Integrity Toys signed up as the official licensor of the Jem doll line for a fourth year and promised a "vibrant lineup of hot dolls" for the 30th anniversary year of Jem, 2015. With never before released dolls based on the cartoon, and "many highly anticipated fan favorite looks" for Jem herself.

Being the 30th anniversary of the cartoon, this was a big year for the Jem brand, the year when the Jem comic and the live action movie had their premieres. Other companies joined in to celebrate this year aswell, like ShopBop, Manic Panic, Sephora and several others.

Integrity Toys already before 2015 started, on December 6, 2014, had offered an early sneak peak of a future doll, which was officially announced in 2015, Lindsey Pierce! A very appreciated character among Jem collectors.

This year was the first to offer us some substitute Jem dolls, which most of us could agree on resembled Jem characters enough, and characters which we later would realize would never be released officially before the line ended. The W Club membership ugrade doll Ollie Lawson, which became many Jem fans' Jeff Wright, and Jacqueline O'Rion who became our Jacqui Benton.

On June 9 Business Wire were actually first to reveal two appreciated male characters that are becoming dolls by Integrity Toys. Anthony Julian and Craig Phillips.

Then we got another male doll, Eric Raymond released for the first time ever in doll form.

On top of this, we got four looks of Jem herself. One of which was an exclusive for ShopBop which were doing a Jem line this year, and one was a San Diego Comic-Con exclusive with a Jerrica Quick Switch head and a very special box.

So this turned out to the be the year of Jem herself mostly, with more looks for Jem than any other year, aswell the year of male Jem dolls with three official releases.

Among collectors, there was a slight change in attitude, perhaps more noticable this year than before. Jem IT collectors went from appreciative observers of a high quality line they never expected to happen, to having spent money on lots of dolls, and finally understanding they could have some impact on what dolls were released. Especially now that this line had gotten beyond the most logical looks, and they were starting to see more responsiveness from IT. It caused some tension among collectors, because they didn't know how many more years we could hope for this line to last, since it had already outlasted the 80's line in most senses. None of them knew if IT intended to extend the line beyond Jem's 30th anniversary. And most still had alot of very personal wants. Many collectors saw any release as a either a perfect option for themselves, or a letdown because it meant it stole one of the spots from another wish they had, and some completists were annoyed because they felt they had to buy characters/looks they didn't prefer.

    Well known and respected in the music business, star reporter Lindsey Pierce is the host of Lin-Z TV, the longest running industry news show on VTV, the hottest music video channel there ever was! Lindsey fell in love with the fresh new sound of JEM AND THE HOLOGRAMS as soon as she discovered the band and soon took the group under her wing. Extremely well connected in the music industry, Lindsey is largely responsible for taking JEM AND THE HOLOGRAMS to new heights by connecting the band with some of her high-profile contacts and playing their music videos non-stop on her show! On the other hand, Lindsey is not a big fan of the Misfits, since Pizzazz trashed her set multiple times in some of her notorious fits of rage.... Oh, all the drama!

    This IT Direct exclusive is a very long awaited and expected choice of a doll (although it was never planned as a doll in the 80's), in her most iconic choice of curly hairstyle and orange/limegreen outfit. Already in early December 2014, we got a preview showing the top of the head, where the headband revealed what outfit she was to be released in. This is probably one of the most 80's looking dolls of the line. You could argue she should have been released before Danielle or even before Regine and Astral, that's how recognizable she is in the cartoon.

    Integrity Toys has started to take even more care into packaging their Jem dolls by wrapping the box in a layer of thin paper and including one of those small silica gel packets to prevent moisture inside.

    The head sculpt is the same as Rapture's. Skin tone is FR White. Hair color is "Pale Blond". Edition size 500. Estimated ship date was approximately late May/Early June 2015.

    Interpretations:
    Cartoon:
    Character introduced in the episode "Disaster", outfit in episode "Starbright Part One Falling Star". I can't say I agree 100% on the choice of head sculpt, which feels a wide for Lindsey's cartoon look. Maybe the Jerrica head sculpt would had been a better fit. The hair appears to be just as curly as it should, but completely blonde rather than yellow, and a bit longer than in the cartoon (well Integrity Toys always gives us a bit extra). Lindsey had no apparent makeup in the cartoon, but she does get several colors here, yellow, green and bright violet. The outfit looks very close to her cartoon outfit, although the collar was slightly lower, gloves shorter, belt had some creasing, and boots were higher. She also gets three bracelets, while she had none in the cartoon. The earrings weren't gold in the cartoon, but orange and green. She has some green and orange dots on her earrings, rather than triple pearls like in the cartoon. I can't find Lindsey ever had a portable tape recorder, but it is only logical for her to have one, and the logo on it resembles the logo from her show. Lindsey is actually seen several times in the cartoon with a light blue microphone, very observant by Integrity Toys.

  • Jeff Wright (Ollie Lawson) 85075
    Confident, strong and always a risk taker, this player doesn't fear taboos and is not afraid to experiment with shapes, colors and textures to modernize any retro look and make it his own!

    When it was time to register for the 2015 Integrity Toys W Club, you were able to purchase some exclusive Club-only dolls, and a very recognizable one was called Ollie Lawson, which many Jem-only collectors decided to purchase.

    The Integrity Toys line "Color Infusion" is more Jem than ever! well infact this doll is rather inspired by Don Johnson in his role as James "Sonny" Crockett from Miami Vice, especially the accessories and the beard. But what do we Jem fans care, as long as it resembles Jeff Wright, Kimber's boyfriend, who appeared in seven episodes, and whom Kimber almost married in the Jem cartoon. This doll's hair and clothing are the same colors and style as Jeff, and he uses the same body type as the male Jem dolls, which was mentioned in his description. Infact part of the description sounds like Jeff who was a stuntman, "Confident, strong and always a risk taker".

    Jem fans are speculating Jeff fell out of the plans for the upcoming releases of the Jem line, and that Integrity Toys are offering this as the closest substitute. Or perhaps they just thought we'd enjoy it because of the 80's look. That look is quite good enough for me, I was introduced to Integrity Toys through the Jem line, and I've been looking into their other lines more and more. Here is a reason to really do so. And male characters isn't something we've gotten a lot of in this line at this point.

    Even if Integrity Toys would had released an official Jeff doll later on, they probably hadn't released it in this same look, even though this is Jeff's perhaps most recognizable look. So this doll was our only chance to get this look. As of 2017, when we found out the line was coming to an end, and no official Jeff had been released, we realized this was the closest we ever got to seeing a doll made out of Jeff. So if you bougth this one, did you shave (remove) his beard? Myself I'll always keep it on.

    Unlike the actual official Jem dolls in this line, this doll comes in a silver box with a holographic sheen to it. And also unlike the Jem line, it has a different stand, no cardboard extras, no certificate of authenticity.

    Ollie has the FR White skintone, and uses the headsculpt of a previously released doll called Romain. Shipped in the summer of 2015.

    Interpretations:
    Cartoon:
    Introduced in the episode "Disaster". Hair is quite matching, the color and style. Although the doll has more volume to it. Jeff had no beard in the cartoon. But some male Jem characters in the cartoon like Rio and Eric actually got a slight beard in some episodes.

    This outfit is what we first saw Jeff wearing in the Jem cartoon, and one of the few outfits he wore more than one episode, infact four, and it's one of his few personal outfits, as we often saw him in different stuntroles, or even wedding clothes. The jacket of the doll is a great match, with extra pockets and buttons, but Jeff wore it without rolled up sleeves. Shirt is a perfect match. Lightgrey pants with a crease on front match perfectly. Jeff had a dark grey belt though. Jeff had slightly more lightgrey shoes rather than all white, but in the same kind of style. Jeff had no glasses or wristwatch as far as I can find. So these, which more correspond more with Crockett, can be considered as a bonus for us Jem fans.

  • Jacqui Benton (Jacqueline O'Rion) 85077
    She definitely makes her presence known on the scene!

    This doll is part of the Color Infusion line by Integrity Toys, which shares the same body sculpts as the Jem line. This is yet another doll, on top of the Jeff (Ollie Lawson) doll, that I list here although it's officially not part of the Jem line.

    Whether you view this as Jacqui Benton is up to you, some collectors who even collect doubles of each doll, are skipping this. But to us, big time Jem fans, who waited months and months for more Jem dolls after the 2014 Comic-Con exclusive, or even an announcement of some, this came at the right moment.

    This was the closest Integrity Toys ever came to making Jacqui, and we couldn't wish for more, other than perhaps an actual Jacqui outfit. Shares head sculpt with the Synergy doll. Skin Tone: FR White Limited Edition Size of 500 Dolls.

    Interpretations:
    Cartoon:
    Introduced and appeared only in the episode "Out Of The Past", but seen in pictures in atleast one other episode. Not only does she share the Jem body sculpt, but she shares Synergy's face sculpt, which some Jem fans consider a response to the fact that in the cartoon it is said and shown that Synergy's face is modelled and just differently colored from Jacqui's. She also resembles Jacqui in skincolor, haircolor, hairstyle and eyecolor. Even her name resembles Jacqui's, and her last name is the name of a constellation of stars, which reminds of us Jacqui's song "Starlight".

  • Anthony Julian 14066
    Meet music video director Anthony Julian, friend and collaborator of JEM AND THE HOLOGRAMS! The top of the top in the music video biz! Anthony quickly became a close friend with JEM AND THE HOLOGRAMS and stole the heart of band member Shana Elmsford! Mr. Julian also won many awards for his collaborations with JEM AND THE HOLOGRAMS on iconic music videos such as Twilight in Paris, one of the first pieces that helped give JEM AND THE HOLOGRAMS the exposure that they needed to skyrocket their career to the top in record time!

    This was one of my most awaited dolls. It is a secondary character in the cartoon, but he is very involved in several episodes as a director and is Shana's boyfriend. He infact appeared already in the second episode and was the first boyfriend, except Rio, introduced in the cartoon, and is friends with Video and Lindsey Pierce.

    He comes with a completely new head sculpt, with flocked hair around the sides and back, and rooted curly on top, and he even has his mustache. It's incredible how different this sculpt can look comparec to different later releases, also released for Tobias Alsford for Color Infusion and for the MLP line. And although the official Anthony doll looks most like Anthony, I even prefer all the other releases with this sculpt.

    For accessories, I had expected another video camera, like the Video doll came with, or a director's chair, but a megaphone was a better choice.

    Skin tone A-Tone. An IT Direct exclusive. Made available on June 28th at noon eastern via the Integrity Toys online shop. Sold out the second day, the first day it was available to the public to purchase. Limited edition of 500 Dolls.

    Cartoon:
    Introduced in the episode "Disaster". They went with his first outfit rather than his more recognizable second, which looked quite similar but was more colorful with it's green/turquoise shirt and yellow shoes. But I can see they probably wanted to use the outfit that appeared next to Jem's (Twilight In Paris Jem/Jerrica, also released this year) in the music video he directed, and maybe they liked the pink turtleneck shirt. They did make the gray pants a little more exciting though by choosing a plaid pattern fabric. And although he probably was never seen having them in the cartoon, he came with a megaphone and a wristwatch.

  • Twilight in Paris Jerrica Benton / Jem 14065
    TWILIGHT IN PARIS sets the tone for everyone's favorite pop star as she and her friends fly to the City of Lights to film their first music video under the lens of famous director Anthony Julian! JERRICA BENTON supervises the shoot, but when the time comes to shine, JEM is just a flick of her earring away... It's showtime, Synergy!

    This was the fourth (and last) annual exclusive doll for the San Diego Comic-Con International. Which means Jem was an official San Diego Comin-Con exclusive as much as four years in a row, up to this year which was the 30 years anniversary of the Jem brand. Talk about making a statement for the Jem brand after all these years. And with each of these releases, IT outdid the previous, with cool new features to showcase this great line. And they really spoiled Hasbro by giving them high quality showpieces like none other Hasbro had ever presented at the Comic-Con before.

    This is a very recognizable look for Jem, both from the 80's line and the cartoon. With a slight 80's touch, but still modern enough even today, and a favorite of many Jem fans. Infact some Jem fans had been begging for years for this particular outfit. Personally it wasn't a favorite, but still perfectly fine, but it already appeared in the 80's line, and we could have wished for the most spectacular glamorous looks for Jem instead. Also, fashions that require for fishnet fabric tend to turn out looking bulky for miniature pieces like fashion dolls, which was a worry I had. But Integrity Toys always susprises us with their designs and made this outfit look better than expected. I like that they made it more like the cartoon version. They got everything right, and some improvements.

    For the first time, with this being the third doll depicting Jerrica, they went with her original cartoon hairstyle (my preference) which was shorter and had a more irregular cut. Also for the first time, the idea of changing Jerrica into Jem is happening with a Jem IT doll (unless you count the GNG Jem which had some blonde hair and a Jerrica outfit), with the quick switch feature that allows you to switch the head. Both heads have skin tone FR White. I don't like the black eyeliner though, Jem sure wore heavy colorful makeup, but neither Jem nor Jerrica wore alot of black like that. The rest of the makeup looks great, but I will always prefer blue eyebrows, like the original 80's doll had (and the cartoon every now and then) but which only one of the Integrity Toys Jem dolls has had so far.

    I'm not sure how this worked for Comic-Con, being a high quality doll that is more pricey than usual, did the general buyers understand the quick switch feature for the heads and realize only one body is included, and that there's not two entirely separate fashions?

    More than anything, I'm excited about the extraordinary packaging for this doll. For the first time they went with something completely different, that is sure to grab attention. The packaging looks even slightly inspired by the Rock Backstager inside.

    Limited edition of 750 dolls.

    Confirmed On June 26 as the 2015 San Diego Comic-Con (July 8-12) exclusive, to be available at the Hasbro's booth #3329, and following the convention a limited amount was available on HasbroToyShop.com (for buyers in the USA only). The price of $149.99 announced did not include California Sales tax, so the actual price at the show was $162.

    Interpretations:
    Cartoon: Overall a very close match, with a few intentional changes made.
    Jem:
    Introduced in the episode "Kimber's Rebellion", and worn in the music video "Twilight In Paris" unlike Jerrica's version. Triple necklace is white on the doll, and single black in the cartoon. Doll has double white bracelets, while in the cartoon she had a single black. The gloves are fingerless in the cartoon, but full on the doll. She wears the bracelets on the wrong wrist in the promotional pictures.

    Jerrica:
    Introduced in the episode "Frame Up". Hairstyle is the closest we have gotten in this line to Jerrica's original hairstyle, which she originally wore with this outfit. All the black eyeliner is not based on Jerrica. Jerrica's headband became a hat on this doll. The darkblue part of the skirt was removed in favor for a superhigh slit on the doll.


    80's line:
    Jem:
    Was released in 1986 as a Flipside fashion, as "Like A Dream". 80's fashion had no dress over the jumpsuit, and only had a single layer silver pearl necklace instead of three layers of white pearls, had armbands instead of full gloves, blue horizontal lines on the socks instead of all white, and no bracelet.

    Jerrica:
    Was released in 1986 as a Flipside fashion, as "Like A Dream". 80's fashion had a much shorter dress, slightly thicker belt, wore no socks, wore pink sunglasses, had a bigger hairwrap, and the necklace had silver pearls instead of white.

  • Craig Phillips 14062
    When we first meet Craig Phillips™ in the episode "The Talent Search", we soon discover his big secret: he is the brother of Mary "Stormer" Phillips of the Misfits! With this little fact unknown to JEM AND THE HOLOGRAMS, Craig is invited to enter a talent search competition to become the band's new drummer after meeting AJA LEITH, one of the Holograms! Craig is a loyal and kind friend and will do anything to defend those he loves (especially his sister and new love AJA LEITH)! Part of a British band called the Blue Bloods, Craig loves to visit America often to see his sister and his friends, THE HOLOGRAMS!

    Craig Phillips™ is a fully articulated 12.5-inch vinyl fashion figure with fully rooted hair. Craig comes dressed in his signature look as seen in the hit 80's series, composed of a hot pink short sleeved polo shirt, high-waisted white jeans and tennis shoes. Craig comes with his instrument of choice, his elaborate drum kit! Two different interchangeable band logos are included so that you may chose which band Craig will play for, JEM AND THE HOLOGRAMS or THE BLUE BLOODS! A doll stand is included as well. For adult collectors ages 15 and up.

    Invented by Christy Marx for the cartoon, and is the love interest of Aja, and brother of Stormer, and once competed against Raya to join the Holograms as their drummer. Rumored to have been planned in 1988 for the Hasbro line, which was most likely not true. But here this character finally makes his debute as a doll. Although some of us guessed he would be released since he was kinda hinted already in the description of the Stormer doll in 2013. He was then announced on June 9, 2015, without pictures, and then it took until September 10, 2015 until we got pictures.

    As for releasing the characters of this line in logical order, there were actually two dolls released before Craig, that appear in less episodes than he did, Astral and Regine, but they on the other hand were planned for the unreleased 1988 line by Hasbro.

    This is the fifth male character that joined this line, and goes right up there with Anthony and Riot, as my favorite Integrity Toys dolls, despite his head not being totally recognizable from the cartoon which it was based on.

    Craig didn't have very exciting outfits in the cartoon, only this and joggingwear, so this was really the only option, seen in three episodes even. It's kinda simple, and the collar of the shirt looks kinda big on this doll. I was hoping for them to add something for this outfit, like a jacket that says "The Bluebloods" on the back, not that one is ever seen in the cartoon, but I guess the drumset costed quite alot to make in itself. A drumset like this, is infact an absolutely amazing piece even for a high quality line like this. Skin tone FR White. This doll aswell as Starstruck Jem, which was presented with pictures at the same time, were IT direct exclusives, made available for pre-order on September 12, 2015. W Club members were given a two days priority window to pre-order these dolls before the general public. Price was $130. Estimated ship date early winter 2015. Limited edition of 500 dolls.

    Interpretations:
    Cartoon:
    Introduced in the episode "The Talent Search Part 1". Although the overall outcome of this doll looks great, it kinda missed just slightly on things like haircolor, hairlength, shirt color, face and shoes. Quite unimportant differences though. Hair matches his sister Stormer, but looks darker than they both have in the cartoon. Hair is longer on the doll than in the cartoon. Some Jem collectors thought Riot's head sculpt looks too soft in shape for Craig, and Craig didn't get his rough eyebrows. Vaughn Sawyers has revealed that they originally did two samples for Craig, where one used the sculpt of the Fashion Royalty character Romain, but Hasbro thought the Riot sculpt was a better match with Craig's sister Stormer.

    And his shoes were supposed to be light gray rather than white. The drumset is an appreciated addition since he is a drummer, even though it doesn't match any drums he plays in the cartoon. But a big plus to IT on spotting the logo in the cartoon with the crown and band name, they even matched the font! A connection to the Starstruck Jem doll being announced at the same time as Craig, was that both were seen in the same music video. Lots of things were of course right with this doll though, like the overall look and even eyecolor.

  • Eric Raymond 14060
    Meet Eric Raymond, cunning business man, infamous manager of THE MISFITS and self-proclaimed record producer and movie director!

    A former protégé of Emmet Benton (founder of Starlight Music), Eric Raymond started his brilliant career as an assistant, only to realize sooner or later what real money there was in the music industry and the kind of fame and power it could bring him. Following the untimely death of Emmet, Eric attempted a hostile takeover of Starlight music, only to be foiled by the Benton daughters, their friends and a mysterious newcomer called simply JEM, who foiled Raymond's hopes for success over and over again.

    Together with The Misfits and The Stingers, Eric Raymond is always ready to jump at any opportunity to exact revenge against his arch business rival, Jerrica Benton and her friends! Will he ever discover that the mysterious JEM, the singer he despises the most and Jerrica Benton are in fact one and the same? ERIC RAYMOND will stop at nothing to turn the bands under his wing into major international successes, but above all, he would do anything to finally discover who JEM really is! Watch out HOLOGRAMS, Eric is out to get ya!

    Eric Raymond is a 12.5-inch fully articulated vinyl fashion figure with rooted hair. Comes complete with his signature business suit, briefcase, watch, sunglasses, exclusive character specific paper accessories and shoes. A stand is also included. For adult collectors ages 15 and up only.

    The anti-Jem doll almost, anti-color and anti-fashion. This character was invented for the cartoon and never considered as a doll until this line came along.

    A definite want for Jem fans, who had been speculating what head sculpt would fit him. And that's what became the big question between those who liked the outcome and those who thought it looked nothing like Eric and didn't like his expression. I can't blame IT for thinking this head sculpt, which they had previously used for Perry Marino and their Count Dracula doll, would fit the bad guy of the Jem world. Personally I thought it was a fine choice, much better for Eric than many they could had chosen instead. But if you really feel you need a substitute for Eric, why not take a look at the Color Infusion Declan Wake, Cinematic Convention edition, which shares Techrat's sculpt though, but with his hair and expression he can pass for Eric just as well as the official Eric.

    Other opinions revolved around his outfit looking a bit big and baggy on him, which is probably because IT made three layers for the top of his suit. And we even got a briefcase, sunglasses, a picture of Synergy and some papers. Skin tone FR White. Limited edition of 500 dolls. Price was $130. Eric Raymond was made available to order on November 30 to W Club members before the general public on December 1, 2015. Estimated ship date was first week of December 2015.

    Cartoon:
    Introduced in the episode "The Beginning". Fact is they made so many things right with this one. It's by the book, every detail I can spot, dark brown hair, brown eyes, shape of costume. And hey, he does look angry as he should! They even fluffed up his hair, even if it didn't quite resemble the evil horns from the cartoon, which I assume would had been close to impossible to style correctly in fashion doll size.

  • Starstruck Jem 14061
    Based on an outfit initially called "Starstruck Guitar" released in 1986 as part of the original 80's toy line by HASBRO, Starstruck JEM is the design team's representation of this truly outrageous look. Contrary to the toy line where HOLOGRAMS band members were meant to wear this costume, it became a key look for JEM instead and was seen in many memorable episodes such as "Glitter 'n Gold" and "The Talent Search". Our version of Starstruck JEM features glittery golden makeup, a luscious two-toned hairstyle, a head band that matches her outfit and a flashy golden microphone, all she needs to rock on!

    JEM is a fully articulated 12.5-inch vinyl fashion doll with fully rooted hair and hand applied eyelashes. JEM comes with her signature Starstruck look, a golden microphone and mic stand, a golden record award, Jemstar earrings, bracelets and high-heeled boots. A doll stand is included as well. For adult collectors ages 15 and up.

    This look was one of the best designs of the 80's line in my opinion, a kind of casual style with a glamorous cut and unusual combination of colors for this line, and IT nailed it and added their own touch aswell.

    Of all 42 new looks released as fashions in the 1987 Hasbro line, this is the one and only that ever made it to the IT line, so if you wondered where this release suddenly came from, it was definitely called for! Other than all the fabrics, like IT's specifically printed fabric for the shirt, I really like the boots in particular, I just can't stop looking at them.

    The yellow glittery makeup, and the blonde hair underneath the pink, reminds me of the IT Glitter 'n Gold Jem doll, but in an improved version. The outcome is one of the best looking dolls of the line.

    This doll doesn't have a whole lot of accessores, but the golden award is repeated from the GNG doll. Maybe some people would have preferred to get the matching guitar with this doll, which the original 80's fashion came with, since this fashion itself was infact originally even called "Star Struck Guitar". IT didn't make this because their interpretation was based on the cartoon, in which this guitar never appeared, but IT found out how popular this guitar still was among collectors and released it two years later for the Studio Playset. Skin tone Japan. Limited edition of 500 dolls.

    This doll was announced with pictures at the same time as Craig Phillips, and was an IT direct exclusive, made available for pre-order on September 12 2015. W Club members were given a two days priority window to pre-order these dolls before the general public. Price was $130.00. Estimated ship date early winter 2015.

    Interpretations:
    Cartoon:
    Introduced in the episode "Glitter and Gold". First note is the different makeup than in the cartoon, because IT choose to match this outfit with the makeup of Glitter 'n Gold Jem, which isn't entirely wrong since this outfit is golden, plus it was released at the same time for the 80's line and introduced in the same episode of the cartoon as Glitter 'n Gold Jem. But to be picky, in the 80's line, this was part of the Music is Magic line, and the gold in this design was something of a coincidence.

    In the cartoon, there were no bracelets, the top is darker, headband white with golden stars (IT consciously made it turquoise though because they wanted to use the same fabric as the shirt), has bright yellow tights, and yellow pumps. But the fact that this doll didn't come with a guitar is fine compared to the cartoon, where it was never featured.

    80's line:
    You can clearly see IT based their version mostly on the 80's Hasbro fashion, rather than the cartoon look. Because things like the headband, top color, tights color, and even boots are closer match. Of course boots were lower on the original fashion, and colored turquoise. And IT added bracelets and the Glitter 'n Gold award accessory.

  • Hollywood Jem Award Night 14064
    JEM is 12.5-inch fully articulated vinyl fashion doll with glamorous rooted pink hair, luscious hand-applied eyelashes and a pretty closed mouth smile. JEM's signature Award Night look is comprised of a ruffled pleated pale pink gown accented with a gold bodice and an exclusively designed neck piece. JEM comes complete with her yellow flowers, her JEMSTAR earrings and shoes. Certificate of authenticity and doll stand also included! For adult collectors ages 15 and up.

    Absolutely stunning how this kind of dress can even be done on a doll. It was originally an unreleased Hasbro Jem doll look, and it looked great in the cartoon, but IT made it look outrageous! IT even made that actual necklace Jem wore. And I love that little red heart on the belt. I hereby award IT for great accomplishments in the doll business! Only concern is that whenever a Jem IT doll gets a hairstyle like this, in a pony tail or something, it usually means thinner hair, but I have yet to find out if that's true for this release. Make-up looks great, with it's tones of pink and violet, and I guess the heavy black eyeliner works with the awardshow-look.

    Also, love the yellow roses accessory from the cartoon. This is almost like a response to IT's very first doll, Hollywood Jem, whose outfit appeared in the same episode as this one, "Hollywood Jem Part Two And The Winner Is...", which if you hadn't guessed it yet must be one of the top favorite episodes of the IT Jem designers since thjey released so many looks/characters from the two-parter it belongs to.

    This is the first Jem doll in this line to come without a microphone, because she was dressed for attending an award show obviously. Second ever Jem doll in this line to come with the non-smiling head sculpt of Jerrica. Skin tone FR White.

    W club members even got to see a video showing this doll in a 3d-spin, to really display the dress.

    This doll was a 2015 W Club Exclusive. Edition size was based on orders, but is reported to be 500. Price was $130, with a pre-order deposit of $20.00. Estimated ship date was approximately late Q1/Early Q2 2016.

    Cartoon:
    Introduced in the episode "Hollywood Jem Part Two And The Winner Is...". What can I say, close match! Maybe the belt heart was bigger in the cartoon, maybe the hair on the head looked fuller, and maybe the dress was slightly more violet.

    80's line This was going to be released in the 80's line in 1988 but the line was cancelled before that. But as far as can be seen in prototypes, it's a close match, with the correct colors of the dress and shoes.

  • Showtime Jem 14098
    30 amazing years ago, JEM AND THE HOLOGRAMS took the world by storm and left an undying mark in the hearts of fans everywhere!

    To mark this most remarkable moment in the history of the brand, HASBRO and Integrity Toys in partnership with SHOPBOP are proud to bring you the exclusive SHOWTIME JEM doll!

    Dressed in a color variation of her truly outrageous sensational 80's signature look, JEM shines like never before! Includes her light pink nylon asymmetrical mini-dress, glittery fringed belt, matching cuff bracelet, JEMSTAR earrings, metallic stockings, shoes and wireless microphone. Fully articulated 12.5-inch vinyl doll with rooted hair and hand applied eyelashes. A doll stand is included. For adult collectors ages 15 and up only.

    High fashion house ShopBop came right into our Jem world and wanted to sponsor their own exclusive special Jem release to celebrate Jem's 30th anniversary, of the very first sight we ever saw of Jem in the cartoon, which was the overall most iconic look of Jem.

    Although this was a close match to an already released Jem doll in this line, that doll had naturally sold out long ago and become so hard to find, that we Jem IT collectors were thrilled to get this alternative look. And those who missed the previous release, now had the chance to get a great new interpretation of Jem as most of us recognized Jem best.

    IT really seemed to want to give ShopBop the ultimate Jem, a doll they knew would sell. This doll was not by far the only Jem exclusive ShopBop offered us costumers though. They also had their own line of jewelries and all kinds of high quality accessories.

    On top of being a homage to the first look we ever see of Jem in the cartoon, I see this as an improvement over the Classic doll, now that IT has been in the Jem doll business for some years and gotten to know Jem its fans really well. Compared to the previous release, this one most noticably has a brighter colored dress and shoes, beautiful red belt instead of silver, red bracelet with a red gemstone, and makeup and and basically everything was changed atleast slightly and fine-tuned to perfection.

    And for the first time ever for the IT Jem line, Jem was released in Jerrica's head sculpt, which meant it had a closed mouth as an homage to the very first 80's Jem doll, while all the other 80's Jem dolls were changed to smiling head sculpt.

    A nightmare for me, was if IT would ever get the idea to re-release a popular look for their Jem line, a few years later. Because I felt a new batch after that amount of time is bound to be different, and make completist collectors feel forced to buy it to have all variations, but as I said, this was not simply a rerelease but changed in every detail, atleast colorwise in some things.

    Skin tone FR White. Limited edition of 500 Dolls. Price was $119. Maximum units per order was 2, and luckily ShopBop shipped internationally. Launch date was October 1, 2015, at between approximately 7:45 AM and 8 AM EST, ready to ship instantly.

    Interpretations:
    Cartoon:
    Introduced in the episode "The Beginning". This is back to the very first look we ever see of Jem, at which time Jem's belt was still red. The face looks more recognizable to the cartoon, than the 2012 IT version did, since this one has softer look with "friendlier" shaped eyebrows. Even the bracelet resembles the cartoon somewhat, being more towards red, as it was completely red in the first scene with Jem in the cartoon. Unlike in the cartoon, Jem has tights.

    80's line:
    As much as this seems to represent the original cartoon look only, it does pay homage to the original doll aswell, with the bright pink dress, which is brighter than the Classic release by IT in 2012. But also with the Jerrica head sculpt with its closed mouth. Again, the fabric is shiny, rather than lamé. The belt is red rather than silver and blue. Bracelet is red rather than silver. Shoes are not chromed.
