With a pair of microprojector earrings and the words "showtime Synergy", Jerrica Benton's holographic computer transforms her into the "truly outrageous" Jem, the pinkhaired singer of the band The Holograms.
When Hasbro originally released the Jem doll line in the 80's with the music theme and punk hair colors, they clearly made a mark in the doll industry. And with the cartoon by Sunbow Productions, Jem became the biggest female star of 80's cartoons, and one of very few that had most episodes written by female writers, and even had a female head writer. Infact Jem at times even beat out all male-oriented cartoon shows in viewer ratings.
Ever since the 80's Jem has gathered fans across the world. And new official Jem products are still being released today, like a high quality collectors doll line by Integrity Toys, that is going strong since 2012. A live-action movie hit theaters in 2015. And a new hit comic arrived in 2015.
This fansite was started in 1997, as a tribute to the 1980's musical animated TV-series and doll line, and to the people and companies that made it all happen.
Here you can find in depth guides to the cartoon, reviews of the dolls and other collectibles, behind the scenes material, and other fun and informative features. And be sure to check back for updates about it all.
Have fun exploring this site!

A new amazing release from Integrity Toys!
Integrity Toys has presented their latest upcoming doll in the Jem line. This time they bring focus to one of the Misfits, Roxy from her iconic looks in the episode Roxy Rumbles.
For the first time a set of two full dolls and outfits of the same character in the same box. Roxy Rumbles comes with a bunch of miniature extras based on the cartoon look and story, like a set of jewelries in metal, a purse, two House of Glamour shopping bags and more.
Expected to ship in late winter 2022, and will first be available as a pre-order to W club members, and then a limited amount for pre-order from Sideshow.com. Note: Since this doll is not ready to ship yet, Sideshow does not yet have any information about this doll, you will have to wait until it's time for them to announce it, or check back on Rock Jem for an update.
Once the doll is shipped, Rock Jem will bring you a full review, with pictures and a description of all pieces included, all details about this particular look, comparisons to the cartoon look and previous dolls, packaging, all the official information, and alot more. The pages about the Integrity Toys Jem line here at Rock Jem, are under re-construction and will hopefully soon be complete for the entire line.
