All things aside, Integrity Toys have created some really nice Jem dolls. Wave 1 consisted of Jem, Jerrica, Rio, and Synergy. Prices may be higher than what most people are used to spending, but we'll always have the photos! So let's start.
Jem and the Holograms
So Kimber looks pretty cool. I am not completely crazy about her pants. I'm not sure what to think about the acid wash look. For some reason I recall her pants having a blue shimmer to them. But everything else works for me. I love the detail that has gone into her, and from what I have been reading on the fabulous site Jemcon.org apparently Integrity Toys has created unique face sculpts for each of the characters.
Aja is interesting. It is incredibly nice to see blue hair on a doll. I love the shade and think it is perfect. However I kinda wish the cut was different. Her hair almost looks like Jem's hair, minus the bangs. I think out of this wave Aja is my least favorite. Of course I don't even know why I am playing favorites as they all look fantastic, and if I could, I would purchase them all.
Shana is just a dream. I love the whole look. At first I wasn't sure about the hair, I thought it was maybe a bit too 'poofy.' But it has really grown on me. I love the outfit and everything about her. One of the things I have noticed about Integrity Toys is that they take elements of the old dolls but also update things in different ways. For instance none of the new dolls have the extreme made up faces like the old show had. The make up is still glam and fun but not as loud.
All together, the girls look so cool. The detail to their instruments is also really nice. I'm no expert in keytars and guitars, but they look really cool. The clothing looks to be really well made and speaking from experience, Integrity Toys makes sure their dolls have amazing articulation.
Jem and the Holograms
Here's everyone together. Oh goodness seeing this picture makes me wish for two things: a new show of some kind, and what Integrity will do with the Misfits.
This is probably my favorite photo of them. They just look so cool. I hope to at least get one of the Wave 2 dolls. The prices are up there. Most can be found for pre-order at $119. And for those who are interested, you can find registered Integrity dealers here. Pre-ordering these Jem dolls from registered Integrity dealers is the only way to purchase them. I also need to do a post on the Classic Jem from Integrity as she is one truly outrageous doll.
For those who were wanting to enjoy a Toy Chest Tuesday today, don't worry. I have been working on an all new Heroic Hottie for January and it is going to be a lot of fun. There will be something old and something new. Nothing borrowed, nor blue, but there will be some green. So enjoy the new Jem doll photos and get ready for even more cool stuff this week. Hope you are all doing well.
