the secret hidden behind JEM AND THE HOLOGRAM’s success! SYNERGY projects a lifelike hologram over JERRICA BENTON and instantly turns the charismatic music industry mogul into one of the 80’s most memorable and beloved characters, the truly outrageous JEM.

    Integrity Toys really starts of this line with a great example of what they can accomplish. Synergy is undoubtedly one of the most outrageous dolls of this line, with her bright violet skin she even stands out among the Jem dolls. Although she doesn't have sparkling strands in her hair like the 80's doll, her new glittering outfit more than makes up for it. She even comes with a mini box of earrings for Jerrica. And although she is not supposed to wear them herself, her ears are pierced. Edition limited to 750 dolls. Head sculpt was later used for the Astral doll, and also for a blonde doll called Jacqueline O'Rion which many Jem fans consider as an unofficial Jacqui Benton. Integrity Toys have later also re-used her skincolor on a doll of another line. Sleeve front. Box front with sleeve. Box front. Box front top. Box front bottom. Box front side.

    Contents:
    Hands: Chromed violet. Palms.

    Extra hands: Bright violet with red nailpolish that matches her lipstick. Palms.

    Headband: Metallic lavender.

    Bodysuit: Glittery holographic techno body, with printed areas of purple. Hook-and-eye closure in the back. Tag inside. Back. Back open.

    Bodysuit second part: Glittery holographic techno bodysuit, with printed areas of purple and pink and elastic bands for the feet. Tag inside. Underneath the body piece. Not recommended to be taken off, since it's so difficult to put back on it might break in all the seams around the waist. Tag inside. Back.

    Gloves: Chromed pink and violet, which are supposed to be put over the chromed hands. Matches the boots.

    Boots: Chromed pink and violet high-heels with black outsoles and white insoles. Pink zipper closure in the back. Matches the gloves.

    Miniature gift box: Made of cardboard. Containing a pair of JemStar earrings for Jerrica. Open. Underside.

    Earrings: Red metal starshaped.

    Miniature mastertape: Consists of four cardboard print layers. Says "Starlight Music", "Jacqui Benton Master Tape" and "Set 1, Take 1". Back.

    Main holographic transmitter logic board schematics: Cardboard print. Marked By Emmett Benton, June 1984.

    Jacqui Benton voice imprint from master tape 1: Cardboard print. Lists the songs: Starlight, First Love, My Heart, Oh. Jo and Jerrica's.

    Stand: Adjustable in height, and with two alternative pieces on top to hold the doll, saddle support or underarmsupport.

    Certificate of authenticity: Same as Classic Jem's.

    Instructions: Hands/stand. Double-sided, with French text on the other side. Same as with Jerrica and Rio.

    Interpretations:
    Cartoon: Introduced in the episode "The Beginning". Hair resembles the cartoon much more than the 80's doll, without the metallic strands. Amazing job with the eyes and the makeup, even if she doesn't have visible eyes and no eyeshadow in the cartoon. Outfit is obviously based on the cartoon version rather than the doll, even if in reversed colors, but perhaps that was intentional to bring out the haircolor more. Nice idea with the earrings box, resembling the one seen in the very first episode. The mastertape is referring to the one seen in the episode "Out Of The Past", although Integrity Toys added the design and text. The voice imprint also refers to "Out Of The Past", where we see the song titles appear on a computer screen, in a very similar font. As for the "Main holographic transmitter logic board schematics" that's probably made up by Integrity Toys.

    Sweethearts since high school, JERRICA BENTON and RIO PACHECO were destined for each other but lately, his crush on the mysterious JEM is putting doubts in our hero’s heart… But little does he know, the woman he loves and the woman he’s infatuated with are one! JEM AND THE HOLOGRAMS’ road manager is always there to come to the rescue a rock star in distress, but will JERRICA BENTON ever reveal her mysterious secret to him?

    The doll I looked forward to the most and prefer out of the first wave. In the 80's line the two Rio dolls were the only male dolls released, so it was time for another version of Jerrica's boyfriend. Rio is now 12.5 inch tall (taller than the female dolls), comes in his very detailed cartoon outfit which differs completely from the 80's doll. He now has longer purple hair, and a new body sculpt. His head sculpt was designed in a way that makes it appear as his head is pointed somewhat upwards, which was fixed for the next Rio doll of this line. The crew duffle bag with the Jem logo print was a nice touch, and look at that watch and the shoes! Edition limited to 850 dolls. Sleeve front. Box front with sleeve. Box front. Box front top.

    Contents:
    Hands: The ones he came wearing. Interchangeable. Palms.

    Extra hands: Interchangeable. Palms.

    Jacket: Beige pleather varsity jacket with working zipper. Open. Back.

    Shirt: Dark peach crew neck t-shirt in stretchy fabric. Hook-and-eye closure on back. Tag inside. Back open.

    Pants: 80's style high-waist pleated dark beige trousers, with pockets on back. Tag inside. Zipper and hook-and-eye closure in front. Consists of two fabrics. Back.

    Belt: Made of a a leatherlike material, with a brighter more beige color than the pants, and a slightly golden belt buckle in metal.

    Shoes: Beige deck shoes in matching color to the belt and wristband for the watch, with white shoelaces. White insoles and beige outsoles.

    Watch: Beige miniature new wave wristwatch with leather-like wristband in matching color to the belt and shoes.

    Bag: A dark blue crew duffle bag in a leather-like fabric with a Jem logo print and black handles, and zipper closure. Has an actual pocket on the side, with zipper closure. Back.

    Miniature V.I.P. back stage pass: Cardboard doublesided print laminated. Made to look like a mail-in piece from the 80's official Hasbro Jem club. Back.

    Concert hall layout schematics: Cardboard print with plans for the stage of Jem's next concert. Says, among other things, "International Stop #3 Montreal Oct. 18-19, 1986".

    Stand: Oval black plastic base with colored print of the Jem logo and a hole on top to put in the pole, plus a couple of smaller holes on the sides to attach the cord. Text on the base bottom. Base has similar shape to the 80's Jem doll stand. Silver pole, adjustable in height, inner part is metal while outer part is chromed plastic. One black plastic piece to put on top of the pole to hold the doll, underarmsupport. Does not come with the saddle support like the female dolls, but still it comes with instructions that show two pieces. All dolls came with this stand, except the 2014 dolls' logo colors were just slightly adjusted, and Glitter 'n Gold Jem/Jerrica Benton and Rio who came with golden stands.

    Certificate of authenticity: Same as most of the dolls. Says 2012.

    Instructions: Hands/stand. Double-sided, with French text on the other side. Same instructions as Jerrica and Synergy.

    Interpretations:
    Cartoon: Introduced in the episode "The Beginning". Hair resembles the cartoon, even though it's slightly longer, but that's probably what it took to get that Rio hairstyle. Finally Rio has purple eyebrows. Outfit resembles his cartoon look outrageously well, with a few small differences: the color of the shirt could have been more dark pink, he now has a pocket on his jacket, and his shoes are more detailed. That crew duffle bag may not be from the cartoon, but it looks so good.
