Integrity 2014 Reveal: Jem and The Holograms!

Squeeeee!  New Jem!  I figured we would see more Jem in this wave...mostly because this is a licensed product and since they only have it for a specific amount of time, they are going to milk every penny possible from Jem collectors.  There was definitely some anti-jem backlash on the forums which I found annoying.  I get that people want their FR dolls...I am one of them.  But it is not as if we are getting Jem INSTEAD of getting FR.  There will be plenty of FR this year...just not in February.  Chill people.

Onto the outrageous goodness (My thoughts in BLUE):

At long last, The Holograms are complete... introducing RAYA ALONZO! Known as the "Fifth Hologram", Raya joined the band after the girls ran a talent contest to find a temporary replacement for their friend Shana Elmsford. Although extremely shy at first, Raya quickly became an integral part of JEM AND THE HOLOGRAMS, even more so after Shana's return. Deemed one of the most talented drummers in the music business, Raya is not only beautiful, she is the most loyal friend any rock star can have!

RAYA ALONZO is a fully articulated 12.5-inch vinyl doll with rooted curly pink hair and hand-applied eyelashes. RAYA comes dressed in her signature floral themed costume and includes her wonderfully detailed and completely adjustable drum kit! A doll stand is included. For adult collectors ages 14 and up. Some assembly required; detailed instructions are included.

So Raya!  Woot.  Of the three, she is probably my least favorite.  The outfit is totally accurate to the cartoon in my opinion.  If I were making it...I would have preferred the shirt to be a little more fitted but it still works.  I guess I expected her to have an open mouth for some reason like the original Hasbro doll.  This one looks a bit serious to me for the character.  Still she is cute and I like the skin tone with the hair color.  

Her drum kit however totally makes up for any flaws in the doll.  I am excited to get this many pieces with her.  I had assumed it would be a simple two piece set.  The fact that this has more than that, comes with a stool, and is adjustable for both standing and sitting is killer.  I cannot wait to have her join the rest of the band!

Doll Tech Specs:Body Type: Color Infusion / Jem

Quick Switch Feature: No
Skin Tone: Japan
Hair Color: Deep Raven
Eyelashes: Yes, Hand AppliedJem and The Holograms can add a new band member? Oh, yeah? Well watch it; so can The Misfits! Introducting Jetta Burns, the hot headed saxophonist from London, UK! Now The Misfits can meet the pink haired diva and her friends toe-to-to with more mischief and attitude than ever!
Jetta Burns is a fully articulated 12.5-inch vinyl doll with fully rooted massive 80's raven hair and hand applied eyelashes. Jetta is ready to rock everyone's clock out in her signature costume which is composed of black and white stripped skinny pants, a polka-dot "pleather" over-skirt, a cow print belt and a wild-west inspired metallic snakeskin sleeveless fringed top. Jetta also includes an ultra detailed black chrome saxophone, earrings, shoes and a miniature poster from her former band, The Tinkerbillys!  A doll stand is included. For adult collectors ages 14 and up.

Jetta!!!  Her hair is swell.  I love the length and hope I can tease mine to that height.  I am a little surprised that they choose not to do streaks of white or silver in her hair like the original Hasbro dolls.  I might add some of my own to make her a skunky bad ass.   I think the outfit turned out wonderfully though.  Her face sculpt is FANTASTIC and I look forward to seeing it as a model in the Color Infusion room at convention.  I adore the Japan skin-tone on her too.

Meet talented magician, illusionist and good friend of JEM AND THE HOLOGRAMS, Astral Eldrich! A smart and talented performance artist, Astral dazzles dumbfounded audiences with her amazing tricks and illusions while adding a little mysterious fun to their performances whenever she joins JEM AND THE HOLOGRAMS on tour! The central character of the season three JEM AND THE HOLOGRAMS episode titled "That Old Houdini Magic", Astral Eldrich captured every fan's heart with her enchanting bag of tricks!

Astral Eldrich is a 12.5-inch fully articulated vinyl doll with long rooted duo-toned hair and hand applied eyelashes. Produced for the first time in doll form, Astral comes dressed in a meticulously reproduced TV-show inspired costume. The fabric of her long magical jacket was precisely custom screen-printed to match her signature "lava-lamp" print as seen on the hit 80's TV series as closely as possible. But wait! Astral has more than one trick up her sleeve and she's ready to wow her fans with her magic hat, golden handcuffs (now you can lock Kimber and Raya together, just like on TV... Astral can come to the rescue!) and a full deck of miniature cards! A doll stand is included. For adult collectors ages 14 and up. 

Astrale!!!  Brain Explosion!  So Astrale was one of the dolls that Hasbro made a prototype for but  never produced. She was in only one episode in the third season of Jem (Old Houdini Magic) and she was a rival to the Stingers Rapture. In the speculation camp....she was considered a 'maybe'...but was desired by many.  While she might not make a whole lot of sense paired with Raya and Jetta as a "wave", Integrity definitely pleased a bunch of Jem fans with this one.  She is pretty spot on amaze-balls and better than anyone could have hoped for in terms of accuracy, execution, and bonus props.  Even with a sculpt re-use (Synergy...one of the best sculpts in my opinion and looking great here), she seems to be the runaway favorite of the wave.  With a smaller edition size of only 500, she might even sell out.  Plus...little teeny handcuffs.  The festive two-tone hair also gives us hope for the two-tone hair of Clash and the multi-colored hair of Danse!

Also, these are coming in March!  Weee!  Which means I can have fun teasing hair and posing while on maternity leave.  Also, fans are feeling pretty confident that we will indeed get more of the second line characters now that we have seen Astrale.  So it seems like Regine is likely.  I think people will go postal if we don't get Video, Clash, Danse, and Eric at some point this year.  I imagine we still have a chance at Techrat even..and of course, more Jem variants.  I still hold out hope for fashions too..in the meantime, I will make my own variants.
