Here you will hopefully soon find every piece that was released in the line. There weren't alot of fashions released separately like in the 80's, so this will be somewhat limited. But hopefully you will enjoy having a look at all of these masterpieces side by side.

2017

As much as 55 dolls (plus 3 remaining for the line) have so far been released in the Jem doll line by Hasbro/Integrity Toys from 2012 and beyond, or more if you count extra heads. Or additional ones that aren't officially Jem dolls but that fans have more or less agreed resembles certain unreleased characters and who never not get their own official doll release since they are secondary characters.

All dolls come with atleast two pairs of hands, atleast one fashion set, shoes, and a stand. Some come with earrings and/or other jewelries, microphone, microphone stand, instrument, cord, and/or cardboard prints. And most come with extras on top of that.

Also, all dolls come with a certificate of authenticity, some a unique one that says how many were made, and many share the same kind of certificate that still says 2012. Most dolls, except for some Comic Con exclusives, come with instructions for things like hairstyling, stand, removing hands or even heads, assembling instruments or a cardboard stage.

- Hair color: Most of the dolls have punk hair colors like pink, red, blue, lime green, purple or rainbow. But some have less recognizable colors like blonde, black, white or yellow. These dolls have a different type of hair than the 80's dolls and most of them come styled stiff with some kind of spray in it.

As the hairstyling advice included with some of the dolls say, you can gently spray a little bit of cold water onto the hair to make it get it's right volume, and use a longtooth comb. I haven't done this so you will see the hairstyles pictured as they came in the box. The advice also says you can wash the hair using cold water and a small amount of dishwashing detergent. Rinse her hair thoroughly, gently style it using a toothcomb and leave it to air-dry overnight. NEVER use hot water or use a hair dryer on Jem's synthetic hair!

- Markings: The markings don't necessarily correspond with the year they were released. Most males are marked "2012 IT" on the back of their head, and "2006 JWU BY IT" on their behind.

Females so far are marked "2011 IT", "2012 IT" or "2013 IT" on the back of their head, and "2012 Integrity" on the left side of their behind.

- Bodyshape: There are two different types of doll bodies, Regular 12 inch (30.5 cm) female shape (back), 12.5 inch male shape (back). With that said, there is one female doll, Clash, that makes use of the quick switch feature where you can switch heads, not sure how the body sculpt differs.

The female dolls body sculpt was a new designed especially for this new line. While the males is a re-used body used by Integrity Toys in their lines before. Both body types are different from the 80's line, thinner, but still very poseable, and the females still have quite large feet for being fashion dolls. The skincolor of the bodies of the dolls are a bit less colorful and perhaps more realistic. Unlike the 80's dolls, these don't have rubber legs and arms, but hard plastic.

The heads are now smaller than in the 80's line. Most facemolds were created for the Jem characters (except for Regine and Techrat so far), but some have later also been used in other Integrity Toys lines. All dolls of the same character share face mold. A few dolls heads suffer from not being correctly handled in the factory, which means the head can appear pushed in and more flat than it's supposed to. But Integrity Toys has a fix for this.

Integrity Toys took the makeup a step further. Although they softened it down from the extreme rockstar type, they did make it more advance with more shades and even glitter and things. Hand applied eyelashes. Some of the early dolls have the problem that they don't sit very well above the eyes, and fall down a bit.

All dolls have removable hands, and I believe all males have removable feet also. The female dolls hands and feet have nailpolish, often matching their lipstick.

Here is a Youtube instructions video from Integrity Toys for the female body.

Look-alike-dolls: Integrity Toys has alot of other lines, and although this bodysculpt was created for Jem, some of the other lines later got to share body type with the Jem dolls, as well as facemolds, like the Color Infusion line. Meaning Jem get's even more fashions and especially shoes that fit. Infact some dolls from other Integrity Toys lines, like Color Infusion, have so many similarities with unreleased characters of the Jem cartoon, that many Jem fans count them as an unofficial part of the Jem line.

Fashions

All pieces of clothing this line consists of are very detailed and high quality fabrics. Alot of the fashions are even sewn with an inside fabric aswell, probably a fabric that glides off the doll bodies more easily, especially when the outside fabric is leatherlike. Many of the bigger pieces have a tag inside that says Jem. The tag has the Jem logo and often says "2012" regardless of year, but some say "2014".

As for closure, hook-and-eye are by far the most common, where the female have the hook on the left side of the opening and males on the right side. Sometimes there's a pearl instead of a hook, but there's also two kinds of zippers, one which is very hard to grab. Some hook-and-eye closures make it hard to pull the fashion as far as it takes to unhook the hook, and some of them closures break because the thread is or becomes loose, so be gentle with them. Any clothing should be carefully put on and taken off, since some are fragile and tight. Infact a very few pieces of clothing were sewn onto the dolls at factory it seems, because they cannot be removed without breaking a seam. Integrity Toys choose to do some of the fashions differently, so what was a dress in the 80's release, may be a top and a skirt in the Integrity release.

Headpieces

Hairbows, hairties, headbands, hairpieces and hats.

Jackets/Coats

When it comes to jackets, that's where Integrity Toys really get to shine. These are some of the most beautiful and well done pieces of the entire line. Most of them include a tag inside, infact all but Danse's jacket for some reason. Male and female jackets/coats mixed togheter here.



Tops/Shirts/Blouses

A couple these don't open down the entire back and therefore may need to be put on before anything on the lower body. Male and female shirts mixed togheter here.



Dresses

Most of these have a tag inside.


Jumpsuits / Bodysuits

Some of these may be some of the more difficult pieces to put on, since they are very tight and need to go over legs and arms.

Skirts


Tights

All have an elastic waist, but not all are very elastic in the fabric. Some are the same for several dolls, but I haven't really compared them up close to know exactly which ones and how alike they are.

Pants/Shorts

Male and female pants mixed togheter here. Some close in back and some in front.

Belts

Male and female belts mixed togheter here. Lots of different pieces here, som of metal or parts of metal.

Arm cuffs / Gloves

Some of these are meant to give the illusion of being gloves while being worn of the chromed hands that came with the same dolls.

Socks

Male and female socks mixed togheter here.

The rest

The pieces that don't fit in in the above categories. Male and female fashion pieces mixed togheter here.

Shoes

Shoes in this line are not one-piece plastic, but handmade detailed made of fabrics. The female doll feet are not as large as they were on the 80's dolls, but still a bit larger than most fashion dolls today, and thereby the shoes are too. There are 12 shapes of shoes so far, including the male dolls, and several different kinds of fabrics. So two pairs of shoes that may look alike colorwise, probably have differences in the fabric that are hard to spot in these pictures. All dolls came with either beige, black or white outsoles, and a number of colors of their insoles.

Want even more shoes for your Jem dolls? Look for more shoes in the Color Infusion line, also by Integrity Toys, since they are the same size.

Pumps

These are the regular look for shoes in this line, although as you will notice, Integrity Toys often made little adjustments to alternate the shape. This was sometimes done with the original dolls or cartoon look in mind, and sometimes regardless of them. Some may look alike, but none are identical.




Boots & more

This is another example of Integrity's brilliance in making miniature masterpieces. Such detail and even real working zippers in the back, shoe laces, and working buckles.

Male shoes Rio/Riot

Bigger of course than he female feet. Already Rio's first set of shoes from the first wave looked great.

Accessories

Hands

Each doll had atleast one set of extra hands, some two. If you move the pointer over the pictures, you'll see the tooltip says more than what character they belong to, but also if they are the extra hands. Hands are often more easily removed if pulled gently. But don't be afraid to pull hard. But then again this is no playline and perhaps they won't take alot of removing. You can't tell them apart by skincolor nor nailpolish by looking at these pictures, since they weren't scanned all at once and it differs from scan to scan regardless of actual real life difference.

Everyone who likes Jem raise your hands!!!!!

Male hands - Rio/Riot

Male hands are bigger, even if you can't directly tell by the images, and came without nailpolish. These can practically fit in female arms too, since the part that goes into the arm is just as thick, but a slightly different shape though, so I'm not sure they will stay on.

Stands / Microphone stands / Cords

To pose your Jem dolls and their microphones, and cords to connect the parts.

The stands are similar to the 80's Jem doll stand in their oval plastic base shape with the Jem logo. These have a hole on top to put in the pole, plus a couple of smaller holes on the sides to attach the cord. The male dolls as you can see, are missing one piece to put on top of the pole on the stand, so you can not pose them in the saddle support, only the underarmsupport.

The microphone stands consists of a pole, adjustable in height and at direction of the mike on top, to be placed in the round golden plastic base.

The cords are plastic/rubbery black, with chromed plastic connectors, to connect to the stand to the microphone, instrument or other accessory. All dolls that came with a microphone stand, guitar, keytar or synthesizer, also came with a cord as pictured.



Instruments - Guitars/Keytars/Synthesizers/Drums/Saxophone

The instruments consist of guitars, keyboards, keytars, drums and a few other things. The guitars have realistic miniature strings, black and chromed tuning knobs, and whammy bar. All of the Holograms' instruments come with differently colored strap, while the Misfits came with a black strap, and so did the Stingers. The straps have metal buckles and black leather-like pieces to attach to the guitar. Raya's drums consisted of so many parts I decided to show you the assemled version here, but the drumsticks aren't seen here. Jetta's saxophone came with a different kind of strap from guitars and keytars. Instruments also came with the accessory kits. Clash's bracelet cymbals might aswell had been added here instead, but she doesn't use them to play music anyway.


Microphones

Plastic with chromed top, and another color (sometimes chromed) handle. Each doll that came with a microphone, also came with a cord to connect to the stand, unless they came with the later wireless microphone, which are the ones with a pointy bottom in the same color as the top. Not only singer dolls came with these, also Video came with a microphone.

Earrings

All the earrings are made of metal, with different pieces inside, like gems. Some are hoops. And some of course the Jem star earrings. Unlike the 80's line these dolls don't come wearing the earrings, and you have to put some effort into getting them on. Also the metal earrings are not recommended to be left in the dolls, since they may stain them.



Necklaces / Anklets

All metal chains, except I decided to include In Stiches Pizzazz collar here since she does wear it on her neck.

Bracelets

Several different shapes. Made of metal. Bracelets can only be put on if hands are first removed.


Bags / Purses / Portfolios / Guitarcases

Made of leather-like fabric. These are some of the most fun extras, and the ones with the Stage Essential sets are truly amazing.


Other accessories

Some very unusual one of a kind (or two) pieces that bring that extra level of suprise to the dolls. Made of metal, plastic or fabrics



Cardboad accessories

Alot of the extras are printed cardboard with things from the cartoon, such as posters, magazines, music notes. This way Integrity could do prints of text. Most of them were directly based on something seen in the cartoon or the 80's doll line, but several were invented by Integrity Toys aswell. Some even come folded, or are to be folded into 3-dimensional shapes. Some very clever pieces here. Gift box, record with actual cover, four layered mastertapes, fold-out speakers.
